Why Africans should start Investing in the UAE Real Estate market - Blythe & Company

The United Arab Emirates presents a lot of Real Estate Investments opportunities to global Investors and would continue to be an attractive choice over other Investments around the globe. There are a couple of reasons why Africans should start diversifying their Investment portfolio to include the UAE Real Estate.

Hedging against inflation and currency devaluation

The dollar has been gaining strength over most African currencies YOY. For instance, the Naira has continue to see devaluation against the Dollar. Buying Real Estate in the UAE is a great way to hedge against the losses that could be incurred due to currency deprecation. The UAE currency (Dirham) is pegged to the dollar which makes it a great hedge against any market fluctuations. Some of the pushbacks we have gotten when comparing African investments to UAE investment is the capital appreciation of investments back in Africa, while we agree that this is true the high rate of inflation nullifies the profit in the long run.

Attractive Investment Yield 

The UAE Real Estate market do not only provide an exciting Return on Investments but also provide increased capital gain. The recent market spike after 2020 is an attestation to the profit that could be realised by Investors in the UAE Real Estate market, the average residential property have seen over 10% increase in appreciation since January 2020 under balanced economic conditions. Property rentals are at all time high which has Increased Return on Investments for existing Investors. Overall it is a win-win scenario for both short and long term Investors.

Diverse Investment opportunities

There is not a short of residential, commercial, hotels, labour camps, full buildings etc. Some of these Real Estate Investments even provide fixed annual returns for a defined period of time which is mostly attractive to risk averse investors who would like a form of security before taking the leap.

Flexible payment options

Most of the investments in Africa requires Investors paying a heavy chunk of the downpayment and even the full amount of the property price regardless of the completion status of the building. This is such a high barrier to entry that has discouraged a lot of people from owning a property. In the UAE, properties have attractive payment plans that encourages Investors to spread their payments over the course of the construction.
