5.0 Summary of Finding, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary of Findings

The study has shown that real property development is a specialized form of investment and normally, requires the highest skill involving the highest risk because of the large capital requirement, which is mostly granted by the Federal Mortgage Bank, Insurance company, merchants banks and commercial banks. Each of them is structured to fully participate in mortgage financing.

The study revealed hat within Nigeria money the interest rate structure is very low and this has serious implication on housing finance. They always emphasize role of interest rate as a means of regulating the cost of credit to encourage investment.

It is also discovered that individual borrowers has a misconception of government intentions fdue to lack of adequate information. Borrowers felt that government was rendering unlimited housing assistance in monetary terms. They failed to realize that financial institutions were in business: hence, the need ofr regular monthly repayment of both loan and interest was neglected therein, borrowers were of the opinion that the lenders would not foreclose the property until the term of the mortgage is terminated.

More so, borrower’s belief that except the final installment of an approved loan is received, they cannot be put on prepayment.

Politics is also another factor to consider in the establishment since the bank is owned by the federal government, it belongs to the ruling party. Thus , if you are not from the ruling party, you cannot be considered , since the loan consideration is purely not on merit. Though, the project may be unviable, but so far you are from the ruling party one will be considered qualify. This is closely related to favourism and corruption. The person may also be strongly connected to people at the top , through this connection he or she will be considered qualify for the loan.

5.2 Conclusion

A lot of improvement has been recorded in the rate of real property development generally, over the years the current economic recession notwithstanding, much has to be done to the increase in the prices of building materials overtime. Also , the real estate financial also contributed, it could not be actually ascertained as most financial institution fails to given the minimum and maximum loan, they give out as it was claimed to be confidential information. But basically, it can be inferred that there is no room for improvement on their part as most of them are still operating below the full capacity of the federal government approved guidelines.

5.3 Recommendation

Investment in real property is done of the foundation upon which the economy of the nation is built . in view of this adequate attention should be given to it. It is on these factor that following recommendations are made :

i. Public Enlightment:

The lender should educate and enlighten the borrows on the financial implication of borrowing money for building houses for owner occupation or for commercial purpose. Financial implication set in from the beginning with awareness for recovery of the loan borrowed and variation in repayment of loan monthly in case of increase in interest should be explained. They should orientate borrower on the involvement of government policy directly in real property development , because it is very important. All future contingencies tht may arise in the future should be staed such as inflation and all the remedies that may take place on case of default.
Finally, the understanding of what mortgage borrowing entails should be revealed to the borrowers

ii. Enforcement of Government Regulations:

Real estate financial institution should agree with government government regulation on financing because, the financial institutions are only engaging in real estate financing at their own discretion. The government should not enforce their regulation that would not favour the borrowers or mortgagor.

iii. Good Human Relation:

It has been note that the good human relation from both mortgagor and mortgagee is one of the major factors that determines the success of the business practices. There must be mutual trust and respect for each party.
