Property search is the first most important step to finding your dream home – be it for buying or renting. Hence, it is crucial that you decide on the best portal available for searching properties in Dubai.
Over the years, Dubai has seen considerable growth in real estate investments. Both domestic and international buyers have been reaping the strong economy’s benefits. A global hub for businesses, Dubai offers plenty of growth opportunities. As a result, the city has seen a spike in foreign investors and job-seekers flocking to Dubai. Eventually, the real estate sector has been witnessing higher demands over time. So are property search platforms and portals. Finding the right property in the right neighbourhood for the right price is indeed a task. To help your property search easier, we at D&B Properties have put together a list of top portals for property search. We have narrowed down on the top three portals based on popularity and user-friendly experiences.
Available in both English and Arabic languages, Dubizzle is the most popular property search portal that you can find in Dubai. It not only specialises in real estate but also on various other classifieds, making it a website that suits everyone. In other words, it is an online marketplace. Dubizzle lists properties, consumer classifieds, and even jobs, attracting much traffic. The portal has an online website as well as an app available for mobile phones and tabs. Both the versions are user-friendly and easy to navigate. When it comes to the mobile app, one of the most attractive features is the “exclude” option. It allows users to hide listings from particular communities or specific buildings. Search options include properties for sale and renting for commercial and residential purposes. You can search for apartments/flats, villas/houses, or even plots for buying. Recently, the portal has also included “New Projects,” listing all off-plan properties available in Dubai. When it comes to renting, you can further narrow down your results by rent payment frequency, short-term, and long-term. Check out some of our listings in Downtown Dubai on Dubizzle here.
Just as the name suggests, Property Finder is a website that specialises in real estate. It has several listings on both rentals and sales, for commercial and residential purposes. With a vast geographical coverage, it includes all emirates of UAE. Additionally, it also lists from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and Qatar, covering a major part of the Middle East. Available in English and Arabic, the property search portal has an extra feature called Rent vs Buy Calculator. It calculates the total cost of buying a property and compares it to its rental costs, helping investors decide on the best option. Also available as an app, its mobile version has a “Map View” enabling users to search for properties near them. It displays the location of the properties and its prices just as hotel rates are displayed on Google Maps. Recently, Property Finder added a new option for virtual viewings, with 360-degree VR tours and living viewings to choose from. Some of the most sought-after properties by Emaar, for example, offer VR tours. They allow people to navigate through the properties at the comfort of their homes. You can choose from off-plan and ready properties. Check out some of our listings on Property Finder here.
Bayut is yet another property search portal that caters to a wider geographical area other than just UAE. The portal emphasises on providing valuable information and advice to investors and tenants. It operates in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan as well. Bayut even has the option to choose among eight different currencies, including INR, EUR, and USD. The website is available in English and Arabic languages. The property search portal has an exclusive section dedicated to floor plans for various properties. Most of the popular communities in Dubai, including Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, and Business Bay, are included. Bayut is also available as an app for mobiles phones and tabs, which is user-friendly and easy-to-navigate. There is also a blog session with many informative articles to educate yourself about the property market in Dubai. One of the most attractive sections in this property search portal is its “Market Intelligence” segment. It has in-depth analyses about market trends, houses prices, and major developments in the real estate sector. Various “area,” “building,” and “school” guides are also available for all the seven emirates in the UAE. Check out some of our listings on Bayut here.
