When renting an apartment in Lagos, prices are a major factor to consider with Lagos been one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in. Due to the recent development of this mega city in many parts, residents tend to find it increasingly difficult to afford the ever-rising cost of renting an apartment.
In light of this, I put together some areas in Lagos with relatively affordable housing;
Ojota is one of the most popular places in Lagos. It is located in the Kosofe Local Government Area of Lagos State, Nigeria. It is in close proximity to Ikeja and Ketu areas which is a bonus for those working in these environs as they would not have to spend so much on transportation to their workplaces. Ojota provides easy access for people who want to travel to other parts of Nigeria as it has one of the major car parks in Lagos State.
The highlights of Ojota include; China Town which serves as a home, tourist site or relaxation spot for numerous people including Chinese expatriates, the Gani Fawehinmi Garden and Abiola Gardens. The Ojota Market which comprises of several plazas, stalls, and shopping malls, is the main market that serves the people in the area.
