Properties for sale in Barwa Village
For those who settle down in Qatar for the long run, investing in property in Qatar is a valid option. While most expats choose to rent during their time here, there has been an increase in the number of residents who are choosing to buy a villa in Qatar. One of the most important factors to remember is that buying property in Qatar automatically grants you a residency, which is also applicable to your family members. However, once the property is sold, the residency is canceled.
While this is an exciting move, there are a number of factors to consider before doing so. Of course, budget is the number one factor that comes to mind, as well as location, space and style. While you might consider using the property for your own personal use, there are many residents that now look at buying properties in Qatar as an investment and solely as a business deal. And while there are number of properties for sale in Doha, the county’s capital and all around hub, more and more residents and investors are looking away from the city limits and investing in other cities in Qatar, especially as the government is placing an increased effort in expanding the cities of the country.
One of those areas is Al Wakra, which is located on the eastern side of Qatar, just south of Doha. The city was originally a small fishing and pearling village, but over the years, it has devolved into a big town with a population of more than 30,000 and it is considered to be one of the major cities in Qatar and is home to Barwa Village, one of the most popular residential areas in the city.
