Pretoria Gardens was established in 1903 along with the suburbs of Daspoort, Rietondale and Waterkloof. It was part of the progression of the larger Pretoria’s expansion plan.

Thus the suburb is well-established and is in a prime location with access roads, schools and amenities within easy access. The mixed property use means there is a huge opportunity for buy-to-let investors and tenants alike with apartments and sectional-title townhouse complexes being favoured. This is a stable and long term investment prospect as there will always be students seeking accommodation near to campuses.

The freehold homes are priced in line with market trends and prices are driven by demand. The architecture of the suburb is reminiscent of times when the suburb was established with some newer designed homes making up the suburb’s picture. The reasonably affordable homes are worth exploring with restoration and letting in mind as the returns on restored homes are rewarded with higher rental income and when restoration costs are played down against rental income the prospect seems more profitable.

The suburb is sustained by the industrial hubs of Booysens, Hermanstad and many people that are employed at P.MP (Pretoria Metal Pressing) a division of Armscor.
