Been studying housing structures here for my boss in Lagos. Interesting designs.

One thing I noticed at the estates is that sites and services are completed before houses are moved into. It seems in Nigeria-people move into homes a lot when there services like pipe borne water, roads, street lights are not even ready yet.

Still wondering at all these wooden houses here. They look very good when completed though.

When school bus stops to pick or drop children-EVERYBODY must stop even the Governor. Children are really protected here.

Also noticed that the public schools are better than almost any private school.

Old cars sell for a lot here. This mans car looks like a 1920s car or earlier. Its probably worth over $200,000 for a car that old. I may have to go and find my grand fathers 1950 car back in the village.

My oga wants to buy 2 houses in this estate and flip it for profit after one year. His target based on information given him should make him up to $30,000 profit each. Big problem now is the dollar scarcity in Nigeria.

Haba take it easy now, 500k lose their life in Chicago alone annually Kai. What's the population of Chicago in the first place?

Chicago is actually an amazing city and Lagos cannot compare, it just has high gang on gang killing in a few areas down south. As a law abiding educated Nigerian working, there is absolutely no reason for you to even go to not to talk of live in those areas so I don't get the point you are trying to make. The same Chicago you are dissing had 50m visitors last year, wow they all died didn't they?

America is HUGE, at least 10 times bigger in land area compared to Nigeria with just double the population, if you cannot find a safe place to live then that's your problem not America. Besides was the OP living in ajegunle?





RichYoungNigga:
You're still new in America.
Do you know where Reading, Pennsylvania is ??
Have you been to Bronx New York ??
Have you been to little Haiti in Florida ??

Ajegunle is better than those places i ment.

There are places you can't go to in Santa Monica, California and in Chicago.
Let's talk about crime, Chicago is just a city, not even a state and they are world murder capital, 500 thousand people lose their lives yearly in Chicago.

Come, i go carry you go Camden, New Jersey or Alabama, you go know say Nigeria is heaven

So 131 murders in 3 months becomes 500k annually And it is says 84% rise doesn't it?

Yes I said there is gang on gang crime and killings but it is mostly in a few areas south side like englewood which are infested with black gangs, and a few areas west side like Austin which is occupied by Mexican Latina gangs. Most of Chicago downtown, North and even south etc not to talk of the suburbs are as safe as any major city and even safer than Lagos. Stop twisting information just got make your point.

In the article you posted it says at the bottom gang retaliation doesn't it?

If you are a law abiding person there is no reason whatsoever to be in those areas and as I said 50m people visited Chicago last year and were safe.

I also think most American houses are made of wood because there is a lower risk of fatality in the event of an earthquake or tornado.

We dont need all this info you are supplying.

You can go to property section to discuss your plans with the developers over there.

I'm sure you must be aware you are not the only person who has ever been to America?

IT folks earn a lot more here. Its actually easier to secure a well paying job here as an IT person if you are skilled at what you do. The average pay is usually about over a 100k for people with experience and about 80 to 90k for freshers.

CFCman:
Here, bank tellers (cashiers) earn around $12/hr on average.

Dentists, and other medical specialists make over $100k annually.

Software engineers earn $60k/year.

However, most highly-skilled salary workers now effectively work 50-60 hours a week. I'm talking about lawyers, professors, school administrators, software engineers, Wall Street bankers etc
Re: I Finally Got To America-thanks Nairaland! by donsoft: 1:01am On May 18, 2016
You are right bro, however you have to be good at what you do.

goldtooth:


I have read articles online that say software engineers and IT guys earn six figures ie over $100k except for they are entry level or freshers then they earn $60-$70k annually. That is my motivation oo. How much do phd holders and professors earn?

The case is different here in the US. Your take home actually depends on the number of dependents you have. If you don't fill your tax form correctly, you could over pay or under pay your taxes. When you over pay, you get a refund when you file your tax return else you may owe government some money.

claremont:


This figure is before tax and people should be aware of that. In UK, anyone who earns that is subject to 40% tax, so take home pay is about £65k per year. To be honest, after tax consideration, there is not much difference in the pay of someone who gets £60k per year and someone who gets £100k per year.
