This suburb is in a prime location which is roughly half way between Johannesburg and Pretoria which means it can be a huge cost saving in travel expenses.
The suburb can be seen as middle to upper-class suburb with various types of property. This means the price range for new sectional-title townhouses and apartments are from the R550 mark to round the R880 mark and freehold homes from R1.2 mil and above.
This mixed property use is still under development with loads of vacant land up for grabs at reasonable prices. The demand for property in the suburb stems mainly from its location in relation to suburbs like Midrand which is a major industrial and commercial hub and also the proximity of the suburbs to freeways like the N3 Highway, Old Pretoria Main Road and the Bucchleuch interchange which leads east west south and north.
The other benefit is the proximity of the Gautrain station which further highlights the ideal location of the suburb.
The developments taking place in the suburb is a positive indicator as to demand and future growth of the suburb.
All the important amenities like schools and malls are close by to make them convenient to reach.
