What you need to know:

  • During the financial cycle, capital flows affect prices, while the physical cycle (of demand and supply) determines vacancy, which then drive rents and values.
  • Vannesa Wanjiru, a real estate agent, says that the period between June and September is the best time for an investor to put up his property for sale, because it represents the period when property moves fastest.
  • Some real estate experts say that as much as it might seem strange, the month of December presents investors looking to sell their properties with the best opportunity to capture the attention of prospective buyers.

Everyone gets into property investment with varied reasons and for an investor, it is to make as much money as possible, in the shortest period.
