Homework Development and Properties Limited, has restored the trust foreign investors once had in the Nigerian real estate sector.
This is the major outcome of the recent conference organised by the Association of Nigerian Physicians in the Americas, ANPA, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, where the Lagos-based leading real estate company showcased its affordable products and promoted the recent positive developments in real estate industry in Nigeria.
Reflecting on the conference attended by hundreds of physicians and other professionals, the Director of Homework Development and Properties Limited, Jide Adekola, an architect, said it provided a platform that helped to change the perception that foreign investors would not get value for money or might get scammed in Nigeria, adding that it also created the awareness that there are professionals in the sector who are able to provide quality products in due time.
“The change in perception, which we have created, would in no small measure boost businesses and increase the volume of foreign direct investments that can engender increase in gross domestic product of the country,“ Adekola said.
He affirmed that ANPA members, who have benefited from the unswerving services of the company, specifically requested that Homework should participate in the conference in order to take the Nigerian success story to the outside world.
According to Adekola, the event has exposed Homework to ANPA’s publications, increased networking and sales leads, the needs of customers and the property market, increased trust in foreign investors in the Nigerian real estate market, and has boosted awareness that there is a unique selling point in the company’s products which are delivered by professional architects.
He explained that the real estate sector, which is inundated with issues of trust, lack of finance and presence of charlatans, can be saved if government subsidises the cost of land for credible developers who have the capacity to provide affordable housing.
Adekola added that Homework would also take part in the annual conference organised by the National Association of Nigerian Nurses in North America and other subdivisions within the US. This would enable the company reach out to other professional associations and more Nigerians in the globe.
Homework is also planning to hold similar exhibitions and talks in Canada, the United Kingdom and other countries with large population of Nigerians.
