Buying Property in the Gambia

The Gambia is a well known holiday destination, best known for its year round sunshine, friendly English speaking people and miles and miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. What most tourists do not realise is that the Gambia is also one of the fastest growing economies in Africa, attracting massive inward investment, not just in the tourist sector but also in terms of banking and general trade.

Gambia has a stable, democratic and effective government which has been focused on rapidly developing the countries infrastructure and building an up-market tourist economy. Crime levels are low even by European standards. Power, water, telecommunications and banking are approaching the European norm and European building regulations now apply.

The Gambia is a safe place and a good place to invest. It now has a growing European population made up of tourists, business people, second home owners and many people who have decided to escape the cold and retire in the sun. Property prices are on the increase, but they are still very low relative to what you would expect to pay in Spain or Gran Canaria (which is only an hour away by plane). There is a lot of choice, from grand mansions set in their own grounds to holiday flats or empty land where you can build the house of your dreams.

We endeavour to ensure that all legalities as set by Gambian law are met in relation to your property. So if your buy, sell or rent through us you can be sure of a successful transaction with out any nasty surprises.
