Moving to Riyadh from Newyork -- pls help!

Whatsup guys?

So I'm moving to Riyadh soon, around November-end.

- Can you suggest decent/cheap western compounds of US/UK-based expats? Would someone be up to share an apartment space with me in the compound?

- If not the compound, which are the top 3 areas where I should be able to find a decent Studio/1-bed apartment? An area very central to the city especially the markets and a health club.

- Would it be necessary to go through a property dealer? Do they charge commissions on leasing apartments to tenants? If yes, how much?

- I heard that the culture of leasing is six-monthly and yearly contracts. Or it can be brought down to monthly rentals after negotiation?

Look forward to meet you guys once I'm there :)
