About Me:

Andre de Villiers has been actively and consistently involved in various capacities in Cape Town real estate since 1984.
Andre also owns a SEO and social media company that focuses on solutions for the real estate business and has various other real estate related interests in Cape Town as well as in Ireland and Brazil where he has a blackberry farm and an animal sanctuary.

So many older clients want to sell their houses so they can invest their money and buy something smaller.

While we can usually be guided by professional agents about the property itself what about the actual security of the home in respect of the neighbourhood?

Probably the most frequent advice in respect of marketing residential property that I have been asked from sellers is about getting things done before selling.

There is no getting away from the issue that as the country with the greatest income disparity in the world we are also facing a crime wave that seemingly has no end.

As Sectional Title agents in Cape Town we are concerned at the increasing number of poorly managed blocks and believe from discussions with other principals that this may reflect a national trend.

With the bulk of any real estate office's budget going into marketing costs it is crucial for any owner of an agency to do his best to establish the source of the buyer and the source of the seller.

I have wanted to write this article for a while! It’s a topic few agents want to discuss with clients but it’s a discussion that every seller and his agent should have.

My experience has been that most South African sellers are really not that interested in using professional home staging services.

It is more than annoying to professional estate agents that many people choose their agent for the totally wrong reason.

If it was not totally impractical the ideal would be to 'try before you buy' but sellers are seldom looking for tenants.

The most irritating aspect of a sales is getting the various Certificates of Compliance for 'amenities health and safety' that are required.
