With indications of renewed interest among South African buyers in purchasing residential property, Pam Golding Properties is taking the initiative in showcasing some of the most desirable real estate from around the country at key venues in Gauteng, commencing with the Taste Expo to be held at Monte Casino, Johannesburg from 30 September – 4 October (2009). This is followed by exhibitions at Menlyn Mall in Pretoria from 8-11 October and Hyde Park shopping centre in Johannesburg from 15-18 October.


Comments Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group: "Now that we are seeing increasing interest in the residential property market we believe the timing is right for us to take our own exhibition of prime real estate from all the regions around the country to the Gauteng market. While our focus is on marketing real estate, our area specialists at these exhibitions will also profile each region, with regional hubs portraying the various regions and prime-located properties on offer ie Western Cape's Cape Town metropolitan areas, Boland and Overberg regions and Garden Route, the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, and the inland provinces – including of course Gauteng."


PGP is the only real estate exhibitor at the popular Taste Expo, which is primarily a leisure/lifestyle exhibition, while Menlyn Mall and Hyde Park shopping centre are major centres which generate extremely high foot traffic.


The properties exhibited are across a broad price range from approximately R1.2 million to in excess of R20 million and include trendy urban apartments, prime coastal and waterfront homes, wildlife, golf, wine and eco-estate residences, spacious family homes, luxurious mansions and idyllic island style villas in Mauritius and the Seychelles.


At exclusive Eden Island in the Seychelles PGP is marketing a new release of 18 luxury beachfront apartments and visitors to the Menlyn and Hyde Park shopping malls can view a full scale model of this sought after development. Comments Chris Immelman MD of PGP's Projects Division: "This is the last opportunity to buy into this hugely successful residential marina development in the Seychelles at last year's prices. Now available for purchase are four one bedroom beachfront apartments priced from USD345 000-355 000, 10 two bedroom apartments priced between USD515 000 and USD595 000, and two three bedroom apartments from USD695 000-725 000. There is no transfer duty other than notary fees, and rental pool opportunities provide income potential for home owners.


"As the Seychelles is a Southern African Development Community member there is no offshore limit for South African purchasers, who are also entitled to residency of the Seychelles. The homes are fully air conditioned and include an electrically powered vehicle for travel around the island and major kitchen appliances. Complete furniture and décor ranges are available to buyers while a fully operational clubhouse with deli, fitness centre and swimming pools is available to residents. All the homes are right on the waterfront with a private mooring included, and spectacular views of beaches, forests and mountains."


A range of exclusive properties in Mauritius will also be marketed by PGP at all three Gauteng exhibitions. With a championship golf course and beach club fully operational, at Tamarina Golf Estate and Beach Club situated on the island's west coast limited re-sales are available with large villas constructed in contemporary tropical architecture and set on generous stands - priced from USD1.8 million.


On the south coast of Mauritius at Villas Valriche, elegant plantation-style villas border the Le Golf du Chateau championship course, set on tropical landscaped grounds and overlooking a beautiful lagoon. The villas are priced from USD1.1 million. At La Residence in Grand Baie, 48 fully-furnished, resort-style apartments provide an investment opportunity, priced from USD289 000 and managed through a rental pool system, while on the west coast at Matala, a lifestyle country estate, 54 villas are selling priced from USD880 000.
