Durban has one of the best, yet most confusing property markets in South Africa and if you’re looking for property to rent, something that’s not cheap and not expensive, and you don’t want to share with somebody, there’s not much in the way of options. But, if you look carefully, you’ll notice that there are quite a few posts that advertise garden flats. Now in terms of convenience, price and availability, these are hard to beat, so if you’re looking for a new home, read on.
The Garden Flat
I suppose, there isn’t really a big market for garden flats, they appeal predominately to those of the very young or very old disposition. For the youngsters, they are a lot cheaper than your average flat, they are also quite a bit bigger and allow them to live alone, if they prefer taking that option. For the older generation, the price is equally important, as is the size, but for the most part, the appeal in the garden flat lies in the safety and the knowledge that, should anything happen, there is someone close by who you can call on.
For parents, perhaps those that have a child in university, the garden flat also holds a certain appeal. They like them because they are fairly far away from the usual student housing, often being located in the quieter suburbs. This means that, not only will there be someone to help if anything should go wrong, it also means that their child is far away from the usual distractions associated with living in res, a commune or flats. So if you’re a parent and your child is going to attend a university far away, one that will require accommodation, I would highly recommend that you have a look into renting them a garden flat. It will be cheaper than pretty much all other alternatives, safer and, most importantly, quieter, so they can keep their heads down and focus on their future.
Brilliant in Every Way
So if you’re looking for something that’s right in between being cheap and expensive, if you want something that’s safe and quiet, the garden flat really is the best bet. There are thousands of new garden flats being built as people are looking for ways to add a little extra income to their monthly allowance. Dividing their property and renting a portion out, is probably one of the best ways to do that. If you were wondering where to find garden flats in Durban, have a look at the ones found on Junk Mail.
