Now, dealing with unprofessional real estate agents can be an inconvenient and frustrating experience for buyers, sellers, tenants, and landlords. From not returning calls to showing you a property that doesn't match its online listing, these situations can make it hard to find a true professional. To help you find a reliable real estate agent or property developer, here are some tips to consider:

  1. Before engaging with a real estate agent, it is important to ensure they are employed by a reputable real estate agency. Do some research to determine how long the business has been operating in Dubai and if they have earned any business awards. Companies that are highly esteemed often provide thorough training to their consultants to give them the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful.

  1. The Dubai Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) was founded in 2007 to control the Dubai real estate market. As a result, RERA is in charge of authorizing all real estate operations, such as licensed real estate agents.

  1. Real estate agents who specialize in a particular area are invaluable. They have the knowledge and expertise to understand the unique features that make your property and neighborhood stand out from the rest. As your agent continues to work in the same area, their area knowledge will grow and they will be better equipped to represent your property.

Visit Driven Properties and browse through the various available listings of JVC.

In addition, the filters on our user-friendly website help to tailor the selection according to your requirements.

Furthermore, if you are a US citizen looking to purchase property in the UAE, it is important to bear in mind the country's expat-friendly taxation system. While the UAE does not levy tax on purchased property, expatriates must still consider any legal liabilities that may arise in their home countries. For instance, any earnings such as rental income, interest on savings, and dividend payments may be subject to tax in the United States. For this reason, it is recommended that you consult with a tax agent in your own country to gain a clearer understanding of any tax liabilities associated with foreign property purchases before making the decision to buy.
