When we look at the current market trends, it’s quite clear that there is increasing confidence among both local and international HNWIs that Abu Dhabi real estate is abundant with opportunity and is a prime market for investment. Looking to the future, with mega-projects projects such as Jubail Islands and Ramhan Islands coming to fruition, it’s fair to say that exciting times lie ahead for the capital’s thriving property sector,” said Haider Ali Khan, CEO of Bayut and CEO of Dubizzle Group MENA.
