The announcement by the Monetary Policy Committee meeting that the repo rate remains unchanged is surely what is needed to help fuel increased activity in the residential property market, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

Building activity with regard to new private sector-financed housing in South Africa remained much subdued in the first eleven months of 2016 compared with the corresponding period in 2015, based on data published by Statistics South Africa.

Until very recently new owners of properties were held liable for the historical debt of a seller due to a municipality in terms of Section 118(3) of the Municipal Systems Act.

Holding the repo rate steady at today’s Monetary Policy Committee meeting today (24 November 2016) was the right decision and one which is expected to help boost consumer confidence at a time of the year when many are planning and making career and lifestyle decisions for the year ahead, says Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group.

Port Elizabeth has a reputation for being “the friendly city”, and its great schools, sandy beaches, salt-scented air and relaxed pace of life have certainly won the town many devoted residents.

Stenprop Limited (“Stenprop”), a UK based property fund listed on the JSE’s Main Board and the Bermuda Stock Exchange, announces its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2016.

Sectional Title homes have seen a long term rise in prominence in South Africa’s property trade, driven by mounting urban land and infrastructure scarcity, which requires a “drive” towards smaller average sized properties as we look to utilize land and infrastructure more economically.

Arrowhead, the South African JSE listed REIT, has declared a dividend of 82,55 cents per share for the year ended 30 September 2016.

October 2016 saw year-on-year growth in the average nominal value of middle-segment homes in the South African housing market remaining relatively low against the background of trends in and prospects for the economy and the household sector.

The Commercial Property Market has been seeing its average capital growth slowing in recent times, driven by economic growth weakness and interest rate hiking of recent years.
