According to an analysis by Luxhabitat Sotheby, based on data from the Dubai Land Department, the Emirate’s prime residential market saw a minimal surge in volume in Q1 2022 of 1.03 per cent at Dh17.28 billion compared to the previous quarter.

Around 5,258 apartments and 742 villas were sold in Q1 2022 in the Dubai prime residential market.
