How Can I Become a Member of REDAN?
The Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN) is the primary organized private sector organization recognized by the government and sanctioned by the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) – Nigeria’s main mortgage lender – to help Nigerians obtain cheap mass housing.
The Association has grown in credibility and prestige since its inception in 2002. With over 1,500 members, the Association is capable of meeting the anticipations of all its decision-makers and serving as an effective pressure group that will drive through legislation aimed at improving the supportive framework for mass housing delivery at the National Assembly; play a role to and reshape the housing finance policies of the Central Bank of Nigeria FMBN, Prim; and drive through legislation aimed at enhancing the supportive framework for mass housing provision at the National Assembly.
REDAN is the first stop for federal, state, and local governments, NGOs, and private sector organizations, and also international shareholders, who want to build a housing program or join in housing development in Nigeria.
In the housing and real estate development industry, REDAN interacts and collaborates with all complementing institutions and organizations. It collaborates closely with the Federal Ministry of Lands, Housing, and Urban Development, which has since assigned a fully operational desk to REDAN’s activities. From the integrated National Land Bank to REDAN-sponsored projects, the ministry is a primary source of land.
The Federal Mortgage Bank (FMBN) funds both developers and PMls, and is the largest secondary mortgage lender in the country. REDAN is actively working to grow this market through the national capital market and international sources in order to assure consistent and trouble-free funding for the implementation of mass housing delivery for Nigerians.
The Federal Government now relies on REDAN and its members to implement comprehensive housing development programs that will be sustainable at all levels of the country; the recently revised National Housing Policy emphasized REDAN’s role in facilitating housing provision in order to achieve the goal of housing for all.
