The Nigeria Mortgage Refinance Company (NMRC) has received another industry recognition with an award for Housing and Mortgage Market Innovation.

The award was presented to NMRC at the concluding dinner for the 11th Abuja Housing Show which held at the International Conference Center, Abuja on Wednesday 19th July 2017.

The Nigerian Housing and Construction Industry Awards dinner, as the event is tagged cited the innovative and catalytic role that NMRC is playing in stimulating sustainable growth and development of the housing and mortgage market in Nigeria as key reason for the award.

They stated that NMRC’s leading role in the development of transparent standards and systems is helping to boost investor confidence in the housing sector and laying the foundation for a vibrant housing market.

Some of the initiatives they outlined include the introduction of uniform underwriting standards for processing mortgage loans, institutionalizing of mortgage and foreclosure laws to facilitate mortgage loan recovery and the mortgage market system which consolidates the fragmentation of the key systems and processes in the housing value chain together for greater cost and operational efficiency.

At NMRC we are focused on ensuring that we build a strong and vibrant housing and mortgage market that investors will have confidence and that will also provide affordable housing to more Nigerians”.
