Kelvin Davidson: Our ‘top down’ perspective on the Government’s investor tax policy changes

It’s an understatement to suggest that the content of the Government’s housing policy announcement on 23rd March was a surprise to most. In reality, it was a major surprise to all.

Ryan Smuts: How to raise money quickly

In certain markets where properties are moving quickly, your ideal scenario would be to aim at being in a position to purchase and move at the same pace as the market, that is being ready should a good deal presents itself.

Debbie Roberts: The #1 question I get asked by coaching clients

There are a lot of questions that we get asked on a regular basis, but one of the most common ones is “What sort of property is the best investment, and where is the best place to invest?” Ok, I know that’s cheating because it’s really two questions, but let’s roll with it.
