Since 2017, Yabah Properties & Investment Ghana Limited, a wholly Ghanaian company has tasked itself to providing affordable housing to the lower and middle-income earners in Ghana, and help ordinary Ghanaians retire into their own homes peacefully.
This well-thought vision, has been the heartburn of the company, seeing the increasing lag of housing deficit in Ghana. With a deficit of 1.7 million, and realistically quite more, building a home, or acquiring a house, has become and continues to be the preserve of the rich and wealthy, the privileged few in Ghanaian society, whiles the greater majority of Ghanaians battle with acquiring a piece of plot with life-long litigations.
With this alarming housing and land litigation conundrum in Ghana, and the inability of the ordinary Ghanaian to acquire or build their own homes, Yabah Properties & Investment Ghana Limited have since 2017, championed the development of quality and affordable housing in gated communities, on duly registered and certified lands, giving homeowners their peace of mind.
In addition, Yabah Properties in partnership with various stakeholders, including the National Housing & Mortgage Fund, under the Ministry of Finance, and the Republic Bank, have fashioned out a Government Assisted Mortgage Scheme for all Public Sector and Civil Service workers. This flexible GoG Assisted Mortgage Scheme makes payment for the houses very convenient and allows home-owners to pay for their houses on monthly installment basis of up to 20 years.
Currently, Yabah Properties is developing 650 housing units in a well-planned gated community with needed social infrastructure such as police station, shopping centers, a school, electricity and water, a recreational area, to make life comfortable and convenient to residents. This estate, Yabah Estate is located at Jei Krodua, Kasoa, on the Bawdjiase road.
With this supporting scheme, Yabah Properties has provided houses for countless Public Sector and Civil Service workers including teachers, nurses, local government workers, the police, military, Ghana Armed Forces, employees of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), medical practitioners, etc.
It is in this regards that Yabah Properties & Investment Ghana Limited has been Awarded the OUTSTANDING REAL ESTATE COMPANY OF THE YEAR 2020 (LOWER & MIDDLE INCOME), by the Ghana Business Standard Awards, held at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, Ghana, last Friday, Ocotber 16, 2020.
In the words of the CEO, Clement Nyamson, he would want to see all Ghanaians retire into their own homes.
