Real Estate

I really dont know what to write here about these ( I really dont want to swear) real estate agents. I use to think these Qataris are gettin rich by increasing the housing rents and all, but I think its these agents who earn much more than the owners. they divide the a big house into 10 small rooms with partition and put it up for rent and earn money. Sori to be rude, but Qataris hardly work so thats the advantage these Local expatriates take and rent these houses for about 5000 and then re-rent it up for 10000. Qatri govt on a serious note need to do somethin abt it. all they do is keep bullshittin about it and no action, I told you these ppl hardly work. Is there we at QL can do anything about?

PS:I feel extremely sori for Mr John Mathews. I wish I could help you in some way.

Qatari Government can easily get rid of the troubles these agents are causing. The idea is to start a database and a housing authority (dont know if there is already one)

All the expatriates who have a family visa should register their house numbers / I.D. Card numbers with the housing authority. The housing authority's job should be to make sure that a person on family visa should only be able to register one house under his name and they should make it compulsory for ever expatriate to register his house number.

In this case an Agent would not be able to register more than one house on his name. Moreover the bachelors should be made to live in accomodation for Bachelors. and they should not be allowed to rent villas and other accomodations suitable for the families. This would definitely ease the housing crisis going on in Qatar. This idea was floated long time ago but it did not get the Government's approval. Guess government does not want to help the expatriates as the housing crisis is directly favoring the Qataris. (Who knows)

This is the latest trend, rooms in villas. Some people are charging 2500 Riyals/month for a room. I remember when you could rent an apartment for that sort of money.

And all in the name of a market economy.
