The latest national residential property market research shows the market is experiencing a slow-down.
However, Pam Golding Property Group Chief Executive Dr Andrew Golding says the market is not completely dead.
Golding says the performance of the national housing market is largely a reflection of the trends in the housing markets of the three major regions: Gauteng, KZN and the Western Cape.
In these markets the performance of the regional economy, coupled with local demographic trends, ultimately determines both the level of activity and the rate of house price inflation.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Golding.
