Elro Court

Purchase Price: R1.35m
Cashflow: R5 500
ROI: 9.5%

Location: Rosettenville, JHB

This block consists of six 2-bedroom flats. This was my first multi-let investment. It was a scary yet fulfilling adventure. When I bought the property, there were 3 terrible tenants, who I eventually evicted as they were more than 3 months behind on rent. I’ve since sold this investment, as it was not performing as I had hoped due to it being in the wrong area.

Riverglades

Purchase Price: R690k
Cashflow: R1 500
After Flip Profit: R420k
ROI: 25%

Location: Fourways, JHB

This was my first property investment ever. I bought in an area in Fourways JHB. This was before I was educated, and I got lucky with a motivated seller and a great discount. I ended up living in the property for 5 years. After that I rented the property out for a R1 500 cashflow for another 2 years and eventually sold it for R990k, leaving me with an after costs profit of R420k.

Park Street

Purchase Price: £0
Cashflow: £250
ROI: 33.3%

Location: Grimsby, UK

This buy to let was unique as it was my first investment outside of South Africa. Because I wasn’t a UK resident, I couldn’t get financing there. That’s when I decided to do a lease agreement, where I take over the previous landlords debt and I can control the property. This meant that I didn’t have to pay anything for the property, I only had to pay £9 000 for renovations.

Eloff Court

Purchase Price: R2m
Cashflow: R23 000
ROI: 14%

Location: Forest Hill, JHB

This is the most recent investment I’ve made. This was a great investment because I leveraged OPM (Other People’s Money). I only invested R70k from my own pocket, the remaining R2.17m of the closing costs were covered by equity partners and angel investors. The deal’s ROI is 14%, but my actual ROI is 94%, making it my most profitable investment of all time.
