  • Three must know rules when selling your property…
  • I made a grave mistake when selling my first property. I had an apartment which was on the market for about six months.

And due to certain changes in the neighbourhood it was in I didn't expect a recovery anytime soon. So, when the tenant I had in the apartment made an offer to purc... ››› more

  • “Government could nationalise everything - And you're still telling us to invest?”
  • When I opened my emails this morning I received a message from Kel. Kel wanted to know if I'm crazy. In short, I recently told you how Zuma plans to turn our property into his new cash cow. There's the land valuation act as well as the new expropriation act that will be signed into law, and in combination these two pieces of law give the president, his ministers and government employees the ... ››› more

  • The mines have been sucked dry; Zuma needs a new cash cow... And he's coming for you!
  • Government set their sights on you and me - on our personal property. None of us are safe from this new policy. The mining industry has long been a target of government. A way for them to suck more taxes out of private business through royalties, profit on taxes, and by forcing mines to ‘create jobs’ which aren’t sustainable.   But with commodities prices as depressed as they ... ››› more

I have been desperate to start my own mini property empire and this is how I ca... ››› more
