With regard to location anything near enough to the arterial routes and the main CBD of Sandton like Morningside, Bryanston and Illovo are a sure bet in terms of a quick sale while property in Fourways and surrounds is also hot property.
Gerhard van der Linde, managing director of Seeff’s Pretoria East branch, said that suburbs in Pretoria East that are particularly in high demand include: Garsfontein, Moreleta Park, Faerie Glen, Brooklyn and the Lynnwoods. “When a property is priced correctly, well presented in a good condition, it should be sold within the first 21 days in the majority of cases.” Said van der Linde. In Centurion property in estates sell the quickest. Steve van Wyk, Seeff’s managing director in the area said a property of R1,1m recently sold in the Eco Park estate only one day after listing.
Nicolas Falck, a Seeff agent in Johannesburg South says in the South the fastest selling suburbs are by far Ormonde, Suideroord, Mondeor, Mulbarton and Glenvista. While in Bedfordview and Edenvale the suburbs that sell the quickest are Dowerglen and its extentions, Dunvegan and Greenstone Hill, said David Ingle, Seeff’s managing director for the area.
And finally, in Randburg, Roosevelt Park and Montgomery Park are two areas with extremely high demand and short supply and this resulted in quicker sales, said Chris Hejec, Seeff’s managing director in Randburg.
