The town of Brits lies in the heart of the North West Province’s bushveld. The town was established around 1906 when agriculture was the main source of sustainable living in the region.
The town was established north of the Magaliesberg which has very fertile soil and the weather conditions favoured farming of livestock too.
The region began to be populated and around 1906 a train station was built in Brits. This became the central point of origin for the town as crops were able to be sent to market at a lower cost.
In 1924 the town was officially founded on the farm Roode Kopjes which was located on the northern side of the railway line.
The town expanded and today the town has an industrial hub and a small central business district.
The town has the major benefit that it is situated so close to nature which creates a diversified property use in which it caters for the tourism industry in the form of guest houses lodges and Bed and Breakfasts. This in turn has a positive upward effect on the property values in the town.
Brits is also located close to the Hartebeespoort Dam which is the other tourist attraction. This in turn attracts possible property investors in the form of weekend getaway homes.
The town is well established and has schools catering for students. The schools catering for the residents are Academy for Christ, Bakwena High School, Bethany Primary School, Central Secondary School and Hoërskool Wagpos.
The region and the town has drawn major benefits from the exclusive estates which were constructed at Hartebeespoort Dam in having a stabilizing effect on the property market which is needed for the more remote towns like Brits.
