when you see an advert of a property you are interested in, ask all the necessary information about it, ask for the name of the company and make your own finding.
Google is your friend, just type the name of the company, once you see that the company is a standard one, you can now make the next decision.
Mistakes most people in abroad make is that they think that buying directly from the company make the price of the property cheaper than buying through a realtor.
Buying through a realtor doesn’t increase the price, a realtor works for the company, buying through a realtor will make the realtor help you through the process.
because it is the realtor that can constantly update about the property, help you to monitor documentation process, monitor the allocation and any process involved in property acquisition. And also, you can easily call upon your realtor about the property.
These are what I have done for most of my amazing clients who are outside Lagos and in abroad.
There is virtual site inspection for people who are not in Lagos or who don’t have time coming for physical inspection. Don’t ever be in a hurry to pay for what you don’t have idea about.
If you don’t have any trusted relative to send for physical site inspection, kindly request for virtual inspection, through the live video, you will get to know the property better whether is a table, sloppy, dry, swampy or waterlogged land.
This is the most sensitive part, don’t give a family member or friend such responsibility. When it got a stage of paying money for the property, you will be given FAQ form ( FAQ simply means frequently asked questions).
Make sure you read the form thoroughly and carefully. Then make payment into the company’s account name. make sure you are paying into the company that owns the property.
After the payment the next thing is to get your payment receipts and land documents. Some companies waybill the documents while some send the softcopy of the documents.
Then, whenever in Nigeria you get the hardcopy, that is if you don’t want your hardcopy to be given to any of your relatives in Nigeria.
All these procedures are how not to fall victim of buying fake property in Lagos and this is how most Nigerians in abroad secure their property in Lagos without stress and their investment is very safe and secured.
As a real estate consultant and from my experience I always advise potential buyers not to depend too much on relative as they can confuse them when making decision due to their own selfish interest.
Let a professional help you through the process, it is my service to help/guide you on making the right decision, monitor the process for you and make sure you get your documents and property allocation.
I don’t handle client’s money all payments are made into the company’s account and I make sure the corporate account you are paying into is the same with the company that owns the property.
