On Friday, 14th September 2012 almost 50 South African expats were treated to a memorable ‘taste of SA’ at the London Scottish Golf Club in Wimbledon compliments of North Global Group (NGG), developers of Sheffield Manor. The gathering was made up of professionals and other interested parties keen to find out more about the status of property development and investment opportunities in South Africa.
The news took most attendees by surprise because despite a depressed economy, one residential development in South Africa hasn’t slowed down since it took off in 2010. Sheffield Manor’s residential development, located on the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal in Ballito, has already begun their final phase of development with only 80 units left having sold and built 180 properties in the first three phases. The already impressive response to the value for money units sold on the estate and the speed at which the estate has been developed has caught the attention of the SA property trade, including SA’s highly acclaimed Property Magazine who in 2012 deemed Sheffield Manor as “the most successful residential investment in South Africa in years.”
Needless to say the SA expats in attendance were very impressed with the potential investment opportunities presented to them by Sheffield Manor’s sales team, Dave Perks & Devon De Lange. According to De Lange the amount of leads and genuine sales enquiries received on the night far outweighed their expectations. “It was a hugely successful evening and people in the UK seemed genuinely excited about buying property in Sheffield Manor and were ready to sign on the dotted line there and then”, confirmed De Lange.
One of the guests in attendance, Eugene Zietsman, added, “I bought my property in Sheffield Manor over December and knew other colleagues and friends of mine living in the UK would also be interested in what this stunning estate has to offer. The units are so reasonable, the setting and facilities are fantastic and best of all, when purchasing an investment unit you’re guaranteed a twelve-month rental. There really isn’t anything else like this on the market.”
But the salivating investment opportunities, variety of South African wine and other delicacies available to guests at the Sheffield Manor event weren’t the only highlights of the evening. Two signed rugby jerseys were auctioned off to those in attendance of which the total proceeds of £240 are being donated by NGG to a local North Coast charity. The winner of the Sharks’ Rugby Match Jersey signed by Sharks’ winger Odwa Ndungane was Garth Bench, and winner of the Springbok Rugby Jersey signed by a number of SA representatives was Michelle Zietsman.
