The sun, sea and white beaches of Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape is a favoured holiday destination but also a residential town.
In 2011 the Fountains Mall and the neighbouring Business Park has seen the CBD relocate most of the commercial companies to this node.
The mall development was riding on the back of research that indicated a growing town and this is evident by the growth in new homes and suburbs in Jeffreys Bay along with new lifestyle and eco estates which are driven by the proximity of the town to the many nature reserves like the Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve close to the town.
The Mentorskraal Country Estate, Fountains Estate and the Wavecrest Security Estate are tow relatively new estates in Jeffreys Bay and the fact that these developments have been initialised and an ever increasing demand for more homes in estates is a good indication that the property market in Jeffreys Bay is stable. The newer architecture has also increased the value of property outside the estates to some degree.
In the general suburb of Jeffreys Bay properties can be classified as middle-income homes and prestigious homes with some serving a dual purpose as second holiday homes or residential homes.
The median property performance charts are also a good barometer and for Jeffreys Bay it is further indicative that the market is buoyant.
The mixed property usage in the town consists of freehold homes, townhouses and apartments. The latter is the ideal lock-up-and-go property for small families with a smaller budget to own a holiday home in the town.
This well-established town has of course access to amenities like schools. Here is a list of some of the schools in the town; Victory Christian School, Jeffreys Bay Primary School and Pellsrus Primary School.
