You would be forgiven for thinking that Centurion is non-stop hustle and bustle, but a quick glance at some of the suburbs shows that you can choose whether you would prefer an apartment close to the Gautrain station or a home in the almost farm-like suburb of Irene.

Property Types

Centurion has a plethora of choices when it comes to real estate and due to the growing nature of this city, new residential property developments also play a major role in the property market.
