If you have not spent a lot of time in Kenya, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Kenya can be a great investment, as property values are likely to appreciate over time. However, it is important to consider the costs associated with buying a home, such as the down payment, closing costs, and ongoing maintenance. Renting a home in Kenya can be a more affordable option, as it requires less upfront costs and allows for more flexibility in terms of location and length of stay. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Kenya should be based on your individual needs and financial situation," said another expat in Kenya.
