Why do we choose to drive for days to reach a peaceful holiday destination?
The Vaal Dam is up the road and property values are set to sky-rocket. Suburbs to consider is both Vaalmarina and Deneysville. This is maybe because of the high fuel costs as a factor, as well as the increasing demand for property on the banks of the dam as recreational and holiday destination.
The Vaal Dam is in close proximity to Johannesburg, a mere 77km from the OR Tambo International Airport. This is ideal for a midweek break, while owning your own property means you do not have to pay exorbitant prices for a peaceful break.
The Vaal Dam could be a lot like the exclusive properties at Hartebeespoort Dam. It has become as exclusive as any lifestyle estate.
The property on the Vaal Dam will soon reach those levels and exclusivity too. Estate agents working in the area state that vacant stands are in high demand.
Stands on the Vaal Dam are selling at low prices and some reports indicate that 2000m2 stands are selling at low prices.
