In contrast, the total stock for Makkah and DMA stood at 404,000 and 366,000, respectively. 

According to our research experts, some of the major market trends shaping the Saudi Arabia real estate market are: 

  • Saudi Arabia has identified housing as one of its key projects under Vision 2030. 
  • The housing ministry aims to build 300,000 housing units over the next five years, in partnership with the private sector. 
  • As conditions post-COVID-19 stabilized, residential mortgages registered an annual increase of 48%, with a total value of SAR 71.4 billion (USD 19.03 billion) during the first five months of 2021 due to the high demand for residential villas, which represented 80% of total mortgages. 
  • The Sakani program by the Ministry of Housing (MOH) provided 77,000 housing units to citizens during the first five months of 2021, which was 55% of the target of 140 thousand units. 
  • Regarding performance, asking sale prices for apartments and villas jumped by almost 10% in West Riyadh.

International Corporations are establishing regional headquarters in Riyadh: 

In October 2021, 44 multinational corporations were granted permits to relocate their regional headquarters to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia's capital. Among these 44 companies are multinational corporations from the technology, food and beverage, consulting, and construction industries, such as Unilever, Baker Hughes, and Siemens. 

In 2021, 24 companies, including PepsiCo, Schlumberger, Deloitte, PwC, and Bechtel, signed agreements to establish main regional offices rather than oversee operations remotely from the UAE Dubai emirate. 

About 600 new international companies were registered in Saudi Arabia in the second quarter of 2021. Their lease of first-class offices in Riyadh corresponded with the Kingdom's focus on attracting regional headquarters for international brands. 

In contrast to the global trend of companies reducing their office space by 20-30%, Riyadh is experiencing high demand for offices, particularly first-class offices, because of the program to attract multinational corporations.
