Companies that Manage Properties

The necessity for management businesses to take over the management of an owner’s flat arises from the amount of real estate purchases and the ongoing growth in demand for rentals. This is because most owners do not reside in Dubai or the UAE and must rent out their apartments. These businesses also assist tenants looking to rent an apartment in Dubai. In addition to offering all of these services, businesses such as Colife also assist with apartment purchases, helping clients choose the best options based on their in-depth knowledge and extensive real estate market experience​ (Altitude Real Estate)​​ (Livin’ Experts)​.

The government of Dubai has consistently taken the initiative to shape the real estate market and establish trends for 2024. Development will be encouraged, for instance, by the Golden Visa program, which provides property owners with a permanent residence guarantee. Additionally, Dubai’s real estate developers will probably concentrate most of their efforts on the growing middle class. This is consistent with government initiatives such as the introduction of long-term residency visas and the reduction of transaction costs​ (Altitude Real Estate)​​ (Realtree Properties)​.


Given the highs and lows experienced in the more expensive segments of Dubai’s real estate market in the past, 2024 is indicating that purchasers are starting to favor mid-range properties since they are regarded as safer investments. Many factors contribute to this stability, including developer-provided attractive payment choices and reasonable prices​ (Altitude Real Estate)​​ (Realtree Properties)​.
