What to look out for when buying a house in Ghana

When you are ready to buy a house in Ghana there are some important things that you need to consider before writing that cheque. When you see a “house for sale in Ghana” sign that you are interested in, you should immediately start thinking about these 3 main points:

1. Work with a verified agent or developer

Agents and developers know the real estate market in Ghana and can guide you throughout the process. The agents on meqasa.com are verified agents and agencies that can assist you in your search for a property. We verify each agent and developer that is listed on this website so you can be assured of professionals. Avoid unapproved and unprofessional agents who will cause you more harm than good. You can ask whether the agent is registered with the Ghana Association of Real Estate Brokers (GAR) to start with. For developers, you can check if they are members of the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA).

2. Research

Don’t just take the word of an agent for granted. Even though they are truthful, the fact of the matter remains that they are selling you a property and so they may only highlight the positives. After viewing the property, interview some of the locals about the property to find out if there has been any past history that you should know about. Scout the area by day and night to find out if its a good area with low noise pollution, active streetlights, peaceful neighbours, etc.

Compare the prices of similar properties within the area to find out if you are paying the right amount for this property. Your personal investigation is key to acquiring a worthwhile property.

3. Condition of the home

The condition in which you are acquiring the house is very important if you want to benefit from your investment. In Ghana, Buying a house means that you acquire the land title as well. Check to see in the land is good and whether or not it’s situated in a waterway or is prone to flooding. Check the state of the building and look out for the alignment of the pillars, floor plans, the strength of the building etc. You can get a valuer or developer to profile the land and check the structural integrity of the building.

How to buy a house as a Ghanaian living in the diaspora

If you are living away from home and want to purchase a house then it would be best to work with an agent or someone you trust. This person should be able to inspect the property you want to purchase. The person should be knowledgeable within the Ghanaian real estate market so that they can make informed decisions and communicate that to you.

If you happen to come to Ghana for a visit at an ideal time and have some time to spare, then you can also attend the Meqasa housing fairs to have a real face to face meeting with top developers in Ghana.

How to buy a house as a foreigner in Ghana

If you are an expat living in Ghana or a non-resident foreigner who is interested in purchasing land in Ghana then this is for you. If you are buying a house in Ghana as an investment then you would be required to register with the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC). If you are purchasing land for your personal use then you should do your due diligence first.
