Bookmark and Share


Before you approach and estate agent to find properties to buy or rent in Sandton make sure that you know exactly what you are looking for. The first thing that you need to be aware of is your budget – how much can you afford to spend on the purchase of a home or on a monthly lease.

Very few people in South Africa can afford to purchase a property outright for cash and need to apply for a home loan or a mortgage bond. There are many different financial institutions that provide financing for the purchase of home. Look around to make sure that you are getting the best deal regarding interest rates, other related fees, deposit required, etc.

If you want rent a property in Sandton, it is not only the monthly lease amount that you need to consider. You will need to provide the owner of the property with at least one month’s deposit up front before the lease agreement is finalised. When using an estate agent you need to be aware that a double deposit may be required to cover the costs for the estate agent marketing and leasing the property on the owner’s behalf.

Next you need to decide whether you prefer a flat, townhouse, cluster or a house to live in. Preferences in this regard differ greatly from person to person and a good way to decide is to evaluate the features that you would like for your home. If you have pets and a large family a house or cluster may be more suitable to your needs. People who are worried about security may prefer the safe environment of a secure complex.

Now you need to list exactly what you need the house to contain. How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you require? Do you need a lock-up garage or servant quarters for a domestic worker or gardener? How many reception areas should there be and do you need a garden? When looking at flats or townhouses make sure that you find out whether they are pet friendly.

It is also a good idea to list some optional extras that would be nice to have but are not essential to you renting or purchasing properties in Sandton. These items can include thing like a swimming pool, the type of kitchen or bathroom fittings you require. Remember that when buying a property these optional extras can always be added at a later date.
