It cost about $950,000 to purchase a 1 bedroom apartment in 2008 and f you purchased a unit prior to completion, you could get them as low as $750,000.  Most current owners are holding on to their units and are not worried about the price drops, as this is the most well known property in Dubai and prices should recover quicker than any other property once economy gets better in Dubai.

Some see opportunities in the depressed markets. Savvy investors and institutional investors have started buying propertie in Dubai as investment.
