Palm Jumeirah - Posting the Highest Number of Home Sales
Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah is not only registering a new record high villa price but also posting the highest number of home sales in almost five years: 
- Ultra-prime home sales across Dubai are nowhere better reflected than on the Palm Jumeirah, where average transacted prices, at over Dh2,100 are at their highest level in over five years. 
- Villas remain in high demand as both resident expats and international investors seek to secure larger and more luxurious homes in the most prestigious parts of the city. 

The Covid -19 Pandemic
- Pandemic taught us all the importance of personal space and with a shift to hybrid working models emerging as the norm, families are seeking accommodation that delivers on space, luxury and exclusivity.

The Palm Jumeirah, Coming into Its Own
- The opening of Nakheel Mall has helped to cement the amenities available to the island’s residents, helping to create not only an exclusive enclave, but one that epitomises the very definition of a 15-minute city; an emerging and highly desirable legacy trend of the pandemic globally.
