Tips for buying a property in Cape Town

There is no denying the beauty of the Cape and you can hardly go wrong with picking an area to call home!  However, moving to Cape Town (or the surrounding towns and cities) is not without its challenges.


Each area or suburb in Cape Town can have a very different feeling and energy.  From the city hustle and bustle of Greenpoint and Sea Point, to family living in the Southern Suburbs or the quieter Durbanville, it may take some time to find the right fit for you.


If you’re planning to move to Cape Town, you should consider renting a property before you decide to buy one. Renting provides you with the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the city and its neighbourhoods before you make a long-term commitment. Take your time to explore the different areas, consider the proximity to your work and other amenities, and get a feel for the lifestyle that suits you best. Renting also gives you the flexibility to move if you find that the location doesn’t meet your needs.


When you’re ready to take the next big step and semigrate to the Cape, be sure to keep the following in mind while you search for your new dream home.


  • Buying a home is a big milestone and a significant financial commitment, whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner. Navigating property law in South Africa can be complex, which is why you shouldn’t hesitate to seek legal advice and the services of a reputable property professional.
  • It’s essential to remember the cost of purchasing a home isn’t just about the price. It includes various other expenses, so make sure to account for these.
  • When purchasing a property, you’ll want to familiarise yourself with all the terms and conditions involved. This includes understanding your rights and responsibilities as a buyer, and what legal steps follow should a seller renege on a clause in your initial offer to purchase as well as the conditions of your offer to purchase.
  • Before house hunting, research home loans, bond originators, and conveyancers to understand their roles, costs, and requirements.
