February saw many milestones being reached at Alphen Glen. Significantly we saw the final concrete roof slab pour for the 5th floor Penthouses define the building’s outline in its entirety. Truly marking this architectural structure in its new environment.

The removal of the supports and hoarding revealed the Penthouses undisputed outlook over the Constantia Wine region and surrounding forested canopy.

The Risk (or lack thereof) of Investing in Property

by REI Editorial | Feb 2022

I truly believe investing in property is one of the safest investments you can make. And I’ll tell you why:

Property is tangible – It is something you can feel, touch and see.

It is a basic human need – Everyone needs a roof over their head, which means an entry-level property will always be in demand.

The South African population and the population’s wealth is also growing, and from a supply side, land is limited, and they are not making any more of it. From a fundamental economic perspective, this means property prices will continue to increase.

Tip: Even though property is a low-risk investment, it is important to have a reserve fund, especially when you finance and refinance properties. You need to have a certain percentage of the property value in cash in case something goes wrong.
