Real Estate is a serious business that is thriving here in Ghana too and due to their significance, we take a look at some top real estate companies in Ghana. But before we go into the list, let’s first understand what real estate is and how such companies can be useful to you.
What Is Real Estate?
According to Wikipedia, “Real Estate is property consisting of land and the buildings on it, along with its natural resources such as crops, minerals or water. It is however important to note that, Real estate is different from personal property which is not permanently attached to the land.
Personal properties such as cars, boats, jewelry, furniture or tools etc are not considered as Real Estate.
Types Of Real Estate
Real Estate has been grouped or classified into different types based on its purpose or use. The four main types of real estate that is often used are I) Land II) Residential III) Commercial IV) Industrial
A brief explanation will be given below in order to understand what each type of real estate is about.
- LAND; there cannot be real estate without land. This is because it is the baseline for any type of real property. Developers usually buy raw or vacant land at reduced prices for future development. Once they build on the land, the value of the property increases.
- RESIDENTIAL; this type of real estate involves housing for individuals, families or groups of people. The residential real estate market is very huge and is the most common type of estate. This is because every now and then people are looking for an apartment to buy or rent. There are also categories of residents which include single-Family houses, apartments, condominiums, townhomes, duplex etc.
- COMMERCIAL; the market for commercial real estate is not as huge and common like the residential. This is because not everyone needs or will need a place to buy or rent for commercial/business purposes. Commercial real estate, simply put is property used for business/commercial purposes.
- INDUSTRIAL; Industrial real estate is similar to that of commercial real estate. It refers to the buildings and land that is used for industrial purposes like construction, manufacturing, storage warehouse etc.
