The family-friendly suburb of Roma has become one of the most popular residential areas of LusakaProperties in Roma consist of larger homes, two to three bedroom upmarket villas and executive flats. Due to its close proximity to the retail and financial district around Arcades Mall, Acacia Park and East Park, residential property in Roma is a popular choice for middle-income families.

Roma culminates in Roma Park, a large-scale mixed-use development. With a large number of residential plots, Roma Park is developing into a suburb of its own with housing complexes and a range of services being created within its boundaries. Many young families are attracted to large, well-served estates such as this and the value of the properties is expected to rise in coming years.

To the west of Roma lies Olympia, a residential area with easy access to facilities and services. Property here sits at slightly lower prices than the property and houses for sale in Roma, making it a good area for a starter home. Kalundu lies to the east of Roma and has long been an area for short-term rentals.
