average villa rents increased by 9 per cent.

Elaine Jones, chief executive

established quality communities showing increases in values and higher
transaction volumes.

apartment now rents for AED90,000 (£15,800) to AED120,000 (£21,050) per annum.

“Tenants are relocating in search
of value for money. One and two bedroom apartments as well as three and four
bedroom villas are the preferred unit types. In terms of rates, quality well
managed developments, will continue to set the pace,” added Jones.
