As others will tell you, or as you probably already know from experience, getting a decent place to stay, be it to rent or to buy, is really difficult. What you really don’t need on top of all of that, is an estate agent telling you that you shouldn’t even come to see a property because you aren’t the right race.

We’ve seen similar stories before – ads specifically saying that the landlords only want white tenants. Well – not that land wasn’t politicised enough already, but we also have to navigate these treacherous waters in the real estate game. 

In this week's episode of SA Money Report, we examine how racial discrimination impacts the property market and interrupts economic growth. 

Helping us to chart a way through it all and give us some understanding is Fin24’s Khulekani Magubane. 



Fin24's aim with this weekly series is to take complex issues and break them down in a way that gives listeners an insight into a world that can often be impenetrable, either because of really dense figures, ratios and percentages - or because you need to navigate obscure financial terminology. 

New episodes of the show, hosted by Fin24 deputy editor Ahmed Areff, will be released every Friday.
