First Overview of the UAE Property Market

The UAE Property Report is Savills first comprehensive view of the United Arab Emirates, assessing the state of the current real estate market across the country. The report provides the latest overview across residential, commercial and industrial sectors, with research and insight from the Savills team which operates across three offices in the heart of the UAE.
