For Investment Property enthusiasts, residential golf estates offer a bounty of positives: safety and security for your family, beautifully maintained fairways only a stone’s throw away from your home, not to mention excellent value for money and return on investment. As golf continues to grow in popularity in South Africa, property on these estates is increasingly a covetable asset.

Despite many so-called experts forecasting that the Investment Property market in South Africa would bottom out, it continues to show exceptional growth.  And no-where is this more evident that in what Investment Property seekers call Golf Estate Living.

If you’re looking for a home beside a sweeping fairway, there are many estates to from which to pick and choose: from the well established to those still in the planning stages. Ask yourself what exactly it is you want and what amenities are available in the area because in South Africa property on residential estates has a variety of special features and lifestyle offerings. From relaxation and beauty treatments at spas and wellness centres to boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants and even coffee shops and clothing stores. 

It is also worthwhile to consider many of the attractions in the vicinity as this will certainly help with resale value. For instance, one of the country’s most famous estates, which also incidentally received the highest environmental accreditation of any lifestyle estate, is only a short distance from Hermanus, the best whale-watching site in the Cape – a sublime and powerful drawcard for nature lovers.

If you need to keep family top of mind, schools, churches, shopping centres, hospitals and other amenities in the area will be a deciding factor. Something else to bear in mind is the strict architectural and building guidelines that the majority of these estates employ. It is important to investigate the cost of building according to these guidelines.

Not only is this a “must have” for many South Africans, it is high on the Investment Property list for buyers from around the world.  The international interest in golf estate living has grown exponentially in leaps and bounds. All year-round golf, wildlife, great value and excellent service are elements that put South Africa at the top of the Investment Property list.

In South Africa property on each and every residential golf estate has a unique selling point and at Property On Course, you can view the one-of-a-kind lifestyle offerings and get in touch with the relevant accredited estate agents.

Things you should consider when searching for the right investment property

Neighborhood:

The quality of the neighborhood in which you buy will influence both the types of tenants you attract and how often you face vacancies. For example, if you buy in a neighborhood near a university, the chances are that your pool of potential tenants will be mainly made up of students and that you will face vacancies on a fairly regular basis (during summer, when students tend to return back home).

Property Taxes:

Property taxes are not standard across the board and, as an investor planning to make money from rent, you want to be aware of how much you will be losing to taxes. High property taxes may not always be a bad thing if the neighborhood is an excellent place for long-term tenants, but the two do not necessarily go hand in hand. The town's assessment office will have all the tax information on file or you can talk to homeowners within the community.

Crime:

No one wants to live next door to a hot spot for criminal activity. Go to the police or the public library for accurate crime statistics for various neighborhoods, rather than asking the homeowner who is hoping to sell the house to you. Items to look for are vandalism rates, serious crimes, petty crimes and recent activity (growth or slow down). You might also want to ask about the frequency of police presence in your neighborhood.

Amenities:

Check the potential neighborhood for current or projected parks, malls, gyms, movie theaters, public transport hubs and all the other perks that attract renters. Cities, and sometimes even particular areas of a city, have loads of promotional literature that will give you an idea of where the best blend of public amenities and private property can be found.
