Living in Dubai: Five areas that offer homes with gardens for under Dh100,000 rent
With rents down in the city, more people are upgrading to spacious homes with extra amenities
Homes with private gardens in Dubai have become a popular choice for residents as Dubai’s pleasant weather and remote working conditions continue.
Spacious backyards are especially enjoyable before the summer, but those with private pools or outdoor air conditioning still make use of the outdoor space during hotter months.
These amenities are now more accessible than ever to a wider group of residents in the emirate due to a drop in rents.
Previously, annual rents for villas or townhouses with large and landscaped private gardens could easily go for more than Dh100,000.
Now, with newer communities on the rise and lower rents, properties have become more affordable.
