Understanding Housing Markets in South Africa

In order to understand the affordable housing market in South Africa and its potential opportunities for both city governments and the private sector, the South African Cities Network (SACN) partnered with the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance (CAHF) to develop affordable housing profiles for each of its nine member cities. The intention of these profiles is to assist both the public and private sectors to better understand the workings of the affordable housing market. Each city profile also begins to identify some areas of investment and hopes to contribute towards changing the mindset that (to date) does not see this sector as profitable for investment and development.
