For those looking for a residential living space, a plethora of options await them in Dubai’s serene neighborhoods with each boasting of amenities and facilities of their own. Hence, the struggle to select the perfect place is real and, needless to say, difficult. Especially with all the listings for various apartments, flats, townhouses and villas for rent in Dubai, selecting the right one can be an overwhelming task.

Generally, an ideal place to get an apartment is defined as a location that’s gained a lot of popularity. This could be with respect to the amenities, locality, costs, facilities and most of all, public demand.

Even though the situation depends upon individual needs, getting an idea of the current market helps to narrow options down. There are a few places in Dubai that are getting attention unlike any other place in the emirate. Let’s take a look at some of them:

Discovery Gardens:

Located ideally between Sheikh Zayed Road and Emirates Road in Jebel Ali is the Discovery Gardens. The community covers an area of 26 million square feet and is one of the remarkable projects by Nakheel. With themes dedicated to garden living styles, the community is divided into 6 major portions::

1.       Contemporary

2.       Cactus

3.       Zen

4.       Mediterranean

5.       Mogul

6.       Mesoamerican

The residential area features almost 300 buildings with a total of 26000 residential units. The layouts of these residences are mostly studio, one or two-bedroom apartments.

To cater to all residents’ needs, almost 200 retail stores are present around the residential area. The best part about the Discovery Gardens is that it’s a freehold community. That means expats can own the properties available here as well.

Downtown Dubai:

Developed by Emaar Properties, Downtown Dubai stands tall as the perfect depiction of modern architectural sophistication. This signature development by Emaar has gained fame worldwide.

The infrastructure of this area is famous for hosting some of the most notable landmarks in the world including Burj Khalifa, the Dancing Fountains of Dubai and the Dubai Mall. That means, all those who’re living in the area can have the whole world’s luxuries right at their doorstep.

Hosting world-class amenities is one of the defining factors that compel buyers, Downtown Dubai offers amazing ROI as well. In case you’re looking to invest, it’s the perfect location that will be in constant demand. If you’re looking to rent, you can find yearly rates starting from AED 45,000 for a studio. Going up the ladder, we can also find 2-bed apartments available for yearly rents of AED 120,000.

Bur Dubai:

It goes without saying that bigger living spaces are expensive. Therefore, not everyone can buy a 3 or 4-BHK apartment in most communities in Dubai. To cater to that need, Bur Dubai offers exquisite living spaces with top-notch amenities available at a reasonable price. It’s unlikely that you’ll find the same amenities and facilities at a different place with this size at these rates. With yearly rents starting from just AED 75,000, one might think it’s too good to be true.

Bur Dubai has managed to become one of the most demanded places in Dubai due to its affordable rates. Furthermore, the community also has the best schools, entertaining malls and access to the city’s main attractions too. Being the family-friendly community that it is, Bur Dubai attracts families from all over the world.

Be it healthcare amenities, grocery stores, retail hubs or fitness centers. Everything will be available right outside your doorstep.


Jumeirah Village Circle is an up and coming community that has earned its reputation as one of the best communities in Dubai. Not a lot of areas are in as much demand as the JVC. The area boasts of luxuries that one can expect from a completely suburban neighbourhood and provides apartments along with villas as well.

Providing a healthy environment with massive green landscapes surrounding the community, the residences offer ideal family homes. Unsurprisingly, top-notch retail centers, amenities and accessibility to the main city are some of the perks of moving into the JVC.

You can find 2-bedroom apartments starting from AED 75,000 in this family-oriented community.

Dubai Marina:

Lastly, a community that has been ranking on the top for a while is Dubai Marina. The area offers everything from central city attractions to retail hubs and top of the line amenities.

The residences in Dubai Marina do not just offer comfortable and spacious units, but it also offers the best nightlife. Experience all the fun the emirate can offer in one of the best places for real estate in Dubai. Whether it be night clubs and access to malls and entertainment centers or scenic horizons from the comfort of your bed, you’ll find everything at Dubai Marina.

It’s close proximity to Dubai Media and Internet City only adds to the pros you get with a place like Dubai Marina.
