Apartments for sale in Abu Dhabi, the UAE

Until recently, it was difficult for foreign citizens to buy real estate in Abu Dhabi, but after 2019 the situation has changed dramatically. The emirate’s government has approved a list of areas where foreign nationals can acquire a property in full ownership. The list includes many resort areas and investment zones. Buying an apartment in Abu Dhabi for foreigners is available on the resort islands of Marina, Saadiyat, Yas and in other prestigious areas of the city.

The emirate is building many residential complexes where you can buy studios, flats, and penthouses. All modern residential complexes in Abu Dhabi are built with the latest construction technologies, and apartment layouts are designed by the best architects so that future owners can enjoy comfortable and ergonomic living spaces.

In the emirate, you can find both small flats in Abu Dhabi and luxury residences with sea views, access to a private beach and many amenities on the territory of a residential complex.

For those who want to buy housing at a price below the market, there is an option to buy an off-plan property. It is most profitable to buy a flat in Abu Dhabi at the development stage, when the developer announces the launch of a residential complex.

Currently, the island communities of Yas, Al Reem, and Saadiyat are being actively built up in the city.
