Kelvin Grove Property Breakfast
With interest in buy-to-let residential properties stimulated by the lower prices now available and the lower interest rates, and with investors increasingly spreading their portfolios to take advantage of bargain buys, Rawson Auctions, headed up by Tanya Jovanovski and Jason Lee, are arranging a breakfast at 7:45am on Wednesday 26th May at Kelvin Grove – specifically tailored to introduce those not familiar with auction buying and property investment to understand the opportunities in this sector.

The speakers will be

Jason Lee, author of “Making money out of property in South Africa (Zebra Press -2004)” and “Fast forward your retirement through property (Zebra Press - 2009)”; and
Bill Rawson, Chairman of Rawson Properties, who has had 39 years in property and owns a large portfolio himself.

Lee will talk on “Property, the cornerstone of wealth creation” and Rawson on “Working property numbers to achieve growth and good returns”.

Smith Tabata Buchanan Boyes and Rob Lawrence, CEO of Rawson Finance will also be on the discussion panel.

The talks and discussions will be followed by an auction of ten carefully selected properties, all in the Rondebosch and “Academic Belt” (i.e. within easy travelling distance of UCT and therefore suited to students). All properties, said Jovanovski, will be priced from R500 000 and offer attractive rental yields and capital growth prospects.

“Demand in the UCT ‘academic belt’ continues to outstrip supply, making all of the properties on offer ‘savvy’ investments. This is a rare opportunity for private investors, investment clubs and residential property funds to grow their portfolios with quality stock at realistic prices,” said Jovanovski.

Lee stressed that one of Rawson’s top salesmen, John Birkett, who specialises in this type of property, had been called in to advise them on what to select and to help line up a really good portfolio.
