SAMUEL SEEFF

PROPERTY MARKET STILL LARGELY

ALL ABOUT THE BUYERS

As we head into the middle part of 2019, we take encouragement from a number of positive developments for the economy and property market, including a more stable outlook for business confidence and the currency.

T

he Seeff Property Group welcomed the decision to keep the interest rate on hold as the right decision for the country. We need stability so that we can get on with rebuilding confidence and the economy. President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation address (SONA 2019) was positive, and one of hope and taking the next steps towards his “new dawn” and economic renewal. We are particularly encouraged by the investment successes and various initiatives aimed at dealing with corruption, maladministration, administrative costcutting, economic growth and stabilising the SOEs. While the national election is anticipated to be a turning point for the economy, for now, it remains largely all about the buyers. As Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni said in his maiden budget speech, there is no “quick solution” and economic recovery will be gradual

because there is much to be done. What does this mean for the year ahead? The property market will continue to trade fairly flat with mostly sideways activity during the early part of this year. Fundamentals will remain vulnerable with subdued demand, longer sales cycles and fairly stagnant price growth. The “must buy and must sell” market, generally below R1.5 million (up to R3 million depending on the area), will remain active and well-priced properties will sell within a reasonable timeframe. The second market, i.e. those with discretionary money who do not have to buy or sell, are likely to continue waiting and watching how things unfold. In the upper price ranges, it will remain largely discretionary buying with only those who really need to buy transacting right now. That said, Seeff’s advice to buyers and sellers, is that there is

no reason to wait if you need to, or want to, buy or sell. Price growth has remained fairly subdued, and the lending landscape remains positive. While it may be riskier now, you could ultimately see greater returns. Sellers, though, will need to keep their price expectations in check if they want to transact right now. There are no

guarantees, and Seeff concludes that if you need to, or want to, sell be sure to consider all serious offers. SAMUEL SEEFF Chairman Seeff Property Group

Celebrating 125 years of excellence

H

erold Gie Attorneys, which was established in 1894, is this year celebrating 125 years of practice in Cape Town. The firm has a rich history and is proud to be one of the oldest firms in South Africa to have retained its original name. The firm began as the one-man practice of Francis William Reitz, who was a law agent practising from offices in Adderley Street. In 1896 Charles Willoughby Herold joined the practice, and by 1932 both George Gerhard Gie and Archibald Corderoy Broadhead

had joined Charles Herold in the partnership, thereby expanding the firm and its ability to offer a wide range of legal services to its clients. The names of these founding partners remain part of the firm’s name today, Herold Gie & Broadhead Incorporated. Interestingly, the firm’s initial areas of practice included what was known as “town conveyancing, country conveyancing, estate work and investments”. To this day, Herold Gie Attorneys has retained a strong emphasis on

the practice of conveyancing and all aspects of the specialised area of property law. The modern firm of Herold Gie Attorneys continues to service its clients from conveniently placed offices in Cape Town, Bellville and Kenilworth. Herold Gie continues to grow from strength to strength, with the diverse skills and expertise of its practitioners and an ever growing client base, and looks forward to celebrating many more years of excellence in the legal industry.

his record sale, within six weeks of assigning a sole mandate to Seeff confirms that the top end of the market always remains somewhat insulated against short term economic adjustments. The quality of the property and of the agency actively promoting the property obviously also count a lot. This designer penthouse holds an elevated position on the highest slopes of iconic Table Mountain and is arguably one of the most special properties in the City Bowl. Not in the least for its spectacular views from every corner of the property. To the front, the vista over Table Bay and the Mother City stretches endlessly, while lush vegetation around the property and the imposing bulk of Lion’s Head’s rockface paint the rest of the picture. This executive penthouse offers a super secure, lock-up-and-go lifestyle combined with a leafy garden as well as a serene swimming pool and private patio and al fresco entertainment area. Outdoors becomes indoors with large stackable glass doors that open the flow between the living spaces completely. The designer chef’s Italian kitchen, with its integrated appliances, leads onto the dining area and the main front lounge area, making it easy to entertain guests at the highest level. These entertainment areas have a feeling of light and space and nature is never far from the corner of one’s eye. The spacious north-facing master suite has an extended dressing room and its own balcony. No expense has been spared to create a truly rejuvenating experience with the en-suite bathroom, where earthy tones and crisp whites set the theme. There are a

