Ras Al Khaimah’s residential sector reported strong sales in Q2 2015, with consistent demand for its high profile projects and robust occupancy and rental rates for its quality competitively priced villas and townhouses.

The thriving Emirate is also gaining an enviable international reputation for its stable economic growth and the ongoing government investment into its infrastructure as well as rapid advancement in the trade, industry and tourism sectors.

“As well as local property transactions, re-sales and letting services, we can also now assist Ras Al Khaimah-based investors with international property purchases,” he added.
