London, United Kingdom, March 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Dubai shows up on the tourist radar as the third most popular destination for British holiday makers. When you add to that the declared investment trends from the U.K. alone and hoteliers plans for construction, it is easy to understand the continued buoyancy in the market.
Having said that, Rob Graham, Chairman of BuyPropertyDubai.Co.UK cautions that location remains the prime scrutiny issue in the region and outweighs other considerations for investors.
Although a recent entry into the realty market, his company is already the subject of a take over approach from a large property investment fund and so his opinions probably have a value.
“Dubai hoteliers feel they need another 200,000 rooms to cope with the year on year growing demand. This is the best signal for potential investors as these companies know their market.” Graham believes the Northern part of Dubai, Jumeirah, The Lakes, Jebal Ali and the various Palm developments are good targets. Not just for their recreational facilities in the beaches, golf, sailing and allied options but also because of the connectivity to allied Emirates.
Graham’s company is rather different from the regular realty office, offering a bespoke location finding facility to retained buyers even before they visit. Graham continues, “Our multi lingual team know the market. We feel that our customers time is valuable and so we offer a service which maximises the use of their visit. We first define their requirements and produce a short list of targets. On arrival, their time is our time and a tour of properties is arranged and funding options discussed. Dubai is such a wonderful destination that we feel it is important to free up as much of clients time to savour the environment.” His team can arrange hotel or other space for visiting customers, personal drivers, etc.
This makes a refreshing change from the regular wham, bam, thank you mammy service which has become the norm in this thriving market.
Graham confirms that the retainer for this luxury service is deducted from final sales commission. Dubai just grew up.
