 Raimond Lamprecht, principal of
the new Jawitz Properties franchise in Swellendam says there is good value to
be found in in the town but that most sellers are still having to accept offers
10% to 15% below their asking prices.
“There’s been interest
lately from foreigners and up-country buyers who are drawn to the area because
of its scenic beauty and its proximity to Cape Town and George. Families regard
it as a safe environment in which to raise children, and are attracted by the
reputable schools and the quality of life. And of course the fact that
Swellendam is the third oldest town in SA adds an historic flavour,“ he
Currently, growth is mostly
taking place at the lower end of the market, that is the R400 000 to R750 000
At the upper end, there has been
much less activity and some properties have been on the market for more than a
year. “Having said that, though, we have recently sold two up market
properties for R2,175m and R1,950m respectively in less than a month,“
Lamprecht notes.
In the middle sector of the
Swellendam market, buyers can expect to pay around R1m for a three to
four-bedroom house, and around R850 000 for a sectional title unit in a
retirement village.
Swellendam lies in the Overberg
halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route near George: an ideal crime free
and charming stop-over. The town is surrounded by fertile, softly undulating
farmland with the idyllic Breede River meandering through. In the background
protectively towers the Langeberg Mountains.
Swellendam is the third oldest
town in South Africa and was founded in 1746 by the governor of the Cape
Province Hendrik Swellengrebel and his wife Helena Ten Damme. The town is not
only famous for its youngberries, but also for its rich history and Cape Dutch
and Victorian buildings.The Drostdy museum, built in 1746, used to be the
governer’s seat, but nowadays houses a museum.
