Dubai Palm Island Background

Low interest rates and poor stock markets are making investment in The Dubai Palm attractive. The UAE government assists the real estate market, attracting wealthy immigrants to the city: much property is retailed below market value.

The purchasers of apartments and villas on Dubai Palm Island started to move in at the end of 2005. Property on the islands is due to take four years to complete. The project is being developed by a company titled Dubai Palm Developers. The supply of UAE property is not keeping up pace with demand. Luxury apartments on Dubai Palm Island are for sale to foreigners as well as Emiratis.
