Housing is one of the fundamental human needs in addition to food and clothing. It is equally a significant indicator of a person’s standard of living, and sometimes also an indication of place or status in society. Investopedia defines property investment as ” a real estate property purchased with the intention of earning a return on the investment either through rental income, the future resale of the property, or both. ” It is, therefore, mandatory to say that property investment in Nigeria is a very vital sector.
However, in a country like Nigeria, access to land and affordable/habitable housing has for the most part been an unfulfilled dream to a displeasing large proportion of the middle and lower class population. A lot of people do not have the right and appropriate funds to afford a good house as a very vital need for human beings.
