He emphasised that the housing platform will also provide the necessary data needed to achieve the goal of implementing a Demand-Driven Strategy for Housing by helping to gauge the nature of housing needs for different locations and demographics nationwide.

“It has a user-friendly interface to ensure that the journey to homeownership is smooth and straightforward. It ensures a seamless and secure registration process with identity verification, enabling potential homeowners to efficiently search for properties using various filters, ensuring they find homes that meet their specific needs.

The platform also integrates features that offer flexible payment options, including both one-time payments and instalment plans, catering to different financial situations”, he said.

He revealed that the platform will provide easy access to mortgage plans, allowing homebuyers to check their eligibility and apply from anywhere in the world. Adding that it will support equity contributions for mortgages and streamline financial planning for buyers.

While explaining that the ministry wants to only facilitate the building of homes that people can afford and in locations where they are needed to avoid ending up with houses that are fully built but abandoned, Dangiwa further revealed that currently, they have Estates in 12 locations and three cities across the country.
