On the other hand, the older units in secondary locations have had a couple of slow years where the secondary market became more tenant friendly because of the falling prices and rents of Abu Dhabi apartments. Because of the lack of amenities offered by these units, their rents are not likely to increase unless the landlords refurbish or redevelop them. Putting the falling rents of these older units in perspective with the increasing rents of high end apartments in Abu Dhabi, one can see some clear signs of polarisation.
According to the experts at Bayut.com, this polarisation may seem like a bad thing but it was no different in Dubai a while ago. “Dubai witnessed a similar kind of polarisation some fourteen or eighteen months ago,” revealed Abdul Hakim, Marketing Manager at Bayut.com. “If luck favours Abu Dhabi the same way it did Dubai,” he added, “we can see a more uniformity in price hikes for Abu Dhabi apartments for rent as well as sale.”
