Lifestyle and Investment Opportunities of the Umhlanga-North Coast Corridor

Are you looking to expand your Real Estate investment portfolio, buying your dream forest-beach mansion, or are you looking for a seaside holiday property? With all eyes on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal—having seen a 25% growth within the last decade, the Ballito-Umhlanga corridor is where you should be shopping.

While Sandton and Cape Town are home to the most extravagant suburbs and stately homes in the country, the corridor between Durban, Umhlanga and Ballito is witnessing a massive surge in property growth. Offering an idyllic coastal lifestyle, where you can swap your Prada’s for a pair of Burberry slides or Havaianas, KZN is all about tropical beach weather, golf courses, indigenous forest—and a flourishing property market.

The fastest-growing wealth market in the country

One of KZN’s best-kept secrets—the corridor between Durban, Umhlanga and Ballito are experiencing the most prominent growth in South Africa since 2009, outperforming other provinces as an investment destination. Offering way more than just a ‘luxury home by the sea’, the dolphin coast is the fastest-growing wealth market in the country in AfrAsia Bank’s 2019 South Africa Wealth Report, revealing a 25% growth trajectory over the past decade.

Since SARB’s decision last month to hold the repo rate at 3.5% and the prime lending rate at 7%—now is the best time to snap up a holiday beach property, especially with King Shaka International Airport on the corridor’s doorstep. Besides the magnificent stretch of properties that dot this prestigious coastline, young families, avid golfers, eco-enthusiasts, and retirees have an enormous pick of pristine gated estates with spacious freestanding homes.

You’re either creating wealth or a passive income

Escaping city crime and grime, the Dolphin Coast is quickly becoming the new ‘property capital’ of South Africa. It is a highly desirable lifestyle with sound value-for-money homes. With the North Coast attracting more professionals and tourists, it is one of the country’s most desirable locations to live, holiday and invest. The coast’s impeccable views, easy access to routes, and proximity to schools, hospitals, malls, restaurants and nightlife, offer high rental opportunities that guarantee a steady income stream.

The area of choice for investors and developers

The North Coast is experiencing a surge of investment across commercial, corporate, and residential spaces. Although Umhlanga triggered this growth, the North Coast has always been a popular holiday and lifestyle destination. A kept secret that’s recently reinvented itself, this lush part of KZN is pulling rank. Partially driven by a trend in golf-estate living, the Umhlanga-Ballito corridor is drawing substantial investment in developments, with several projects on the go.

Besides an R76 billion master plan set to transform the North Coast from Ballito upwards, there are expansions in Zululami, Elaleni, Seaton Club, and Springvale Country Estates that are in various stages of planning and execution. Three apartment blocks are also going up in Sibaya, and a grand resort-style development near the casino, all of which add to the luxury of choice for secure coastal gated environments.

A luxury lifestyle with work, shopping, schools, and leisure on your doorstep

Just as some people choose to raise their kids in the country, many prefer the coast. However, the Umhlanga-North Coast offers the best of both worlds: a safe, gated lifestyle surrounded by forest coupled with the warm Indian Ocean and coral reefs that wrap along the coastline, making surfing, hiking, sailing, horse riding, paddle-boarding, kite-surfing, and snorkelling an everyday reality.

While you’re here—get in touch with the leaders in the KZN luxury property

With an abundance of world-class beaches, non-stop outdoor adventure, top-end schools, shopping malls and boutiques, luxury spas and fantastic restaurants and cabana bars, the Umhlanga-North Coast has it all.

Avoid These Blind Spots: Questions Buyers, Sellers and Renters Must Ask Before Signing the Dotted Line

You’ve heard it all before: buying, selling and renting a home is an exciting experience. Not only is there the thrill of the hunt and catch but also the excitement of the deal.

However, not all Real Estate Agents are equal. Working with a credible Estate Agent with deep industry knowledge and experience coupled with an extensive professional network, excellent communication and negotiating skills and a marketing division ensures your property sells at top dollar or that you buy and rent for the best price in the market.

As one of the leading Real Estate Companies in South Africa—with a national footprint, Tyson Properties understand that buying a home is a significant investment. Renting a house or apartment is exciting, and selling a property is a milestone investment opportunity.

We also recognise that buyers, sellers, and renters often overlook many blind spots before signing the dotted line—and end up making poor and costly decisions. Whether you’re a seller, buyer or renter, here are the most important questions to ask your agent and tips to follow that will empower you, ensuring you get your money’s worth.

