Most of these suburbs are sustained by the industrial sector thus they are located close to industrial hubs for convenience. This factor does not in any way detract from the general property values as can be seen from sales figures and a high degree of demand for homes in the suburb.
Property values are comparable to similar suburbs across Gauteng. Some of the homes, which started off as starter homes with 2 bedroom units, have been upgraded to cater for growing families. This means there is a niche market of affordability with huge prospects. There are still a number of properties with this feature to be had in the suburb.
The mixed property use of the suburb means a large market is catered for by first-time home buyers, established families and investors. For the buy-to-let market freehold homes, apartments and townhouses are equally sought after due to a high demand and stable returns with stable property value growth.
Most of the East Rand suburbs are self-sustaining in that schools and retail hubs are located close by for more convenience. Entertainment venues are also catered for so this is not something exclusively for exclusive or upmarket suburbs.
The other advantage is that there is still large tracts of land that is waiting to be developed. This should be viewed as a stable prospect in the future growth of the suburb once the ground becomes available for development.
