50 by 100 plot of land

Investing in real estate is a significant decision, and determining the ideal land size is a crucial aspect of this process. In a previous episode, I delved into the considerations for choosing the right land size for investment. Today, the focus is specifically on the widely advertised 50 by 100 plots, measuring 50 feet by 100 feet. These plots are prevalent in online advertisements in Kenya, and their popularity sparks curiosity among potential investors. As someone deeply involved in real estate with commercialke, it’s important to provide insights based on professional experience to help potential buyers make informed decisions.

Historical Context and Zoning

Historically, land parcels smaller than an acre were generally not zoned for agricultural use unless specific interventions justified such use. However, in densely populated areas where land resources are scarce, it’s not uncommon to find individuals utilizing 50 by 100 plots for agriculture. The shift towards advertising these plots with greenhouses adds a layer of complexity to their potential use. While the idea of earning revenue from the land sounds promising, it’s imperative for potential buyers to investigate whether the necessary processes have been followed to justify agricultural use. This includes confirming the legal designation of the land for residential, commercial, or agricultural purposes.

Challenges of Undeveloped Plots

One prominent aspect of 50 by 100 plots is their prevalence in rural or undeveloped parts of the country. While some may have basic accessibility, they often lack essential utilities such as water, power, and sewer systems. The practicality of investing in such plots needs careful consideration. Buyers must weigh the potential return on investment against the challenges posed by the lack of infrastructure. Understanding the limitations of undeveloped plots is crucial for making an informed decision.

Company Perspective

We take a distinctive stance on the sale of 50 by 100 plots. The company does not engage in selling plots of this size, and there are specific reasons behind this decision. One primary consideration is the substantial cost involved in providing utilities and obtaining necessary approvals for smaller plots. The company prioritizes offering larger plots, such as half acres and full acres, to provide more feasible and value-driven investment opportunities for its clients.

Evaluating True Value

When contemplating the purchase of an eighth of an acre, potential buyers should critically evaluate the true value they are receiving. The decision to invest in a smaller plot should not solely be based on affordability but should consider the long-term implications. Commericalke refrains from offering one-eighth acre plots due to the belief that the cost involved in servicing such plots outweighs the benefits to the buyer. Buyers are encouraged to scrutinize seemingly lucrative offers and assess whether the investment aligns with their long-term goals.

Due Diligence and Questions

Investigating and asking critical questions are essential steps for potential buyers. Ensuring that due process has been followed and the land is suitable for the intended purpose is crucial. Buyers should be cautious when confronted with seemingly lucrative offers and should scrutinize the value they are receiving for their investment. The due diligence process is not only about legality but also about understanding the practicality and future potential of the investment.


In conclusion, the decision to invest in a 50 by 100 plot should be made after thorough consideration of factors such as location, utilities, and legal designations. Buyers are encouraged to ask questions, seek proof of due process, and conduct due diligence to ensure their investment aligns with their long-term goals. As the real estate landscape continues to evolve, making informed decisions becomes increasingly vital.