Sellers: How will you market my property?

The more appealing a home, the higher price it may fetch. Sellers always ask Agents for advice on how to increase property value with interior and exterior upgrades, and they get the best advice. Yet sellers often overlook an essential part of selling a property—marketing. Today, Real Estate competition is fierce, and property for sale needs more than a few improvements to reach top dollar. Sellers need Agents with a more thoughtful marketing approach.

To set your property apart from the rest and deliver the best results and returns possible, choose an expert Estate Agent proficient in drawing on tailored marketing plans that combine a sophisticated blend of marketing technologies and streamlined processes.

While Instagram, Facebook and Twitter make it easy for sellers to go local, the best Estate Agents remedy sales fatigue by thinking outside the box with SEO, staged show days, email marketing, video marketing, and paid advertising with professional photography.

Buyers: Do you recommend a home inspection?

In Real Estate Sales, what you see isn’t what you always get. Estate Agents stage houses well, accentuating the best and hiding the worst, with buyers only noticing freshly painted walls, oval spa bath, marble kitchen countertops, exotic hardwood flooring, and the wooden pergola, and swing with the outside kitchen. They do not see cracks and leaks, mould on walls and in cupboards, ancient plumbing and wiring and clay soil and diseased trees in the backyard. That is why home inspections are critical.

A home inspection is an essential move in the home-buying process. It protects you, your bank account, and several surprises your agent forgot to mention. Inspectors evaluate structural integrity and plumbing like the property foundation, rusting pipes and geysers, electric fencing, and all necessary maintenance and repairs that affect living standards and quality of life.

Once you have a breakdown of the inspection report—which you as the buyer will pay for, you can renegotiate, fix the problems at your own cost after the sale, or walk away from the deal knowing you just dodged a bullet.

Renters: Is there anything else I should know about the property?

As empty-nesters downsize, middle-class families cut back on living expenses, millennial chooses work opportunities and travel over long leases and bonds, and properties sit empty after the 2018 Airbnb accommodation investment rush—rentals are once again a trend. However, similar to sellers and buyers, renters must ask questions before they sign the dotted line.

For instance, question what the rental rate includes—like utilities and amenities. Who do you call in an emergency, and who pays if something breaks? Do the fittings work, and is their mould? Besides the above, ask if there is anything you should know about the property before signing the lease, like a violent crime, problematic neighbours, unsafe parking, previous fire or water damage, or anything that could negatively affect your living standards.

In Real Estate, knowledge is power, and asking the right questions could save you hundreds of thousands of rands in damages or lawsuits. Besides doing your due diligence and questioning the agreement, neighbourhood safety and property maintenance, ensure you ask questions about the properties interior and exterior. Dig deep and get answers as the more knowledgeable you are, the better decision you will make.

Sandton Yesterday and Today: The History of the Richest Square Mile in Africa

After a lifestyle that only a few in the world can afford to afford? Stretching across 51.68 square miles and north of Johannesburg city centre—above Melrose Arch and to the right of Randburg, Sandton is the wealthiest square mile on the African continent. Synonymous with currency, extravagance and privilege, Sandton is the suburb where the well-heeled live, work, invest and play. However, this comfortable suburb was not always swimming in wealth.

Taking its name from Bryanston and Sandown, Sandton has come a far way since middle stone-age hunters arrived around 30,000 years ago. Then 20,000 years later, the ancestors of the San tribe crossed the plains of Sandton. Four centuries later, Bantu tribes brought the iron age, introducing an agriculture and metalwork economy. Fast forward 120 years to when the richest goldfield on earth was discovered, and then to the Great Depression of the 1930s, which saw an influx of Voortrekkers and Europeans, leading to farming and rapid urban development.

From rural beginnings to Manhattan-style skyscrapers

In 1969, Sandton declared its municipality and opened its doors as a town in 1973. From that moment, Sandton, the sleepy village with sandy horse trails and green open pastures, never looked back as it became Johannesburg’s premier commercial expansion point. Today, Sandton, with its Manhattan-style skyscrapers, palatial homes, trendy eateries, fast cars, designer boutiques and residents that look like they made their millions in BIG Tech, is home to 10% of Fortune 500s listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

One of SA’s most inspiring development success stories

Giving Umhlanga, in the north of Durban, and Cape Towns’ Bantry Bay and Clifton a run for its money—Sandton is one of South Africa’s most inspiring development success stories. Sandton is today a tale of an awe-inspiring journey. Famed for its power and wealth and proudly built from the ground up almost half a century ago, Sandton has more money per city block than any other African city. Today, the metropolis is not only home to the finest financial and legal consultants, the largest blue-chip companies, most influential investment banks, and the biggest convention centre in Africa. Sandton is also home to a rising number of affluent locals and internationals.

