What is the Property ID #?

Every property listing on our website has a Property ID #, found at the very end of the description box. This number serves as an easy way for you to identify specific properties that you want to return to, show someone else or refer to when you call in with questions. From our home page you can simply enter the Property ID # and hit enter to go directly to its property page.

I’m not a fan of working with agents due to past experience. Can’t I just deal with the homeowner?

We understand your frustration. The house hunting process can be a stressful one. We do have a number of properties listed and managed by homeowners themselves but the truth is most times they enlist agents to assist them in finding a tenant faster. We try to work with the best real estate agents out there and offer them training so they can serve you in the best way possible. However, we can engage the services of local real estate professionals to help with your search. It’s faster and it is FREE, please fill the request form here.

Does your website offer land for purchase?

No, we do not. We focus on real estate and have thousands of amazing residential and commercial properties for rent and purchase.

I’m finding a lot of amazing houses and apartments and want to save them for later review. Is that possible?

Definitely! You can favourite properties that you like in order to return to them easily. If you see a house, apartment or office you are interested in just click the heart icon and it will save. On property results, the heart icon is near the bottom right corner of the result. On property pages the heart icon is below the photos display. You may be prompted to create or log in to your personal account.

Can I find properties outside of Kano on

Absolutely! Our search portal features thousands of properties for rent and sale in Kano and beyond. You can find a house, apartment or commercial property in some of the other regions of Nigeria including in major cities like Abuja and Lagos. Simply select the region and locality you are interested in from the filter options.

I need a place to rent for just a few months. Do you have such options available?

Short stays are not the easiest to come by in Kano – Nigeria and are often gone before they can be listed online. However when we do have some available, you can find them by selecting “1-to-6 months” from the “Rent period” drop-down menu on the search results page or be sure to go to the “Short Lease” tab when you start your search from the Sterling Homes Marketplace home page.
