Descriptive statistics were used in the analysis. Research findings indicate that Real Estate Developments have influenced my several factors. However, there are several impacts includes increase the rate of rent and change the government policy. To a small extent, real es tates followed physical planning guidelines as evidenced from the master plan or design layouts, however, it was noted that some people did not know anything about physical planning and equated physical planning master plans to site layouts of building plans. This indicates how physical planning was still unknown by the people, hence the need for community sensitization. Finally, the study recommended community sensitization to improve awareness on planning, real estate development and control the price by authorities before the developed of the estates, consideration of the low income groups when establishing the estates.
