Owen Dormehl, CEO of Dormehl Property Group said “Apart from price, the most important factor to the vast majority of today’s purchasers definitely is security, security, security. This is closely followed by careful consideration of the general condition of the suburb, the potential lifestyle that the area will provide as well as taking into account the availability of good shopping facilities and reputable schools. In short, when purchasers are interested in a specific property they step back and ask themselves ‘will my family be safe living here, will we be proud to live here and will we be happy?’

The close proximity to a large international airport is generally not a high priority to most purchasers and therefore the relocation of Durban’s International airport from the south of Durban to the north coast will not have an adverse effect on Amanzimtoti’s property prices. With the new King Shaka airport offering truly first world standards in modern aviation travel there is also bound to be a positive spin-off for the greater Umhlanga area as it now becomes the new ‘Aerial Gateway’ to the province”.
