Base your strategic decisions on rigorous property forecasts

Making long-term and major strategic investment decisions is a heavy responsibility. To stay in the forefront, you have to be able to trust the information you use. This is exactly what the biannual study Rode’s SA Property Trends offers you.

What is Trends and how can you benefit from it?

Rode's Trends

Trends is aimed at general management — where strategic decisions are taken — and property investment analysts who are involved in asset allocation and viability studies. Valuers who use forecasting in their valuation method would also find it indispensable. It is a unique, statistically-based analysis and forecast of all key indicators affecting the property market and property investment – over the next 5 years. The forecasts are updated every six months using an econometric model and covers the major metropolitan areas of South Africa, thus giving you a complete framework for property investment planning.

The forecasts in Trends include those for standard capitalization rates, prime industrial and office rentals for major cities, office take-up for grades A and B combined for major cities, office vacancies for major cities, building costs, the property cycle, expected total returns on a notional office-building portfolio, etc.

Invest in Trends before you invest in property

To run a computerized and national market research operation yourself, would cost you about R700.000 a year or more – if you could find a property economist with expertise and the necessary database. Trends will bring the cost down to less than one quarter the salary of a secretary.
