Study: in­vestors pre­fer prop­erty

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

Real estate is most peo­ple’s pre­ferred in­vest­ment, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey of home buy­ers and in­vestors in the GCC and Egypt. The Real Estate Barom­e­ter study, con­ducted by mar­ket re­search firm YouGov, found that more than half of re­spon­dents (54 per cent) would choose real estate as their pre­ferred in­vest­ment cat­e­gory, fol­lowed by stocks (13 per cent) and pre­cious metals (11 per cent). The re­search also in­di­cated that the UAE is one of the most ap­peal­ing coun­tries in the world in which to in­vest in real estate, with 65 per cent of re­spon­dents cit­ing it as the most at­trac­tive op­tion within the Mid­dle East, while 64 per cent be­lieved that Dubai is the prime city in which to buy prop­erty in the re­gion. The sur­vey was con­ducted in part­ner­ship with In­forma, the or­gan­is­ers of prop­erty ex­hi­bi­tion Ci­tyscape Global, which takes place at Dubai World Trade Cen­tre from Septem­ber 6-8.
