The suburb is well-established and caters for the middle-class income group. Most of the Roodepoort suburbs are or rather were sustained largely by the mining of gold thus making them old suburbs. This is evident in the architecture of the suburb which is now mixed with old conventional and newer modern architecture.
Demand for the suburb is primarily driven by its proximity to industrial hubs of which there are quite a few catering for various industrial needs.
The mixed property use of the suburb comprises apartments, townhouse complexes and freehold homes. This factor means the suburb caters for a large market and price category.
Apartments will suite single persons and first time home buyers as well as buy-to-let investors with stable returns driven by the demand.
Freehold homes are priced equal to the market for similar suburb attributes and values increase similar to market trends thus dispelling any thoughts that the suburb is not worth considering as a residential address. There are bargains to be had when viewing what specific properties offer in terms of space in relation to market price. This would also then relate to a strong letting market in the freehold homes market.
Many of the homes in the suburb have large grounds which could be exploited to subdivide and redevelop into duets or even cluster homes which could drive property values.
There are a number of newly developed townhouse complexes which enjoy a strong demand which will also indicate that the market is a stable one for Witpoortjie. These newer developments also add to increasing the value of the general property market.
For those working in the Johannesburg CBD the many access roads are convenient and actually highlight the good location of the suburb.
