Property Investment in South Africa

Significant opportunity exists for foreigners to buy South African Property in 2021

Property Investment in South Africa

Is property a good investment in South Africa in 2021?

The top end luxury property market has seen a significant price slump during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is partly due to foreign buying power effectively being locked out of the country due to numerous global travels bans and restrictions imposed by global governments on foreigners to travel in and out of South Africa.

This in turn has stalled the movement of top end property stock in South Africa. It is our view that once international travel picks up towards the end of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022, house prices in South Africa, will sharply increase as demand starts escalating at pace. This provides a great opportunity for foreigners to pick up luxury & sought-after property in South Africa at bargain prices in the coming months ahead of the anticipated upswing in demand!
