Off-Plan Property in Dubai
We carefully vet the offers of Developers and work with only the most reputable and secure companies that operate in your favoured location. Payment schemes currently on offer allow you to buy property off-plan, ie. before or during construction when the price remains low, with deposits of only 10% of the property price.
By the time the property is finished, prices rise due to market forces and the greater general appeal of a completely finished property that is ready to move into. Investors therefore sell the property on to another property purchaser and in doing so, enjoy some excellent returns. While estimates vary, many analysts put growth in the five years as much as 200% representing a tripling of prices.
Investors should however exercise due diligence and choose wisely, making sure that the property is located in an area where they will resell quickly and easily or where there is a high rental demand for their buy-to-let option. With an off-plan investment, even in the “worst case” scenario if the property cannot be sold upon completion, the final balance due can often be financed by the developer himself, typically over 4 years or more. Furthermore, the rental income may pay off the finance of this loan and yield further eventual return on investment.
How can property be cheaper if bought off-plan – How does it work?
In order to limit financial risk and debts, the developers of any project will wish to sell units off-plan. They understand that if buyers cannot see a physical property at the beginning, they will demand a lower price, while relying purely on the developer’s reputation, the property location, artistic impressions and computer simulations on which to base their decision to purchase.
In addition to the excellent off-plan price, some highly beneficial finance structures are in place. You sometimes need to pay only around 20-40% of the purchase price in the form of a deposit, while the rest is payable upon completion. This may be financed by a mortgage if necessary.
