If you’re currently building an income portfolio, then you might want to look at the shares listed below.

Here’s why these ASX dividend shares could be worth considering right now:

Adairs Ltd (ASX: ADH)

The first dividend share to look at is Adairs. It is a leading homewares and furniture retailer with both a physical presence and growing online presence. The latter includes through both its core brand and its online only Mocka brand.

The team at UBS are positive on Adairs. While it acknowledges there is near term uncertainty, the broker believes the company’s outlook remains very positive thanks to its quality operations, its loyal customer base, and strong earnings potential in a post-pandemic world.

UBS currently has a buy rating and $5.40 price target on the company’s shares. As for dividends, the broker is forecasting fully franked dividends of 19.6 cents per share in FY 2022 and 29.9 cents per share in FY 2023. Based on the current Adairs share price of $3.42, this will mean yields of 5.7% and 8.7%, respectively.

DEXUS Property Group (ASX: DXS)

Another ASX dividend share to look at is Dexus. It is an Australian real estate company focused on office, industrial and retail properties. This includes the recent acquisition of $1.5 billion worth of industrial assets, including Jandakot Airport in Perth and a logistics centre leased to Australia Post.

Macquarie is positive on the company and has an outperform rating and $11.90 price target on its shares. The broker sees upside risk to consensus earnings expectations in the coming years from the sale of capital-intensive assets and a shift towards higher returning income streams.

Its analysts are also forecasting dividends per share of 53.7 cents in FY 2022 and 58.1 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current Dexus share price of $11.13, this will mean yields of 4.8% and 5.2%, respectively.
