Earn 15% to 30% on your capital

Do you want to earn between 15% and 30% per annum on your capital with a trusted partner that takes care of everything?

YDL is excited to announce that it has entered the “flipping” (buy – fix up – sell) market in Atlanta, Georgia, and is inviting investors to come along for the journey.

What is in it for you?

Excellent returns: Targeted returns are between 15% and 30% per annum.

Leveraging YDL’s extensive “flipping” experience for your own benefit. YDL has flipped over R100m worth of properties in SA over the last few years. We have substantial experience in how to do it, what to look out for when buying, how to design and implement renovations, and how to mitigate risks.

Expert knowledge of Atlanta: Our philosophy is to become niche experts as this increases your opportunities, profits, and decreases your risk. We’ve been operating in Atlanta for the last 2.5 years, and have built up an excellent knowledge of the market, including where to buy, which areas to avoid, and how to mitigate risks.

Market intelligence: It is very risky to invest in a foreign market as you don’t have local knowledge, can easily be taken for a ride by unscrupulous operators, and can’t fly there at the drop of a hat to inspect your investment. See YDL’s series on the “The seven dangers of property investment offshore”. Our knowledge of Atlanta, direct presence there, and direct buying model reduces these risks substantially.

A turnkey service: We do it all for you. You don’t have to lift a finger, apart from signing documents and doing transfers. The service includes which structures to use, the management of all legal processes, administration of the deals, financial accounting, submission of IRS returns, buying the properties, renovating and selling them.

Direct purchasing model: We are not brokers, selling someone else’s properties on to you for a commission. Rather, we do the deals ourselves, meaning that you get in with us on the “ground floor”. This means more profit for everyone.

Direct YDL presence in Atlanta: We don’t sit in South Africa, and hope that your investment will turn out well. We frequently fly to Atlanta to manage your investments, and are thus regularly “on the ground” in Atlanta, doing deals ourselves. For example, Deon has been in Atlanta for the last 10 weeks, securing deals, and building further local capacity.

Scale: We’ve secured finance for our flip deals. This means that you can do about 2.5 times the number of deals that you would otherwise have been able to do. And, this increases your returns as you need to put in less of your own funds.

Handpicked partners: We take great care in only selecting the best partners. We’ve spent years on weeding out non-performing service providers, and have excellent teams that support our flipping transactions.

Transparency: Our ethics are that we don’t hide anything from investors. When you deal with us, we have an open book relationship. You have access to the details of every aspect of the transaction.

Commercial alignment: YDL earns a percentage of the net profit. That’s it. There are no hidden fees. The benefit for you is that you know that we are “rowing in the same direction”. The higher the profit, the more you make, and the more we earn.

Risk management: We understand the risks, and mitigate them through our detailed local knowledge, years of experience with speculative deals, direct buying model, tailor-made systems, handpicked partners, and being “on the ground”.

Benefit of short-term focus: You might have concerns about the world and US economy, and might feel jittery about where to place your funds, despite the diversification and rand hedge benefits. Our flips typically take somewhere between 4 and 8 months, end to end, so it is a quick “in and out” strategy. Should the Atlanta property market weaken, one would arguably “see the corner coming” and would take appropriate measures to mitigate its effect.

Rand hedge: The rand, set for its third consecutive annual decline, has depreciated around 34% against the dollar since the start of 2011 (16% since the start of the year). This makes it the worst performing major currency over the last 3 years, according to Bloomberg. Although some are predicting that the rand’s current misery is nearing its end, most economists are in agreement that the rand will weaken against the dollar over the medium to long term. If you take a long term investment view, and assuming that the economists are right, putting your money in dollar based investments could substantially increase your wealth. If the debt ceiling is not raised, this would place pressure on the US economy, which would knock-on to the South African economy and cause rand vulnerability.
