Propertytrader.ae, a real estate portal launched in January 2014 is set to become the primary resource for everybody interested in the Dubai property market. With a database of over 30,000 property listings throughout Dubai and the UAE, the portal provides extensive details for buying and renting opportunities across both residential and commercial sectors. With an ever expanding portfolio of properties, an intuitive website design and ranking in over 55 countries, the portal has quickly attracted many of Dubai’s prominent estate agents including Aston Pearl, Binayah Real Estate, Dacha, Elysian, Haus & Haus, Emirates Homes and Lannhill Real Estate within the few month of its launch.
Each listing provides the buyer with detailed descriptions of the property, high definition photographs and useful details of the surrounding area (street views, maps, metro & bus services and general amenities) are included to provide the prospective buyer with all the necessary information.
Mohammad Ali Khan, Chief Technology Officer, commented: “The portal has been designed to make the buying process as simple as possible, providing the buyer with direct contact details of the agents and the ability to save, print and share in social media. The site is equipped with many useful tools including a mortgage calculator with Equated Monthly Instalments that calculates what you can expect to spend on your loan and an area price index, which represents an area’s maximum, minimum and average prices.”
The upcoming ‘Developments’ section displays property plans from reputed developers, allowing potential buyers to search for off plan properties throughout Dubai. Development Director, Adnan Ali commented: “According to the Dubai 2014 census of Municipal Corporation, the number of buildings under construction was greater than 51,900 properties. The ‘Developments’ section inpropertytrader.ae will provide buyers with a specialised searching method for under construction properties and an increase in buying opportunities.”
In 2014, Dubai’s 10,000+ residential apartment sales accounted for 270 million AED. Sales Manager, Torik Holmes added, “Dubai is increasingly attracting investment opportunities internationally, benefiting from tax-free jurisdiction where you can buy freehold land, with Britons alone investing £1.6 billion in 2014. Propertytraders.ae plays a pivotal role in building trust between buyer and seller and we intend to help even more customers find properties across Dubai and expand our global reach by increasing the Dubai property database by 50% over the next 3 or 4 months.”
