Has 10 years of zero growth damaged fundamental belief in property?

Traditionally, property has always been a cornerstone of anyone's investment portfolio. But an investment demands a return. Since the financial crisis of 2008, the residential property has performed very poorly, not quite keeping up with inflation for 10 years. At 4.8% growth (against inflation at 5%) the market has, in fact, flat-lined over the longest period in my 35-year career.

Urban regeneration - is it viable in South Africa today?
Urban regeneration - is it viable in South Africa today?

As cities age, buildings deteriorate and become overcrowded. Residential areas expand further from the CBD, causing commerce to follow, until the city centre is merely a ghost of its former self. Rentals drop, vacancies rise and criminal elements often move in, making an erstwhile vibrant CBD dangerous and unproductive for both commerce and residents. Investor portfolio values drop to a new low, and this is when it becomes clear that there is a need to regenerate the area, or accept a loss and sell out. Regeneration has been accomplished in many cities of the world, including in South Africa.
