Sharjah continues to become more affordable, with rents and sales prices falling – Bayut H1 report
Sharjah continues to become more affordable, with rents and sales prices falling – Bayut H1 report

July 22, 2018:   Rents and sales fell for Sharjah apartments from H2 2017 to H1 2018 accordingly to a recently published report of Bayut.com, the leading property portal in the UAE.

 

Rental highlights: 

  • Rents fell for both villas and apartments.
  • The largest decreases were in Al Nahda, where the average 1-bedroom apartment price fell by 16.2%.

 

Sales highlights:

  • The steepest price falls were seen for Al Nahda, where the average for a 2-bedroom apartment fell by 14.3%.

 

There was good news for both buyers and renters in Sharjah as prices fell in most areas from H2 2017 to H1 2018 according to Bayut.com.

 

However, changes to property laws in Sharjah announced in April, which allow non-residents to own property in the emirate – may see increased interest in property sales as the year progresses.

 

Apartment sales

Decreases in average sales prices were, apart from in Al Nahda, on average between 1% and 10%.

 

Apartment rentals

In addition to price decreases in Al Nahda, prices also fell by 8.9% for 2-beds in Al Khan.

 

Average prices in top areas

Al Majaz was the most popular for apartment sales in H1 2018, with the average price for a 2-bed property reaching AED 741k. Al Qasimia, which was the most popular area for apartments rentals, still saw the average rental price for a 2-bed property fall by 11% to AED 33k.

 

Most popular sub-communities

For Bayut users, there were clear favourites among certain neighbourhoods within Sharjah’s communities. For example, within Al Qasimia, Al Nud was the most popular neighbourhood, receiving 94.17% of all searches. Lagoon Tower was the most searched in Al Mamzar, accounting for 51.75% of searches. While in Al Taawun, Al Taawuun Street received the most searches – 70.14%.

 

In Al Majaz, Al Majaz 2 came top with 52.61% of searches.

Haider Ali Khan, CEO of Bayut, said: “Sharjah prices are at a very attractive point and present a good opportunity for investors to diversity their investment portfolio.”

 

Forecast for Q3

Khan added: “As the summer months roll in, we expect prices to stay stable in Sharjah through this quarter. With more off-plan projects picking up in Sharjah, with some allowing ownership by folks from outside the GCC, this will help generate more interest and transactions going forward.”
