Furnished Apartments For Rent Lagos Nigeria - Free Serviced Apartment Tips

Furnished apartments for rent Lagos Nigeria - Most people do not know the difference between serviced apartments and furnished apartments or furnished flat. Many potential tenants looking for apartment for rent in Lagos Nigeria often confuse one for the other.

The result? Many request for fully serviced apartment and expect to see an apartment that is furnished. When they don't, they feel cheated.

The goal of this section is to help you understand the language of Nigeria real estate agents and consultants so that you can make the right choices and get real value for your money.

For starters, you need to understand that real estate terminologies vary from country to country and even from state to state within the same country.

Of course, there are general terms that do not change irrespective of the country you reside. But then, there are also new terminologies peculiar to certain territories or nation. The words furnished apartments and serviced apartment are two of those terms.

Now that you understand this, let's deal with the issue at hand.

So, what do Nigeria real estate agents mean when they talk about serviced apartments, fully serviced apartments, and furnished apartments for rent?

A serviced apartment, in Lagos Nigeria real estate terminology, means an apartment that has services like . . .

  • Standby generator (this is necessary because the public power supply is unreliable. Some areas in Lagos can be out of power or electricity for days.)
  • Security
  • Borehole water (public water supply is unreliable in areas where it exist and totally none existent in most areas of Lagos Nigeria) and
  • DSTV

    A fully serviced apartment, on the other hand, has much more services than what a serviced apartment has. The services in a fully serviced apartment in Lagos Nigeria include:

  • Standby generator for 24/7 electricity
  • Borehole with water treatment plant
  • Fully fitted kitchen with gas cooker, central gas supply, grill, micro wave oven etc
  • 24/7 security
  • CCTV
  • DSTV
  • At least a television
  • Air conditioning system
  • Refrigerator
  • Water heating systems
  • Swimming pool
  • Telephone/intercom
  • Squash court
  • Lawn tennis court
  • . . . and more - depending on the oversea exposure, large-heartedness and creativity of the owner. So, the list above is by no means exhaustive. But it does give you an idea of the kind of facilities you expect from a fully serviced apartment.

    In Lagos Nigeria, real estate agents also refer to fully serviced apartments as luxury apartments. Furnished apartments for rent are a different kettle of fish altogether.

    As the name implies, furnished flats are . . . furnished.

    Wait. What kind of furniture or furnishings can you expect from a Lagos apartment that is furnished?

    A furnished flat or duplex usually have . . .

  • Living room furniture
  • Dinning hall furniture
  • At least a television
  • DSTV
  • Rugged, tiled, or marble floor
  • A fitted kitchen with kitchen utensils

    A furnished apartment can either be fully serviced or simply serviced.

    Another thing to remember . . . a furnished flat or duplex cost more to rent than the regular serviced apartment. And that is understandable.

    Simply put, the property owner has to consistently maintain the quality of service he offers. As you know, home furniture as well as fittings and fixtures deteriorate with time. Hence, luxury and furnished flat owners charge much more than what regular apartment owners charge so they can offset the bill of the furnishings and cost of replacements due to wear and tear.
