The company also helps clients do due diligence on properties they want to buy and even help in forecasting same to ensure maximum profit for its customers.
“We watch over property anywhere in Nigeria. If you log on to our website: www.watchmyproperty.ng you’ll get more information. The service is for a token and for those who are buying from us be rest assured that these services are free from us. But if you are buying from other people or you have bought already there is a fee. The fee depends on the kind of services we are going to offer to the client,” Owomoyela said.
“People who invest or desire to invest in real estate in Nigeria should not be scared. Be rest assured that whatever property you want to purchase or project you want to develop, we can be your third eye and fight for your interest until the end. We do project support services, we have caterpillars, we have architects, engineers we have masons that work with us. Those who work with us are top of the notch.

Owomoyela insists that with Next Gear Resources, everyone including low-income earners can own a home in Abuja.
“Some people were paying N1,000 per day. A hair dresser, a mechanic or artisans can at least save up N1000 per day. For instance, if your land is 300,000 or 250,000 you can pay within a year by paying N1000 daily. So this makes it easy for everyone to own a property.
“People wire money into our account. You may not have to come to us, we can come to your office to collect these monies, through appointed agents that work directly under us. They will issue you a receipt for every deposit. This is just like a contribution system and at the end of the year, you own a property.
“It is possible for you to buy a land from us and let it be for about 3, 4 or 8 years. It depends on how you settle with us and we are going to help you watch over it with nobody encroaching on your land. You have your papers, we keep your land. That is why we are into land banking. So you can buy for your children unborn.
“All our lands are guaranteed before we purchase a land we do our due diligence, we conduct research on the land, we conduct research on the area, we also conduct research on government policies about these areas. Most of us have legal backgrounds so we understand,” the lawyer said.
