    An average nairobian pays btn 10 — 25k for rent. Now you develop a residential property, sell a unit at 15M. Expect someone to pay a mortgage instalment of around 45k… Ni ngumu sana… Developers should look into ability/income levels. It doesn’t require rocket science to define demand.

    Selling property in such ridiculously high prices in a third world country even in western countries the prices are not that high how many can afford 20m 50m 100m houses honestly where does that money come from.

    A house selling for ksh 20M without quality infrastructures – schools, shopping center, accessible roads or water supply is a joke.

    There are many factors that come into play when a project fails, product, price, location, business strategy etc. It’s therefore very naive and ignorant to assume that this is indicative of the “bubble bursting”! There are $1m homes selling effortlessly in Kenya, how come the “bubble” hasn’t burst for that demographic?
