Scores of patrons who thronged the Ecobank JoyNews Habitat Fair mini clinic at the Achimota Mall over the weekend, have expressed immense satisfaction with the organiser, Multimedia Ghana Limited, for making their dreams of owning houses a reality.

The event which was the first of three mini clinics before the main event in October 2021 drew several thousands of patrons from afar and near to the Achimota Retail Center where various real estate developers and those in the housing value chain exhibited their offerings (products and services).

For many of them, the clinic afforded them the opportunity to take the first step towards owning their dream homes.

According to Godwin Aboagye who came all the way from Dansoman in Accra, he described the mini clinic as one of the most outstanding events he has ever attended since he obtained all the information he needed to acquire his dream home.

‘Let me commend Multimedia Ghana for doing its best in helping to address the rising housing deficit. Rent is a big issue in Accra in particular, so any moves to help solve part of the problem is highly welcome”, he explained.

“I’m very impressed because we always talk about the housing sector having a deficit of over two million units. So a programme like this is very essential to be able to bring industry players in the sector to discuss how we can bring down the housing deficit, so I’m very impressed with this programme that has taken place”, David Asamoah who resides in Awoshie in Greater Accra stated.

“I’m looking for affordable land or houses and how the prices are and see the terms and conditions of payment. At least somebody that I’m starting life afresh, I can own a land or a house and also pay in a way that it will not be that difficult for me. At the end, I’ll know that I own my own house” Godfred Amegbor from Achimota intimated.

“So far so good, I’m expecting that at the end of the fair, I’ll get an affordable package that can help me to own my own house”, he added.
