Example: Currently a plot of land in Abijo GRA currently sells between for N8,000,000 and N11,000,000 per plot.

In 5 years it could sell for N40,000,000 or N45,000,000 per plot and in another 10 years, its still going to follow this trend in appreciation in price until it reaches a point of resistance.

At this point it could be selling at N100,000,000, N120,000,000 per plot that’s depending on the level of developments and value that has been added to this location.

For instance, Lekki Phase 1 has already come close to that point of resistance.

About 20 years back, Lands within Lekki phase 1 were selling below N1,000,000 per plot, and there was a high potential of appreciation in price then but now plot in Lekki phase 1 sells between N200,000,000 to N250,000,000 and it has reached its peak appreciation rate as land in Lekki Phase 1 can only appreciate by 1%, 2% or even less.

Therefore anyone who’s currently buying a plot of Land in Lekki Phase 1 is not buying because they are seeking appreciation in price instead they are buying because of development that has evolve around the location.
