Happy Monday Dubai!
Welcome back to Katch up with Kash.
There’s certainly no Monday blues here at Allsopp and Allsopp! Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of February? This year feels like it's flying by!
Did you know, according to DLD data, this is the strongest February the real estate market has seen since 2024, with a reported year-on-year rise of 35.12% in property sales value!
If you thought that was huge, get this - although this has been the shortest month of the year Dubai has seen AED 22 billion and counting, worth of property sales value transactions!
Could 2023 be an even better year than 2022? We can’t wait to find out!
Is Dubai’s real estate market seeing a prop-tech boom?
The city’s leading industry has its eyes set on the AED 317.7 billion prop-tech market and its innovative investment opportunities.
This boom creates a huge opportunity for prop-tech companies to provide innovative solutions to meet the needs of investors, sellers, and end-users, loving it!
To infinity and beyond…
Although Sultan Al Neyadi’s space mission on the Falcon 9 rocket was postponed today due to technical issues - we’ll still be bracing ourselves for lift-off on Thursday March 2.
The SpaceX flight is scheduled for lift-off at 9.34am UAE time. What did our president have to say to the first Emirati astronaut heading into space?
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nayhan shared a phone call with the Arab astronaut, Sultan Al Neyadi where he prayed for the astronauts success, safety and strong return. He also mentioned to the 42 year old to consistently workout, to ensure he stays strong in space!
This mission will make the UAE the 11th country to send its astronauts to the ISS (International Space Station). The six-crew flight with lead Emirati astronaut, Sultan Al Neyadi will be taking off from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida on Thursday, 2nd March. This long-haul mission will stretch for a period of six-months and can be streamed live here.
