The average price of a Dubai home fell 24 percent in the second quarter of 2009, compared with the same period last year; however, the market is showing “signs of stabilization,” according to property consultant company Jones Lang LaSalle.

“The rate of decline is now falling and there has been a convergence between asking and achieved prices,” the company said in an emailed statement.

The total number transactions remained constant between the first and second quarters of 2009, although the volume was down 58 percent in Q2 compared with the same period last year.

“The stabilization of transaction volumes is an important indicator, which reflects improved confidence among investors,” said Craig Plumb, head of research at Jones Lang for the Middle East and North Africa. “The narrowing gap between asking prices and achieved prices is a further indication that the market is beginning to stabilize, albeit at significantly lower levels of pricing than those seen earlier in the year.”
