Why do people pay so much to stay on the Atlantic Seaboard?

What is the challenge when managing sellers expectations?

  • Convincing sellers that the playing fields have changed.
  • Foreign buyers are few and local buyers are inclined to invest offshore given the political and economic insecurity at present.
  • Some sellers are still caught up in the pre-2017 market, semigration of Johannesburg buyers has all but dried up.
  • Buyers don’t need to buy, but a value proposition needs to entice Buyers.

How do buyers take advantage of the current market conditions?

  • A good buy in this difficult market requires a low level of risk.
  • Buying in the Atlantic Seaboard offers a low risk opportunity in terms of real estate by virtue of the location and surrounding infrastructure.
  • Buy with a long term mindset, one which sets out to hold the property for an extended time.
  • Don’t think speculatively. Buyers must see a value proposition and buy well.
