Is it time to look into getting a home by a golf course?

BETTER NEWS

CLUB CLASS Golf enthusiasts will be excited this month by the arrival of the Dubai World Championships, after the much-touted Race to Dubai, (dubaiworldchampionship.com, Nov 19-22) at the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. If you’re so fired up by the show that you feel moved to look into course-side properties, flip to p.9 and read an interview with a reader who lives by the fairway at The Views.

PRICE RISE News came out of Colliers International this month that property prices in Dubai have seen a rise of seven per cent in the third quarter of the year – which commentators are suggesting shows an increasing in optimisim in the city’s property market. Villa prices went up by 9 per cent and apartment prices increased by 6 per cent over the period.

PROPERTY PERSPECTIVE Taking stock of the market now that summer’s gone For the last several months, one hot topic of conversation at the nation’s dinner tables has been the effect of the much-predicted summer exodus – how extensive it would be and how many expats would return to the Emirates after Ramadan. While many were quite nervous that a substantial number of individuals would leave the UAE and never come back, both official and anecdotal information has indicated no severe loss in population. In fact, the UAE government still predicts a net population gain year on year. Curiously enough, Better Homes’ highest ever volume of leasing enquiries since launch was in the month of June 2009. And it’s clear on the streets that there hasn’t been a huge fall in population - traffic congestion in Dubai, despite the Metro, still blesses residents with its delays on an almost daily basis.

We have however seen a mild decline in leasing activity in the past couple of weeks, with net enquiries falling slightly in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai markets. There are a couple of likely explanations for this. Primarily, after rental prices dropped substantially in the first half of 2009, many residents decided to upgrade or relocate closer to work and Sharjah residents famously migrated to Dubai en masse. It seems this trend has started to play itself out and residents have started to settle again (thus reducing leasing enquiries). Another explanation is that as the summer exodus expats returned, they secured their tenancies in August and September, leading to a quieter October. With prices throughout Dubai relatively stable over the past few months, we expect calmer markets and greater abilities for tenants to shop around for their ideal home without worrying about price changes.

Talk me through...

EMIRATES HILLS

Emirates Hills – that’s a really exclusive development, right? Yep. Considered the ‘Beverly Hills of Dubai’, Emirates Hills is a gated neighbourhood and has a high end reputation in the city. Where is it? It’s just behind The Lakes and it’s built around the fairways of The Montgomerie Golf Course. We group it together with a series of other key developments – The Greens, The Views (see p9 for our insider’s guide to this neighbourhood) The Lakes, The Meadows, and The Springs in the ‘Emirates Living’ area. It offers easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road, and Dubai Media City, Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach Residence are all just over a convenient flyover at the front of the development. Whose the developer behind Emirates Hills? As with all the other districts in Emirates Living, Emaar is the master developer behind the community. And the Montgomerie 18-

hole Championship course was created by a partnership of golf legend Colin Montgomerie and starchitect Desmond Muirhead. What are the homes like there? Absolutely stunning – fantastically-appointed villas, in a wide range of sizes, and with beautiful views on all sides. Which type of villa should I pick? You might like to choose a Montgomerie Maisonette right by the golf course, or a Montgomerie Villa, which comes with private garden and a lovely rooftop terrace with views over the course – absolutely superb for entertaining guests in the winter months. Or you might like a signature villa, designed by Sir Michael Hopkins.

What sort of lifestyle does Emirates Hills offer? Naturally it’s absolute heaven for golf lovers. But even if you’re not into the sport, you’ll love the club house and spa, and the excellent Nineteen restaurant with its beautiful terrace and outstanding food. There’s a huge amount of greenery too, plus plenty of walkways for pedestrians, and beautiful pools and fitness facilities.

Abu Dhabi - soon to play home to former Dubai commuters?

ASK THE EXPERTS THE PANEL LIZ O’CONNOR Is the Director of Residential Sales & Leasing - if you’re looking for a home to rent she’s the expert for you.

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.

LOSHINI LAWRENCE Is Better Homes’ Operations Manager in Abu Dhabi, and is ready to answer any questions you have about property in the capital.

JANNIE BIDULPH Jannie is a Residential Sales and Leasing Manager with a keen eye for any new trends emerging in the market.

