Ravenswood is a suburb of Boksburg which means like many other suburbs, on the then Rand, was established as a suburb catering for the mining and allied industries.

Located in Northern Boksburg means it is middle to upper-class suburb with a mixed property usage consisting of freestanding homes, apartments, townhouses, cluster homes and commercial property.

Like its sister suburbs, Ravenswood is a time capsule of architecture dating back to the 1900’s. This is of benefit to the suburb as it allows for a broader income group to consider the suburb as home.

When one takes a drive through the suburb, it is amazing to see the large number of new developments underway which bodes well for property owners and investors. The hurried pace of life on the East Rand lends itself to easy secure property usage like townhouses and apartments which are currently on the upper end of the scale, the prestigious market. This new development trend has brought with it a more informed consumer. One which almost demands modern architecture and of course with it; the flashy modern interior fittings and fixtures, all of which add up a pretty penny. This is a market segment showing the most sales movement and demand as it caters for young executives, first-time buyers in the exclusive market and investors in the rental market.

Freestanding homes and cluster homes are leaning more towards the prestigious end of the market with some ultra-modern architecture to sample.

Taking all this information into account one gets the idea this is a vibey expanding suburb with a kind of familial atmosphere.

All the right malls are nearby for nigh time entertainment and retail needs like the East Rand Mall, Greenstone Mall and Eastgate Shopping Centre which has had a massive revamp just for consumers like the Ravenswood consumers.

For established families there are a number of reputable established schools servicing the suburb such as St. Dominic's Catholic School for Girls, Hoerskool Dr. EG Jansen and St Michael’s Private School.
