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!

Until sold

We will keep your property on our website until the day it is sold – whether this will take a day or a year. MyRoof has hundreds of thousands of property buyers and send out tens of thousands of alerts daily to keep these buyers updated on new properties they might be interested in buying. Don’t worry if you’ve heard that selling your property is difficult because you are in our capable hands – this is what we do, all day, every day.

Security at Newmark

Safety – the dictionary defines safety as- ah there is no way I’m going to start a piece like that. If there’s anything that’s ever been over-done, its speeches that start with “the dictionary defines”. I swear the next time I’m at a wedding where the best man stands at the podium and opens with that line, I’m going to throw cake at him, and then vent my anger by going out to the driving range at Silver Lakes golf course and hitting a few – oh the wedding was at the country club, they do that now.

Anyway

We don’t need a dictionary to define safety for us. In fact, I don’t think it would be very helpful (especially the part where said best man is wiping red velvet off his tuxedo), for each of us have a different idea of what safety is, and how it manifests itself in our own, individual lives. For me, safety is not having the bungee cord snap when I jump – a philosophy that I doubt my mother would be too impressed with. But in making my point, I doubt that idea of safety extends beyond myself. For someone else, being safe might mean living in place where there exists nothing to fear, or to be anxious about. Or perhaps living in an area where there is cause for concern, but putting that concern at ease through the use of deterrents. For most of us, we fall into this latter category. For cities always have been, and always will be volatile places full of the good, the bad (okay I have to say it now) and the ugly. There exists no city in the world, from Rio to Rome, without the ills that cause the kind of anxiety that we so desperately attempt to escape from. However, these problems do have solutions, and in many cases they have indeed been realised. Take Pretoria for example. The capital city in the most developed country on the African Continent. A shining example of said realised solution, for as a city it certainly falls victim to the problems that plague major metropolitan regions, but it also sees the solution to those problems come to light in a magnificent way. Crime is a perfect example of those aspects of modern urban living that causes anxiety to take hold of us, for no one should ever have to experience the scourge that it is first-hand. However, the enclosed neighbourhoods of Pretoria’s eastern suburbs have certainly gone the distance in laying this anxiety to eternal rest through an accentuated security program that sees home owners feeling perfectly safe, strangely enough through a lack of concern for their safety – for they know that the properties for sale in Newmark Estate are amongst the most well-guarded in the capital city of this great nation, ills and all.

One cannot simply say that something is well-guarded and leave it to the imagination of the reader to explain just how said “thing” is well guarded. If somebody told me something was “well-guarded”, I’d immediately picture fire-breathing dragons encircling vault seven-hundred-and-thirteen, goblin to my left, a –half-giant to my right, a philosophers stone behind an enchanted door. I’m perfectly sure that the security personnel at Newmark would absolutely love to add dragons to their array of security measures already in place, but alas I believe it breaks the regulation of the possession of dangerous and magical creatures set out by the Ministry of Magic. But in continuing with a description I should have gotten to ages ago:

Newmark sees security achieved through a vast and varied number ways. Foremost are the most prominent feature of said ways – the walls that surround the estate. Perfectly impenetrable through any kind of brute force, subtlety in circumventing this particular feature would also meet its end, given that at the summit of the great climb to the top, an intruder would find high voltage electrified fencing, running the length of the perimeter without a fault in its lines. In moving into the enclosure itself, motion sensors are to be found about the grounds, meaning that any movement, no matter how slight, will be picked up and relayed to the guards on duty. CCTV cameras placed strategically within the enclosure means that not a blind spot exists, as everything is monitored from the on-sight guard station, and any suspicious activity is radioed to the roving patrols within the estate – the coordinated attack so silent that you would stunned that it ever took place. Finally, entrance to the estate is well monitored, so that no means of trickery or treachery would ever get past the iron black gates and security staff on duty, as all residents need tag in with a personalised key card, and all visitors are held to an “entrance by invitation only” standard, their vehicles inspected and their credentials verified before access is granted.  And I haven’t even mentioned the armed response unit that all within Newmark enjoy as part of an enhanced security package, on top of the aforementioned estate-wide safety features. Not to mention the incredible options available through the Amenities at Newmark - a bit of icing on the cake 

Yes, cities can be dangerous places. But in removing that aspect of fear, they can also be magical, as the residents of Newmark no doubt have discovered through the Amenities that dot the region. Our ideas of safety may all be different, yet the solution is one and the same, it has certainly been achieved in Newmark Estate.
