Finding real estate in Nigeria is a Herculean task. This is even more relevant for residents of the country’s large cities, where demand far exceeds supply. First of all, you need to find the time to go inspect in a busy schedule. Then there are the issues of unreactive agents whose listings are not available in the market just to entice you to see alternative properties.
If a Nigerian living in Nigeria has to overcome these many hurdles to solve a simple sorting problem, how much more difficult can it be for Nigerians in the diaspora to find suitable properties to buy or rent here? This is where BuyLetLive, a new online real estate marketplace, comes in.
On November 1, 2021, BuyLetLive launched its revolutionary marketplace with the goal of changing the narrative of homeownership and renting in Nigeria. This e-commerce platform implements its overall goal of creating a satisfying experience for customers when searching for accommodation.
Business Development Director Adedolapo Odunsi noted that this development would create significant relief in the experience of finding housing. According to him, “The platform will provide a two-layered solution that gives developers and real estate agents wider visibility to showcase their products to property seekers around the world. It is surprising that Nigerians in the diaspora still complain about the difficulty of buying property in Nigeria, even now, when there are several developers with exceptional backgrounds who provide state-of-the-art infrastructure in Nigeria. Our goal is to restore the confidence of property seekers and connect them with the right developers and agents through a digital platform that offers convenience and a flawless, customer-centric approach.
On how the platform will solve agent issues through verification, Mr. Odunsi said, “Your confidence level can be increased when you hire an agent on our platform. We conduct a basic identity verification process during agency onboarding to protect users on the platform. However, a more robust verification is in its development phase. Additionally, for the real estate agency ecosystem, we’ve designed the Marketplace to provide an easy browsing experience with features that allow you to manage and schedule your scheduled inspection while ensuring unparalleled visibility to showcase your portfolios to. a wider audience at home and abroad.
