Residential property market on the rise

Despite a weak economy and continued pressure on disposable income, the residential property market is showing a marked increase in activity and demand across all price levels, according to Jawitz Properties CEO Herschel Jawitz.

The current lending climate is tough for first time buyers particularly with the stringent National Credit Act requirements and the worldwide recession affecting banks and how strict they are when it comes to approving home loans.

The low interest rate environment and slow growth in property prices make it a good time to buy from a value and affordability point of view. 

Homeowners in Cape Town must check their new municipal property valuations carefully to ensure they won’t be charged excessive property rates going forward.  The new valuations are being finalised in January and will be sent out in February. Objections to the given valuations can be made, but there is only a short time to do so.
