Our Specialist Buying Service

AL specializes in maximizing investors’ returns in the rental sector in Prime West-African Property (PWAP). We are not simply a buying agent. We provide an integrated approach to asset management, including property search, renovation, interior design, development, lettings, ongoing property and sales management. All underpinned by sophisticated financial modelling and all handled under one roof.

Our one stop service

Sourcing & Acquisition - African Land

Sourcing & Acquisition

Unlike other real estate agents who act for the seller, AL acts for you, the buyer. We represent your interests and screen the whole of the Prime West-African Property (PWAP) market for the best properties to meet your requirements. AL’s reputation ensures we hear about them first.

We put together a recommended shortlist with in-depth financial analysis. Following your final selection, we negotiate the best possible price and manage the whole purchase process, meeting tight deadlines in a competitive market.

Refurbishment & Design - African Land

Refurbishment & Design

Some of the properties we manage in Prime West-Africa require complete refurbishment or even redevelopment. As project manager and design consultant, AL provides detailed specifications and fixed price quotes, working with a selected team of contractors.

We complete works on time and to budget, furnishing each property after renovation, so it can be quickly let. Creating a boutique ‘hotel-style’ look, we maximize the property's appeal to tenants and create a significant capital uplift – a crucial part of the investment strategy

Letting & Management - African Land

Letting & Management

With each rental investment, our key objective is to deliver the highest returns and best quality tenant, as quickly as possible. AL proactively market so flats let quickly and our occupancy rates run in excess of 94%.

We reference and meet all potential tenants and provide responsible, accountable property management. AL acts on your behalf at all times, ideal if you want to delegate all day-to-day aspects of property management. AL specialises in acting for off-shore landlords.

Home seeker service - African Land

Home seeker & concierge service

Alongside our rental investment service, we assist home seekers looking for a property in PCL. We search on and off market until we find exactly what you want. However, we are not simply a buying agent, our one stop service includes acquisition, refurbishment and interior design.

AL also provides concierge services and vacant management for owners who only use their properties periodically. AL will settle your bills, pay your staff and cater for your requests, before, during and after your stay.

Managed Sales - African Land

Managed Sales

AL assists its clients throughout the investment process from beginning to end representing your best interests at all times. That means that if you, as our client, ever decide to divest, we will work on your behalf to ensure your property is sold as quickly as possible and at the highest possible price.

AL's in-depth knowledge of the market means that we can use our extensive network of contacts as well as selecting the best local agents to add to your marketing firepower. We will always approve and check property particulars, monitor sales progress, liaise with lawyers and respond to enquiries to achieve a successful transaction.
