July 2010 8 HOME TRUTHS HOME TRUTHS The latest news, facts and figures direct from the property frontline BETTER MANAGEMENT Janine Crisp, Head of Property Management at Better Homes, on why tenants prefer to rent managed units. Managed units have always been a preferred option for tenants of all kinds across the world, and the reason simply comes down to reassurance and convenience � whenever an issue arises, someone will be available at the other end of the phone to offer a solution. In the UAE, many expatriates from around the world, particularly from mature, developed markets, expect their units to be managed. However, as the UAE property market still reaches an optimum level of maturity, many residential and commercial units are not managed, creating more of a manual, hands-on process for tenants. At Better Homes, we encourage landlords to benefit from property management services, allowing a more efficient and professional procedure both for the tenant and for the property owner. Tenants prefer managed units for convenience purposes. If something goes wrong; a leak, your air conditioning breaks down, the electricity doesn't work, or similar, urgent issues arise, a tenant can make a call to a central number and a relevant party will be sent to provide a solution to any problem, making a tenant's life easier. We see the percentage of managed units rising quite significantly over the next two years, as customer service becomes more competitive and all property standards rise. Better Homes currently manages over 4,500 units, consisting of residential and commercial buildings and single units across the UAE. If you are a property owner and you are interested in having your unit managed, call us on +971 600 52 2212. The fantastic villas on offer at Mina Al Arab. Talk me through... MINA AL ARAB Other finishing touches include classy lighting and a marble staircase that's sure to impress. Will I be able to get around the area easily? Absolutely. The development is landscaped, which means residents can cycle around on special bike pathways. Or, if you prefer to go by foot, you can stroll along a pedestrianised area called Oasis Walk. Are there many leisure facilities on offer? There is an array of shops and restaurants in the Al Hamara Mall, a five minute drive away. There are also plans to provide dining and shopping spots in the community itself in the future. At present in Mina Al Arab there is a private beach, large swimming pool, tennis court and a children's pool and play area, all of which can be used by residents. What's more, when the resort is fully completed there will be a harbour, water park, four hotels (Millenium, Hilton, Rotana and Intercontinental), a 120-acre theme park and a fitness centre. What is Mina Al Arab? It's a custom-made resort located in Ras Al Khaimah and it's been designed to give residents an exquisite lifestyle. Thanks to the Emirates Road, it is also just a 45 minute commute from Dubai. Can you describe the look of the properties? House-hunters will find an array of villas, each with a high-quality finish. They are set on a stretch of private beach, which means you can step through your back garden and on to the shore. What's more, the villas have large balconies on the upper level, which make the perfect spot from which to take in the surrounding views, or entertain guests . What are the interiors like? Each villa has a fully-fitted kitchen, with a cooktop, oven, microwave and dishwasher. There's also an abundance of storage available, with fitted cupboards in high-quality wood.

ASK THE EXPERTS THE PANEL RYAN MAHONEY Is the Managing Director of Better Homes and an expert on all property-related matters. He can answer any question you have on property in general. Q Now we're into the summer, are there any hot offers in the residential leasing market that tenants out there should be considering? LAURA ADAMS Yes, in fact, we have some great options coming up in Downtown Burj Khalifa this summer. Rents have stabilised, but when renewals come around, an increasing amount of competitively-priced stock becomes available. As a result, you can find unbeatable offers, such as 2-bedroom apartments in Burj Views for as little as 85,000 per annum. Given the location of Burj Views (walking distance to Dubai Mall, Souk al Bahar, hotels, restaurants and endless amenities) this can be considered as one of the best deals the market can offer. Historically, residential leasing is most active in Dubai during summer months so, if you are looking to rent, now is the time to secure the most compelling offers. Q As market sentiment improves in the UAE, people will inevitably look for new investment opportunities. What can commercial property offer to investors these days? LOSHINI LAWARENCE This is a good question. We recently stepped outside the Better Commercial realm to try to answer this ourselves. We tried a few options and some promotional offers, then we realised that the most compelling strategy to sell involved selling commercial units with a guaranteed return. How would we make this possible? We teamed up with a selection of landlords and listed their occupied units exclusively with Better Homes. By listing occupied units, depending on the commercial terms of the lease, we are able to offer a great long term investment opportunity to buyers in today's market. Rental returns are guaranteed and logistics and time periods of renting out a commercial property are not a concern with this offer. LAURA ADAMS Is Manager, Residential Sales & Leasing. She can answer any questions you may have if you're thinking of where to move to next. PORUSH JHUNJHUNWALA Is Head of Commercial Leasing and has his fingers firmly on the pulse of of the commercial property market.

