Budiriro Properties

In 2013, CABS partnered the [[Harare City Council] in a $15 million project for the construction of 2,800 houses in Budiroro. Initially, customers were expected to pay about $5,000 deposit for two-roomed houses that were being sold for $22,000, and $7,000 for the four-roomed houses whose total cost was $27,000.

In September 2017, CABS relaxed the terms of access for the Budiriro mortgages. The bank increased Mortgage tenor from 20 years to 25 years,
