Being one of the biggest real estate markets in the GCC, Bahrain has a lot of rental options. Even if you are a student looking for affordable options or working personnel seeking luxury accommodations; there are a myriad of options. But before renting an apartment, there may be certain questions that cross your mind. We are covering the main ones here.
First and foremost, it’s important that you fix an average budget up to which you will be able to pay off each month as rentals. This is because the rates vary a lot depending on the location and space. If you are looking for a luxurious apartment, you can check out Apartments in Financial Harbour, Seef, or Reef with rentals starting from 400 and above. You can even find spacious 2-bedroom flats costing 850 BHD.
If you are on a budget, you can get Studio Apartments or 1 bedroom flats in Juffair in the range of 300 – 450 BHD and above.
Furnished apartments are always more expensive than unfurnished ones. First, you need to create a list of essential furniture that you require. Then if you have the time, research for good quality, and affordable furniture on websites like Home Center, The One Bahrain, etc. Get these delivered to your home directly and save money by choosing unfurnished apartments.
But if you do not have time to invest in looking for these items, then furnished apartments are the easiest option.
This is the most important part of your decision phase. It’s important that you read the agreement carefully and understand what services are being provided, the contract period, the maintenance charges, and the extras, if any.
Some apartments provide free facilities for gyms, private pools, small shopping malls, etc. If you would love to choose such facilities, opt for a luxurious apartment like the locations mentioned above.
Before deciding to move in, it is important that you know your rights. After you have figured out a location to stay, contact a real estate agent at House Me and a lawyer to know about the updated rental laws and contracts. They will be able to guide you through each and every process, starting from the location until the agreement.
Last but not least, understand the local culture of Bahrain. When moving to a different country, adapting and accepting the culture is important. Bahrain has always been a host to foreigners around the world and you will never regret choosing to stay here. For more queries on rentals and apartments, contact our realtors at House Me.
