The RealNet property group has expanded in the Western Cape property market by opening a new franchise office in Brackenfell.
Franchisee Michael Zackon, a seasoned estate agent with wide experience in property sales and launching new developments, says Brackenfell offers diverse property choices at affordable prices for home buyers and investors alike.
Prices range from R350 000 to more than R2 million, and the area remains popular among people working in surrounding areas such as Paarl, Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Cape Town, thanks to its proximity to national roads and a centrally located station for rail commuters.
Zackon says that new development is taking place rapidly and his office is already negotiating with developers to launch a series of new units that will come on to the market soon.
The new franchise covers the entire Brackenfell area, including suburbs such as Protea Village, Protea Heights, Ruwari, Morgenster, Morgenster Heights, Ferndale, Springbok Park, Eden Park, Vredekloof and De Tuin.
Prices of the bachelor apartments that are very popular in the area start at R350 000, while one-bedroom apartments in Ferndale sell well at just below R400 000.
Zackon says some very competitively priced properties are also available from time to time. A two-bedroom apartment in Ferndale recently sold at R385 000.
Older homes of approximately 200 square metres, on a 770 square metre stand sell at around R910 000, while three bedroom homes can still be had at just below R1 million. Upmarket homes in Vredekloof reach selling prices of around R2 million.
Zackon says it was an easy choice to join the RealNet group. "The group lives up to its national motto of 'We make it happen' and offers an incredible work platform that enables our property consultants to carry their offices with them wherever they are.”
He says this means they are available at any time to give clients the service they deserve from a top-class property brand.
RealNet Brackenfell has also committed itself to the community, and plans to rotate charity projects by allowing its sole mandate clients to select their charity of choice.
"We strongly believe in giving back to the community that gives us our foundation and we are committed to help improve the lives of those in need," he says.
