The Editor’s Desk: The strange truth about the SA housing market
BizNews — It’s no secret that the SA housing market is not in great shape. House prices are down, sales are few and far between, and there are many lovely homes standing empty in good suburbs in Joburg and Cape Town. But the picture may not be quite as dire as it seems. Alec Hogg is currently looking for a home, and his perspective on the housing market is worth hearing. In this episode, Alec Hogg and Felicity Duncan talk about Alec’s experience with house shopping and what it tells us about how South Africans are feeling about their homes. They also talk about the Naspers Amsterdam listing and what ordinary South African shareholders should do about Prosus. They wrap up with a discussion of the ongoing troubles in the auditing profession.
