Only suckers rent LOL.

Seriaas though, take the plunge and try your best to buy. I struggled at first looking back, but best decision I have made.

Agreed, just every time I try to buy something swallows my savings so am renting still.

Paying R3500pm including water, lights, garden services and refuse removal (including emptying the sceptic tank as needed).

3 bedrooms
2 lounges
1 Study with walk in safe.
1 Laundry
1 Bathroom
Huge kitchen
Huge stoep in front
Secured stoep in back
Huge garden (if my calculations are correct around 2925 square meters? 65x45meter property).
Huge single garage.

That place sounds pretty impressive! Ever thought about approaching the owner to buy it?

It's one of several houses on her now deceased husbands grandfathers plot so doubt it will ever be for sale (she has several children of which one lives on the same plot as well).

I hear this quite often. But it is really tough to buy. Another probkem is that your first house is generally small like an apartment. You then still need to save for the bigger place.

R6000/m for 110sqm in Pinelands, Cape Town.
I'm posting down the road from you; Old Mutual.

R3600. 2 bedroom apartment. Not really big but...cozy.
Where in CT?

I am presently looking for a place in the larger town vicinity. 1 / 2 bedroom place for a maximum of R8k per month. That is not going too great.

My usual rent was R6940 in Villa Italia, Century City. This was a bargain considering most folk there are looking at R7500+ for the same 2 bedroom place. Tw'as a 64sqm place.

I'm also staying in a mining town, but there just isn't enough housing for everyone, so owners can just charge what they want.
Paying R4700 for a one bed room flat, about 70sqm, electricity is another R1000 pm.
Its Lephalale.
