Dubai’s Latest Property Portal

With the Dubai property market recording high levels of growth and returns, also given Dubai’s reputation to stand out from the crowd, there isn’t a better time for these two features to be combined, this is exactly what Dubai’s hottest new portal aims to accomplish. This new and exciting project, offers a different kind of service to realtors, private sellers and potential investors in Dubai real estate and best of all, it’s free.

With so many Real Estate websites pertaining to the UAE that offer the same standard service to visitors, features listings of all the leading freehold developments in Dubai in an easy to use format, as well as a travel hub to book flights and hotels to the Country. All the information you need about buying and selling property, as well as life in Dubai is on hand in a one-stop-shop.

Mark Wallington, Managing Director for said he is certain that the Dubai Real Estate market needs a new angle and is confident that this new portal can create a niche for itself. “There are currently a large number of generic real estate websites available in the UAE and specifically Dubai. We are aware of this fact, and therefore set out to create a portal that takes the positive aspects of what’s available in the Dubai property market and go one step better. There are many factors to consider when designing a portal to promote your business or product. Not least of these is having a user friendly website where your customers can find the information they need or view your properties with ease, no useless animated intro’s or lack of information, we keep things as simple as we can so that our users can quickly and easily access the information on properties that interest them.”

Wallington also said that they have received a good response to the website already. “During our ‘soft’ launch we had over 300 property agent’s sign up and over 700 properties listed. This brilliant response goes to show that the Dubai Real Estate market is looking for a different class of property website to get their properties in the “shop window” he said. “Leading developments like the Burj Dubai and the Palm Jumeirah are really creating attention for the City as a business and tourism destination. Dubai has previously been recognised for being home to the world’s richest horse race, the Dubai shopping festival and the Rugby Sevens, but now it is property that attracts overseas interest the most.”

An important aspect of the is that both real estate agents and private sellers can place their property listings onto the website free of charge. The website is updated frequently and the best properties available on the market are regularly featured in the ‘Hot Properties’ section of the portal. Visitors are encouraged to get in contact with the company or agents who list them and can expect a swift response to any further enquiries they may have.

Laura Bentley, a marketing executive for the portal went on to say: “The website has been designed to help investors, sellers and buyers unite to check the latest properties on the market as easily as possible. The key feature of this site is to allow agents and private owners to list their properties at no cost but to get the best possible exposure.”

As the completion of more and more projects approaches, might just provide a solution to the difficulties that buyers and sellers in Dubai face from the many websites that just don’t offer an entire range of property services in this expanding sector
