Bryanston and its investment property specialists
Bryanston was once a suburb of Northern Johannesburg, but is now an affluent suburb of Sandton. Always sought-after, from the days when it was a semi-rural area, erstwhile Bryanston was preferred by residents who sought a “gentleman farmer” lifestyle, commuting to Johannesburg to work and retiring home over weekends to enjoy a leisurely lifestyle in the country.
A gracious reminder
These days, Bryanston’s former dusty, dirt roads are tarred and well maintained. Some of the earlier sprawling properties with large homes remain, while a great deal of new development has also taken place. Bryanston has the infrastructure and all the luxuries and facilities one expects of an affluent Sandton suburb, and yet it still manages to retain a gracious, leisurely air – a reminder of its former state and status.
Because Bryanston properties have remained sought-after the property values in the suburb have increased exponentially as the years have passed. Those who invested in Bryanston some time ago are sitting pretty today. Bryanston was and still is very popular as an upmarket place in which to live, as well as an area in which to invest, purely for generating income and/or a healthy profit.
When those in the know say that the purchase of one’s home is probably the biggest, most important purchase that the average person will ever make in their lifetime, they’re not wrong. Home or property acquisition is invariably significant.
This scenario speaks of the average person and one thus assumes that the person is also an average income earner, but the same holds true for many upper or affluent income earners or investors. Typically, and irrespective of earnings, people tend to live according to their incomes and/or means; the more you earn or the higher your net worth, the higher your standard of living and the more your residential property is likely to cost.
Those who earn modestly may have a savings account, while the top earners and members of the wealthiest sector are likely to have an investment portfolio, which includes at least one property – their home, and probably more properties purchased purely for long-term investment value and investment growth purposes.
Right location, time, and price
If an investment property is purchased in the right location, at the right time, and at a realistic or right price (for the time when the buying transaction takes place), it is likely to represent a sound, solid, safe, and worthwhile investment that has grown and increased substantially in value. It’s a good investment, whether the investment is one’s primary dwelling or the property investment is made purely for the investment potential and capital growth prospects.
It follows, therefore, that acquiring an investment property that will increase in value significantly over a period of time is no small matter. Property investment decisions and processes shouldn’t be taken lightly. Money and possible financial risks are involved. Property investment is distinctly different from those made via the stock market, treasury products, or less sophisticated commercial or private bank deposits.
Expertise, in-depth knowledge, experience, and a thorough understanding of and familiarity with the suburb – Bryanston, is essential. It’s also invaluable to have access to knowledge and information about Bryanston properties in general.
Specialisation and property specialists
In today’s society, where specialisation is the order of the day, it’s impossible for everyone to know everything about all sectors, so it’s important to recognise which specialists are on hand to give their knowledge, experience, and expertise.
