Not Everyone That Retire Is Old.

Updated: Aug 28, 2022

Retire In Midstream Estate

Some people decide to retire early to enjoy their life without the restraints of a 9-to-5 job. 1% of people are rich, and to put that into perspective, 1 out of 100 people. With 15 million people in Gauteng, that leaves us with 150 000 wealthy people. I bet most of them are staying in the lifestyle estates in Gauteng.

Midstream is such an estate with proximity close to Centurion. Everybody believes it is part of Centurion, but actually, it is part of Johannesburg.

It is the ideal spot for people of all ages who decide to retire because it caters to all ages.

In my other posts, I mentioned that not everybody wants to move to the coast. People want to stay in a city, and Midstream because of its position is close to Johannesburg, Pretoria Oliver Tambo airport. Midstream Estate is the perfect thought-out estate complex.

Give up Country Living

Estates offer a lifestyle, and I know of people who gave up country living to move to an estate inside a city. You can live in a property in Midstream, which would be like living in the countryside. One could imagine a farmer who sells his farm to retire, moves to a city and retires at Midstream. Because of the facilities, the lifestyle and the security. Everybody would have thought that if people become successful, they would move to the countryside, but in South Africa, small towns all have financial problems except for the Western Cape and a couple of exceptions.

Questions & Answers

Who is your property investment coach?

Is it reasonable to see an investment advisor before or after purchasing the property?

If you are retiring, you need to look at your investment plan first to see if you have enough money to afford your lifestyle in retirement. If you are wealthy and buy into the estate because you can afford it, you may want to meet with an investment advisor to assist you with tax planning and ensure you are getting the best deal regarding return on your investment.

Which of the Midstream estates is the best one?

I do not know. Once you have done all of the above, get the estate agents to take you inside and start to look at properties. They are your eyes and ears but remember they are salespeople and need to make a sale. If you go in unprepared, you may buy the wrong property for too high a price.

I am considering moving to South Africa. Is Midstream a good place to live?

Immigrating to South Africa may be a good idea if you want to take advantage of the exchange rate and good returns on investment. Your Pounds, Euros or Dollars will take you far.
