Dubai offers a great number of properties to potential buyers, and for those who are interested in investment opportunities, Dubai may just have exactly what they’re looking for. Besides apartments, which are always in demand, villa communities are popular both among potential buyers who plan to live in Dubai and investors who plan to rent the unit out. The rental yield of this type of community is quite high and gives an ROI from 4.5% to 6% annually.
Villas in Dubai are always in high demand among big families, And after endless COVID-19 lockdowns, this type of property has gained even more popularity. The increase in demand can be explained by the fact that villas normally have more space and additional areas which can be reorganized into a study or other needs. Moreover, the majority of villas in Dubai are provided with a garden, terrace and even a swimming pool, which motivates people to spend more time outside.
Regardless of whether you are considering buying a completed property or off-plan, both options have their pros and cons. For example, buying a ready-made villa will cost much more than an off-plan property, but with a ready-made villa you can either move in immediately or start renting it out. On the other hand, villas under construction have convenient payment schemes from the developer, which reduces the financial burden on the buyer. In addition, the sale price is lower than on the secondary market and only increases as construction is completed.