THE LAKES After leaving London behind for warmer climes, Sophia Morling tells Laura Binder why, one month on, The Lakes is proving the ideal spot for family life with her husband Rupert and their son, Teddy. Why did you decide to swap life in the UK for Dubai? My husband was offered a job here with the television network NBC and, given the current situation with the recession in England, we thought it would be an ideal time to move. We were living in Kew Gardens at the time and had never been to Dubai before. He had an interview here and after heading home to think about it, we decided to go for it. It was a great opportunity in a new country. So, why move to The Lakes? The thing that attracted me to The Lakes was the fact that it's very green. Coming from a green part of London I love that there are places here to walk around with a new baby. There's also a health and fitness club for the local community, Hayaa!, so wherever your `Coming from a green part of London, I love that there are places here to walk around with a new baby' villa is you can walk to and from it, rather than having to travel everywhere by taxi, as you do eleswhere in the city. It's a real familyfriendly area. What else is there for mums like you? At Hayaa! there are lots of classes for residents to use, like baby swimming lessons, boogey babies � a baby music class � and `buggy fit', a fitness class for mums. There's also a local supermarket which has pretty much everything, including the same brand of baby milk that Teddy drank in the UK. We hear it's great for sporting fanatics too, what are the facilities like? The villas are situated between two golf courses (The Montgomerie at Emirates Hills and Emirates Golf Club) but I can't understand who can play golf in this heat! Rupert is yet to take advantage of it. We are regular pool-goers though � there is a swimming pool just a few feet away from the back of our garden which is really nice and quiet so we all swim most mornings. What kind of people typically live in the area? It's definitely mostly families, there aren't really any young couples. There's a real mix of nationalities too. For example, our neighbours are a husband and wife from Glasgow and South Africa, whereas there are local Emiratis on the other side. More listings at bhomes.com 16 HOME TRUTHS Left: The street in The Lakes where the Morlings live. Far left and below: Inside the Morling's family villa. You moved into an unfurnished villa, were you happy with the overall finish? Yes, it's really nice with plain cream walls and tiled floors. It was completely redecorated and cleaned before we actually moved in. It was even cleaned twice as the company knew that our son Teddy was crawling. It would be nice if the main bedroom had bigger closet space for all of my clothes though! As you had a blank canvas to decorate, how did you go about furnishing it? Rupert and I shipped all of our furniture over from the UK. Everything apart from a coffee table and a sideboard, which we bought from Pinky's in Dubai, and a dining table and chairs and four-poster bed, which we found in Marina. Interiors I like the fact that the villas are plain as it allows you to put your own stamp on things. Were there any essential items that the villa didn't include when you moved in? There were no white goods at all so newcomers will have to buy it all, such as July 2010 `I like the fact that the villas are plain as it allows you to put your own stamp on things' an oven, fridge and kettle. It is probably one of the biggest expenses. I just went to Carrefour, which I would recommend as they do really quick deliveries � it all arrived in one day. Do you have any other shopping tips? The One, Marina Interiors and Pinky's would be my pick of shops. I like their furniture as they have a lot of wood, which is all solid and well-made, with a traditional look. My big tip for newcomers is to look out for open house sales. This is where residents who are leaving Dubai sell their household goods. They tend to be on a Friday or Saturday and are advertised on Dubizzle and the local community boards in supermarkets. You'll find it all there � from garden furniture and dining room tables to kettles and chairs and everything in between. All in all, what would you say is the best thing about living in The Lakes? It has to be the facilities and the fact that it's all pedestrianised here. Because we're living in such a hot climate, and children need fresh air, the Hayya! Club at The Lakes means that I can take a walk knowing there is a destination not too far away where I can stop off for a drink, or to feed Teddy. The basic services are also fantastic. People deliver water to you so you don't have to go out and buy it, and you can have your food groceries delivered too. We also have a gardener, which I love. What are you most looking forward to about home life in The Lakes? I love that there is so much space here. Although I think rental prices in Dubai are on the high side, you just can't get the same kind of space in London where places are much smaller. Teddy is crawling now and we were previously living in a cottage, so this is such a perfect time, I can already see that Teddy is thriving, and it's great that he now has room to climb all over the place! 18 HOME TRUTHS DISTRICTS AND DEVELOPMENTS To help you target your property search as effectively as possible, we've split the city into 15 distinct districts (see p20 for map showing exactly how we've divided it up). hotels.

