MyProperty Namibia: We saw that you use Facebook & Instagram a lot to promote properties online. How well has this been working for you?
Kwenani: I, personally use Facebook and Instagram, because it is an easy and cost-effective way to reach the broader Namibian audience. Both Facebook and Instagram have done wonders for my property business, even though I would still use newspapers adverts too.
MyProperty Namibia: Do you think young working adults are looking to buy property earlier in life or would they rather rent?
Kwenani: I find that young working- and married adults prefer to buy properties, while single one prefer to rent especially in a safe and secure complex.
MyProperty Namibia: How would you encourage young working adults to go about when they want to buy their first property?
Kwenani: They should maintain a good record for 6 months, Request for a pre– approval, which will determine how they will be able to buy, and in which location is within their price range.
Paying a deposit will help to reduce the monthly instalment on their mortgage.
First time buyers are advised to purchase a cheaper property, which will allow them to build their wealth step by step by acquiring more properties. Properties are the best investment on earth.
MyProperty Namibia: What do think the future holds for the property market in Namibia?
Kwenani: The future of properties in Namibia looks very bright, even though Windhoek property market has been under pressure from last year which resulted in properties selling below market value.
