How to get an ROI of 100% by investing in Dubai real estate
100% ROI on resale real estate in Dubai? Many may think that this is just another clickbait headline or the antics of marketers. Many, but not all. There is a widespread belief in the investor community that those who promise investment return percentages higher than the S&P 500 index are speculatively exaggerating, luring inexperienced investors and their money into high-risk projects or inherently losing startups. But today we're going to dispel that myth. In this article, we will tell you how our agency has achieved such results by investing in Dubai and Abu Dhabi real estate for our clients. Everything as you like: figures, facts, money. But let's talk about everything in order.
What are the current trends in the real estate market in Dubai?
Several aspects influence the price per square meter in Dubai: location, developed infrastructure, transport accessibility and proximity to tourist areas. Housing on the coast and in the tourist areas of the city attracts investors, providing prospects for both renting and resale.
The starting price of studios in prestigious areas - from $150,000. Interestingly, investors do not have to pay the entire amount at once: in the secondary market are available installments of up to seven years without interest, and developers sometimes offer resale options with a down payment of 10-30% of the value.
Why buying real estate in Dubai is a profitable investment
Investing in Dubai real estate can be profitable through two key avenues: resale value appreciation and rental income. It is difficult to say which method is more profitable, as much depends on individual strategies and investor preferences.
When investing with the intention of resale, investors usually buy apartments in the early stages of construction in order to sell them at a higher price closer to the completion of the project. In prestigious areas of the city, such as near the beach and in the center, the initial cost of one-bedroom apartments - from $350,000. Usually, by the time the objects are ready, their price increases by 30-50%. Developers' offers of interest-free installments are an additional advantage, increasing the potential for resale profits.
In the rental context, Dubai with its abundance of tourists and business travelers offers significant rental income opportunities. Investors can secure a steady income by renting out their properties for both short and long periods. The choice of investment method depends on each investor's goals and strategy, taking into account the unique benefits and risks of each approach.

The article provides useful tips and strategies for ambitious investors who want to succeed in the Dubai real estate market, and discusses the Bilbao Effect in Abu Dhabi.
Where are the promised 100% profits?
Within the current year, among other achievements, Antonina successfully completed two projects related to the resale of primary housing, bringing a return on investment of 100%. These projects are not the only ones on her list of successes, but they are the ones on which we were able to provide our clients with record high returns on investment.

How to choose profitable real estate investments in Dubai
The main thing when choosing is to analyze consumer demand and the advantages of buying. Experts advise not to give in to emotions and personal preferences when choosing a project or areas. The basis of the strategy is that an investor does not need to invest the entire amount at once in the primary market, which avoids "freezing" capital and diversifies risks by investing in several objects at the same time.
We recommend paying attention to such projects:
- The Orchard Place
- Gardeniya Bay
- Yas Golf Collection
- 330 Crescent Riverside
- Saadiyat Lagoons
- Creek Vistas Grande
- Mykonos Damac Lagoons
