MY PASSION, YOUR WILDEST DREAM !

Usually people’s best knowledge of real estate is only of a certain part of it not the whole picture. They may know the estate agent who sale their dream house but not the mortgage financier who can provide the money which will enable the dream house to come true. Yet knowing this information comprehensively is critical because these are the avenues that enables a human being in the modern era to meet his or her basic need for shelter. If you where a citizen during the stone age era you could make do with simply hewing a cave because back then there was no need of a property developer, estate agent, bank or a lawyer.  But this is the twenty first century we live in  different days. Today knowledge is power and always remember that for every gap that exists in your knowledge there is the notorious con man lurking in shadows and ready to utilize such loopholes by defrauding unsuspecting property investors thousands of hard earned cash. To this end I have designed a blog where all professionals who have a role to play in property, you know professionals like real estate agents, property developers, construction companies, mortgage financiers, conveyancors, estate  agents,  to mention only a few can converge to give comprehensive information to others as they themselves in the process get exposure to their valuable client. A win win kind of a scenario. Isn’t it ?

STREET VENDORS A PROBLEM THAT IS A REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITY

As the economy shrink the Harare CBD is one of the few remaining areas where advantages can combine in order to make an enterprise viable . From the phrase CBD – central business district – one quickly notice centrality which is a concept involved in the attraction of huge human traffic as people from all parts of the capital , the country and the world over can easily access the center. Exposure to huge numbers of people in a short space of time is an advantage of diamond status because it makes any one selling almost anything to earn some sort of an encouraging revenue. Here is how. If one is selling say second hand clothes a small percentage of the human traffic he is exposed to may buy but a small percentage of a huge number is not negligible. If in the CBD a vendor located at a particular spot is exposed to 1 000 people per day and a meagre  5% of these buys then that will mean 50 people buying per day. This will be great daily sales for the vendor! Therefore, this is the reason why confiscation of merchandise by the authorities for selling in undesignated places is a cost vendors consider as worthy and after a blitz they are still encouraged to return to their spots.

AS ECONOMY STAGGERS ZIMBABWEANS SEEK GOD WITH ALL THEY HAVE.

As the economy staggers Zimbabweans seek God with all they have.  Whether or not this is genuine  or despair citizens are increasingly becoming christians as long suffering Zimbabweans seek a Higher Power.  The face of the urban landscape is changing as believers construct large places of worship worth thousands of dollars despite the economic downturn that has made more than 80% unemployed. However, recent press reports also show that con men posing as prophets anointed by God are also mushrooming in order to take advantage of the lucrative boom.

GARDEN FLAT FOR RENT ! A MILLION DOLLAR TIP ON HOW TO FIND A DREAM PROPERTY FOR RENT!

I secured a tenant for the month of September 2017 to occupy  a 2 bedroomed garden flat (pictured) designed as an open plan through which the dining and kitchen are not separated by any walls. By removing these walls of partition the designer makes a psychological statement also that can resonate well especially with young couples because walls of partition can be taken as symbolism that points to other things that are true in family life.  For example for young couples the design can be deeply inspirational since oneness of two is considered as the secret code of a happy marriage. So the impact of this design on the hearts of prospective tenants was profound and the fact that it was only 7 km from the CBD amplified it. Just imagine Iam still receiving enquiries from interested people despite the fact that it was already occupied by the 6th of September. This experience made me to think about what I would say if someone would ask me as a property consultant for a good tip that will be helpful in searching for a property to rent. This article therefore, gives this million dollar tip that I believe is worth while. Here it is;

CHEEKY LANDLORD USES " POISONOUS SNAKES " AS SECURITY GUARDS FOR HIS HOUSE !

I was surprised to see a warning sign saying " This property is protected by poisonous snakes at night" on the gate of a particular property in a low density suburb of Harare. A human being is a talented creature cable of harnessing nature to suit his needs. I have read of an army in Europe that was training eagles to help it to intercept drones flying unlawfully but I don’t know if  the same can be done with poisonous snakes in order to use them as security guards on one’s house. The possibility of having poisonous snakes as security guards is therefore, speculation but the need for security especially in low density areas is fact.

My friend woke up one mid night to find out that his bed was surrounded by masked man armed with stones and iron bars. They harassed him and demanded money and he gave them all he had to save his life. Within the three days that followed he had relocated to another suburb where it was safer. High crime rates can also affect market performance of property in a particular location. It is therefore, a selling point or a form of value addition to install a security system onto immovable property. If your security system can be in the form of poisonous snakes the better as long as they do not poison the people they are meant to protect.

SELLER - " WHAT? FORGET IT I WILL NEVER SHOW YOU TITLE DEEDS!"

You should always be seeing beyond the scare tactics and drama a prospective seller of immovable property may deploy when you ask to be shown title deeds. You should see you vision of owning great investment and that that vision will never come true if the property being sold to you isnt legitimate. And one of the only ways to verify this legitimacy is through being shown title deeds by the bona fide property owner.

So when you hear a seller beginning to make statements like, " What do you need title deeds for ? Don't you know they are confidential documents ?" its probably the time to look for another property because the time you take quarreling with this guy who doesn't want to show you title deeds is the time you are also letting three, four or five opportunities pass you by.