The ideal hood for those who desire a safe, fast, high-flying lifestyle

Sandton may be the heart of big business in South Africa, but the people, the lifestyle, the fashion, the shopping, and the nightlife are just as appealing. As the most fashionable and desirable suburb in Johannesburg, home to retirees, families, and those in Big Tech living the high life, it is only natural this luxury suburb offers the highest level of convenience.

A melting pot of cultures from all over the world—filled with buzz and energy, this high-heel village is only a stone throw away from fancy side-walk cafes, art galleries, 5-star eateries, exclusive designer boutiques, and chic craft and gin bars. It boasts clinics and private hospitals, and it is home to some of the best private schools in the country. Sandton is the ideal hood for those who desire a safe, fast, high-flying lifestyle with the beauty of nature all around.

The Trendiest Suburb with the Best Quality of Life

As the financial district in Gauteng and South Africa, this top-tier suburb boasts exclusive gated residential estates, affluent cluster developments, modern red-carpet apartment complexes with opulent penthouses, and the most glamorous and extravagant mansions in the world. Ticking every box and more in terms of indulgence, architecture, space, features, and unparalleled security—this is one neighbourhood where young children skateboard and ride their bicycles and where residents sleep peacefully at night.

A Mecca for Investors

A postal code of envy—and one every property investor wants to add to their property portfolio, Sandton is not just the Manhattan of Johannesburg for families, executives and retirees who enjoy the finer things in life. It is the Mecca for investors looking for excellent ROIs. Unlike a financial investment that can park for years, property investments in this suburb vaunt high short and long-term rental opportunities that guarantee a stable income stream. As a valuable asset/investment that keeps growing and growing, investing in this trendy hood means you are either creating future wealth or securing a passive income.

You do not have to be a millionaire to live in Sandton

Johannesburg may thrive with millionaires—but it has plenty of affordable property options. Cementing its position as the most significant financial sector in South Africa and providing a perfect balance of exquisite real estate in a prime location, Sandton is a magnet for those wanting to be in the middle of it all.

Property prices have dropped by 12%, with the cost of renting versus buying swinging very much in favour of buying. Whether after a grand family home with security that will put the Hawks to shame, a palatial penthouse with breathtaking city views, a second holiday or business property, or an investment property that can yield high returns, turn to the property specialists at Tyson Properties.

Property Home Inspections: 5 Tips Every Buyer Must Know before Signing the Dotted Line

It’s a buyers’ market, and you’ve made an offer on a prime piece of property on the water’s edge. The seller accepted. However, with buying a property, what you see isn’t exactly what you get.

Purchasing a new property is the single largest investment most people ever make, and while the process is exciting, it’s also stressful. If you’re not vigilant, you could easily spend more than you intended, or even worse, buy a grand three-storey home with more defects than the one you just spent a fortune fixing before flipping.

What you see isn’t always what you get

Real estate professionals are masters at staging houses, and it’s all geared toward making buyers see a glamorous property. The house will boast colourful bouquets and glimmering floors and big, clean windows. If the agent is fantastic at their job, you will even smell the fresh aroma of gourmet coffee and oven-baked cookies. You will envision a happy family home with en-suite bedrooms, a sparkling chrome and granite kitchen to whip up meals, a backyard to grow your herbs, and a swimming pool the kids will love.

Buyers are captivated by the superficial that they overlook what’s underneath, like the foundation, wall cracks, mould in cupboards, peeling paint behind furniture, asbestos insulation, dangerous wiring, broken appliances, ancient plumbing, and lifeless trees in the backyard. That is why home inspections are critical.

What is a home inspection?

There’s no such thing as a “perfect” home—just the right one. A home inspection will almost always reveal some issue that needs attention, short term and long term. An essential step in the home-buying process—protecting you, your bank account, and several surprises that your agent forgot to mention, a home inspection report is an examination that outlines necessary maintenance and repairs that affect living standards and quality of life.

Once the buyer has a breakdown of the inspection report, they can renegotiate, fix the problems at their own cost after the sale, or walk away from the deal. As the buyer, you also pay for the inspection report, and if you want to get the most value, consider the following tips.

