Here are some key concepts to consider if you are a real estate agent selling property in Dubai.
Know your audience
Knowing who you are selling to is a great start, when doing business in Dubai, there are a couple of things you need to consider.
A typical working week is Sunday to Thursday rather than our Monday to Friday. Also because of the high temperatures in Dubai, working hours can vary from 8am to 1pm then continue from 4pm until 7pm. Knowing your audience will help you to target buyers at optimal times on the best days.
Follow the laws
It’s important to be aware of all property laws in Dubai, there’s nothing worse than getting your property investment in place to find out that a certain law may be stopping you to move forward just because you didn’t know about it.
Look for advice on government websites about property laws in the UAE, one important thing you will need to obtain is a ‘property holders visa’ which allows foreign investors to stay in the UAE for up to 6 months. Be sure to follow any recent changes in the property industry, you can keep up to date with changes on UAE forums and newspapers.
There are many benefits of investing in Dubai property, some of which include:

When you invest in property, you’re investing in the country’s economy. Dubai has been rich in oil and its city continues to improve year on year. Since 2010 it was one of the top five ranked fastest growing economies in the world, certainly a top country to invest property in.
- No Tax
Dubai has no property tax and no income tax, this is because the UAE has earned its revenue through the oil industry, this will make it cheaper and easier to buy and sell property in Dubai compared to other desired countries.
