A studio can be bought for less than USD 200,000. But this is a budget option. If you buy an apartment in an elite area, you need to pay extra.

  • Apartments

For a one-bedroom apartment with an area up to 70 square meters, you would have to pay around USD 300,000. A two-bedroom piece of 110-130 square meters would cost you around USD 500,000. And if it’s a bigger apartment of three or more bedrooms than the price can be as high as USD 800,000.

  • The cost of land

Land plots in Dubai, as in all the UAE, are more expensive than ordinary real estate.

Investing in land is more profitable than in housing. In a year, the price can rise by AED 100,000 or more. Usually for such a purchase you do not need to pay immediately, installments are possible.

On average, a land plot costs USD 1,362,667 (for an area from 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 square meters)


The price of residential real estate has fallen slightly in recent years, so now is the best time to buy it. The situation will quickly stabilize, so the income will cover all costs.

Good income can be obtained from the rental of housing. Every year you can have an increase in funds of 5-7% of the value of the property.

From the rental of villas, the profit is about 3-6%, from the rental of apartments – 6-10% per year. Small apartments and studios have a higher percentage of income than multi-room apartments.

According to recent statistics, the highest income (9%) is generated by housing in:

  • Dubai’s Sports City,
  • Silicon Oasis,
  • Discovery Gardens areas.

A percentage of 7.5-8 is observed in the areas of:

  • The Greens,
  • Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

In prestigious parts of the city Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina, the income is 6% per year.

Villas provide less income than apartments. But there are exceptions to this rule. In the Arabian Ranches and The Springs districts of Dubai, houses generate income of more than 6%. Large real estate pays off faster than some apartments. But the bigger and more expensive the villa, the fewer people can afford to rent it. As a result, incomes are scarce.
