Luxury home investments in Franschhoek – a growing wealth area
Wise home buyers are always on the lookout for location, location and location, so much so that the repeated use of the word “location” has become the mantra of all prospective purchasers worldwide, irrespective of whether they’re on the hunt for a modest home that represents a sound investment, or a luxury dwelling.
Why the emphasis on location?
Identifying a good location is so much more important than merely having a good or prestigious home address that may be indicative of one’s status, wealth and prospects. There are numerous other factors that should be considered and/or researched, especially if your investment is sizeable, as it will be in the luxury sector and a growing wealth area.
Franschhoek has been identified as a growing wealth area, so it’s almost difficult to go wrong here, but nevertheless, there are still essential aspects to be taken into account. Homes in a good neighbourhood that are situated within a comfortable distance from schools, shops, and medical, recreational, entertainment, sports or leisure facilities have a wider appeal, which is an important factor for future investment value.
Reasonable proximity to work opportunities and/or accessible road infrastructure to get to work with ease is also important. You should check that other homes in the neighbourhood are of similar standard when compared with the property in which you are interested. View the recent sales records of similar (luxury) homes in the same and immediately surrounding areas. These records provide a sound indication of whether your proposed luxury home’s price is in keeping with counterparts’ actual, recently achieved prices – invaluable if you’re new to an area like Franschhoek.
Scenic locations with special or unique features are winners, both from lifestyle and investment points of view and perspectives. Homes in towns, regions or areas that are popular with holidaymakers and tourists are bound to retain and grow their investment value along with their appeal to visitors, who spend money in the area, which invariably continues to improve in all the important ways.
These are only some of the aspects that should be taken into account in Franschhoek and other regions that feature luxury homes, but it isn’t necessary for you to undertake all this research under your own steam – not if you engage the services of Fine & Country South Africa, one of this country’s premier estate agencies.
