Recent research of PriceWaterhouseCooper has provided an interesting forecast that Nigeria is going to become a ‘city of renters’ by the year 2025 because of the house prices that will make buying property in the capital unaffordable for more than 60% of inhabitants. The point is that nowadays, young people aged between 20 and 40 are being priced out of the buying market and have nothing to do but become renters. This means that soon there will be less houses for sale, but should you wish to buy-to-let you would not have any difficulties in finding tenants.

In the year 2018, the Nigeria buying market still seems very attractive for both locals, and foreigners.
