Default Finding a place to live - Doha

Whats the best way to go about this guys and girls?

Does anyone know of any reputable agents/real estate people or companies?

Also can anyone give me any names and locations of good compounds or towers?

Budget is circa 10k inc of utilities, ideally i'd like a 2 bed for when my parents visit.

Thanks

You'll get a decent flat in Al Saad for that budget , maybe better off having a drive around on a Friday and asking the security guards , agents are a nightmare here as everywhere in the ME , you'll end up paying a fee for basically nowt .

Try Al Saad , Abu Hammour , Al Waab for pretty central digs . The further you go towards West Bay and The Pearl the higher the premium will be .

Choice is not that great here but there's still a few good places out there you just have to put the leg work in and go from there .

Exactly that. I have lived in Al Waab and now Al Sadd. I prefer Al Sadd as you can have a wonder around at night, plenty of places to eat and you can get a cab before you have smoked a marlboro red. Every part of town is 20 chips away.

Try property finder.qa as a rough idea of prices and what's on offer
Don't believe the pictures though and don't believe the agents

try here: http://alameenproperties.com/properties.php

Al Ameen Apartments
Old Salatha- Close to Corniche
F/F 2 and 3 BHK Deluxe Apartments,
with Fully equipped Gym Hall, Basic Connections & Free maintenance.

2 bed, furnished is QR8k/m incl. all utility bills (or QR 6k/m for a one bed).

They'll do a 6 month lease too, which would give you time to settle without too much commitment.

Ok, so how do you find out where compounds are or what they are called?

No didnt think it would be easy sorting it out, but thought finding out where places are might be a little easier
