What advice to expats in Nairobi have about housing?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Nairobi about the social scene there, they described it saying...

"Expats in Nairobi recommend researching the area you are interested in living in before committing to a rental agreement. It is important to be aware of the security situation in the area and to make sure that the property is in a safe and secure location. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the property is well maintained and that the landlord is reliable. It is also recommended to visit the property in person before signing a rental agreement to ensure that it meets your needs. Finally, it is important to be aware of the cost of living in Nairobi, as it can be quite expensive," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Nairobi, Kenya.

"It s best if your company or employer provides housing...if not gated communities are a safer idea," commented one expat who made the move to Nairobi, Kenya.
