What makes this a great suburb?
Moreleta Park is an upmarket suburban area, pretty similar to other areas in Pretoria, with the majority of people commuting to work elsewhere; e.g. Johannesburg. It has a broad mixture of properties including office parks, retail shopping centers, hospitals, churches, upmarket single stand housing with flourishing gardens, gated security complexes, as well as typically smaller and higher density residential units built within an outer wall that forms a security barrier.
The typical buyer
58% of freehold sales in the past 12 months took place in the R1.5 million to R3 million price bracket, and 44% of residents in the area are in the 35 to 50 age range, with a further 33% falling into the 50 to 65 range.
Price overview
Three bedroom townhouses is popular with young families start from around R850 000 and range up to about R1.2 million, and there are also four bedroom options available at prices from around R1.3 million. However, we find that buyers with older children are increasingly favouring freehold homes in security estates, which make up about 26% of the stock in this area.
