Africans investing in Africa

While the number of international buyers in residential property in South Africa remains relatively low, at somewhere in the region of three percent nationally, investors from elsewhere on the continent – including returning expats - retain their appetite for the acquisition of South African real estate for a variety of reasons.

With green building becoming a crucial part of developing smarter and more sustainable African cities, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is pleased to announce the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) as a key participant and sponsor of RICS Summit Africa 2018, set for Sandton this month.

Leading South African property investor and developer Atterbury has introduced a landmark new medical development to its prestigious mixed-use Pretoria precinct, The Club.

New report overviews increased competitiveness of economy, FDI and REITS contribution to boosting real estate growth.

A technical recession and low investor confidence has produced a seven-year investment low in the commercial property market.

RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) has launched the Cities for our Future Challenge, calling on young people to come up with fresh, new ideas to help tackle the most pressing problems affecting cities in Africa and around the world.

Inaugurated this month (November 2017) in Toronto, Canada, new Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors President, John Hughes (FRICS*), emphasises the fact that infrastructure is vital to the successful growth of sustainable cities.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has launched their ‘Pride in The Profession: Celebrating 150 years of surveying successes’ campaign, calling on its professionals around the world to celebrate and to nominate outstanding contributions that the profession has made to society over the past 150 years.

The properties division of JSE-listed ADvTECH, Africa’s leading private education provider, has embarked on an aggressive growth and development strategy on the continent, which will see the group’s asset base expand to R6 billion by 2022.
