Who am I?
I'm Walter Mogane from Lombardy East, South Africa. I am passionate about providing affordable accommodation for tenants and making their place of stay beautiful. I'm also a qualified accountant. A number cruncher some say.
What is this idea that I have?
I used to work very far from home just to get a salary and pay my bills. I have used all the modes of transport available at that time to go to work and to school: a taxi, a train and a bus. Sometimes I used to wake up as early as 4 am to be at work at 8 am to commute daily to work. And then I bought a house to be closer to work, about only 20 minutes from work actually. So I came to realize how important it is to be near work, malls, clinics and have easy access to public transport.
I wanted to help other people who were staying from their school or place of work from that point onwards. So I decided to go into property ever since.
Why I need your help.

At what stage am I?
I have obtained a quotation from a contractor who is ready to build the bathroom and turn the cottage into an ensuite bathroom. The tenant will no longer have to outside to use a toilet and share the shower with the tenants in the house. The room, which was previously used as a laundry room, has been earmarked as the room to the bathroom. The washing machine that is currently residing there will be moved out.

The current taps and pipes will be used as a starting point to build that bathroom.
Why support this project?
I have previous experience in buying property. I have 4 properties already that I have bought in the past 9 years. I have been having a 100% occupancy rate in all those properties. I have been dealing with tenants since my very first property and know what tenants need and want. I have also done some renovations in some of these previous renovations to improve the quality of stay for my previous tenants.
I have also recently bought a property that I aim to be a bed and breakfast. For more information, please visit lehae.huntingme.co.za.
