    Indians were the largest foreign buyers of property in Dubai in past six months. As per Dubai Land Department, deals worth $1.6 billion were registered involving Indians.

    “Indian nationals are the largest group of foreign investors in Dubai’s real estate and as both the UAE and India strengthen strategic relationship, we see a greater synergy and increased investment by Indian nationals in UAE,” Hindustan Times quoted Dawood Al Shezawi, the head of Dubai Property Festival’s organising committee, as saying.

    There were a whopping 3218 transactions happened in Dubai involving Indians in the first half of 2018. In fact, only Emiratis ($1.85 billion) bought more property than Indians who in turn were followed by Saudi Arabians, who made 1,415 investments worth $1 billion.

    The maximum properties were bought in Business Bay, followed by Dubai Marina and Al Merkadh.

    It is claimed that Indians prefer to invest their money in Dubai as it is easier to register a property in Dubai than in India. Also, a buyer is entitled to a residence visa on investing Dh1 million ($270,000) in the city.

    It is also reported that the property in Dubai is cheaper than the property of major Indian cities.

    Also, the fact that the apartments in Dubai are sold in terms of carpet area with free car parks, whereas in India, apartments are sold as built-up and car parks are sold separately, buyers are finding the Dubai properties much enticing.

    A major reason why Indians form the largest foreign buyers may be the fact that Indian nationals reportedly form the largest expatriate population in the UAE and are the largest foreign owners of business establishments in the region.
