얼마나 될 거예요?
I want to say "How much it will be (the cost)?". e.g. the price of apartment or car or item that i want to purchase.
I try like this:
(this apartment (price) how much it will be? )
얼마나 될 거예요?

얼마나 될 거예요? is needlessly complicated.

We say 얼마예요?, which is like "How much is it?".

Of course the ending can be different, as in 얼마지요?,  얼마입니까?, etc. depending on the situation.

Yeah, I forgot that it was about big items like a hour or car.  You are right you wouldn't say "How much is it?" for those :-)

To just get the general idea on the price, you could ask (가격이) 얼마나 할까요?/될까요?, (돈이) 얼마나 들까요?, (가격을) 어느 정도로 잡아야 될까요?   The first two are like "How much would it amount to?", and the last one's similar to "What sort of price am I looking at?".

되다 and 하다 in these have the sense of "amount to" or "come to". 

될 거예요? sound a little unnatural though. A similar but more natural way to say it is 얼마나 될 것 같아요? (What do you think the price will be?).

Thanks~ Actually i dont want to as directly 
Situation is like I am reluctant to ask "How much? (Price)".

Just want to know "How much it will cost?" Or "How much it will be?". Because of some feeling that money is not sufficient.

May be what i want to say is "알마인가요?".
