EXAMPLE 1.

LAND OWNER DEVELOPING 2 HOUSES ON A 1/8TH ACRE FOR SALE.

From DIAMOND HOUSE V 2.5

Assumption: Land cost 1/8th acre-KES 1m.
Construction cost for 2 one-bed roomed phase 1 diamond house type houses within 1/8th acre –KES 2.45m per unit.

SALE PRICE

The average cost of a 100m2 3 bed roomed house in Nairobi Outskirts is KES 5m.
The a4architect.com Diamond House phase 1-one bed roomed unit is 49m2.
This translates to a cost of 2.75m per unit to achieve the desirable profit margin.

 

There will be 2 units in the 1/8th acre plot. This totals to KES 5.5m for both houses.

In this example, it’s assumed that the land owner borrows all money for construction hence pays back the bank for the full amount. The amount borrowed from the bank can be reduced proportionately if the land owner can add on to the costs through personal savings.

This will result in a higher profit.
