Who is buying property in Panorama?
Young professionals and families prefer the Panorama area because of the wonderful schools as well as top-notch medical facilities in the area. The close proximity to major access roads that lead straight to the Cape Town International Airport, the central business district and Cape Winelands, makes it an obvious choice for those professionals who work outside of the area. The excellent shopping facilities also play a major role in buyers’ choice to settle in this area. The character of the suburb, being a family-orientated area with numerous parks and greenspaces, attracts families too.
