Hi everyone, I joined this community because I'm thinking to buy an apartment in Dubai as a financial investment and a place to spend holidays - the cheapest possible, just a 1 bedroom for me. I've checked the prices for apartments for sale in Jumeirah Beach Residence , but I still I am not sure how much it costs to maintain a 1 bedroom apartment in Dubai, including rent, water, electricity, internet, all that... Could you please inform me about this? How much should I expect to pay monthly? I hope someone here will be able to help me Thanks
