Many drop thousands of dollars on the spot for a year?s worth of rent on a new apartment in many parts of Africa, but with the current real estate boom, many are in the market to buy their own homes. If you?re in Ghana, you probably know just how competitive the market is for both locals and expatriates alike. There can be nothing more frustrating than trying to bid for a home that comes off the market as quickly as it came on, with the highest bidder (by a stretch for that matter), dropping down wads of hard cash even before you were able to see the place.
Prime Ghanaian real estate may be a hot commodity these days, but there is nothing more fun than scoping out spanking new places and playing along with an image of happily ever after as you attempt to plop down more permanent roots. Whether you?re looking to settle down, be closer to work or shops and restaurants, there are several places you can begin to explore to get you going. We looked through real estate sites in Ghana and have come out with a few of the best the city has to offer, all under half a million dollars. Happy searching!
