Economical Attractiveness

Purchasing a unit on Abu Dhabi Island is an ideal option for those looking to live in the heart of the emirate. Individuals and family members can appreciate the community’s well-developed infrastructure, which includes several leisure facilities and entertainment venues.

Abu Dhabi Island does not offer freehold property, which means that only citizens of GCC countries, such as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, can purchase real estate here. Apart from residential complexes, the island has office buildings located in a central business hub of the emirate. As for now, those units are not available to buy.

However, Metropolitan Capital Real Estate agents are always ready to find the unit that best corresponds to your needs and budget. Abu Dhabi residential real estate investments allow buyers the opportunity to apply for a residence visa.

Additionally, properties that have a starting price of AED 2,000,000 (USD 545,000) come with the opportunity to obtain a five-year Golden Visa, which includes family members.
