The rental market in Tanzania

Unfortunately, the IUT does not have any active member organizations in Tanzania. Here, as a service to anyone interested, we have collected facts and information about the housing market in general, and rental market in particular. Most of the publications and links are based on other sources, and the authors themselves are responsible for that information.

If you have any tip about other published articles or reports concerning the rental market in Tanzania, please contact us on