Sharjah - resilient property market SHARJAH GOING STRONG Throughout 2009, the recession affected the real estate market in all areas of the UAE, but some argue the slowest areas of recovery can be found in freehold areas of the Northern Emirates, including a selection of off-plan projects in Ajman and Ras al Khamiah. However, the leasing market in Sharjah is still strong, and residential areas with Sharjah are proving to be very popular for long term tenants.

The high-rise is one of Sharjah's architectural landmarks, set adjacent to the emirate's most exclusive recreational development, Al Qasba. The heights of Al Ghazal offer unmatched panoramas across the Al Khan Lagoon and Arabian Gulf. Thankfully, with a location directly on Al Khan Lagoon these views do not come at the cost of convenience. Moving from the exterior to the interior, Al Ghazal Tower is powered by an understated elegance. The main entrance floors are decorated with luxurious marble and its walls are lined with Burmese teak. The marble and wood motif continues throughout the corridors and common areas of Al Ghazal, guiding residents pleasingly to the four high speed Mitsubishi lifts. Inside the flats one enjoys an air of sophistication, space and comfort. High-quality ceramic granite flooring is standard throughout all living spaces, while the main doors are built of solid wood. Villeroy and Boch, Grohe, and MDF brands provide elegant functionality and a central gas system restates the tower's integrated design. A free health club awaits residents with state of the art equipment, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, while the tower's heat and sound-proof walls insulate it from the outside world. As arguably the finest tower in Sharjah, Al Ghazal is a treasure to its residents. To arrange a viewing, please give us a call on 600 52 2212. No catch here!

From peak levels, several communities have fallen in rental prices by 55-65%. Among these victims, International City has fallen over 50% (current prices are around AED 40 psf), Deira and Garhoud have fallen 55% (priced now at AED 80-90 psf) and Dubai Silicon Oasis has fallen 65% (now around AED 60 psf). Those areas which have been most resilient to the declines are Trade Centre, Jumeirah, and Mirdif, having fallen by only 15-20% from their peaks in 2008. Trade Centre is currently priced at AED 180-210 psf, Jumeirah between AED 160-200 psf, and Mirdif between AED 180-210 psf. Over 20 years of local market wisdom and industry prowess. The most expansive portfolio of commercial property for sale or lease in the UAE. More dedicated commercial consultants than any firm in the region.

It's a perfect space away from the rest of the house and when my friends come round with their children we all hang out here. I love the `shabby chic' look, so this room has an eclectic mix of bits and pieces. Most of the items are from the UK, such as the picture, which is an antique from Chiswick. Cath Kidston is great for this look so the bedding is by her and the quirky one-off items, like the foot-shaped table, is from Spitalfield's Market in London. As Rupert is quite patriotic I wanted to add a British touch too, with the Union Jack cushion. There are lots of toys in here for Teddy to occupy himself with. The fun number hopscotch is from the Early Learning Centre in Dubai. I think these stripy curtains work well with the room's other colours too � shoppers can find them in Festival City's Ikea.

