Dubai is a sought after place when foreigners and expats move overseas. With a population that consists of 85% foreigners, property is fairly cheap on average, why rents are expensive in comparison.
If you stay in Dubai long term, I’d advise you to look around for potential property investments.
However, even if Dubai is fairly small, it’s important that you do research well in advance, to know which areas that suit you the most. Might it be a villa located in a calmer area, or a high-rise apartment with a nice water view.
In this article, I list some of the most interesting areas you should have a look at.
1. Downtown Dubai
If you’re standing right at the bottom of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, you’re in Downtown Dubai. The area is among the most expensive areas in Dubai, known for its high-rise buildings and upscale community.
