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.

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. Our system has been proven to work by many satisfied sellers like you – all of this at no cost to you!

Marketing *

This week I'd like to spend some time discussing the property of the week, which is a 3 bedroom house in Montana that is to let for R6000 per month. If you're not sure what the "Private Property of the Week" category is about, feel free to have a look at last weeks private property of the week blog post to get an idea of how we decide which property to evaluate. The post also explains how to use MyRoof.co.za's Lifestyle Property Search function to view the property of the week for a certain area etc.

But before we begin, as always (or as last week to be more precise) here is the list of most viewed properties for the week ending 28 January 2009:

Number Region Sale Price Letting Price Type
MR60271 Capetown - West Coast 765000 n/a House
MR13312 Gauteng - South East 455000 n/a Simplex
MR21255 Gauteng - West 550000 n/a Simplex
MR24316 Pretoria - North n/a 6000 House
MR20316 WCape - South & Garden Route n/a 4900 House
MR17280 Capetown - Northern Suburbs 3500000 n/a House
MR20307 Capetown - Southern Suburbs 1200000 n/a House
MR37291 Pretoria - East 680000 n/a House
MR59270 Johannesburg - Central West 650000 n/a House
MR04287 WCape - South & Garden Route 550000 n/a Land

It's interesting to note that half of th properties in this list were also in the list last week, but we've got a new number one. It's a lovely 2 bedroom cottage in Sunningdale in Cape town. The owner, Allan has listened to our advice and added some great owner notes which has helped pull the views. The property is also reasonably priced for a house in this area and I expect Allan to find a buyer quickly.

Getting back to our property of the week, a 3 bedroom house for sale in Montana. The reason I chose this house is to demonstrate a few MyRoof.co.za features you might not be familiar with. You can let your property for free on MyRoof.co.za in three simple steps as Corrie, the owner of this house did. The first two steps are basically to list your property in the letting section as demonstrated below:


The last step would be to add photos of your rental property by clicking on the link provided at the end of step 2. You can also alternatively add owner notes to your property for rent to add additional information about the property that is not visible on the photos. Take note that rental properties do not include floor plans as properties for sale do.

Getting back to the property, it's a pity that Corrie did not include more photos or add a owners notes as this would have given a possible buyer a better idea of what to expect. What we can see from the pictures included is that this is quite a new property with a very beautiful garden that is well maintained. Montana is a lovely area in the North of Pretoria with temperatures a degree or two warmer than properties south of the mountain. With a little more trouble I'm sure Corrie will find him a tenant willing to pay R6000 which I believe is reasonable yet at the upper scale of the market. This price will make a lot more sense if this property is in one of the estates located in the Montana area, but unfortunately we don't have this information.

Bottom line: Feel free to list your property to let on MyRoof.co.za for free and be sure to get a lot of views and a tenant, but be sure to add as much information as possible to make the decision to rent your property easy for a possible tenant.
