Westlands is one of the fastest growing areas that started as a white settlement and later a settlement for labourers during the colonial period who were mostly Indians. It is growing fast and if you want to get a high return in investment, you can pick to view some of the available opportunities in commercial spaces in Westlands, apartments for sale in Westlands and stand alone in Westlands or along the Waiyaki Way.
Langat is just a few minutes from the city and most of the working class around Nairobi are moving to this area. It is a good area to invest as the property in the area is not built within estates. Most people are now shifting to living in gated communities due to extra amenities that come with gated community property.
Kitisuru is an expansion of Runda in some way. It is growing very fast as it is part of the blue zone. Blue zone are areas which have been reviewed and expatriates have been allowed to live in mainly those who work in the UN.
Kilimani has grown to be more of a residential area that a commercial place. We have very beautiful apartments coming up especially but the Chinese developers. If you want to find an apartment for investment with a good price and high return, then check the Kilimani properties.
Runda is out of the question the most lucrative areas for people who have already invested in the area. You can get a mix of the old villas and the new maisonette in the area. Being a controlled environment people are not allowed to build apartments. People who are now benefiting in Runda are those investing in areas surrounding Runda like, Thindigua, Kiambu Road, Kasarini, paradise lost and the southern bypass.
Karen is also a key area to invest as it is very attractive to the upper market. It is one of the oldest residential areas with the who is who in Kenya. Many homeowners search for houses in this area and that makes the return on investment very good.
