Our customer testimonials


"Working with Ashley was a great experience. He was always on hand to guide through the process of renting out our villa, and his efforts and prompt handling of the matter led to a quick deal. Couldnt have asked for better support and care from my broker. Look forward to working with Ashley again, and I would definitely recommend him to my circle of friends."

Zee Sal

"We were very impressed with the service we received from Andero at Betterhomes. He worked incredibly hard, having double the amount of viewings compared to all other agents we listed with. He always answers calls and kept us updated regularly. He truly goes the extra mile. He is extremely professional and his eagerness and drive gets the job done. We highly recommend listing a property with him or if you are looking for something to buy he will find it for you. The administration staff are also extremely efficient making all changes to documents in a timely fashion. Betterhomes is a phenomenal agency to deal with."

Lizelle Scurr

"I had more than 10 agents who were working to rent out my property and every day they used to send me many requests for viewing and non of them got me a serious offer except when I worked with Chiheb Bouhanaf from Betterhomes who got me 2 offers out of 2 inquiries and promised that we will seal the deal and did it. Great salesman and honestly a great personality."

Your Questions Answered

These basics will get you going in the right direction:

1. Calculate the property value – Know how much your home will rent for.
2. Secure a tenancy contract - Protect both your rights as a landlord and that of the tenant.
3. Get your property insured - Cover yourself from all the potential risks from leasing.
4. Find a good tenant - Avoid risky tenants by adequately screening them.
5. Hire a professional - Consider involving a rental management company.

Some mortgage lenders will allow you to rent out your home at the same rate and terms as before. Some, on the other hand, might charge a fee, ask you to wait a certain period of time, or force you to refinance.

Many real estate experts agree that a good ROI is usually around 10% and a great one is 12% or more.

Under Dubai law, a landlord can raise the rent by 5% if the annual rent value is 11-20% less than the average rent for equivalent units in the same city. A 10% increase is allowed if it is 21-30% less than the average rent of comparable properties.

To get the required services connected to the property, the tenant will need a valid residence visa. The landlord would not be able to register the lease and protect their legal rights without it.
