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.


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.


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.

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.

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.

Generally, most people’s biggest long-term debt will be their home loan. And while property prices may fluctuate randomly, you do have control over which home loan you choose to finance the purchase of your house. It is imperative that you select the loan with the options and benefits that suit your needs and your pocket the best.

In the current economic climate many people believe that they will not be able to afford to buy a house, but this is not necessarily true. With the lower house prices and increase in bank repossessed property, buyers may well be able to afford the home of their dreams if they are smart about financing their loan.

Every home buyer is unique. They earn different incomes, different levels of debt and different sized families and needs for that family.

First, you will need to decide through what channel you will most effectively be able to do your loan application. Loan consultants from your bank will personally process your application and you will have access to any of the bank’s financing information you may require. One could also apply online which is a quick and efficient method of applying for finance, but lacks the individual attention and information that may be needed at a later stage. Mortgage originators act as agents for multiple banks, and will submit your application to several banks to ensure you get the best deal. Buyers can contact MyRoof to help them apply for financing in this way. The trained bond consultants will guide you through the process and submit your application to Standard Bank, Absa and FNB.

Next, buyers will have to consider the capital amount they will be able to invest as well as determine how much financing they will qualify for. It is useful to determine your credit-worthiness as well as the loan amount you qualify for before you go house- hunting. It is also important to determine whether the financing institution will allow you to add the transfer and bond costs to the loan amount, since some lenders may require you to use a separate facility for this.

One of the most crucial factors to consider when deciding on a home loan is the interest rate payable on the loan amount. There are generally three types of interest options to choose from. A standard variable rate applies the lender’s fluctuating mortgage rate to your loan. Usually this is the same as the prime rate as determined by the Reserve Bank. A fixed interest rate is just that – a rate that remains fixed for a certain period of the loan, and may be slightly higher or lower than the current variable rate. A fixed interest rate affords buyer stability with regards to their monthly repayments as the amount remains unchanged. Some lenders may also be willing to negotiate the interest rate and may allow discounts.

When applying for financing buyers must also consider the bond registration costs. The institution providing your financing will appoint a conveyancing firm which will then register your bond, so it is important to obtain an estimate from the lender of what charges you can expect for this. The conveyancing fee will also include the Deed’s Office registration cost. Buyers can also expect to pay VAT on top of these conveyancing fees. Should you obtain your financing from a bank also remember that bank charges will be payable. Inspection and valuation charges will also form part of this cost and are usually paid to the conveyancer directly.

When choosing a home loan also consider the number and cost of the policies that the lender will require you to take out. All financial loan providers expect buyers to take out a short-term insurance policy – one that is usually renewable annually – in order to protect the property and building against unavoidable damage. This premium will be debited to your account monthly. Lenders often offer life policies that cover the owner during the bond’s life span. It is generally not compulsory to take out such a policy though. However, it is in your own best interest to have an independently provided life policy to cover the bond in the event of your death, and that will also continue after your bond has been paid off.

Browse for package deals. Quite often, loan providers will offer you package deals. For instance if you take out a home loan with them your payments and rates will be reduced provided you also sign up for a credit card or cheque account with them. South African banking systems are also phasing in All-In-One accounts, which have proved very successful in the Australian banking world. These accounts combine your home loan and cheque account in order to reduce interest payments while the cheque account retains any credit.

Loan providers often insist that monthly instalments are paid via debit order to simplify the process of payment. It is essential that you find out if there is a significant penalty for early repayment on the loan, as some lenders insist on extra interest being paid should you settle your loan account prematurely. It is essential that you are aware of these policies before you sign a loan agreement. Remember though that you are entitled to make payments at any point during the bond’s duration in order to reduce the outstanding debt amount. You will also not be liable for any penalties provided you don’t pay the total loan amount off within three years.

The best bonds are generally those that are flexible and can grow with you and your family, because the general bond repayment period is 20 years and your financial situation is likely to change throughout that time
