Real Estate

New supply, attractive payment plans and the recent price and value correction have opened better deals for both homebuyers and investors in Dubai’s real estate market. Analysts say a majority of house-hunters are end users and are thus very keen on pricing. There is also a trend for those living in Dubai to move from renting and paying their landlord’s mortgages to buying their own property and paying off their own. This also means that most are finance buyers. Off-plan schemes are accordingly the most preferred product, given their competitive price.

Yungo provides comprehensive support to clients looking to enter the elaborate real estate sector and prides itself on its ability to provide invaluable assistance in both the investment and management arenas of the real estate market. This is evidenced in its continued success and the resulting positive feedback it regularly receives from both individuals and real estate development companies, many of whom have been clients for over 10 years.
