Ready Property in Dubai 

When buying real estate the first question is whether to opt for an off-plan property (a property that is being built and hasn’t been completed) or to buy a ready property, a property that is ready to move in. 

The option that suits your needs depends on what you want to do with the property after the purchase. There are 3 options:

  • Buy a property to sell it when completed 
  • Buy a property to rent it out when completed 
  • Buy a property to live there
