“The ministry will play an activist role in monitoring this activity by the banks, in the interests of regulating the homeowners’ property market, whilst being alive to the complexity and sensitivity of the operations of financial institutions,” he said. “Irrespective of what sceptics may say, the record of this government on housing delivery speaks for itself. Since 1994, more than 2.3-million housing units have been made available for nearly 11-million people. The scale of government housing delivery is second only to China.” Sexwale also advised potential beneficiaries of the fund to “exercise responsibility” by adhering to the terms and conditions of their credit agreements. “Those who stand to benefit from such a financial platform include inter alia nurses, teachers, police, prison warders, government officials, certain categories of management, and blue collar factory and office workers. Monitoring complaince Sexwale also pointed out that he had raised concerns with the financial institutions over their compliance with the Home Loans and Mortgage Disclosure Act (HLAMDA), which requires banks to report on their lending patterns. “A large percentage of this is allocated to provinces in the form of Housing Development grants,” he added. Source: BuaNews Sexwale pointed out that there were currently 8 000 human settlement projects underway across the country, and that 219 000 housing units had been built by the government in the last financial year. “We came away satisfied at the positive outcomes, and agreed to form a joint working team to look into various aspects of housing finance – notably how to generate innovative ideas around the R1-billion Government Guarantee Fund that is being set up to assist the ‘gap market’,” Sexwale said. The government is to spend R16-billion on building new houses and sustainable human settlements for poor South African in 2010/11, says Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale, noting that South Africa’s housing delivery record is second only to that of China. “We emphasized to the institutions that in putting the floor under their operations in this gap market, financial prudency should remain paramount. In no way can there be recklessness in lending practices which may lead to flippant calls upon the Guarantee Fund.” “The bulk of this funding will go to the provision of housing subsidies to the bottom-most end of the market – the poorest of the poor, who earn [up to] R3 500 a month,” Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale said during his budget vote speech to Parliament in Cape Town this week. Government Guarantee Fund At that meeting, the Banking Association of South Africa cited the fact that the success of the government’s low-cost housing programme was “unparalleled”. Sexwale met with the financial sector earlier this week to discuss ways of increasing funding to both the low-cost and affordable housing markets, which could increase the number of houses built by government and private sector. 23 April 2010
The negative connotation around the word “sales” and the role of salesperson is no longer accurate. You don’t have to believe that you should “stop selling and start helping,” nor do you need to change your title to business development.
