South African Reserve Bank governor, Lesetja Kganyago, announced that the Monetary Policy Committee has decided to keep the rates at their current levels - this coming off the Reserve Bank’s last decision in July to cut the rates by 25 basis points. Currently, the repo rate is at 6.75%, with the prime lending rate at 10.25%.

Momentum Investments however expects the monetary policy committee (MPC) of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) to announce two interest rate cuts of 25 basis points each before the end of the first quarter in 2018. This could be good news for the South African Real Estate Market.

In September 2017, the FNB House Price Index showed a further mild acceleration in year-on-year growth compared with revised August growth. However, a better momentum indicator is the month-on-month seasonally adjusted growth calculation, and this points to renewed slowing, suggesting that with the customary lag the year-on-year price growth rate is also probably set to resume a slowing trend in the near term, constrained by an economy battling to achieve any meaningful growth. This according to FNB’s House Price Index, October 2017

Until next month!

Please remember that Tivvit is just a portal to obtain the information. It is still up to the user to obtain the necessary permission to request the personal information of each individual, as set out in the new POPI act. Be aware that each Credit Profile enquiry may affect the credit history of the particular ID number. We thus ask that you exercise restraint when doing the requests.


If you still don't have a fully responsive, mobile friendly website, the time to upgrade is now. With most traffic coming from mobile devices we want to encourage all our users to make sure that their website is mobile friendly. If you upgrade/redesign your website during September and would like to add our Facebook app to your agency's Facebook page, we will include the app setup at no additional cost.
