With the challenging situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, many plans for moving homes have come to a standstill and have been delayed due to the social distancing orders set by the UAE Government. With the expat market being largely rentals, your lease may up for renewal soon, so you may be looking to upgrade or even downsize. Given the circumstances, operating virtually is becoming a necessity, so to help any situation, Bayut is leading the property search market with a complete suite of super helpful virtual tools to help you find your next perfect home in the UAE, all from the comfort of your own sofa!
Here are five easy steps on how you can find your next home using Bayut’s virtual property search tools:
STEP 1: VISIT BAYUT.COM
Bayut’s website is really easy to use, and it provides free access to thousands of properties for sale and rent across the UAE.
As the fastest property portal in the market, the intuitive search tool allows you to search by desired location, property type and other preferences, giving you an instant list of all the available properties in your area of interest, all of which are updated in real-time when you add more filters.
STEP 2: EXPLORE THE LOCATION WITH BAYUT’S INTERACTIVE MAP VIEW
You already have an area in mind you’d like to live in, so the next important thing you need to know is how far these properties are from any schools, work, shops, entertainment and any other necessities. This is where Bayut’s interactive Map View solution comes into play.
With the help of Map View, you can easily visualise the exact location of a property on an interactive map. Using this you get an accurate idea of what’s nearby and even compare the location of different properties in the area to discover the perfect home that matches your needs!
STEP 3: CHECK THE AVAILABILITY OF A PROPERTY WITH TRUCHECK™
One of the difficulties with looking for a property in the UAE is figuring out if a listed property, is actually still available on the market. TruCheck™ is an unique authentication solution that completely eliminates this frustration. Any listing with a TruCheck™ badge allows you to know if a property is available in the market in real-time, without having to contact the agent. In order for the TruCheck™ badge to appear on a listing, the agent has to have uploaded verified documents, physically visited the property and photographed it and submitted it for approval. This information then undergoes extensive quality checks by the Bayut team. Once the information is approved, only then does the listing get the TruCheck™ badge for a limited time.
STEP 4: DISCOVER MORE ABOUT THE PROPERTY ON THE DETAILED LISTINGS
Now you know the area you want to live and you have a shortlist of potential homes, the next step is to find out everything the property has to offer!
Bayut’s property listings feature sophisticated summaries of all the details you want to know including the price, area, features and amenities, as well as locations nearby. Plenty of high quality photographs and videos allow you get a better perspective of the properties.
STEP 5: VISUALISE THE LAYOUT OF THE PROPERTY WITH 2D & 3D FLOOR PLANS
Knowing the layout of a property is one of the most important factors when deciding on a new home. Some will say it is impossible to decide on a property without actually seeing it, but Bayut has transformed this into a reality!
Bayut has over 45,000, standardised 2D and 3D floor plans for UAE properties which can be used to view a birds-eye view of a property which helps with knowing the scale and positioning of the rooms, without having to physically visit the property. You can also access three-dimensional visual maps of these floor plans, using 3D Live to get an immersive experience of the configuration of a property. You can view the 3D floor plans from various angles by simply tapping, dragging, rotating or zooming into the floor plan, depending on your device. This enables you to get a more robust and in-depth perspective on the layout and determine whether it suits your requirements. Bayut 3D Live floor plans will soon be available across all their floor plans. If you’d like to experience this immersive live feature, check out the 3D floor plans for villas in Jumeriah Park.
