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.
Muraikh is a district in the municipality of Al Rayyan in Qatar. Together with 5 other districts it forms zone 54 of Qatar. It receives its name from a highly drought-resistant desert plant, known locally as "markh" which grows abundantly in the local area and is considered good fodder for camels and other livestock. Its botanical name is "Leptadenia pyrotechnica" and it is actually a variety of desert herb with medicinal properties that can be consumed.
The district is easily accessible by public transport as 2 bus routes run through it and there are several local schools and nurseries in addition to the many residential compounds that offer a great selection of homes for families to rent in Muraikh. There are plenty of fully furnished villas to rent with green areas and sports facilities and having the Aspire Zone with it's large park, stadium, tower, extensive sporting facilities and the much-loved Villagio Mall situated nearby makes it an ideal location for families renting in Qatar.
