Agents Val Petzold and Mark Shagham sold a five-bedroom home in Milner Road Rondebosch for R7.9m – the previous record for this area of Rondebosch was R5.8m, paid for a four-bedroom home in Sandown Road.

In Fish Hoek Greeff agent Rob Mustart holds the record with a price of R10m paid for a four-bedroom home with two double garages in Simon’s Town Road. The sale included the household contents. The second highest selling price achieved since then is R5.8m for a four-bedroom Fish Hoek home.

In Noordhoek, Greeff agent Dale Gremels sold a four-bedroom home in Ratelklip Road, for R13.5m, achieving the highest selling price in the beach area Noordhoek for a home outside a security estate. The previous record selling price was R9m for a three-bedroom house in Protea Road, Noordhoek. This sale was also by Gremels.

In Kalk Bay a new record of R14m including VAT was set, for a five-bedroom home on Main Road, sold by Greeff agents Ashley Barnes and Heather Cape.

The previous sales record in Kalk Bay was R12m, achieved for a two-bedroom apartment with sea views.

Further along the False Bay coast line, in Simon’s Town, Greeff agent Bruce Durham sold a six-bedroom home with eight garages for the record price of R14.6m, beating the previous record sale by an estate agency of a five-bedroom home for R14m.

In Zwaanswyk, Greeff agent Mandy Kuhn sold a five-bedroom home in Almondbury Road for R21.85m. Previously, the top selling prices for comparable properties in the immediate area were R14. 173m for a home in Zwaanswyk Road, according to CMA, and Propstats records a sale in Zwaanswyk for R14 997 480,” says Greeff.

In Claremont, Greeff agent Debbie woods achieved the first and second highest selling prices, with the sale of a five-bedroom home in Monmouth Avenue, for R29.75m beating her previous selling price of R23m, for a comparable home in Adare Place.

In Bishopscourt, the second highest selling price of R42m was also achieved by Woods, for a six-bedroom home in Torquay Avenue.

“Strong demand and a shortage of stock has defined the property market and placed the advantage largely in the seller’s corner for most of the past 24 months,” says Greeff.
