Rich Indians are purchasing homes in Dubai, London, and New York at lower costs

The covid-19 epidemic may have also delayed international travel plans, but it hasn’t stopped Indian HNIs from looking for other countries to establish permanent residence there, either as long-term residents or citizens. Rich Indians once again topped the list of those looking into “citizenship-through-investment” or “residence-through-investment” programs in 2020. According to a facilitating agency, the variety of inquiries increased from the 2019 degrees. This is now likely to speed up as many HNIs recall relocating their bases to areas with better healthcare facilities, especially in light of the responses of many affluent towns during the pandemic.

In its response to the epidemic, particularly the most recent 2nd wave, India has been playing catch-up. Lockdown rules won’t be eliminated for some time, and the threat of a third wave is real because of vaccination rates that are lower than necessary. The three best cities for Indian HNIs— Dubai, New York, and London—are currently close to returning to business as normal.

Due to Dubai’s lifting of its hotel limited-ability restrictions on May 17, such homes are now bookable to capacity. For those who have received their full dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, public gatherings, including live performances and sporting events, can also be held with up to 70 capacity. These are but a few of the signs and symptoms of Dubai returning to normal. The abatement of the coronavirus epidemic in the area and rising vaccination rates led to the lifting of numerous ability-related limitations in New York. Major venues like Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall are expected to open in July. The full capacity of Broadway theatres is expected to resume in September.

Britain has relaxed laws governing financial interests and interpersonal relationships. Lockdown restrictions have been relaxed in England, Wales, and most of Scotland, allowing bars, restaurants, and museums to resume serving customers inside, theatres to reopen, and exercise classes and indoor sports to resume.

India’s circumstances are still quite a little outside of the norm. The second wave has inspired Indian HNIs to consider a second household in distant areas with better clinical facilities and preventative measures. However, there are other reasons why many HNIs from India consider Dubai, New York, and London to be their primary or secondary bases.

Easy credit, the opportunity to obtain resident status immediately, simplicity of conducting business, and a tax-friendly environment make Dubai a popular choice. Despite the epidemic, Dubai’s economy is forecast to grow by 4% this year after contracting by an anticipated 6.2% last year. In April alone, more than 4,832 real estate sale transactions totaling AED 10,98 billion (roughly $three billion) were recorded in Dubai, setting a record for the previous four years.

The stamp duty holiday for consumers in London has been extended until June 30. Wise investors have already committed to real estate and purchased homes in London. Over the last fiscal year, house prices inside the UK increased by over 10%; this is the highest level since 2007. Despite the year-over-year delivery shortfall, income transactions are predicted to increase by 45%, and the price of homes sold in 2021 is predicted to reach £461 billion (roughly $654 billion), with the average London home now costing around £500,000.

Similar developments are being observed in New York, which is home to 7,743 ultra-high net-worth individuals. Many people are quickly moving back now that the city is starting to grow. As builders offer numerous deal sweeteners, such as covering last costs, properties are selling quickly. With a 58% increase in transactions year over year in May, New York City led America in terms of income growth. Forty homes in Manhattan alone were sold for more than $4 million during the final week of May.
