Making sous vide scrambled eggs is something you do only if you really do not feel like standing in front of the stove. It is really just a fancy way to serve something that is really simple to make.
Part of the reason we went out last Friday night was to discuss our rental property. I own this in partnership with a friend. Over the years we have bought and sold other properties, but we have kept one house as an investment. We discussed a new complex going up in Gordons Bay, and whether it would be a good idea to buy an apartment. The deposit needed is very small, and at present the interest rates are low. George and Elize went to see the agent on Saturday and agreed that a two bedroom, two bathroom unit would be a good buy. Dave and I then went on the Sunday and despite the price being good, I had a few concerns. Due to the great pricing, and low interest rates, I reckon many first time home owners will invest.

The expected rental income is about R7000 per month for the unit we were looking at. But if there are too many available for rent, that could decrease. We would also not be able to sell quickly for a profit as they are releasing phases quite quickly. They are on phase 3 of 44 and each phase has a small price increment. But when buying off plan, there are no transfer and bond registration costs. I fear that the market will be flooded and we will end up with an empty apartment. The buy is just not attractive enough to make the investment worthwhile. Once I vocalised my fears to everyone, we were all in agreement. This is a great opportunity, but not for us.
