Kangundo road Koma roack area is approximately 13 km form the Nairobi CBD, making it easily accesible by Nairobi city workers.
The Koma rock that is 13 km is different from the actual Koma rock, located near Kangundo town, 60 km from the Nirobi CBD. The 60km town called Koma has an actual rock hence the name Koma rock.
Koma Rock estate is named after the rock.
Plots in Komarock area are mostly 30 ft by 70ft in size. This very small unit enables people to easily access them through savings since most of them do not have title deeds hence not acquired through bank loans where the title deed becomes part of collateral.
Plot owners thereafter build vertically, 4 to 6 floors high so as to make use of available vertical space. Each plot can have 4 bedsitters per floor. For 5 floor levels, this makes is 20 bedsitter. The average bedsitter rent is kes 8000. This brings a total income of kes 160,000. This gives a return on investment of 6 years, which is very good for rental units hence a good investment.
