Moving to Dubai in 2006/07: Questions questions questions Jul 05, 2005
1. Finding an apartment.

I'm looking on the internet for apartments and everything thing is soooooooooo freaking high. Then I can't find anything small.
I don't need a "villa" or all that high price crap.
I'm basically looking for a roof, floor, and toilet.
Do you know any cheap apartments (less than $500 per month).

:? Damn, are there no poor people in Dubai????

Good luck trying to find that kind of price in something decent. Beleive me if you don't get something decent in Dubai and spend the money you will sorely be disappointed... Cockroaches, flees, bugs, bad electrical setup, retarded neighbors are just an example of what you will get for cheap...

Decent, I don't even know what that means. LOL.
I already live by crazy people, though I don't have roaches.

Note: In the US i've never paid more than $250 for rent.
I'm cheap and would like to remain cheap. Living around poor people wouldn't phase me because I am poor, lol!

Yemen is a poor non oil producing country on the south western tip of the Arabian peninsula... Its bad there!!

And bro, you have not seen poor like what is considered poor in the Middle East... You cannot live in such squalor I assure you.... What you get for $250 in the states will run you $500 here but it will be a rat and bug infested dump that may collapse on you at any time...

I guess I could pay more in rent.
In Dubai it seems like the going rate of pay in my field is only $1300 :?

If its cheap you want, stay in Sharjah...you should easily be able to find a small apartment for that rate....but of course the trade off is you're gonna have to do a lot of driving/commuting...not that the distance is much, but the traffic is crazy, considering everyone has the same idea ie; stay in Sharjah work in Dubai...when there's no traffic you can get there in 15-30 min, but in rush hour it can take well over an hour....of course now there's Ajman as well, with the new ring road its probably gonna be faster to reach Dubai from there now than from Sharjah...and its way cheaper as well....wouldn't wherever you work provide accomodation as well? I see you're a phlebotomist, thats someone who collects blood right? I think hospitals/clinics etc would put people up, since they have so many with the same conundrum....don't go by the going rates for salaries btw, they can vary based on your nationality...I think an American phlebotomist would get paid exponentially more than say an Indian or a Filipino one...unfair but it does work in your favour here
