It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for.” – Robert Kiyosaki.
If you’re a millionaire but do not invest wisely, you’ve gained nothing. You need to grow and protect your investment portfolio by carefully diversifying it. By doing this, you may find yourself funding many generations to come. If you’re in the Diaspora you have a great opportunity to invest back home. Below are a few pointers of what we would like you to know about investing in real estate back home.
Kenyans in the diaspora are now the biggest senders of digital remittances to mobile accounts back home. According to CBK Governor Patrick Njoroge, remittances by Kenyans living outside the country are a major earner.
As of March 2021, Kenyans in the Diaspora had remitted over 31.2 billion (US$ 290.8 million) back home, with it now accounting for 4% of our GDP. This could possibly be the country’s largest source of foreign exchange earnings.
Fear of swindling claims
Real estate continues to grow in leaps and bounds and this can be attributed to the fact that Kenyan citizens living abroad can buy a home at the click of a button.
If not for conmen, every single Kenyan living abroad would already have invested money back home. The challenge lies in the fact that there are so many fraudulent ghost companies ready to reap where they didn’t sow.
The most important lesson for Kenyans living abroad to learn is to work with trusted banks and credible real estate agents.
