Centurion is located between Pretoria and Midrand and residents there rave about the suburb.
For Johan, one of the greatest things about Centurion is its country-like atmosphere. “You really don’t feel like you’re living in the city.” Johan also loves that there’s a real sense of community in Centurion. “Residents are really involved when it comes to the security of their suburbs and that makes a big difference”.
Johan says that despite a sluggish market, there are still good deals in Centurion. “There are many serious sellers with some great bargains on their hands. If you have the money, it’s a great time to come and see what’s on offer in Centurion.”
If the Mpofus were to rent their home in Celtisdale, Centurion, they reckon they’d get about R4500 a month.
Johan says the rental market is booming. “We’re fielding about 15 enquiries daily from prospective tenants. People are battling to get a home loan so the rental option is attractive. Rentals have gone up in the past year.”
If you can secure a loan at this time, Johan says this is what you can expect to pay: Anything from R320 000 to R450 000 to purchase a one-bedroom flat in Centurion; from R450 000 for a two-bedroom flat; and from R550 000 for a three-bedroom flat.
Johan acknowledges that many sellers are in financial difficulty at the moment. “Regardless of the circumstances, my advice to sellers is not to put their property on the market unless they really have to. Also, don’t try to include other debt in your selling price, because you will not sell your house.”
