Famed for the record-breaking Burj Khalifa skyscraper and the biggest mall in the world - The Dubai Mall, which are both located in the sought-after district of Downtown Dubai, Emaar Properties is rightfully considered one of the top luxury developers worldwide.
In the first half of 2021, the award-winning development company achieved a record AED 23.5B (USD 6.4B) in real estate transactions, up from USD 1.4B during the same period last year.
Emaar attributes this excellent financial performance to the sale of under-construction projects and the successful releases of properties in the UAE and overseas. While the high-end segment of the real estate market in Dubai is currently enjoying a boom, it is worth considering an option of investing into luxury residential projects by Emaar Properties. Let’s take a look at the TOP-12 most popular apartments by Emaar, as well as their benefits, the key features of the properties and current prices.
for Sale by Emaar
The real estate portfolio of the largest listed developer in the UAE does not include budget-friendly properties, however, Emaar still remains in high demand due to on-time delivery of units, high quality finishings and fittings and attractive locations that the company chooses for its developments. It is worth noting that below-mentioned properties are worth over AED 1M (USD 272K) and provide buyers with an attractive opportunity of obtaining a 3-year renewable investment visa. As a matter of fact, the minimum financial requirement to apply for this type of visa was recently reduced to AED 750K (USD 205K) from AED 1M (USD 272K) in September 2021.
This offer is applicable only to residential freehold properties and units ready to move into. But even investing now in properties under construction, investors and buyers can count on a 3-year visa in the future, after all the construction work and commissioning of the project is complete. In case the property is mortgaged, 50% of its value has to be paid to the bank, or an amount equal to AED 750K (USD 205K) before a visa can be issued. This visa can be maintained for as long as the investor owns property in the UAE. Meanwhile, its benefits include eligibility for applying for family sponsorship, an Emirates ID, a UAE driving license and opening a bank account, just to name a few.
