Dubai house prices, already off some 60% from their peaks, are set to fall a further 10 percent in 2010, a Reuters poll showed, as the emirate's debt crisis will likely delay a property sector recovery to 2012.

Residential property prices in the Gulf emirate, which boasts the world's tallest tower, have only a 13% chance of picking up before 2011, according to the median forecast of 12 analysts at banks, investment firms and research institutions.
