With average selling prices of freehold residential property and sectional title homes increasing in value by 56 percent and 34.5 percent respectively from 2010 to 2015 (Lightstone statistics), Durban North’s property market strikes a chord with home buyers and instils investor confidence, particularly in the higher income group.

Perched on a ridge overlooking Durban's city centre, with views all the way to the Indian Ocean, lies a sought-after collection of suburbs known as Berea.

At one or another stage of life we are all bound to find ourselves faced with the dilemma of whether to rent or buy a home.

Home loan market still being driven by first time home buyers.  54% of applications are currently from first time homebuyers.

Named after a particularly verdant valley in the hills to the west of Johannesburg, the suburb of Florida started life as a mining camp just after the discovery of gold in the 1880s and, like many parts of the city, has had quite a chequered history.

Balwin Properties acquire development rights from Portimix in Johannesburg’s Kyalami and Waterfall node for R1.5bn.

Balwin Properties, South Africa’s largest homebuilder focusing on large scale sectional-title residential estates in high-growth, high-density metropolitan nodes in South Africa’s major cities, this morning announced strong interim results for the six months ended 31 August 2015.

Statistics released by ooba, show that the overall demand for sectional title property has risen year-on-year (yoy) by almost 7%.

With inflation within the target range and a sluggish economy struggling to regain impetus while the country experiences the worst drought in decades, the Monetary Policy Committee’s decision to further increase the repo rate by another 25bps was ill-timed, as a stable rate would have helped boost business and consumer confidence at a time when it is needed most, says Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group.

Balwin Properties Limited successfully debuted on the main board of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in the Real estate holding and development sector.
