Sharjah-based real estate developer Arada has reported an 86% increase in units sold during the first eight months of 2019, which saw its sales value rise by 30% in comparison to January to August 2018.

Despite “tough conditions” in the UAE property market, Arada said it sold 1,801 units from January to August 2019, adding that the Sharjah market had remained “resilient”.

In total, Arada has now sold 4,200 units across its Sharjah-based communities.

The developer will be showcasing both Aljada, Sharjah’s largest mixed-use megaproject, and Nasma Residences, which became Sharjah’s fastest-selling community when its first phase sold out in less than a month, during Cityscape Global, which takes place on 25-27 September 2019 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Construction on Aljada is well under way, with the first homes scheduled to be handed over in the first quarter of 2020.

Commenting on the sales performance, Arada chairman, HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, said: “These excellent results are testament to the strength of Sharjah’s property sector, where demand has endured and prices have remained stable in comparison to other markets in the region.

“We have achieved those results by listening to our buyers, tailoring our products to the needs of our consumers and providing real estate investment opportunities that we don’t believe can be found anywhere else in the Gulf.”
