There is nothing new about the fact that Century Property Developments have been celebrated as South Africa’s leading developer of upmarket, secure lifestyle estates. Until recently, our primary focus has been the selling of residential land and a select few upmarket units. In recent months, a major shift in our core focus saw the launch of numerous projects on a rental-only basis. Here Century acted as developer and landlord and soon the portfolio expanded to over 4,000 sought-after rental apartments and houses.
In light of this rapid expansion, Century have partnered with a completely new company to manage, operate and market their entire rental portfolio. Going forward, Houss will oversee all actions relating to Century’s rental units and act as the Landlord and Managing Agent. Many of the original Century staff have already moved into the employ of Houss, which will ensure the seamless handover of the portfolio.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to manage Century’s rental portfolio” says Jessica Hofmeyr, who will be heading up Houss. “We have all been working on these projects for many years, and our passion for the product remains strong and focused.” Going forward, tenants and prospective tenants for rental properties, will make contact with Houss. Residents and investors wanting to purchase land and completed units, will make contact with Century Property Developments.
Already, the tenants in the over 4000 units have seen a shift in their invoicing from Century to Houss – but very little else has changed in terms of the superlative service and attention to detail that clients have come to expect. This sparked the new slogan that Houss have adopted; “Expect more” as that is the exact goal of the entire team.
