Dubai, UAE, 12th Aug, 12
Future Perfect

It’s the million-dollar question. Has the Dubai property market turned a corner? Hesham Al Qassim pauses and his face breaks into a wide smile. “What do you think?” he asks. I mutter something unintelligible about increased demand for premium areas of the city.Al Qassim’s smile widens. “The market is starting to roll over again,” he corrects me. “I think it’s the right time for it. The market has to move at some point; it’s four years from the time that everything started to slow down, and I think that prices have gone below the right level. It’s the right level to buy again.”It’s fair to say that nearly every self-proclaimed expert has had his opinion on the state of play in Dubai’s real estate market since the bubble burst in 2008. But then again, Al Qassim is in a far better position than most to give a transparent assessment. He is the CEO of Wasl Asset Management, which looks after the property portfolio owned by the government’s Dubai Real Estate Corporation (DREC).
