What are the important factors that will attract buyers to look in any given suburb to make their single largest investment of their lives?
Firstly and possibly most important is the stability of sales in the suburb as this is an indication that things are well in the suburb, then one should consider the general aesthetic appearance of the intended suburb, are the sidewalks neat and are the homes generally well-maintained, then one should consider the property usage, is it a well-balanced usage and if the general architecture appeals to you.
Cinderella which is a suburb of the greater Boksburg meets all this criteria and more. This familial suburb is tranquil, it is in a prime location, there are an innumerable amount of public schools servicing the suburb and the Median property graph shows a steady stable growth pattern. This last factor is however reliant on market and economic influences.
The general architecture in Cinderella is perfectly mixed which means a broad spectrum of buyers will find a home to cater for their taste and this would naturally also be a determinative factor in capital layout or purchase value. The diverse property usage in Cinderella consists of freestanding homes, townhouses and apartments which caters for a broad income spectrum. So, first-time buyers, start-up families and established families make up the demographic of the suburb.
One could categorize Cinderella as middle to middle upper-class.
The prime location of Cinderella springs form its proximity to commercial and industrial nodes surrounding the suburb as the suburb offers convenient access to industrial nodes in Dunswart, Boksburg, Wadeville, Germiston and Jet Park and commercial nodes in Rosebank, Sandton, Rivonia and Bryanston.
