6 Things To Consider When Buying Property In The UAE

1 Choosing the right agent

People usually tend to consider things like location or provided parking space as their top priority when looking for a property to buy. However, getting the right real estate agent is the most crucial part when buying property, especially if you are looking to buy in a city that you are new to.

An experienced and attentive real estate agent would ask you the right questions to understand exactly what your needs are and what lifestyle you desire in order to provide you with the best options for you. It makes the sometimes-hectic property search much easier for you.

2 Your budget

Before looking at your options, make sure that you communicate clearly how much you can and are willing to pay for your home. Do not get pressured into stretching your budget “just a little bit more”. You are the only one who knows what you can afford to spend on your potential new home. Letting your agent know beforehand exactly how much you are willing to put on your property, helps them cut down their search to more specific properties most suitable for you.


No one wants to live somewhere where the beautiful skyline of the city is blocked by the surrounding buildings that are compacted with one another or views of junk across the street. Relying on pictures you find online or pictures provided to you is not enough. Site visits are an important process when considering homes. You do not have to visit every single property you are presented with, just the ones that you really think would suit you best.

Yes, incredible views to add to the price of the property but the views you choose don’t all have to break your budget. The views you wake up to and see across your window every single day matter.

4 Neighbourhood

A good idea would be to visit the area or location in which you plan to purchase your property at. Are the neighbours friendly? Are facilities such as schools, banks, clinics, supermarkets, or parks available?

Identify what it is you need or what it is you are looking for in order to be able to make your judgement on your potential new neighbourhood.

5 Traffic

The best part of a long busy day is getting back to the comfort of your home. No one wants to wait in long queues or be stuck in traffic in order to reach home. Is the way to your potential home crowded? Is there a lot of traffic? That is one thing you need to consider in order to ensure that you get home on your own time and do not spend more time stuck on the road than at home.

6 Provided parking space

If you are living in a townhouse or villa, this would not be a problem for you. However, if you are looking to live in an apartment in a building at the heart of the city or somewhere close to your workplace, one of the hardest things to find is an area with a large number of parking spaces; especially if you and your family have multiple cars. Ensuring that your building provides you with a parking underground for at least 1 of your vehicles or is positioned next to a park or area that is open and supplies you with a sufficient number of parking spaces is important.
