Quarterly stats taken from Reidin Please note we do not take any responsibility for the authenticity of the figures. 


The above statistics show a very healthy number of transactions for Q2 2021 with record breaking months and sales prices. From analysing several different consultancies reports the prices on the Palm have certainly turned with the market now being dictated by sellers. 

Apartment sales make up the bulk of transactions with a number of high value transactions for the boutique developments such as Palme Couture, Royal Atlantis, One Palm and W Residences.

Buyers with budgets of 0m to 3m AED are dominating the secondary market with 56% of transactions. 29% of transactions were for 5m + AED which shows a very healthy demand for the luxury sector and a big increase from the previous quarters. 

Villa and townhouse sales remained strong continuing from the Q1 2021 momentum,  and prices saw a sharp increase compared to the previous quarters, villa prices in general have seen an increase of up to 40 to 50% and in some cases 70/80-% on garden homes over the past 9 months. Apartment prices have incrased around 10/20% within the same timeframe dependant on the development.

The villa market has always proven to have its own micro market and with so many transactions happening we are seeing price expectation increasing with the demand being higher than the current villa supply. This has been evident with both sales and rentals transactions. 

The Standout transactions were the sale of the three XX11 Carat villas which took the top 3 spots for the priciest properties sold on the Palm. With the top spot a record-breaking sale of 120m AED (Second costliest villa sold on the Palm and costliest outside of the fronds) This boutique high end project has seen a lot of interest in the last 6 months with a total 5 villa sales this quarter alone.

The top 5 resales transactions alone equated to over 464m AED worth of transactions which is an incredible number highlighting the shift in luxury transaction.
