Property is one of the top 10 business investments anyone can take part in. Well to be fair, property in good location and good maintenance. It’s better to buy about 4 different types of property. Look at it this way: if you buy 4 houses and end up finish paying for all of them, start renting out 3 of them. A house is not a home so of those 4 houses it’s best to make one your home. Now if you look at renting out your houses, which are paid off, and rent them at 1% of the original price for every week of stay in the year you’re most likely to make half the original price earnings in one year as a profit. So if one of your houses cost R800 000 and you charge 1% which will be R8000 a week for stay, that means at the end of the year you’ll be earning around R416 000 in rental fees. Now let’s not forget the other 2 houses you’re renting so that’s 416 000 x 3 = approximately R1 248 000 in rental profit in one year and about R6 Million over 5 years of renting . Obviously there are various combinations of real estate investment but if those numbers don’t impress you, I don’t know what will. Real estate in a guaranteed winner in investment.
