CAPE TOWN - Real Estate has proven over and over that it is the best Investment you can make, says Jako le Roux of Just Property’s Investment division.
Understanding when, where and how to invest is the key to building a strong property portfolio and becoming financially independent, says Le Roux.
“Savvy investors buy properties, hold on to them, and sell them off once they have gained value. This can either be done by selling off a portion of the portfolio or the entire portfolio. The important factor that needs to be taken into consideration here is time.”
When to Invest
“Your property will never be cheaper than it is today. Determining when to buy is easy – the answer is now; yesterday would be even better if that were possible,” says Le Roux. He asserts that, regardless of where you are in the world, the value of the property is on a steady climb. “This promotes the concept of capital growth: today you buy for less, tomorrow you sell for more, and the longer you hold on to your property, the greater your capital growth. As a long-term investment, it makes sense to start building a property portfolio as early in life as possible. Start small but start strong.”
