Housing in Dubai
In this essay, I’ll be telling you about Homes in Dubai & the different types of residences in UAE that are available to you if ever decide to visit or moving to Dubai-UAE. Dubai has a truly eclectic housing place that has just about any type of house you are looking for.
Since a good deal of the population in Dubai is made up of xpats, you can expect to find many different places as well
as apartments in Dubai as these types of residences are generally more comfortable to us. Typically, Dubai houses usually come in the form of villas which can comfortably house for a family of 4 to 6 person. These villas have a tendency to be very expensive, depending on the area of the city in which you are located.
On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $3000 to $4000 each month for a superb villa in a good place of the city that is central to all of the amenities that make living here so spectacular. Then you will have to consider the cost of water, electricity, & other similar monthly bills in addition to the monthly rental price.
On average, you should budget at least an additional $500 to $600 for these expenses, especially if you’re like me and you like to keep your home cool all the time by running the air conditioner constantly!
It is possible that you can find best deals on “housing in Dubai” but in all likelihood these prices are going to be on the low end of the scale. It is extremely expensive to live in Dubai but there is no other place like it on Earth & as many people agree, & I’m sure you’ll agree too after going there & experiencing it firsthand, the prices are well worth it just for the atmosphere alone, not to mention all of the great & exciting things that there are to do there.
Apartments & Condos in Dubai
If you’re looking to find a cheaper alternative to a villa, you should definitely consider apartments in Dubai as well as condos in Dubai.
The rental rates on these types of residences are generally significantly cheaper than that of a villa but at the same time, it depends on the location & any amenities that are nearby & they too can be just as costly for you as a villa.
You should expect to have to pay anywhere from $1200 a month for a small, unfurnished apartment or condo up to $2500 a month (or more) for a larger, say 2 bedroom type of condo or apartment. As with living in a villa, you should also remember to budget for water ,electricity (DEWA) etc…
You should also be aware that when renting or leasing Dubai houses, most if not all landlords or Property Dealers require the full year’s rental payment in advance. You’ll notice, as well, when looking for a place to live, most advertisements quote the price for the entire year rental. Normally now they ask for 4 cheques where 1st one is Cash while the remaining are after 3 months each.
