Lack of public transport

However, the community is still developing. In the near future, it is planned to run a bus line for more intensive connection of the district with other areas of Dubai. Then, there will be enough bus stops all over Dubai Hills Estate to move around.
Besides, tenants who want to live in such luxury community as Dubai Hills Estate is likely to be used to riding their own transportation rather than catching a public one.
Hence, we are sure, lack of public transportation couldn’t be regarded as a major factor by your prospective tenants.

To tell the truth, if your rental properties aren’t located near the construction spots, you and your tenants have nothing to worry about. To go further, the area will be totally completed within this year. So, very soon construction noise will not be an issue anymore for any locations within the district.
To conclude, there is no true disadvantage of the area to scare tenants away. On the contrary, Dubai Hills Estate is regarded as the hottest and the newest place to live.
Still, do not forget the loyalty of your tenants depends not only on the conditions the community provides. To clarify, it also depends on proper management of the villa or apartment they live in. Yes, your landlord’s responsibilities require your time and effort. A way out here is to give them away to professionals.
