23 Mar The value of Location
We have all heard the real estate catchphrase, “Location, location, location!”, and in 2017 this couldn’t be more apt. Savvy investors and astute buyers are always looking for ways to expand their property portfolio and grow their capital. With so many choices on the market and a heap of competing alternatives, how and where does one invest? It seems that looking at location is the best place to start.
Location is no longer about the suburb a property is found in, but also its proximity to surrounding amenities. Proximity is further enhanced by accessibility, and with semigration (moving to another part of the country to find a better lifestyle) on the rise, out-of-towners are looking closely at what a development’s positioning can offer them.
Zimbali Lakes Resort enjoys prime positioning on the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. This resort is nestled between the new business hub of Umhlanga and the burgeoning city of Ballito. Although geographically closer to Ballito, Zimbali Lakes Resort benefits from easy and quick access to main arterial roads and highways. The location of Zimbali Lakes Resort translates into a relatively short commute to King Shaka International Airport or Dube Tradeport via the N2 highway. Being in close proximity to Ballito is also a compelling factor for many. Ballito has made quantum leaps in terms of infrastructural developments and amenities over the last decade- what was once a seaside holiday town has now become a suburb in its own right. With the development of the Ballito Junction Mall, Netcare Alberlito Hospital and Ashton Private College, Ballito has become an attractive location.
Umhlanga is now considered the new business hub or CBD of Durban. Having attracted many blue-chip companies to take up residence on the ridge, Umhlanga is ever-growing. Zimbali Lakes Resort is conveniently placed and allows for a hassle-free commute via the M4 highway directly into Umhlanga.
It is evident that location is an extremely compelling factor for buyers and investors. Zimbali Lakes Resort is perfectly-placed to offer residents accessibility and convenience and the added benefit of secure living in world-class, family-centric estate.
