Porto-Novo (Portuguese: “New Port”, Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈpoɾtu ˈnovu], French pronunciation: ​[pɔʁtɔnɔvo]; Yoruba: Àjàṣẹ́, Fon: Xɔ̀gbónù), also known as Hogbonu and Ajashe, is the capital of Benin. The commune covers an area of 110 square kilometres (42 sq mi) and as of 2002 had a population of 223,552 people.

Situated on an inlet of the Gulf of Guinea, in the southeastern portion of the country, the city was originally developed as a port for the transatlantic slave trade led by the Portuguese Empire. It is Benin’s second-largest city, and although it is the official capital, where the national legislature sits, the larger city of Cotonou is the seat of government, where most of the government buildings are situated and government departments operate.

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

Flipping Investment Property in Porto-Novo

Flipping property in Porto-Novo

The Flipping Strategy in Porto-Novo


Investment property flipping in Porto-Novo 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 Porto-Novo real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Porto-Novo real estate.


What is distressed Porto-Novo property:


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

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


Calculate profit that you make from Porto-Novo investment property flipping:


Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Porto-Novo 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 Porto-Novo use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Porto-Novo projects.


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