Women are Owning the Property Market

Here are the need-to-knows if you plan on joining them.

In 2020, financial and research institutions reported that single women are dominating the property market and make up the biggest number of property owners in South Africa, surpassing the number of single men and couples investing in property right now. Whether you are looking into buying your very first home or considering property investment, here are a few things to consider.

Affordability

Affordability is not only about being able to qualify for and afford your bond repayments. It’s really being able to pay for your bond, live comfortably and increase your wealth by being able to save a portion of your income every month. By collaborating with major banks, Balwin Properties pioneered the Green Bond, making it affordable for South Africans to invest in their own homes and invest in quality, sustainable homes. Plus, through Balwin’s sustainable development efforts, you can also save on maintenance and utility costs. View our Green Collection to learn more.

A quick grocery run or getting to the gym for a post-work-workout shouldn’t be a schlep. Find a home conveniently located to work, central to highways, main roads and public transport routes as a bonus, and last but not least, close to schools and shopping centres. Balwin developments feature world-class Lifestyle Centres that have amazing sports and leisure facilities, wellness spas, restaurants as well as walkways and a dog park for the proud pet mom.

Safety

Security and peace of mind is priceless, so the best thing you can do for yourself is invest in a property located in a secure neighbourhood. Do your research and speak to current residents if possible. There are many affordable and safe suburbs with a home waiting just for you.
