Redefine well positioned for upward cycle

JSE-listed REIT, Redefine Properties, says its balance sheet is in a stronger position than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic struck and that it should be well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities by the end of the financial year in August. 

In this note, we continue with the 4th quarter 2020 results of our FNB Commercial Property Broker Survey, which surveys a sample of commercial property brokers in the 6 major metros of South Africa, ie. City of Joburg and Ekurhuleni (Greater Johannesburg), Tshwane, Ethekwini, City of Cape Town and Nelson Mandela Bay.

Real estate has long been a rewarding sector of the financial markets. Like all sectors, share prices and the underlying fundamentals of commercial property assets weakened in early 2020, as South Africa and the rest of the world came to grips with managing through the pandemic, with some sectors suffering more than others.

The South African Reserve Bank has just announced that it is holding the repo rate steady, as South Africa battles the second wave of the COVID-19.

JSE listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties has announced the decision by its Board to resolve to not pay a dividend in respect of FY2020 in the face of ongoing Covid-19 uncertainty.

JSE-listed Accelerate Property Fund today reported financial results for the six months ended 30 September 2020.

Sectional Title schemes that are not yet compliant with the reserve fund provisions of the Community Housing Schemes Ombud Services (CSOS) Act should rectify that position as soon as possible.

Spear REIT Limited (SEA:SJ), the only regionally specialised Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) listed on the JSE, reported its interim financial results today.

JSE listed REIT Octodec Investments Limited, today announced its annual results for the year to 31 August 2020, against a weakening economic environment exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

In this last quarter concluding in December 2020, the residential property market continues to gain momentum, and in some areas appears to be substantially busier - even when compared to peaks in previous years, says Richard Day, CEO of fixed-fee agency, Eazi Real Estate.
