It is by now a known fact that the greater George is attracting scores of families to take up residency in this beautiful Garden Route town. The stats are the best yard stick by which this statement is measured on both sides of the scale where people are leaving town in the greater Jo’burg and other large cities. Naturally crime is a factor but families relocating to George also investigate the municipal service deliveries and state of the infrastructure and George meets all the criteria.
George offers a wide variety of suburbs that have a specific price class and then of course status. Rooi Rivier Rif is a suburb that has shown a lot of growth in sales and this is due to its prestigious status and most of the residents that have relocated from elsewhere are generally in the upper middle-class income groups and Rooi Rivier Rif offers the buyers that status and quality in homes.
The property usage in Rooi Rivier Rif consists mainly of freestanding homes and then there are a fair number of vacant stands which vary in value. The architecture is also not limited to any specific style which also attracts a large number of buyers. There are also some guest houses in the suburb which is a log-term investment for those that would like to venture into the entertainment or hospitality industry and still reside in a picturesque town.
Another factor which should be considered in the increasing value of property is the construction of new lifestyle, golf and security estates which appeal to local and international property owners.
As mentioned George and its suburbs offer a higher standard of living which is also a factor residents consider when choosing a school and the suburb offers a wide selection of schools namely York High School, George Suid Primary School and Kingsley Private School.
