Rentvestment is generally taking place in bigger urban centres and especially in Cape Town and Johannesburg, where these investors will often rent a high-end property in an upmarket area or estate to live in, and then buy up flats and townhouses in less expensive areas where rental demand is high and the achievable rentals will almost cover their bond repayments and other monthly costs such as levies as well as rates and taxes.
In Hoedspruit we are seeing rentvestors who need to live in the city for work reasons choosing to rent smaller, convenient apartments there and buy bigger properties here where they go for weekends or holidays and may eventually live permanently.
Another trend is to check out niche markets like student accommodation, or storage units, or even Airbnb units.
It is enabling increasing numbers of resourceful South Africans to have the best of both worlds, by living where they choose while investing for their financial future elsewhere, and is expected to play an increasingly important role in the market, especially among first-time buyers.
