Private Property started as a ‘for sale by owner’ website, which allowed users to sell their own property on the website. Over a period of time, it has grown into a comprehensive set of property listings from across South Africa. Private Property has earned a glowing reputation as a one-stop shop for all things property in South Africa.
Caxton Publishers on the other hand has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the largest publishers and printers of books, magazines, newspapers and commercial print in South Africa.
The Johannesburg leg of the 2018 Property Buyer Show hit the Sandton Convention Centre recently. KZN’s show was held just before that.
The show not only provided potential buyers with invaluable information but also had great value for the exhibitors who took part.
Networking and building rapport were the order of the day for the developers, with some achieving sales during the two-day show.
“The first thing we were looking for when we came here is qualified leads and the second thing is being able to speak to people in person about our products, it makes a difference,” explained property app developer Mobile At Work CEO, Donald Currie.
The Property Buyer Show also welcomed new developers, SevenCapital Property Developers, from the United Kingdom (UK) into the South African market who were optimistic about their future in South Africa.
“There’s a desire for people to learn a little more about the UK which is great and that’s why we’re here to give them that education. There’s also a few other UK developers here which shows you that there’s a demand,” commented SevenCapital’s Director, Johnny Conran.
