Kenya’s First and Most Expansive Price Index

HassConsult is committed to the quarterly publication of The Hass Property Index. This has proven over the last decade to be an important tool providing investors, home owners, the financial industry and consumers with current and historical information about house price inflation- allowing them to make informed decisions in the housing market, in order to enjoy the best possible returns.

We believe the index has also helped us all to understand far better the Kenyan real estate market, the urban residential market - and by extension, some of the dynamics within the Kenyan economy. In our experience, the best decisions are made with the clearest possible information. It is by working to flag within the market what is rising, and what falling, that we can do the most in ensuring funds are directed towards the properties that are currently most needed and most sought, particularly making the case for more affordable housing which is trending and now widely available.

Q3. 2018 Highlights

Westlands properties benefit from spillover of the suburb becoming a MICE Hotspot

  • Property prices posted a 1.1 per cent over the quarter with detached housing leading the segment up 1.3 per cent in the while semi-detached houses posted the strongest total return at 11.8 per cent
  • Westlands suburb showing the strongest performance over the year with prices in the area improving by 7.9 per cent as it undergoes the "rediscovery" phase of the urban regeneration cycle - a result of high income earners moving back to neighborhoods more central to the city
  • Westlands receives the lion's share of major hotel brands that are setting up in Nairobi to tap into the growing Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) niche market.
  • Rents across the market increased by 1.5 per cent over the quarter down from 3.3 per cent in the previous quarter on tightening market liquidity.
