Ghanaian property consultant advises Ghanaians on renting or buying a house in Ghana
In an earlier story, YEN.com.gh wrote about how a Ghanaian real estate expert advised Ghanaians about acquiring property. People often make mistakes when looking for homes, resulting in substantial financial losses.
Most of these errors can be avoided but are usually made by first-time purchasers who lack prior real estate knowledge.
