Leading Property Portal Looks At The State Of Real-Estate Sector In Kenya

Kenya’s property market has been on an upscale over the past two decades. The upward trend of the property prices has been facilitated by 25 percent  growth of the middle class with more purchasing power.

This has necessitated the property developers to focus on high-end properties targeting the new  middle class. Nowadays, the growing middle class is seeking for  unique homes with exquisite finishing, secure environment and  unquestionable infrastructure.

The low interest rates of between 11-14 percent that have been enacted by the government, creates substantial cash flow for the middle class society. Lamudi Kenya

 Senior Key Account Manager Oliver Manyasi says, “With attractive interest rates, a limited supply of housing, and a more educated and ambitious population, the real estate market is faced with many opportunities to excel in the future.”

With the growing population, the housing deficit of 100,000 per year in Kenya clearly indicates that the huge demand-supply gap has not been able filled. Meanwhile, the rate of investments reaching a staggering 30% makes the real estate sector a valuable opportunity for investment.

Manyasi added that Kenya is East Africa’s economic hub, with a projected Gross Domestic Product of 5.7 percent in 2014 according to Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, creates more opportunities for the real estate sector.The property market will remain strong, with increased demand for high-end property segments holding steady to meet the international standards for the ever-growing expat community and middle class.

The discovery of minerals and expansion of infrastructure (transport and telecommunication) has also opened up latent areas intensifying the property market. As the savvy foreign investors prefer investing in the African property market, Kenya being the economic hub and a tourist destination, lies well within this property investment basket.
