Here are some tips that you might find useful while searching for an apartment:
One of the most important things to consider is, make sure you have a residence visa because this would serve as the number one requirements most apartments owners would ask for. The visa gives you a legal support while living in Dubai.
You won’t like it if you find yourself in a situation where you have to live under debt in Dubai. Just because you want to live a luxury life, does not mean you should live a life beyond your capacity. Many expats live under debt because what they earlier planned was not what they find themselves doing. Therefore it would be good if you would know the size of your pockets and your financial status before deciding on the type of apartments you would acquire.
If you are new in Dubai, I would advise you to look for a companion that would guide you through all the necessary processes involve in getting a new apartment whether you are planning to buy or rent one. However, there are government agencies you can meet, and would also help you through this. Nevertheless, ensure that you possessed all valid relevant documents including passport and visa before contacting these local agencies.
If you wish to settle and work in Dubai for long term, I will advise you to buy a new apartment if you have the means to do that. This would provide you long term benefits and for sure, a resident visa. However, if you don’t plan to stay for a long term in Dubai, renting an apartment would be a better option for you as there are lots numbers of housing available for rent in Dubai.
If you are going to Dubai on vocation, furnished and serviced apartments can be best option for you if you can afford it. This type of apartment can make you live comfortably for a short time period and has all the basic amenities that would make your stay in Dubai a memorable one.
