Dubailand

 Posted in Dubai forum 

Dear all,
I will be moving to Dubai in 2 months to work for a company based in Sharjah.
I am looking to rent an apartment in Dubai and been reccomended areas like the Greens and Dubai Marina. My budget is 60-80K Max.
However, browsing through the net I found great villas in Dubai Land for just 70K with 2 bedrooms , thats the same price I would pay for a 1-bedroom in the Greens. I am hesitant to make this decision to rent in Dubai Land and would appreciate any feedback, shared experiences, you might have about Dubai Land and possible disadvantages living htere.
Regards

Camille

    Hi Camile

    Dubai is a beautiful place and i congratulate you on your move. The prices really depend on many factors, You can even find between 40-60K very easily, So, it really depends on where the house is located, the land it is located on....etc.

    If you need more assistance or have any questions regarding the U.A.E. or Dubai do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks for your replies. Appreciated.
    I am more or less set to rent a villa in DubaiLand. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this area. For example: How far from Dubai? Is it practical to drive everyday from DubaiLand to sharjah to my office? Or shall I look at other places?

    What other disadvantages maybe in living in DubaiLand... Will I be isolated from social life?

    Thanks again to all

    Very intelligent questions, Yes, Dubailand is a wonderful place and it is more than logical as you will see to drive, its around 10-20 drive to both directions depending on traffic as highways and roads are very well and can take lots of traffic at a time.

    By the way i lived in Lugano for awhile.

    So, what line of business are you in? Why the move to Dubai?

    Hi Camille,

    I have a friend who has just rented a four bedroom villa in Dubailand and she thinks it's great out there. My only advice would be that Dubailand is not yet completed so expect a bit of construction work/noise. As long as you have a car and you are prepared for a slightly longer drive to work than if you lived in Sharjah (!) then I am sure you will be happy in your new home :)

    Rents are very good in Dubai at the moment so now is the time to take advantage of the bargains that are popping up here.

    If you need help with a moving company then let me know - I run a company called easytruck which moves people all over the UAE and internationally.

    Thanks,
    Chris
