Mombasa Real Estate: Coastal Living
The coast region holds the second largest city in Kenya, Mombasa. The city is identified by the Mombasa Tusks, built in 1952 to commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth. The town is the administrative headquarters of the coastal region and it is separated from the mainland by two creeks; Tudor creek to the west and Kilindini Harbour to the south. An aerial view of the island would reveal a breathtakingly beautiful scenery and the separation of the island and mainland can be seen clearly. The isle is connected to the rest of the land by the Nyali Bridge to the north, Likoni Ferry to the south and Makupa causeway to the west.
This is where you will find areas like Kongowea, Nyali, and Bamburi. These towns are the most popular and well known in the North Coast. Other places include; Shanzu, Mkomani, Bombolulu, Kisauni, and across the Mtwapa creek. The prime areas in North coast are Nyali and Kisingo, where you will find the up-market house for sale in Mombasa and the best apartments in Mombasa. The State House and Mombasa golf club are located in Kizingo.
Tudor and Ganjoni are primarily middle-class residential areas with homes and commercial properties. Magongo, Mikindani, and Miritini are outlying townships. Those are the main accommodation areas for the working class, especially to those who are working in the heavy industrial sections of Changamwe.

The Property Market
Prime land in Mombasa is up for grabs as a property boom. The cost of land and residential property in prime sections of Mombasa has nearly doubled in the past years. High-rise buildings are replacing stand-alones as old Nyali residents sell their homes to new developers. Others have moved to larger areas where there is more privacy.
Apartments are also popular among young professionals, especially from Nairobi and those in the diaspora seeking to own property in the country. The ready-flats are convenient since it is difficult for developers from abroad to supervise construction. The congestion and the need to accommodate a fast-growing population in Mombasa have opened new markets for real estate developers. Market analysts say investors are scrambling for all available space in the coastal city to satisfy growing demand for housing.
At Jumia House, you can find a wide selection of properties around Mombasa, for instance, houses, apartments commercial properties, and plots for sale in Mombasa that are waiting for their perfect tenant or owner.
