Falling rents in the UAE are a good reason to move into a brand-new apartment or villa in a desirable location. However, independent studies and reactions from real estate companies, property builders and families say another story.

While some residents are flexing their dealing forces to arrange a rent decrease in their current apartment, some are waiting for 'rents to fall further'. Some Sharjah residents are making a beeline to Dubai, to take advantage of the falling rents in certain localities. 'Anything to escape the Sharjah-Dubai traffic,' said one occupant.

However, a vast majority of residents prefer not to move at all, fearing very high moving costs. Including Dubai Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) charges, advance rent, municipality charges, movers' costs, and several other hidden costs.

"With the UAE land winding up progressively moderate, property-searchers and inhabitants have all the more haggling capacity to guarantee they are getting a precise market cost for their properties," included Abdin. In a survey of more than 1,400 individuals on the dubizzle stage in November 2018, more than 900 clients said they were presently leasing property in the UAE. 

Among those leasing properties, 18 percent said they arranged a decline of more than 15 percent on their yearly lease in the most recent year, with seven percent arranging a 10-15 percent diminishing, 18 percent arranging a 5-10 percent abatement, and 19 percent arranging a lessening of under five percent.
