Launched on the 1st of October 2016, Eko Apartment is a real estate listing platform where home seekers can search for property in locations of their choice.
As an online property portal, Eko Apartment gives agents freedom to post properties for free and, by so doing, opens up home seekers to as many opportunities as possible to find their homes. The apartments meet both the needs of rent or purchase.
Upon registration, property agents are given the chance to own and manage their dashboard, where they can post, get feedback and measure the engagement of their listing.
There is no arguing the fact that real estate is a lucrative business. Much so, it is on the rise lately. But one thing is their relevance, another is their ubiquity. How difficult can it get for a relatively new startup forcing its way through the crowd to make a visible impact in an industry that already has established players?
Asserting their core mission and how Eko Apartment aspires to be different, Kunle Akintunde, a representative of the startup highlights that, “If there’s one thing with Eko Apartment, it’s that we protect our home seekers by giving them the opportunity to check vacant apartments managed by our agents for free without necessarily paying the mandatory agency fee prior to getting their preferred accommodation.”
Going further he remarks that, “And as a brand, Eko Apartment is interested in providing and helping Lagosians and Nigerians at large achieve their dream of becoming property owners through our soon to be rolled out special mortgage scheme.”
There is also the promise of instalment payment (for its subscription plan) as well as new features to be released to be rolled out. Perhaps, Eko Apartment does have something big under its sleeves after all.
