March is always a speculative time in real estate, both during the run up to the much-anticipated Budget Speech and in the weeks that follow, as experts unpack budget changes and their implications for the South African property market. Our March edition of the Real Estate Investor Magazine provides some additional insights, which you can dip into on pages 3, 62 and 64.
We touch base with Wikus Lategan, our Master Investor for March and the newly appointed CEO of Calgro M3, to track his beginnings as a part time employee at a stock broking firm, SG Frankel Pollak, to the success he is today.
In this edition, you will also be able to access the second instalment of our 8-Step education series for first-time homebuyers and property investors. Turn to page 20 to find out how to get your financial ducks in a row for the property investment journey ahead.
Browse through the mag to find out more about the current movers and shakers in real estate tech (p 10‒13), how you can enter our Real Estate Investor of the Year Award (p 18) and what’s going on in the United Kingdom, U.S. and Mauritius property markets (p 42‒55).
