The Middle East’s biggest property show is here again
The fourth Home Owner Dubai exhibition is being held from Thursday 26 January to Saturday 28 January 2006 at the Madinat Arena, Jumeirah, Dubai. Home Owner Dubai, organised by Motivate Events, is the Number One exhibition and seminar for residential property in the UAE and across the Gulf. 80% of the exhibition space has already been confirmed.
Set to be one of the biggest residential property events in 2006, the exhibition will be a one-stop-shop of information for the investor. Due to its success in the previous three exhibitions, Home Owner Dubai will double in size in 2006.
More than 4,000 visitors attended Home Owner Dubai 2005, with 86% actively looking to purchase or invest in a property. One exhibitor last year sold out the 160 properties he brought to the show over the three days of the exhibition.
Commitment to property is as strong as ever. Rental prices rose, on average, by 38% in 2005. What’s more, ownership of holiday, retirement and second homes, as well as the emergence of a resale market (which can now boast premiums between 10 and 25%), illustrate the activity in and the strength of residential property markets in the region.
Simon O’Herlihy, General Manager - Marketing for Home Owner Dubai, says: “Investors interested in property in the Gulf Region are very keen to get the right advice and guidance. The main reason why Home Owner Dubai continues to be so popular with home buyers is because it brings together such a wide range of different exhibitors and experts under one roof. It’s not just property developers that visitors will find at Home Owner Dubai. With property rental prices currently soaring, the current demand for freehold property is very high and resale is emerging as a very important sector. ”
Exhibitors at the event will cover all aspects of the home buying process, including:
• New developments.
• Properties for resale.
• Mortgage brokers.
• Property investment companies.
As well as services for the new homeowner including:
• Garden landscaping.
• Swimming pools.
• Interior design.
The event also boasts a programme of information-packed seminars presented by leading property experts, providing visitors with the opportunity to gain first-hand advice on a whole range of house buying topics.
