Real estate Agencies and Developers
Africa’s real estate sector is a significant driving engine for the continent’s economic recovery, with more than $800m disclosed deals in 2022 only by different stakeholders.
The Real Estate sector is growing at an unprecedented level.
Here are some of the contributing factors to that growth;
Population growth key factor
The African population growth is one of the major factors driving real estate growth on the continent. It’s estimated that by 2050, the population will have doubled to 2.5 Billion. This growth has created an acute shortage for housing on the continent.
Rapid urbanisation is pushing up demand
Urban growth is projected to be the fastest by 2050. This urban transition offers great opportunities in the real estate industry. There is a need to accommodate this deficit in the housing sector to meet the rising demand.
Proptech powering the industry
This growing technology space in the real estate industry. The sector grew rapidly during the 2020 pandemic, with innovators developing tech solutions to influence the industry. Areas of significant impact are smart buildings and technology using AI to help drive automation, improving the landlord and tenant experience, and flexibility in the physical spaces.
Increased Government initiatives
Many African Governments are stepping up in efforts to attract Foreign direct investments (FDI) in the different economic sectors. The real estate industry is one of the major driving forces of economic growth in a number of nations on the continent. And as such, many investment incentives have been initiated to attract investors in this sector.

Most Frequently Asked Questions.
How do I pick the right property for investment?
This depends one’s reason for purchasing a property;
- Self-use. Here the property is for personal utilisation, saves you on rent, while also getting value appreciation.
- Rent/Lease. This offers regular income and long-term value appreciation. However, this calls for property management experience, to handle possible disputes and legal issues, manage tenants, repair work, etc.
- Buy and sell (short-term). This is generally for quick flip, small to medium profit—the typical property is under construction and sold at a profit on completion.
- Buy and sell (long-term). This is generally focused on large value appreciation over a long duration. This offers alternatives to long-term goals, such as retirement.
