Rocket Internet’s online property marketplace, Lamudi has seen online listings surpass 25,000 less than 1 year since it’s official launch a year ago, aiming at serving the over 150 million people in Nigeria.
According to Managing Director, Lamudi Nigeria, Obi Ejimofo, ‘This new milestone does not come as a surprise to us as we are constantly pushing to open up access to the real estate sector for all Nigerians.
But size is not everything, we feel it is equally important to educate both our sellers and buyers on the benefits and pitfalls in the marketplace. This is why we are equally proud of the success of the Lamudi Journal – our portal of knowledge, news and tips on real estate which has reached a milestone of over 100,000 hits per week, barely 4 months since we created it.’ This is an indication of the appetite for knowledge and trust in this sector.’
Lamudi is currently available in 28 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, with over 400,000 real estate listings across its global network. The leading real estate marketplace offers sellers, buyers, landlords and renters a secure and easy-to-use platform to find or list properties online.
A few months ago, PrivateProperty reported to have over 130,000 listings in the country, making it the biggest online real estate site overall. Lamudi will have to do so much to edge close to where it’s competitor is.
