In order to ensure equity facilities in mortgage bank, Nigeria’s largest online property platform, Lamudi Nigeria, has entered into a strategic partnership with leading mortgage bank, Imperial Homes Mortgage Bank Limited, with the aim of improving and deepening access to affordable mortgage facilities to boost the nation’s economy.
Through Lamudi’s online mortgage calculator, property buyers can search for properties on the Lamudi Nigeria’s website, and also estimate their potential mortgage repayments and apply for a loan for their property of choice.
The user-friendly mortgage calculator is integrated with every property available for sale on Lamudi. As a result, a buyer can choose his/her initial deposit and the tenor of the loan, input these details and receive his/her estimated mortgage repayment calculated based on the interest rate offered by Imperial Homes. A buyer can also automatically apply for a mortgage from Imperial Homes through the same application.
According to Obi Ejimofo, Lamudi Nigerian Managing Director said “This is a very big deal for us as a platform. From the start, our core objectives have been to make it easier for our people to secure their next home. We chose to partner with Imperial Homes specifically because they share the same ideals and have developed mortgage and savings products designed to assist the broader populace in getting a firm foot on the property ladder”
Ejimofo described this collaboration as unprecedented in the real estate industry, hoping that it would empower Lamudi’s customers to secure the property of their dreams further said that “as at today, when you visit Lamudi, you cannot only find your dream home, but also secure the finances to buy it”.
Ben Akaneme, Imperial Homes’ Managing Director, said their mission was to make mortgages easy and affordable in order to facilitate home ownership among Nigerians, pointing out that the collaboration was a major step in actualizing that mission.