Plus, its hardback cover makes it a great book for that coffee table... Macho Mix TIPS FROM THE TOP Q I want to give my living room a revamp without spending a fortune on new furniture. Do you have any suggestions for what I can do? THE One ACHIEVE THIS LOOK If slick and eclectic are words that tick your style check list, this season's macho play on the `modern rustique' trend could be the one for you. Keep things simple with a monochrome base, and then bring it to life with one bold accent colour, such as hot red. Mix urban accessories with natural pieces � think metal and glass against wood and leather � and you'll have a recipe for success. Chunky wooden furniture will sort the men from the boys but, if you want to take it all down a notch, soften the room by adding a fluffy rug, or contrast angular furniture with rounder pieces. Now all you need to guarantee a manly mood is an all-out entertainment system. A By adding some key accessories you can give the space a new look without having to invest in new furniture. Cushions of varying shapes are an easy way to dress up a room. You could also add a pop of colour with simple items like a blanket, throw, vase or piece of art. Paintings and prints have become all the rage and this is one way to make a plain wall look interesting. Invest in one great piece and you'll have an eye-catching look that's also economical. Make the most of your windows too. Add a new pair of curtains to brighten up a tired look or add tassels to existing ones for a royal feel. Lighting can change the entire dynamic of a room so consider adding a lamp by your sofa, or go for a statement chandelier - just one in the centre can look truly impressive. Finally, if you have a very modern space, soften the look by placing small and large potted plants inside. Saji Sajikumar, Bois & Chiffons Try patterned wallpaper for a fresh and funky look Vintage Chic FARNIENTE SOFA THE One AED 9,995 ACHIEVE THIS LOOK This oh-so-chic room combines blue hues with pretty patterned details that's just perfect for those who want to add a vintage flavour to their modern Dubai home. Forget meticulously coordinating every item, the key to this look is mixing and matching. Keep colours bright and breezy and combine large and delicate floral patterns, or look to dots and stripes for a playful edge. Think old-fashioned garden parties and you'll have an eyecatching look that's made for afternoon tea and cosy nights in... PEACOCK LOUNGE CHAIR Natuzzi Price on request BOH�ME THE GREEN ROOM If you'd like to make your living room as environmentally sound as possible without compromising on style, try a wallpaper from ECO Bor�stapeter. This Swedish firm specialises in products that have the lowest possible impact on the environment, a philosophy that extends to its wall coverings which are fashioned from water-based dyes and adhesives. What's more, the paper itself comes from mills that operate a replanting programme and can be recycled when it's time to strip your walls for a fresh look. www.ecobt.se Neutral Elegance For a quirky touch, bring pop legends into your pad with this AM Beatles Chair from Andrew Martin Need a little light in your life? Brighten up your room with this colourful Lyon table light from Home Centre Bois & Chiffon ACHIEVE THIS LOOK If you're not one for bold and brash colours, this living room's cool hues could create just the vibe you're after. Keep walls subtle and chic with a matte grey shade and dress the rest with touches of taupe and duck egg blue � the result of which is an elegant space that's ideal for relaxing in when the day is done. The neutral tones will lend themselves well to change if you're something of a furniture collector. Alternatively, keep things simple with a few key wooden pieces and create a classic finish that will stand the test of time. Going for Bold Lounge in style on this cool Metropolis three-seater sofa from Natuzzi Basic Interiors ACHIEVE THIS LOOK If you want to make a statement, why not give burnt orange a bash? Go all out with orange walls, then par the rest of the room down to avoid orange-overload. Black accessories will cut a striking dash but, if that doesn't tickle your fancy, try a silver shade of grey instead � seen here. Stainless steel finishes will tie in well with such a scheme, while wooden floors and doors can work in unity with its warmer orange tones. Alternatively, swap wood fixtures for those with a polished or shiny finish and conjure up an almost futuristic feel. More listings at bhomes.com Found your perfect property? Contact us on +971 600 52 2212 63 SIX OF THE BEST TRIPLE VISION FOR BEST REFIXTU S HOBE P This month we're all talking about the arrival of cutting-edge televisions to the Middle East market. Set to become a must-have item for any home, don your glasses and prepare for 3D TVs. Here's our pick of the bunch... 