The mercury is rising as the peak tourist season gets underway, and Cape Town’s beaches and scenic mountains are resplendent, reminding us why the Mother City has just been named one of the best three travel destinations in the world by Lonely Planet.

A well-kept eco-friendly garden can add value to your home.

Welcoming today’s decision by the Monetary Policy Committee meeting to again hold the repo rate steady, Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group, said that South Africa’s housing market continues to demonstrate maturity and ongoing resilience.

Much has been said about the attributes of living on a residential estate, and while lifestyle appeal is a crucial component, the fact is the sound investment value both in terms of capital appreciation and potential rental income also speaks volumes to property buyers across the country, says Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group.

A mere three hours from Cape Town and 90 minutes from the Garden Route, Prince Albert, an exceptionally beautiful Karoo town set against the backdrop of the Swartberg Mountains of the Western Cape, has over the years established itself as a leading country town.

Relocating for a better lifestyle which includes living off the grid in a more self-sustainable manner is catching on fast in the coastal Garden Route areas of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Sedgefield.

Easy access to the workplace, educational institutions, shopping, entertainment, transport, and other facilities, as well as security, remain important concerns to the residents of Pretoria, and are assisting to drive ongoing demand for properties in well-situated estates and sectional title complexes.

Private sector real estate investment in the suburb of Richmond Hill in Port Elizabeth is rising on the back of ongoing regeneration projects, with a record 68 percent of businesses and 34 percent of home owners making improvements to their properties in 2014. 

While much has been said regarding the slowing in house price growth in recent months, the residential property market in Gauteng is a highly complex one, with sharp regional and suburban variations, and there are a number highly positive developments within the region’s property sector.

“While many South African consumers have started to feel the economic pinch in recent months, the demand for accommodation in the greater Johannesburg area has continued unabated, and this has ensured that the residential rental property market in much of the region has remained robust.
