The greater Blouberg area suits all age groups of purchasers, whether their looking for a starter home, a forever home, or an investment.
Who is buying in the area?
The prices of homes are more attractive than most other areas. People living here tend to stay and upgrade within the area. We attract many Johannesburg and Durban buyers, as well as overseas buyers, who fall in love with our miles of sand, sea and world-famous view of Table Mountain. Blouberg attracts young families for its selection of schools, with a sought-after private sector. With many convenient shopping centres, and a new large shopping mall opening next year, restaurants, clubs and bars, Blouberg offers something for everyone.
What types of properties are available, and what can buyers expect to pay?
There is no other beachfront with such magnificent views as Blouberg, and on a summer’s day you can watch the kiteboarders for hours. Depending on your price bracket you can be on the beachfront, or within easy walking distance, for less than R2m for a stylish apartment. A stunning penthouse with views that go on forever can be yours for R12m. A short distance away and you can be in a suburban home with a large garden. One of the selling features of Blouberg is excellent value for money and an area that caters for all: young families, retirees, lock up and go – Blouberg has a lifestyle for all.
What attracts buyers to Blouberg?
Blouberg attracts buyers as prices are more realistic than other areas and the growth is phenomenal. The average price for a freestanding home is R1,5m in Blouberg Sands, R2,2 in Bloubergsrand, and R3m in West Beach, while the prices of a sectional title unit varies from R550,000 for a one-bedroom unit in a small block, to R3m for a two-bedroom unit in Big Bay. The MyCiTi bus makes it easy for commuting and residents do not have to leave the area for shopping, movies, sport and schools. Lastly, the ocean and our “Wonder of the World”, breathtaking Table Mountain. For many the dream becomes a reality.
