Qatar’s real estate market has developed at a remarkable pace in the last 2 decades. Nowadays tenants enjoy the privilege of having a wide array of choices at hand. With recent rates adjustments even relocation has become a trend in the residential sector. If you are looking for a new place to live, you have arrived in the best moment!
Despite the benefits of a vast selection, unfortunately while browsing online for available properties you may only acquire basic data such as location, size, rate and some Visuals of the property advertised. Furthermore, While engaging With agents, real estate companies and friends, additional information is collected and your selection criteria starts to shape up.
Nevertheless, the most important information is not always available unless you specifically ask for it; this refer to the quality of life in the properties shortlisted. In Doha, tenants expect basics handouts according to the brand reputation of the Real Estate portfolio, however professional Facilities & Property Management services are becoming an exclusive commodity of selected properties only. It is fundamental to inquire the extent of the services you will receive as well as what is included Within your potential contractual rate. There are several details that Will impact in your overall stay such as maintenance responsiveness among others.
Similarly, environmental friendly practices and community activities within a property, are not permanently Visible. If you value this approach and would like your family or company to grow within this environment, always ask if the property offers it.
For example, aligned with Qatar 2030 Vision, Les Roses compounds have developed a range of sustainable free trainings and workshops for children including an exclusive Sustainable Animal Welfare Program to educate them on how to deal with house pets, stray animals, etc. In this direction, I strongly recommend that potential tenants ask questions such as pets and stray animals handling methods on the compound. This would really make a difference in fulﬁlling your expectations in the future. Whether you are or not an animal lover, you would like to know if TNR (Trap Neuter and Return) programs are implemented, how often it happens and how it is financed. The difference on the approach to this subject in the market is immense and obviously as well its outcome.
Here is where we excel at: Increasing standards of Community Life plus a wide growth for Sustainable practices. At Les Roses, we pioneered on engineering an exclusive Sports, fitness 81 sustainable activities program that we offer free of charge to our tenants only.
All members of the family are thought of while we tailor each activity. These ranges from Taekwondo, Zumba, swimming, Lego and other classes. Moreover we have created our own Les Roses Color Run completion plus a series of tournaments along the year bringing the community closer. So if you are a sport enthusiast, our Basketball, Football, Tennis and Squash tournaments are awaiting! As expats, who live away from our home countries, communities are even more valuable. This atmosphere is where neighbors turn into friends and a house becomes a home.
This assessment similarly applies to the commercial market. LEED, GSAS certiﬁed commercial properties are available in the market enabling companies that are committed to sustainability to fulfill the CSR goals. We proudly own the first LEED Gold certified building in Energy City, Lusail which constituted today a ﬂagship of sustainability in Qatar, maximizing energy efficiency while reducing negative environmental impact and carbon footprint.

Taking all of the above into accounts, I highly recommend house and office hunters to get ready with these set of questions while Visiting their pre—selected properties; it may help to take their ultimate decision based on the real value that fits each individual’s priorities.
Our children of today, are the champions of tomorrow. Let’s build sustainable communities now that promote healthy living and social responsibility. The future lays in our choices, always ask what these are.
