Developers have to recover their money. The cost of a quarter acre in Ruaka is 48-50 million. Add the cost of erecting a fence, perhaps a borehole and high rise apartments. We are looking at 100 million..
Hii bei ya quarter uko sure? Kwani ni Karen?

Ebu weka Weka breakdown vile umefika 100 million

So you are basing your claim on one plot? How about like 3 results of those search results then we get then we get the average.
Also if you read that post that you just sent a screenshot of, you will realise it's already a developed plot. The seller is recouping money for land+ the construction on it. Hata umeandikiwa with enough space for expansion. Now go bring a barren land without any building on it

you shouldn't complain of rent in Nairobi if you haven't lived in Dubai. The houses we leave in here in Nairobi are simply out of reach for most people there. What you pay for is ur bed which will cost as high as 25k/ month for the lower bunk beds and 18k/month for the upper bunk beds.
Dubai and Kenya are two different economies. Puga!!!

Live within your means. Someone asked me the other day how I can pay the rent I pay for my house, when there are way cheaper houses of the same size in other areas. Nilimwambia point blank that what I pay as rent is less than a quarter of my salary. When people agree to live in such overpriced houses, they are not foolish. They know very well that they are paying for peace of mind and convenience. Since I moved into my neighbourhood 4 years ago, I haven't been mugged or gotten into any disagreements with my neighbours. Live within your means and move into houses for the right reasons.
Mimi natumia 1/10 of my salary for rent

Market forces mjamaa, kuna 3br flats in Ngong that are 65k na zona watu, you want the government to tell those tenants that they are waisting their money, then what next, waambie @uwesmake he can only drink one mzinga a month?
Government should try come up with measures that encourage more Dev. of lowly priced houses, sio price controls
I had a chance to visit these two countries.South Africa and Zimbabwe.A house worth 65k in those countires are just too good with proper finishes and well done planned estates.
