Just out of interest isn't Hamptons MENA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Emaar Properties, which in turn is 32% owned by the Dubai government.

Therefore, hardly an independent assessment of rises in prices across the board. I would say Emaar's developments have fared the best in terms of price recovery, no doubt, but I would question the level of increase on the Palm Jumeirah, given all the adverse publicity that has negated the lifestyle element, generated by the master developer's actions there!

There are also still massive pockets of new Dubai property that are not doing nearly as well, and there are still any number of villas and apartments yet to be delivered, if ever, leaving their good faith buyers standing out in the rain, figuratively speaking that is, before we start crowing about how wonderful the property market is these days.

The recovery for Dubai real estate is very strong and real, more than any people?s imagination, but from the point of investment view, it is less attraction now in 2013 compared that it was in 2012 and 2011, the net ROI of apartment is low at 4% in down town area, it does make no sense for investors, there are better option in London,
But the return of investment for the service apartments (the address) is high at 10%! More and more new developments are launched for serviced apartment, this may create another bubble
