Disclosure statement* This is not an advert but an idea we wanted to share. All our sponsored content is always clearly marked.

Xander Nijnens, Executive Vice President at JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group, shares some hotel sector trends for 2018 as well as some insights on data like revenue per available room and midmarket segment growth drivers that could be useful for you if you have a space you’ve been thinking of renting out. In this month’s article, we bring you an idea that has worked in Johannesburg for you to consider implementing in Zambia thanks to these insights.

In their analysis, JLL Sub-Saharan Africa forecast an improved hotel performance and investment climate in Sub-Saharan Africa for 2018, with the budget and midmarket segments showing the strongest demand fundamentals. Global investor interest is likely to increase with a search for yield in a long global real estate cycle, as well as demand for platform investments in Sub-Saharan Africa. Despite high global debt liquidity, it is expected that financial leveraging will remain challenging in the region, while transaction volumes are expected to continue their upward momentum.

This positive outlook in the hotel sector opens up opportunities for other types of investments in property – one of which we go into in this article.
