Investing in Nairobi Real Estate

Nairobi is one of those Cities where you find all kinds of properties and where the cost and quality vary hugely from place to place. Traffic Jams, security and mild earthquakes are all characteristics of Nairobi. So there are a number of things to consider before you actually go for investing in Nairobi real estate.

The first thing to consider for investing in Nairobi real estate is to select the place/area for your Nairobi real estate investment. This is more applicable to people who are looking at Nairobi real estate more as an option for leading their life (rather than an investment option). That said, even if you have chosen the region for investing in Nairobi real estate, you need to be careful with selecting the location in that region i.e. the Nairobi real estate piece that will fetch you good profit. Generally, growth of business (e.g. big companies acquiring land for establishing their offices) is an indicator of appreciation in real estate (whether Nairobi real estate or any other). That is the consideration with regards to new developments in Nairobi real estate or with respect to significant changes in the economic situation of a particular place in Nairobi. However, there are always opportunities and they are there everywhere. You just have to hunt those opportunities in order to profitably invest in Nairobi real estate. Post cards, phone call, public auctions, foreclosures etc are all possible opportunities/ways of getting a good deal for Nairobi real estate investment. You could also partner with the local attorneys in the region i.e. attorneys who handle property matters in case of death, divorce, defaults etc. These people can give you good leads on Nairobi real estate investments. In such cases, whoever gets the information first gets the advantage. You can really lay your hands on some good Nairobi real estate deals in this way.

Yes, that does take effort and if you were to think that money can be earned without putting-in even that much effort, I would tend to disagree with you. A small amount of effort can really make a difference of thousands of dollars in terms of the Nairobi real estate deal that you get. Another good idea is to inform your friends in Nairobi that you are looking to buy a piece of Nairobi real estate and, in fact, let everyone know that you are looking for a piece of Nairobi real estate. A very good Nairobi real estate deal might come to you through one of your contacts, you never know.

So with the Nairobi real estate prices rising (as always), investing in Nairobi real estate does seem like a great idea.

Crime Prevention While Traveling

Safety and security are always a concern when you travel. Everyday, travelers venture into large metropolitan cities both domestic and international. No matter where travelers go, they will end up in locations where street crime exists. It is even more prevalent in countries where unemployment, poverty, and overpopulation exist. In some countries, a traveler’s watch can equal a few months salary. Often criminals specifically target travelers if they are women, or because if they carry an expensive equipment, and will often not return to prosecute if the criminal is caught.

A person who travels alone, most likely turns to be a victim of the petty crime. Person travelling alone faces more risks when compared to a person travelling with someone or groups. All over the world, we could see travelers facing crimes. We cannot just say that, travelers are targeted only for their jewels or a lump sum of money. Petty crimes take place even for a penny. The most stolen items are cash, jewels, credit cards, mobile phones, cameras, passports and even sometimes your wardrobes. Criminals are wiser than us. At times, a petty crime may end up in losing lives too. So, it is advisable to travel in groups rather than traveling alone. Though losing our money or other belongings may be a great loss losing a passport is worse. While travelling to countries abroad, passport plays a major role to depict our identity. So, passports have to be kept very safe from getting into the hands of the criminals.

One of the best ways to prevent crime is to visit your own government’s international travel safety information and warnings website. You’ll find up-to-date travel information, details on potential safety issues ranging from pickpocketing to terrorism, even weather warnings. Gather knowledge about latest travel warnings and be alert of your surroundings during your trip. If you are concerned about the safety situation, avoid border cities and unpopulated areas.

When traveling with children, teach them to tell your name, house address and contact numbers, which will be very useful if they get lost or get into the hands of the strangers. But advise them not to pass on this information to casual enquirers or over phone. Don’t leave them alone in crowded places. For toddlers who are yet to communicate clearly, tie an identity tag or card.

In many big cities, you may be approached by strangers asking you your place, your details and so on. Unfortunately, when you travel alone you have to be wary of people and trusting someone you have just met is a risky business. You have to remember that personal safety is a must.

Finally, the important thing is that, travelers should be bold enough to report to the cops, when they are affected by criminals. In many popular destinations, you could find tourist police who can help you. Don’t get panic in disastrous situations. Traveling not only involves handling risky situations, but also contains lot of delightful experiences.
