A Common Misconception - The Cost of Living In Dubai


Dubai is one of the most popular places to live in the world. A common misconception is that Dubai is a very expensive place to live when in general, it is completely affordable. In this blog post, we will compare prices for apartments, food, and transportation in Dubai to other major cities around the world. We'll also provide some tips on how to save money while living in Dubai. 

The first thing to consider is the price of housing. In Dubai, you can expect to pay less for an apartment than you would in most major cities around the world. Obviously, location plays a major role in price, where you can expect to pay a bit more for an apartment Downtown than in nearby areas. For example, renting a one-bedroom apartment in Dubai will cost you an average of AED 80K ($21.7K) per year. In New York City, by contrast, the same size apartment would cost you nearly twice as much, at AED 152K ($41.4K) per year. So if you're looking for a place to call home, Dubai is definitely worth considering.

Food is another important consideration when it comes to the cost of living. In Dubai, you can find plenty of affordable restaurants that serve delicious food. You can also find discounts on food if you know where to look. For example, many supermarkets offer discounts on certain days of the week. If you're willing to cook at home, you can save a lot of money.

When it comes to transportation, the cost of living in Dubai is very reasonable. You can easily get around by taxi, the metro, or public bus. And if you need to travel further, there are plenty of affordable options for flights and busses. So getting around Dubai is definitely not a problem.

Overall, the cost of living in Dubai is very reasonable. If you're thinking of making the move, fäm Properties can help you find the perfect place to call home. Contact us today to learn more!
