REIM March 2018 Issue: Words From The Publisher

Future thinking!


We’re in the third month of 2018…and what a year it’s been so far! Our theme for this month is The Future of Real Estate. Indeed, it seems to be the time to think about the future of South Africa as well. In our feature article, we find out how the changes we’ve seen over the past few months have affected property.

We also look at the future of technology in property: how long will it be before we’re all buying and selling properties with the help of Artificial Intelligence? Turns out, we already are.

In our commercial section, we look at the future of that infamous unfinished freeway in Cape Town, and speak to the experts about the best places to find industrial properties.

Moving offshore, we take a look at the places where the world’s wealthiest prefer to live and play.

We’re witnessing an exciting time for our country and for the property market in particular. We hope you enjoy the read!
