'Rentvestor' a new breed of property buyer

South Africa is currently seeing the emergence of a new type of property buyer known as a “rentvestor”, says Gerhard Kotzé, MD of the RealNet estate agency group.

Despite of the poor performance of industrial stand values in the country overall, due to declining economic confidence, those in the East Rand and Cape Peninsula still managed to enjoy real growth in the second quarter of 2017.

Third quarter statistics (Q3 2017) from ooba, South Africa’s leading bond originator, show nominal positive growth of 3.3% on Q3 2016 in the average House Purchase Price.

Real estate consulting firm, JLL South Africa, has released its Q2 2017 research reports of the industrial markets in Johannesburg and Durban, the office markets in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town and synopsis of the South African retail market.

Gazetted in March 2017 for comment, the long-awaited Property Practitioners Bill is intended to repeal the Estate Agency Affairs Act 112 of 1976 and transform the entire property market.
