Michael Bauer, general manager of sectional title management company IHFM, has drawn attention to a recent TPN (Tenant Profile Network) report where, according to Stats SA, it mentions that 75% of landlords are actually micro-landlords (own one to ten properties and rent them out).  If you are this type of landlord it is important to be quite careful in selecting the type of unit you will invest in and what rental category it falls under.

Rabie Property Administrators (RPA) has acquired the management contract for the Rosmead Shopping Centre in Kenilworth bringing their portfolio under management  to more than R3,8 billion and a total GLA of just under 300 000 square metres

More and more, property managers are working hand in hand with asset managers to add value to their clients portfolios – and in some cases this role is being blurred all together - which also brings the issue of the traditional property management fee into question

The enormous number of imponderables that are about to impact property investors means that to keep the asset performing at optimum levels, negotiation and compromise are the rule right now
