Commenting on the transactions conducted at Cityscape Global 2017, Lynnette Abad, partner and head of Property Monitor, said: "It’s important to note that with both the registered DLD transactions during the show as well as the week after the event, off-plan sales for apartments outnumbered those for townhouses and villas.

"This highlights the shift in investors’ and end-users’ preferences, which is likely backed by the location of the property, security of investments, and income yields."
