Buying off-plan property in Stellenbosch

  1. Stellenbosch sees an average annual capital growth of 7%, so your property value is growing at roughly 7% pa but you are only required to put down 10% of the development value.
  2. This means you are getting growth on the full purchase price of the property and only have to put down a fraction of the price.
  3. Your tenant is largely paying off your investment property & bond for you.
  4. Your rental income increases every year but bond repayments generally stay the same and in relation to yearly salary and incomes inflating, the bond repayments become relatively cheaper every year.
  5. The longer it takes to enter the property market the harder it becomes.
  6. Property investment is likely to create long-term sustainable wealth and an ever-increasing annuity income.
  7. At this price point the difference between a bond repayment and rental amount might be small enough to consider buying your own property rather than renting from someone else.

Bond pre-qualification and pre-approval

This can be done online by using the Ooba Indicator. It is a quick process to estimate the approximate amount you could qualify for. This is however NOT a bond approval.

What happens if my bond is not approved, do I get my deposit back?
Yes, the deal is subject to your bond being approved and should it not be approved the deposit is paid back to you with interest.

If you are unsure if you can afford the bond it is a good idea to get pre-qualified prior to the 25th October 2023, the sales day

Follow the link below to check your affordability:

Once my bond is approved, when do I start paying?

Bond repayments will commence once the property has been built and transferred into your name and the bank has settled the payment to the seller.

Bond registration costs

Bond costs are payable at the time that the bond registers, once the development is complete. Transfer duties: There is no transfer duty payable but there are transfer fees (attorney costs). The seller is registered for VAT so there will be no transfer duty but only transfer costs payable.

The transferring attorneys are providing a 25% discount on bond registration costs.

What are the transfer fees?

To calculate the transfer costs you can click on the below link:

Transfer Duty Calculator | Transfer Cost Calculator (


On a purchase price of R2 million the transfer costs would typically be R41 237* however, we have negotiated a discount with our transferring attorneys who will be offering clients a 25% discount, meaning that the transfer costs would be reduced to R30 928.
*Please note these are subject to change

What do the levies include?

They cover the costs of security, cleaning & landscaping of the common areas, maintenance of the building, building insurance and all running costs and management costs and insurance of the building.


Monthly rates are based on the value of the property and are calculated based on the value of the property less R250 000 and then multiplied by 0.005397 to get your yearly rates. Divide this by 12 to get your monthly rates.

Example: R2 Million Property
=(R2 000 000 – R250 000)* 0.005397 = R9 444 per annum
This equates to R787 per month

Are there any hidden costs?

The contract price is the price the client will pay for the property. You must be aware that there is occupational interest due from the date you take occupation until you take ownership (transfer takes place).

The other costs applicable are detailed above and include monthly rates and levies. Bond costs will be payable prior to registration of your bond once you take transfer of your unit. Transfer costs at this point will also be applicable.

The development offers extra’s at an additional cost should you select items such as air-conditioning and double glazing.

When will we be able to move in/find a tenant?
