There is a right way and a wrong way to view the property. No matter where you go in the world, there is always a right and wrong way to look at prospective properties you want to buy. The rules may be different but for that country, those rules spell out the right and wrong ways for any buyer.
The right way for international investors to look at any property in Dubai is to follow the rules set out by RERA. That way you know you are getting the correct information and you are dealing with ethical brokers.
Whenever you go looking for a new home whether it is for you to live in or for an investment property, make sure to follow the rules of the country you are looking in. That way your purchase and reselling of the home will always be legitimate
Buyers Who Fail To Make Payments On Time Get Penalized- While developers get fined for delaying projects, they get to cancel a booking if the buyer delays payments.
Developers Can Delay The Registration Of A Project- If the fault of the delay is beyond their control, RERA allows developers to file for registration extensions.
Developers Can Sell Their Properties Faster- RERA helps sell unsold properties faster so that the developers make their money and get rid of the homes that have been sitting around for a while.
There Is More Transparency And Accountability With RERA- This makes real estate transactions easier to complete and the cash flow is sped up and managed a lot better.
RERA works for both sides to make sure that real estate transactions have fewer casualties financially speaking.
Every organization has both positive and negative features about them. The key is to make sure there are more positive aspects than negative ones. With RERA it may be that way.
There are more disadvantages that come with the Dubai version of RERA. The first one is that everything in the city is under the authority of one man. What he says goes and laws and regulations, including RERA, can change at any time.
The laws, etc., will be what one man wants and no one really has any say in the matter, especially all the international ex-pats who have bought in this city. The second major disadvantage to RERA in Dubai is the focus on religion.
Dubai is very Muslim and all citizens and ex-pats must be wary of these laws and abide by them. That means they have restrictions on what and where they can drink, and what they can wear, as well as having to be married to live together.
These are just some of the examples that international investors have to be concerned about or RERA can disallow their purchase, etc. Then RERA makes sure that there must be an intermediary present for the real estate transaction.
While this is to make sure both sides are protected by the law and the integrity of the transaction is maintained, it can get tedious at times with the transaction slowed down.
Finally, there are fees and taxes on most items involved in real estate transactions.
These are the main two benefits buyers will get when dealing with RERA-sanctioned real estate transactions
Buyers Will Get The Correct Information About A Property- This is one of the strengths of RERA as it seeks to cut down on fraud schemes. The buyer should have all information needed to make a purchase decision
They Are Protected From Con Men- While there is a low crime rate in Dubai, there are still con men trying to fleece international buyers out of their money. By dealing with RERA-registered brokers, builders, and mortgage brokers, the buyer is relatively safe from scams
According to the law, there is no established commission fee rate for Dubai RERA brokers. The law states that the commission is set by agreement and often, developers pay a higher-than-normal rate to make sure their properties are given the best attention.
