The National Housing Fund (NHF) provides one-time access to funds of up to N15 million at an interest rate of 6% per annum, payable over 30 years to committed and regular contributors. With the ever-growing demand for housing at lower price points, there is keen interest to know which developments are available to NHF contributors. Developers are also aware of this ever-growing demand for lower priced properties and have become more innovative with their developments whilst providing the comfort, style and efficiency homeowners desire. This article is the first in our continuous series on what is available for first time homeowners and families with lower budgets.
Cocoon Atlantic Estate, a project by Cocoon Homes, is a 5-hectare project in Sangotedo, Lekki with a plan for 383 homes comprising of 2-bedroom flats, 3-bedroom flats and 3-bedroom terrace houses. Sangotedo is in the greater Lekki area and has experienced significant growth in recent times. Novare Lekki Mall, Lagos Business School and Alpha beach in the neighbourhood, are expected to continue to increase interest in the area.