further two bedroom suites that lead out to the gorgeous garden with views of Table Mountain and an additional separate private room that could be used as an office.   This home has a double garage and elevator access and a state-of-the-art security system. Signing a sole mandate with Seeff secures the dedicated attention of some of the very best agents in the industry. In the case of Madelein Armstrong, she has sold properties all across the world; most recently in the top end London luxury segment. Now back in Cape Town, Madelein firmly believes that luxury buyers are progressively drawn to the mountain, greenery, ease of living and excellent value to be found in the City Bowl. With one of the greatest cities in the world on your doorstep, one has to agree. When it comes to lifestyle, speak to your Seeff agent to get first in line when Cape Town’s most distinctive properties come to market. And when you are ready to sell and upgrade, you are always in fantastic hands with a Seeff sole mandate.

BLACKSMITH, ARTIST, CLOCKMAKER Guy Luck was not always a clock maker. He originally worked as a geologist. Early on in his career Guy took up model engineering and built 5-inch gauge live steam locomotives while involved with the miniature railway club in Plettenbeng Bay. Upon relocating to Cape Town, Guy tried his hand at making a clock and this became his passion. His inspiration came from the well-known English horologist John Wilding, and others. He has since made about 30 clocks of all types, including regulators, long case clocks, skeleton clocks and even some electric clocks. In his own designs, Guy uses stainless steel for the frames instead of the more traditional brass. This gives the clocks a more modern look. All the working parts are made entirely by Guy and the attention to detail and careful craftsmanship is clearly demonstrated in his work. His clocks take many weeks to build.

APPOINTING A CONVEYANCER: WHY IT IS A SELLER’S CHOICE In property sale agreements, it is the seller that has the right to nominate the conveyancing attorney that will attend to the registration of the transaction in the deeds office. Sellers, however, often take little interest in who is appointed as conveyancer because the purchaser pays the conveyancer’s fee.

Clearly it is not only advantageous but crucial that the seller exercises discretion when appointing a conveyancer to attend to manage the process of the transfer of his home. Ask yourself: Is the conveyancer known and from an established conveyancing firm? Does the conveyancer have adequate experience? Is the conveyancer prepared to assist with the sales transaction prior to the conclusion thereof? Does the firm have a sound track record?

AD STBB

However, even though the purchaser finances the transaction costs, the election to nominate the conveyancer rests with the seller because it is necessary to ensure that the process is driven by the party who has the least interest in delaying transfer. A late transfer costs a seller money in lost interest and opportunity cost and, if transfer of the property sold was intended to occur simultaneously with property that the seller has purchased, delays can also cause much anxiety and embarrassment.

STBB is reputed for their conveyancing expertise and benchmark client service. With 11 offices in South Africa, it is also the largest property law firm in South Africa. So contact us at www.stbb.co.za for assistance in all aspects of your sale transaction, before you sign your agreement.

L I S E T T E F O R S Y T H LAND THE DEAL DEAL

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SQUARE

StateoftheART is an innovative, boutique-style gallery and e-commerce platform representing selected emerging and midcareer visual artists from across South Africa. Now available to collectors are works from the recent exhibition called “LAND” by Lisette Forsyth. Her work is distinguished by her use of found materials as the ‘canvas’ for her paintings, upon which she creates a context and a dialogue between the background surface and subject matter.

ARTIST STATEMENT: LAND “South Africa belongs to all who live in it” was the dream. But now land is the ultimate issue and the great divide. Because land defines who, what and where we are. With land we are all monarchs, without it we are serfs. This current art of mine is an expression of the riddle of the land. REPATRIATION

SEEFF BLUE MAGAZINE | 22


VISUAL ESSAY Which has to be solved. Somehow. For all our sakes.

ELIGIBLE LAND

ALL ROADS OVER THE LAND

But what is the true value of land? A walk near Onrus (Unrest) brings me to a totally undeveloped stretch of coast, with a hill for a superb vantage point, an enormous Milkwood forest for a background, and pristine pool for enjoyment. I make a painting of a group of men in intense conversation – The Deal – something is going down. I paint this on a wood grain to represent the surging surf and it presages a burning bus, brick and debris-strewn, angry streets and a neighbourhood agitated by house allocation and land hunger. Time passes.

