I don't agree with the idea of obtain a loan to build you dream house why build your dream in debt? When you can sit and think of something to do, a man has to cut his coat according to his size and measure up to what he is earning.

Just clear be determined clear out your mind and start saving in that account.

If you don't have a land before the process might be slow but if you do, building will be faster.

3. Saving Analysis.

In the society there are different type of houses, for everyone, to have your own house for any amount you are earning at the end of the month, what you need to is to just calculate the salary for 3 years then set aside 40% of the sum and make enquires from building professional to know what that 40% can cover in building your own house.

Let's assume you earn 40, 000 Naira monthly here's the calculation for that:

For three years.

N40000 × 3 years(36months)=N1,440,000

Find 40% of the sum.

40/100 × N1,440,000=N576,000

Amount for savings every month.

N576,000/36 months=N16000

Which means you will need to be saving N16000 from your ₦40000 every month for three years( 36 months )

And with the savings of 40% for 3 years which is N576,000. The Money can comfortably cover the for two bedroom flat from the foundation up to the window level.

I know you will be doubting how this is achievable, it is possible to achieve this study chose that 30 percent of our income goes into what we cannot account for. you can also calculate all your expenses for a month, you will see you have been spending on unnecessary things.

So imagine you are earning more than N40000 monthly and you are saving 40% out of it, your dream house isn't far from you.

Your analysis are very okay, for those who are determine like you rightly stated, I will only advise that you cut the Savings percentage to 20 to at most 25% depending on your family size. because you must also consider children's education which is most priority for every home now. those who are talking of hunger are so vehement because we cut our coats more than our sizes, I not so, why should you consider taking your wards to private schools when your income is as low as 40k monthly? some wouldn't end at taking them private sch, they will still hire coachers at home for them, so that should they have any contingency they go borrowing to start the solution. For me, Strongly believe with your analysis only the % should be cut down to ensure equilibrium.

I doubt if you will ever live in that house at the end of the day because hunger must have done a deadly blow on you before completing the structure.
