Strandfontein, located between Mitchells Plain and Muizenberg, is fast becoming a sought-after seaside location. Due to the fact that the suburb has easy access to all amenities and its proximity to the famous Strandfontein Beach and tidal pool, young and old are increasingly flocking to the area.
“Strandfontein offers exceptional value for money,” said Theo Rainers, Rawson Property Group franchisee. “It’s more affordable than many areas in the Cape Flats, like Grassy Park, as well as other suburbs like Ottery and Muizenberg.”
According to Rainers, the developing sense of community in the area bodes well for home owners and buy-to-let investors. He noticed an increase in renovations instead of owners opting to sell and move. “This kind of rejuvenation of properties is great to see,” he said. “It adds value to the area as a whole, and indicates a happy community putting down long-term roots. It also puts the owner in a good position for future sales if and when they do decide to move on.”
Rainers said that the Strandfontein rental market is vibrant, with demand exceeding available stock, especially in popular suburbs such as Old Strandfontein and Wavecrest. With ample vacant land available Rainers believes that development is bound to take place, boding well for the discerning investor.
