May StatsSA Building Statistics

May StatsSA Building Statistics – Very strong Residential Completions growth still, while on the Non-Residential side Industrial and Warehouse building activity appears to be the provider of “relative stability”

Based on data released by Statistics South Africa, private sector-financed building activity in the South African market for new housing continued to show divergent trends in the first four months of 2019, which might be related to lags in reporting.

In the week ahead, the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will meet to deliberate on interest rates from the 26-28 March, and FNB expects it to leave its policy Repo Rate unchanged at 6.75%.

Getting your foot on the property ladder isn’t easy for first-time buyers.

Data published by Statistics South Africa with regard to private sector-financed residential building activity (see explanatory note) showed that the planning phase of new housing improved in the first seven months of 2018, whereas the construction phase contracted.

The planning phase of residential building activity improved in the first half of 2018, but the construction phase contracted sharply.

With green building becoming a crucial part of developing smarter and more sustainable African cities, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is pleased to announce the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) as a key participant and sponsor of RICS Summit Africa 2018, set for Sandton this month.
