Dubai villa prices fall to lowest in decade


DUBAI – Housing prices in Dubai fell to their lowest levels in more than a decade, according to new data from UAE-based property firm Cavendish Maxwell.

The average villa is now trading for less than it did following the financial crisis that hit Dubai in 2010.

The average price of homes also fell more than 15 percent compared to prices last year, according to the report.

The average single-family home price sunk 24 percent over the past year to Dh1.82 million, according to Property Monitor by Cavendish Maxwell.

“The annual decline in house prices was more pronounced in communities such as IMPZ, Arabian Ranches, Emirates Living, Discovery Garden and Dubai Silicon Oasis, where house prices declined by more than 16 percent on average,” the company said in its report.

On Palm Jumeirah, prices have slipped by 14 percent over the past year. Dubai Marina has seen average home prices decline by 13.5 percent since June 2018, according to the report. ICA/Expat Media
