    I need some help!! I am looking at purchsing a holiday home in dubai. Something I can rent out and use myself for a few holidays a year.

    Idealy after a 1 bdroom apt, but the location is everything. I want something near to bars / resturaunts etc. I also want somewhere with a nice pool for relaxation on holiday. this will be for people on vacation.

    I have no idea where is best. I have baffled myself with so much contravining information on the internet over the last month that i really do not know where is good and where is not.

    If someone could offer me some advice i would be very gratefull

    Many Thanks

    IMHO - JBR - It's a 100% banker!

    Downtown dubai e.g. Marina, JBR, JLT are best for you. near to beach. easy to move..easy to rent appt there.. markets.. pubs and all arn't that far..

    whats your budget anyways...?

    thanks for your response. this is one option i have actually considered, and woud love to get some more info from you.

    Please e-mail me on Jules1977(at)sky(dot)com

    JBR is also an area that i have looked at, the only downside is that it looks way overcrouded.

    My budget is about 1 Million AED.

    I am not sure about JBR, it seems a bit high rise and overcrowded.

    The marina is one option, and i ave not looked at JLT yet.

    1 million - I am not sure about prices these days as I speculate off plan on villas, whole floors of apartments and offices, but I can't imagine you would get into JBR for 1 million. A friend of mine said the Greens was 1.3 for a 1 bedder now. JBR will always have speace because for many people it is just a vacation home and so a lot of it will stay empty for most of the year. Increase your budget and buy there - it's like 1 massive hotel wth shops, bars and restaurants.

    1 million AED is only an esimate. 1.3 to 1.5 is no problem for the right place.

    does anyone know any good contacts for purchasing through

    Thats a great price - only the completion date is misleading and based on the contract, not on reality.
  12. Aryan Khan

    Aryan Khan Guest

    Yeah consider the completion date as Jan 09.... but yes price is gud..

    Consider nothing until you have seen the site with your own eyes. Price is excellent, but I'm sure that this one is already a year late, if not more. The only people you can trust is the forum users on Skyscraper City - Like Imre. He's a top dog and will tell u the best date that it will be open.

    Google it....its a forum where they take photos and discuss construction.

    Don't wait until the research on the web, and buy soon. i am not a broker and don't sell real estate.

    Anyone know a good place to start looking for a 1 bedroom in JBR or the Marina - It's for my mum so has to be low down. I have 200K - am I dreaming or is this possible?
