5 Dubai Properties That Cost Under A Million Dirhams

When it comes to investing in Dubai properties or anywhere else in the world for that matter, there is one major misconception. Only millionaires can afford to invest in property. Some of us hesitate to invest because we believe only those with a 7 figure salary can invest in property. Fortunately, thanks to developers of Dubai properties tapping into the market of affordable housing, this isn’t the case anymore.

Below are five popular areas that feature Dubai properties that cost less than 1 million dirhams



Situated within Dubailand, this emerging district features incredible villa and townhouse developments.

Jumeirah Village Circle is another one of Dubai's outskirt areas that is steadily gaining popularity like Silicon Oasis, International City, and Motor City. Jumeirah Village Circle is a serene community that features family sized villas and townhouses that are affordable for those new to Dubai.

The days where only millionaires had the opportunity to invest in real estate is long gone.
