It matters not if you are a city slicker or a country bumpkin, whether you prefer starry skies or the hustle and bustle of a busy town or city, or whether you love the sound of waves crashing on rocks, every single one of us longs for the security of a safe home, making this the number one priority when looking at houses for sale.Sadly, South Africa has earned a rather tarnished reputation when it comes to security and safety, so it is really important to find your special house for sale in a safe and secure environment.Choose your lifetime investment and largest purchase with care, with safety uppermost in your mind, choosing houses for sale in safe areas only. Believe this or not, there are still umpteen places to find that are both safe and secure in South Africa.Cape Town is one of the world’s most magnificent cities, boasting wonderful, clean and safe suburbs. Most areas in and around Cape Town are a good option, have a large selection of houses for sale, and are in general considered safe and secure to live in. Few places in the world can beat the charisma that Cape Town offers to many, including international tourists.The West Coast of South Africa offers an idyllic existence if you are searching for a smaller place to settle down in. Little towns such as Yzerfontein, St Helena Bay and Churchhaven offer the kind of lifestyle that dreams are made of.The little towns found in the Karoo, such as Beaufort West, Britstown, Colesberg, Hanover and Laingsburg are only a few mentioned here, frozen in time, with the townsfolk living life at a sedate and slow pace.Port St. Johns on the Transkei Wild Coast, the exquisite Garden Route, and Cape St. Francis close to Port Elizabeth, Durban and the West Coast of South Africa are all options that one should look at when searching for that perfect house for sale.Johannesburg and Pretoria offer job opportunities, but when looking for quality and a little piece of Heaven, then look a little father afield, as you might be pleasantly surprised.
