RAK Properties positive of real estate upswing
Ras Al Khaimah, October 7, 2012
Ras Al Khaimah’s property sector has registered significant growth defying the regional downturn, and RAK Properties is upbeat on the real estate industry, according to Mohamed Sultan Al Qadi, RAK’s managing director & CEO.
Al Qadi said that the emirate’s real estate development plan is currently based on a well studied and conservative supply strategy. He urged real estate developers in the Gulf to remain conservative and flexible in their approach to growth and gear up for a new phase of development in which the supply should reflect the actual demand.
“Ras Al Khaimah’s efforts in upgrading its infrastructure as far as roads, electricity, water and communications are concerned have played a key role in boosting the real estate industry in the Emirate,” Al Qadi said.
He said that the rapidly increasing investor confidence in the RAK real estate sector would continue to grow, since property developers have matured after learning hard lessons from the impact of regional downturn.
