The perpetual holiday atmosphere will appeal to the population at large. When one combines this atmosphere with the close proximity to white beaches and the Western Cape wine route then the idyllic picture should come to mind.
Strand in the Western Cape has been increasing in popularity as a residential and seaside holiday residential resort.
This is firstly evident by the increase in property values and then by the number of lifestyle and exclusive estates which have been developed in the town of Strand.
Strand by itself is a self-sustaining town with all the infrastructure of a medium sized town like a Central Business District, schools, malls and industrial hubs.
Strand Central is the ideal investors market for both the tourist and residential market with a high degree of demand for both instances yielding good income returns.
Strand is a mixed use residential town with commercial property, residential property which consists of freehold homes, apartments, townhouses and cluster homes. The market in Strand is driven by the same factors as other residential suburbs with the benefit of the additional use of property as either second holiday homes or holiday rental homes. In either respect property is in high demand which brings stability top the market making it a sound investment prospect.
For permanent residents there are a number of reputable schools to choose from and the proximity of the schools are dependent on proximity to the residential address. Here is a list of some schools in the general Strand Valsbaai High School, Loreto Primary School, International School of Helderberg and Hottentots-Holland High School.
The dual use of Strand means there is a vibrant nightlife with a slightly different culture to the towns in say Johannesburg which are a bit more laid back and tends towards the cosmopolitan lifestyle.
Strand is reasonable close to Cape Town and convenient along the major highways and minor roads which is a further appeal factor to Strand.
