UAE online property searches dominated by Dubai

Dollar and Euro Currency

New research shows that the property market in Dubai is attracting the most interest all of the UAE for potential buyers who use the internet to look for investment possibilities.

Searches on both dedicated property websites and Google over the past year have focused on “Dubai property” whereas some general UAE-related property keyword phrases received no searches at all.

Internet information seekers looked for the phrases "Dubai apartments" and "apartments in Dubai" the most, with houses also occurring in a significant amount of other searches.

In 2012 the northern hemisphere springtime was the period of most activity, with the time between the months of March and May showing the highest number of searches.

Searches for "Dubai property" remained steady overall throughout the year, although more general property searches for the country fell off towards the end of the year.

Early data from this year shows that by February 2013 the overall number had climbed back to peak figures.

Interest in the Dubai Marina area and its developments seems to be the most popular for refined specific searches, accounting for more than 25% of the total. The desert resort Arabian Ranches is the second most popular location, accounting for 10% of searches for Dubai.

The major urban city environments of Sharjah and Abu Dhabi are also proving popular, accounting for 9.54% of searches and 3.22% respectively and therefore being in third place and ninth place.

Other destinations of interest for those looking for possible investments opportunities in the emirate apart from Dubai Marina include Jumeirah Lake Towers, International City, Dubai Sports City and Dubai Waterfront.

Those who need to transfer money to the UAE should review their options and find the best way of transferring money abroad.

Foreign currency exchange rates quoted by banks are almost always worse than the exchange rates available through specialist currency dealers.
