Buy, Build and Monetise Your Property Back Home!
Hey there, are you coming back home for Christmas?
Are you planning to look at different property opportunities when you come home?
Are you hoping that by being on the ground and looking at various options yourself, you’ll avoid being scammed?
Understanding the Property Landscape
Home visits are always a good time to find a property that you can buy. But once you find that ideal plot or property, you may still have question marks about the process.
What happens after you agree payment terms?
Who’s going to run with things when you get back on the plane?
Will the seller stick to the terms you’ve agreed to?
And how will you fit all this in AND have time for family and friends this festive season? We have an exciting solution for you!
How would you like to view lots of properties AND have all your property questions answered in just THREE DAYS, leaving you more than enough time to enjoy the rest of the festive season with family and friends?
Our first ever in person event!
We’re thrilled to be hosting our first ever in person event – Buy, Build and Monetise Your Property Back Home!
Our three day event combines workshops, site visits to available properties and excursions to bring you a “first of its kind” immersive property experience.
You can expect to come away with tools, tips and advice on how to maximise your investment when it comes to buying, building and leasing out property back home.
There’ll be industry experts available to share their knowledge with you as well as a mortgage lender to provide information on how to access loans in Zambia.
You’ll take part in site visits where you’ll get to see actual properties for sale. You’ll meet with the vendors and learn more about their properties while being on the ground.
But that’s not all! This is not a packed programme that’ll leave you exhausted.
There’ll be a day of fun, filled with excursions where you have the choice of enjoying a number of activities at one of Lusaka’s premier game lodges.

Site Visits of Properties for Sale
This won’t be a workshop where you’ll be held hostage in a stuffy meeting room. That’s not the purpose of your home visit!
You’re coming here to look at what’s available on the ground and make your own mind up about what bests suit you.
Our programme will combine workshops with the following sites:
