Multi-let Strategy

Rosettenville Case Study

This is my favourite strategy and where (I believe) the biggest need and therefore biggest opportunity for South African property investing is. +/- 73% (based on a TPN 2018) of South African renters currently spend between R3000 and R7000 per month on rent. Most of the market is looking for low cost, affordable rental housing. The only way you can provide that, while still getting a return, is through multi-lets.

This strategy works well in low income areas like, Berea, Braamfontein, Cosmos City, Rosettenville, Turffontien… as people in this area, want to live there but can’t afford a house on their own. After researching the suburb trends, I decided Rosettenville is my multi-let investment area. I met an estate agent who had 12 blocks of flats on the market. I later discovered all the flats were owned by one man, who was terribly ill and could no longer afford the property. This is known as a distressed seller and is critical to the success of your property business. In property, you make your money when you buy. In order to get a good discount, you need a motivated seller, with a property problem. We can solve that property problem and in return make some money.
