For decades, baby boomers ruled the corporate world and, during this time, one of the key hallmarks of a company’s success was always its property; preferably a large, imposing building at a prestigious address where the workers all gathered together daily at the same time to conduct business.

Buying and selling property is a complex process, made all the more daunting by a multitude of potential pitfalls that can compromise a sale, but even more perilous is the proliferation of brazen fraudsters whose increasingly sophisticated scams are not only fleecing buyers and sellers but also property practitioners.

After a four year high of unprecedented double-digit growth, South Africa’s strongest market took a knock in 2017 with a significant drop in sales volumes and price growth, but the new year has got off to a promising start with a record apartment sale price and three sales within 24 hours of listing.

Renewed energy has been the hallmark of the Gauteng market since the beginning of the year; the change underpinned by a more positive national sentiment prompted by the change in national political leadership.

Boomtime for Cape Town's East City Precinct

For many years, Cape Town's East City Precinct was regarded as the less desirable fringe of Cape Town’s CBD, largely overlooked by the developers who have been reshaping the city scape during the last decade.

Cape Town’s popularity as a world-class tourist destination has resulted in a spike in the number of homes available for holiday lets and fuelled investor demand for sectional title units with short term rental potential.

As the only South African city with a thriving CBD, Cape Town’s adjacent City Bowl uniquely offers the perfect synergy of urban accessibility and suburban lifestyle, which makes it especially appealing to millennials (under 35’s) who accounted for 42% and 25% of recent buyers in Vredehoek and Gardens respectively.
