Newbie from Cape Town, South Africa

My name is Jacques Hamman from Cape Town, South Africa. I'm 34 years old and new to real estate investing. I joined Bigger Pockets because I'm interested in real estate wholesaling. I've learnt about wholesaling in the US but I'm unsure how to go about it South Africa. Was hoping to learn from experienced wholesalers here in SA about the details of going about it. Thanks for welcoming me to the community.

Hi Jacques

Welcome to BP.

I am also a newbie in CT. I can't advise on wholesaling but suggest maybe come along to the next SA Property Investing Network (SAPIN) event. I've met some helpful contacts there.


Welcome, I happen to have some family in/from South Africa, I heard interest rates are pretty high there, plus I hear about people losing property etc...

Maybe I'll visit Namibia next year, see if there are some opportunities, my dad used to be some time in Windhoek when he was a bit "gatvol" of Cape Town :)
