Some interesting facts obtained from the web in respect of buyers, rentals and province.
Statistics are per end of May 2022.
1) Average age of all buyers 38.
2) Average age if 1st time buyers
3) 90% of buyers were 1st time
4) Only 27% of approved bonds
were taken up with own bank.
5) Average purchase price
R1 048 000
These are national averages and the highest prices are recorded in the Western Cape.
The Western cape also had the highest rental growth YOY as well as for the first 1/4 of 2022.
I rest my case, why rent if you can afford to buy and own your own home.
