Ras Al Khaimah is perfect for investments in real estate 

A reliable investment environment in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is based on several factors: a stable economy, favorable tax conditions, and well-developed infrastructure. Natural beauty and tourism potential are also important factors for investors planning to purchase profitable real estate in the emirate. The mountainous region, picturesque beaches, and mysterious deserts attract tourists from around the world to this area. Thanks to active government support, the tourism sector in Ras Al Khaimah is thriving, allowing investors to earn stable rental income from resort properties.

In 2023, the emirate received permission to build the first casino in the UAE. The request came from the world-famous Wynn chain, whose gaming establishments operate in Macau and Las Vegas. A contractor who will implement the anchor project for the UAE has already been identified. The emirate’s government has also launched a process to sort out the legal issues: they are forming a federal regulatory body that will oversee this industry.

According to plans, the casino will become operational only in 2027. However, several foreign developers are already contesting the right to build their facilities next to the flagship project today. Previously, the key developers included RAK Properties and AL Hamra. These companies were mainly involved in developing the Mina Al Arab and Al Hamra Village islands. Today, the region is witnessing high competition among the developing companies willing to build local real estate.

Ras Al Khaimah is considered the first preferred destination for expats in the Gulf and the 4th best expat destination in the world. A survey has been conducted among 12,000 respondents from 172 countries. The total year-on-year number of business deals in Ras Al Khaimah increased by 40.9%. According to the data from January to November 2023, the real estate transactions total value in the emirate increased by 60.4%.

In the future, Ras Al Khaimah will become a world-class casino resort. Investors ready to invest in real estate properties in this emirate today can receive sky-high profits in the next 6-7 years. Real estate prices in Ras Al Khaimah are rapidly growing. Those investors who entered the project a year ago have already benefited from the increase today, and at the moment, the sky’s the limit for this price climb.
