Can any one tell me how much is the rent for 1 or 2 BR in Al Barsha?

Look on Dubizzle. You can see listings for different areas of Dubai along with prices.

I found this web site: bayut dot com

It has more nformation on the buildings and locations (well, I've only looked at JLT so far).

Anyone have any experience or comments on that site?

Cheers,

D.

Thanks Mikey, I am going to check out sports city today hopefully. Yeah I've heard its a bit of a construction site, but it is much more suitable for my budget. My biggest issue is that because most of the apartment blocks are brand new, there could be a few issues. Is this something that you've encountered? Is there any way to protect myself from this happening? Thanks, Sam

That is a potential problem with any building to be honest. As a general rule, don't believe anything an agent tells you! Always worth having a chat with the security guards as they generally know what goes on and will be able to tell you if maintenance is always in.

Good luck!

I saw an infographic on a website yesterday which says that Dubai rents are increasing now. A 10% price increase was observed in the first quarter of this year, 2013.

So I have been now in dubai for almost 5 days and I already started to have headaches from this appartment hunting.

I am considering now the springs as it seems that it has more space than other apartments in Jlt and the greens.

Would you recommend the springs for a family with 2 young kids? My budget is 100k-110k maximum.

P.S my work is in the JLT area that is why I am also considering the springs
