Property investment analysis and sourcing
360 Degrees specializes in the sourcing of commercial properties for a variety of corporate clients, real estate developers and commercial property funds.
Graeme Smith founded 360 Degrees in 2007 with a view to assisting property developers source development sites at a time when commercial property development was booming in Johannesburg and developers needed assistance with the sourcing and assessing suitable sites quickly. The service included site sourcing, market rental surveys and risk assessment/due diligence (see below an incomplete list of the risks associated with developing vacant land)
Since its inception 360 has expanded its sourcing service to include the sourcing of built commercial spaces (industrial and offices) for either corporate tenants or commercial property investors.
360 has access to cadastral maps (erf numbers, farm numbers, etc) for the whole of South Africa and uses this data to source owners of desirable properties for clients.
Of particular relevance to sourcing development sites is the knowledge 360 has developed with respect to the process of beneficiating land from raw agricultural zoning to zoned, serviced and final proclamation in the government gazette of the established township and serviced stands.
