“As Ethiopia’s property market matures, high-end real estate is increasingly in demand. At the same time, prices here remain low comparative to many of our neighbors, making Ethiopia the most affordable place to buy luxury real estate anywhere in the world,” said Wunmi Osholake, Lamudi’s Ethiopia Managing Director

“In recent months, we have seen a number of luxury developments announced, including the 21-tower project from Chinese developer Sinomark Real Estate, which will be the country’s biggest real estate project to date. We expect to see more developers launch projects in this price bracket in the coming years.”
