From the Desk of Marcel Deacon POSITIVE NEWS FOR THE PROPERTY INDUSTRY What was positive for the property industry is that the numbers of civil summonses issued decreased by 5,4% year-on-year in March. This according to data from Statistics South Africa. We now learn that South Africa had the best performing housing market in the world over the longer term according to figures from the authoritative ‘Economist’ magazine. The publication’s Global House Price Index shows that SA house prices rose by a cumulative 418% over the past 12 years (1997-2009). That far outstrips any of the other 20 housing markets tracked by the index. The next best performers were Australia, Britain and Spain with growth of 181 %, 175% and 167% respectively. And now for the good news about SA property There are still challenges, but the US economy and property market are definitely in a “better place” than they were a year ago, and that bodes well for real estate elsewhere in the world.That’s the positive message to emerge from a recent meeting in San Diego of Sotheby’s International Realty directors and managers from around the world, who took note of a US National Association of Realtors report that sales of single family homes had shown a year-on-year increase of 16,3% in March to 5,3m units, while the median home price had risen 0,4%.
