The Science Behind ROI
Return on investment is a tricky thing. On the one hand, you have to consider what you are paying, what the rental possibilities are like, what the market is doing-now and ten years from now. And on the other hand, what the weather is doing.
Usually, when talking about ROI, most people wouldn’t pay any attention to the weather. It’s global trends, not global warming. Unless of course, the development itself is so unique that it is backed by science, for a reason.
In the case of Kabeljauws Beach estate in Jeffreys Bay, science is precisely why you should invest. Because not only was it designed, engineered and bullet-proofed by award-winning CMAI Architects-the same people who brought us Thesen Islands in Knysna, but also because it’s the first of its kind in South Africa.
The reason being that Kabeljauws Beach took to heart the old saying of location, location, location. Situated between the edge of town and the Kabeljous river mouth, it is also situated on the beach. Not close to the beach, or a minute of stiff walking from the beach, but right on the beach.
This is where science saves the day because surely an investment that close to the sea would be subject to rising oceans or even spring tides? Surely it would. Which is why it was engineered to break the waves through the use of a buried gabion revetment. What this means is that the views are unhindered and your safety guaranteed for at least the next 100 years.
Not that you would hold on to it if investment was the goal. Consider the fact that this estate, apart from the supreme location, also boasts contemporary coastal architecture, private courtyards, a mixed-use precinct including a beach café, pool terrace as well as state-of-the-art security.
With only 43 opportunities to own either a luxury apartment, penthouse, freestanding home or a rowhouse, chances are that the reselling value alone is worth the price of admission. Not to mention the renting possibilities.
Talking about price, at this moment, Kabeljauws Beach sells from R1065000 upwards. Even when you are looking only at global trends, it is an excellent opportunity underscored by ROI.
