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:

  • While house price inflation at a provincial level is losing momentum, within SA’s major metropolitan areas prices continue to accelerate.
  • House price inflation in the affordable price band remains buoyant and is fast approaching the peaks recorded during the 2004 boom
  • Coastal properties are once again enjoying a price premium over non-coastal regions, as the sector attracts renewed interest among cash-flush buyers.
  • While the outlook for the SA economy, and hence the residential property market, remains relatively modest, there are clearly areas of robust house price inflation within the various market segments.
