Investment Opportunities in Student Accommodation

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in purpose-built student accommodation in South Africa, yet we are still behind the curve in terms of supply versus demand compared to developed countries. Coupled with the Government’s National Development Plan of increasing tertiary student enrollments to 1.6 million by the year 2030, there will be a significant increase in the demand for student accommodation during the next decade.

As long as higher learning institutions and universities exist, there will be a need for student accommodation, making it a feasible investment opportunity while affording you the opportunity to assist in creating a better South Africa.

Bevin Thomas: Professional Property Investor

Before joining SA Property Investors Network, Bevin was a co-owner of a construction company that specialised in commercial maintenance, residential renovations and smaller developments.

“I have learnt the importance of surrounding myself with the right people and constantly being open to learning from others. When I think back to my first property purchase, I am reminded how dangerous it is not to be informed and how valuable it is to constantly be expanding your knowledge” His experience as a general contractor has given him the ability to read a property, and its potential, with the added bonus of being familiar with the costs needed for any rehabilitation work.

He now focuses full time on securing cashflow positive properties and is super passionate about property. His ultimate goal is to make sure that his wife and young daughters have a secure future.
