The first few images that come to mind when one takes a leisurely drive through the suburb of Newclare are mining, robust homes constructed undermining specifications, meaning robust homes and a rich story saved up in the architectural styles dating from the gold rush era and modern architecture.
Suburbs like Coronationville and Brixton should evoke a cultural influence tracing back to Britain and Ireland.
From 2018 to 2019 the property values have plateaued and have gained momentum from 2020 to indicate a growth rate that indicates stability and buyer confidence. These are important factors to consider as families tend to remain in the suburb until past retirement age and then the pensioners retire to sectional-title apartments and townhouses and their growing families inherit the homes or purchase the homes from parents. So family homes remain in the family for consecutive generations. New buyers in the suburb are not left empty-handed or fighting for scraps, there are numerous freehold homes, apartments and townhouses that meet very criteria like size, budget, architecture, fittings and lifestyle features.
Correctly priced properties do not remain on the market until they become overexposed and lose value. That is the high degree of demand for homes in the suburb that exists currently. The average value is around R650 000.
There are scores of schools serving the suburb namely Newclare Primary School, Everest Primary School (where children do soar to new heights), WR Goliath Primary Schools and R W Fick Secondary Schools.
All the major commercial and industrial precincts are within easy access of the suburb along roads namely Price Street, Albertina Sisulu Road and the N1 Western Bypass that goes west, northeast and south connecting to the West Rand, East Rand and Central Johannesburg to Rivonia, Bryanston, Hyde Park and Fourways.
