Just a few years back, Dubai’s real estate bubble had many investors fearing to get their toes wet. In effect, many of the barriers prevalent during that bubble are a thing of the past now as a number of safeguards have been put in place.

As of summer 2014, among those safeguards were stiffer regulations imposed by the Dubai Land Department as well as the UAE Central Bank which started bearing fruit. Prices saw better stabilization, effectively putting a cap on a near-out of control price growth rush that would have made it difficult for the property sector in Dubai to prevent itself from slipping into bubble territory again.

Today, buyer interest and confidence in Dubai properties is more positive than ever, as genuine investors set their sights on exploring a plethora of market options at their disposal.
