Estimated Cost Of Building Standard 3 Bedroom House In Ghana

Welcome home my dear friend.

For your information real estate in Ghana now is booming and this is a signal that the developers of these estates are enjoying massive financial earnings, but one question that has not been answered very well by these developers is that are they inflating the prices of their houses or are they giving us the right price for the house?

Hahahaha. Sounds very hilarious.

Well, apparently the question will be ignored by these developers because the prices of their houses are for sale on the market in dollars and comparing the dollar to the cedi it tells us that one will have to have massive income in order to buy such houses, one will also argue that the price of the land where such houses are built are very expensive therefore individuals who are willing to leave in luxury houses and also in the city where you are close to Accra mall, the airport, and most of the residential areas should consider the prices of such lands.

A simple 3 bedroom house in east legon will go for 300,000 dollars and that is the least price you can get in the area with no swimming pool.

A five bedroom house in Accra airport residential area with swimming pool will also go for one million dollars

In this article, we will offer you the Estimated cost of Building a 3 bedroom Bungalow in Ghana.

As i have said, this is only an estimate.

You are also to bear in mind that this estimate is likely to change because of the increase and decrease in cost of materials in the market.

As a result, a few changes may have occurred in terms of price.

What are the Specs Of 3 Bedroom Flat In Ghana?

For a 3 bedroom bungalow, here are the few elements and their dimensions

A 3 Bedrooms of 3600mm x 3600mm in size, 3 toilets ( each in every room), a nice kitchen consisting of a store, a dining room, a living room

What is the Amount On Foundation?

Here, i will talk about the amount of money you would need to set up the foundation of a 3 bedroom bungalow

Setting out will cost about 310 Ghana cedis

Excavation will cost like GH¢ 614

Foundation Footings = GH¢ 930

Foundation Wall = GH¢ 3100

German Concrete = GH¢ 6,144

Total Cost For Foundation will be approximately GH¢ 11,100 (It May not be upto this in some location please)

The Next Stage Is Super Structure

Block work (3m High) = GH¢ 10,800 (If You are Buying Blocks)

Now it is time to finish the building so you will get ready to move your stuff inside.

Rendering (Plastering) = GH¢6,200
