Lookup.ae reports prices & transaction information for freehold apartments, villas & townhouses in Dubai every quarter. We track a basket of 35 major freehold communities / districts of Dubai which gives us the correct mixture of property types, quality and locations. 

In these major communities of Dubai, we monitor:

  • Typical transaction price range
  • Typical sizes of units
  • Reporting on prices by project / unit grade
  • Typical Rental price range
  • Change in capital / rental values
  • We also provide this data historically

Expectations: Prices are updated within the first 10 days of a quarter. We take these major community statistics and provide you with analytical tools to understand them better.

- The Lookup.ae database currently has information on over 1,000 freehold projects in the city. The projects that we highlight in the Investment Hotspots section  are those areas that have interesting or attractive investment feasibility. 

- We grade projects against each other using various criteria (Location, Uniqueness, Value for money, Capital Growth Expectation and Rental Yield Expectation). All the graded projects are presented in the Investment Hotspots section where you can use filters to organize investment opportunities by price per sq. ft., payment-plans, construction status and comparison scores. 

- Comparison Scores are revised periodically and are meant to be used to compare the recommended projects against each other.
