Since we opened our doors in 2008, we have moved over 33,000 families into homes and are involved in thousands of leases each year.

Step 1 – Find a reliable broker

It is paramount for you to find an agent whom you can trust and build, not only a professional but friendly relationship with. It is so important that you feel you can have an open and honest conversation with your broker.

Step 2 – Do your own due diligence

You have a price you would like to achieve in mind, but is this achievable and realistic in the Dubai property market? Jump on property portals and have a real good look around to compare not only the properties in your area but areas further afield which offer similar properties to your own. Your broker will also share advice and insight into the property market and the area you are looking to rent out your property in Dubai. They will provide you with market appraisals and show you the prices of properties that have recently been let in your area.

Step 3 – Consider going exclusive

Exclusivity with one agent ensures your property is marketed with one message and in one specific way. This will avoid the potential of a multitude of differing adverts of your investment appearing on Dubai property portals, some of which can even display a different asking price than you had agreed with your broker.

Step 4 – Marketing

It is so important to declutter your home before the selling process begins. Your property will be professionally photographed, and you want this to be as clean and attractive as possible. If there are any snagging jobs to be done, we will advise that you complete these before the marketing of your property is commenced.
EYES AND BIRDS REAL ESTATE BROKER put a lot of time and money into the marketing of your property. We can take professional pictures, do 3D tours, selected property video tours which will be boosted on our social media channels. We will conduct dedicated team call-out sessions, email, and SMS communication with our tenants.

Step 5 – Viewings

Again, make sure your property is in the best condition before a potential tenant comes to view. It is a good idea to tell your broker what you love about the property, so they can relay this message to potential tenants and highlight the property’s key features that are perhaps invisible to the naked eye.

Step 6 – Consider Property Management

This may be your only investment property in Dubai or you may have a healthy portfolio, either way, it would be our pleasure to offer you a helping hand to manage this investment. The EYES AND BIRDS REAL ESTATE BROKER property management team can take away the stress and strain which may occur when renting out your property and can give you peace of mind that your property will be well looked after.

Step 7 – Be Flexible

When an offer of multiple cheques is brought to the table, please be willing to compromise. Gone are the days where companies will pay rent in one cheque. More often than not, rent is paid by the tenant themselves and you are more likely to get a higher price if you are willing to accept multiple cheques. The majority of properties leased in EYES AND BIRDS REAL ESTATE BROKER are paid for in multiple cheques.

Step 8 – Sign on the dotted line

You have received an offer that you’re ready to accept. It is now time to check everything over and sign! Be sure to as your broker if there is a certain part of the contract which you need to get clarification on.