1 Panasonic, HD 3D VIERA Panasonic's slick plasma offers a full 50 inches of 3D viewing pleasure. Expect features like cross-talk reduction, enhanced luminance and crisp pictures that will have you feeling like you're in the local cinema. We love the cool 3D eyewear that comes as part of the package � very futuristic � and the TV's bronze metallic frame will keep your living room looking slick. Those of you worried about bulky fixtures can breathe a sigh of relief with Samsung's latest offering: despite this model's 46 to 55 inch screen size, it's said to be as easy to hang as a picture, thanks to an ultra-slim form and lightweight mounting system. Once it's taken pride of place, take advantage of extras like internet TV and stream content from your PC to its Blu-ray player. 2 Samsung, 3D LED C8000 3 Sony, Bravia LCD Super sleek is the best way to describe the look of Sony's hot new design. And, when it comes to quality, the NX500 series will not disappoint either. Its high definition recording is said to create true-to-life tones, vibrant images and fine detail that will `make you feel like you're in the picture'. Coupled with the fact that you can choose a screen from 32 to 55 inches in size, that's quite an experience... TO ONE H WATC As part of their 3D package, Philips has launched a `3D TV kit', complete with a wireless transmitter and two sets of glasses., so you don't have to fight over the only set. It will set you backAED 1,500 but make sure you don't come unstuck � the kits are only compatible with Philips 9000 and 8000 LCD TV series. With screens reaching up to 58 inches in size, why go to the cinema? 4 Philips, 9000 / 8000 LED TV 5 Toshiba, Cell Regza 55X1 Toshiba aim to launch its 3D model in the Middle East between October 2010, and March 2011. Be sure to keep an eye out for this cool, black model, the flagship of the brand's line-up. Also look out for its `time shift machine', which is capable of recording up to 26 hours of programmes simultaneously, so you can catch up on anything you've missed. Nights in will never be the same again... 6 LG, LX9500 LG's contribution to the world of 3D is something of an award-winner, scooping the Reddot Design Award 2010 for its INFINIA product. In practical terms, you can expect a narrow TV � 22.3mm in depth and a 16mm narrow bezel, to be precise � that designenthusiasts will love. Clarity, brightness and spot control all come as standard, plus invisible speakers for a cool finishing touch. More listings at bhomes.com Found your perfect property? Contact us on +971 600 52 2212 65 ASK THE EXPERTS INTERIORS ADVICE Send us your questions to email@example.com and we'll find an interiors guru to answer them... As an expat living in Dubai, I'd like to add a touch of Arabia to my home. Can you make you have any suggestions on how I can achieve the look? AARTI JAGTIANI, HOME CENTRE Adding an Arabian flavour to your home can be tricky to pull off, as you need to be careful not to over do the look. However, if done right, it is certainly possible to create an elegant Arabic influence. This style is all about evoking Arab heritage and tradition, so look at selecting some antique pieces. For instance, try adding rustic metal lamps � a great way to create the ambience present in many Arab households. In terms of colours, you may want to go for deep shades, such as maroon or tyrian purple hues, and add hints of gold. For a more subtle feel, there are a few simple items which can work wonders in any room. I would recommend Q Q adding an Arabic-inspired vase to your dining room for a simple way to reflect the culture at home. If you're on a budget, shop around for classic yet affordable pieces. I want to ensure that my living room is colourful but tasteful. Which shades work best together and which combinations should I avoid? DUYGY KURU, BASIC INTERIORS Colour not only feeds the eye but has both physiological and psychological components. Choosing the perfect colour combinations is always a difficult task, even for the most experienced designers, especially if you are selecting tones for your living room, where you tend to spend most of your time at home. Remember, though, that playing around with colour should also be fun, so don't feel tied down to a limited palette of hues.Warm colours `Earthy reds, warm plums, and rusty golds will work beautifully in living rooms' tend to make people feel good and also look great. Earthy reds, warm plums, and rusty golds will work beautifully in living rooms. In contrast, cool colours tend to make people feel calm and restful. White, light grey and indigo all work well together and can help rooms to evoke a relaxing feel. Beech, brown, and golden colours will warm up the look of your room and give it a classic look. But, I would suggest you avoid combinations of green and blue, or red with orange. Think carefully about what you want to accomplish. If you are not sure that you can match colours yourself, it's always best to bring in a colour consultant or a designer for their expert advice.
