Lagos State, which ranks among the most populated States in Nigeria, and rightly so, is the economic hub of Nigeria, that is, the commercial capital of the country. It is a very cosmopolitan city with many top destinations that are world class, talking about the Banana Islands, the Ikoyis, the Victoria Islands, the Victoria Garden Cities, the Lekkis, the Magodos, the Ikejas, to mention but a few. As a result of the State being the melting pot of different peoples, cultures and businesses, it has seen its cost of living rise significantly over the years and as such, owning a plot of land has become something of a tall dream for many people who wish to become landlords.

Many years ago, people who wished to own at least a plot of land in Lagos State could afford it because the lands of yesteryear were quite affordable and with the State continually developing into the modern day Mega City that it is today, this has seen the cost of lands skyrocket to almost unimaginable figures and as such, only the filthy rich can afford as many lands as possible in many parts of Lagos State. Not to worry though, as there are many places still where you can purchase cheap plots of land in the State and fulfill your dreams of being a land owner.

One thing about land is that it appreciates, and this is why it is very good to purchase one very early so that you can avoid paying through your nose to get one in the future. The land may be bought and allowed to lie dormant after which you can resell if you so wish for a maximum profit in the future, or you can build your house and become a landlord, collecting steady rents per year. Whichever your choice, the various places to buy cheap lands in Lagos State, while not in the most affluent of places, are located at some of the best areas for comfortable middle class people, that is, people who have good jobs and/or businesses, and are not poor, but are not stupendously rich.
