- While some people have great news to share about their experiences, some others had it rough
- In Lagos state, a woman was dismayed to see the apartment an agent showed her for a whopping sum of N1.5 million
Searching for a house in Lagos, the most populated state in Nigeria, feels like squeezing water from a rock.
Only a few lucky people have fantastic tales about their house-hunting experience in the state.
A Nigerian lady with the handle victoire_manhounou on TikTok was sadly not one of those with an amazing experience as she faced a tough time.
In her video, Victoire displayed the substandard apartments that were up for grabs with high annual rent.

The disappointed woman said she was already informed that finding an apartment within her budget was difficult, but she trusted in God before embarking on the house-hunting journey.
An agent first took her to an apartment for N1.5 million, but everything about the house was not befitting.

Lady shares video of small house agent took her to
Similarly, Legit.ng reported that a young Nigerian lady, Anagu Nkemjika, with the TikTok handle @kem__ji has gone online to show people the house an agent told her to come and pay N1.1 million rent for in Lagos state.
The apartment is barely big enough for a person. The kitchen is so small that not all body types can comfortably stay in it. According to Nkemjika, she suspected the house would not cut it but decided to go take a look since she was around the area.
That was not all. The N1.1m is just basic rent and does not include other charges that could total payment to over N2m. When Nkemjika said that only students could stay there, many wondered where someone in school would get such money from.
