Thank you SAIV for excellent, very informative webinars.  This is the future of continuous education and training.  Much better than the conventional seminars, where all info of various speakers are all cramped in, in one or two days.

Valuers request government to accelerate infrastructure development

12 February 2021 The South African Institute of Valuers (SAIV) has welcomed the State of the Nation Address (SONA) by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday, 11 February. The South African Institute of Valuers, founded in 1909, is the national society of professional real estate valuers. Commenting on the address, SAIV president Tracey Myers said they are thrilled to hear about the launch of the Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan which focused on a massive rollout of infrastructure throughout the country; a massive increase in local production; an employment stimulus to create jobs and support livelihoods; and the rapid expansion of our energy generation capacity.

“The delay in implementing the plan will have a massive effect on the development that needs to be undertaken, a lot of our guys are working on new developments and in order to do that we need to maintain infrastructure which becomes a developer’s cost. Leading to the development being overpriced with the financial institutions not being willing to fund, ultimately resulting in the developer not being able to produce,” said Myers.

The SAIV also believes some of the direct knock-ons of delayed infrastructure development include the Gautrain expansion project being stalled and the delay in a new road network which would result in less traffic in business hubs including Sandton. “This results in people spending more time in cars which emanates in lost productivity hours further hampering economic growth,” she said.

In conclusion, Myers stressed that valuers have a big role to play in the economy and urged government to work with different stakeholders including business to hasten infrastructure growth. “As valuers, we are valuing land during pre-development to see if financial institutions will provide support. Additionally, we are valuing existing structures for re-bonding and insurance purposes, which makes us critical in the infrastructure space. We are hoping the proposed infrastructure development plan will revive interest in the market, which will ultimately lead to development in the construction industry”.

WATCH: Engineering a solution to slow infrastructure rollout

Infrastructure remains the centrepiece of the Reconstruction and Recovery plan, which promises to enable a significant expansion in the delivery of public infrastructure, creating jobs, unlocking investment and boosting aggregate demand. But research firm Intellidex points out that there remain serious chicken/egg problems around required PFMA/MFMA/PPP regulatory changes to meaningfully unlock infrastructure rollout. Ahead of the State of the Nation address Michael Avery hosts Sugen Pillay, President of the Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA); Tracey Myers, President of the South African Institute of Valuers (SAIV); and Vishaal Lutchman, CEO of the South African Institution of Civil engineers (SAICE); for a roundtable on what they would like the President to focus on to unblock the constipated infrastructure pipeline.

The future of the Property Valuation Profession in South Africa towards 2040

The property valuation profession is ageing whilst the scope and demand for its work is ever increasing. The current Covid-19 crisis has amplified the need of valuation services given the uncertainty in the property market going forward. However, the sustainability and longevity of the profession remains in balance and various challenges threaten the very existence of the South African Valuer in the future. A fellow Valuer has taken upon himself to undertake a research study for academic purposes and to address some of the current and future challenges. This study seeks to take a diagnostic approach and forecast the future of the profession. Very limited research is focussed on the sustainability of the valuation profession in South Africa, especially on the backdrop of the 4th Industrial Revolution, and this study seeks to correct this. You are invited to participate in this historic study that will help chart the way forward for you and future Valuers. Are you designated as a Professional Associated Valuer or Professional Valuer? If so, your perspective is needed in a short interview that will be carried out by an independent professional researcher.

Please click here to fill out your contact details and someone will be in touch with you to arrange an interview, via Zoom or MS Teams, at a time that is convenient to you.
