    Return on Investment

    To understand the profitability of the purchase of Bab Al Bahr apartments, let’s try to calculate the ROI percentage. For example, 1-bedroom apartment with a surface area of 430 sq. ft costs AED 467 321. The rental price of the same apartment is AED 38 000 annually.

    Return on investment is essentially the ratio of income and expenses. Rent represents income. As for expenses, they include the registration fee (AED 4000 fixed) and the Dubai Land Department fee (2% of the price, which is AED 9346 in our case) as well as housing maintenance costs (if it’s AED 5.5 per square foot, then the total cost will sum up to about AED 2400 annually).

    Considering the data that we have, ROI = (38,000 / 467,321) * 100% = 8.1%.

    Even approximate calculations show that investing in Bab Al Bahr real estate is a reliable way of increasing one’s savings.