If you have any property questions to ask our crack team of real estate gurus, please send them to experts@hotmediapublishing.com

Q

Do you expect to see a slow, progressive increase in activity in Abu Dhabi due to projects being almost at handover stage throughout the Emirate? And once these are ready, do you think that the commuters from Dubai will decide to make the move to living in Abu Dhabi? LOSHINI LAWRENCE There are a series of residential projects which are set to be handed over in the very near future, providing the emirate with a large amount of new inventory and providing choice for two types of clients. The first type, existing Abu Dhabi residents, will be given the luxury of choice, something they may not have experienced up until now, as available stock and suitable has been almost impossible to find. The second type of clients, the large group of commuters living in Dubai but traveling up to the capital each day, will be given the opportunity to make a permanent residence in Abu Dhabi, with a wide variety of developments to choose from, at an affordable price. We expect to observe a shift of commuters from Dubai residing in Abu Dhabi, once an appropriate level of stock becomes available in the market.

Q

Do you see a sustained demand in lifestyle-related property for both leasing and sales, or have you observed trends of people shifting to more mundane, functional property due to the conditions over 2009? JANNIE BIDDULPH The interesting thing with Dubai is that over the past couple of years, demand drove prices to unrealistic peaks, regardless of a unit’s location or surroundings. Today, prices have settled, and the cost of living within a lifestyle-focused community is a) affordable, and b) does not hold the premiums which you can observe in other parts of the world. For example, you can be situated next to a golf course, and enjoy the lifestyle benefits: the lush greenery, water, trees and general landscaping, and this is available from one-bedroom apartments all the way up to large, imposing villas, without immense price hikes over units which do not offer the same surroundings. There is definitely a sustained demand with lifestyle living, because golf coursefacing and marina / waterfront developments are readily available and come at a reasonable price. If anyone is considering buying or even renting in a lifestyle-focused area, now is the time to do it.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE…

THE VIEWS

Sharon Marett tells us about life with a golf course view...

What originally brought you to Dubai? I was working with Marriott in London and I got promoted to be the Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Dubai. After that I moved to Emaar Hospitality and then, two months ago, I set up my own business with my business partner Mark Jory. It’s an agency called Latitude which does branding and design work for hotels, restaurants et cetera. Where is Latitude based? We chose Building 8 in Media City – it made sense as I didn’t want to have to find a local

sponsor. Our office is very cute, although it’s a bit girly as I bought white furniture with lime green clocks and chairs. We also have offices in London and Vancouver and a worldwide staff of 25, so although we’re small and new, we’re operating as a very established agency already. What made you decide to live in The Views? It’s a great area because from most buildings you can see golf courses or the canal. There’s a lot of greenery so it’s a very relaxing place – it was marketed as being a bit more up-market than the Greens, with nicer

views. In fact it reminds me of Manhattan because you look out of the window and see greenery with a backdrop of skyscrapers – it’s pretty cool. I’ve been here a year now and I actually own an apartment in the building I’m currently living in, but it’s a one bedroom and I want more space so I rent that out and live in a two-bedroom property. So do you play golf? Actually the view from the balcony inspired me and three weeks ago I started taking lessons. It looks so easy but I have since learned that it’s actually very difficult!

10 HOME TRUTHS The views at The Views Bottom right: Sharon at home

Sticking to crazy golf might have been more sensible… What kind of facilities does The Views have? It has a great swimming pool with lots of room for sunbathing, and there’s potential for having an outdoor barbecue. There’s a gym, small meeting facilities and good car parking. Is there much in terms of shops and restaurants? It’s kind of self-sufficient – everything’s within walking distance which is very important to me because I don’t like having to drive all the time. There’s Choithrams, a hairdressers and a nail salon which is very helpful! There’s a nice Lebanese place called Mashawi, and a few good cafés nearby – Caribou, Starbucks, Wagamama – very handy. When you come home from work it’s tempting to just pop over the road for dinner, especially now the weather’s nice. Are there many exercise options locally? The gym is very well equipped although how often I go varies because I’m so busy with work. Then every month or so I’ll go for a little jog! I occasionally go horse riding at Arabian Ranches Golf Course – I actually did a polo course there recently. I wasn’t too November 2009

good at actually making contact with the ball but I enjoyed the horse riding element! Is there a sense of community in The Views? Yes, it’s popular with couples, bachelors and young families. It’s the first time I’ve felt a real sense of community spirit since living in Dubai – I lived in Al Barsha before and I didn’t really know anybody. Because The Views seems quite complete, it’s relaxing and that has an effect on the vibe. I’m very happy here. How’s the traffic? It used to be quite bad but now it’s much better and I’m not really sure why! A big overpass to Media City has been built but it isn’t open yet. Once that’s open it should completely alleviate any traffic issues. Is there anything missing from The Views? It would be great to have a tennis court, plus maybe a community fitness centre like Hayya! The Lakes Club in The Lakes. We could also do with some new restaurants because after a year you pretty much know everywhere, but really the location is so central that it’s easy to jump in a taxi. There’s not much that could improve the area.

