Affordability Tops Abuja Housing Show Agenda

By Ijeoma Thomas-Odia

The issue of affordability continues to be the heart of the discussion in real estate for so many reasons; rent and sale prices are the seemingly obvious culprit causing concern with affordability.

While it can be agreed that working to decrease costs to renters and potential homeowners is important and arguably has the most immediate impact, it's possible this has become the scapegoat of larger concerns.

This is the thrust at the 12th edition of the Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) an offshoot of the International Housing and construction show limited, with the theme: 'Housing affordability versus affordable housing', taking place from July 16-19.
