Banks prefer to bond wealthy properties

The proportion of bonded property showed an increase within the wealthy and affordable price segments from 2006 to 2010.
A recent study conducted by property analysts Lightstone indicates that South African banks prefer to bond high-priced property worth R1.5m or more, as buyers of these properties are considered less risky and more -likely to pay their bond repayments.

The proportion of bonded property showed a general increase within the wealthy and affordable price segments from 2006 to 2010, and this decreased proportionally for the comfortable price segment - even though the majority of properties sold in South Africa fall within this bracket.
