Martprop buys more in Gauteng

Listed property unit trust Martprop Fund said on Tuesday it had acquired both an office and an industrial property in Gauteng for a total outlay of R65,5m. 

Strong property fundamentals were continuing to boost retention of tenants with expiring leases in Martprop’s R2,6 billion portfolio, managing director Roger Perkin said today. “The firm demand for quality, well located assets has pegged vacancies in the portfolio at 1,5%,“ he said. “It is also underpinning retention of expiring leases at above 80%. “

Old Mutual Property Group, which owns 32% of listed property unit trust Martprop and also manages the fund, aimed to substantially increase the size of the fund over the next three years, said Martprop MD Roger Perkin.

The listed property sector is continuing to perform strongly, with the total return for the year at 16,9%, or an annualised 81%, at mid-March.
