Yes. Fibre! Not Optic fibre or fibre biscuit. This real estate startup is changing the way Nigerians understand property management, especially the area that has to do with rent. Of course, rent is a very big issue in Nigeria and Landlords tend to treat their tenants like rags, which is a clear violation of the tenancy laws in Nigeria.
Most tenants are dehumanized by their Landlords, the major reason is their inability to cough-out two-years of rent at a go. I do not know who started the trend, but it has become a tradition. Imagine a young man who is placed on a monthly salary, if he wants a roof over his head, he has to find a way to pay for his two-year rent in one swoop. If this is not wicked, then someone has to change the definition of the word, “wicked”.
Alright, Renting houses in Lagos, I mean a good house is not for ordinary people. You will need to brace up for the task, the anger and frustration that comes with it. Firstly, you will be faced with Agent “wahala”, they keep tossing you around like a ball and when you eventually find an apartment you love to rent, they will release their venom to suck out of the money you have.
Renting an apartment in Lagos is a tedious task, I recall how my brother got his apartment in Ajah, and ended up paying N900k per year, excluding dealings with his so-called agent. It was really awful, terrible.
Boom! Obinna Okwodu out of the blues, created the startup Fiber.ng that fixes a very complex issue in a very simple way and you are going to find out how.
How Does Fibre.ng Rent Houses To Lagos Residents?
Rather than go through all the hustle without being paid a penny because you want a roof over your head. Fibre.ng will let you make choices without sweat. Mind you, it is not restricted to residential houses, the startup offers so much and you only need to fill your requirements, the rest of the job is done by the startup team. Amazing!
What really happens is that you sign a one-year contract deal with Fibre.ng. In the real sense, you are not paying for one-year, you are only signing an agreement to pay 25% of the annual rent on the first month, then 75% every month for the next 11 months.
That’s a huge relief for a lot of people. In fact, this is the way mortgage works in advanced countries. I love the solution Fibre.ng is bringing to end a nasty problem, I can’t wait for the startup to get a nationwide penetration.
So, you need an apartment? Rather than Google it, why not Fibre it? Now that you have done so, do you want to buy fuel and you need the cheapest price in your area, the NaWhere.ng startup seems to have found a way to solve that problem. You need to see what the team has up their sleeves.
