Top districts in Dubai to purchase villas: Dubai Hills, Arabian Ranches, and Palm Jumeirah

According to the market of real estate in Dubai, the home price in the most sought-after communities is steadily rising. The city’s housing supply is an investment option due to rising rents. Additionally, while apartments for sale in Dubai used to be the top choice among buyers, villas are currently just as popular. Let’s discuss how much profit a villa in Dubai Hills may bring its owner and which regions are equally advantageous for buying individual house constructions.

Perks of real investments in Dubai

The actively developing emirate draws foreign investors for a number of reasons, such as:

  • A large selection of both ready-made and off-plan projects in Dubai.
  • Affordable cost of housing.
  • Strong profitability and liquidity.
  • Year-round demand for housing dwellings, providing a reliable source of revenue.
  • No personal income taxes.

The market in the emirate is expanding. This makes the investment in real estate lucrative in terms of capitalising on the value of the stock of dwellings. You can find detailed information about the current state of the city’s sales market on the official website of Emirates.Estate.

Villas for sale in Dubai at Dubai Hills Estate 

This is the first phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid City (MBR City) development, nicknamed a “city within a city” project. The area is a joint venture between Emaar and Meraas Holding. This is a multi-use development with a number of distinctive sub-areas situated around an 18-hole golf course.

It features a golf club, a skate park, swimming pools, a football field, and a equestrian club, as well as anything else you could possibly need for a comfortable and stress-free living. There are 11 million sq. m. of buildings in total. The vast majority of the territory is landscaped parks and gardens. The area is separated into three zones, and once they are all completed, there will be 4,600 villas, 22,000 apartments, a 143,000 sq. m. shopping mall, and more. 197,000 sq. m. of large office spaces, 45 km. of bicycle and jogging tracks, two hotels, a tennis academy, and much more.

In the district, the return on investment (ROI) ranges from 5% to 7%. In this neighbourhood of Dubai, prices for flats in Dubai start at AED 535,000 (USD 146,000), and prices for villas and townhouses start at AED 2,400,000 (USD 653,500). You may also invest here in land plots with areas from 739 sq. m. for AED 4,000,000 (USD 1,089,000) to build your own house. The annual rent for villas starts at AED 140,000 (USD 38,200).

Property for sale in Dubai on the Palm Jumeirah

This is the largest project, covering an area of 5.72 sq. km, and the enormous palm-shaped development with premium apartments and villas located on 16 branches and a trunk. Palm Jumeirah maintains its position as the third most sought-after area in Dubai for both purchasing and renting properties, despite the dynamics of various segments of the Dubai real estate market. Over the past 2 years, the number of transactions with high-class real estate with an average price above AED 10,000,000 (USD 2,723,000) has grown significantly, and even doubled on the Palm Jumeirah island.

Getting to the region is fairly simple and quick thanks to a network of highways, tunnels, and public transportation, such as the Palm Monorail, and rail connections include free parking spaces at the base of The Palm with stops at Atlantis, The Palm, and Nakheel Mall.

Investors can be confident that their investments in Palm Jumeirah properties will provide good returns by following rental trends. There is always the chance to rent out your accommodation and make money from it because people come here for short and long periods of time. For the island, the annual return on investment is 4.47%. On the island, villas continue to be the most profitable option.

Villas in the Arabian Ranches community 

This gated suburban community has villas and townhouses in Arabic, Spanish, and modern architectural styles. Properties for sale off plan in Dubai and ready-to-move-in alternatives are both available here.

The project is divided into three sub-communities with a well-developed infrastructure for comfortable living. There are a lot of parks, three lakes, walking and biking trails, tennis courts, basketball and soccer fields, a skate park, a golf club, a racing track, as well as other amenities including supermarkets, pharmacies, and medical facilities. The location is perfect for families looking to live in a calm environment away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

According to Bayut & Dubizzle information for the first half of 2021, Arabian Ranches holds a leading position among the top most popular regions for tenants in Dubai, despite the fact that the cost of renting villas here is among the highest in Dubai. Since the beginning of the year, rent prices have risen by 18% here. This was influenced by the high demand for more spacious residences. The return on investment in this case ranges from 5% to 7% annually.

It is important to note that investors and end-users are very interested in Arabian Ranches. The Joy and Spring projects, which each contain 640 apartments with three to four bedrooms, are the last two to be completed of the project’s four phase development process. They are scheduled to be fully ready for occupancy in 2022. The Ruba and Sun complexes are expected to be completed in 2023.
