As far as residential property goes Midrand must be one of the faster developing regions in Johannesburg. Some of the reasons the region is being developed is the fact that Midrand in general is a prime location as it is a major industrial and commercial hub halfway between Johannesburg and Pretoria and on the main highway connecting the north and south right down to Cape Town.
There are a large number of sectional-title developments that have been under construction and the end is not in sight as there are still vast tracts of land waiting to be developed.
Barbeque Downs is a highly sought after region in Midrand because properties fall within the middle to upper-class income bracket which thus offers that status of exclusivity.
The large number of estates means there is a section of properties with a varied property usage consisting of apartments, cluster homes, townhouses and freehold homes. Due to the age of many of the homes in the region being rather new translates to a modern architecture which could be seen as an extension of the young executive lifestyle or young families within the executive segment.
The rental market in Barbeque Downs is in high demand and this is in part due to the prime location and due to what the properties offer in terms of finishings and status. Thus it will be a strong investment market in years to come.
Access to other major commercial and industrial hubs are equally accessible along the major roads such as Allandale Road connecting to the N1, Woodmead Drive connecting to Woodmead and Buccleuch which also conveniently connects to Maxwell Drive to link up with Sunninghill, Fourways, Bryanston, Sandton and Rivonia.
The region’s infrastructure is well-established which means there are already schools that are reputable such as St Peters’ College, Lifestyle Montessori School and Halfway House Primary School.
There are a number of newly constructed exclusive malls catering for the region such as Kyalami On Main Shopping Centre, Crowthorne Shopping Centre and Midrand City Shopping Centre.
