Bin Mejren: Good news for the real estate sector

Commenting on the results, His Excellency Sultan Butti bin Mejren – Director General of DLD – said: "Our report for the first half of this year bears promising results for professionals in the real estate sector, as despite global economic pressures, Dubai has once again reaffirmed its leadership of regional markets and driven renewed growth in the region." 

Bin Mejren confirmed that the 26% increase in transactions and the 17% increase in value is an unrivalled success for the sector. The success demonstrates the wisdom of the economic policies set by the government – particularly those that have contributed to the protection of all parties and the preservation of real estate rights, as these have encouraged real estate investment and safeguarded the growth of a transparent, sustainable and secure real estate sector.  

Bin Mejren added: "Establishing strong foundations for the sustainable growth of our real estate sector has been largely focused on preserving the rights of all investors and providing a secure environment where their transactions can take place in a transparent matter. This has allowed the sector to grow by increasing investor confidence and heightening the appeal of Dubai's property market."