TO BUILD A HOUSE

STATEOFTHEART Established in 2010 and a pioneer in the online art market in South Africa, StateoftheART brings a carefully curated collection of affordable contemporary art directly to collectors by offering secure access to unique works of art through a “click-to-buy” service for collectors unable to visit the Cape Town gallery in person. All artists have been carefully selected. Instead of showcasing thousands of artists, the gallery chooses to represent only a limited number so that collectors can be sure of the quality of the fine art for sale. Importantly, the majority of proceeds from a sale are given to the artists who create these works, so when the public buys art from StateoftheART it is directly supporting the artists. StateoftheART opened its physical doors in the centre of Cape Town in 2013 to meet the desire of artists for their works to be seen “in real life”.

In orderly shacks on the dump-top hill-top, a new community gasps for life. The pool chokes. Axes and machetes thud dully in the milkwood. The forest recedes. The ‘owner’ refuses compensation. Riddle me this: whose land is it anyway?

A

ston Martin’s 2019 season of luxury lifestyle events promises to be the best yet, providing guests with the opportunity to enjoy unparalleled access to world-class events at home and abroad. Art of Living by Aston Martin is the brand’s luxury lifestyle programme, created for those who want to live life the Aston Martin way, indulging in curated lifestyle experiences in areas such as travel, haute cuisine, sport, fashion and culture. The season kicked off in February with the popular “Hokkaido on Ice”, which took guests to the Tokachi International Circuit in Japan to learn how to find the limit of an Aston Martin sports car on snow and ice alongside specialist Aston Martin driving instructors, followed by a relaxing session of unwinding in a hot spring. A glorious season lies ahead for motorsport enthusiasts, starting with the Monaco in May where guests can enjoy a night-race weekend with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. As part of the Aston Martin family, Art of Living guests will enjoy the company of like-minded people gathered to indulge in a shared passion for speed with exclusive inside access at one of the world’s most glamorous sporting events. For those with a passion for sports cars, the 24 Hours of Le Mans awaits. Helicopter transfers to and from a luxury chateau take guests into the world of endurance racing and special behind-the-scenes access to the Aston Martin Racing team as it competes in the season finale of the World Endurance Championship.

COCKTAILS

C O UNT O N COINTREAU

Cointreau is a legendary drink. It’s the world's first and original triple sec, and is still produced today using the exact same recipe settled on by Edouard Cointreau in 1875. This orange-flavoured triple sec liqueur is produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou, France. Distilled using the perfect balance of sweet and bitter orange peels, Cointreau can also be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, with soda or tonic water.

DEVELOPMENTS

CON S T RUCT ION COM MENCES AT KERZNER ESTATE Sol Kerzner has left deep footprints across the world and is undeniably one of the most visionary and bold property developers in the world. He has broken ground at many of his famous landmarks, that include, among others, Sun City, the Lost City, Sandton Sun, the Beverley Hills Hotel, the Elangeni and Atlantis in Dubai and the Bahamas. Most recently, construction has commenced at his much anticipated Kerzner Estate, set to become one of the most exclusive estates on the Atlantic Seaboard.

S

tretching over the 10 hectares of land he owns between Hout Bay and Llandudno located high on Leeukoppie and with views of Chapman’s Peak, the bay, valley and mountains, the Estate will eventually host 48 plots of approximately 1 500m2 apiece. According to Ross Levin, Director at Seeff Atlantic Seaboard and City Bowl: “Construction group Blackland has started this month on the first houses in the estate. Three of the initial eight houses have sold at record prices of R30.5 million to R37 million.” Levin explains that in addition to high demand from local buyers, there has been strong international interest with two of the properties sold to buyers from Germany and the UK. While the Kerzners have given the go-ahead for further house designs, purchasers do have the option of choosing a plot starting from R3.7 million, along with their preferred architect from the approved panel, and can custom design their own house with the peace of mind of having Kerzner overseeing and managing the process to the highest

international standards. “As part of this benchmark development, and in keeping with Kerzner’s vision of always innovating and stretching the limits of possibility, six top architectural firms are working on the designs, the first houses being designed by ARRCC, Metropolis Architects, and Fabian Make Architects,” Levin says. Features include air conditioning, fireplaces in the living areas, EuroCasa Kitchens with Miele Appliances, stone and wooden flooring, top quality bathrooms, double glazing, swimming pools, provision for grey and rain water harvesting and landscaping allowances. The first houses are expected to be ready for hand-over by mid-2020. All infrastructure and services are already in place, and the gym and top-class security systems will be ready before the first house is handed over. Contact Taryn Selmon to claim your place in the most exclusive estate the Cape has ever seen.
