The Real Estate Association of Rwanda (REAR)

Rwanda is emerging as a major hub for real estate business and attracted international property developers mainly due to the country’s ever growing demand for housing that now stands at 250,000 housing units per year and continuous economic growth

The Real Estate Association of Rwanda (REAR) was created as an overseer of real estate agency/brokerage companies, consultancy real estate firms, and real estate agency /brokerage professionals in Rwanda.  REAR membership currently stands at 42 members.

The key role of REAR include advocacy for professionalism, stimulate business cooperation as well as establish business code of conduct among other things. REAR also  conducts   capacity building workshop and training for the members

The Association membership include  valuers in the private and public sector, estate managers, mortgage officers, real estate investment advisors and many others.

The greatest challenge facing REAR is the existence of unlicensed quack brokers and lack of professionalism amongst the practitioners

Mortgage Finance in Rwanda

One major constraint to the development of the real estate in Rwanda is lack of mortgage finance at reasonable rate of interest. In 2012, it was estimated that 96.2% of households in Rwanda had no access to housing finance. There has been a clear increase in the provision of mortgage finance since 2004 with the current supply of mortgage finance estimated between RWF 64.7 and RWF 84 billion. The numbers of banks offering mortgage finance have also slightly increased in number.
