TECOM - renters' guide

What to expect, where to look and how much you should pay

Previously thought of as one of the city’s less glamorous neighbourhoods, TECOM has become popular among Dubaians priced out of The Greens, but keen to stay on in the area. With new shops opening all the time, several European-themed pubs, no congestion issues and plenty of parking, it’s one of the city’s most hassle-free places to live – if you can put up with the noisy construction from dawn.

Average current asking price:
Studio apartment:
One-bed: Dhs43-100,000
Two-bed: Dhs59-120,000
