Marina or Downtown? Downtown or Marina? Residents are rather protective of their district, so we expect some strong opinions on this one.

And the winner of the most popular place in Dubai to rent and buy is...

The Marina!

It’s the home of some of the city’s best restaurants and brunches, so we're not too surprised by its popularity. 


According to a report by Property Finder, the area was the most sought after to buy a home in during the first half of 2018, and saw twice as many searches as the runner up, Downtown Dubai. The top areas most searched for by prospective buyers were Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Ranches and Jumeirah Village Circle. Fancy. 

For the second half of the year, the top areas remained unchanged although JVC fell four spots and was replaced by Jumeirah Lakes Towers. 

The report also noted that across the Dubai market, demand for renting outweighs demand to buy.

That's settled, then.
