Property options for every pocket in Pretoria’s Centurion

03 Sep 2018

Centurion property is extremely popular, not only because the area is conveniently situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria, but also because of the wide variety of property options and price ranges to meet the needs of different buyers.

Centurion consists of approximately 40 suburbs and includes five golf estates, around forty upmarket security estates, smallholdings and numerous security complexes, says Steve van Wyk, Seeff’s MD in Centurion.

“There is a broad selection of property and real estate available in Centurion to satisfy all buyers. These range from freestanding houses, townhouses, duets and apartments to security estates and cluster developments. There are also a number of agricultural holdings.”

Centurion’s strategic position means that those investing in property enjoy an excellent infrastructure - good schools, shopping malls, restaurants, bars, hospitals, the Gautrain station, entertainment and sporting facilities are all within easy reach.

This apartment in Rooihuiskraal North, Centurion, offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a garage. It is selling for R1.08 million - click here to view.

“The area also has a number of business nodes including, the Samrand Business Park, Highveld Business Park and Sunderland Ridge industrial area,” says Van Wyk.

He continues that you can’t go wrong with property investment in the fairly new areas of Highveld and Rooihuiskraal North.

“Both these suburbs offer great returns, have low crime rates, access to highways, good schools and amenities, and are predicted to become even more sought after in future.”

Van Wyk says in areas like Eco Park in Highveld and Heuwelsig Estate in Monavoni, properties sell within six weeks (42 days) of listing when they are priced correctly. Property in both these areas ranges between R800 000 and R2.5 million.

This family home in Heuwelsig Estate, Centurion, offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage. It is on the market for R2.695 million - click here to view.

“The reason property here sells in half the time than in the rest of Gauteng includes the fact that these suburbs offer lock-up and go units that are extremely sought after, fantastic value for money and are located in close proximity to highways, schools and all amenities.”

He says any area close to the Gautrain station is also a great property investment.

“First-time home buyers in Centurion can find lock-up and go units in newish complexes that are located close to important roads and the Gautrain station for between R700 000 to R1.5 million.”

Areas like Celtisdal, Eco Park Estate, Heuwelsig Estate and Kosmosdal are attractive options to first-time home buyers, and are more affordable than the older areas.

This two bedroom, one bathroom apartment in Die Hoewes, Centurion, offers a garage and access to a communal pool. It is selling for R7.98 million - click here to view.

Die Hoewes is also popular and offers around 6 300 sectional title units ranging in price from a very affordable R545 000 to about R2.4 million, with an average price of R750 000.

“Approximately 500 units are sold in Die Hoewes annually, and 38% of the buyers are under the age of 35 years. The appeal to first-time buyers includes affordability, and lock-up and go units close to major highways, the Gautrain station and all facilities in Centurion,” says Van Wyk.

He adds that about 30% of property in Centurion is located in 60 security estates, and that the demand for estate living here is exceptionally high because of the security factor, better resale value in general and the walking path areas, play areas, schools, pools, restaurants and so forth many estates have to offer.

“While there are very expensive estates like Cornwall Hill where homes are priced up to R30 million, there are options in every price range, and homes in some estates are priced from as low as R1.5 million.”

This three bedroom, two bathroom home in Highveld, Centurion, offers a built-in braai and patio. It is selling for R2.395 million - click here to view.

Van Wyk says the rental market in Centurion is very strong across all bands with both private and corporate rentals.

He says the most popular price range is from R5 000 to about R8 000 for a one or two bedroom apartment. In this price range a number of developers have built multi-storeyed blocks of apartments, and to get the units let they are offering huge discounts and various incentives.

“Outside of this price range, rentals are also strong and increases average out at about 5.5%. There has been a big demand for rental accommodation as it has become more difficult to qualify for a bond.”

Van Wyk says approximately 6 000 property sales occur in Centurion every year.

“This is down from the 9 000 sales at the peak a few years ago. Until the economy picks up and there is certainty around expropriation, sales will continue to be sluggish.”
