UAE-based Sultan bin Ali Al Owais Real Estate is offering new tenants across its 3000+ properties in the country flexible rent payment plans and zero percent commission in addition to helping them move in before the payment of any security deposit.

The 90-day campaign ‘Smart – Move’ is expected to reduce the process and move-in overheads for the tenants and comes amid recent reports indicating a visible increase in relocation amongst tenants across the UAE.

Families are 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 if you add on costs like commissions, deposits and advance rentals said a top company official.

CEO Haleema Al Owais remarked, “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, organizations need to assume a responsible stance during such challenging times,” CEO stated.

“Smart-Move is our small contribution to ensure the industry’s buoyancy and support individual circumstances,” observed Al Owais.

During the course of this year and the limitations that the pandemic has brought about, homes have turned into a place to also work from, study and relax in. Tenants are now seeking homes that are suitable for all purposes and everyone occupying it, she stated.

The weeks during the lockdown saw a visible increase in searches for more accessible locations, large apartments with balconies and villas and townhouses with outside space such as gardens and balconies and pools, she added.
