Dubai Introduces a Platform for Neighborhood Search Based on Interests
With Data Guru - a new comprehensive tool designed to address all concerns related to housing search based on interests and preferences. You can choose from budget-friendly neighborhoods, sports-centric areas, luxury districts, family-friendly zones, or the greenest spots.
"Through Data Guru, we offer a range of easily accessible tools that provide the most comprehensive industry information on prices, communities, districts, as well as rental or purchase advice, etc. Home seekers can also easily track new off-plan real estate projects and get more detailed information about them to make a purchase decision in advance," said Christophe de Rassenfoss from Property Finder.
Thanks to the Price Map, buyers can assess their budget and instantly see the property rental and sale price landscape. This allows easy identification of districts that won't strain the buyer's budget. Some good affordable options in New Dubai include residential complexes: Greens, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Al Barari, Mirdif, and Damac Hills. The average rent for one-bedroom apartments here is approximately 67,000 dirhams per year (US$ 18,250), and the ownership cost is 893,000 dirhams (US$ 243,000). These districts offer access to well-planned infrastructure facilities and gated projects designed for the well-being of both residents and visitors. Al Furjan, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Investment Park, Dubai Land, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Jumeirah Village Circle, and Dubai Sports City are also worth considering. The average price in these areas for one-bedroom apartments is about 46,000 dirhams (US$ 12,524) per year for rent and 532,000 dirhams for sale (US$ 145,000). Some of Old Dubai's cultural districts, including Al Qusais, Deira, and Bur Dubai, can also offer many budget-friendly options.
Among the most prestigious districts in Dubai are Business Bay, DIFC, Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and Jumeirah Beach Residences. Given the plethora of premium properties on offer, the average rent for one-bedroom apartments in these areas is about 110,500 dirhams per year (US$ 30,000), and the ownership cost is around 1,626,500 dirhams (US$ 443,000).
Al Barsha, Arabian Ranches, Al Furjan, Motor City, and Dubai Silicon Oasis are the best places for family living in Dubai. Owning a home in any of these districts ensures easy access to top schools, community centers, playgrounds, and more.
