6 ways to finance your construction projects

To get a loan to build a house, you need to understand that collateral is always needed. But not everyone is comfortable with this arrangement.

1. PERSONAL SAVINGS

This is by far the most popular method people are using to build their house, there is no fear of creditors knocking on your door and it gives you a lot of peace of mind.
Honestly, no matter how small your salary is, you can build a house if you put your mind to it. There is always a case where you save from whatever your income is. The study has shown that 30% of the moderate level of what we receive monthly goes to the purchase of very minor goods and junk.
So you can cut down on unnecessary expensive food in expensive restaurants. Sit down, take inventory of unnecessary expenses and start saving just 20% of your income, no matter how small, in 2 years you will start a house of your own, whatever. that you can save will be enough to start your house.
Professionals benefit more from this type, with initial payments, profit sharing and commissions, among others.

2. MORTGAGE AND WORK LOANS

This is more attractive to workers who plan to invest in Real Estate. Although it is mainly used for personal buildings, but if I give you honest advice, it is better that you, a young man or woman, build it, then rent it and let the building pay off the loan while you sit back and collect the rents. So now he uses the dividends to finance another project.

The National Housing Fund continues to be the most attractive room for maneuver for those who want to build with a loan, especially public officials. It is designed by the government to help the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, with less bureaucracy than before and currently offers a maximum of N5m at an interest rate of 6% and a repayment term of 25 years.
This fund can be incorporated through any of the Nigerian mortgage banks.

3. COOPERATIVE AND SECURITY HOUSING PROGRAMS

This method is becoming more popular with the young workforce and many cooperative housing schemes are emerging every day. It employs the same old pattern of operation, only in this case you are expected to own a home. All members pool resources to build houses for each member in areas of choice. This is an alternative to a mortgage for low-income earners, who make a minimum monthly contribution overtime.

Yo. As in mortgage loans, quick completion due to readily available funds.

ii. Sometimes the members buy a large tract of land and divide it among the members which is comparatively cheaper, they get professionals to do the projects in large volume and in turn the professionals charge less due to the large number of jobs. The cost of housing can be reduced by 25% with this method.

iii. It encourages other mutual benefits and promotes friendship.

DISADVANTAGES

Yo. It definitely goes without saying that the cooperative society of choice must be well researched and thoroughly vetted to determine the commitment and integrity of its members. Some members may decide to default and this may lead to the collapse of the cooperative club.

4. SPECULATION OF LAND AND CAPITAL MARKETS

Have you packed in a developing area before, that is still full of greenery? 3 months from now, what you will notice is an increase in the influx of people from that location, whether they are trying to secure their land or are encouraged by you in moving to the location, and are sure to meet with neighbors to talking, doing business, or probably security, whatever, there’s always a trend of people moving somewhere because someone like you just moved. So what happens? As you get more traffic, property values ​​in that area will naturally increase.
So when you buy a piece of land, why not make two or more? As you build one, the other pieces of land will appreciate in value, sell them and use them to complete your resident house.

ADVANTAGE

Yo. Completion of work on time due to availability of funds

ii.If you are sure of the location, you can sell the building and make a quick profit due to the quick completion

DISADVANTAGES

Yo. Warranty Request

ii. bureaucratic bottlenecks

6. DIVIDENDS ON HIGH YIELD INVESTMENT PROGRAMS (HYIP) AND STOCKS

Some smart young couples are making use of this program to develop their homes in a stressful way. Although high return, high risk, this is by far the best and easiest way that I can recommend to anyone building their home. Before presenting problems with most HYIPs, there is a high yield investment program promoted by an oil and gas company in Nigeria called Nospectus, you invest N450,000 in their company and they in turn at the end of each month they will be paying you N40,000 in 12 months you would have done 100% turnover, and the good thing about this company is that you can withdraw your capital of N450,000 anytime you want (they also have Clubfreedom among others).

One couple increased theirs to 200,000 naira a month, that is 5 beds, and they built their chosen house with so much stress that they imagine having 200,000 naira a month as additional salary without any extra effort. “Note: Although I’m not recommending them, I know quite a few people on this scheme.
There are also many HYIPs on the Internet, but you should check out those who are already involved before you get scammed. The least risky are buying stocks, bonds, etc. and use the earnings to build your house.

“My general advice is to start small”

ADVANTAGE

Yo. Very easy to generate a steady flow of cash for your building.

ii. The more investment, the more money to help finance your construction project.

DISADVANTAGES

Yo. High risk

ii. Stocks can plummet

iii.Companies can pack tomorrow

IV. A wrong decision by the investment company can lead to the closure of the business and affect you.
