Sultan bin Ali Al Owais Real Estate shares ‘smart-move’ for tenants
The plan reduces move-in costs through flexible payment plans, 0% commission, and move-in before security deposit payment
UAE-based Sultan bin Ali Al Owais Real Estate has introduced a 90-day ‘Smart-Move’ campaign for new tenants across its 3000+ properties in the UAE to ease the move-in process and aid move-in overheads, through flexible rent payment plans, zero percent commission, and move-in before the payment of security deposit.
Recent reports indicate a visible increase in relocation amongst tenants across the UAE. The movement includes families moving to larger units and even cross-emirate movement due to reduced rents. However, even with lower rents, moving houses can be an expensive proposition given add-on costs such as commissions, deposits, and advance rents.
Sultan bin Ali Al Owais Real Estate specifically develops properties for rent; owns and manages a portfolio of over 3,000 properties across the UAE; and is known for its emphasis on its long-term rental ethos and retention of residential tenants exceeding 20 years.
Commenting on the ‘smart-move’ campaign, the chief executive officer of Sultan Bin Ali al Owais Real Estate, Haleema Al Owais, said: “Moving houses can be a daunting task, even if we leave out the financial outlay involved, which can be filled with unaccounted for charges like commissions and deposits.
“While the wellbeing of an entire sector is dependent on some of these fees, organisations need to assume a responsible stance during such challenging times. Smart-move is our small contribution to ensure the industry’s buoyancy and support for individual circumstances.”
During 2020 and due to the limitations that the pandemic has brought about, homes have also turned into places of work and study. The weeks during the lockdown saw a visible increase in searches for more accessible locations, large apartments with balconies, as well as villas and townhouses with outside space such as gardens, balconies, and pools.
