Why Real Estate Investors Need to Invest in Houses for Low-Income Earners

Peter Musila 3 years ago

The demand for affordable housing has been growing day in day out. It emerges out that most real estate investors have over the years concentrated on addressing the high-end market forgetting the low-end for the middle- and low-income earners.

Due to the high supply, the demand for high-end houses is slowly reaching saturation level and hence the need for the investors to start thinking of opportunities available from investing in middle- and low-income earners.

According to Erdemann Property Managing Director John Zeyun Yang, both the private and governments sectors should find a way of addressing the rising demand for the low-end market housing as it has been left out by the real estate industry.

“Because of urbanization, the demand for housing has consistently grown and is now over the one million marks with more than 200,000 units per annum, as per the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development.”

“The demand for housing is more compared to the supply. The middle and low-income earners have been forgotten, and there is a need for the Government and private developers to channel their energy in the provision of housing for this group.”

Mr. Yang made the remarks while commencing the Great Wall Gardens in Athi River where the company will be building 592 units. This phase comes after Erdemann in which the company built 2,173 units.

“On infrastructure development, we urge the county government and the local authority to improve the provision of necessary services like road network, water supply, and sewer lines.”

“Where these services exist, they need to be expanded and increased to cater for increased demand.”
