Afghan Real Estate

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

The first task in my skate agenda is to find some land for us to build our skate school. Real estate in Kabul is not like in the west. Its all about who you know and who they know. So with a little help from my friends we started to look at locations.

The first place had a lovely house, good rooms and a dog. But the yard was too small for a skate park.

The second one was in a great location, had good neighbours and was a huge block. Unfortunately there was no power or water installed and they were asking a lot for the property.

Our third option was again in a good location, had ample room for the skate park and was connected to power and water. The bonus was it had a cute little house at the back of it, that is currently being restored. This would be perfect for our offices and then we would just need to build another room for classes. For me this one had the best 'feeling' and potential.

But this is only the start of it. I have other 'estate agents' to go through and other neighbourhoods to explore. So stayed tuned.
