Apartments for sale in Doha make up the majority of apartments for sale in Qatar. It is more common for investors to buy apartments, and many purchase brand new apartments off plan.
You can buy apartments in Doha either as freehold, where the title deed is held by the owner indefinitely or as leasehold, where the flat can be held by the owner for a maximum of 99 years.
Other than buying an apartment in Doha to live in, there are other benefits, such as for investment purposes. Qatar is a great place to invest, and many find properties in Doha a lucrative option, as the projections for return in the coming years are financially enticing.
Another reason for purchasing an apartment is that with property ownership over a specific limit, you can gain residency in Qatar. Non-Qataris who purchase property over 730,000 QAR (approximately $200,000) will acquire a temporary residence permit, valid as long as the property is held. For this price, you could only look at apartments for sale.
Those investing a more significant amount to the tune of 3.65 million QAR (about $1 million) will gain a permanent residency. A permanent residency has further benefits, including education and health care. For this price, you can find 3 and 4 bedroom apartments for sale in The Pearl.
