Anyone can invest in real estate

When we talk about property investments, the first thing we think of is large amounts of money. But that is not the case. Anyone can invest in real estate. It all depends on how much you want to invest and for how long.

At The High Option, we make it possible for you to invest as little as R10 000 in our portfolio. Becoming a shareholder in one or more of our projects does not require you to be a millionaire.

But what are the risks?

There are two main risks you need to be aware of.

The transaction might be cancelled.

When you secure a share, your funds will be kept in trust by our attorneys until such time as the total number of shares have been taken up. This is normally time-barred. Should the closing date be reached with insufficient take-up, you will be refunded together with interest on your invested capital.

The development might be aborted.

It is unlikely, but reasonably possible that the development plan on the property is aborted for some reason. In this case, the property would be retained for 5 years and sold at a higher price. This may however not materialise and the property could be disposed of at a loss. However, the decision to dispose of a property is made by the majority shareholders.
