Africa's Emerging Real Estate Trends.

Africa's emerging real estate market is booming and new trends and innovations into the industry are providing more opportunities for investment. The continent has seen a rapid urbanization in the last decade and this has led to a rise in demand for residential properties. Africa has also seen an unprecedented surge in the number of wealthy individuals with disposable incomes, which is attracting foreign investors. The following article explores some of these trends and what they mean for the future of real estate on the continent.

 

The Rise of Africa's Emerging Real Estate Market

Africa is the world's youngest continent and has seen a rapid urbanization in the last decade. As a result, there has been an unprecedented rise in demand for residential properties and opportunities for investment.

The continent's emerging real estate market is booming and new trends and innovations into the industry provide more opportunities for investors. One trend is the emergence of 'gated communities' which are unique in their level of security features. These communities offer amenities such as golf courses, private schools and top-notch security services such as 24-hour video surveillance systems with guards on patrol, perimeter fencing with gates and cameras. This trend is showing how Africa's emerging market is attracting foreign investors who want to enjoy high levels of safety in their own homes.

Another emerging trend is that of luxury apartments in Africa's burgeoning cities. Developers are creating luxurious living spaces that include amenities like swimming pools, gymnasiums, theatres and underground parking spaces. The popularity of these properties can be seen through their high occupancy rates; many units remain unoccupied for months at a time because they are rented out before construction finishes.

There are also new innovative ways to build homes on the continent including pre-fabricated modular houses which can be assembled quickly by unskilled labour without experts needed to oversee construction.

 

Africa's Housing Crisis

Africa is one of the fastest urbanizing continents in the world. In many countries, such as Nigeria and Uganda, you can see that the rate of urbanization is outpacing that of population growth. This has led to a housing crisis where there are not enough houses for all those people coming into cities. This is especially true in countries like Nigeria where there is a high demand for housing despite a low supply.

 

There are many reasons why this housing crisis has emerged and it's a complicated issue with no easy solution. One main cause for this problem is finance as Africans simply cannot afford to purchase the homes they need. There are limited financial resources available to them and banks do not have enough money to lend to citizens to build houses, which means that people must turn to informal lenders who charge higher rates of interest. Another reason for Africa's housing crisis is poor access to credit, which prevents Africans from being able to borrow money from banks or other formal institutions to buy property.

 

This housing crisis will only get worse if left unresolved and could lead to unsustainable patterns. It's estimated by 2050 50% of Africans will be living in cities and this trend will continue from 2020-2070 when Africa will account for 90% of global urban population growth. The continent needs more developers involved in the process so that the housing demands can be met before it becomes an unmanageable problem.>>END>>

 

Africa's Housing Solutions

Africa's housing solutions are evolving quickly. From the affordable to the lavish, there is a wide range of housing options that will suit all budgets. This fact has led to an influx in investments into the real estate market.

 

Consequences in the Future of the Property Market

In the next 10 to 15 years, Africa is projected to have a population of 1.5 billion people, with most of it concentrated in cities or large towns. Construction and development will be key for this rapidly expanding market as real estate developers scramble to meet the demands of a booming population.

Conclusion

Africa's property market is still in its embryonic stages and has a long way to go before it reaches the size and scope of other property markets, but it is showing all the signs of burgeoning and sustainable growth. The continent's stability and booming economy mean that its housing market will continue to grow and grow.
