Results from the listed property sector in 2020 showed property values reducing by an average of around 8%. And while listed property is just one component of the South African property sector.

JSE-listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties, has reported a lower distributable income per share of 26.2c for the interim period to 28 February 2021, driven principally by the impact of Covid-19 on the property sector and broader economy.

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.

What was once three apartment blocks managed through a family-owned trust in downtown Bloemfontein, is planned to become innovative shared accommodation catering for up to 300 residents to help meet the increasing demand for cost-effective, secure, and multi-purpose living in one of South Africa’s rapidly growing student towns.

South Africa’s student housing shortage is a crisis of affordability.

Redefine Properties, which turned 21 as a listed company this year, is well placed to benefit from logistics growth in Poland after hard lockdown restrictions locally and dividends withheld by offshore investments significantly dampened results for the year ended 31 August 2020.

The residential property market in the Eastern Cape has remained surprisingly resilient during the unprecedented times the economy currently faces, says Pam Golding Properties.

Covid-19 compounds student housing crisis

The construction industry in South Africa has been brought to a halt by the spread of Covid-19.

Bloemfontein is experiencing a surge in residential property transactions concluded by young home buyers, particularly first-time buyers, who are snapping up homes mainly in the price band below R1million, says Ulrich Sirgel, area principal for Pam Golding Properties.
