Online marketplace Lamudi launches first African real estate conference

Online real estate platform Lamudi kicked off the first conference on Pan-African Real Estate in Lagos, Nigeria, inviting Lamudi management from 17 African countries as well as experts and key partners to join the event.

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. Continue...

 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.”

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.
