SuCasa hosts real estate sales opportunity confab for young people


SuCasa Properties Limited, a real estate developer, has hosted its maiden real estate sales opportunity conference in Accra with a call on young people to develop interests in the construction value chain.

The conference, on the theme ‘Real estate sales, solution to youth unemployment, according to SuCasa was organised to expose young people to opportunities in the construction value chain.

The event also opened the discourse on real estate sales through the Real Estate Agency Act, 2020 (Act, 1047) framework.

Speaking at the conference, SuCasa’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael O’grantson-Agyapong, said youth unemployment can be solved if pragmatic methods are adopted, as the real sector has many job prospects for young people.

He emphasised that the youth must be passionate about research in areas that can never be exhausted of opportunities.

“The real estate and housing sector have opportunities that must interest young people in the value chain. You just have to find what you can do in the chain and take it up as a business,” he said.

Mr. O’grantson-Agyapong indicated opportunities in the value chain for young people include design, painting, interior decoration and digital marketing, among several other prospects.

Chief of Staff-SuCAsa, Isaac Preko, said the company has been at the forefront of providing affordable housing to the Ghanaian public, while at the same time making sure that quality remains the hallmark of SuCasa.

He said the company, which started as a small real estate entity, has expanded its operations over the years to solve the growing housing deficit through the provision of affordable homes at several communities in the capital.

“Our way of solving the growing housing deficit challenge has been the roll-out of O’grantson communities across the country, where we have completed 90 percent of the first community which has 17 homes; the second community has about 55 homes with 70 percent completion; and the upcoming Ayi Mensah development has 80 units,” Mr. Preko disclosed.

Executive Secretary of the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA), Samuel Amegayibor, commended SuCasa for engaging the youth in such a high profile conference and offering them an opportunity to develop interest in the sector.

“The value chain in real estate is so huge. Young people can trade in materials needed in the sector or acquire soft skills that are required, including marketing and sales,” he said.

Mr. Amegayibor encouraged SuCasa to continue making housing affordable for the average Ghanaian.
