Dear Reader

Are we not lucky! The Monetary Policy Committee did consider a 100 basis points rise yesterday but settled on the 50 basis point rise which would come into effect today. This means that commercial banks' prime interest rate is set to increase to 12.5 percent.

When we think about retirement villages we think about companionship, privacy and security. This week we saw the launch of Vue de La Mer Retirement Village in Jeffreys Bay with unsurpassed comfort and luxury befitting retired persons. The Vue de la Mer Retirement Village consists of upmarket Single Title Townhouses of the highest quality, Sectional Title Apartments & Assisted Living units with balconies, secluded garden atriums & luxury verandas. A Frail Care unit also forms part of the main buildings in the village. Thinking of retirement?

Environment Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk is expected to release the Integrated Coastal Management Bill on Sunday, his spokesman said, in what could be SA’s first substantial move to limit foreign access to its real estate market. Govt to limit foreign buying of coastal property

"Many people feel that generally higher fuel prices and transport costs are here to stay," says Dr Piet Botha, chairman of the Nationlink estate agency group, "and are now seriously weighing up the high cost of commuting long distances to work, school and shops against the generally higher prices of homes in inner suburbs and city centres." Petrol and property costs now in the balance

“Stay close to the experts and stay close to what is really happening and look forward to new horizons rather than looking backwards at the setting sun for solutions,” warn Bales Delaporte investment property experts. Property Investors cautioned for 2007

As far back as the late 1800s the reputation of Wilderness with its natural bounty of rivers and lakes and intrinsic peace and tranquillity, ideal for seaside holidays, was laid in a little stone farmhouse. Focus on Wilderness, Western Cape, South Africa

Enjoy!

Petrol and property costs now in the balance

Although fuel prices have come own from their mid-year highs, this week's increase (subs: Wednesday 6 Dec) indicates that prices are likely to remain in a generally higher range, and this is prompting a growing flow of homebuyers back to the inner suburbs.
