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!

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.

This week we're starting a brand new weekly blog on MyRoof.co.za called: "Private Property of the Week" What we're intending to do is to have a look at the 10 properties that were viewed most frequently during that specific week and doing an analysis on one of them. If you are interested in which properties are viewed most often, which properties were added most recently, which properties are suitable for investors, or newly weds, or pensioners etc, you need to discover the LIFESTYLE SEARCH option which is shown below: MyBuying>LifestyleSearch


When clicking on the Lifestyle Search button you'll be presented with a search menu which helps you search for property with a difference. Using the Lifestyle Search function gives a whole new dimension to searching for property with a wide array of useful features. Feel free to select more than one option, remembering that the more options you select, the less results will be generated. A sample of the Lifestyle Search function is shown below:


But enough about what "private property of the week" is about, let's get to the actual most viewed properties for the week ending 21 January 2009.

There are a couple of things which is quite interesting about this list. Firstly, it's very interesting that the property which attracted the most interest in this week was a piece of land in Somerset West in the Western Cape. The erf is quite large (and so is the asking price), but luckily for the seller it seems that property and land in the Western Cape is still in high demand, especially by foreigners. There are two pieces of land for sale privately in the top ten for this week, both in the Western Cape - looks like there are still buyers looking for vacant land if you have it in the right area!

The property I'd like to delve into slightly deeper this week (I'll do a more thorough investigation on next weeks property of the week) is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in Pierre van Ryneveld which is for sale for R900 000,00. Pierre van Ryneveld lies on the eastern border of Centurion and resides right next to Monument park and the Waterkloof air force base. It has direct access to the R21 highway leading to Pretoria city center if you're heading North and to OR Tambo international airport if you're heading South. You can access the N1 highway via the R21 or via Rigel off ramp. This is a great neighborhood with lots of green areas on all sides as well as the brand new Irene mall which has proven to be a heaven for kids with it's water feature play area. But let's get to this house MR08316:

The average house in Centurion East that is listed for sale on MyRoof.co.za is priced at R1 473 151,51

The average house in Centurion East that is listed as sold on MyRoof.co.za is priced at R1 495 863.63

(which is higher than the properties not sold - this figure is usually lower than the houses that are still for sale. We don't find this unbelievable as the property market is in a slump at the moment and people are willing to sell their properties for less.) The average is much higher than this property because we find a lot of upmarket estates in this area like Irene Farm Villages where properties are very expensive. Properties currently take an average of 124 days to sell in this area, however MR12219 was sold in 49 days and yet offers more or less the same features and look round about the same general age.

From the floor plan of MR08316 we can see that this house was built in the classic 3 bedroom 2 living area style of the 70's and 80's on a big erf and there is definitely room for expansion if needs be. All bedrooms as well as the living room faces north which is great. The kitchen seems to be newly refurbished with nice wooden cabinets but is not open plan, however the western wall could be easily removed. I'd personally phone the painter first to change the exterior colour, but all in all the area and price seems fair. I'm giving this property a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
