The generally market-friendly election outcome will in all likelihood create a degree of certainty and stability and go some way towards addressing the issues currently affecting  confidence in the South African economy - and as a consequence have a positive effect on the South African residential property market, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

No quick fix for SA’s Budget, but there’s some hope….

With the rand regaining some ground and inflation surprising on the downside this week, existing and aspirant home buyers will be relieved at the Monetary Policy Committee’s decision today (20 September 2018) not to increase the repo rate, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

South African property icon and leading businesswoman, Mrs Pam Golding (90), founder and Life President of the Pam Golding Property group, passed away peacefully on 3 April 2018 at her home Wittebomen in Constantia.

Today’s (28 March 2018) announcement of an interest rate cut of 25bps, coupled with Moody’s decision to not only leave South Africa’s credit rating unchanged at one notch above junk status, but to also upgrade the outlook from negative to stable, are positive factors which should provide welcome stimulus for the residential property market, says Dr Andrew Golding, CEO of the Pam Golding Property group.

National Budget geared to instill confidence

“It was a stable start to the New Year with the Reserve Bank today announcing no change in the repo rate at the conclusion of its Monetary Policy Committee meeting, as forecast by various market commentators,” says Dr Andrew Golding, CEO of the Pam Golding Property group.
