How to choose a developer in the UAE

How can I choose the right developer in the UAE? Here are some tips to help you find the best developer:

  • When choosing a construction company, check out the website and social media accounts associated with it. This will give you an idea of how long the company has been in the construction and real estate market, details about their business partners, awards, achievements, and other current news. In addition, make sure you read reviews from the developer's clients.
  • Analyze the completed projects of developers, as well as, projects that are currently in progress. For more assistance with this, you can access any projects directly from the website of the Dubai Land Department (DLD). However, this portal only offers information about the projects located in Dubai. Also, when visiting the website of the Dubai Land Department, pay particular attention to the date when the construction of the project started, at what stage the project is at the moment, and when the company plans to complete the project.
  • Consult property owners who are waiting for their projects to be completed as it happens that the developer delays the final date of the project and postpones the time of handing over the keys to the owners. Talking with clients of construction companies allows you to understand more about that particular developer’s pros and cons and find out whether the developer is reliable.
