Uncompleted Houses w/ Land for Sale @ Gbetsile (Greater Accra Region)

Image
Recently my lil homey Latif got the scoop on some uncompleted houses for sale in a part of Greater Accra known as Gbetsile.  Moreover the sales' package includes the land upon which the houses are situate.  In other words if you purchase the house then you get the piece of land underneath it also.  And there are three houses in total, located in a gated community.  Additionally each individual house, with its land, cost GH¢65,000 - or $11,400 in American currency. This is what we refer to as development real estate.  The fact that the foundation and other parts of the house are already built (as shown in the pics) saves the buyer the cost and hassle of having to do so on their own.  That is to say that they can just finish what the original builders have already started. Gbetsile is a part of the Greater Accra Region that some people may not have heard of.  I've never been there myself, but looking at it on Google Earth the most-general way to describe its location is as being o…

Boyant Engineering Services (Elevator Installations in Ghana)

Image
A couple of days ago I found myself in a hospital in Ashaiman that had an elevator.  Honestly it's been years since I've seen an elevator, and I was even saying to one of the workers there like 'wow, an elevator'.Meanwhile, elevators are not what one would define as a recent technological development.  Indeed the owner of any structure that is at least three-storeys high should at least contemplate installing an elevator in the building.  Under such circumstances they are in fact necessary for the elderly, handicapped and infirmed.  Moreover you wouldn't want small children climbing up and down staircases on their own.And even as we speak, I live on a third storey.  Sometimes when carrying luggage or a lot of bags, I don't necessarily feel like traversing flights of stairs so burdened.  And yes, there will always be that person who says things like 'but it's good exercise'.  Yet what they fail to realize is that elevators are a staple of modern soci…

GHfind Music, GHfind News Being Put on Indefinite Hiatus

About a month ago I launched a new division of GHfind called GHfind MusicThat decision was driven more by the desire to create a venue for underground Ghanaian artists to make dough rather than profiting myself.  However things have not gone as idealized, as viewership to GHfind Music has been sparse.  Moreover it requires a time and resource commitment which, as circumstances have evolved, I am not presently willing to dedicate.  So for the time being, I figure it would be best to put GHfind Music on hold.  Indeed these days there appears to be sites popping up everywhere featuring innumerable musicians and their songs.  But that being said I'll still try to find a way to promote the artist, Tempo Music, I had featured on GHfind Music though more through the main site, not a subdomain.And along those same lines I've also decided to dead GHfind News.  All things considered, GHfind News was my personal favorite aspect of GHfind, as working on it kept me abreast with headline…

Land for Sale @ University of Environment & Sustainable Development (Update)

Image
Recently I was fortunate enough to get the scoop on some land for sale within the direct vicinity of the University of Environment & Sustainable Development (UESD), which was just commissioned by the President of Ghana less than two weeks ago.As it stands now most of the land surrounding UEDS, i.e. the selfsame plots which are for sale via JoeTex Farms, are either mango farms or bush.  Those in the know would recognize that this is a ripe business opportunity.  For it is inevitable that within the next few years hostels, eateries and perhaps even more (i.e. mini malls) will popup in the area.If you want a recent example of what I'm talking about, take a look at the community surrounding the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) in Madina.  What was once a relatively-bland area is now highlighted by high-rise student hostels, premiere shops and some of the best restaurants/supermarkets in that part of Accra.  So at the end of the day, by all means some savvy businessperson(…
