Western Cape

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.

KwaZulu-Natal

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.

Eastern Cape

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.

Free State

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.

Mpumalanga

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.

Limpopo

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.

North West

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.

Northern Cape

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.

0% Commission *

MyRoof does not charge any commission to sell your property online. What we mean with no commission is exactly that – no fees are ever payable to us at any stage for the FREE listing option. As we do not charge commission, you can accept a lower offer but still get the same amount of money in your pocket. This will result in more interested buyers in your property.

Unlimited Photos *

You may upload as many photos as you wish onto our website. This will help you in selling your property faster. The more photos, the better idea a buyer gets of your property. Remember that photos can give the buyer a desire to own your property! You can also add the best things your property has to offer on the extra notes section. Buyers enjoy looking at the additional notes to make a decision on whether to view the property or not

Floor plans

All privately owned properties on our website have floor plans in the main centers. Just imagine if you were a buyer and could get an idea of the layout of a property even before visiting the home! Not only will the buyer get an idea of how big the property is, but he or she will also get the chance to view the sizes of the individual rooms and see where they might want to add or remove a wall. The buyer will also have the opportunity to compare the sizes and asking prices of different properties per square meter. Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.

Alerts *

On top of the unlimited photos and the added floor plan, we also offer you a large client base where alerts are sent out to buyers who are looking for a property like yours. Alerts are sent to prospective buyers who have indicated that they are interested in property in a specific area at a specific price range. Alerts will also be sent out should you lower your asking price or arrange a show day with us. This has been found to work well to communicate with many potential buyers at once. And it also keeps buyers interested in your property!

Many investors and home buyers are making use of auctions as a way of discovering the next great bargain. Bidders will find everything from entry level homes to vacant land and multi-million rand mansions available on auction. But, before you rush to start waving your bidding paddle in the air make sure to do your homework before buying a property on auction – be it at a physical auction or an online auction – as there are certain things any bidder should be aware of.

A helpful place to start is at an actual auction. Attend a few auctions and just observe and take notes of the process. It will also be helpful to have a look at upcoming auctions and decide whether you might be interested in any of the properties that are available. Then, once you have found properties that are appealing to you, ensure that you gain as much insight and information on these properties as possible. Find out about zoning, rates and taxes, and levies. When you are satisfied with this information, arrange to visit and view the property. This can be considered an essential part of the bidding process, as prospective bidders who have gained access to the property may find it easier to obtain financing than those who did not view the property. Once you have done this and decided to proceed make sure that your finances are in order. It is wise to decide on a maximum amount you would be willing to pay for a property and make sure that those funds – in whatever form - are readily available should you win the auction. At live auctions the auctioneer and seller may very well demand compensation should a deal fail because of your financing being unavailable.

Do also keep in mind that almost all auctioned properties are sold ‘voetstoots’ or ‘as is’, which means that any damages on the property are not the seller’s responsibility to fix, unless specifically defined in the contract or Conditions of Sale. This is another reason why viewing the property and getting as much information as possible is vital. The problem may be a simple one of a broken door handle or there may be cracks in the foundation – so make sure you are aware of any problems and consider the costs involved in any repairs that may be needed.

It is essential that all your personal documentation is in order. Should you attend and bid at a live auction you will have to provide positive identification in the form of a bar-coded ID book as well as proof of residence (this is according to the regulations set out by FICA). When bidding online it is necessary to make sure your registration is complete and accurate before the auction begins.

When bidding at an auction, it is essential that you stay focused, rational and unemotional about the property in question. Most people form an emotional attachment to a house before they have even started bidding on it, and as such they can end up over-bidding well beyond their means in the heightened adrenaline-rush of the auction environment.

The fact of the matter is that you can find great bargains by buying real estate on auction. As long as you do your homework, organise your financing and information efficiently and keep a cool perspective when bidding, it is likely that you will enjoy the experience and more likely than not find a great deal.
