South Africa’s largest bond originator, ooba, has released its property statistics for the first quarter of 2017 (Q1 2017).

Quarterly property statistics released by ooba, South Africa’s largest bond originator, show that residential property price growth is slowing as the supply of residential property outstrips purchasing demand.

Relatively stable growth in household credit and mortgage balances.

Although ooba’s property statistics for February indicate year-on-year growth in house prices, slower year-on-year price growth trends are emerging.

The Reserve Bank on Thursday increased South Africa’s repo rate by 25 basis points to 7% per annum.

So, you’ve been thinking about getting a foot on the property ladder, but your salary doesn’t quite cover the kind of bond you’d been hoping for.
