I was wondering this as well?!


Anyway, I have viewed a few places in khalifa in the 60-90k bracket and a couple in MBZ. I wasn't overly impressed to be honest. A lot I saw were very badly finished. (One had a hole in the wall which had been half covered with a bit of wood and a couple of nails I asked if that was temporary and he said no that was it in its fixed state) I ran away from that one.

Another one was the Al Dana compound, those apartments actually have rooms with no windows. I imagined myself sat in a windowless room slowly going crazy.

No doubt there are some ok places for 40-50k but you might have to do a lot of viewing, be prepared for a good amount of time sat waiting for unreliable agents to turn up and then show you something for 90k cos they never listen to what you actually want. Just my experience anyway.

Ans: Repeated references to "European" and questions about avoiding smelly and dirty communities.

I think that is due to illegally split villas/apartments/rooms which are still common around from Abu Dhabi, left over from the times about 3/4 years ago when demand was sky high and supply very limited.
I think under 50 K AED for a good rental property is unlikely. Plus demand is still high in the mid-low price range as many people are relocating from Dubai to Abu Dhabi - government and related organisations are all demanding this in AD. Where I work it is now enforced through our employment contracts.

I've seen a few of those. But this is a new compound. It's just the way they designed the inside and then put them all in a row. So you have a room in the centre that has no windows. It's the Al Dana compound in Khalifa A not far from Etihad Plaza. I was shocked considering it was recently built. Very bad design

Poor assumption.

Default Apartment rent in Abu Dhabi

Hi All,

I am moving from Dubai to Abu Dhabi for work. Looking for a 1 bed apartment on Abu Dhabi island. My budget can go up to a maximum of AED90k a year. Looking for professional expat community living.

In Dubai I was living right opposite the Burj Khalifa in the downtown developments. Its probably unlikely that I can expect to get anything nearly as good as that for the same price in AD is it?

Also my work will be on the Corniche so I dont want to commute from somewhere like Al Raha Gardens.

Any advice much apprecited

Thanks
