From Cape Town to Sandton, Mzansi has a dream home for everyone – depending on how deep your pockets are.
South Africa’s real estate market has some lucrative properties located in the country’s most upmarket suburbs.
Cape Town properties
According to Pam Golding Property Group’s CEO, Dr. Andrew Golding, the Cape Atlantic seaboard is a prime location for both South African and international high-net-worth buyers, particularly when it comes to properties in Clifton.
Golding also said that multimillion rand price tags were no deterrent to ultra-high-net-worth buyers when it comes to finding the right homes to meet their lifestyle requirements.
Here are some of the properties available in South Africa with a price tag of at least R100 million:
