Western Cape

Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.


Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.

Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.

Free State

With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.


Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.


As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.

North West

The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.

Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.

Considering the current state of South African Politics and of course the current trend in the South African Property Market, the question arise: "Are these two aspects linked or not?"

In lieu of the current Political happenings in South Africa, such events create negative sentiment in and towards the country - they are potentially negative for residential property performance. This might impact in the following ways:

  • Direct Impact - Higher emigration rates.
  • Indirect Impact - General investor confidence is negatively affected, which can have a negative impact on economic growth and thus on purchasing power for residential property.


A high concern recently has been the steady increase in importance of emigration selling in suburban residential property markets - on average, the percentage of residential property sellers selling their homes for emigration purposes has rise from 9% of total sellers as at the final quarter of last year to 18% of the total by the second quarter of the current year.


Other factors, which are indirectly influenced by Politics, might include:

  • Rising inflation, influenced by global food and oil price surges, began to eat into nominal disposable income growth.
  • A further negative contributor to real disposable income growth more recently has been a slowing economy and formal sector job creation.
  • Rising household debt-to-disposable-income ratio. This was the first driver of a residential slowdown, through causing household debt servicing costs to rise.

Through the ability to influence the levels of emigration from South Africa's shores, political events such as those of recent days, have a direct impact on the state of the residential property market. The negative impact of political instability on the residential market can also be indirect, through its impact on the economic performance of the country, i.e.

  • The rand fell significantly with the rumors that Minister Trevor Manual resigned.
  • Slow economic growth has a negative impact on job creation and thus on household sector purchasing power.
  • This in turn also impacts negatively on the demand for residential property.

When comparing South Africa's current state of Politics, with that of Zimbabwe, one can hardly call it a crisis. Even if one look at the public exchange of words between ex president Thabo Mbeki and ANC president Jacob Zuma during the ANC presidential elections, and comparing this to the Obama - Hillary Clinton and even more so Obama - McCain clashes, our "public debates" seem pretty tame! But nevertheless, these events does have an impact!

The African continent has historically been racked by conflict and dictatorial governments often resorting to populist policies - and with Sub-Saharan Africa generally being the worst performing major economic region in the world, it is not surprising that any form of change raises a magnitude of questions and concerns. Even though the Mbeki era was far from perfect, the more anxious minority population groups had probably become comfortable with it, because over time, they thought they had come to know what to expect. In the case of the Zuma "revolution", with a strong Cosatu and SACP touch, future policy is something of an unknown.

But why would the issues of the minority groups be an issue from the property market's perspective? Because, although the suburban markets are steadily transforming, the bulk of the total property market probably still remains in the laps of the 3 minority groups (mainly whites), and a tremendous volume of property transactions takes place in these areas - given significantly greater mobility of people in middle to upper income areas.

Taking into consideration, the sensitivity of an important part of the residential market to political uncertainty, and having seen an increase in the importance of emigration selling as a portion of the total market, the political events of recent days should be seen in a negative light.

Property prices are particularly susceptible to public sentiment, and looming in the immediate future, is the April 2009 general election. A troubled election has the potential to crush the bright outlook for residential property.

When political trouble brews, buyers retreat, the demand for property withers, and sellers are forced to accept lower prices for their wares.

Much of the negative influence on things like:

  • Sentiment,
  • Emigration emanating from local politics,
  • Eskom's January crisis and
  • Zimbabwe's anticts

may have already entered the market even prior to the ANC Presidential election in Polokwane and immediately thereafter.

Will this negative impact last - probably not, since all these factors come and go in cycles and they are the predominant drivers of what is always a cyclical residential property market. Such factors are not necessarily of long term concern, as they will continue to come and go as sure as the proverbial "death and taxes".
