Renting a Apartment in Al Khor
There is a continuous influx of expats who are relocating to Qatar, as the country’s successful bid in hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup has created a number of jobs, and people from all over the world are choosing to move to Qatar and take advantage of the career development and high wage it is offering. Because of that, the Qatari Government is working hard to expand other cities in the country in addition to Doha, and offering development projects in those areas, with a major focus on real estate projects in order to provide new residential units in different locations, different styles and budgets, to cater the demand of residents. Luckily, there are a high number of properties for rent in Qatar available for expats.
As a result of most residents looking for properties for rent in Doha, the country's capital, prices of rent has increased dramatically, traffic is becoming heavier and heavier, and there are even waiting lists for schools and housing. Consequently, a number of residents are choosing to move further away from the city, and are looking for different housing locations than Doha.
One of those areas is Al Khor, which has witnessed an increase in development and the addition of projects ranging from housing, hotels, restaurants and cafes, as well as schools, health centres and more. Al Khor City is located in the northeast coast of Qatar, around 60 kilometres from Doha, and is now considered to be one of the major cities in the country.
