South Africa faces investment boom

Why use a broker instead of a bank

Whilst the European property market continues to suffer from an instability that offers both potential profits and pitfalls to investors in equal measure, relatively new areas are emerging as interesting prospects in the global market.

South American countries, led by Brazil’s booming economy, are receiving a great deal of attention from international buyers, which is reflected in the strength of property purchase price increases that are currently showing the highest returns in the world.

Of course there are other ways of making money through property rather than selling at a profit and South Africa is beginning to stake a claim when it comes to exciting new markets that have particular appeal for rental market investors.

Although not in the throes of a strengthening economy overall, and thus not reporting property price increases that suggest a growing market, it is in fact the suppressed purchase costs that make the country an appealing prospect.

The potential yields in rental income streams mark South Africa out as a long term investment for many interested international buyers at the moment, as the income expected to be earned over the coming years measured against the property purchases values are looking good on paper.

The trend looks likely to continue well into 2013 and beyond as inflation rates in both the rental costs and house price growth are minimal in the reasonably weak economy, but the former are outstripping the latter, resulting in increasing gross rental yields.

If you are interested in making an investment in South Africa it is important to make sure that you make the most of favourable financial conditions when moving funds from one country to another, or look to raising funds abroad.

Enlisting the services of an experienced currency exchange specialist can make the difference between a good investment potential becoming a great business deal.
