WINNING & RETURNING RICH REAL ESTATE CLIENTS – SECURITY SYSTEMS TO CONSIDER

The rich demand security for their valuable assets.
Burglar in action

















Just one wealth client can be good enough to provide business that constitute a greater percentage of your income. This may mean repeat business that can support your enterprise for years because these individuals have the money that does so. It can also mean lucrative capital profits for sellers or large commissions to estate agents when they purchase high value real estate in affluent locations like Borrowdale in Harare. Some are tenants who have the capacity to pay monthly rent of at least US$1 000.00 exclusive of City Council rates without fail. This rent will mean a handsome commission of US$150.00 per month for property managers that will also come without fail. But these people will not just give you this great business for nothing because they have their own special needs that must be met by you and a sane real estate player will do everything reasonable to win or return this valuable class. One need that virtually all of them want to be met by the property is security. This makes sense because these individuals have very valuable assets like jewellery, sports cars and merchandise about whose security they lose sleep. So if your property has security amongst its features then I guess you would have acquired for yourself a license to print money for a while.
