Terms of references: Housing Rental Market Study Cameroon

Both housings for ownership and rental are in high demand and opportunities for rental accommodation are increasing. Because supply increasingly lags demand, there has been at least a 10 percent year-on-year increase in rentals. On average, it takes up to one month to find quality housing in Douala, Yaoundé, and other main cities. A growing number of real estate companies are providing buying and rental services to clients. However, these services remain essentially available to households with a relatively high-income profile. The challenge is to provide housing for the growing and urbanising population, almost half of which live in informal dwellings and settlements.

With the aim of stimulating the development of the housing rental market that is more responsive to household needs, resources, and spending habits, the Center for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF) conducted the same study in countries like Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal (HRMS). The HRMS identifies, analyses, and presents various existing data sources that provide information on the housing rental market value chain in Cameroon. In addition, it investigates various research methods to enable the finding of solutions that could appear during the development of the study. The research aims to build a data-set on the housing rental market in Cameroon (in the main cities) by assessing qualitative and quantitative indicators along the national housing rental markets value chain.
