There are certain areas that have a unique ability of supporting numerous investment opportunities and Nyamasaria is one such area. Found alongside the busy and recently completed Kisumu-Nairobi road, Nyamasaria location has cut a niche for itself as an ultimate option for investors to pitch tent in land in Kisumu. Recent statistics provided real estate firms show that Nyamasaria has the most enquiries for land to purchase. The formerly dormant area has caught the eyes of investors, both local and foreign who are all rushing to obtain portions of plots within an area that's slowly becoming a town on its own. As a matter of fact, Nyamasaria residents find no reason of going to town because they can buy all they require inside the estate, whether it is food, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels or even clubs.
Its strategic location (alongside the main road) makes it a possible commercial hub. With commercial ventures already occurring within this location, this is definitely a clear indication of the potential vested in this area. Nyamasaria is home to a considerable number of businesses including Ukwala supermarket, Royal city hotel, as well as a petrol station. There are several other small enterprises in the area which are doing perfectly well. With a large number of pieces of plots still found in this prime area, this leaves room for setting up of more business premises.
More individuals are finding Nyamasaria a very good location to inhabit. This calls for construction of more rental units to fit the rising number of people seeking to reside in this area. There's the demand to stretch the estate up to the neighboring Kasule and Manyatta estates due to the reason that the area is growing not big enough for the residents.
This rising number of residents indicates that there is pressure on the available social amenities like dispensaries, hospitals, schools. This is certainly another opportunity for a scheming investor to build such facilities in Nyamasaria and quickly take advantage of the high demand versus the low supply of these facilities. A hospital for example is obviously a most welcome idea and can certainly be highly embraced by local homeowners. More schools too should be built to accommodate the rising number of children in the area who require learning facilities. In line with these is also the requirement for more hostel facilities plus institutions of higher learning. The neighboring Kisumu polytechnic and of course the Nairobi university branch located in megacity are tertiary institutions with an absolute large number of scholars in dire need of hostel facilities and Nyamasaria is the very best spot to offer these accommodation facilities because it is the most immediate estate to these institutions.
Nyamasaria estate, just like most available land in Kisumu is amazingly ideal for farming activities and also cattle keeping. Previous residents have still maintained these practices as some newcomers are embracing agriculture which is doing remarkably in Nyamasaria.
I would therefore urge any investor in search of an investment opportunity in land in Kisumu to give Nyamasaria a try.