“The view reminds me of Manhattan because you look out of the window and see greenery with a backdrop of skyscrapers....” How have you decorated your apartment? My apartment is quite uncluttered, very neutral, because when the weather is warm I want a breezy feel throughout – I don’t really want thick, harsh colours or traditional design. The property is very open-plan which I like – the kitchen overlooks the dining area, which shares a space with the lounge. The balcony runs along the entire front of the living/dining area and I can see it from the kitchen. That view is very special to me because coming from England, I didn’t get views like that or the nice weather!

DISTRICTS AND DEVELOPMENTS

To help you target your property search as effectively as possible, we’ve split the city into 15 distinct districts (see p12 for map showing exactly how we’ve divided it up). MEYDAN DISTRICT Meydan district includes Nad Al Sheba, best known for its racecourse and as the venue of the Dubai World Cup. It’s also home to Meydan City, which when completed will be a mixed use area with a long stretch of waterfront with berths and yachts. The Meydan District also encompasses Al Quoz industrial zone. PALM DEIRA DISTRICT This district is focused exclusively on The Palm Deira, the largest of the three Palm Islands, set to be finished by 2015, and equipped with over 40 separate ‘fronds’, all stocked with homes, malls and marinas. PALM JUMEIRAH DISTRICT The Palm Jumeirah, currently the world’s largest man-made island, is surrounded by a vast breakwater barrier, and kitted out with an artificial reef. Just nearby is The World, 300 island clusters in the shape of the world, and divided into four categories private homes, estate homes, dream resorts, and community islands. WATERFRONT DISTRICT The Waterfront District features Dubai Waterfront and The Palm Jebel Ali. A conglomeration of canals and artificial

islands, Dubai Waterfront is shaped in an arc and will produce a shelter around the Palm. The Palm itself is set to be ringed by luxury homes on stilts alongside six high-tech marinas. JEBEL ALI DISTRICT The Downtown project is set to be one of the few truly pedestrian-centric areas of town, with its own low-emission public transport system, plus entertainment, residential and business zones. JUMEIRAH DISTRICT This coastal residential area is one of the more expensive and exclusive areas in Dubai and is filled with quiet roads of attractive old villas. This district includes areas such as Al Wasl, Badaa, Manara, Safa, Satwa, and Umm Suqeim. DUBAILAND DISTRICT This district is huge. Its principal claim to fame is that it’s home to Dubailand, 3 billion square feet of theme parks, shopping malls and hotels. It also includes City of Arabia, all 20 million square feet of it, which is set to be the main residential and retail centre at the heart of Dubailand. Then there’s Bawadi, a 100 billion dollar project hosting 31 theme-based hotels. And nearby is Falcon City of Wonders, a falcon-shaped city containing life-size replicas

of the Seven Wonders of the World, housing chic apartments and villas. Also here is Dubai Motor City, home to Dubai Autodrome. Then there are some top residential developments including the equestrian-themed desert community Arabian Ranches, the lush and tranquil Green Community and Jumeirah Golf Estates, built around four themed golf courses. Dubai Sports City, meanwhile, is set to be home to residential properties and cricket and tennis academies.

a ‘city’ for international trade which is expected to have more than 230 commercial and residential towers when completed. Also in the district is Dubai International Financial Centre , the world’s newest financial centre. Finally there is Downtown Burj Dubai, a prestigious neighbourhood built around Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest tower and featuring around 30,000 houses, nine hotels, parkland area, 19 residential towers, the Dubai Mall and the Burj Lake.

LAGOONS DISTRICT This district comprises the seven artificiallycreated islands of the Lagoons and Dubai Festival City, a residential, business and entertainment development.

