The value of your property is based on the quality and stability of your income stream. Finding the right quality and mix of tenants is therefore paramount. Relationships are built over time and there is no substitute for experience. SAFLAND offers an unrivalled 100 years combined retail tenant experience in African markets with established relationships with all the leading shop brands.

Research is the key to any successful venture. Especially when developing land, you need to know your market – their habits, rituals, shopping patterns, LSM groups, religion, age and anything else that can help you predict a tenant mix that suits the needs of their customers in the area.
Through our extensive database, knowledge of new retailers and trends, good relations, understanding of national, international as well as the local population, we are able to channel it all into proftable functionality and a customer base resulting in high trading volumes as well as a good return on investment.
