When Cape Town investment property calls, call Fine & Country South Africa
“Investment” is a widely used word and concept throughout the developed world; it’s nothing new in South Africa either. One invests a currency that you or others value for the purpose of receiving a reward or higher value for the particular item or investment vehicle in question when one decides to relieve oneself of it at a later stage. Your currency is usually monetary, although it might be your time, attention, expertise, or other resources.
Don’t take a chance or gamble
At first glance, making an investment seems simple. However, nothing could be further from the truth, unless Lady Luck favours you. Nonetheless, one should never gamble with investments, even if you’re exceptionally well heeled. You may find yourself on the other side of the fortune coin if you make a sizeable but unwise investment, to be quite blunt about the subject.
Specialised, niche markets
Life, lifestyles, and the world of wealth and money have become very sophisticated. Along with increasing sophistication in the marketplace, one typically also encounters more niche markets and areas of specialisation. Remember, whatever sells well in one city may not be as sought after in another geographical area. It’s another interesting aspect of the marketplace.
This holds true for the property sector, and making money or accruing profits from it, especially in a highly diverse, multi-cultural city like Cape Town, where so many South Africans and people from overseas countries would love to have a home.
Location, location, and location holds as true as ever, but keep in mind that it’s essential that you have in-depth knowledge about the properties in the area or city in which you’d like to acquire a fixed asset. The highly trained, professional estate agents who represent Fine & Country South Africa in affluent sectors, of which Cape Town has an abundance, are on hand to assist and guide you, armed with detailed, extensive information about all the relevant Cape suburbs and developments.
In South Africa, property has usually proved to be a sound investment vehicle, but this does not apply to any and all properties. The property in which one intends investing should be thoroughly investigated and researched, long before even looking at the dotted line, never mind signing on it to conclude the deal.
Your investment decision should be one that is informed, despite the fact that you may not be an experienced property investor, since this field is another specialised aspect of a balanced investment portfolio. The same guidelines and rules apply to property purchases that are purely for investment purposes, as well as the investment in a principal or holiday home.
Call on Fine & Country South Africa
Because Cape Town, known as “the Mother City” in South Africa, is the oldest European settlement in this country, there are numerous historical and heritage buildings. Some have become museums; others are official heritage sites or homes with priceless historical value and facades which may not be altered.
Cape Town itself has also experienced tremendous growth, because it is a location in which so many aspire to live, work, and play. New developments abound, but they’re not all equal. Price is indicative of a Cape property’s value, but it is by no means the only criterion of investment values or potential for escalation in value.
This is when you need to call on a Fine & Country South Africa agent, whose expertise is focused on Cape Town property sales, simultaneously maximising the prospective investment value to be potentially gained from your property purchase.
Once engaged, a dedicated Fine & Country Cape Town specialist will operate as your investment property partner throughout the entire process, from acquiring your specifications and requirements, to a successful conclusion. Call on Fine & Country South Africa’s expertise.
