Why should anyone buy a house for 100 Million Rands? Well, maybe because he has 200 Million Rands! A house is not just a place to return to at night; a house is an inheritance for your children. A house is an enduring legacy- an investment for tomorrow. Many people also buy houses to protect their capital because real estate is a business that protects the businessman. A country’s economy can shake, or even collapse completely, but rarely has a house bought for a million dollars ever sold for a hundred thousand dollars. The stock market can crash, a bank can go under, gold can get stolen, but a house is a house and stays valuable- unless there is a war or a natural disaster.
If you live in a country that has a good political climate and a positive weather history, there is no reason to leave your money in a bank where the banksters will pinch it with bank charges, the government will attack it with taxes, and the exchange rate will evaporate it due to idiotic economic policies by the people at the helm. Why not buy yourself a house to be proud of and so literally get to live your net worth.
