    Buying Property to Invest in Dubai

    So as to increase international investment and put the country on the map as a global hotspot, Dubai’s crown prince issued the innovative Freehold Decree in 2002, resulting in formal legislation allowing foreigners to buy, sell, lease and/or rent property at their own discretion. Buying property in Dubai has become easy and potentially profitable for foreigners. The real estate market is now out of the recession and many new projects have been announced by property developers and the government. As such, the property market is taking off in Dubai and the time is right to look at profitable purchases and new ventures.

    The Purpose Behind Your Purchase

    To achieve maximum profit, identify your exact reason for purchasing a property – either for investment purposes or to live in. The purpose behind your purchase can greatly affect what type of property you should consider. If the aim is to earn constant returns in the form of property rental yields, carry out some research to discover what type of property will provide the highest rental income. For example, one-bedroom apartments will have higher yields than large villas; although owning a villa in Dubai is tempting, it is a better business decision to purchase a smaller apartment.

    Always take advantage of the services of a licensed Dubai real estate company, because they have the expertise to assist in making the most accurate property decisions, based on current knowledge and market activity. That way, you will be able to enjoy everything that glittering Dubai has to offer.
