Openshore has been selling properties in Dubai for almost 8 years. Over the initial period we acted as estate agents, helping buyers purchase off-plan properties direct from developers. During this period we saw the Dubai property boom in off-plan property and then the subsequent crash in 2008. Many lessons have been learnt following the off-plan property issues in 2008 after which we stopped selling off-plan properties all-together. We could no longer rely on third party developers, many of whom let us down and also let our clients down by failure to build and by excessive delays.
The market has been fairly stable over past few years and is now beginning to rise again. Over this period we have focused on selling ready properties where we have total control and where we also provide the after sales management. Thus we are 100% responsible and liable for both the properties and the service levels. Our most popular products have been ready low cost Studio and 1-bed apartments that have been purchased by buyers as purely investment properties.
For other types of ‘own use’ properties and large Villas, we have still helped enquirers and where necessary advised them to deal with other reputable Dubai Estate Agents who specialize in their desired type of properties or locations.
It would be good to get views from visitors and clients on how we can improve our current product offerings and also our service.
Additionally, if you have already purchased from us, particularly over the past few years, and would like to comment on the pre-sales and after-sales service we have provided, please go ahead.
