Owning a villa in Dubai is certainly something that only the rich and affluent can afford. These luxury dwellings offer every type of amenity and facility one can imagine.
Featuring spacious rooms, exceptional façade and enthralling interiors and exteriors, villas in Dubai exude elegance and class. Top communities in the city nestle these ultra-luxury living spaces. You can find villas for sale in Dubai in different configurations, sizes and architectural designs. Having said that, making the right decision is certainly not as easy as it seems.
There’s a lot to consider when selecting a villa that matches your needs and suits your budget. Take a look at them:
Be Clear with Your Requirements
Never start the home buying process until or unless you aren’t cleared with your basic requirements. It will unnecessarily prolong the entire process, as there will be ambiguities and confusions.
So, decide beforehand, how many bedrooms you want in your villa, is there a requirement for additional storage or maid’s room, whether you want to buy a villa that comes with an open terrace or not. Once you have found answers to all these questions, then start your pursuit of finding the best villa in the emirate.
Select the Area Carefully
As stated above, there are numerous communities where you can find offers for villas for sale in Dubai. Some of them have villas only, and no other type of residential property. The prices of villas, too, vary depending on the community. The ones located in prime locations in the emirate have high rates of villas and vice versa.
There are numerous factors that you need to take into account when finalising the location. One of the most important ones is its proximity to your workplace. No one likes to travel from one part of the city to another, on a daily basis. It can prove to be a real hassle. Thus, find a community for the villa that’s located near your office/workplace. Also, make sure the neighbourhood is self-contained. It should have educational, healthcare, shopping and entertainment facilities.
If you plan to buy a villa in a community away from the main city, make sure it is easily accessible via major routes.
A lot of people like their villa to be personalised according to their needs. And for this, they opt for making modifications to the existing structure. If you also intend to do the same, talk to your agent beforehand and ensure modifications are allowed on the property.
The reason why it is important to confirm about allowable modifications is that some developers do not allow buyers to make structural changes to their property. Moreover, some communities, too, do not allow villa owners to make changes to the structure of the property.
Developer’s Past Work
Not everyone pays attention to this fact, but it holds significant importance. Be it any type of property, a villa, apartment or townhouse, never buy it before verifying details about the developer and looking at their past work. By doing this, you will have a clear idea about the quality of their work.
Most villas come with a terrace so that residents could enjoy the astonishing views of the surroundings and Dubai’s skyline. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to this factor. Your villa shouldn’t be located in a spot where the only view you could enjoy is a construction site, power lines, or worse, a fish market.
Try and get a waterfront property as the views are refreshingly pleasant. However, bear in mind that such properties are more expensive.
Amenities and Facilities
The lavish lifestyle a villa gives to its residents is majorly due to the availability of top-notch amenities and facilities. These include a private swimming pool, BBQ deck, extra room for maid, advanced security measures, ample parking space etc. So, make sure the villa you have selected comes with all the state of the art amenities and facilities.
A Final Word
All in all, villas, indeed, offer a lavish lifestyle. Having said that, you will only be able to enjoy this premium lifestyle if you have made an informed choice in terms of buying a villa. And you will be able to do this only if you have taken into consideration the aforementioned considerations and recommendations.
