Emaar projects such as Address and Vida Downtown offer branded, fully serviced and fully furnished residences which give investors a unique proposition to achieve higher returns.”

Business Bay

Lara Elcheik, SmartCrowd, declares Business Bay, Dubai’s trendy skyscraper district, as the top choice to invest in Dubai. 

Elcheik says: “Business Bay has been the most transacted area in 2022 (Source: Reidin). By offering high-end amenities and a fast-paced premium lifestyle in a central location, Business Bay has also become a sought-after short-term rental destination as well as a major business destination. Both property prices and rental rates have risen 15% and 34%, respectively, over the past year, making it a top location to buy property in Dubai.” 

Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah is the entertainment hub and it offers all – beaches, resorts, restaurants, bespoke villas, and countless entertainment venues. It won’t be wrong to say that the area can be synonymous to luxury. 

Alina Adamco, Head of Sales, Metropolitan Homes: “The Palm is an all-time favourite destination and now, especially for investors looking for capital appreciation. The Six Senses and Royal Atlantis have a strong resale demand as well as the residences at One Palm and Palm Tower. Other Beachfront Island projects such as Seahaven by Sobha and Damac Bay are quite popular as the area takes shape and offers investors several investment opportunities.”

The Greens and The Views

With sales and rental prices increasing 9% and 18%, respectively (SmartCrowd), The Green and the Views is part of Emaar Living Communities project, and is located in close proximity to the Dubai Knowledge Park, Internet City, and the Media City. 

Lara Elcheik, SmartCrowd, calls The Greens and The Views the ultimate ” family-friendly community that is a great option for a long-term rental investment”.  The peaceful, urban area offers leafy footpaths, beautiful waterways, shopping centres, international schools, world-class golf courses, and five-star hotels. Both areas have access to the same facilities and amenities, with The Greens being a more affordable area compared to its neighbouring high-end development, The Views.

Al Furjan

With its close proximity to Dubai Expo three metro stations, this suburban area is rapidly becoming the real estate top pick of the region and is said to be the potential hotspot. Land purchases followed up by construction by the real estate investors and builders are trending as Dubai broadens its borders. The key factor contributing to this trend is the fact that upgraded properties in Al Furjan have higher resale values and capital appreciation.
