Real Estate Activities South Africa:

The real estate sector has been significantly affected by the pandemic as listed property shares fell and the commercial property sector was struck by growing vacancies and a decrease in property valuations. While sales in the residential property sector began to increase in late 2020, partly driven by record low interest rates, property transactions declined significantly in 2020, likely due to temporary closure of deeds offices due to the pandemic.


Low interest rates have seen more first time buyers enter the property market and more people buying second homes. Demand for industrial properties such as warehouse and logistics space is growing as more businesses have begun offering ecommerce and delivery to customers. With loadshedding set to last a number of years, property owners and managers are increasingly looking to install alternative energy sources and energy saving devices.

Offshore Exposure:

South African listed and private property companies are investing billions offshore to mitigate poor economic growth locally, rising municipal rates and taxes, political and policy uncertainty, and challenges such as construction site invasions. It is estimated that close to half of the South African listed property sector’s investment earnings come from offshore. Companies have also been involved in the development of retail and other properties on the continent.
