The fact that most people consider buying a piece of land in Lagos a dream that cannot be achieved is discouraging. Statistics show that about 70% of Lagosians prefer to rent, rather than buy a property.
I must confess, buying a property in Lagos can be very stressful. It can also be risky. Many Lagosians try as much as possible to avoid buying properties because it can end up as a wasteful investment if they patronise the wrong agents. No wonder, some people who live in rented apartments in Lagos have built their houses in their villages.

Desire to buy a piece of land
If you don’t have the desire, you will never buy one. This is basic. Buying a piece of land should be one of your long-term or short-term goals. Build your interest by locating a good piece land in the area of your choice. Read magazines, journals, and articles on how to buy properties in Lagos. Check out property websites. You don’t need money to do this.
This sounds like a regular piece of advice, but saving part of your income will yield a lot of money at the end of the year. You can even be part of a group that does monthly savings locally called Esusu. Saving as low as 20,000 NGN of an income of 80,000 NGN monthly will make 200,000 NGN in ten months, thus, buying a land will be more accessible.
Pay With Your Savings
Having highlighted one of the easiest ways to save, buying a piece of land with your savings makes it a lot easier. The truth about saving monthly is that it allows you to be focused, determined, and diligent. When you know that you have to save, you cut cost. You won’t spend so much on shopping, your life seems more organised. However, investing your savings on something tangible is important.
Pay in Installments
It’s not bad to pay in calculated parts. If the property costs 500,000 NGN, you can pay 200,000 at first. There are mortgage schemes that allow you to get properties and pay with ease. So if this is what you want to do, cool. However, it is very important to be consistent with the payment.
Patronise Reliable Agents
One of the causes of land fraud is patronising bad agents. You need to make sure the agents are of reputable identity.
