Property and real estate business are booming in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital because there are not enough houses for the over 22 million inhabitants of the metropolitan city. Hence, many landlords and agents take advantage of this to exploit house hunters.
Since it is very competitive, it should not surprise anyone that another property platform to help you search for houses at any choice location has come on board in Lagos. We introduce Eko Apartment.
Eko Apartment was launched in October 2016 and it is a platform where you can find properties anywhere in Lagos.
Commenting on the uniqueness of the startup in an already saturated online property booking market, Kunle Akintunde, who works with Eko Apartment said: “If there’s one thing with Eko Apartment, it’s that we protect our home seekers by giving them the opportunity to check vacant apartments managed by our agents for free without necessarily paying the mandatory agency fee prior to getting their preferred accommodation.”
Perhaps, this uniqueness will motivate house hunters to flood to the Eko Apartment. However, the fact still remains that the startup has very solid competitors that are holding their own. Despite this, the business environment is large enough for any business to thrive as far as they have a good and impregnable business strategy.
