The Slide Begins In South Africa

Recommended Posts

From Moneyweb...


Du Toit added that sellers would have to accept lower prices or hold on to their properties and wait for the market to turn.

That may turn out to be a very long wait.

But great to see a VI talking the market down.

Mortgage rates in SA are currently around 10%, this is the lowest level in many years.

(The Reserve Bank rate is 7%, SA commercial banks operate on very hefty profit margins)

In 1998 interest rates hit 25%. The currency is about as stable as the Turkish Lira.

Still want to buy an "investment" property in a country where the deputy Prime Minister thinks Zimababwe has a model land redistribution policy?

And there are still stupid people out there paying UK prices...
