Housing in Nairobi

Housing in Nairobi Kenya only meets twenty percent in supply. This means that there is a threshold of up
to eighty percent in housing that has not been met. As a result, the demand for affordable and quality
housing is on the rise.
This being the case, the Kenyan government has set up policies to help improve the housing problem in
Kenya. Amongst these policies is the establishment of the Kenya Mortgage Refinance Company (KMRC).
This is a public-private partnership aimed at providing long-term funding to primary mortgage lenders.
Additionally, has also included waived stamp duty fees on houses costing less than Ksh. 500,000. The
reduction is from 4% to 2%. However, there is much more to be done and at Alif Homes, we have taken
the initiative to provide affordable and quality housing in Nairobi.
There are ways in which we have achieved this. We have enforced government subsidies to help offset
the costs of building affordable housing units. This has been applicable in different ways which include
the tax incentives to developers by the government when building properties.
