This building consists of 9 x 2-bedroom apartments located in the South of Johannesburg. It is currently fully occupied with ZERO delinquent behaviour – which is a reminder that when you provide a good product and have a detailed vetting process, you can avoid the risk of investing in affordable housing. I only have R100k of my own capital invested in this deal, the rest was financed through equity partners. It is and continues to be one of my best investments.

This student commune houses 14 students (some NSFAS, some private) and generates a WHOPPING R49k monthly for 10 months. The demand for student housing is so high, that it is fully occupied. The bank gave us 100% finance + R350k of future equity. We only had to put in R160k of our own money. In the first year, we got our initial capital invested back. Now that is a GREAT investment.

This building consists of 6 x 3-bedroom apartments located in the South of Johannesburg. It is currently fully occupied with good paying tenants. This deal required a lot of renovations and an ugly evictions to remove a very delinquent tenant… but now that the property is managed correctly and a good product has been provided to the tenants, they are all happy and paying on time. I have zero of my own capital invested in this deal, it was all financed through equity partners.
