Can I, as a South African citizen, buy a property in SA from overseas?

Yes, you absolutely can. As a South African citizen living and working abroad, bank criteria dependant, you are entitled to between 50% and 80% home loan finance. You would need to supply all the required documentation for a home loan application and undergo the credit assessment set out by the banks. You are now able to complete your home loan application with O-YES Home Loans online and submit and sign all documentation electronically.
