Danube Properties sold out its third project – Opalz – on the first day of its launch this year, reflecting growing public trust and investor confidence in the developer and Dubai’s real estate sector.
The Dubai-based developer has delivered 13 of the 17 projects it has launched so far. Opalz is the developer’s 18th project. It has recently awarded construction contracts for Skyz and Pearlz while Gemz is in the tendering process.
“The end-users, investors and brokers have lined up to lay their hands on Opalz since the opening of sales earlier today. As a result, the project has been completely sold out. This sell-out at launch in the current market conditions reflect the customers’ trust in us and their growing confidence in our ability to deliver luxurious properties at affordable price on time, on quality and at a one per cent per month payment plan – which is very rare in this part of the world,” said Sajan.
Indian comedian and actor Kiku Sharda also attended the launch and sold-out announcement of the Dh525 million Opalz project. Sharda is one of many Bollywood celebrities who have invested in Danube Properties’ homes – due to their strong appeal, higher return on investment and faster appreciation of the assets after delivery.
