COST TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN KEFFI.NASSARAWA by market01(f): 4:12am On May 13, 2019

Keffi, town, Nassarawa state, central Nigeria. It was founded about 1800 by Abdu Zanga (Abdullahi), a Fulani warrior from the north who made it the seat of a vassal emirate subject to the emir of Zaria (a town 153 miles [246 km] north). Keffi has a population of 85,911 making it the 2nd biggest city in Nassarawa.

Keffi is about 50minutes drive to Abuja.its a small town that is popular due to the state university (Nasarawa State University), the Federal medical center and its closeness to Abuja. It is a quiet and lovely place for anyone to live inland not minding the fact that it is a multi religious town, it still remains peaceful. Economically, Keffi is quite a fair place to live in; as its cost of living is not high.

The house rent in Keffi is fair compared to that of Abuja, and the price depends on the part you are living in. Those living at Agwan lambu and high court areas, pay from 50 to 120 thousand for self contain, and lesser than 50thousand for single rooms. These areas are student areas, though some family people still live around there

The price of the house depends on its closeness to school, (those closer to school are more costly), how modern and modernly equipped the house is, availability of water(those that has well are a bit less costly than those with borehole),the light situation of the area(some lodges that uses the same electricity line as the school, are more expensive because they have more stable light than others) and lastly the security of the area.

Houses in high court are mostly self contains and single rooms, and you must pay an agent fee that ranges from 2000-5000 Naira before packing in. If you are a JJC(NewComer), you may pay more because the person that introduced you to the caretaker may also add his money to the price that you will pay at the end. This agent fee is only your first year as a tenant.

The cheapest area to live in are the places referred to as old Keffi town(Stadium, back of stadium, areas close to Keffi market and Emir palace etc) these are areas filled with indigene and family people. It is dominated by old houses and most of these places are like semi ghettos. Their light condition is poor, and they buy their water from boreholes. Places like Dadin kowa and low costs housing estate, suffer the same problem; but people are starting to build better houses, though they still suffer the same light and water problem. The only advantage this sides have over the high court area, are in terms of security, and closeness to the market

In Dadin Kowa, Area Commander and G.R.A, the house rent varies from 50K to 150K. Depending if it’s a self contain, or flat


Thanks for your time.

According to Zillow's August Real Estate Market Report, home value growth returned to a steady pace in August 2019 after a slowdown in the first half of the year. Quarter-over-quarter growth reached an annualized rate of 3.4%, up from 0.4% in May.

The median U.S. home is now worth $229,600, up 4.9% from last August, the lowest year-over-year change since April 2015. Annual growth has steadily slowed for eight consecutive months covering a period of significant change for the U.S. housing market. The rate of quarterly growth, a better indicator for recent market shifts and inflection points, has risen in each of the past three months.

Each of the 35 largest metros is appreciating at a slower annual rate than a year ago, but quarterly growth has accelerated since May in 26 of these. Of these large markets, only San Jose (down 10.8% annually) and San Francisco (down 1.9%) saw year-over-year declines, while home values in Las Vegas, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Sacramento, Boston, Baltimore, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and San Diego fell quarter-over-quarter.

The fastest-growing large markets were Indianapolis (up 7.9% year-over-year), Charlotte (up 7.1%) and Atlanta (up 6.9%). These markets have led the way in each of the past few months. The biggest quarterly gains were in Pittsburgh (up 1.7%), Tampa (up 1.7%) and Cleveland (up 1.2%).

"We have persistently strong consumer confidence and the significant drop in mortgage rates to thank for the housing market's return to modest home value growth," said Zillow Director of Economic Research Skylar Olsen. "While it may be a good time to lock in your 30-year fixed rate, the market is still starved for inventory and it's getting harder again for buyers to find the right home. If current market conditions hold, it wouldn't be a surprise to see home values continue to rise, but we could see a shift if consumer sentiment dips. Similarly, rental markets continue to feel the pressure of under building in the past - a reality not overcome by the surge in large, pricier apartment buildings in downtown areas. Most of these buildings continue to readily lease up, and rent growth is expected to continue."
