Our rental yields research indicates that some good fundamentals underpin Dubai´s property market. Apartments in Dubai now sell for around USD 3,700 to USD 4,300 per square metre (sq m):
This is an unusual pattern - smaller apartments usually are more expensive than larger apartments (per sq. m.) in the other major world cities.
Rents from small and medium-sized apartments average USD 22 per sq. m. per month, while large apartments rent for a little less, at USD 21 per sq. m. per month. Looking from the landlord´s point of view, these rental levels mean that a 75 sq. m. apartment can earn rental income of around USD 1,700 per month, while 120 sq. m. and 160 sq. m. apartments can earn rental incomes of around USD 2,700 and USD 3,700 per month, respectively, and 225 sq. m apartments can earn a monthly rental income of around USD 4,800 per month.
In conclusion the gross rental yields, i.e., the gross returns on investment if the apartment is fully rented out, are moderate to good, range from 5.87% on large apartments, to 7.21% on small apartments, the difference stemming from the lower cost of the smaller apartments, in per sq. n. terms.