MARINA EMIRATES LIVING DISTRICT At the heart of this district is Dubai Marina, with over 200 towers. Then there’s the gated community of Emirates Hills, with its lush landscaping and world-class Montgomerie golf course. You’ll also find The Meadows, The Lakes, The Greens, and The Springs, all prestigious districts with a range of high quality apartments, malls and community centres. Another standout is Discovery Gardens, a 420,000 square metre development with multi-sized apartments. Jumeirah Islands is a self-contained community of 50 islands with homes in one of four architectural themes, all with their own pools. Jumeirah Park, meanwhile, is a

INTERNATIONAL CITY DISTRICT The multi-countrythemed International City features 10 architectural styles and is made up of 6 main areas: The Central District, Dubai Design Centre, The Dragon Mart, The Residential District, Lakes District, and the Forbidden City. Also in this district is Dubai Academic City, with its universities and housing. DOWNTOWN DISTRICT Business Bay is the regional business capital,

family-orientated community spreading over 370 hectares. It has more than 2,000 villas combined with expansive parks and green spaces. Finishing off the mix are The Dubai Pearl and the freezones of TECOM and Dubai Media City. MIRDIF DISTRICT A small but rapidly growing residential area comprised of Uptown Mirdif, Warqaa, and Khwaneej. Uptown Mirdiff has been designed on the lines of an ancient spa town and promises contoured landscapes filled with stylish townhouses. WORLD CENTRAL DISTRICT This district solely focuses on the projects that make up Dubai World Central, comprising Dubai World Central International Airport, Dubai Industrial City, and Dubai Residential City. DEIRA DISTRICT Areas in the Deira district include Qusais, Umm Ramool, Nadd Shamma, Nahda, Mamzar, and Twar. BUR DUBAI DISTRICT The Bur Dubai district comprises areas such as Karama, Oud Metha, Umm Hurair and Zabeel. It’s also home to Culture Village, a community which aims to incorporate the UAE’s cultural history in the buildings.

AL REEF AWAITS

ABU DHABI

The eagerly anticipated Al Reef Villas development in Abu Dhabi is finally being handed over! Developed by Manazel Real Estate, Al Reef Villas consists of 1,700 villas and apartments spread across a lush greenery and fantastic amenities. Billed as “the first planned UAE community exclusively for the middle-income tier,” this project has been well-received by initial buyers. These villas have four distinct architectural styles, including Mediterranean, Desert, Contemporary, and Arabic. The location is enviable – only 30 minutes from Abu Dhabi Island and close to the international airport. Amenities here encompass retail, commercial, and community needs. Enjoy the upcoming town square with relaxing cafés and dining establishments, and an entire community amidst beautiful tree-lined streets and verdant landscaping. A range of homes are available here, so we recommend you come down and visit Abu Dhabi’s latest offering.

Are your thoughts turning towards the capital? Better Homes has expert agents in Abu Dhabi and is well placed to guide you through the very best properties the city has on offer.

A LOOK AT LEASING

COMMERCIAL Office Retail Industrial Investment

While commercial leasing rates have fallen everywhere in Dubai, some locations have been significantly harder hit than others. 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 180210 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. Office, Retail, Industrial, and Investment Real Estate. Solved.

Trends in July and August are showing rates stabilizing, with very small declines in the range of 1-2% per month in many commercial leasing areas in Dubai.

MY FAVOURITE ROOM

SHARON MARETT The most extravagant purchase was the rug. I looked everywhere for one, thinking it’d be the easiest thing to get, but it ended up being the priciest item in the room – I spent about Dhs9,000 on it. It’s from Natuzzi; it’s very soft and the colours go well with everything else. 2 The couch is from THE One. I really love the chaise longue style and L-shape; I think THE One does very good sofas. 3 I love this lamp – it’s from Artikel. 4 The coffee table is from ID Design. 5 I’ve lived in various countries including Thailand, Indonesia, the UK, Spain, Canada and now Dubai, and for that reason, getting away at least four or five times a year is really important to me – I love travelling, hence the travel book and the globe. 6 I do like keeping plants around the house but generally they don’t last very long! 1

SLICE OF LIFE

Oh crumbs! It’s time to test out the top toasters in town: eyes down, grill-seekers...

1. Russell Hobbs 14307 Crystal Glass Two Slice Toaster

2. De Longhi Metropolis four slice stainless steel toaster

3. Icona Two Slice Stainless Steel Toaster

Yes it has a removable crumb tray. And yes, it has a variable browning control. But the truly intriguing thing about this limited edition number is that it is bedecked with Swarovski crystals. Why, we could not say.

Our favourite new toaster on the block, this four slice beast in fingerprint-rebuffing matt metal finish has an inbuilt ‘self-centring’ widget for making sure your toast gets an even grilling. Lovely stuff.

This self-effacing little toaster doesn’t make any bold claims – unless you consider ‘non-slip feet’ to be be a significant boast. Big ticks for low price, special setting for bagels and for not weighing as much as a fridge.

