Nakheel, Dubai-based master developer, expects a sell-out of 360 four- and five-bed Jumeirah Park Legacy villas, public launch of which was held on Monday.
“We expect to sell all our villas today itself… there is a huge demand for it,” Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah told ‘Emirates24|7’.
A number of investors have been queuing outside the Nakheel sales office since Sunday with those standing with token expecting to get hold of at least one villa.
MA, who just gave his initials and was invited as a VIP client, told this website that he had purchased two five-bed villas for price between Dh4.9 million and Dh5m.
“The location of the project is really good… moreover, we are happy with the payment plan, which is 15 per cent down payment and the rest in easy installments over the next three years.”
Saleem, an investor, who has been standing in queue since early morning, says: “We have been told that we will be allowed only after the VIP launch is over. Seeing the number of VIPs coming in, I don’t think I will get any unit.
Although he declines he will not flip the unit, he is ready to transfer it if he can get a 10 per cent premium.
Nakheel executives said they would shortly be announcing contractor details and completion date of the project.
