Lew Geffen, chairman of Sotheby’s International Realty, says the fact that sales are flourishing doesn’t come as a surprise. “The area has a solid reputation as being a family-friendly suburb. It’s one of 10 most established suburbs on the Western Seaboard and as such boasts excellent infrastructure in the form of good schools, medical facilities and shopping amenities. The area also boasts a large business and commercial hub, which means that many residents can avoid commuting to the city on a daily basis.”
The lifestyle enjoyed by residents in this suburb appears to be a major draw card and, judging by the stats, those who move here aren’t in any rush to leave. Lightstone statistics show that 45% of those who live in the area have done so for the past 11 years or more.
Wouter Pentz, licensee at Seeff Blouberg, says, “One of the big attractions of the area is that there is something here for everyone, from starter flats and smaller houses to large family homes, beachfront apartments and luxury estate and beach houses.”
Pentz says that although demand has driven prices up significantly over the past five years, the value buyers get when buying under R2m is exceptional.
