Dugasta Properties, a Dubai-based developer, has launched a game-changing scheme for home buyers at Al Haseen Residences that guarantees 8% annual return on investment in the first five years. The developer also offers a buy-back option after the fifth year to sell off the properties back to the developer.
Moreover, the integrated package comes with a service charge waiver for the first five years, that amounts to a healthy net saving. Al Haseen Residences, a mid-rise two-building project located next to Al Maktoum International Airport, offers 217 apartments that have been built and delivered by Dugasta Properties.
Prices of ready-to-move-in apartments start as low as AED342,000 ($93,188) for a studio and AED1,023,000 for a two-bedroom apartment – way below the current market prices – that is going to double in the next few years due to the massive development taking place next to Al Maktoum International Airport close to where Al Haseen Residences are located.
With such low prices, investors could benefit from the expected price appreciation in the next few years due to growing demand for homes around Dubai South where the world’s largest greenfield airport – Al Maktoum International – is being developed that will create a new city in the area.
As per the 8% guaranteed return on investment scheme an investor in a property priced, for example, at AED1 million for a two-bedroom apartment will receive a guaranteed AED80,000 return every year for the first five years and subsequently receive a guaranteed total of AED400,000 in five years, regardless of the market conditions – and then if he wish to sell the property after five years, the developer could buy back the property.
“This effectively means that the home buyer or investor would get back 8% of their investment per annum for five years,” said Tauseef Khan, Founder and Chairman of Dugasta Properties.
“As per the scheme, we are also offering the buy-back option of the property after five years, if the buyer/investor decides to sell it off. Although properties are currently selling at a higher price, we have decided to enter the market at a comfortable and attractive price point that will attract the middle-income families to buy their dream homes and we believe this price will be sustainable in the long run even in the case of softening of the market.”
He added: “As we celebrate the Year of Sustainability in the UAE and prepare to host COP28 Summit in November, it is important to practice sustainability in all aspects. For us, economic sustainability is more crucial than environmental sustainability as we need to sell properties at a price that market can support in the long run.
“Hence, we have decided to start the price from as low as Dh342,000 for a studio, although we could sell at a much higher price. I believe, this price is very affordable and sustainable and the market could support this price even in the face of a soft landing sometime near future.”
