Comments Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group: “It is our long-held belief that Africa is going to see a significant trend of returning intellectual capital. It’s very exciting to be playing such an important role in the social and economic prosperity of this beautiful continent. Our team is well positioned to offer home-comers the best property solutions throughout our network of offices in South Africa – and the rest of Southern Africa – as well as Mauritius, Seychelles, Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria.”
Pam Golding Properties will showcase a broad range of properties in Africa at Homecoming Revolution’s Speed Meet Africa event in London on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March, 2015 at Olympia Conference Centre. This unique, interactive format brings together hundreds of Africans with employers and relocation providers, with the London event being followed by similar Speed Meets in Houston, New York, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Nairobi and Lagos. These events include speed meets, high-profile employer engagement platforms, inspirational speakers, practical workshops and informative case studies.
At the London event Pam Golding Properties will be hosting presentations on ‘Buying property in Africa’. Says Dr Golding: “Increasingly, we find that international property buyers - including diaspora planning to return to their countries of origin - are looking to invest in residential property on the African continent. Their purchase decisions stem from a variety of reasons, including permanent relocation, acquiring a leisure home or home for partial use during the year, retirement or pure investment. We also find access to high quality schooling and other educational facilities is an important factor for purchasers from other countries in Africa, particularly when seeking residential property in South Africa.
“Buyers emanating from outside South Africa who do acquire property here often choose to relocate or stay for long periods at a time, and often even invest in commercial businesses, bringing foreign direct investment into the country and contributing to the economy through increased employment opportunities, improvements to properties or their own direct consumer spend. We find an increasingly broad spread of countries around the globe are represented in those international buyers who purchase property through us, with UK purchasers traditionally the most prevalent, but with buyers from the rest of the African continent, such as Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Nigeria playing an increasing role,” says Dr Golding.
