It is no secret that location influences purchase decision for a property searcher. This is what we have put together a renter’s guide to prime Accra. This guide highlights what you as property searchers need to think about when choosing a rental property and to help you navigate prime Accra’s rental market successfully.
1. Commute time: You need to consider how long it will take you to travel from your rental to home, work or school. You can use google to find the average travel time between the property you want to rent to your home, work, school and other amenities that are important to you.
2. Alternate transportation: If you do not own a car, is being close to the main road important to you? You need to consider the proximity of transport to your rental and how easy it is to get a taxi or a bus to your destination. With Uber being available now, you don’t necessarily have to worry too much about your proximity to transport sources.
3. Register with an estate agent: It’s common to have the best properties that come on the market to be rented out immediately before they are even posted online. This is why we recommend that you register with an estate agent you can trust and not just rely on the internet to find property. Registration gives you exclusive access to properties before they are put online.
4. Be prepared: Prime Accra’s rental market is fast paced; this means you need to act quickly to secure the property you want. Do not sit on a decision too long else to risk losing the property to someone else.
