Abu Dhabi is a capital region and the development strategy of "Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030" provides the formation of a favorable social and cultural environment as well as sustainable development and growth. At the same time, there are many real estate options in Abu Dhabi, from residential developments featuring budget-friendly small studios, to luxurious and spacious villas in resort areas, as well as commercial real estate, land plots and industrial projects in designated zones.
Our specialists will facilitate you during the process of choosing the best options for both purchases and rentals in various price segments, as well as finding a suitable property for investment.
Purchase of Real Estate by Foreign Citizens
Since 2019, expats can purchase properties in the UAE with 100% ownership in freehold areas, which are to be found in Abu Dhabi as well. These include Saadiyat Island, Yas Island, Masdar City, Al Raha Beach, Reem Island, Al Reef, Al Maryah Island and Al Shamkha, among others. It is worth noting that the list of these areas is updated from time to time. Since we are always aware of the latest news, we will provide the most recent information at the time of contact.
In other areas, expats may be granted the right to use real estate for a period of 99 years with a restriction on changing the property (Usufruct). It is also possible to obtain rights to real estate for up to 50 years under certain conditions, for example, for raising funds, renovating a project or building a plot (Musataha). This type of ownership is more relevant for large companies which are implementing industrial or other long-term investment projects.
Best Areas to Buy and Invest
When choosing an area of residence in Abu Dhabi, you should keep in mind your place of work and the distance to social facilities, such as hospitals, schools, kindergartens and shops. Of course, you may have your own personal preferences – a sports club nearby for your child or a workshop where you can practice your favorite hobby. There are also buyers who pay special attention not just to comfort, but also to the level of luxury a residence provides, meanwhile for other end users the distance between their property and the city center or the beach is of great importance. Abu Dhabi boasts an extensive real estate portfolio and we will help you find the right option, review all the necessary details and arrange the paperwork.
When choosing residential property for investment, the help of professionals is rather essential, since with us you can:
- Make a profitable deal in a short space of time.
- Learn about new projects as soon as they are launched, as purchasing a unit at construction stage is considered the most profitable investment as successful developments sell out fast.
Demand for rental properties is growing in Abu Dhabi, which is due to the development of the emirate as well as the creation of jobs for young professionals and highly qualified expats. Currently, there are both premium resort complexes and affordable high-quality apartments being built all over Abu Dhabi. Investing in this type of real estate in order to rent it out is quite popular and is considered a safe long-term investment. This applies to the affordable and luxury property segment alike.
Abu Dhabi is developing in an integrated manner, and the flow of investors as well the expansion of science and technology sectors increase the demand, not only for residential properties but also for new retail spaces, offices and industrial buildings.
