Frank Salt Real Estate in South Africa
The South Africa road show has become a yearly event on the Frank Salt Real Estate calendar, where the company together with its South African representative, organize a series of free information seminars for South African nationals to actively promote Malta, the lifestyle and residency programs.
After actively promoting these seminars in the leading South African press and media channels, the team recently travelled to Cape Town and Johannesburg where a series of informative presentations and private meetings were held to highlight the advantages Malta has to offer. These seminars offer the people who attended an insight to various residency programs including the popular Global Residence Program for non-EU nationals and the Malta Citizenship Investment, together with financial incentives, property and investments, and particularly target South African nationals who are looking to invest or relocate overseas and
perhaps consider Malta. “The seminars were very well attended by people who are either looking for an investment or who are looking to relocate, due to the unstable political situation and high rate of criminality in their country”, said
Paul Bondin senior sales consultant at the Cospicua branch. “Malta is a favourite destination among South African nationals due to the fact that English is widely spoken, that it is easily accessible due to daily flight connections and a healthy property
market,” Mr Bondin continued.
“This year we spoke to a lot of clients who are seriously considering investing in property in Malta,” added Grahame Salt, Director for Frank Salt Real Estate. “This is the 12th year that
we have visited South Africa and we have built up a very good network over the years. The interest is always very encouraging. This kind of investment by overseas buyers is very important for the local real estate market. Our South African clients are often very established business people and there is a lot they can contribute to locally,” Mr Salt said. “It is very important of course that we play our cards right and look after these clients to ensure that their investment experience is a positive one, not just from the property point of view, but also from a legal and banking perspective.”
Frank Salt Real Estate has the right set up and infrastructure dedicated to service foreign clients looking to purchase or rent a property, or relocate to Malta. In fact, the company has also recently participated in property shows in Stockholm and Birmingham, with very good interest and attendance at both exhibitions.
