In the middle of nowhere, hundreds of people were waiting for the arrival of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid - the Ruler of Dubai.

We were on the banks of a man-made water canal. One that was going to be 3 km long. Or so we were told. 

At that point, it was just a few hundred meters long. Built on a basically empty stretch of land between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. At least 30 min drive away from the city. 

To me, it looked like a highway construction site. 

The one odd thing was the cement block walls on both sides and that it was below sea level. That much was clear. As we were standing next to the Arabian sea.

In the picture, you see delegates from across the city gathering for an opening ceremony 

On Tuesday, October 17th, 2000, a bunch of people came to see the start of a multi-billion-dirham, a decades-long project that ultimately changed the face of Dubai.

This was the beginning of Dubai Marina. A big hole in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of people expecting water gushing from the sea when Sheikh Mohammed finally opened the water tab.

(We waited hours for his white G-Wagon to appear expecting to witness the sea coming in. Little did we know that it would take 30 days to fill that whole, quite anticlimactic).

Today, Dubai Marina is almost completed (there’s hardly any empty plot left). And is at the center of many communities that simply didn’t exist before. 

Close by to Dubai Marina, there’s a man-made island in the shape of a palm, a recently completed peninsula with the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, the most visited walking promenade in Jumeirah Beach Residence, the under-construction peninsula of Dubai Harbour and much, much more.

But, where are investors supposed to look for profits? In the original 6 towers of phase 1? or in the tallest block in the world? Or the newest waterfront development in Dubai Marina?

Building Guides

To know more we've prepared the Building Guides. Where we review, analyze, grade, and list the latest properties for sale and for rent. To help real estate investors quickly find profitable, desirable, and safe deals.


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.
