Why Sharjah … Why Tilal City

 

Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic has left the real estate landscape in an uncertain state of precedence, with challenges comes new opportunities. Sharjah has established itself as a tourism and business hub over the last few years and is quickly becoming a destination for businesses and individuals looking to invest in real estate. Experts in the industry are preparing for a post-COVID real estate boom, due to contributing factors such as economic stability, low risk factors for investors, and investment security. Investors will be seeking to capitalise on the low interest rates and lower deposits. The next few years in UAE real estate is shaping up to be a buyer’s market, and property companies who capitalise on this will reap the rewards.

Sharjah, the culture capital of the UAE, is widely recognised for its history and heritage, and offers a rich diversity of nature and history, fused with a modern landscape. Sharjah’s bid to become a leading nature-inspired destination for international tourists and UAE residents is supported by a number of new projects emerging in the emirate, including an ecotourism resort, and a family-friendly safari park retreat.

As well as its growing tourism, the real estate market in Sharjah is healthy, competitive, and- crucially- stable. Due to the flourishing development projects and steady rise in real estate units, developers have seen the need to become more innovative in their offerings. The system of legislation is also a contributing factor to Sharjah’s investment appeal, creating a safe environment for real estate investors. Sharjah will continue to grow and expand its economy, promoting itself to the rest of the world as an ideal destination for tourism, investment, and business. International interest is already strong and will likely grow and strengthen over the next few years, as businesses and stakeholders realise it is a smart idea to invest in Sharjah.
