Nestled in the heart of the Highveld, Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa. Comprising only 14% of the nation’s land area, the province contains the highly urbanized and expansive cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg.
Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.
Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.
The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.
With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.
Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.
As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.
The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.
The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.
MyRoof first introduced floor plans for every property for sale on our website in 2006. The thinking was simply: "Provide the best possible buying experience for people interested in buying property". The more information we could present to potential buyers, the easier it would be for our buyers to decide on a property to buy. It's true that a picture paints a thousand words, but, as many a property buyer would tell you, a picture can also mislead you. Today MyRoof combines high definition wide angle photographs with precision drafted floor plans. The direction of the photograph is indicated on the floor plan to enable the viewer to get a feel for the property. You can also easily see that the bedrooms have no windows or that a bedrooms only entrance is via another bedroom which is less than ideal. The floor plan also makes it easy to plan for any alterations you might want to make once you've purchased the property. We continually innovate to ensure our buyers have the best possible property buying experience. Make sure you use MyRoof when looking for properties for sale!
If you were to ask someone the reason they bought that specific house one of the answers will be, the property location. You may stand there perturbed at this revelation but the Property Location means different things for different people. This is where one’s property location is determined by basic needs and commitments. Young couples and single persons are more free which means less restrictions on their property location. Young couples with infants or pre-school children will need to be as close as possible to day-care centres and established families with children attending school will need to be close to schools. Property location can also be crucial for pensioners whom are in the position to own a property. For pensioners the property location may centre on the close proximity to medical care or easy access to retail outlets. So when looking for a property for sale take into account your own needs whether or not a properties location is suited to your needs.
Buying or renting a property is a question most of the consumers are faced with today. You may ask yourself, what is the best option for me at the present moment? And the advice here is, what does your financial situation allow, what are your needs or requirements and your future intentions and prospects. Some consumers may want the financial freedom of not being encumbered by a bond and for you renting will be the ideal solution. Here, as a tenant you should also be aware of the limitations which are at the discretion of the landlord. Renting is a short term approach to prepare the way for buying a home of your own as this allows a bit more disposable income to be saved for the financing of a home. Buying allows freedom in other avenues like the independence to do with your home as you please within the laws and bylaws of the local municipality. Buying a home brings a manner of stability that renting cannot always guarantee.
We use wide angle high definition photos to give you as much detail of every room of the property. Some properties have over 50 photos of the property for sale. Most of the photos are mapped on the floor plan and is also categorised.
