Land is a precious commodity in Kenya. For more than 15 years, land prices in Kenya have been skyrocketing, hitting an all-time high in 2019, especially in major urban centers such as Nairobi. The price of land in Nairobi is not for the faint-hearted in terms of financial status. It needs someone with heavy pockets to afford.
With the prices of land in Nairobi so high, investors have started exploring other places and are increasingly moving out of Nairobi to satellite towns and other regions outside Nairobi County. According to Premier Realty Limited, dealers in property and real estate, amazing opportunities to own land and houses lie outside Nairobi.
According to the company, prices of land outside Nairobi are relatively affordable as compared to that within the city hence giving more prospective land and homeowners an opportunity to purchase a property without hurting their bank accounts.
Some of the places where one can buy land include:
Before buying land or a house, there are several things that you should consider according to Premier Realty Limited. Some of the things you should consider are:
The location of the land/property – where is your property located?
How far is it from your workplace?
Is it a place you can live and comfortably go to work?
The accessibility of the land/property- is the plot/property you intend to buy accessible?
How are the roads?
What is the area like when it rains/ Is it still accessible during the rainy season?
Security – how far is a police station?
Talk to the neighbors and ask them about the security of the area.
Social amenities- how far are the schools, churches, mosques?
Is the area well connected in terms of water and electricity?
The seller- the person selling land or house to you is very important. You do not want to find yourself running up and down the corridors of courts trying to give proof that indeed land is yours.
