@op, you can start the real estate biz a s a consultant, just like me

RECESSION CANNOT TOUCH REAL ESTATE.
In this current recession, it is most advisable to invest in Real Estate because if you leave N10m in the bank today, by next year it's value would have dropped.
But if you invest in Real Estate today, by next year the value of your property would have appreciated amazingly.

IF YOU LEAVE YOUR MONEY IN THE BANK, RECESSION Will TOUCH IT, BECAUSE THE VALUE WILL REDUCE (The things that N10m will buy today, the N10m will not be able to buy those things in 2 years time).

Lekki royal Garden (ibeju-lekki) @4m
Lekki Rose Garden (Ibeju-Lekki) @4m
Lekki crystal Garden (Ibeju-Lekki) @2.5m
Royal Haven Garden (ibeju-lekki) @ 750k
Royal Haven Garden (Mowe) @ 700k
Royal Haven Garden (Ikorodu) @800k

Given a capital of N1m, there's 99% probability that you will still end up broke in 1 year.
