In general the house price growth for the past five years in Welgedacht Estate and surrounding areas in the Northern Suburbs has increased drastically. Last year, we experienced phenomenal growth in Welgedacht on newly renovated properties. The reason being that there are hardly any plots available in Welgedacht Estate and surrounding areas like Kanonberg, Oude Westhof, Van Riebeeckshof, Protea Valley, Kenridge, Welgemoed and Loevenstein. Due to the popularity of these areas, buyers and investors are prepared to buy in the area, renovate the property and either sell it to make a profit, or buy-to-rent because of demand.
