Buying Cape Town Property…

Cape Town, oh Cape Town – probably one of the most vibrant cities in the western part of South Africa. This big city is very well known not only in South Africa but also over the world for popular attractions like Table Mountain and Clifton beach. As a South African I’ve had the privilege to experience most the city has to offer from hiking Lions Head, or Table Mountain, to visiting the Waterfront, to going to weird and wonderful clubs and tanning on its sandy (and very cold beaches).

The amount of foreigners living or enjoying their holidays in Cape Town is normally a lot so chances are if you’re not a South African you’ll know someone staying there or at least who have been there. That’s all great but how is the property market in Cape Town is it worth investing in or even staying in? The short answer is that if you own a house in Cape Town you could probably rent is for way more than a house in Brackenfell I mentioned in my earlier post. However if you’d like to stay there yourself it might aquire a certain understanding on the city, a city the almost never sleeps and has a wide variety of characters. From hipsters, rockers, students, beggars and much more your time there will be very interesting to say the least.

House prices in this city are not for the faint of heart. Prepare to by a lot over typical suburban house value and pay rent for even more. However in terms of investing this city never seems to slow down. It’s tourist attractions, a business hub and the capital of the Western Cape so you’ll never be short of buyers.

Houses for Sale in Brackenfell & My Plans for the Website…

imagesI’m not sure if I mentioned it before but I’ve got a background in real estate investment and I contemplating on changing the whole website into a real estate listing type of website. I’m not completely sure how I will do it but I’m sure that South Africa needs people investing in our country more than ever and this would be a great way to demonstrate some of the properties we have available.

For now I will be testing out this strategy and seeing what works and what doesn’t so please don’t stop reading if the posts aren’t all that great. I’m still dedicated to helping local businesses and promoting South Africa so from time to time I’ll throw in links to a few local real estate agents for them to get more enquiries. Maybe I’ll even ask them to pay for advertising space so that I can at least cover the costs of this blog.

For now I’d like to show you some rental properties and houses for sale in Brackenfell. I actually live in Cape Town but previously owned a house in Brackenfell which is very close to my heart. It’s a smaller suburb of Cape Town with a great community; schools and atmosphere will a lot less crime than Cape Town and a few minutes away from all the major attractions. See some of the houses for sale in Brackenfell below. Most of the houses are in ranges of R700 000 up to R2 000 000 depending on how big you go and in what part of Brackenfell you buy your house. Brackenfell also has a great rental market so it’s a great investment for someone looking to rent out a property…

For the love of South Africa

As a South African I’m well aware of the beauty and large number of problems we face as a nation on a daily basis. Some of the worse points include corruption, crime, poverty and much more. However we still have a lot to be proud of. We live in an amazing country surrounded by wild life, beautiful structures, long sandy beaches and a diverse culture. So it’s no wonder that tourists flock to our fair country every year.

In order to do my part as a South African I have decided to create a website dedicated to the wonderful locations in and around South Africa. From amazing game farms, to sandy beaches, to nature reserves I will be blogging about these real estate locations. I hope to encourage more South Africans to appreciate their country, to motivate tourists to come and visit our country and to invest in property in South Africa. I also want to help local businesses promote their services so you might find some useful tips for tourists here as well. Being a business owner myself and have invested in multiple real estate properties in South Africa I want to focus on South African real estate when posting about businesses.

For those that don’t know South Africa that well, see this amazing video that has been taking the internet by storms and tell our countries whole store in a matter of minutes. Thank you for visiting my proudly South African blog!
