Should I buy or rent a home in Nigeria?

Answer this Question

If you have not spent a lot of time in Nigeria, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Nigeria can be a great investment, as real estate prices are generally on the rise. However, it is important to consider the costs associated with buying a home, such as closing costs, legal fees, and taxes. Additionally, it is important to consider the amount of time and effort that goes into maintaining a home. Renting a home in Nigeria can be a great option for those who are not ready to commit to a long-term purchase. Renting can provide flexibility and convenience, as well as the ability to move quickly if needed. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Nigeria should be based on individual needs and preferences," wrote a member who made the move to Nigeria.
