What is the effect of Covid 19 on Real Estate?

Just like other sectors experienced, Covid 19 Pandemic disrupted quite a number of activities. However, Real Estate industry has witnessed both the positive and a few negative impacts of the pandemic.


On the side of the investors, many people became house owners because Asset values dropped. A lot of properties that were sold at higher values have been subsidized, hence investors are able to take advantage of it before prices start increasing rapidly to return the value it may have lost.


Also due to the pandemic, sadly many people became unemployed. Covid 19 situation is a force majeurs which no one expected. Tenants who weren't fully prepared earlier found it difficult to renew house rent in the cities. As a result, properties at the fringes of the City especially Lagos suddenly becomes hot cakes as more tenants now move there. Construction companies with home buyers found building of portable houses very profitable at this era.


How did you cope as a practitioner?

Due to the restriction of movement during the pandemic, I, as a practitioner together with my team took advantage of our digital skills fully. I was able to connect better with our clients through our various social media platforms. Our webinar participants increased tremendously, hence virtual inspections were coordinated successfully for our property buyers.

What are the major lessons?

One of the major lesson this year has taught us is to always be fully prepared for rainy seasons and to always avoid procrastination. Most importantly, we learnt to be smart with our Investment decisions. Imagine those who managed to acquire a piece of land or house outrightly last year, they now have NO worries on rent payment.
