Latest property trends in Welgevonden Estate (Stellenbosch)

Category Market

As property professionals, one of the questions we get asked the most relates to the state of the property market at any given time.  Since our Stellenbosch Sales Office specialises in sales within Welgevonden Estate (and have done so for almost a decade), it is also the geographical area that interests our Stellenbosch office the most.

Meridian Realty has therefore embarked on publishing a Welgevonden Estate Market Snapshot report on a quarterly basis, in order to give existing and potential home owners in the Estate a summary of activity within the property market in this highly specialized area. 

We have received an overwhelming positive response since the publication of our first market snapshot in July 2011, and we will continue to strive to make this publication the benchmark with regards to property information in Welgevonden Estate going forward. 

CLICKE HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL REPORT.  This report deals with property prices and movements in Welgevonden Estate between 1 January 2009 and 31 October 2011.  The average sales price in 2009 was +/- R1345000.  In 2010 Welgevonden Estate experienced nominal growth of 5.16% in terms of the average sales price achieved, and as such in 2010 the average sales price grew to +/- R1415000.  Up to October 2011 (with available data at hand), the current trend remains to look positive.  Currently, the average sales price in Welgevonden Estate is hovering around R1565000, up 10.66% (in nominal terms) from 2010.  This data is however slightly skewed by the fact that there has been an increase of roughly 9m² in the average size of homes traded in 2011 versus 2010. 

It is also worthwhile to mention that Meridian Realty currently holds an +/- 30% market share (the highest of any agency) of properties traded in 2011 within Welgevonden Estate.  A phenomenal accomplishment considering that there are over 20 agencies active within the estate.  For more detailed information, download the full Welgevonden Market Snapshot Report here.
