Some Frequently asked Questions

Why is Johannesburg CBD a good investment area?

The inner-city of Johannesburg property market boomed since the introduction of the Gautrain and BRT-program in 2010 as huge infrastructure investment flowed into the area from government as well as the private sector. This enabled investors to invest in cash flow positive full-title as well as sectional title property investments as the area experienced a property renaissance with national retailers, banks, restaurants, fast food outlets making their mark in the area.

Not only is there a huge low cost housing demand, but the existing infrastructure and services  like water, electricity and sewerage makes these properties even more attractive. If you buy selectively in the right areas and amenities, one can experience great capital appreciation, but the real attraction is the gross annual return on investments of close to 35%p.a.There are great tax incentives should the investments take place in the UDZ-zone as set out by government.

No, not necessarily. Mamela strive to do all transactions with the highest integrity.You are welcome to fill in an offer to purchase based on the information provided on the website listings. Our offer to purchase does protect the purchaser to enter into a 5 day due-diligence period, to visit the property, inspect the management of the block and relevant information, should you want to. If the purchaser is not be completely satisfied with the property, the purchaser will be most welcome to cancel the transaction within this due-diligence period with no charge at all to the purchaser.

What happens if more than one purchaser makes an offer on the same listing?

As soon as we receives workable offers on the properties as advertised, we start to make appointments to meet the seller to submit the offers.

It is advisable to get your offer accepted and to do a due diligence on a property within the 5 day cool off period. If you are going to wait until you viewed the property, it might be too late. Of course investors are more that welcome to phone the office on guidance what properties are still available on the market.
