How to go 'green' in Sectional Title

Steep annual increases in municipal electricity and water tariffs are a constant incentive for sectional title (ST) schemes and housing estates to implement alternative energy and water supply solutions.

The South African Gross Domestic Product (GDP) decreased by 2.0% in the first quarter of 2020, Statistics SA has revealed.

The City is aware that during these difficult times, property owners are finding it difficult to pay their municipal rates and services in full, as their monthly income has been impacted due to the announcement of a national lockdown and we recognise the massive impact this will have on our already fragile economy. 

Kim Pfaff-Karg, BSc Property Studies (Honours) is the Chief Investment Officer at Spear REIT Limited, a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

With the South African Reserve Bank’s announcement of interest rates cut of 100 basis points and earlier transfer duty exemption for properties below R1 million by the Minister of Finance, local regulations have made it attractive for first-time home buyers to enter the market.

In line with market expectation, the Reserve Bank has cut the repo rate by 100 basis points to 5.25% per annum, Governor Lesetja Kganyago announced on Thursday.

The residents of Mzuri, a new residential estate in Somerset West, will not be left in the dark during load shedding, thanks to the developer’s forward-thinking investment in alternative energy options.

The South African Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contracted by 1.4% in the fourth quarter of 2019, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) has revealed.
