Bur Dubai apartments have a central location, which made it a bit pricey from the initial stage. However, in 2009, Dubai launched a Metro train, which gave the residence of Burjuman, ADCB, and nearby a better traveling medium. As a result, the rental prices of the residential apartments in these areas started to rise and soon were at their peak.

Last year, a residence had to pay a rent of Dh85000-Dh100000 a year for a two BHK flat in Bur Dubai.

Consequently, a lot of tenant and families have to move out and find cheaper apartments in places like Sharjah.

The two BHK which charged around DH 85000 last year are now available at DH65000 per year. The best part is the Dubai apartments have 5-10% more vacancy rate than the past year.
