How do you know what a Dubai property is really like to live in?
Do you wish you knew more about your Dubai property before you moved in?
You know the little things like what the noise levels were like in the garden at tea time, how well the property was maintained (you move in and all your water heaters needs replacing), how responsive the landlord is to repairs (if you’re renting) and what exactly is available in your local area from someone who’s actually tried all the amenities out? Great dining facilities translate to OK if you’re desperate for a takeaway but lots of good coffee shops!

We started Flat Reviews with the vision of creating a free portal that provides easy access to first-hand information on all the communities in Dubai. We are collecting reviews of tenants/owners on the specific features of each residential building and community in Dubai. By sharing these personal reviews, we hope that the residents of the city will have an easier time looking for their ideal homes.
DoinDubai reviewed this new website testing it out before honestly telling you, my readers, what it’s like. It is a bright clean site easily navigated and responds quickly. You don’t need to login to read the reviews. If you need help deciding where to start your search for a new home I suggest a look at the Area Guide ; you can click on 5 points that show the amenities or other elements that are important to you and your family.
It appears that real residents enter their reviews of what it’s like to live in their flat or villa. If I was moving again I would definitely check out this very new website FlatReviews wholly owned by a European couple who learnt the hard way. They’ve lived in Dubai for a few years and have had to move (like many people) several times. As many of us learn, the real living experience of living in any area only reveals itself after we have moved in. These experiences eventually led the couple to set up www.FlatReviews.com It’s a bit like Trip Advisor for Dubai properties.
How did you find out about your Dubai property? How did you first see your villa or apartment? Was it with an estate agent? Did you drive around the area? Or maybe you asked friends? Maybe you did all of the above. I would suggest you include this new website as a resource the next time you plan to move.
FlatReviews is a genuine website supported by real reviewers, covering many areas.
It’s a very comprehensive site that covers a range of areas in Dubai; I searched for reviews of accommodation from the Marina to Muhaisnah and got details of specific buildings with many of their good and bad points. International City was well documented and so was the Arabian Ranches and Bur Dubai. They don’t as yet have reviews on every single type of accommodation but they are coming in steadily.
It’s only because I know the Arabian Ranches very well that despite house types being exactly the same, I know there is more noise at certain times of the day in some villages as opposed to others, this is the type of thing that would be very useful to know when putting in an offer to either rent or buy a Dubai property.
Specific information from building to building and area to area
From Palmera to the Palm Jumeirah real people rate the properties they are staying in based on factors like security, public transport, pet friendliness and finishing of building work in villas. There is a rough guide to the price of renting in the areas but obviously this has to be checked with what is available at the time you are looking. At the moment you can use the website for free and browse all their reviews. Unlike Trip Advisor you cannot ask the reviewer a specific question but this may come later in the site’s development.

January 2015 This competition has now closed, but it seems they do run similar competitions from time to time.
I put a review of our Dubai property up on the website to check it worked, it was easy but they do need your email address. The incentive at the moment is the chance to win an iphone 6! So what have you got to lose? Do say you heard about them from Monica at DoinDubai.com
If you need to know anything about the Arabian Ranches I will happily answer you honestly, just leave your questions in the comment box below. Please share the article if you think it would be useful to someone you know.
