The figure also mentioned that the villa/townhouse index has increased by 14 percent in the last six months. The Covid-19 pandemic has definitely accelerated the demand for larger properties, which, in turn, has led to an increase in sales and broke records for the most sold.

Talking about ready-to-move-in apartments, the most preferred areas are Dubai Marina, Business Bay, Jumeirah Village Circle, Downtown Dubai and Jumeirah Lake Towers.
