Properties for Rent in Al Wakrah
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 job opportunities, and people from all over the world are choosing to move to Qatar and take advantage of the career development and the high wages it is offers. 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.
As a result of residents looking for properties for rent in mostly in the country's capital, Doha, rent prices have increased dramatically, traffic is becoming heavier and heavier, and there are even waiting lists for schools and accommodations. Consequently, a number of residents are choosing to move further away from the city, and are looking for homes in different cities other than Doha.
One of those cities is Al Wakrah, which offers residents an insider look into Qatari cultural and tradition, as it is considered to be more of a traditional area, one that includes stunning mosques, old homes and a harbour. It is also home to Al Wakrah fort, considered to be a significant landmark in the country. The city is bordered by the Arabian Gulf on the eastern side, making it a coastal city.
