56% of home buyers are single, says FNB

FNB Home Finance has revealed that the number of single applicants who bought residential property through the Bank increased from 48% to 56% between 2016 and 2018.

A survey recently carried out by the respected property analysts, Lightstone, has revealed a range of statistics that will be of interest to anyone keeping track of property trends in South Africa today, says Rowan Alexander, Director of Alexander Swart Property, the Cape Town estate agency headquartered at Brackenfell.

“South Africa’s residential market is in for an interesting time in 2019, but our predictions for the year are all positive, and we believe that home buyers and investors who take the plunge and buy early will be well-rewarded.”

Although the Camps Bay market has responded predictably to the prevailing socio-economic climate with lower sales volumes across the board, it has proven more resilient than most comparable areas this year with a 1.88% increase in the average house price and a diminishing gap between asking and selling prices.

South African millennials are buying homes

Millennials in South African have purchased homes in great numbers in recent years. According to statistics supplied by property group Lightstone, almost 330 000 millennials bought homes in South Africa between 2015 and 2017 and 70% of them were first-time homebuyers.

The latest figures from the respected property analysts Lightstone bear out the bullish statements that he has from time to time made about the prospects for what is arguably the Cape Town Northern Suburbs’ most prestigious and popular suburb, Durbanville, said Rowan Alexander, Director of Alexander Swart Property, this week.

As expected, the Monetary Policy Committee kept the repo rate stable, with analysts and market commentators ahead of today’s announcement (24 May 2018) pointing to a more hawkish stance amid a weaker rand.

As our roads seem to get busier every year, people are seeking ways of reducing their commute times to improve their quality of life.
