Area property information

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.

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.
