“There is no place like home, home sweet home, when I go south west east and north, I will always come back home,” these were the words of the late Nigerian Reggae Gospel legend Evi-Edna Ogholi in her song titled “No place like home” in 1988. One would wonder why such a quote to begin with, this is because shelter is a basic need of every man.
This underscores how important it is for every man to own a decent home and which the Ghanaian is not an exception.
History will tell us how housing has been a concern of the state since independence which led to the establishment of the Tema Development Corporation and the State Housing Corporation by the first President of Ghana and the subsequent entry of many investors in the real estate industry after the collapse of Kwame Nkrumah’s communist government. This witnessed many entries into the Ghanaian real estate industry by both Ghanaians and multinational investors.
