Buying from the developer or from the secondary market? In the home search, the answer to these questions changes the buyer direction completely, and the approach towards the search implies a set of questions that are valid and important to be answered.

Generally, it was perceived that investors tend to buy from the developers or primary market as offplan and once the property gets ready, they tend to sell it off at a higher appreciated price. However, in the modern scenario, with the latest portal technology and knowledge availability things have changed significantly, and today’s end user is more aware about the market than a common investor.

Although Dubai Real Estate spoils you for choices with ready and offplan options available directly from the developer in abundance, but the key factor that come into play when opting for primary or secondary market is Payment Plan.

A payment plan eases up the cashflow of a home buyer, which is generally spread over 2 to 4 years of payments. And projects offering post-handover payment plans adds up further value to the proposition because the remaining payments can be either recovered through renting out the apartment when investing, or can be saved by transforming into investment.

The brand-new properties from the developer are a great proposition for the end-users because not only they come with one year warranty, but they users can also benefit from no agency commissions, and at times DLD waiver as well.
