Due to the fact that for example New York a largely developed city, real estate prices are off the charts compared to Dubai. In addition to this, the spaces of the apartments are also much smaller. USD 1 million can buy 1700 square ft. of prime residential property in Dubai, but only 344 square ft. in New York. Rental yields are far more attractive in Dubai too.

Dubai is expanding as a city – and due to this, the population density remains lower than New York. Dubai is also a relatively much younger city, with a lot of scope to grow. The recent rules and regulations have resulted in longer visa periods for investors in the UAE.
