Laguna Sands & Laguna Hills Estate - Property Market Report 2020

Category Town & Suburb Reports - Langebaan

1.         Laguna Sands and Laguna Hills Estate - Introduction

Originally the estate just consisted of Laguna Sands but in 2018 a further extension towards the north western boundary, called Laguna Hills was introduced.

The estate is bordered on the south by the suburb of Skiathos, to the west by Club Mykonos and Paradise Beach Estate, to the east by the Laguna Mall, a medical facility and by La Pinta Lifestyle Village while to the north there is undeveloped land. The estate is accessed controlled via booms, with Laguna Hills having a further set of booms within the estate, and its proximity to the Laguna Mall and to Club Mykonos has led to its popularity.

These attributes, combined with the other attractions in and around Langebaan such as the West Coast National Park, an array of water sports and neighbouring towns such as Darling and Paternoster, have made Laguna Sands Estate a sought after estate in Langebaan.      

2.         Laguna Sands Estate Owner Profile / Demographics.

The period or tenure of ownership, which is a measure of ownership stability, shows that the existing owners who have owned their property for 11 or more years are 15% with another 3% having owned property for between 8 and 10 years. This relatively low combined figure of 18% of property owners having owned property for more than 8 years is discussed in conjunction with the number of recent sellers below. The recent popularity of the estate is shown by the 58% of owners who have owned property for less than 5 years.  Another 24% of owners have owned their property for between 5 and 7 years. The high figure of 82% having owned their properties for less than 7 years is an indication that Langebaan is a growing town with new houses being constantly built, especially in estates such as Laguna Sands Estate, which attract a broad spectrum of potential Buyers due to competitive pricing.

However it is interesting to note that the number of recent sellers who have owned property for less than 7 years stands at 86% which seems to indicate that Laguna Sands is appealing to first time buyers who then use it as a stepping stone after around 5 years to purchase another property.

 The age profile of the stable owners in Laguna Sands Estate shows that the majority of owners, 39%, fall in the mature age group, (50 - 64 years old), followed at 31% by the pensioner group (65 or older).

  • Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) -  10%
  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) -  20%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 39%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) - 31%

The recent buyer's age profile is interesting in that it shows a movement towards younger ownership with only 51% of recent buyers being from the two older age groups compared to the 70% current ownership of the same two age groups.

  • Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) - 21%
  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) -  28%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 44%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) -7%

A comparison of the recent seller's below versus the recent buyer's data shows the volatility in ownership of the two younger age groups with the number of recent buyers being 49% and the number of recent sellers standing at 58%.

  • Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) - 5%
  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) -  53%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 32%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) -11%
