Competitive Advantage

We shall use local materials in vast quantities such as baked bricks and other new building technologies to build all the houses. And our prices will be reasonable to meet the average pocket of Ghanaians who falls mainly in the lower to middle and high income groups.

Our advantage is sustainable because of the flexible mortgage financing we will make available to our clients which will be based on a new model of rent-pay-own property base which is non-existent in the country.

Rationale for the deal

Our current opportunities are vast for now due to the high demand for affordable houses which stands at a gap of over 1.5 million.

The Housing Business will rise sharply due to the ever increasing population growth, future infrastructure developments and increasing craze of Ghanaians for good living.

We will make money through the direct/outright sale, rent and mortgage of the properties.

We have been in this area for more than 10 years and continue to count.
