Harcourts now open in Louis Trichardt

International estate agency group Harcourts is now represented in Louis Trichardt in Limpopo, following the conversion of leading local agency Homenet Jana Marie to the global brand.
This follows the establishment of a partnership between Harcourts International and SA real estate giant Homenet group, which is now known as Harcourts Africa.
Jana Smith, owner of the Louis Trichardt agency, says the change is expected to further boost her office’s offering in the local market.  “We are confident that international exposure of local properties, and especially game farms, through the global Harcourts network will benefit local sellers. Interest in game farms as holiday properties among international investors is already high and we expect this to increase.”
Smith adds that Harcourts’ proven systems and cutting-edge technology will be a boon for local property consumers. “It will enable us to hone our offering in the market and offer even better service to buyers and sellers alike.”
The office started 2010 on a high note with three successful transactions recorded in the very first week of the year and Smith says that although buyers are still experiencing difficulties obtaining credit, the local market shows definite signs of picking up.
“Demand among buyers in the upcoming middle class remains buoyant and we are experiencing an inflow of buyers from surrounding rural areas who aspire to a middle class lifestyle with the facilities that a town offers.”
The biggest demand in town is currently for family homes in a narrow price band of R800 00 to R900 000. Smith says solid three-bedroom homes with two bathrooms and a garage are available in this range.
Meanwhile farms in the area are selling at prices of between R4000/ha and R9000/ha, depending on location and infrastructure. Smith notes that apart from buyer interest in game farms there is also good demand for land among local cattle farmers who are expanding their activities.