4. Siemens by Porsche design toaster They’re a smart bunch, those Siemens by Porsche types. In a hyper-crowded market they’ve decided to stand out by creating a toaster that looks like an alien’s briefcase. Top marks for sleek looks.

5. Breville TT68 Blue Ice Toaster What an unfortunate choice of name. Do the people at Breville not have access to Google? Still, the Ice makes up for it with the gimmick of lighting up when you cook bread in it. And the variable width slots means you can toss in everything from pitta to doorstep wedges.

6. Morphy Richards Accents Four Slice Toaster 44038 Cream A comfortingly old fashioned toaster, this – the sort of thing you could imagine Elvis using for his morning slice. The deep toasting chamber and ‘hi lift’ lever for getting out those tricksy English muffins are additional plus points.

ACHIEVE THIS LOOK

Get yourself a real ‘statement’ bed as the centrepiece of your room - this circular number with a high headboard is absolutely perfect. Pick a simple colour scheme - cream, black and light brown work well - and try to match up key elements. A large rug extending out from the base of the bed and matching the colour of the headboard is a great way to ‘tie the room together’. A delicate chandelier and some billowing white curtains help to create the look too, and add a real note of calm and tranquility.

bedding, fabric and cushions - perfect Home Centre

ACHIEVE THIS LOOK

For a comforting and inviting bedroom, it’s all about deep, rich colours and intelligently-placed lighting. This sort of look is particularly well-suited to smaller bedrooms, which lend themselves to a cosy feel. A rich, thick duvet can work wonders, as can some elaborate details check out the lovely curlicues on the mirror door of the built-in closet. A striking above-bed print or painting with a similar type and level of detailing can help to bring the whole look together to perfection. Wool Rug Home Centre AED249

IKEA

ACHIEVE THIS LOOK It can be difficult to draw the line between creating a room that is light, airy and uncluttered and one which feels a bit clinical and empty. One smart thing to do is to keep all the key pieces of furniture simple but to add in little touches of colour around the edges although nothing too overpowering - this lime-coloured throw from Ikea is a perfect example. And instead of going pure white on the linen, try something like this monochrome set with a simple but attractive design. KAJSA BLAD quilt cover and pillowcase IKEA AED49

Q

I want to create a lavish, ‘boudoir’ style look in my bedroom – what are the key accessories and furnishings I need?

The most important thing you need is a big and bold bed with a deep bedding and lots of pillows. You should preferably go for Renaissanceinspired sensual fabrics with a modern touch – try to find that eclectic mixture of faux leopard fur, rich velvet and mirrors. Lighting should be adjustable and the moody, main colour scheme should be in in red, black, white and purple.

How important is lighting in creating the right atmosphere for my dining room? How do I strike the right balance between clinical brightness and over-dimness?

A good light setting is really important to create the right atmosphere and feeling of comfort in the dining room, but functionality as well as flexibility should be considered before making a final choice. Lighting can be used to create various effects, from dramatic and theatrical to warm and cosy. Whatever the desired outcome, the aim is to strike a balance between light and shade, with emphasis placed on complementing the existing design. Good lighting will enhance the look if working in harmony with your dining furniture, textiles and colours. As dark colours absorb the light and pale colours reflect it, remember to keep your wall colour in mind when choosing lighting, as a room with dark walls will require more light. A dimmer switch is a wonderful invention to play with when aiming to strike the right balance between clinical brightness and gloominess …choose to go comfy or flood the room with light if you need something more functional. Alternatively, produce that ‘WOW’ factor by opting for a chic chandelier over the dining table or create pools of light with a couple of delicate pendant lamps hung low for a more intimate effect.

Kiss your assets goodbye?

– Company incorporation and management

Or take steps to protect them. Are you unsure of local inheritance laws? Whatever your nationality, purchasing assets in the UAE through an offshore company can offer significant benefits, such as:

– Trusts and trustees

 A company can own any asset – be it property, shares, even a yacht.

– Succession planning

 Property sales can be transacted simply through a transfer of shares in a company.

– Offshore banking

 Domestic law code and inheritance provisions can be avoided.  A company provides a good legal framework for joint investments.  A company provides added privacy and confidentiality, and can have a local corporate bank account to accept rental returns. With 10 years of experience in Dubai, and 25 offices in various offshore jurisdictions, Sovereign has expert knowledge in all areas of legal asset protection. So don’t let your assets loose, set off on the right track with Sovereign. Contact John D. Hanafin, Managing Director Tel: +971 4 397 6552 Email: dubai@SovereignGroup.com
