Comment from Carl Coetzee, CEO of BetterBond, on today's repo rate increase:

Today’s announcement to hold the repo rate steady at 3.5% marks a full year that South Africans have been able to make the most of a historic low lending environment, says Carl Coetzee, CEO of BetterBond.

The residential property market continues to strengthen, as interest rates remain at record-low levels after a year in which the repo rate remained below 4%, says Carl Coetzee, CEO of BetterBond.

Make buying your dream home an informed purchase by knowing your credit score.

After the five aggressive repo rate cuts last year that dropped the prime lending rate to a historic low of 7%, homeowners and aspirant buyers have been holding their breath, waiting for the pendulum to swing the other way in 2021.

South African home buyers can look forward to a few more months of record-low interest rates as the Monetary Policy Committee has once again opted to hold the repo rate steady at 3.5%.

Young investors give property the thumbs up

The future of South Africa’s housing market is looking bright, as aspirant buyers between the ages of 18 and 24 are the most optimistic about the merits of investing in property.

Buying a home is probably one of the most important - and expensive - purchases many people will make.

If the past year has taught us anything, it is how important our homes have become to us.

The South African Reserve Bank has just announced that it is holding the repo rate steady, as South Africa battles the second wave of the COVID-19.
