Home: Living Here: Real Estate and Property in the UAE

The real estate industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a major issue, as most expats living in the UAE normally rent the apartment, flat, or villa they are living in. This article attempts to help those who are looking for online resources that have listings of properties in the UAE, as well as provide them with general information on renting property.

Newspaper Classifieds
Gulf News, the leading English daily, has a classifieds property section on its website, which are divided into two sections - Abu Dhabi & Al Ain and Dubai & The Northern Emirates (Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, and Fujairah). Khaleej Times, the second popular English daily, has classifieds properties sections for Abu Dhabi & Al Ain, Dubai, and Sharjah.

Real Estate Agencies
For the contact details of all the real estate agents in the UAE, click here (Etisalat Yellow Pages) or here (Hawk Business Pages). For a list of real estate agencies that have websites, click here, and most of them are Dubai real estate companies.

Online Property Resources
All of the online property resources which were dedicated to the UAE have been closed or are no longer updated, so TEN has launched its own real estate resource, TEN Real Estate.

Renting Guide
The information previously found here has been re-written, expanded and moved to Renting Property in the United Arab Emirates.

Owning Property in UAE
Not until recently it wasn't possible to own property in the United Arab Emirates, but that all changed in 2002. Click here to learn more about the History of Freehold Property in the United Arab Emirates.
