Thanks to revenues from oil and gas resources, Qatar has enjoyed stellar growth in recent years across all sectors, in particular with housing, as the interest in this tiny Gulf nation continues to rise. Having hosted the 2006 Asian Games and with work underway to successfully host the FIFA World Cup in 2022, the country is being seen as a highly attractive place to call home. As a result, the population has grown substantially, demanding intense development in housing options across the country.
Qatar is a peninsular country, with Doha as its capital. It is the largest city and remains most popular with both locals and expats alike. Apartments for rent in Qatar are found in abundance with varying sizes, styles and pricing to suit every taste and budget.
Although large developments have occurred in Doha itself, there are still many housing opportunities to be found elsewhere in Qatar such as Lusail, to the north of Doha and Al Wakra to the south.
The investment from the government has been significant and since Qatar is home to so many different people from around the world, developers work hard to provide a high standard of living that appeals to the very cosmopolitan communities across Qatar.
Most apartment buildings in Qatar come with their own gyms and pools which comes in especially useful during the hot summer months. There are also mostly unfurnished apartments but due to the transient nature of the population of Qatar, many landlords offer furnished or semi furnished apartments to make rentals more attractive. Apartments for rent in Doha are most abundant as it is the capital and largest city in Qatar and where the vast majority of the population resides.

Apartments for rent in The Pearl Qatar are some of the newest available on the market and are highly sought after due to their prestigious location on an icon of Qatar.

Although apartment living means one doesn’t get to enjoy their own garden or backyard, Qatar has many wonderful parks that are excellent in the cooler months. Aspire Park and MIA Park are two parks that are longstanding local favourites in Doha.
Overall the general standard of flats for rent in Qatar is high and the market leans slightly towards tenants which means they remain reasonably affordable and within reach of most people.
