  • To maintain the property in pristine condition and as such protect the investment.
  • To build an income return history for the property. 

Capital Gain

The increase in the market value of a property is governed by two major influencing factors, supply and demand and building replacement cost.  Important to note is that capital gain (increase in the market value of a property) cannot be guaranteed and is subject to fluctuations in market conditions.

Return on Investment

Investment return is measured by income against the asset’s capital cost.  An apartment achieving a net income of R10 000.00 per month covers roughly R1M of capital cost, whether paid for in cash or by way of a loan.  A measured and consistent history of rental income brings mathematics into determining the sale price for the property.  


We make your property visible on multiple  online marketing sites. This means having good site content, responding quickly to customer questions, adjusting prices based on demand, and carefully managing guests reviews. If guests have a bad experience, it affects the entire DMS portfolio.
