Homenet opens new office on the Vaal

Homenet opens new office on the Vaal

SA real estate giant Homenet has opened a new office to serve homebuyers and sellers in the Vaal Dam area.

The new office, Homenet Vaaldam, is located in the Vaal Marina and is headed up by seasoned property professionals Mario Grobler, Marius de Bruyn and Willie Thirion.

The Homenet group has more than 160 offices, employing hundreds of agents in scores of towns and cities around the country who collectively generate many thousands of home sales a year.

And, says operations director David Rogers, the opening of the new office will now give homeowners and potential buyers in the Vaal Dam area direct access to the group's acclaimed Five-Star service programme, "which guarantees a high level of customer service provided by the most experienced and dedicated real estate practitioners and backed by our extensive national and international referral system."

Grobler says clients definitely prefer to do business with a company that they know and trust, and that the Homenet brand is very powerful in that regard, not only because of its national exposure, but because it is synonymous with excellent service.

"And this service derives from agent education. In fact, the group is the only real estate organisation in the country so committed to training and education that it has a permanent training academy, which conducts about 100 courses a year."

As for the Vaal Dam region, he says, demand is solid, with areas such as Deneysville, Oranjeville and Vaal Marina still very much on the radar of aspiring homebuyers.

He adds that the market drivers are extremely varied however, from businessmen and entrepreneurs seeking to live in a rural environment while being within commuting distance of their businesses, to leisure homeowners and retirees.

"The choice of property available in the area is also wide, ranging from entry level townhouses to stand-alone homes and millionaires' mansions. Price growth has slowed but is still moving ahead and a number of new developments are under way, although services bottlenecks remain a problem.

"Entry level prices for stands are around R230 000 and an entry level townhouse would cost you about R950 000."
