● Dubai has moved up the ranks in JLL’s Global Real Estate Transparency Index 2020 from 40th to 36th. According to the report, the most significant initiative launched in 2019 was the creation of an official transaction-based index, Mo’asher, by Dubai Land Department, in partnership with Property Finder.
● In June, real estate sales transactions grew by 64%, with an average of around 570 properties sold in Dubai every seven days.
● In Q2 2020, the Dubai overall index rose by 0.79%, the Dubai apartment index rose by 0.58%, and the Dubai villa/ townhouse index remained unchanged. 
Dubai, UAE, 11 August 2020 - Dubai Land Department, in cooperation with Property Finder, launched the fourth edition of Mo’asher, Dubai’s official sales price index. The base year for Mo’asher is 2012 and the base month for the monthly index is January 2012, with the base quarter for the quarterly index being Q1 2012.
A strong in June laid the foundation for a faster recovery, and we are seeing patterns of a V-shaped recovery, which is characterised by a rapid rise following a decline; we are currently back to the transaction levels of February and early March 2020. In Q2 2020, Mo’asher showed a 0.79% rise compared to Q1 2020 and 15.3% compared to the base year Q1 2012.
The monthly index scored 1.113 in June 2020 compared to 1.121 in May 2020, with an index value of AED 1.06 million. 
In June 2020, the overall monthly index recorded 1.113 and an index value of AED 1,066,791. This is a decrease of 0.09% since the beginning of the year and a decrease of 0.7% month-on-month. However, if we look at the quarterly index and compare Q1 and Q2, the index number has increased by 0.8% from 1.144 to 1.153 with an index value of AED 1,072,450. 
In June 2020, the monthly apartment index recorded 1.179 and an index value of AED 1,018,974. However, if we look at the quarterly index and compare Q1 and Q2, the index number has increased by +0.58% from 1.206 to 1.213, with an index value of AED 1,026,424. 
In June 2020, the monthly villas/townhouses index recorded 1.040 and an index value of AED 1,628,315. This is a decrease of 1.79% since the beginning of the year and a decrease of 1.89% month-on-month. However, if we look at the quarterly index and compare Q1 and Q2, the index number has not changed at all and has stayed at 0.991, with an index value of AED 1,636,095. 
Encouraging opinions
HE Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of DLD, commented: “This data that inspires hope in the hearts of the various parties confirms the facts that everyone has agreed on, most prominently the well-established rules on which the Dubai real estate market is based upon, which was consolidated by the strong infrastructure and transparent legislation that ensured the enhancement of confidence among investors across all levels. We expect the market to grow in H2 2020 following the outbreak of the pandemic and for preparations made by the emirate for various activities to return to normal, making certain to apply precautionary measures that would depend on the public’s awareness. According to the same report, Mo’asher constitutes an important step that helps Dubai achieve further progress in this aspect, given the adoption of a single index that can be widely used by all market participants.”
Bin Mejren added: “On the other hand, Dubai’s movement up the ranks in JLL’s Global Real Estate Transparency Index 2020 from 40th to 36th is expected to contribute to an increase in foreign direct investment and enhanced sector transparency. Dubai continues to make progress in its surroundings, while continuing to improve the availability of market data to reach the highest ranks and enter global competitiveness in the field of real estate transparency.”
Majida Ali Rashid, CEO of the Real Estate Promotion and Investment Management Sector at DLD, said: “JLL’s Global Real Estate Transparency Index 2020 highlighted the prestigious position held by Dubai, ranking first in the MENA region as the most transparent real estate market. This had a significant impact on the growth of the volume of foreign direct investment as the real estate sector acquired a large share of it, which prompts us to coordinate with all concerned parties to meet the aspirations of real estate investors in accordance with the best international standards and practices to preserve Dubai’s image and its internationally prestigious reputation. On the other hand, we have taken note of the diversification of offers to suit different segments and the provision of flexible payment plans to attract the most likely buyers. Moreover, we continue to coordinate with the Higher Committee for Real Estate Planning to understand the market situation and the needs and expectations of the various parties.”
Michael Lahyani, CEO and Founder of Property Finder, commented: “Dubai continues to strengthen its position as the most transparent real estate market in MENA. Mo’asher constitutes a potentially important step forward for Dubai as it results in the establishment of a single index that is widely used by all market participants. It is Property Finder and Dubai Land Department’s shared vision to provide enhanced data transparency to the real estate market that led to this success. The three-point increase in the JLL Transparency index shows the value Mo’ asher has for the UAE market and how it will ultimately increase foreign direct investment. This is a proud moment for Property Finder as we have created and worked on something that has had a direct impact and will have a long-lasting positive impact on the Dubai Real Estate Market.”
The most important results 
These results were achieved despite the fact Dubai was on full lockdown in April, partially in May, and didn’t start opening up fully until June. Hence, the entire Q2 was affected by COVID-19. When it comes to real estate sales transactions, Dubai saw 5,605 sales transactions in Q2 2020 worth AED 11.05 billion. The secondary market saw 40% of the transactions in Q2, while off-plan accounted for 60% of the transactions. In June, the volume of sales transactions was 2,361 worth AED 4.9 billion and the secondary market, for the first time since the lockdown began, had higher sales transactions than off-plan transactions at the end of Q2.
In conclusion, the data revealed by Mo’asher show the start of the market’s recovery in Q2 2020, and is expected to continue in Q3, albeit at a relatively slow pace at this time of the year. The government initiatives and the stimulus packages they contained remain the primary motive for achieving further recovery and helping the market to continue this trend.
