26 dollars, a little over 16,000 CFA francs. It is the average price per square meter of rent that an economic operator who wants to have an office in the city of Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon, must pay. With this average price per square meter of office rent, Douala is the 12th most expensive African city.
With an average rent per square meter of 22 dollars, or about 13,500 CFA francs, Yaounde, the Cameroonian capital, is at the 15th position in Africa, according to the study “Africa Report 2017-Real Estate Markets in a continent of Growth Opportunity “, which has just been published by the British consulting firm, specializing in real estate, Knight Frank.
But as the study shows, in the two main cities of Cameroon, the average price per square meter of office rent, which is cheaper than in Abidjan ($32), is almost half that of the the capital of Chad, Ndjamena ($55), and one third of those in Lagos ($ 67) and Luanda ($ 80), respectively in Nigeria and Angola.
