Northern Suburbs property sales surge
Brackenfell’s central location with easy, quick access to the N1 and R300 is contributing to its growing popularity, as seen in a recent residential property sales surge.
Rowan Alexander, director of Alexander Swart Property, said that in a short space of time Brackenfell has become a true family suburb in which the ratio of older people and children to young couples and middle-aged residents is far higher than in most Cape Town living areas.
The Brackenfell estate agency is expanding into other Cape Town suburbs following the opening of an office in Durbanville, which saw the listing of 24 new properties for sale, of which 10 were sold within the first four months. These, at an average 97% of the asking price.
They are continually on the lookout for staff – either experienced agents or rookies prepared to undergo the thorough training period, which the agency insists upon.
The agency employs a separate team to find stock, which means that although agents are still encouraged to bring in stock, they will almost always have homes to sell.
