Seso Global: Story, Founders, Investors & Funding Rounds
Launched in Nigeria in June 2019, Seso has developed a customer relationship management (CRM) portal that enables property developers, agents, and governments to manage their properties, documentation, and transactions on a secure blockchain database.
Once verified, properties are listed on the Seso marketplace where clients can browse properties and interact with further service providers such as banks for mortgages and law firms for title registrations.
Seso Global is an online marketplace that enables a seamless real estate experience, utilizing blockchain to ensure Africa’s real estate transactions are secure and trustworthy.
They allow users to contract all parties in the real estate value chain providing services to:
- Property buyers looking for stress-free transactions
- Property developers looking to sell their properties to the largest market
- Banks looking to increase their mortgage portfolio
- Property service providers looking to reach new clientele
Seso Global’s Marketplace offers a unique one-stop shop for digital real estate transactions.
Through their unique ecosystem of services, they offer buyers access to trusted properties and professional service providers.
This allows for a secured end-to-end property purchasing experience along the entire real-estate value chain.
They operate across sub-Saharan Africa with a current focus on West Africa.
How it Works
The marketplace is available online at www.seso.global and via the Seso Global app – A real estate app available on the Google Play store and the Apple App Store.
The Seso Process
As they only represent verified property developers, selling new or nearly new properties, title searches, and transfers are straightforward.
- Seso Point of Contact: They sell property on behalf of Property Developers and ensure the title can be verified and transferred.
- Concierge Experience: Seso handles the scheduling, negotiations, and access to properties and professional service providers to allow for a seamless purchasing experience.
- Guidance at Every Step: With access to Seso’s panel of trusted lawyers, property management companies, and insurance and finance experts.
- International Offices: Meet with their sales representatives in London, Lagos, and Accra to discuss your transaction in person.
Onboarding Seso Property Developers
Each property developer goes through the Seso onboarding process before they start marketing their properties. They undertake:
- Due Diligence on the Property Developer as a seller.
- Due Diligence on the Property they are selling.
This ensures the buyer is engaged with the correct legal entity that owns a verified title.
Once a buyer has found their dream home, they can engage with their panel of trusted lawyers who will undertake all the necessary legal work to ensure an effective transfer of ownership.
All these professional service providers can be accessed on the Seso marketplace to ensure a risk-free transaction.
They have established relationships with trusted mortgage banks in Nigeria and the UK to give our customers access to competitive mortgage rates.
Their current partners include FCMB UK Limited, Standard Chartered Bank, and Homebase Mortgage Bank.
