What's really happening in the Welgevonden Property Market?

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 in Stellenbosch (and have done so for the past eight years), 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.

DOWNLOAD THE FULL WELGEVONDEN MARKET SNAPSHOT REPORT HERE.  This report deals with property prices and movements in Welgevonden Estate between 1 January 2009 and 31 July 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.  We are already half way through the year in 2011, and the current statistics available look promising.  At the moment, the average sales price in Welgevonden Estate is hovering around R1610000, up +/- 13.87% (in nominal terms) from 2010, although this data is also skewed by the fact that there has been a substantial increase in the average size of property traded between 2010 and 2011.  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.
