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.
Al Mansoura is a district in the Doha municipality of Qatar. To its north is Fereej bin Derham district and together they are commonly and jointly referred to as "Al Mansoura". Officially they together form zone 25 of the 98 zones that make up Qatar. It is a very densely populated area due to its central location between the B-Ring Road to its north and C-Ring Road to its south. To the east is the district of Nuaija and to its west is the district of Rawdat Al Khail and the area is well served by public transport with the Metro and 4 bus routes running 7 days of the week.
It has many commercial and government office blocks but most of all the area is populated with residential apartment blocks. Some of these are private with studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments available for rent. However, many are actually residential blocks for the employees of various large corporations like Qatar Airways, Hamad Medical Corporation and Carrefour. As a result, it is not an area that has many schools or even homes to rent for families. The area has plenty of apartments for rent varying from fully furnished high-end luxurious flats with all the modern conveniences and facilities to the cheaper simpler apartments to rent for bachelors or couples on a budget.
