18 Apr 2024

Are you an investor seeking lucrative opportunities in Dubai? We've compiled a selection of 4 districts with the highest rental demand and yields of up to 12% for you.

We've specifically chosen locations where families with children most often rent apartments. They prioritize childcare facilities, family-friendly restaurants, proximity to prestigious schools, children's infrastructure, metro access, shopping destinations, and leisure spots.

Below, we've outlined the 4 most profitable districts from an investor's perspective. And all 4 meet the requirements described above.

Dubai Hills

This is a ready-made family neighborhood with a green park, a large mall, a golf club, and prestigious schools offering British curriculum education. Here, you can find everything for your child – sports clubs, playrooms, clubs, daycare centers, and much more.

Dubai Marina

This is one of the most popular tourist districts with its own bay, water canal, the famous boulevard The Walk, malls, and the restaurant complex Pier 7, among others. Several daycare centers are open here, and numerous playgrounds are scattered around.

Dubai Creek

This is a promising district where the «new Burj Khalifa» – Creek Tower – is being built. After its opening, the city center will shift to Dubai Creek. Here, there is a water canal with a beach, numerous restaurants, a green park, and promenades. Plus, plenty of walking areas, earning it the moniker «pedestrian paradise».


This is a district with office towers, hotels, and residential skyscrapers, interspersed with a green park featuring 3 lakes. The area has everything you need: children's and sports playgrounds, hospitals, supermarkets, restaurants, and two universities offering various educational programs.
