How you can profit from SARS R984 billion tax revenue
When it comes to taking your cash, we all can agree that the South African Government takes the cake.
In fact, government is picking up the pace when it comes to collecting your money. In 10 years, SARS revenue has ballooned from R302 billion to nearly R1 trillion today.

It’s called “The Reverse Income Tax Fund” and if you invest in it today, you’re almost guaranteed to collect great pay-outs, twice a year.
I’m talking pay-outs like R700, R1,400 , R2,100 and more.

Three hot ways to tap into property investments and increase long-term returns

1: Start at home – Milk the increase in demand for rental property 

If you’re living in a large house, with ample space that’s far too big for you and your family, consider breaking the house up into two or three smaller residential units. Keep the best part of the home to yourself, and then divide the rest of the property into smaller units that you can rent out.
Of course, this will require some capital input, you could decide to dip into your bond, take a personal loan or cash in some investments.
Here are three tips to keep down the cost of your renovations and maximise your potential rental income:
  • Introduce a communal garden, kitchen and lounge
  • Use drywall to divide rooms - It’s more affordable than brick and mortar
  • Build small en-suite bathrooms to attract a better quality tenant 

2: Consider buying flats in unpopular suburbs

Most property investors agree that flats tend to generate a more stable return. They’re easier to market, maintain and are much cheaper to buy than a three bedroom house. To maximise the return on your property investment, you should consider buying flats in area where rental demand is high.
Often, these are not your most popular suburbs...
Berea a “less than desirable” suburb in the Johannesburg CBD, doesn’t have the best reputation for safety. Yet, because it’s located in the CBD, demand for flat rental in that area is high. You could buy a one bedroom flat in the area for as little as R130,000 and rent that same property out for R3,000 to R4,500 a month.

3: Look for flats with great garden spaces 

If you decide to investment in an apartment in the city centre, remember, people love fresh air and space to relax. When buying a flat to invest in, consider ground units where there’s space for a garden. These flats could bring in 10% more rental income than units with no garden.
Remember to keep the garden well-maintained. A well kept property attracts a better quality tenant. Keep the garden space simple, neat and attractive.
Even though now is the perfect time to invest in property, you still need to do thorough research into the property you decide to buy.

Start off with the investment property that gives you the best potential in terms of rent or room for appreciation in value. But don’t forget, you can’t control all factors with property investing and things could change in the future that could have an impact on your property.

All I kept thinking was “That’s R10,000 lost in oblivion”
I’d been talking to this lady for close to an hour and up until this point I thought her to be intelligent and well informed, but then she said the words that shattered my assumptions – “I had R10,000 to play with so I dabbled in penny shares for a while, lost all my money though, but I guess it’s to be expected”.
I tried so hard to keep quiet, but couldn’t hold back – “Did you do any research on the companies you invested in? Did you spread your risk? Did you talk to any experts?” The questions spewed out of my mouth without end and looking at her bewildered face, I saw the problem clear as day – Most investors think investing in penny shares is like gambling. They put their money down with no intention of gaining a cent, they simply do it for the thrill.
Question is, do they know how much money they can make from penny shares?
100% gain, 500% gain, 1,000% gain… I’ve achieved these returns myself, so why couldn’t she?
Well, she can and so can you, but without the right tools and without the right knowledge, investing in penny shares may very well remain a gamble.
That is why I urge you to attend my Red Hot Penny Shares Bootcamp on the 30th of July. I want to show you how you too can make incredible profits from penny shares again and again… and again.
Please hurry though, seats are limited and tickets are going fast, so click here and ensure your name is on my list.

How much you should offer for an investment property

As a start, put in an offer between 15% and 20% below the market price of the house. Then you need to sit and wait for the seller to get back to you with a response.

This will likely open up the door to negotiations with the seller. Decide how much you’ll pay as a maximum for the property. Once you hit this price with the seller, explain that this is your final offer.

If you’re not successful, it’s time to start the same process with the next house on your list.
