Dubai is divided into many communities- some overlooking the Marina, some with easy access to parks or golf courses and some overlooking iconic landmarks such as Burj Khalifa. While all communities offer something special not all are linked with efficient public transport that can reduce your cost of transport and reduce your travel time. Some communities that are well connected with the Dubai Metro are highlighted below.
In the last few years, we have witnessed rents in Dubai go up steadily and much faster than in most other parts of the world. Rising rents have inflated the cost of living in Dubai, thus forcing many residents to look for cheaper accommodation in more affordable parts of the city. MoneyCamel team has compiled a list of the best budget areas where you can find the most affordable apartments for rent, along with enjoying the best that community-living has to offer:
Jumeirah Islands is a high-end residential community developed by Nakheel. The community is situated to the east of Sheikh Zayed road and is only a few minutes’ drive away from other big communities like Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers.
Jumeirah Islands consists 736 four and five bedroom villas spread over 46 clusters of 16 villas each. The entire community is built over 300 hectares on 50 man-made islands which are surrounded by picturesque lakes, so all homes have stunning views of the lakes and the aesthetically landscaped open areas.
Remraam is a relatively new apartment community developed by Dubai Properties in Dubailand. It is located in Dubailand close to other popular communities like Arabian Ranches, Motor City and Dubai Studio City. Residents have easy access to Dubai’s arterial roads – Sheikh Zayed road and Emirates road. It is also close to the Jebel Ali Free zone and Al Maktoum International Airport.
Abu Dhabi is infamous for being a very expensive place to live in, and the biggest reason being the soaring house rents in this city. But there still are some great options available out there for expats looking for an affordable house for rent. MoneyCamel team has compiled a list of affordable rental areas in Abu Dhabi, to help make your search easier:
What if you’re stuck with a property that isn’t giving you any return on your investment? Are you in a situation where you can neither find a buyer who’s willing to pay your asking price nor have you been able to rent it for quite some time? With sales prices dwindling over the last few months, you’re best option would be to rent out the house at a price slightly lower than market price. But that also isn’t easy for the thousands of homeowners who own houses in less popular areas and far-flung communities of Dubai.
Hydra Village is a self-sustained townhouse community offering affordable two and three bedroom townhouses in a desirable location. Hydra Village is located close to the main highway which connects Abu Dhabi and Dubai, thus making it easier for commuters to travel across the two emirates. The community is only a short drive away from Al Raha, Yas Island and the Abu Dhabi International airport.
Al Ghadeer has been developed by the Abu Dhabi based Aldar Properties. It was launches in October 2007 as a mixed-use development spreading over 3 million square meters to offer Abu Dhabi residents the best in affordable luxury living.
