How To Buy A House In Lagos, Nigeria Without Over Paying by Sachiopropty(m): 3:25pm On Aug 31, 2019
Lagos is a great place to own a house in the country. When buying a home in a state like Lagos, however, it often happens that people pay too much. You overpay for lack of knowledge, refusal to take important action, etc. You are likely to read this article to avoid overpayment during a home purchase. Do not worry; you have taken a big step.

Statistics show that 70% of Lagosians are more willing to rent a property than to buy. Why is that? Is buying a home a good investment? A big yes, why do many people prefer to rent an apartment instead of buying one?

Buying a property is the dream of so many Nigerians. However, most Nigerians are unable to afford the high cost of a property they consider secondary to food and clothing. With the recent economic downturn and new inventions in the real estate industry, buying a home has become a really good company. Some real estate companies are now involved in the business, which lately simplifies the process of obtaining a mortgage or no mortgage.

To buy a house in Lagos Nigeria without paying too much, you have to do certain things, from seeking expert help to comparing it with other houses in the same area, etc. The following texts explain the measures taken in Lagos Nigeria have to be full.

Ask experts for help

In every area of life there will always be experts with a great deal of knowledge and experience in this field. These experts can give you important information and tips. Unfortunately, many people who buy houses do not seek the help of experts, and in the end they pay too much and often regret having made such a mistake later.

Now that you know this, it is a very sensible thing to seek the help of an expert / expert. Yes, it could be more than a real estate expert if you can afford it. Make them aware of everything during the purchase process.

Hire an experienced evaluator


A very common mistake is, not knowing the true value of a home you want to buy. This mistake often occurs in people who buy a home alone without professional help. Before you buy a house, you must first evaluate the house. If you know the true value of a home, you will be able to make a bid that is not too small.

If the seller tries to exploit you, you are aware of the exploitation and can push it aside. However, a good rating of a house is a technical task. You need special knowledge and experience to do this properly. If you do not have the knowledge and experience, you have no choice but to hire an experienced evaluator.

Do not be in a hurry

Sometimes it is very tedious to look for a house to buy. The whole thing becomes a day-to-day business and lasts a long time. In states like the state of Lagos, the problem is far greater. When people finally find a home that suits them, they often hurry to buy it. It can happen that people are in a hurry if they meet a deadline. Avoid snatching the house from another buyer.

Unfortunately, one of the main reasons why people pay too much when buying a home is when they are in a hurry. Being in a hurry attracts subtle actions that lead to overpayment. To avoid this, the solution is direct. All you have to do is avoid hurrying. Avoid hurrying to save money.

Compare and contrast with other houses in the area

Buying a house is not the same as buying an item in a supermarket. By that I mean that there is no constant price for similar houses (similarity in size, age, amenities, etc.), especially for similar houses that are not in the same area. For example, if you know the reasonable cost of a house in one area and come across a similar house in another area, the price for the first may not be the appropriate price for the second.

If you use the same price, you can either undercut or outbid. One way to save you from this mess is to compare it to other houses in the same area as the house. How much were other houses sold in this area? How much will some houses sell at this moment? These are questions that need to be asked, and it is a task to get answers to these questions.

Reach potential Sales Agent

There are many people out there who have houses but cannot do it, but they have not put it up for sale. Such people have many houses, are not in the state or in the country, do not like the house for one reason or another, etc. According to statistics, this kind of people often sells their house at fair prices.

I will agree, when you look at a house that is being put up for sale, other elements that affect and often increase the price play a role. If you know this, you can use this information.


Address potential salespeople who have not offered their home for sale. This will probably prevent you from overpaying when buying a home.

Lagos houses are overpriced!! You will be seeing 150 million on houses built on a quarter of a plot. This can build you mansion in other cities like Ibadan with accompanying peace of mind.
