As one of the Nigerian states in the south-south region of Nigeria, Delta State is one of the most diverse states in terms of culture, religion, and many other factors, but that’s not what I want to talk about. I would like to give you an idea, or you can say, an insight, into what the cost of renting a house in Delta State is like. I would be telling you the places with the most expensive house rent rates and some of the likely prices to expect. I will also give some tips to consider when you want to rent an apartment in Delta State, so read on.
Okay, to tell you something funny, almost all parts of Delta state are expensive to rent an apartment or a shop. You can find two-bedroom flats for about 400,000-500,000 Naira. expensive right? These houses are usually expensive based on the area in which they can be found. For example, houses in places like Okpanam, Abraka, and GRA Asaba may be expensive, but they have a reasonable amount of power supply, good roads, steady water, and other factors
Yes, despite the fact that there are expensive areas in Delta State to rent an apartment, there are also places in Delta State that are not as expensive as the ones mentioned above, places such as Okwe, Warri, Effurun, and Kwale. In these places, you can get two-bedroom flats for up to 250,000-350,000 Naira. cheap, right? It is important to note that the rent rate depends on the area and the facilities and resources available.
The area in which you stay in Delta state really determines the rent prices and rates. As I previously stated, pay attention to the areas, and even if you don't have much money, I would advise you to stay in a place that doesn't appear to be too comfortable, or at least worth it. Staying in core areas in Delta State is equal to paying extremely high rent prices, and staying in some downtown areas in the state would mean it’s less expensive.
Another important factor that determines the rent rate and how much a particular place will cost is the type of apartment. By this, I mean, a three-bedroom flat, two bedrooms, self-contained or one room and a living room. For example, in Asaba, a one-room and a living room could go for as high as 150,000-200,000 Naira or a three-bedroom room could go for 500,000-600,000 Naira. Just remember, the larger the space, the more rent you will have to pay.
Consider this a tip. Do NOT just pick any apartment you see. It is possible that you could end up finding a place you can afford, but bare in mind that without checking the place first, you might run into certain issues in the future. Some places in Delta experience floods during the rainy season, especially places that are close to the rivers. It may be cheap, but who would want to have flooding problems during the rainy season?
So that’s a wrap. When it comes to picking a place anywhere in Delta State, it is important to first consider the type of apartment, the space available, and the area where the apartment is. By putting these things into consideration, you would be able to budget for the rent payment.
Always remember that when getting an apartment, it is best you deal directly with the landlord or the owner of that apartment. Dealing with agents and agencies could save a lot of money, but you don’t have the time. So yeah, now you have an idea of what to expect if you're planning to relocate to Delta State.
