Housing Inflation in Nigeria: Should You be Worried?

Updated: Nov 30, 2021

From the beginning of 2021 up till this moment, the cost of renting a house in Southern Nigeria has consistently increased. One wonders if landlords are taking undue advantage of the demand for housing, or if it's something else.

Since January 2021 up until now, the prices of rental housing in the South East have gone up 17.01 percent and this has led to landlords taking advantage of the demand for housing, which is exceeding its supply to hike their rents to the detriment of the tenants. Currently, renting a home in regions like the South-Eastern part of Nigeria, a prospective tenant has to make a payment of not less than one year. In some cases, tenants are expected to pay up to three years in advance rent to secure rental accommodation. This is not the case in some African countries like Botswana, South Africa, Benin Republic, Togo, and Rwanda, where rents are paid on monthly basis.

With the above statistic, you can be assured that the price of rent and housing in places like Lagos and Abuja would have skyrocketed. This is why it is so prudent to own your own piece of land at this crucial time. At Evertop Realties, we sell choice pieces of land in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, and Anambra States.
