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.

A most informative session. I enjoy the differing viewpoints and questions posed. I think these webinars are important esp. in these unprecedented times and they are a good way to  share knowledge  within the industry.

Well done to the team, maybe webinars are the way forward , except for the country seminar.

Keep on keeping the valuation profession abreast of market developments in the various property sectors.

I appreciate all the effort that goes into these webinars. It is much appreciated.

I have a learn a lot, this could be so helpful for my final exams

Good presentations with wealth of information.  Helped us to understand operations at different sections in the industry. Looking forward to more of such enriching toppics in the future.

My life was mostly orientated around the township (where i resided) and a suburban town where i mostly attended school.  Having to be exposed in both the township and suburban environment for most of my school life, i was always observant and intrigued about how spatially different both areas were.

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.
