KSPP > Investment advice > Rental returns

Renting your property for the medium to long term - while focusing also on strong capital growth - is one of the easiest and surest ways to make money in the real estate business. With a well-managed rental program, your return can be substantial and with limited costs in the long run. Our advice is that you seek a balance between growth and income and view your investment as medium to long term and be prepared to ride out the cycles. Rental incomes always need to be high enough to help with your holding costs such as loan repayments, insurance and maintenance costs.

Holding an investment property can always be challenging but remember that capital growth builds your equity much faster than loan re-payments and rental income.

Also, in the quest to get the best rental returns and to minimize the void periods between tenants, the key to being successful is understanding your potential ideal tenant and tailor your property to attract that market.

One of the great benefits of working within our group is that, in most cases, for a full 2 years upon completion of your property, KSPP will completely create and manage your portfolio, putting the marketing strategy in place and managing the estate in all aspects. This way, at the end of the 2-year period, your investment property will have benefited from advertising, should be in top condition and will have insured referrals that will sustain your income.

Throughout this period, we will update you every financial quarter regarding the progress made on the rental income of your property. Provided with this data, you can then make an informed decision with regards to retaining the property or selling it when it is time to start managing your mortgage payments.
