Properties advertised as unfurnished come with no furnishings. This differs from some other countries where unfurnished relates specifically to "furniture" only like beds, sofas, dining table etc. In Qatar when a property advert is listed as unfurnished this means that there are no appliances in the kitchen (only fitted kitchen cabinetry), or air conditioning units fixed and sometimes there are no fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms. It is important to consider this when searching for a home as these are costs that must be taken into consideration when budgeting for rental accommodation. Although the monthly rental on unfurnished properties often cheaper than properties with furnishings, once the cost of furniture is factored in, one can sometimes end up paying more overall per month. 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 families prefer to buy their own furniture that meets their needs and suits their taste or when they move to Qatar, they may be moving permanently in which case they may decide to bring their furniture with them. Sometimes properties are advertised as unfurnished but for an increased monthly rental the landlord or real estate company is prepared to provide furniture. One thing to bear in mind is that if an unfurnished property is rented and furniture is bought, once the rental duration comes to an end the furniture will be an extra thing to take care of that one would not have to worry about otherwise, so this may not be the most ideal option for rentals of short or unknown duration.
Muaither is a district in the municipality of Al Rayyan, situated in a rawda, or depression. This geographic characteristic allows water runoff to accumulate, resulting in plant growth which attracted Bedouins rearing livestock to the area. Hence the area name is derived from the Arabic word "mathar", or "place where animals are kept".
The east of the district is adjacent to the district of Baaya which is home to the Aspire Zone with its park, stadium and Villagio Mall. The district has good road links, Al Waab Street runs along the south edge of the district and Furousiya Street along its east edge. There are several parks and the community's medical needs are served by Al-Hekma Medical Complex. The district has more than 10 local and international schools for all ages and is home to Muaither SC, a multi-sports club with its own football team. Muaither Metro station will be part of Doha Metro's Green Line once construction is completed.
