It’s definitely possible! You can find unique and affordable apartments in Qatar. A lot of people living in the country have the precipitation that luxurious places are always very expensive to rent. However, this is not always true. In Qatar, especially in Doha, you can find apartments for rent with different variety of prices.

There have been many job cuts in the past few months and, a lot of people have moved out of the country. This means the current supply of apartments is very high and, real estate companies are always happy to negotiate with prices.

Know what you can afford to pay in rent

Rent is one of your major monthly expenses, if not the month. Therefore, you will need to understand how much you are willing to pay per month—experts advice not to pay more than a third of your income on rent. For example, if your monthly payment is QR 10,000/month, then you shouldn’t be paying for than QR 3,300/month. Of course, this should include all bills and internet fees that you come with the rent.

Pro tip: The further you rent from the Doha (the city) and The Pearl Qatar, the better chances of finding quality, and well-priced housing. However, make sure that the area you are renting in has excellent access to public transportation, such as Karwa Bus or Doha Metro.

Excellent Locations and Affordable Apartments
