Roodepoort and its suburbs like Florida Park were originally founded to serve the booming mining industry of yesteryear and have found a strong foothold in the property market since then as the various sectors of commerce have diversified into, commercial, retail and industrial sectors.
The middle-class status of the suburb means it enjoys a lot of attention in the market place with investors in the rental market, buyers and sellers which ensure a stable growth rate in property values.
The greater Roodepoort is claimed to be one of the most attractive suburbs in the region and this can be seen in the general condition of homes and the surrounding countryside with its rolling hills.
Property usage in the suburb consists of freehold homes with a more conventional and functional architecture and apartments which date back to the art deco era which is ideal for start-up families and single people and this segment is highly favored by investors in the rental market.
One of the major marketable assets of the suburb is its prime location and it could be mistaken for falling more within the north of Johannesburg due to its location. The suburb offers access to commercial and industrial hubs with connecting roads and freeways like Ontdekkers Road, Hendrik Potgieter Drive, and access to the N1 Western Bypass and also Albertina Sisulu Road.
Industrial hubs like Chamdor, Kya Sands and Stormill are equally within easy access.
There are a large selection of reputable schools servicing the region such as Hoerskool Florida, Florida Park High School and La Salle College.
There are more than enough retail outlets which service the suburb such as Clearwater Mall, Goldman Crossing Centre and of course access to Fourways Mall and Fourways Value Centre.
