Abstract


The purpose of this study was to analyse the phenomenon of challenges faced by the real estate agents in the city of Beira, Mozambique. The study sought to examine challenges being faced by property owners, property seekers, property management regulators, and real estate agents during the course of their business activities in the city of Beira. The researcher adopted the qualitative methodology under the Interpretivism paradigm. The study adopted the case study research design to build theory while investigating the phenomenon. Face-to-face interviews were conducted among 30 participants. The results show that real estate agency activities are being managed haphazardly; there is no government board to oversee the property industry. The study recommends that Mozambique government sets up real estate board, to develop laws and specific guidelines for real estate agents activities. It also recommends setting up qualifications needed for real estate agents.
