Q&A With Waqas Abdul Hye
How long have you been in the industry?
I have been in real estate for 2 years, I was in marketing in the textile industry in Pakistan for 17 years
How would you describe the current property market?
I think it’s very good, if you’re looking to buy a property for yourself it’s a great time to buy. Because there is a lot of supply and less demand. Even for investors it’s a great time if I buy somewhere it is very quickly being rented out. I think the market is going to settle and get better, I don’t think the prices will drop much more.
Tell us about last month’s big achievement
I closed eight rental deals last month, each for around AED 55,000.
Any words of advice for someone looking to sell their property in Sharjah?
Make sure your price is realistic, and you understand the market conditions. Trust your agent and his knowledge.
What’s your favourite thing to do on your days off?
I like to travel and understand different cultures, especially their cooking skills and taste it all 🙂
If you had 2 million dirhams to invest in real estate, where would you put your money?
I would invest in an area like JVT or Silicon Oasis, I think after 2020 you’ll make a return of 15 – 20% on your investment.
If you didn’t work in real estate, what career would you pursue?
I would join Property Finder immediately! The customer service, professionalism and dedication to their clients is something I like to mirror in my work and I feel that I would fit into this culture well.
What is the question you are most often asked by property seekers?
Always the same question, I want the best apartment for the lowest price.
How big of a role does Property Finder play in your job? What specifically do you use Property Finder for?
I use two other portals but, when I get leads from Property Finder I know I will make the sale because the leads are genuine. Property Finder has created this trust within the real estate industry.
