Ladismith offers value for money in the Klein Karoo with style

The Old Post OfficeAccording to Seeff the average prices of property in Ladismith, in the Klein Karoo, have more than doubled since 2012 with no sign of a slowdown.

Imelda Egan, an estate agent with Seeff Properties, said that there has been a significant increase in the demand for property in the Ladismith area, especially from the northern parts of the country, with properties never staying on the market for very long due to the value for money on offer here.

Adding to this value offering is the rich history many of the properties in Ladismith come with. “I recently sold the historical Old Post Office right on Route 62,” explained Egan. ““The Old Post Office was built in the 1800’s and was the first Post Office in Ladismith. Although the town around the Post Office changed considerably over the years, by some miracle this building remained untouched until it was renovated to a house in 1964 by its previous owners.”

It seems that Ladismith is full of unique and fascinating gems adding adventure to the local real estate market with three other properties currently being marketed by Egan in the Ladismith area.

“You will seldom find homes with such levels of original details carrying an affordable price tag,” said Egan. “That is why people are attracted to Ladismith. It offers residents the opportunity to live in a home from a bygone era at only a fraction of the price that you would pay for a modern home in the city. Ladismith offers an uncomplicated life in a clean and secure environment.”
