joint venture & finance structuring
As a company that is poised centrally in the market, we have been able to bring the benefits of real estate development to wider groups through joint venture arrangements and financial structures that create syndicates of development groups.
Our joint venture structures in particular have been highly successful in pairing owners of land that has latent potential with developers who undertake the process of real estate development, forming a structure that offers healthy returns to both the landowner and the developer. This has propelled activity in the real estate market as it offers landowners a turn-key package whilst granting developers access to prime land parcels for development in a structure of low capital investment.
Our financial syndicates are structured to bring together medium-sized investors looking to enter into the real estate development field. With developments that are fully managed by our in-house team, these investors have been able to garner high-yielding returns on investment without the day-to-day involvement of real estate development.
development concept &
The success of a development is decided at its planning and inception stages, where market dynamics are studied to ascertain the demand gaps within the market which, if correctly targeted, will result in high levels of end user uptake, this being a prerequisite for a successful development.
Given HassConsult owns the country’s largest property and land datasets, we deploy data driven approaches to establishing market gaps within every suburb in order to perfectly align projects to the market. This has resulted in HassConsult recording some of the highest development uptake in the market, even in economic downturns.

HassConsult is committed to the quarterly publication of The Hass Property Index.
This has proven over the last decade to be an important tool providing investors, home owners, the financial industry and consumers with current and historical information about house price inflation- allowing them to make informed decisions in the housing market, in order to enjoy the best possible returns.
We believe the index has also helped us all to understand far better the Kenyan real estate market, the urban residential market - and by extension, some of the dynamics within the Kenyan economy. In our experience, the best decisions are made with the clearest possible information. It is by working to flag within the market what is rising, and what falling, that we can do the most in ensuring funds are directed towards the properties that are currently most needed and most sought, particularly making the case for more affordable housing which is trending and now widely available.
We have a research team of 16 experts which includes a dedicated field research team powered by our own bespoke data collection application. We have produced numerous research reports for some of Kenya’s largest property development projects.
