“Indians truly understand the worth of property investment and that’s why they are always enthusiastic about this asset class. The exhibition received a very encouraging response and surpassed expectations in terms of visitor footfall and even the business enquiries. This year, the footfall was 24% higher than last year and even the enquiries generated increased by AED 600 million. This only strengthens our ties with India and the trust of Indians that they have shown in Dubai as an investment destination”, said HE Majida Ali Rashid, Assistant Director General, Dubai Land Department (DLD).
“We are already excited about our next show in India next year and believe Indians will continue to remain the number one non-GCC property buyers of real estate in Dubai. They are indeed the biggest contributor to the Dubai growth story”, added Her Excellency.
“Overall, Indians have invested AED126bn so far in all these years into Dubai realty. Indians are looking at profitable dividends in the form of rents, resale value and other benefits. Investors here enjoy no lock-in period with no capital gains tax and no property tax, buyers also want to secure assets ahead of the Expo 2020 boom”, said Majid Saqer Al Marri, Senior Director, Real Estate Investment Management and Promotion Center, Dubai Land Department.
