While Dubai remains a hot and one of the favourite destinations of Bollywood. It has definitely fascinated other strata of India as well.
As per the Dubai real estate data, No other national has purchased property to the tune Indians have in 2011.
Indians have topped the list of first-time property buyers in Dubai in 2011, having bought properties worth 2.1 billion dirhams (Rs 292 crore), Dubai Land Department data has revealed.
The Indians topped the list of new investors in Dubai properties and conducted 927 transactions worth 2.1 billion dirhams. This represents 16 per cent of the overall value of transactions carried out by new investors,” the department said.
While it did not mention the nationality of the second largest investors, the department said the UAE nationals came third, having invested 1.575 billion dirhams (Rs 219 crore).
According to the department the new money flowing into the Dubai property market last year totalled 13.13 billion dirhams (Rs 1,825 crore).
Meanwhile, Asian investors formed 68 per cent of the overall number of investors in the sector, with the UAE nationals topping the list with 35 per cent representation of the overall number of Asian landlords, followed by Indians at 20 per cent.
In a recent report, property broking and real estate consulting firm Jones Lang LaSalle said the Indian property market is poised to attract about US$3 billion, almost double last year’s US$1.6 billion, from overseas buyers this year.
The Indian property market will see more investment from overseas this year as it still remains an attractive investment destination globally.
Of this, one-third would be from home buyers and the balance from investors. This is despite the fact that property prices in India are at an all-time high.
According to a recent National Housing Bank (NHB) survey, property prices in big Indian cities have increased by as much as 43 per cent to 166 per cent in the last four years.
NHB, wholly owned by the Reserve Bank of India, lends to home-mortgage companies. It also regulates and refinances social housing programmes. In its report, the bank said Chennai had seen the highest rise in prices at 166 per cent. Bhopal was second with a hike of 117 per cent and Mumbai was ranked third with an increase of 87 per cent.
What then brings overseas investment to Indian property, when prices are skyrocketing? The answer is simple: Despite the global turmoil because of the financial crisis, the Indian economy has remained robust, largely due to domestic-driven demand.
According to Jones Lang LaSalle, India’s strong economic growth, rapid urbanisation, growing middle-class population, demographic advantage and increased thrust on infrastructure has worked in its favour. Buying property is especially popular among Indians living abroad, who all seem to want a piece of the homeland. That is why Indian property shows are burgeoning around the globe.
