Buying/Renting New Place in AD (Abu Dhabi)

Hello Everyone,

Such a welcome change our recent move to the region has been from our home in freezing Calgary!

My husband and I are looking to move from Dubai (Marina area) to Abu Dhabi. The ~4 hour commute, given frequent accidents isn't fun! So thought to reach out and ask for your suggestions on basics such as:

-- what areas we should be exploring: my office's in Muroor, near the Dusit Thani; We’d like to be walking distance from a mosque; Proximity with water’s ideal too!
-- benefits of buying vs. renting - we'd heard buying had added perks for expats, no details on what those are though...
-- who we should be speaking with,

It's just the two of us (no kids) - with frequent entertaining though...

Thank you everyone!
