The suburb is a mixed use suburb which comprises commercial and residential property. The residential properties are on the middle to upper-class end of the spectrum with freehold homes, clusters and town-houses. This opens up the market to some extent to the lower end of the middle class wanting to enter the market in an upper-class suburb like Randburg.
The other major benefits are of course the prime location which is viewed as a northern Johannesburg suburb, thus exclusive by proximity. The suburb is close to suburbs like Fourways, Sandton, Bryanston and Douglasdale. This has greatly influenced property values even with a part of the suburb dedicated to commercial and industrial use.
The commercial and industrial hub does not have a negative impact on the suburb, evident in the steady growth in residential property values, comparable to exclusive residential suburbs.
The central location of the suburb also means access roads are convenient and relates to minimized travel expenses.
The larger part of the commercial and industrial sector of the suburb is located east of the N1 freeway thus crime figures are no worse or better than neighbouring suburbs and across Gauteng.
The buy-to-let market is performing strong under the current economic conditions with a more than favorable degree of demand for rental property in the suburb.
The architecture of the suburb leans towards the modern end of the spectrum which also draws a younger property investor, young families, single people and larger families.
The other benefit of the suburbs locations is the proximity of schools and retail outlets and some of the more exclusive malls near to the suburb.
