One of the biggest challenges a large number of Nigerians encounter is housing. This is because only a handful of them can afford to construct their own homes regardless of the fact that there is a Federal Mortgage scheme. The others have to rent houses.
This said, many Nigerians who want to rent houses have lost hard earned monies to deceptive and manipulative agents who let out the same apartment to a large number of people. This is a major problem in Lagos.
Although there are so many platforms to rent homes like Tolet.com.ng and Nigeria Property Centre among many others, Muster.ng has launched to introduce a different and unique dimension to house hunting.
Founded by Ibraheem Babalola recently, Muster.ng is a startup that connects people and organizations looking to rent properties with other people and organizations using preset preferences to find the most suitable match.
According to Babalola, “Renting or buying a property in urban or developed areas can be a real pain. The rates are most times too expensive or just above affordable. For these reasons, sharing becomes a viable solution. It is “commonsensical”, economical and the most viable solution for individuals and organizations looking to move into new properties. The solution is Muster.ng.
The fact that Muster.ng can link or connect Nigerians to other Nigerians looking to rent houses may be a major catch for the startup. This will obviously put them ahead of others.
