Unlocking Property Wealth: Diverse Ways to Invest in Property

Property investment has long been a cornerstone of wealth creation, offering the potential for both passive income through rental yields and capital appreciation over time. However, traditional property investment can be daunting, requiring significant capital, hands-on management, and illiquid markets.  

That's where we come in, on EasyEquities there are multiple ways for investors to gain exposure to the property market.
Whether you're a seasoned investor or just dipping your toes into the world of property, here’s a comprehensive guide to leveraging your EasyEquities account for property investment. 🏘️ 🏠 🏡 🏢 🏬 🏗️ 

EasyProperties: Fractional Ownership Made Easy

EasyProperties revolutionizes property investment by enabling fractional ownership, allowing you to invest in a portion of a carefully selected property, starting with as little as R1. This eliminates the need for hefty down payments and opens doors to a diverse range of beautiful properties across South Africa.

With EasyProperties, you can seamlessly browse through handpicked properties, participate in initial public offerings (IPOs) for new listings, or buy shares on the secondary auction market held quarterly. As an investor, you'll earn rental income distributed in the form of dividends, proportional to your shareholding, on a quarterly basis. Additionally, you can anticipate potential capital gains at the conclusion of the investment term. EasyProperties simplifies the investment process, making it accessible to investors of all income levels and net worth.

REITs: Real Estate Investment Trusts

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are companies that own and operate income-producing real estate assets, such as apartments, office buildings, and shopping malls. REITs also offer investors exposure to real estate without the hassle of direct property management. REITs are exchange listed instruments, therefore you can buy and sell them as you would shares.

On EasyEquities you will find dozens of REITs available for investment, listed on both local and international exchanges, therefore available in your ZAR and international wallets.

Some cool features of REITs

  • REITs must pay at least 75% of their taxable earnings for distribution to investors as dividends.
  • They earn their income from property leases, which means that they usually have a relatively stable income stream, which is adjusted upwards annually to keep pace with inflation.
  • Earn their income from commercial properties with long lease periods, which means that they usually have a relatively stable income stream, which is adjusted upwards annually to keep pace with inflation.
  • Are required to have a committee to monitor risk.

Property Unit Trusts: Diversified Property Exposure

Property unit trust funds focus on investing in listed property companies responsible for developing and managing real estate. Typically, these funds offer diversification across various sectors and geographical locations.

Property unit trusts pool funds from multiple investors to purchase a diversified portfolio of real estate assets. This approach offers investors exposure to a variety of properties, reducing the risk associated with individual investments.

EasyEquities offers a wide selection of property unit trusts from well known investment managers. These Unit Trusts provide investors with access to a diverse range of real estate assets, including commercial, residential, and industrial properties. As they are Unit Trusts, you can easily add them to your TFSA. Check out https://wealth.easyequities.co.za/unittrustscompare for our compare tool.

Property ETFs: Property (Exchange-Traded Funds)

Property Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) are investment funds traded on stock exchanges that hold a collection of real estate assets. They provide diversification across various property sectors and geographic locations. Through EasyEquities, investors can access property ETFs, benefiting from the liquidity and ease of trading associated with ETFs as ETFs can be traded just like regular shares.
ETFs can also be added to your TFSA, check out https://compare.easyequities.co.za/ for our ETF compare tool.
