Welcome to 2017

Welcome to 2017

…. not sure about you but 2016 was not a particularly good year for the Real Estate industry in SA. We saw the Prime Lending Rate go from 9.75% to 10.5% in the first half of the year. This, together with a couple of very negative and concerning economical and political movements put a bit of a damper on the market with most agents I spoke to reporting a drop in sales for the year.

Enough of 2016 and enough negativity over that market, the macroeconomical situation of the country and the dreaded word ….. “Politics” … blah blah blah … we have work to do and properties to market and sell.

2017 is here and we are going to “hook it” …. we are going to “hook it real good”. Stock in the Real Estate market is and always will be king! There are buyers for well priced properties. Although there are many factors that play a role like area (location), condition and specifications ….. “PRICE” will be the determining factor. If you price right, you will sell.

STEYN REALTY is serious about delivering an exceptional service to out clients being Property SELLERS, BUYERS, LANDLORDS & TENANTS. We have the experience, knowledge, marketing expertise, professional attitude and the drive to assist our clients with any Real Estate related query or assistance they might have. Where we can’t assist we will try to point you in the right direction. We have a list of professional and capable bond originators, attorneys, electricians, plumbers etc who we refer to our clients on a regular basis.

Buying or Selling Property is serious business and you need to team up with an Estate Agency who is just as serious about what they do. STEYN REALTY would love to assist you, no matter how big or small your property …. we do it all. We can also manage your rental portfolio, find, screen and place tenants on an ongoing basis.

Seller Information



I recently posted this article on our website in an attempt to notify sellers and future property sellers as to the potential pitfalls / costs when selling.

Just in the case of purchasers who need to do their homework before buying, making sure they are credit worthy and what they can afford, Sellers also need to do their homework ….

While touching on a couple of other issues, the article aims to outline most of the potential costs that Sellers may be responsible for during the sales and registration (transfer) processes. It covers the following:

  1. Avoiding Penalty Interest
  2. Bond Cancellation Costs
  3. Compliance Certificates
  4. General Condition of the Property and
  5. Nomination of the Transferring Attorney Firm.

It’s about more than just selling houses …..

As an agent, you want to be successful and earn loads of cash ……. right!!!?

You might not know this but not many agents (none that I know of) work at agencies where they are paid a set / basic monthly salary. In the sales industry, as in the wild, agents are the hunters / predators and they only eat when they kill. Agents work on a variety of different commission structures where they earn anything from 50% to 90% commission after VAT, PAYE and other monthly administration costs are deducted by the agency and this is how they get to earn all those cash ……. but it comes at a price. The price agents pay for the opportunity to earn a very good income is the fact that if you do not have any successful property registration, you won’t earn a cent. The economic phenomenon is called high risk = high reward, and its true!!

All successful agents I speak to have one thing in common ……. they have been in the industry for some time and they all agree, it’s not about selling houses. So what is it all about …….?

Here are some factors that play a HUGE role in the success of agents (apart from the normal salesman characteristics).

1. Industry Knowledge
Without this you are dead in the water. You need to know what is happening in the arena where you are playing / competing. There is a lot of competition out there and if they know more than you …… you are out!

2. Area Knowledge
What is selling, where is it selling, when did it sell, for how much did it sell, what is not selling and why, what developments are happing in the area, crime, schools, shopping centres, buss routes, taxis etc etc …… if you know more about the area than your competition …… you are in!

3. Database & Client networking
You need to keep track of your potential / past and present buyers and sellers and follow up regularly. Buyers need to be updated with new stock and industry changes that might affect them. Seller need to know about market changes that might affect the sale of there property.

4. Stock
You need to have stock. You need to have targeted marketing & farming campaigns in your specific area. These marketing and farming initiatives need to be aimed at specific buyers and sellers and need to be regular and continuous in order to have an affect. “He who has the most stock, controls the market ……”

5. Client relationships
The longer you stay in the industry, the more you will realise that past clients can be a major source of income further down the line. If you keep reminding homeowners that you are still actively working in their area, they are more likely to ask you to assist them next time they want to up or downgrade.

6. Integrity / Honesty and Business ethics
This is not a quick money making scheme. Agents approaching the industry with that mentality normally don’t last very long and when they leave, they have such a bad reputation that they won’t be able to return to the same area as agents. Keep your side clean, be honest with you buyers and sellers and they might even refer you to a friend or colleague ……. and that’s what you want, referrals!!

Each agent has his / her own way of doing busyness, own strong points and weaknesses and the areas where we work also differ a lot. Keeping the above in mind and incorporating some of this into your own busyness can hopefully assist in your success.

Have a good one
Your Agent

Heads UP

… every now and again we have to look at some stats to see where we are coming from AND if we are on track to where we want to go. The last 17 months since Jan ’12 we have captured our transactions a bit differently so that we can extract valuable data on various aspects of our business.

RealPro is not a BIG Real Estate Agency, but we a fair a mount of business on the Westrand including Krugersdorp and Roodepoort. Enough to get some stats to look at ….. at least. In the last 17 months we registered just over R 72 000 000 worth of properties (Property Value)., with an average value of below R 1 000 000. We make use of bond originators where we can as we believe they add value to our business and to the majority of our buyers. We have some clients who prefer to go directly to their banks but the most use originators to see where they can get the best deal.

Yes, we do get many 100% bond applications, 54% of the registered deals applied for 100% bonds and 57% of them got it. Many got 95% or 90% or even as low as 75% and still continued with the transaction.

Below is a graph showing which banks granted the most applications (deals) during this 17 month period. Banks include ABSA, Nedbank, Standard Bank, FNB as well as RMB and SA Homeloans.
