What to consider when choosing an area as a place to live?

Arjan is a promising area of Dubai with residential and commercial real estate. A wide range of housing is available here: apartments, townhouses, and villas. Near residential complexes, there is the necessary infrastructure.

Arjan offers a peaceful and serene life, away from the hustle and bustle of the central part of Dubai. Indeed, Arabian Ranches is a suitable choice for those who appreciate tranquility and seek to raise their children in an atmosphere of stability and predictability.

The district is very well planned: there are many open spaces, pedestrian alleys and green areas on the territory. If the environmental component is an important value, it is worth paying attention to this community.

The Arjan community has good transport accessibility, but it is important to be prepared for possible traffic jams during rush hours. This is important for those who plan to live in Arjan and commute to work in the center of the emirate. The public transport system is still presented rather modestly but continues to expand.

Young families and aspiring professionals often pay attention to Arjan. The main reason is that the properties in this district are diverse and relatively inexpensive for both buying and renting.
