Real Estate and Commercial Property

After bouncing back from the global financial crisis of 2008, the UAE is currently the largest construction market in the GCC. It is home to a well established and fast expanding real estate and property investment sector.

There are challenges, of course, including financial and environmental regulation, cost variables, uncertainties around the global economic outlook, and emerging risks such as cyber security. But in one of the most active, well funded and stable property markets in the region, this is a time of opportunity for UAE real estate professionals and property investors.
