Residential property price growth (year-on-year) slowed to 1.9% in November from 2.6% in October, according to the FNB House Price Index.
Considering inflation of 6.4% in October – the latest available figure – real house prices are falling.
House prices are down 4.3% in real terms since December 2015 and down 21.9% since December 2007.
FNB expects real house prices to continue falling – by around 3% - throughout 2017.
