For an investment to appreciate in value there should be a value to appreciate in the first place. This is were concepts like value addition and creation comes into play. A piece of real estate is value added through such elements like installation of water and sewer systems; paving of roads; social amenities etc. Furthermore, these elements should be installed in a way that is in line with standard practice not the half hearted approach that we witness in some places. The point therefore is a lot of special effort should be expended by developers and investors in order to create value in real estate. In Budiriro the developers then, made these special efforts and they created value in the suburb. Leveraging upon better economic times in the early 90s developers installed quality land development elements and social infrastructure. Despite the economic subsidence of the new millennium Budiriro’s town planning is still fetching good market values and is foundation for value appreciation.
