Residential property market gears up for a busy season

6 September 2021 | Insights Team

Much is being said about the current state of our economy and the impact this is having here in South Africa. Yet while economic sentiment remains uncertain, the residential property market continues to demonstrate resilience, having remained buoyant for the past 12 months. In fact, it is anticipated that the residential property market is set to improve from September onwards, with increased listings achieving anticipated peak sales during October and November and tapering mid-December to year-end. 

Extraordinary opportunities 

There are a variety of reasons for this, such as semigration, emigration, financially squeezed homeowners, or simply homeowners looking to upgrade to an integrated work-from-home solution to name but a few. With tempting interest rates on offer and an uptick of willing buyers and sellers, astute investors are now eyeing properties perceived to be at fair market value and recognize the opportunity to acquire homes that previously may not have been seen on the market. This sentiment is confirmed by Leadhome Properties as seen in our data which concurs with our own forecast for the coming fourth quarter.
