At HouseAfrica, we’ve combined innovative technological solutions with deep investing expertise to create a platform that helps any investor own shares in multiple properties across Nigeria.
What do we do?
We divide housing projects into shares (measured in square meters (SQM)) and allow users to own them and enjoy annual returns from the rents.
Our platform and team do the hard work of property acquisition, maintenance, and portfolio management for you — all while our assets sustain the strong investment performance that real estate is famous for: 4.5%-20% historical net annualized returns.
However, we know that any investment represents an important decision by the investor. With that in mind, we’ve put together this short guide, helping you understand some of the most important elements of the HouseAfrica investment experience.
Why Real Estate?
Real estate is one of the most dynamic investment classes in the world. Real estate is the only major asset class that produces high yields, can be efficiently leveraged for massive gains, has the security of a hard asset that you can see and touch (intrinsic value regardless of an income stream), and provides some of the best tax advantages.
How does it work?
It typically takes less than 5 minutes to create an account and begin investing with HouseAfrica.

How does an investor potentially earn returns?
Real estate investments typically generate returns in two forms:
- Dividends (Income) — Revenue generated on an ongoing basis through a reliable cash flow, like tenants paying rent. HouseAfrica pays out earned dividends to investors on a yearly basis.
- Appreciation — The increase of a property’s overall value over time. Our platform updates yearly price index on the invested properties. So, this determines the price of the shares yearly for investors that wand to sale after holding period.
What are the properties like?
HouseAfrica contains both residential and commercial real estate deals, including single-family and multi-family rental properties, for-sale housing, School hostels, hotels, retail space, and office buildings.

Our ability to identify high-quality, opportunistic investments is at the core of our platform’s historical success. Only a fraction of the properties we see meet our selective standards — we typically accept less than 1% of the thousands of potential deals we review every year.
