Where to Buy Land with Less Than 1 a Million in Kenya


Many people would like, and want to live around Nairobi Metropolis. Some because this is where they work, have their businesses, or just because they like the city environment. The challenge, however, comes when it gets to acquisition or purchase of land to build the homes.

Land in Nairobi is very expensive, and you may find a piece of property of 50×100 (1/8-acre), or even smaller running into tens of millions of shillings. This is because Nairobi is regarded as one of the fastest growing cities in Africa. The growth, which stretches to the population increases demand for property, and this demand increases the price of land around the city.

To feed this demand, Nairobi Metropolis dwellers started looking at satellite towns near the city for such investment. These are areas where little had been thought of, and this has changed the dynamics when it comes to buying land in Kenya.

Land rates vary from one place to another depending on the availability of basic infrastructure in these areas. Accessibility by road, availability of water and electricity, and the size are just but a few of the things that determine how to price land.

Some of the counties that have benefited a lot due to their proximity to the city include Kiambu, Machakos, and Kajiado, which all have satellite towns considered part of the Nairobi Metropolitan area.
