When you look at the breathtaking natural beauty of the Western Cape, it’s not really hard to imagine why the region has the highest valued property market in South Africa.
Reasons to invest
Cape Town and the Western Cape is home to some of South Africa’s most beautiful scenery, with a lifestyle to match. Not only does the Western Cape boast established industries like tourism, agriculture and manufacturing, but a tech-enabled shift in economic activities is enticing foreign firms and new investment groups to invest in the local economy. With four top universities and two globally recognised business schools, the province is a hub of innovation and talent.
Cape Town, Africa’s tech capital, and the World’s Leading Festival and Events Capital in 2019, continues to attract international business. With excellent infrastructure, global connectivity and the best-rated municipal services in the country, it is no wonder that companies like Amazon choose the Western Cape as their investment destination of choice.
The value of property in Cape Town’s city centre has soared from US$2,30 billion in 2017 to US$3,34 billion in 2018, with a total of property investments proposed, planned or under construction of US$957,76 million.
With everything that the Western Cape has to offer, from residential property to offices and co-working spaces, retail to hotels, major property developers see the economy bouncing back strongly from the Covid-19 pandemic.
