In certain places you should be able to find a 2 bed townhouse for 100-120K per annum, as your colleague mentioned it would be 'out of town'. Have a read through this thread:

http://www.expatforum.com/expats/dub...ent-dubai.html (later pages are more current on rental levels)

And also have a look through Dubai Real Estate, Dubai Property, Abu Dhabi Properties For Sale - propertyfinder.ae and Property Real Estate for Sale and Rent. Jobs in the Middle East and North Africa , Free Classifieds in with Dubizzle.com to get an idea of rents and areas.

No. Unfortunately, the only way you could do housing would be to share with multiple people to a room and even after that it would be really, really basic living.

Plenty for you to live on, and save a few bucks... your package I would reckon to be towards the upper end of what I am aware people in your line of work and age make, my opinion - its a good offer...

Default Nothing included !!

Hi,

I have a proposal of 60.000 Dirham per month.

I have to pay everything from that.

It's a contract for a year which may be converted to a permanent contract after the year.

I have a wife and three children below 12. Education is important so they should attend a good school.

I think I will need two cars (nothing fancy) and a house with a garden and if possible a pool. The garden should fit a trampoline :-).

Will I be able to have a comfortable life with that i.e. go out for dinner once a week, 1-2 holidays a year.

Many thanks for your feedback.

Tussengast.

go for a year alone and if you get extended ask for school and housing? uprooting your whole family for a years contract sounds rough
