With the N1 being so close, allows one to access any tourist attraction or entertainment venues very quickly. The area is abuzz with restaurants, pubs, the finest shops, theatres and a Golf Course. Many of these suburban residents say that they don’t have the need to every leave the area.

It is extremely scenic and very clean. There are many security complexes as well as retirement complexes where people feel safe to live.

As many as 30% to 40% of all buyers in these areas are what is called “millennials”, often first-time buyers.  The Northern suburbs are also particularly well suited to family buyers and offer outstanding value.

Some of the top schools are situated in the Northern Suburbs.

The Brackenfell, Kuils River and Kraaifontein areas remain among the most sought-after property areas, and it is expected that there will always be good opportunities for sellers and buyers.
