Mercy Homes UK visit's Amen Estate in Lekki, Ibeju, Lagos

As Nigerians in Diaspora the most difficult thing encountered by most Nigerians living Abroad is finding a reliable source when it comes to building a retirement or investment home. There has been story after story of family swindling Nigerians Abroad, sending them other peoples property picture on the pretence that it is theirs. Real Estate agents and fake developers promising to build the most beautiful homes with all the amenities of living abroad, from water, 24 hour electricity, tarred roads, up to date surveillance system by marketing with a fancy website using computer generated 3D pictures. They require you pay most of the money which normally runs to millions of naira by selling discounted off plan developments only for you to find out that they have been scammed. The project never gets developed, money is hard to get back and if it is with family you might end up loosing your life if care is not taken.

Hence our trip to Nigeria to see if Amen Estates is the real McCoy! .  As a Property Specialist our duty is to source out genuine deals beneficial to both  the buyer (Nigerians in Diaspora) and developer, more of a win, win situation. Mercy Homes would only recommend to our readers properties, developers that have been checked out as being credible with a track record of genuineness and integrity.

So with our Lagos based consultant Mr Dimeji Alabi from our Ikeja Office, we head off to Amen Estates in Ibeju Lekki, located on Eleko Beach Road in the Lekki Peninsula corridor of Lagos. The first thing that catches your eye is the vast estate on the main road of these beautiful red brick buildings built with a well laid out plan, the symmetry, the infrastructure, the overall landscape has a touch of  a western culture air to it, the estate isn’t hidden behind prison like walls, but has a transparency and surreal atmosphere for you to enjoy the ambiance of the estate even before you go through the security gates, which are heavily guarded with manpower and top of the art security system in place.

Before leaving London I had already secured an appointment to see Mrs Sade Gbadamosi, so on passing through the estate security guard, I was led into one of their beautiful grand properties called called ‘The Palace’  it has 8 rooms and 7 en-suites, 1 study and 5 receptions, I mean how big can you go!. As well as this it has a 2 to 3 room self contained BQ, normally left for house helps and drivers!.
