Houses for Rent in Ghana

Finding a house to rent in Ghana is as easy as visiting - the country’s ultimate property website - and browsing through over 5,000 quality homes actively searching for tenants. It’s that easy.

Seekers who know exactly what they’re looking for can easily manipulate the search filters to key in on relevant and timely options. Uncertain seekers, on the other hand, can quickly browse through different affordable houses for rent in Ghana or luxury accommodation with all the finery to be expected.

Affordable housing is relative, who defines it and what are the parameters for defining it? It’s near impossible to define what affordable housing means to different people who hail from different economic backgrounds. Instead, a look at the price ranges and average costs of rent in some top cities and neighbourhoods in Ghana should help seekers determine what is affordable or not.

Average Rent Costs

See below for average costs of rent for properties in Accra based on the number of bedrooms. This is based on data collected by in 2017.

  • 1 bedroom house rent costs - GHS1,266.39
  • 2 bedroom house rent costs - GHS2,710.46
  • 3 bedroom house rent costs - GHS6,939.79
  • 4 bedroom house rent costs - starting from GHS15,261.88

While knowing the average rent costs of houses is useful, it is not enough to get a clear picture of how much you should have to acquire a rental property. A price range - lowest to highest - comes in handy.

It’s important to note that, many of the properties that might be considered affordable by you are considered cheap by real estate agents as well and as a result, are not marketed online as much as pricier ones.

Below are various price ranges per month for homes for rent in different parts of Ghana. This data was gathered on November 16, 2018.
