Dr. Wilfred K. Anim-Odame, a Senior Technical Advisor at the National Development Planning Commission in Ghana and former Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Lands Commission has launched a comprehensive book on the real estate market in Ghana.
Aptly titled ‘The Real Estate Market in Ghana’ launched, the book seeks to fill the information gap on a key emerging real estate market and demystify the perception that the market in Ghana is opaque. Drawing on decades of experience from within the market, Dr. Anim-Odame, presents a detailed examination of the real estate market in Ghana and its existing regulatory framework.
The book focuses on seven thematic areas – land administration, legal perspective& market dynamic& investment potential and market competitiveness, valuation and compensation.
This book will be a useful resource for students, academia, practitioners, real estate developer and investors and professional advisors such as valuers, surveyors, lawyers, accountants, bankers, architects, planners and engineers.
An important feature of this book is the way in which chapters are self-contained, and yet follow logically. One from another, with this approach readers can choose a reading path appropriate to their own specific needs without a loss of continuity.
