RealNet expands in Western Cape

The RealNet property group has further expanded its footprint in the lucrative Western Cape property market with the recent opening of a new franchise office in Brackenfell.

Franchisee Michael Zackon, a seasoned estate agent with wide experience in property sales and launching new developments, says Brackenfell offers diverse property choices at affordable prices for homebuyers and investors alike.

Prices range from about R350 000 to more than R2m and the area remains popular among people working in surrounding areas such as Paarl, Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Cape Town thanks to its proximity to national roads and a centrally located station for rail commuters.

Zackon adds that new development is taking place rapidly and his office is already negotiating with developers to launch a series of new units that will come on to the market soon.

The new franchise covers the entire Brackenfell area, including suburbs such as Protea Village, Protea Heights, Ruwari, Morgenster, Morgenster Heights, Ferndale, Springbok Park, Eden Park, Vredekloof and De Tuin.

Prices of the bachelor apartments that are very popular in the area start at around the R350 000 mark, while one-bedroom apartments in Ferndale sell well at just below the R400 000 mark. Some very competitively priced properties are also available from time to time, Zackon says. A two-bedroom apartment in Ferndale, for example, recently sold at R385 000.

Older homes of approximately 200sqm on a 770sqm stand sell at around R910 000 while solid three-bedroom homes can still be had at just below the
R1m mark. Upmarket homes in Vredekloof reach selling prices of around R2m.

Zackon says it was an easy choice to join the RealNet group. "The group lives up to its national motto of 'We make it happen' and offers an incredible work platform that enables our property consultants to carry their offices with them wherever they are. And that means they are available at all times to give clients the service they deserve from a top class property brand."

RealNet Brackenfell has also committed itself to the community, and plans to rotate charity projects by allowing its sole mandate clients to select their charity of choice. "We strongly believe in giving back to the community that gives us our foundation and we are committed to help improve the lives of those in need," he adds.
