Property investors buying a new villa in the Bawabat Al Sharq development in Bani Yas City during Ramadan will receive gold bars with their new home.
The offer, which runs until the end of the holy month, is available to customers who purchase an Andalusian villa in the third phase of the Dh3 billion development, receiving between two and five one ounce bars depending on the size of the villa, number of bedrooms and location.
Wall Tawil, CEO of Baniyas Investment and Development Company, says: "Each one of these bars is individually registered, sealed in a protective holder along with its official "Assay Certificate" that guarantees the fineness of 999.9 pure gold content at one troy ounce."
Bawabat Al Sharq launched Phase III of their development- featuring three, four and five bedroom homes, which range in size from 271 to 542 square metres - during Cityscape Abu Dhabi last year. Seventy-four villas have been released for sale so far.
The villas are part of Bawabat Al Sharq's luxurious mixed-use development which feature a separate men and women's majlis, pools and private parking spaces as well as retail, entertainment and sporting facilities including a Fifa stand football stadium that seats more than 20,000.
Wall El Ashry, commercial vice president at BID, says: "We at BID always search for new ways of giving added value to our clients when they purchase any of our various property offerings. This Ramadan we celebrate by giving gold to our clients once they purchase a property at BAS. We feel that gold and the property itself complement each other as strong stores of value that appreciate with time."
