10 Reasons To Live In The City


The inner city has become an increasingly popular residential choice among various groups, including young families, creative professionals and entrepreneurs.

C Is For Community

One of the top trends in urban rejuvenation at present is the creation of co-living spaces, with combinations of residential, retail and recreational spaces. This means you can live, work and play in the same neighbourhood.

On The Cheap

Many do not realise that a brand-new apartment in the inner city could actually be a more affordable option than renting far away and paying for transport. Also, newly developed buildings in the city often incorporate the latest technologies to help residents save hundreds of Rands per month on water and electricity.

Safe As Houses

Reputable property and building managers employ state-of-the-art security measures and regular maintenance crews to ensure that their properties are clean and safe, putting an end to the old stereotype of derelict slums.

Centre Of Attention

A city residence is generally centrally located in close proximity to major attractions, transport routes, schools and shopping outlets, making it easy to manage your lifestyle needs and access everything you need, without having to travel far.

Slashing Down Travel Time

For many, moving to the city means cutting their commute right down or even eliminating it completely, giving you more time back to spend where it matters. 

Upping The Value Ad

In addition to reasonable rentals, investors in inner city residential properties have recognised the demand for always-on connectivity. Many offer extras, like affordable high-speed internet, backup supply solutions to safeguard against load shedding, as well as loyalty and referral schemes that incentivise long-term rentals and on-time payment.

Brand Spanking New Apartments

Urban renovations and developments have become a popular investment vehicle for property entrepreneurs, who are bringing back those long-absent cranes and developing brand new apartment blocks with modern finishes and appliances. 

Dope Nightlife

As mentioned earlier, many new developments in the city today include a number of recreational facilities, such as parks, children’s playgrounds, gyms, retail outlets and clubs. And where such facilities might not necessarily be located on the property, there is an array of options nearby.

What Dreams Are Made Of

There’s a reason why people have always been attracted to the bright city lights. There is an infectious energy about that never-ending bustle that tends to uplift and inspire – it’s no wonder that many of the people who choose to make the inner city their home happen to be creative types.

C Is Also For Compact

One of the biggest trends to take the world by storm in recent years has been the “compact home” movement, inspired by the general increase in environmental awareness and a desire to combine conscious living and convenience. A compact home in the heart of the city is easy to clean and maintain, and lets you lock up and go as it suits you.
