Bujumbura (French pronunciation: ​[buʒumbuʁa]; Rwanda-Rundi pronunciation: [buʒuᵐbuɾa]), formerly Usumbura, is the economic capital, largest city and main port of Burundi. It ships most of the country’s chief export, coffee, as well as cotton and tin ore. Bujumbura was formerly the country’s normal capital. In late December 2018, Burundian president Pierre Nkurunziza announced that he would follow through on a 2007 promise to return Gitega its former political capital status, with Bujumbura remaining as economical capital and center of commerce. A vote in the Parliament of Burundi made the change official on 16 January 2019, with all branches of government expected to move to Gitega within three years.

The financial stability of Bujumbura has translated into a real estate market that rewards forward planning and a willingness to look beyond areas of traditional affluence.

The Flipping Strategy in Bujumbura

 

Investment property flipping in Bujumbura is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Bujumbura real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Bujumbura real estate.

 

What is distressed Bujumbura property:

 

  • Bujumbura property in need of renovation
  • Bujumbura real estate with a change of purpose and use
  • Oversold Bujumbura property
  • Bank repossessions in Bujumbura

Put simply, long term investors in Bujumbura purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.

 

Calculate profit that you make from Bujumbura investment property flipping:

 

Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Bujumbura property purchase price: $220,000

Renovation costs: $20,000

Other costs: $25,000

Property sale price: $400,000

Profit: $135,000

 

Experienced property developers in Bujumbura use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Bujumbura projects.

 

The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Bujumbura property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
