Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Church of God, RCCG, was specific when asking God for an accommodation. He did not ask for a house, instead, he asked for a city. The dream has since become a reality with the advent of the Redeemer’s City, also known as the Redemption Camp on a massive area of land along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The city is replete with modern infrastructure that makes it stand tall among world-class cities, while neighbouring communities that were hitherto obscure are now taking advantage of this and daily attracting residents in their large numbers. One of such communities is Shimawa.

Shimawa, which was once a very quiet agrarian community behind the Redemption Camp was not different from other peaceful villages living on subsistence farming. About 20 years ago, what used to be the main attraction to Shimawa, which is about five kilometres from the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, was the availability of foodstuffs in large quantities and their relatively cheaper prices than what obtains in Lagos markets. When people say they are going to Shimawa, you can guess their mission; to buy foodstuffs, but not land as it is the case today. A plot of land then, was far less than N50,000.

Shimawa is benefitting greatly from the spill-over effect of developmental growth of Lagos, far more than any other neighbouring location. This is not only due to its closeness, but the road network that connects it with Lagos, Ibadan, Abeokuta, Sagamu and Benin City, is also of immense advantage to property development.

Work in progress

Today, people working in Ikeja, Victoria Island, Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Lekki,  Apapa and similar commercial locations live in Shimawa due to ease of access. Besides, the expansion of the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway is further boosting property development on the axis. Although, the road is a little busier now, but on a normal day, Shimawa  is about twenty-five minutes drive from Ojota end of Lagos.

The trend among individual property owners is to acquire about four plots of land, develop one for personal residence and reserve the remaining for sale after appreciation over a period of time. Some who are interested in property investments are acquiring more acres of land, say fifty or hundred, to resell in the future. A lot of people temporarily use such land for agricultural purposes, even though; it is their goldmine in the future.

Shimawa is closely trailing Lekki axis in terms of residential estates development. Presently, not fewer than fifty estates are being developed, while some have completely sold their Phase 1 and now moving to Phase 2 or 3. Leading estates like Adron Homes’ City of David;  Glass House; and First Neighbourhood Park blazed the trail. Their success stories today form the basis for more investors going into “site and service” schemes in the community.

Apart from flourishing residential developments, the axis is also home to several commercial establishments, educational institutions as well as religious organisations. In fact, no picture of Shimawa would be complete if no mention is made of Redeemer’s University and Secondary Schools, and several other private schools.

About ten years ago, a plot and an acre of land were not more than N100,000 and N500,000 respectively,  although, a plot could be as high  as N150,000 if it is within planned estates. However, cost of land has increased tremendously over the years. A plot (with a length of 36 metres and 18 metres in breadth) now ranges between N800,000 and N1.5 million depending on the owners, location and  available documents. Although there are cheaper land on the axis, but such land may not be too far from being a jungle. So, before you buy land there, it is advisable to visit the site to know if it is developed to an habitable stage to merit immediate occupation, unless you want to buy now and develop later.

Work in progress on a site

Apart from vacant land, some estates are offering various types of houses for sale, either as carcass (comprising only the foundation, block walls and roof) or a completely finished building. If you are buying a carcass, which is normally cheaper, you will be required to finish the building to your taste, but at your own cost. The advantage is that you will be able to determine the choice of materials and finish at your pace. The cost of a 2-bedroom bungalow en-suite with kitchen, living-room, and veranda is between N2. 5 million and N3 million if you are making outright payment, but could be slightly higher if you are paying installmentally over a period of six or twelve months. Similarly, the cost of a 3-bedroom bungalow is between N3 million and N4.5 million. The rental value for this type of houses is between N100,000 and N200,000 per annum.

Either you buy a piece of land or a finished house; you are entitled to documents like Receipt of Purchase, Allocation Letter, Survey Plan, Deed of Assignment and Global Certificate of Occupancy depending on the owners.

Let me invite you to come and live in Shimawa, a serene and secured neighbourhood. It is a fast-growing community with solid ground that makes building construction very easy with ease of getting building materials supply.
