The year was 1992. I remembered vividly the account of this day. I and my twin brother were playing one-touch football in front of our mom’s shop at Idi Ape, Iwo road side at Ibadan, when this new third-generation Honda Prelude approached from far. There is something about the car that screams for attention. It was a compact two-door coupe. The third generation of Honda Prelude featured a distinctive design to draw people’s attention with the pop-up headlights introduced for the first time on a Prelude.
The car stopped not far away from us as we both watched and this man neatly dressed in well starched native attire alighted from the car. We don’t know that man and we are not interested in knowing him, just that car! That car was unbelievably elegant! And we loved it!
Fast forward to 2021, as I remembered yesterday, I just hope that man is not a team member of the fave of the moment gang – those who want to use everything latest regardless of their status just to have that feel-good feeling! While it is not a bad thing to buy new stuff if you can afford it, the bad thing is for anyone to only have sight of the moment and forget the future.
There are hundreds of people who use the latest most expensive phone, wear the latest most expensive hair, but do not own half of this stuff they currently hold in assets or investment anywhere! What a sad way to live. For anyone living this type of lifestyle, I hope you know all these stuffs are not assets but liabilities because they are properties that depreciate in value! Imagine if someone parks a Honda Prelude 1992 model in front of your office today. I believe the only thing that may call your attention to the car is maybe if the driver park where the car is not supposed to park! Nobody will see that car today and desire it!
Apart from those expensive clothes phones, and possibly cars, do you have any asset or investment that guarantees wealth for you in five years no matter the direction of the economy? Yes, the economy of the world is volatile and can go up and down. However, there is one investment whose direction is constantly upward – real estate investment! Land and property assets will always appreciate in value every year as long as the earth remains!
The one I want to discuss in this article today is that you do not have to be a moneybag to become an investor! If you are interested in a Real Estate business, here is the thing, you do not need to own land in one obscure area because you cannot afford to buy land in a highbrow environment! There is a company called Oxford International group and they are into real estate development. This company has been magnanimous enough to create a participative investment portfolio for you to be part of the business earnings! The investment package is called Buildvest! With a minimum of One hundred thousand nairas (₦100,000), you will be getting an ROI of 35% after 12 months!
Even if you don’t have funds to invest at the moment let’s talk about how you can start working towards becoming an investor even with little funds in legit and secure businesses to generate good ROI every year! Being an investor is a habit that anyone can cultivate and I can teach you if you are interested!
Let’s connect and talk about investment!
