At Southgate Homes, We consider anyone outside the borders of Kenya in Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East to be a diaspora Investor whether you are out for studies, work or are a permanent residence in another country but are a Kenyan Citizen.
We aspire to provide customized first-class property management services for individual and corporate clients.
Today more than ever, Kenyans living or working abroad are investing heavily back at home, especially in real estate. Most leave their properties under the watch of relatives or neighbors who are busy and often overwhelmed by their own affairs leading to losses, unaccountability and misreporting.
We offer a tailor-made package for accountable management of such properties that include property inspection, letting, tenant liaison, rental collection, monthly reporting and property maintenance.
One of the most profitable ways to invest and utilize your property is by renting out to people who will pay you monthly to occupy the apartment.
With this investment, your tenants get to just wire money into your accounts even as you continue working in the diaspora.
This will only require one to make occasional visits to the properties whenever they are in the country.

We allow you to stagger your payments in a manner that ensures you maintain your liquidity throughout the construction period. Most developers charge only a 10% deposit and permit the home buyers to settle the 90% during construction which takes between 24 and 36 months. This eases the burden of raising capital, allowing you to plan your finances.
Your apartment will increase in value as construction progresses. By completion, it will be valued at a higher price than you bought it for, granting you significant capital gains.
With Off plan, you are assured of everything being brand new. This means you will not incur any maintenance costs in the immediate future, thereby saving you costs in the long run.
In case you are buying property as an investment, brand new homes also attract tenants who are often willing to pay a premium to live in new spaces which translates to more rental income.
Buying off plan with Southgate Homes Ltd grants you the advantage of securing some updates on your apartment in the pre-construction phase. Developers can allow changes in the unit layout, and you can determine finishes in advance, such as your home’s color scheme, fittings, and your preferred type of furniture. With off plan, you also get first pick, you can choose the orientation of your apartment, to your liking.
