“Real Estate Investment in 2022”

Now’s the Time

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, interest rates, particularly in South Africa, have dropped significantly. Although this may cause some concern at first glance, it unlocks several benefits for real estate investors.

Here are some trends in real estate investment right now.

1. House-flipping

Investing in real estate at a lower interest rate, renovating and selling for a profit, known as “house flipping”, has become a real trend in today’s financial climate. And this could be a great way to start your real estate investment journey.

2. Industrial Real Estate

Due to the pandemic, a greater need for storage space and warehousing has arisen, meaning industrial properties are in high demand. The current lower interest rates grant potential investors the opportunity to get into the game early, as predictions point towards a further surge in this market in the near future.

3. Sustainability Sells

With load shedding adding to South Africans’ burdens, sustainability has become a hot topic in the real estate market. Property owners and investors are looking into going off the grid, or at least for a hybrid solution.

So, whether this means investing in solar panels before you sell or looking out for properties already equipped in this area before you buy, it remains a key factor to consider when investing in real estate.

4. Co-Owning

As more South Africans realise the benefits of buying over renting, they are coming together to buy property for investment and accommodation purposes.
