Leading online real estate marketplace Lamudi has launched the first property hotline for the Nigerian community. The Dial-4-Home hotline has been developed as an extension to Lamudi’s market-leading Internet platform to extend access to the country’s largest database of properties to the estimated 50 million mobile users who do not have access to the internet via smartphones and tablets.
Many view Nigeria as a market with significant potential for Internet-based businesses, with over 60 percent of all Internet connections made from an estimated 12 million smartphone and tablet devices. However, there are more than four times as many mobile subscribers who do not have access to the Internet via their device. With the launch of Dial-4-Home, Lamudi aims to enable property-seekers without an Internet connection to access the same kind of service that users enjoy at Lamudi.com.ng.
“Technological innovation is not only about what you can achieve on the Internet,” said Obi Ejimofo, Managing Director of Lamudi Nigeria. “We need to ensure technology remains relevant, accessible and valuable to the broadest spectrum of users. We developed Dial4Home to assist those property-seekers with little or no access to the Internet. Through voice calls and SMS, they can now search a wide selection properties, from affordable housing to luxury accommodation.” he said.
“Ever since our launch just over a year ago, we always had the intention to bring Dial-4-Home to the market. In 2014 we focused most of our efforts on building the broadest possible database of properties, real estate agents and property developers to ensure maximum customer choice. Now we are extending that choice to as many Nigerians as possible,” Mr Ejimofo said.
By calling the Dial-4-Home number, house-hunters can inquire about properties for sale or rent. Users will be able to get over-the-phone access to listings from over 7,000 property agents and developers who currently list their properties on the Lamudi Nigeria website.
