Real Estate Facing Challenges But Saif Has the Solutions

By Soko Directory Team / July 20, 2018




The real estate industry just like any other has been faced with issues that only seem to increase with time and are now threatening to cripple the industry.

Banks and other major lenders rarely wish to give acquisition or construction loans to private developers. The banks offering loans to the private developers are known to have most of the applications rejected. In their quest to solve housing problems, private estate developers are challenged with the lack of funds.

Land prices have escalated following road expansion projects by the Government in areas that were previously not so accessible. Land in the outskirts of Nairobi could previously go for as low as half a million but is currently priced at 2 million shillings and above. An acre of land in Karen was averaged at 2.5million which later rose to 20 million shillings and has currently shot to 60 million shillings.

It is a no-brainer why title deed fraud has become prevalent; getting a piece of land with an original trouble-free title is majorly a challenge in Kenya. Stories of bulldozers demolishing property because it is built on public land trend all the time as court cases on land continue to pile.

A report published in 2018 on real estate, indicated a decrease in rental price in all residential properties with apartments recording the highest decline of 12 percent in value and rental prices. This makes it difficult for the developer to recover their money as fast as they would have most likely planned.

Shortage of skilled construction is another challenge the industry has to grapple with. Most of the young people are leaning more towards the white collar jobs while others are trapped in drug addictions and crime.

However, things will soon ease up as the State lifted a 90-day ban on timber which had caused an upsurge of price in timber products with wooden prices rising from 150shillings to an exorbitant 320 shillings. Constructors who had already acquired poles before the ban could not transport them to sites because of the ban. The lifting of the ban is, therefore, definitely, good news to the construction industry.
