Depending on where you want to live, the figure you shell out for rent annually in Dubai is incredibly varied.
In a Q3 report, property and management specialists Asteco noted you could be paying anything from AED32,500 for a one bed in International City up to AED130,000 for a one bed on the Palm Jumeirah.
But it’s good news all round, as rental prices have continued to decline in the previous quarters, by 3% and 2% since Q2 2018, and 11% and 9% compared with the same period last year, a downward trend that’s expected to last into 2019.
Here are five of the most affordable residential areas this year
1. International City
Annual rent from AED32,500 to AED42,500.
