What you should know about Buying Off Plan Properties in Dubai

What are the key questions you should ask yourself before investing in Dubai's lucrative off plan property market?


Dubai is a lucrative market when it comes to buying and selling properties – especially off-plan properties in Dubai. Many investors have identified Dubai as their go-to location to invest in high return off plan projects that are secure and backed by decades of success. However, investing in off-plan projects is a high stakes game and not everyone's cup of tea. For new investors here are some of the critical factors that need to be looked at when making a decision.

First and foremost it's important to be absolutely clear as to whether you wish to buy properties for investment purposes or to live in it yourself. For instance, you would want to choose a smaller unit that is easy to rent out and therefore offers a secure and consistent return.

Secondly, location is key when it comes to choosing your property regardless of whether it's for investment purposes or to live in. Some of the important questions to ask yourself when evaluating an off-plan project are:

1. Does the property currently have easy access to major highways or will there be access to major highways by the time the project is handed over to you?

2. How close is it to schools, malls, and hospitals? A property that is easily accessible will be far easier to rent out than one that is further away.

3. Similarly how far is it from pharmacies, supermarkets, dry cleaners etc.?

4. You also want to be asking yourself how easy it will be to resell the property once it's completed in a few years – this is something that is missed by seasoned property investors and consultants as well. For instance, you can get a great villa for 1 – 1.5 million AED but if you have to drive 15-20 KM to the nearest supermarket, you will have a very tough time re-selling it.

5. Do not make the mistake of buying a property that looks great on paper but is built with poor quality materials or has imperfectly shaped rooms. Again, it will be tough to sell this kind of property in the future. It's easy to get lured in by attractive payment plans but its worth the time and effort spent on digging deeper and investigating the build and the developers' reputation etc.

6. For instance, if you had the option to buy similar properties in Dubai Hills and Emirates Living (both are close to Sheikh Zayed Road and both are excellent communities from a "quality of development" perspective), choose the one which is newer in terms of its construction. A newer townhouse will require less maintenance and therefore will eventually save you money in the long run. That's one of the main reasons why off-plan properties are a far better option compared to ready properties if you are looking to move in 2-3 years down the road.

With a City like Dubai, that's continuously expanding there are always opportunities to capitalize on off-plan projects and reap the rewards of a long term investment.
