Van Riebeeckpark is a suburb of the Kempton Park municipality within Ekurhuleni. Most of the suburbs on this region of the east rand are centered around the industrial hubs of Isando, Olifantsfontein, Germiston and Jet Park which means most of the suburbs are in a general prime location.
The mixed property use of the suburb comprises freehold homes, sectional-title town houses and cluster homes which mean young and old small and large families will find a home to suit their needs and taste. Being a well-established middle class suburb does not mean the homes are all on the conventional scale of architecture. Many of the homes are newer in architectural design which further proves that the suburb is a stable investment prospect.
Property values, it can be said, are comparable to values in middle-class suburbs across Gauteng and thus being located on the East Rand has no negative bearing on the property values.
Demand is then for mostly for location and proximity to amenities like schools and malls. The other advantage of residing in Van Riebeeckpark is the proximity to the Gautrain Stations at either OR Tambo Airport or the Rhodesfield terminal meaning travel to suburbs like Sandton or Pretoria is more convenient than most other suburbs.
The other benefit to the suburb is that it is tranquil and the tree lined streets lend an air of wellness and community.
