    This persistent upward trend in the Dubai property sales volume has resulted in prices increase which is expected to continue due to Expo, loan-to-mortgage and interest rate, loosening travel restrictions, introducing new visa rules, and the continuous government initiatives to make Dubai a better place to live and start new businesses.
