Across the market, residential property sales in Bloemfontein last year (2020) were the highest recorded during the past decade, despite the impact of Covid-19 and the lockdown, says Pam Golding Properties area principal, Ulrich Sirgel.

As the world grapples with the uncertainty surrounding the long-term implications of Covid-19, there is a measure of agreement on one thing - the global pandemic has fast-tracked numerous trends which were already emerging prior to the crisis.

Such is the consistent high demand for centrally located, well-priced residential property of calibre in the sought-after suburb of La Lucia just north of Durban, that a brand new nine-storey, 63-unit residential development.

A luxurious, prime located, four-bedroom Clifton bungalow in perfect position on 4th Beach has been sold by Pam Golding Properties for R70 million to an upcountry buyer for use as a holiday home.

After the worst economic downturn in decades, further dampened by the recent tightening of lockdown restrictions in response to the second wave of the pandemic and the recommencement of load shedding, economic growth – while admittedly coming off a low base - is still widely expected to show some positive growth of around 3% this year.

Competing against real estate companies from around the country, this is the 14th year that Pam Golding Properties has received the prestigious 5-Star award for ‘Best Real Estate Agency in South Africa’ (over 20 offices) in the world-renowned International Property Awards.

The Minister of Finance hit the nail on the head when he said that it is not only investors who need confidence, but also the average South African, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

Since June this year, residential property sales have escalated in the Eastern Cape hubs of Port Elizabeth and East London, and encouragingly, with brisk activity across all price ranges, reports Pam Golding Properties.

As South Africa continues gradually emerging from the national lockdown, the luxury residential property market is showing promising signs of increasing activity, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

The Marina Residential Estate offers secure living in the heart of the city, and such is the allure of the lifestyle it offers, within walking distance of some of the best shops, restaurants and entertainment Cape Town has to offer, that six sales have been concluded worth R85.6 million in the estate for July (2020) alone.
