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.

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.

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.

Part One

The process involved in registering a bond or property transfer is usually straightforward and simple. Occasionally, however, the progression can be delayed by additional hurdles that arise when dealing with a deceased or mandated estate. The flow of the procedure remains the same in essence in these cases, with perhaps an added step or two. This guide serves to outline the basics of a normal purchase and property transfer.

Buying property is a huge commitment and a significant investment – and it is essential that buyers are aware not only of the costs involved, but of the processes that will be followed in order to end up with a bond or property registered in their name.

When you find a property that meets your requirements and is affordable for you, make sure to gain as much information about the property as possible before advancing. This means finding out about levies or rates and taxes, building regulations and so forth. There will of course be details specific to your own contract and procedure, but there are some basic factors that will remain consistent when purchasing a house.

  1. The Offer To Purchase

Once you have decided on a property that you would like to make an offer on, you will receive an Offer to Purchase. This may be a brief, rudimentary document that will be replaced by a more comprehensive contract at a later stage should the seller accept the offer you make.

The Offer to Purchase or OTP will include the purchase price as well as an indication of how you will be paying, as well as the deposit amount that is required. In other words, you will be expected to specify whether you will be obtaining bond financing from a bank, whether it is subject to you selling your current home or if you will be using cash. The seller may want to implement a few small changes to the OTP before signing their acceptance of the offer. Once these changes have been made you, the buyer, will be expected to sign the contract.

  1. The Bond Originator

Once the seller has accepted the offer by signing acceptance of the OTP, the bond originator will then collect all necessary documentation from you as the buyer and apply for financing on your behalf – should you require it. This is the essential function of the bond originator in the process of buying property when a mortgage bond is needed. The bank that awards the financing will pay the bond originator and as such the buyer is not responsible for these costs.

The documents you will require for financing when you earn a salary are:

  • Payslips. Your income will have to be verified according to your bank account.
  • Your last three or six months bank statements should your income be inconsistent.
  • A comprehensive statement of your income and expenses signed by you.
  • A detailed statement of your assets and debts.
  • Your green South African identity book. Foreign applicants will need to provide proof of residence and work permits.
  • Your rental contract in respect of rental income that will be used to determine your affordability evaluation.

Self-employed applicants will need to provide:

  • Financials covering a two year trade period or current management statements.
  • An auditor’s letter confirming your personal income.
  • A projection of cash-flow for the forthcoming year.
  • A detailed statement of your personal assets and debts.
  • Personal as well as business bank statements of the last six to twelve months, depending on the bank to which the application is made.
  • Your IT34 form.
  • The Company, CC or Trust’s legal documentation.
  • Green South African identity documents of all members, directors or trustees.
