Africans investing in Africa

While the number of international buyers in residential property in South Africa remains relatively low, at somewhere in the region of three percent nationally, investors from elsewhere on the continent – including returning expats - retain their appetite for the acquisition of South African real estate for a variety of reasons.

A decade after the global financial crisis, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Investment Risk Forum (IRF) - which comprises more than 40 of the world’s most influential real estate investors - has found that diminishing returns are driving real estate investment diversification.

JSE-listed diversified Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) Redefine Properties (JSE: RDF) continues to build an exceptionally diversified and quality property platform after acquiring another attractive development site for student accommodation in Australia.

The recent protests at universities and colleges across SA have caused many to question the wisdom of investing in student accommodation - but it still remains a highly attractive option provided you buy the right kind of property in the right location, says Bill Rawson, chairman of the Rawson Property Group.