1. Inspect the inspector

The best inspectors understand the property market and can quickly identify problems. They can determine repair costs and even advise the buyer when to walk away or take on costs. A home inspector can be the difference between financial loss and a happy long-term relationship with your home, which is why you must only work with someone brilliant at what they do. Similar to any other professional, do not hire the first inspector you find—just because the price is right. Vet several local inspectors to ensure they have a track record of thorough inspections.

2. Prepare your inspection checklist.

A spacious kitchen with plenty of contemporary features is a dream of every homeowner. A family living room with a fireplace that will keep your family warm during the winter months and a master bedroom with glass doors that lead out onto a patio and swimming pool can hypnotise anyone into signing the dotted line. But what about the things you cannot see unless you ask? As a high-ticket lifelong investment, your job is to walk through the home and make notes of everything that might be a safety or financial risk in the future.

3. Do NOT overlook structural integrity and plumbing

How old is the geyser, and was the house built on a slab or a raised foundation? A faulty foundation and structure with cracks can cause severe problems down the line, just like water damage. Plumbing and sanitation are also items worthy of a closer inspection. While you may have noticed cosmetic flaws, you cannot see rusting pipes hidden behind walls; old copper or asbestos geysers buried in attics and basements, or aged water systems only months away from a breakdown.

4. Look for signs of infestation

Wood-destroying termites and beetles thrive in warm weather and can cause severe interior and exterior structural damage. If the house has wooden stairs, floors, ceilings, or an attic and basement, get an inspector to examine for termite damage or decaying wood. Should you need an exterminator, it is typical for the seller to foot the bill.

5. Check the electrics

It pays to know property age as this can signal the condition of the electrical box, and repairs required to bring the property up to code. Ensure your inspector tests service drops, conductors, electrical meter and panels, grounding and bonding, switches, power outlets, fuse boxes and circuit breakers. The report, which will come with a cost estimate, will advise you to either replace the electric box, outdated wiring or the electrical panels.

Getting a home inspection on a property that you’ve fallen head-over-heels for can feel like getting a detective to assess someone you’re interested in dating. Insulation problems, shocking plumbing, and shoddy wiring take a professional eye to detect. Knowledge is power, and knowing more about the ins and outs of your dream home not only tells you exactly what you’re entering into, but it saves you heartbreak and loads of cash down the line.

Morningside in the Berea: Durban’s New Investment Hotspot

An exclusive piece of Durban’s affluent property sector, the trendy area of Berea in KZN is witnessing a surge of interest for foreign investors and locals. Even with economic pressure affecting consumer buying power, demand is higher than supply and attraction is likely to grow.

Once a natural and picturesque Eden—overlooking a tranquil bay of crocodiles and hippo’s, the story of Berea began in 1497, when Vasco De Gama Founded Durban, and again in 1835 when European settlers founded a small church on the hills above Port Natal and called it Berea.

Today, the Berea—which includes Windermere, Musgrave, Essenwood, Morningside and Glenwood, is a lush, trendy residential belt that stretches above the city of Durban, overlooking the big bright city lights and the Indian Ocean.

Morningside at a glance

Although Durban’s long coastline beach is the city’s biggest drawcard—with locals flocking the promenade to cycle, run, surf, swim, fish, or bask in the sun, living in Morningside makes good sense. There is so much to do, and everything is so central. It hosts four of the top shopping centres in Durban and the Botanical Gardens, Bulwer Park, and Mitchell Park, home to a small zoo.

Morningside is an excellent choice for homeowners and renters who wish easy access to a safer lifestyle and investors looking for an excellent ROI. It’s close to the beach, malls, parks, CBD area, and the Kwa-Zulu Natal University, and it is also home to some of the best academic and sporting schools in Durban.

As a result, this vibrant neighbourhood appeals to a diverse residential demographic, attracting a cultural blend of upmarket and middle-class buyers, renters and investors of all ages, local and international.

High rental and high resale opportunities

After Umhlanga, Morningside is an appealing part of Durban that has long been a favourite for South Africans. As one of Durban’s most eclectic suburbs—boasting trendy affordable apartments, large art deco and period-style stately homes, and sectional title developments, Morningside sustains its current position in terms of market demand and sales.

With its impeccable views, easy access to routes, and beautiful properties, investing in a property in Morningside means you’re creating wealth, or you’re creating a passive income. An asset/investment that you can expect to yield excellent ROIs, Morningside offers high rental opportunities that guarantee a steady income stream.
