Dubai's record-breaking property market shows no sign of slowing down through the summer of 2023. 

We have never witnessed a performance for the month of June like this, in terms of both sales transactions and value.

We saw nearly 10,500 property transactions, an increase of more than 18% compared to June 2022.

We also witnessed a total sales value of over AED 30B, an increase of nearly 35% compared to June 2022.

Mortgage Transactions and Value

We’ve seen an increase in mortgage transactions, with an 18% increase in the number of transactions compared to June 2022. The value of these transactions amounted to over AED 11B.


Price Changes

Compared to June 2022, property prices are on the rise for off-plan and ready apartments and villas. 

Most notably, 0ff-plan villa prices have risen by over 30%, up to AED 2.4M. This is in part due to more luxury villa communities being released, along with easy payment plans. 

For example, The Stellas by Murano in Al Furjan is a hot-selling villa community featuring private pools and elevators, starting at AED 7.2M, with an easy post-handover payment plan. 


Price Changes by Property Type

The median price per square foot is just over AED 1.4K, which is the highest on record for June.
