Truth be told, there's a heap of things I wish someone had told me about when I first got started in property back then. The time, the money it could've saved me... I sure as heck would have gone a lot further a lot faster if I'd had a clue about some things. ... ››› more

  • Two signs that signal the end of the property market bull-run
    Over the past 10 years, the South African listed property sector has easily outperformed its peers. Investors who've jumped on this rally early, would have made a fortune investing in JSE property companies.

  • Should I buy investment property using a company?
  • Should I buy investment property using a company?
    One of the questions I'm most often asked is “Should I invest in property using a company, or should I invest in my personal capacity?” Whenever I hear this question I want to ask investors WHY they want to invest through a company. You see, as with most things investing there's no clear cut, one-size-fits-all answer. There are a number of things to consider before you invest as a ... ››› more

    I recently told investors I'm not hot the South African Retail Sector. In short, the FNB Consumer Confidence index sits at its lowest level since 1985.

The sector I'm about to reveal to you has been thoroughly... ››› more
