There is a growing awareness in Cape property circles that Simon’s Town is an area with huge potential, says Rawson Properties' Fish Hoek co-franchisees, Leon Bosman and Cathy Baker.
This has already been tapped into by certain overseas and Gauteng property buyers alike - but it is now beginning to dawn on Cape investors that the town and nearby precincts in the Froggy Pond and Murdoch Valley and Millers Point area are likely to become increasingly sought after. The setting, history and architecture of Simon's Town appeal to a wide market of investors and buyers.
The Rawson Properties' Fish Hoek franchisees have just opened an office in Simon’s Town. This is run by Arlette Smith, an agent with 16 years' property experience, and her new recruit, Melanie Levenson.
Asked to quantify the size of the Simon’s Town market, Bosman said that in 2009 - R157 031 000 worth of sales were made there and the area has not quantified the effect of the successful soccer World Cup. This, said Bosman, is likely to be “big” because so many visitors came to the town.
Rawson Properties' new Simon’s Town office is in the Main Road in the Broadwalk Centre, which overlooks the yacht basin and flanks Jubilee Square.
