From presidential penthouses to palatial villas, here are some of Dubai’s priciest residences

The latest industry forecast points to challenging year for Dubai’s real estate market. This means sales prices will again be subjected to downward pressure as market dynamics play out. For those looking for prime property, this could be an opportunity to snap up coveted homes at more competitive prices, or perhaps even a steep discount. Most analysts, however, see pressure finally easing later in the year, so those in the hunt for their dream homes will be keenly watching the market in the next few months.
