>> Real Estate News - The crises that isn't

A horde of agents will leave' the industry next year - as they did last year and the year before

Estate agents will have to work harder to keep their jobs next year, as the property market settles down after six years of booming growth.

Despite complaints of a tightening market, deeds office data collected by Standard Bank shows houses selling steadily at about 160 000/year. It is likely to be the same in 2006...

Like working parents who fret over their kids, pet owners, can be plagued with guilt. Just what does your dog do at home alone all day? Is he pining away for you? Does she long for another dog to play with? Is your cat lonely while you're at work?
