SOBHA Group lists Pakistanis as major investors for real estate investments in Dubai
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 16 October, 2016: The U.A.E.’s thriving property market is mostly dominated by foreign investors, including Pakistani nationals. The total value of foreign investment for 2016 in the Dubai real estate market approached AED 44 billion, from 22,834 investors of 136 nationalities. Pakistani nationals ranked 3rd with a contribution of AED 4.4 billion worth of property transactions across 3,372 investors.
When it comes to real estate investment, UAE remains to be one of the most preferred destinations for most Pakistani investors looking to buy property abroad. Major reasons why Pakistani investors are attracted to purchasing assets in the UAE are their options of a safe investment diversification, economic and political stability and potential for capital appreciation.
The biggest reason for this being the proximity of Dubai to Pakistan, but there are several other factors such as low crime rate, no tax on rental income, flexible payment plans and property investor visa facility. Sobha Group, one of UAE’s top real estate developers, is one of the most preferred companies to invest with owing to the unparalleled quality along with the unmatched location of its projects which is also set on the iconic Dubai Water Canal.
Sobha Group targets Pakistanis as one of their biggest investors, which is why they have scaled up their marketing activities in Pakistan.
