May 2002 was a landmark month. The Dubai government decided to pave the way for expatriates to own property in the cosmopolitan and glittering city state by legalizing foreign ownership of property in Dubai. This opened the gates to a large influx of wealth into Dubai as well as gave a tremendous boost to real estate development. Property builders built apartment blocks, condominiums, villas, mansions… they were sea facing or skyscrapers or had manicured lawns. There were so many choices. People who bought property during this real estate explosion were not only end users but also those who bought the property as an investment, hoping for their investments to reap them rich dividends. As a result there are a large number of available properties for sale in Dubai Properties are not just homes to live in, they are also commodities that can be traded in.
