So technically we’re a little late on this but MyBayut, our UAE real estate blog, turns one this year!
Can you believe it’s been a year of us bringing you the best in UAE property trends, lifestyle, and tips? One whole year of blog posts about everything under the Emirati sun, from beautiful homes in the UAE to latest real estate news, updates and trends. And you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun. On our first anniversary of MyBayut, we're happy to say that’s been incredibly true for us!
Where it All Began (& Why)
We launched MyBayut with aspirations to inform, inspire and guide you through not just real estate content, but all the things that affect our users on a day-to-day basis. And we've said as much in our very first post back in 2017.
Whether you are planning to buy a home in the UAE, looking for popular bbq spots in the UAE or simply trying to find places to buy antiques in Dubai, there’s a little bit of everything on MyBayut. However, our first and foremost priority remains to educate our users on the UAE property market. Our detailed analyses of the UAE property market are what we’re known for and this is what we keep at the forefront of all our content.
While we absolutely love bringing you articles that make your life in the UAE easier, we also pride ourselves on being a credible source of information for you when it comes to UAE properties. Thanks to our property portal with thousands of property listings, we have access to data that provides valuable insights. This data is important to our consumers and peers, and through MyBayut we share this guidance for all things related to UAE real estate, and it’s all in one place.
MyBayut at a Glance
Over the year, we have presented luxurious homes from around town with our ‘House of the Week’ segment, along with weekly recaps of what’s happening in the UAE’s real estate scene with ‘Last Week in Real Estate’. Our ‘Trends’ posts have kept you up-to-date with UAE property market fluctuations, while MyBayut’s ‘Tips’ and 'My Home' posts have guided you through everything else. The blog’s ‘Pulse’ posts are what you can browse for fun events and activities happening in the UAE. And finally, posts about our company culture and Bayut's team in ‘Bayut After Hours’ is how you have probably grown to know us a little better. Take a look at what MyBayut does best!
'House of the Week' Series
Every week MyBayut gives you a virtual tour of the best houses on UAE's property market. From beautiful penthouses and lofts that give you stunning views of Burj Khalifa to luxurious mansions that offer a lifestyle upgrade - MyBayut's 'House of the Week' has it all. Whether you're in the market for a new home in the UAE or not, this popular series on the MyBayut blog will give you some serious life goals.
Investing in the UAE property market requires heavy research and due diligence related to all aspects of the real estate market. Who better to advise you on this significant decision than the experts themselves? Bringing you a step closer to making sound real estate investments, our enlightening ‘Expert Advice’ segment gives you reliable property information straight from the industry experts. Covering a new topic every time, our conversations with real estate industry gurus will educate and guide you, equipping you with the right knowledge to make informed real estate investment decisions.
AgenCy & Agent of the Month
Every month Bayut presents its prestigious ‘Agency of the Month’ award to a UAE real estate agency that generates an impressive number of leads through its listings on our property portal. Along with a beautiful glass trophy, our picks for ‘Agency of the Month’ also receive a coffee machine and AED 10,000 worth of complimentary advertising on Bayut.com. In addition, top-performing agents in UAE real estate companies also receive Bayut’s Agent of the Month award. The winner receives a personalised glass trophy, a couple of credits for our ‘House of the Week’ segment and an AED 500 voucher to a fine-dining restaurant.
Bayut After Hours
And now, for the fun part! Over the past year, we took you along on the exciting MyBayut journey and helped you get to know us a little better. Here are some of the best moments from MyBayut’s first year.
The One With All The Football: Bayut Cup '17
It is no secret that football is a sport loved all over the world. So last year, Bayut introduced its own sport's championship to bring UAE real estate agencies together on the football pitch. 24 UAE real estate agencies competed in 30 matches for the Bayut Cup ’17 championship. Leading Dubai real estate broker, Allsopp & Allsopp, took the cup home along with cash prizes and gold medals. We tried staying away from the ‘work hard, play harder’ cliché but we think it sums up Bayut Cup ’17 perfectly!
The One With Bayut’s Secret Santa(s)
Bringing a bit of Christmas cheer to our office, the entire Bayut team came together to celebrate the occasion with the customary Secret Santa tradition. Santa hats, so many gifts and happiness all around was the general vibe in the air. And it has truly been one of our favourite memories from 2017.
The One Where Bayut Moved to a New Office
They say change is always good but, in our case, it has been awesome! Having outgrown our office in Dubai Internet City, we moved to the exciting Dubai Design District (D3) which is now the chic new address of Bayut headquarters. Our bright and airy D3 office not only reflects our creative spirit but also gives the ever-growing Bayut team enough space to thrive and take the business to new levels of success.
This past year has been a beautiful journey of sharing what we know and in exchange learning so much more as we go along. On our first anniversary, we are reminded of our commitment to bring you quality content that entertains, educates and heightens your knowledge of the UAE property market, and that has not faltered one bit. This year, we aim to continue doing just that, with as much determination and zeal as we had on that very first day in January 2017.
