^^^^ This. The days of an unqualified person coming to Dubai and making a years salary in a few months in property are long, long gone. Let a alone a qualified person coming in and cleaning up.
You'll graft and slog and you'll go up the wall while enduring Dubai's learning curve which can take anything from 6 months to a year. At the end of it all, will you be any better off? I can't predict that but given the choice whether to live in London or Dubai, London wins hands down. Weather isn't everything.
