The Doha News Housing Survey: How much does your home cost?


The rising cost of accommodation in Doha is a hot topic. After a three-year lull, house rents have begun to rise due to higher demand, and will continue to do so in the months to come, according to the Qatar Economic Outlook 2012-2013.

But not all increases are created equal, or are even legal. To get a better handle on how rental prices are changing in Qatar, we’re launching the Doha News Housing Survey, and aim to make it an annual assessment.

The short, anonymous questionnaire asks Qatar residents for basic information about how much they are paying for rent, and whether accommodation allowances provided by employers are keeping pace with price increases.

We’re also interested to hear how your rents and allowances (if any) have changed over the last few years.

To participate, click here.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you, and please do share this with your friends who live in Qatar.

Has your rent gone up this year? Are you able to afford it?
