Lagos Mainland is the part of Lagos that housed the state capital when the metropolis was still the seat of the Federal Government. The mainland is a composed of people from all walks of life. Unlike the Island, land in mainland Lagos is mainly dry land. They are moderately priced, and for the most part, they are not as expensive as land on the Island. The mainland consists of places like Ikeja, Ebutte Metta and Yaba.
Bigger parcels of land which are available at cheaper options can be found on the outskirts of town and the suburbs, like Badagry, Abule Egba, Ikorodu etc. while more centralized parts of town are smaller and more expensive. It mostly only in these suburbs that you can get virgin lands now.
Buying land for sale in Lagos Mainland yields good returns on investments. This is largely due to the fact that most lands on the mainland now are developed for commercial purposes, because many corporate organizations are now setting up head offices on the mainland.
Most of the properties lying on the major roads are commercial, but plenty of plots of land for sale and rent are available both for commercial or residential development. The majority of residential properties are therefore in areas with less traffic and off the major roads.
There are good access roads that are tarred and connect easily with the third mainland bridge which also links with Lagos Island. They also connect with areas of high commercial activities like Oshodi, Computer Village and Mushin. The roads are well-lit, due to the presence of the street lights.
There are several educational institutions on the mainland, providing education and child care services from daycare to even university level, by virtue of the presence of polytechnics, colleges of education, universities, and satellite campuses of various higher institutions.
Expensive areas include places like Ikeja GRA and Magodo while less expensive areas include places like Orile, Ipaja and Ikotun. There are open markets and big shopping malls such as the famous one in Ikeja. There is also a bubbling nigh life as well in Lagos mainland.
