Editor's Note: Lagos is one of the most expensive cities to live in the world. Renting or buying a property in Lagos can cost a fortune. In recent years, due to development in many parts of the mega city, residents have been finding it increasingly difficult to afford the exorbitant cost of rent.
The high cost of property in Lagos has resulted in the proliferation of slums in the city as residents cannot afford to rent or buy a house.
Mortgaging is also expensive and not common. As Nigerians from all parts of the country migrate into Lagos, the city is bursting at the seams and the cost of property keeps going up.
Many areas of Lagos have become very expensive with a single room costing as much as N10, 000 in places like Lekki.
