This article provides a summary of the real estate markets in Africa that provide investors with previously overlooked opportunities that offer big rewards.

According to the Real Estate 2020: Building the future report issued by global PWC, the six predictions on African real estate are:

  • The global investible real estate universe will expand substantially, leading to a huge expansion in opportunity, especially in emerging economies;
  • Fast-growing cities will present a wider range of risk and return opportunities;
  • Technology innovation and sustainability will be key drivers for value;
  • Collaborating with governments will become more important;
  • Competition for prime assets will intensify further; and
  • A broad range of risks, including new risks, will emerge.

It is expected that the fastest growing African property markets will correlate closely with population growth. Just in case you are not familiar with the cities, now would be a good time to get your atlas to identify the country. If you’re like us, you already know your onions 🙂

Below is a list of the fastest growing cities in percentage terms.
