Now you can own a slice of paradise and profit handsomely in the process
If you missed the South African property boom of the early 2000s, you’re probably kicking yourself.
Buying property ten or 20 years ago in holiday hotspots like Umhlanga and Ballito would have delivered exceptional returns.
Well, I want to introduce you to another property boom that’s happening right on your doorstep!
But it’s not just any boring property, it’s the best property you can get your hands on…
The type of property you don’t have to live in until you’re ready to retire. Best of all, it will generate millions in rental income while it waits for you to move in.
Finally you have the opportunity to invest in a booming market in one of the most luxurious paradises on the continent… Mozambique.
Your paradise beach house is waiting for you in the fourth fastest growing economy in the world!
The African Economic Outlook delivered some exceptional statistics positioning Mozambique as one of the fastest growing economies in the world…
In 2014, real GDP grew by 7.6% and growth is expected to remain strong, at 7.5% and 8.1% in 2015 and 2016, respectively, boosted by the construction, transportation and communications sectors.
Large projects and infrastructure development related to mining in the centre and north of the country offer a unique opportunity spread out developments, improve services and encourage trading between rural areas.

Stocks, bonds or fixed deposits that you need to hold for years for a small return will not do the trick. What you need now is...
Now you can… Profit from my home business plans without any risk!
Something that can help you make extra money quickly, almost instantly
Something that you could even have your spouse do while you stick to your regular job
Something easy enough that even retired people can use to generate a little extra income on the side
The economy is growing almost three times faster than South Africa, and will continue to do so for at least the next decade…
Right now, it’s spending billions on infrastructure development. It’s upgrading its roads, railways, harbours and other infrastructure and demand for housing is rising sharply.
Investment across all these infrastructure sectors totals $34 billion, almost three times more than that of Botswana.
And, since more labour is needed to complete these projects, more people are entering the country to buy more houses.
This increased demand means your paradise property will boom by 15.9% a year for the next ten years.
So what’s behind all this infrastructure spending?
Mozambique’s energy resource bonanza is the catalyst behind this huge growth Mozambique’s export coal: On the 14th of September 2011, Mozambique exported its first batch of coal – 35,000 tons – from its Beira seaport terminal.
This move added the country to the global list of suppliers feeding China’s voracious coal appetite.
And it’s not going to stop there. Over the past two years, Mozambique’s government has granted 112 licenses to 45 national and foreign companies to mine coal.
Right now, these projects are producing 5.93 million tons of coal. Over the next three years, this will rise to 110 million tons a year.
But coal isn’t the only catalyst driving investments in Mozambique…
Colossal natural gas reserves: An American based oil and natural gas company, announced finding
623 trillion cubic metres of gas at the Area 1 block Rovuma Basin in northern Mozambique.
Just one month later, a consortium led by ENI (Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi S.p.A. – an Italian oil company) found nearly 424 trillion cubic metres of natural gas reserves approximately 40km off the Cabo Delgado coast.
If proven correct, the cumulative natural gas reserves will rank Mozambique 4th in the world for natural gas reserves, behind gas giants Russia, Iran and Qatar.
These reserves present potential windfall revenues of over R2.5 trillion and will reshape Mozambique’s economic development.
Three reasons why Mozambique’s massive untapped resources will transform its economy and the property market With all these resources and increasing foreign direct investment, the Mozambican economy will see exceptional growth. The amount of jobs that’ll be created from these opportunities is huge.
And with that comes improving the welfare of its citizens. This will leak into the property market.
Add to this the fact that wealthier foreigners are also setting up residence in the country as their companies move into Mozambique and it’s easy to understand why investors are scrambling to get involved.
Right now, the Mozambican middle-class is growing rapidly and urbanisation will drive demand for housing even higher. As Mozambicans get richer, they’ll start buying more and more properties and follow the same route many South Africans did when they bought second and third homes for investment and leisure purposes.
This will cause a property price explosion. And means you currently have a very small window of opportunity to get in before the Mozambican property boom takes off!
Now that you know why Mozambique is such a great investment destination and why its ongoing economic growth will cause property to soar, here are the steps you should take to invest in property there.

And now you can too…
The five essentials steps you need to take to invest in Mozambican property today
Step 1: Location is key
You need to invest in a holiday home that’s close enough for you to drive or fly to without feeling like it’s a massive effort.
And that’s what makes major tourism spots Inhambane, Vilanculos and Maputo such good investments. According to Citi Private Bank and UK property group Knight Frank’s Wealth Report, the Mozambican capital of Maputo is the world’s top up-and-coming location for business, fun and romance.
Step 2: Find the holiday resorts and developments in your area of choice
You can do this by searching property listing websites on the Internet or contacting local estate agent like www.mozambicanrealestate.com

Inhambane is undergoing a property explosion – everywhere you look new developments and offerings are springing up.

Praia da Barra
Praia da Cocos
And Guinjata Bay
Re-Max, Chas Everitt or Pam Golding International all have offices in Mozambique and experts who are willing to help you find the perfect property for you to invest in.
Step 3: Ask for certificates so you can actually own your property
The biggest misconception about property ownership in Mozambique is the “99 year lease”! (This type of ownership means you never own the land, you only have use of the buildings on the land for 99 years.)
But here’s the thing: It doesn’t exist when it comes to holiday property!
You just need to ensure you buy a property that comes with a “real registered right” (title deed). This applies to all new developments in tourism-designated areas.
These developments – whether for timeshare, fractional ownership or holiday homes – are subject to the Periodic Housing Decree. This means you can own (instead of lease) your holiday home in this booming economy.
So before you put in an offer, check all the legal and regulatory rules have been adhered to and that you’re buying the property not leasing it. And make sure you ask your developer for the certificate that confirms he’s adhered to these rules to prove it.

Step 4: Buy your property with the help of your local bank
Instead of dealing with a bank you have no relationship with, you can get your local bank to finance your property purchase in Mozambique.
Why do they allow this? Because they want to cash in on Mozambique’s property boom as much as you do.
So, you need to approach them about getting a bond.
Once you’ve bought and taken ownership of your property, there’s one last thing you need to do…

Step 5: Sit back and enjoy your investment
Plan a holiday to your slice of paradise.
And don’t forget the best thing about owning a property on unspoilt beaches: The potential to generate enough income to cover your bond repayments!
Right now, many South Africans are looking for an alternative holiday destination to Clifton, Plett and Ballito. Mozambique’s pristine paradise beaches offer what they’re looking for.
And I’m sure you have friends and family that would rent your property for a few weeks during the holidays.
You can also arrange with an estate agent to manage the process for you. (Although when you do, you’ll need to tell them when you’ll be using your property so they never rent it out when you want to use it.)
Renting out your property when you’re not using it means you’ll effectively holiday for free year in and year out!
Bottom line: Buy your property in paradise today!
So what are you waiting for? Buy Mozambican beach property today so you can enjoy the white sand beaches, the warm turquoise blue water under the African sun and have access to an investment that should grow by at least 15.9% a year!
