TIPS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING LANDS IN KENYA

Investment in land and property has become a key venture for any investor looking for a serious return on his investment. This comes with a number of challenges whereby some people are duped into buying land in areas in which they are not guaranteed of good returns. It is therefore important to conduct a prior research on any land or property before going ahead to buy it. Below are a number of factors to consider when buying lands in Kenya;

  • Evaluate the location- Location is the major factor affecting price considerations. Lands located near dumpsites or cemeteries usually have lower values compared to other lands. There is also no future appreciation to be expected. On a similar note, lands located in urban areas tend to be more expensive than those in rural areas. One needs to consider the location depending on the purpose for which he/she is buying lands in Kenya. For example land in rural areas are preferable when considering farming while those in urban areas are good when considering construction of a commercial building.
  • Distance from the main road- A land for sale in any place which is accessible to public transport is traditionally more costly. For example the value of land and property along Thika road greatly increased as a result of the construction of the Thika superhighway.
  • Do not work directly with the seller- Though it can be alluringly cheaper, the risk involved in this kind of transaction is extremely high. This is because the seller may give you false documents after the payment. There are also chances of dealing an imposter pretending to be the owner of the land.
  • Availability of communication networks- Good communication networks that is strong telephone and mobile phone signals is an essential component when considering buying lands in Kenya. This is more important for those investors looking to set up business empires. Business cannot be conducted without communication.
  • Electricity- Electricity is the source of power all over the world today. Almost every sector uses electricity for its day to day operations. Whether its agriculture, Information Technology, Communication or even science all require energy to operate. It has become almost impossible to do anything without electricity. Hence the need for availability of electricity around the area one intends to buy land.

Water- Water is another important consideration when buying lands in Kenya. For those buying land for farming, they will need water to irrigate crops. Water is also needed when buying land to construct rental property. The value of a house with piped water is higher than that without piped water. Investors need to consider buying land where it is easier to access water
