Meyer de Waal, the convenor of the HOME OWNERSHIP EDUCATION TEAM has put together an informative set of workshops for home owners in South Africa.

The first workshop is set to take place in Cape Town in April this year. According to Meyer de Waal, even those that are already in the property market will be inspired by the talks by Neale Petersen and Vangile Makwakwa.

“They will teach you how to leverage your money successfully using bank funding, and tenants to help pay off your bond,” says de Waal.

The speakers at the workshops include a mix of “big stars” in the property development game including:
