10 Best 1-Bedroom Apartment for Sale in Dubai Marina

Apartment for Sale in Dubai Marina Pricing Guide by Brick Angel

In most locations, the smaller units are generally the most transacted. More so in tourism-friendly communities like Dubai Marina.

For this reason, we’ve tracked and analyzed all the latest 1-bedroom listings in Dubai Marina.

In the table below we’ve graded the 10 most profitable 1-bedroom in Dubai Marina

These are the TOP 10 flats out of over 600 active listings and out of almost 200 buildings where developers have included 1-bedroom in the mix.

In the case of Dubai Marina, there are more than 10 profitable 1-bedroom apartments. But the table ranks the TOP 10 as they are right at this moment. Based on profits. 

For each apartment, we’re showing the mean price and the mean profits. In three currencies. And we’re showing 3 traffic lights to visually indicate how bad (red), borderline ok (orange) and good (green) each apartment is doing in relation to profitability, desirability, and safety.


Because the 1-bedroom properties worth buying are:


SOUND - they are profitable after all expenses are paid. 

SPECIAL - they have views, layouts, ratings, and locations that people like.

SAFE - they are profitable even in a bad market ← this is kind of VERY important


To be clear properties are profitable only when rents are enough to cover the cost of service charges, property taxes, and the home loan. Only then properties can be profitable. And only then they can provide a nifty and sustainable cash flow.

Let’s get into the data.

Top 10 Best 2-Bedroom for Sale in Dubai Marina by Brick Angel
  • Some fo the best 1-Bedroom in Dubai Marina are waterfront
  • Studio One tower rules as it has the only green signal for safety

At AED 15.2k (INR 31 lakh, EUR 3.6k) in NET cash flow/year the recently completed Studio One by Select Group rules the Top 10 list.

In tenth place, and getting the only orange signal for profitability, stands the Belvedere in Dubai Marina South. Which earns an average of AED 5.9k (INR 1.2 lakh, EUR 1.4k) in net profits per year. Since the profits are so little the signal is orange which indicates borderline ok results.


The signals in the second column indicate if the property is special in any way.


Be it views, layout, age, access to amenities, or great ratings. Unfortunately, the red signal for the Belvedere and the Zumurud Tower indicates that they're profitable but they are not likable

They fail in one or more of the likability criteria.


While the signals in the third column show if the property in question is safe.


In Q1 of 2021, only the water view Studio One earns a green signal. This means that it is safe also in a bad market when properties have less occupancy and rents drop.

None of the other 1-bedroom apartments listed in the Top 10 are clearly unsafe (that would mean a red signal) but they are borderline Ok.

In the video below we’re going deeper into the data. We’ll take a virtual tour of the buildings and the area as well as share their age, ratings, location, and their overall desirability.

As well as look into the critically important rental income, running and ownership costs, and more. Watch the video to know more →

Our number one job is to help property buyers and property investors find profitable and safe properties in desirable locations. 

That’s why we work really, really, REALLY hard on our algorithm to make sure it is as accurate as possible. But. .. it’s really hard to overcome all kinds of human mistakes, misbehavior, and mindsets.

Since all tables depend on the latest listings the algorithm has to overcome many honest mistakes in how agents, developers, and owners input their property’s information. That’s easy to spot. 

But then there are cheeky behaviors like listings with prices full of 999 or 888. 

And then there’s the outright lies and frauds. Where properties are falsely priced below the market rate to attract inquiries. That’s called bait and switch. Or listings with significantly wrong sizes. And so on.

That’s harder to spot. But it affects the overall data. Therefore, we take no liability for the recommendations we offer. In fact, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you speak to an experienced community expert property advisor. And we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you do your own calculations.

We believe our work is vital to guide property investors in the right direction. And to avoid most of the traps many property buyers fall into. But you also need common sense and prudence.  Use our data to find the direction and then get help from experts and to make sure all the numbers make sense.

Wishing you a happy property hunting.
