As with every sector in South Africa and globally, the property market was hugely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic over the last couple of years. One of the major shifts we saw in the South African property market over the last two years was that people were suddenly drawn to smaller towns in search of quality of life and healthier lifestyles. Another silver lining is that the pandemic had a positive effect on interest rates. It is likely that we will not see the interest rate rise to pre-Covid figures for another couple of years although economists are predicting marginal interest rate increases during the course of the year. This will maintain a favourable environment for protentional homeowners and property investors.
Deciding to buy property in a wildlife residential estate has never made more sense than now. Likweti Bushveld Farm Estate offers residents the opportunity to experience carefree bushveld living in the heart of the Lowveld. Situated near the quaint town of White River, this development combines the best of both worlds: nature on your doorstep and convenience just around the corner.
The estate covers 765- hectare of natural Lowveld bushveld with free roaming plans game and spectacular birdlife. Residents can enjoy a number of outdoor activities on the estate and in the area surrounding the estate. The Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) is a convenient 12km from the estate and offers direct flights to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Livingstone, and Durban to name a few.
Likweti Views is the third phase of development at this popular wildlife residential estate and was launched in 2021. If the sales are anything to go by, Likweti Views will follow suit of the two previously sold-out phases. One-hectare stands are now selling from R1,1 million at Likweti Views.
