Since then, a number of his ventures have been focused on breathing new life into abandoned properties through refurbishing their interiors with his own refined and distinctive taste. From finding the properties, to rolling his sleeves up on site, to finally handing a pair of newly minted keys to the owner, Joseph strives for a feasible balance between value and aspiration. Most of his projects have either sold (>30% Margin) or rented (>8% Rental Yield) within months on the market and the record breaking rental income at 62% above market rental.
