What can buyers expect to pay for property in Mooikloof?
Although Mooikloof is an upmarket estate where prices are on the higher end, prices vary greatly. An entry-level home is priced at around R5,4m and the most expensive home was listed for R25m. An entry-level home typically has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three garages, domestic quarters and a borehole, while top-end homes usually include top-notch electronics, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, six garages, and a manicured 1ha garden. There are many homes in the R8m to R10m price range as well. Property prices in Mooikloof mostly depend on the age of the home and the quality of finishes.

What attracts buyers to Mooikloof Ridge?
Mooikloof Ridge is a unique security estate with 24 complexes housing more than 2,500 people. Open spaces, green walkways, swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, mini putt putt, cricket pitch, volley ball court and a beautiful clubhouse, create a welcoming community feel. The proximity to a convenient shopping centre across the road, with a variety of takeaways, garage, pharmacy and laundry contribute to its popularity with first-time buyers. Property prices vary from R650,000 to R1,5m, and I often find that when ready to move into a larger home, people keep their first property and rent it out.
