The affluent buyer, professionals and businesspeople alike who are nature loving and appreciate secure living. It’s for the individual looking for properties that will consistently deliver a high return on investment and are not deterred by the current economic climate. Welgedacht is for the individual that wants to put their own stamp of individuality in choosing the architectural design of their property and not be prescribed by one or two designs, as is the case with some other estates.

How has the area changed over the past five years?

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.
