Lamudi, the online real estate platform, has hosted an event to address common issues in the real estate industry in the region and identify key strategies and trends for the near future.
Lamudi said that the first conference on Pan-African Real Estate held in Lagos, Nigeria, attracted Lamudi management from 17 African countries as well as experts and key partners.
Obi Ejimofo, Managing Director of Lamudi Nigeria, stated: “We have created this conference to stimulate discussion around the topic of real estate in Africa and how online platforms can help to revolutionise the market. Whilst we certainly took some time to acknowledge achievements over the past six months, it was important that we also look forward to ask ourselves what further products and services we can offer our users, and how we can improve the online customer experience.”
According to him, the panel discussed the state of real estate markets across the continent as well as looking at areas of similarity, differences, and trends based on traffic analysis from Africa’s largest online real estate platform.
The event addressed the common issues in the real estate industry in the region, as well as identifying key strategies and trends for the near future. Bex Nwandu, managing partner at CBO Capital, was in attendance as the panel moderator and commented: “Lamudi did an excellent job in bringing together a wide variety of industry participants to discuss the future of real estate in Africa. The discussion was engaging and demonstrated the inherent value Lamudi brings to the real estate sector, and I am sure that Lamudi will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
Lamudi, which was founded in 2013 and is currently available in 25 countries across Asia, Middle East, Latin America, and Africa now has over 300,000 listings on the platform, the company said.
According to Lamudi, its real estate marketplace offers sellers, buyers, landlords, and renters the ideal platform to find homes, land, and commercial properties online.
