Ever since oil was discovered in Qatar in the 1940s this formerly economically weak fishing & pearling region has gone from strength to strength economically and currently boasts an economy & standard of living at par with most of the contemporary nations.

Positioned in the Arabian Peninsular and bordering Saudi Arabia to the South, the Emirate is otherwise bounded by the Persian Gulf and is self-governing and has been so since the early 1970’s. It does not form part of the United Arab Emirates and has not become part of Saudi Arabia.

Qatar is the hottest buzz word in up-and-coming property markets and savoir-faire investors are looking UP to the region to offer has been affording the world in recent years more of the incredible opportunities Dubai. Global confidence in Dubai Market has strengthened the fledgling investment property market in Qatar, resulting in the property market boom in Qatar.

The Pearl Qatar is one of the most remarkable and imposing developments. This man made island development is estimated to cost around $2.5 billion and is by far the largest property development being undertaken in Qatar. The second phase of the development was released in March 2005 to much anticipation. The Pearl Project post completion will form a 4-million sqm island home to around 30,000 people in an array of luxury and stunningly designed villas, town houses and apartments.

The Pearl will also feature hotels, restaurants, shops and boutiques as well as a 700 berth international yachting hub and the first homes are due for completion in 2007.

The consequence of this development should not be ignored, it will lift the profile of the Emirate, significantly improve and boost tourism numbers, the appeal of this location will become known globally and as a result the aspiration for freehold property in Qatar will strengthen which will lead to an ever escalation of the property market.

Looking to the Middle East region for the latest property hotspots or interested in diversifying your investment portfolio? If yes then it may well be time to consider the up-and-coming property market in Qatar.
