A fervent desire to reduce both monthly costs and traffic-congested travel times while residing in conveniently situated nodes has given rise to the ongoing success of the live-work-play lifestyle in South Africa.

Well positioned in close proximity to the City of Ekurhuleni’s Aerotropolis, which is being developed around OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg East has emerged into the spotlight as a strategically well-positioned location for home owners and businesses alike.

Bellevue East, located on the border of the upmarket suburbs of Observatory and Upper Houghton, emerged as one of the top performing suburbs in Johannesburg in terms of property price growth.

Established 26 years ago, Silver Lakes Golf and Wildlife Estate, emerged as one of the top performing suburbs in Pretoria, according to Lightstone data.

With sales of R150 million to date, only 52 out of the total of 143 apartments are still available for purchase in the brand new, designer apartment development, Le Boulevard, in the heart of uMhlanga on the rapidly expanding KwaZulu-Natal North Coast, according to Carol Reynolds.

Globally, people are prepared to pay a premium for properties in suburbs that have good schools, says Gareth Bailey, Pam Golding Properties area principal for Durban Coastal.

The year began with renewed confidence across all sectors of the financial and property markets.

As our roads seem to get busier every year, people are seeking ways of reducing their commute times to improve their quality of life.

Surrounded by mountains and situated at the foot of the Long Tom Pass in Mpumalanga, Lydenburg, now also known as Mashishing, is rapidly becoming a business hub servicing the surrounding communities and mining interests as far afield as Pilgrim’s Rest, Steelpoort, Burgersort, Ohrigstad and Rietfontein.

Foreigners - including South Africans, wanting to acquire freedom of movement for themselves and their families to study, work and live anywhere in the European Union, are increasingly turning to Portugal to acquire EU citizenship, says Chris Immelman, MD of Pam Golding International.
