Properties advertised as fully furnished come with most or even all the furnishings that one would typically require in their home. This includes all the large kitchen appliances like cooker, fridge-freezer, oven, microwave etc. Some properties even provide smaller kitchen appliances like a kettle and toaster etc. The bedrooms would have wardrobes, beds with mattresses, dressing tables etc. and the living areas would have furniture like sofas, dining table and chairs, television, etc. In some cases, fully-furnished homes are also dressed with wall hangings, frames, mirrors etc, so that the home is ready to move into with little else being required to start living in straight away. This is a great convenience for many, especially those who are staying for a limited time or their tenure here in Qatar has not yet been fixed and their long-term situation is unknown.
The monthly rental on fully furnished properties as would be expected is more than other options where some or no furnishings are included and once the cost of furniture is factored in, one could end up saving overall as there are no extra costs to include. Of course, there are many things one must take into account like the duration of the tenancy, the condition of the furniture and the difference in the monthly/annual rental price.
Sometimes properties are advertised as fully furnished but if one really likes the property and has their own furniture etc., it is possible to try and negotiate a reduction in the monthly rental with the landlord or real estate company. The greatest convenience is that with a fully furnished property, once the rental duration comes to an end, there is no furniture to worry about when moving out and it is a lot easier to relocate.
A house is a property that is usually set out over two or more floors. In Qatar, houses are usually referred to as villas, although it is possible to also find townhouses too. There are two kinds of villas: either standalone villas or compound villas. A standalone villa is defined as a house that has boundary walls and stands on its own private land as a detached and separate entity. A compound villa is defined as a house that is located within a residential compound or "neighbourhood/society". Compounds vary in size and can be anything from a handful of houses to hundreds in the much larger compounds. Both have their benefits and drawbacks for example, standalone villas offer more privacy for their occupants and compound villas usually benefit from many more amenities, security and maintenance.
A townhouse is a type of terraced housing often referred to as "row houses" as they are constructed in rows and stand side by side with shared walls usually to both sides. Most townhouses typically have more than 2 floors and commonly three in most regions. There is a wide variety of houses available in Qatar with varying amenities and suitable for most budgets.
Al Daayen is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Qatar. The north of Al Daayen shares its border with the Al Khor municipality and it is predominantly a rural and agricultural area with few settlements and several farms. The west is bordered with the Umm Salal municipality. The two main roads running through Al Daayen are the Al Shamal Road which passes vertically through the western part of the Al Daayen municipality and the Al Khor Coastal Road which runs through the central and eastern parts linking the cities of Doha and Al Khor.
The south of Al Daayen shares its border with the northern part of the Qatari capital. Due to its proximity with Doha, the southern region has been influenced greatly by the capital and this area has seen rapid development serving as the economic and residential hub of Al Daayen. The city of Lusail in particular is where most of this growth has been concentrated, offering some of the most modern and beautifully constructed homes available for rent or sale, perfect for families and couples alike. It is fast becoming a popular area to find new homes for rent in Qatar with various tastefully furnished compound villas and apartments available to move into immediately.
