Investors have yet to score in the property sector

Surely real wealth comes from income, not the capital growth, and here is where investors have yet to score

“The growth of the listed property sector from R8bn to R63bn in six years has been spectacular, rewarding investors with returns that nobody predicted. Yields have fallen from 16% to about 7% in that time and values have risen accordingly. The show isn't over yet either - but it has changed. There will still be capital growth coming from further re-rating of SA property as it converges with international listed funds. However, the change is likely to be slow, and this will disappoint the many investors who've been getting money for nothing from rapid capital growth. But surely real wealth comes from income, not the capital growth, and here is where investors have yet to score.” Ian Fife

On the 19 July Ian Fife will be discussing the current and future outlook of the property sector in South Africa at the Real Estate Investment World conference at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton.. He will cover issues such as the key trends within the different sectors of the property market in SA (both listed and unlisted), key challenges facing local and international developers and investors and how these challenges have been overcome.
