This page shows the listings of properties and apartment for rent in Accra. It also shows the factors, points, guidelines, and advice to consider when looking for houses in Osu, Dansoman, East Legon, Spintex and the other small towns in Accra.
Deciding whether to rent a furnished apartment or unfurnished houses sometimes become very tedious and tiresome for most people. Especially when you work from 8 am to 5 pm and the only time you might have to go round with agents will be weekends.
By the way, before we delve into scenario, the following infographic depicts more about the current rates and prices of rentals and sales of houses in Ghana.
For expatriates or the non-natives, it becomes hectic. With no knowledge of the right neighbourhood or suitable environment or even the distance and proximity to the job location, they might want to live.
If you are a business person, who doesn't have the luxury of time to go round looking for the best spot or property for your suitability, you might consider the following information.
In other to find the best and suitable apartment, house or property for lease or hire in Accra, you must consider these steps.
Normally, big mansions for rent or large apartments should have more room and space for roaming, large halls, banquets, large living rooms and large bedrooms. These spaces are important when considering moving in with children, friends, neighbours and even pets. Smaller apartments might not include these spaces but have extra space for balcony, porch or veranda.
Parking space is very important to consider. Some listed properties for rent have this feature. If a parking lot or garage is part of your renting requisite list, then you must consider an extra budget for your rent. It might also be possible to rent a house with no garage but with front end space enough for parking and safe from burglars.
Leasing a mansion or a self-contained house, as termed by the Ghanaian society, you might have your privacy and peaceful environment when the property or house isolate itself and is walled with the neighbouring houses located a little bit far from your location.
However, if you are leasing a complex apartment, flats, or portable houses in an estate, you might find your privacy to be disturbed by adjacent neighbours in the apartments, or you might share social amenities like playing grounds or parking lots with neighbours.
You must also consider maintenance budget when renting big houses with gardens and other amenities like swimming pools and green grass. If you are considering renting complex apartments or small houses or flats, the high cost of maintenance may not be a factor.
With renting bigger mansions in Ghana, the current renting cost ranges from $1000 per month to $4000. Apartments for rent ranges from $120 dollars to $3500. And these prices might increase or decrease depending on the Geographical location in Accra. Places like Trasaco estates, Spintex, Shiashie, East Legon, West Legon and Regimanuel might cost high than places like Dansoman, North Legon, North Kaneshie, Osu, Cantonment, Dzorwulu, Labadi and others.
The Ghanaian people are grouped into about 7 ethnic groups, 47.5% Akans, 16.6% Dagbani / Mole, 13.9% Ewe,7.4% Ga-Adangbe,5.7% Gurma,3.7% Guan / Gonja, 2.5% Gurunsi,1.1% Bissa / Mande,1.6% Others. Some locations like the Spintex, East Legon, and the centre parts of Accra are mixed with these ethnic groups. There are also some Accra outskirts like Dansoman, where you might find the Ga's dominating and other Accra towns like Nima, where you might find Moslems living in Zongo areas.
Considering the locality or the location of where you want to live, you might also consider the type of ethnic groups, you might be mingling with. Since Accra is a native of the Ga's, you might be communicating with Ga's or the dominated language, Akan.
Finding the right design house for rent requires a little knowledge of house plans, floor plans, a taste in home design or you might contact an architect or a craftsman to show you various design. However, since the renter has no choice of influencing the type of design he or she might prefer, it is essential to check the images of submitted rental property listings for a preferred choice.
Some of the Ghanaian types of houses to consider getting in Ghana for rent include single room house types, chamber and hall house types, detached, semi-detached or self-contained houses, apartment flats and townhouses.

There are also other smaller or portable house designs which have the architecture of 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms, 4 bedroom or even 7 to 24 bedroom houses respectively.
Deciding to rent in Ghana also requires the knowledge of the types of rooms allocated or built in Ghana.

They might also be built with a kitchen and a small porch attached to it. They might either be isolated with their own compound or built and attached to a bigger house or apartment with multiple single room self-contains in it.
The average single room self-contain cost from GHS150 to GHS500 and GHS600 depending on the area or location. The price goes up when the location is a highly economical neighbourhood. Some of these high neighbourhoods are East Legon, Dzorwulu, Osu, Labone, Roman Ridge, West Legon, Agbelempe and others.
Chamber and Hall or Chamber and Hall Self Contain as the name says explains it. This is the type of room that has a chamber which is the bedroom and the hall which is the living room. Chamber and Hall with self-contain has an extra toilet and bath and if lucky or requested by choice, will comprise of porch and kitchen.
In Ghana, when you rent or lease chamber and hall, you might be living in a compound with other tenants or neighbours sharing the same space like compound and apartment together. There might be exceptions of isolated chamber and halls self-contain built for rent or lease but prices for rent might be higher than the ones shared with other tenants.

Some 2 Bedroom Self-Contain might be attached with a toilet and bath to the master bedroom only. Others might have these amenities attached to both bedrooms so visitors can use the extra one. These type of rooms are built as a full house with other comfort benefits. They might also be walled and gated but in a small or portable land or attached with other apartments or estates.
The average prices for renting 2 Bedrooms Self-Contain in Ghana ranges from GHS1000 to GHS1500 and as high as GHS3000 to GHS4000 depending on the economic strengths of that location.
3 Bedrooms to 10 Bedrooms are built either in an apartment, full house, storey building or mansion. In Ghana, these type of houses are built exclusively for big families or companies and are either gated and walled or not. They are mostly and always built with toilet and baths in each room and also with kitchen, porch or veranda and spacious for parking, compounds and other amenities.

The following steps will speed up the process and time to find the perfect home or property to rent.
Before looking for the right Agent or searching online, draft down a personal rental budget. Determine the highest amount you are prepared to pay for your house or apartment a month. Determine the least amount you will pay. Also, consider the minimum payment with your choice of class and type of Geographical location and environment in mind. This is because some locations in Accra have a high cost of rent than other places.
Apart from the normal bedroom, living-room and dining, ask you whether you might want a specific feature, place, outdoor, parking lot, type of design, neighbourhood, or the environment you want. Other possible questions you might ask include whether you need a bigger bathroom, environment with bigger trees, no noise environment, or even the type of material used for building like Brickhouse, block or wood.
Draft down your daily and weekly activities. Check out your hobbies, place of work, and usual places like restaurants, church or even recreational activities you might need. Then find areas and locations that might have such amenities to your satisfaction. This will help you to not spend more transportation cost when going to such places.
Decide on the duration you are prepared to rent. Are you going to rent the place for 2 years, 3 years, 5 years and above? This is because most Ghanaian landlords charge from 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years upwards.
You have selected your suitable environment, arrived at your final budget and chosen your type of design. Now the last thing to do is to determine your approval processes. Processes like background check of the environment or house owner, leasing terms and negotiating to landlords for a better price or a special feature. This approach is very important because it closes the deal for the leasing contract.
Most landlords take part payments or deposit to lock you the client to the deal or leasing contract. Make sure to take receipts and any other required document needed for the initial transaction .
