Property investment has always been popular in South Africa, with many people choosing to invest in rental property. The appeal of this type of investment is largely due to the potential for capital growth and rental income. By carefully selecting the right property and managing it effectively, investors can enjoy significant returns on their investment.
There are a lot of South Africans who would like to buy an investment property, but the qualifying criteria for getting a bond is keeping many of them out of the market. Even those who do meet the income requirements face risks, as their entire investment will be exposed to one property in one location. This can be a big risk, as anything could happen to that one property and they would lose everything.
