Description

The proposed research is an update of the 2012 research study entitled “The Size of the South African Property Sector”. This study aimed to size the South African property market as at the end of 2010 to provide a starting point against which various transformation charter imperatives could be assessed.

The aim of the research was to create a hub of knowledge about the size of the SA property sector, consolidating information and developing a common and consistent understanding of the sector for all participants. The report constituted a first step of a larger project by the Property Sector Charter Council. Subsequent phases involved an analysis of the Property Sector’s contribution to South Africa’s GDP as well as ownership and activity patterns within the sector, and was informed by input received from this report.

However, since the initial research was completed, a combination of low interest rates and an improved macroeconomic environment has resulted in an increased supply of new buildings as well as refurbishment of existing buildings by both the private and public sectors. Property values have also increased on the back of improved rental growth and an improved outlook.

Therefore, the update of the research will aim to provide an updated, accurate sizing of the South African property market as at 2014/2015 with the intention of providing improved granularity in the public sector and residential sectors.
