Every edition provides an in-depth and unbiased analysis of real estate market trends, highlighting market movement and property value trends. This up-to-date, accurate index is unaffected by delays in reporting of registrations at the Deeds Office, allowing potential property buyers, investors and existing property owners to get all the information they need at a glance.

Highlights in this month’s issue of the PGP Index are:

  • Despite an unexpectedly weak start to the year for the SA economy, the loss of momentum in local house price inflation has been limited.
  • The SA property market continues to compare favourably to other global markets.
  • An easing in stock shortages could explain Gauteng’s price underperformance relative to other major provinces.
  • The local residential housing market remains resilient and another real (inflation-adjusted) increase in house prices is anticipated this year.
