“Recently, in the US, the National Association of Home Builders of America stated that the Real Estate sector would provide the most gainful employment for the people. This is because the demand for more conducive accommodation is on the increase. Also, we have many people working in the sector – there are marketers, developers, architects, etc. There are also huge demand for the low and medium income housing as it has been predicted that there are more babies on the way because of the lockdown.” He stated.
Other opportunities in the Real Estate sector are Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into the country when roads and other critical infrastructure are being constructed.

“People are now selling their houses and moving into gated Estates/ communities. People also desire bigger homes in terms of capacity and functionality. Therefore, there will also be greater demand in the Real Estate industry” he said.
Speaking on his post Covid – 19 projections, CEO, Boing Luxury Estate, Mr. Ory Martins stated that Nigeria will not be an exception in the scheme of things as the pandemic has altered our way of lives in so many ways. Government, he said needs to look inwards and reinvent the wheel and start producing those things that we have not been producing within the country.

For Mrs. Temi Alade –Mustapha, she strongly advised individuals and corporate organizations to have financial goals which they should strive to work towards. And also, people should focus on the way forward by investing in themselves, set goals generally, invest in viable businesses and more importantly, invest in Real Estate as it is the only guaranteed investment of all times.
