AndrewG, You reiterate what Arniegang said on the other thread, about the 45 pc drop in Villa prices, but yo make it sound even worse. Is a lot of the building on stop then? How much have property values dropped from peak? The major problem is that when all the building work is finished [not ALL] , ...

Why don't Dubai businesses advertise their wares.........property, gold, diamonds, jewellery , holidays etc etc on sites like that http://www.visit-dubai.co.uk or one of the others? It seems to me that Dubai could MARKET MORE on the internet. DROP YOUR PRICES TOO!! Cut the flight and hotel prices to...

I see adverts on this site, but they do not reach customers in UK, USA, France , Germany, etc etc. Whereas a good informative tourism web-site does. with all due respect to you on this forum, it is very good, but it is mainly for INSIDERS who know Dubai. To MARKET Dubai globally and sell to OUTSIDER...

Arnie, You have certainly been an astute judge of Dubai property. As the old song "The Gambler" goes........"you've got know when to held 'em, and know when to fold 'em !! Don't count your money 'til the dealing's done!!!"" A lot of us hang on to investments too long. My pro...

I have no respect for people who don't work.I hate laziness. I am nearly 62 and I work a 7 day week much of the year , up to 14 hours a day in summer in the UK, with 3 businesses , one of them smallish. Now then, UAE Kid. The only reason that you don't have to work hard , is that the Arabian Gulf, o...

Arnie, I see you lived on the front at Dubai Marina. I've been there but don't know the area intimately. Did you ever meet a guy from Wales called Nick who bought a nice villa or property near the entrance of Dubai Marina in 2006 or 2005? He is about 51 and has wavy brown hair with a touch of grey. ...

Arnie, You miss my point re losing jobs!! If people in the UK are losing their jobs .....THEY are not going to visit Dubai are they? Nor will they buy property there!! They won't go to Dubailand either. The expats in Dubai are there to fill their pockets , sure........but Sheikh Mo has really got th...

Arnie, I agree with you on your opinions. So you were quite lucky in 2002. Happened to be in the right place at the right time. You could not have timed it much better by buying in 2002 and selling in 2007. TIMING IS EVERYTHING!! What were your buying prices in Sterling in 2002? Not familiar with di...

You say you converted from Dirhams to Sterling in Dec 2008. Did you have to leave that money in Dubai , or have you been allowed to bring it back to the UK ?
Is there any tax if you sell a Dubai property at a profit , then take the money out of the UAE and back to UK?

As property prices plunge down so low,
Investors and workers will soon have to go !
We learn to our cost,
That our jobs are being lost!!

Robbie, So there is no block by UAE banks on taking money out of the country? Other countries have done that in the past. Of course, Barclays are in Dubai . They are recovering now after a calamitous share price drop. They shot up this week . Royal Bank of Scotland shares were 14.5 pence each last M...

You have no idea . My "interest in Dubai" ? [1] I've been there! [2] Six from my small town work there. One got in there on Dubai residency with £12 million [sterling] to avoid tax in UK. He bought on the front of the marina for £900,000 in 2006. A friend of his says that is worth £1.5 mil...

They are building right out on the Palm,
So they're hoping the sea's always calm,
There will be stormy times,
In those southern climes,
So they'll all need a prayer and a psalm !!

If you have oil under your feet, you have a huge advantage without having to be clever. Tourism is ver...

I am not a Scot, so I am not tied emotionally to RBS. But the Scots are 5 million out of an UK 60 million, with 50 million in England.

The first should have syllables...eight,
The second should rhyme and add weight,
Then two lines of five,

He actually has 11 properties, at least out there, several around the marina. He bought in 2006/07 after moving from the UK.
Living expenses in Dubai look high.

Does Dunbar ring a bell as a marina address?
