Calypso Beach - Property Market Report 2020


Calypso Beach - Property Market Report 2020

Calypso Beach Estate in Langebaan is a gated estate perfectly situated on the shore of Langebaan Lagoon with views of Saldanha Bay in the distance. A pathway running in front of the seafront houses is linked to various boardwalks, offering easy access to the beach.

This coupled to its proximity to Laguna Mall, the casino complex and schools have made Calypso Beach a popular estate for those buyers seeking convenience coupled with a relaxed lifestyle.

It is a fairly new estate, being only established in 2004, with the majority of plot sizes being around 350m2, which has led to a large number of the houses being multi-storey, particularly those with sea views. All the plots are privately owned and the estate is managed by a Home Owner's Association. 

2.         Calypso Beach Estate - Owner Profile / Demographics.

The average household income range in Calypso Beach Estate according to Lightstone is R40 000 to R50 000 which average places the owners in the LSM 9 High Group.

The period or tenure of ownership, which is a measure of ownership stability, shows that the existing owners who have owned property for 11 or more years are 37%. This group, and the 5-year ownership group are currently the most fluid, with the middle two groupings being more stable, when comparing with the recent sellers.

As with other estate it is interesting to note that in terms of ownership, the recent sellers with previous ownership of less than 5 years stands at a relatively high 63%, this is likely to be as a resut of profit taking and the selling of vacant lands as owners become aware and concerned of the cost of construction, causing them to cancel their building plans.
