Now is the ideal time to buy luxury houses in South Africa
In many ways, South Africa is a paradise for those who choose to live here. The country is renowned for its breathtaking beauty – from its sun-drenched coasts, to its wonderful winelands, dramatic mountain ranges, and expansive grasslands. Mild weather means a great time all year round, and SA’s cosmopolitan cities are abuzz with culture and entertainment. With its thriving cities, leafy suburbs, and picturesque countryside, there is certainly no shortage of luxury houses to satisfy even the most discerning buyer.
Coastal and waterside properties
With a coastline that stretches out on three sides of the country, South Africa offers many varied coastal residential opportunities. The Atlantic Seaboard is one of the most popular residential areas for luxury houses, with popular suburbs such as Llandudno, Camps Bay, and Bantry Bay leading the charge. Or, maybe you prefer a slightly more tropical environment. North of Durban, you will find the ever-popular Umhlanga and Richards Bay. On the magical South Coast, you will discover the enchanting Garden Route, with numerous luxury houses and estates that are unmatched in their splendour and charm. Even the interior of the country offers fabulous waterside properties next to rivers, dams, and wetlands, like the affluent areas around Hartbeespoort Dam and along the Vaal River.
Golf estate living
South Africans love their sport, and golfing is no exception. Boasting a number of top international players, it is no wonder that South Africa is home to a large selection of excellent golf courses. Following international trends, more and more residential security estates are being established on golf estates, allowing you to have your choice of luxury houses on a course of your choice.
Johannesburg is also known as the City of Gold, and for good reason. This vibrant and bustling city is the economic heart of the country and the largest business hub in Africa. Here, cultures connect in a melting pot of great food, entertainment, and arts. And when the sun goes down, the night comes alive… Choose your flavour: there are plenty of sprawling luxury houses available in green suburbs such as Hyde Park, or you can find yourself right in the heart of the city with a penthouse apartment in Sandton.
Cape Town certainly needs no introduction. Frequently voted as one of the most popular destinations and beautiful cities in the world, this city is home to some of the most impressive luxury houses in the country. And, just a couple of minutes out of town will land you right in one of the best wine districts in the world.
The time is now
What’s more, for those in the market for luxury houses, now is the perfect time to find valuable opportunities. In many of the most sought-after suburbs and developments in South Africa, property prices are currently either static or actually declining slightly after years of very robust growth. This is great news for buyers. If you are savvy enough and partnered with the right estate agent, you can pick up some excellent deals on luxury houses.
Furthermore, the South African exchange rate makes this an excellent investment opportunity for many foreign buyers. Who would not want a luxurious piece of this magnificently beautiful and diverse country?
