Area property information

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that property in Moreleta Park consists of 55% sectional title units, 25.19% estates and around 19.8% freehold property. He says that property prices in the area saw excellent growth between 2004 and 2008, with the average price of freehold property more than doubling during that period. While prices saw a slight dip in 2009 and 2010, the effect of the global slowdown had very little impact on the area’s prices compared to some other regions throughout the country. Goslett notes that in 2011 prices saw recovery and have been on an upward trend ever since. Last year both freehold property and sectional title unit prices hit new records, with the average freehold property price around R1.691 million and the average price of sectional title unit approximately R934 000.

Goslett says that the area has been particularly popular among buyers under the age of 49 years old recently, with around 46.05% of recent buyers between the ages of 18 and 35 years old and 31.16% between the ages of 36 and 49 years old. Currently about 45% of existing homeowners in the area are between the ages of 36 and 49 years old. This age group also represents the highest percentage of recent sellers (42.4%).
