Long-term Property Investment: My Top 5 Pick

Long-term Property Investment: My Top 5 Pick

Long-term real estate investment in Lagos and Ogun can be very delicate, 2 basic things matter the most

  1. Title: title, I mean is the property owner recognized and approved by the government? It’s important because it gives you security and also makes it bankable.
  2. Who handles it (developers): I always advise to buy from real estate development because even if you have a good title, you’re not ready to develop and in the sight of the law, possession overshadows title ownership, basically means if someone builds on your property, the person can take ownership lol. Why not buy from developers who take possession for you and keep it secured so far it’s fenced.

Be that as it may, Lagos in its self is interesting, for the long term, it’s cheaper to buy in the “new” Lagos, we mean Ibeju-Lekki, Epe, etc because they have the prospect of new developments.

Here are the carefully selected estates that meet our criteria:

Eminence Estate

Eminence Court is strategically located in the Shapati community of Bogije off the Lekki Epe Expressway one of the emerging prime investment locations within the new economic center of Lagos state (Lekki Free Trade Zone).

It neighbors Beachwood estate, Coscharis motors, the Omu resort, Caleb British Intl School amongst notable landmarks

Location: Bogije

Price: N4,900,000 + Survey N450,000 + Documentation N150,000 + Developmental Fee N799,800 (N1,333 x 600sqm) = N6,299,800

Title: Govt Approved Excision

Why should you get it: Currently getting properties with a government titles land is scarce thereby making them more expensive and this has an approved verifiable title and in the middle of development. Secondly, it is close to the “old” Lagos and the “new” Lagos. Not 100% dry but would be sand-filled.

It’s also 15 minutes drive from the La Capagne Tropicana, one of Lagos’s top choice holiday centers. Whether you are buying to build, wait or sell in the future. It’s also a safe distance from the Dangote refinery while still benefitting economically from it.
