Renting an Apartment in Dubai
Apartments are the preferred choice of housing for the majority of the working individuals in Dubai. Not only are the apartments in Dubai space-efficient, but also located in bustling commercial and financial hubs which make it convenient for residents, as they can live and work in the same locality and save on time and money.
Apartment living is the cornerstone of fast-paced, city life in Dubai. Popular apartment communities are located within the main city and are urban settlements equipped with amenities like convenience stores, pharmacies, gyms and parks to facilitate a balanced lifestyle. Architecture and design is modern and practical, aimed towards making life hassle-free.
Dubai Marina, Downtown Dubai, JLT, JBR and Business Bay are some of the most sought after apartment communities, located on the Sheikh Zayed Road strip and further towards the suburbs. These communities are characterised by high-rise buildings and skyscrapers dominating the view.
Areas like Karama, Deira, Al Nahda and Qusais are situated towards the opposite end. These areas are known for housing a large part of the South Asian expatriate population and for a plethora of comparatively affordable options. Mostly low-rise and more classical in terms of design, these communities are bright and densely populated.
Renting is the most common housing practice in Dubai, mainly for affordability and easier procedures. The year of 2021 has seen a sharp increase in the number of leasing transactions for apartments at Betterhomes, by 117%, proving again that renting an apartment in Dubai is the way to go. A variety of apartment types including studios, duplexes and flats with single or multiple bedrooms, as well as furnished, semi-furnished and unfurnished apartments are available to choose from.
