The real estate sector contributed 5.6% to GDP, based on 2016 data. The
South African listed-property sector is worth about R500bn with about
46% of the value of the sector reflecting investment in overseas markets.

The real estate sector’s performance largely depends on economic drivers
and has been challenged by slow economic growth during the past few
years. In spite of this, the number of principal estate agents
registered with the Estate Agency Affairs Board grew by 4.8% from 2016
to 2017. Property development is not showing signs of slowing down, but
developers are struggling to increase occupancy rates due to oversupply.

South Africa’s real estate landscape is set to undergo major changes in
the future driven mainly by regulatory changes, including land
restitution, and technology disruptors. Growth in residential property
prices remained subdued in the first five months of 2018 with house
prices increasing 4% and 4.8% year-on-year in May.

There are a number of opportunities in the sector brought about by high
demand for student accommodation and gated communities and urban renewal
and regeneration projects. But low projected growth rates and slowdown
in economic activity could limit expansion and new development.
