Langebaan Country Club - Property Market Report 2020

Country Club, a suburb in central Langebaan is well-established, being an older suburb and is bordered on the south by Myburgh Park, to the north by Langebaan Country Estate, to the west by Midtown and on the eastern side by undeveloped farmland.  A Mashie golf course provides a green lung through the middle and its proximity to the central business district, the lagoon, schools, restaurants and the West Coast National Park make it a popular suburb.

The suburb is almost fully developed and vacant erven are become scarce which is expected to lead to an increase in prices in the foreseeable future. The large plots, plus the lack of levies and restrictive design rules, as opposed to the burgeoning gated estates in Langebaan, have maintained the popularity of Country Club.

  1. Country Club Owner Profile / Demographics.

The average household income range in Country Club according to Lightstone is between R20 000 to R30 000 which on average places the owners in the LSM 9 low group.

The period or tenure of ownership, which is a measure of ownership stability, shows that the number of existing owners who have owned their property for 11 or more years is 42%, with another 9% having owned property for between 8 and 10 years. The relatively low combined figure of 51% of property owners having owned property for more than 8 years points to how the ownership profile is starting to change, with many older residents tempted by the increase in prices to place their properties on the market with a view to downsizing. This is supported by the statistic that, of the recent sellers, 45% were owners of the property for more than 11 years.

The relatively high figure of 49% having owned their properties for less than 5 years is an indication that Langebaan is an appealing town, with its proximity to the West Coast Park and the lagoon, plus picturesque surrounding towns such as Paternoster and Jacobsbaai and is attracting a wide range of prospective Buyers.

 The age profile of the stable owners in Country Club shows that the majority of owners, 41%, fall in the mature age group, (50 - 64 years old), followed at 29% by the pensioner group (65 or older)and then the middle aged group (36 - 49 years old) at 26%.

  • Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) -  4%
  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) - 26%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 41%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) - 29%

The recent buyers' age profile is interesting when compared to the stable owners in that it shows a quite dramatic change in the age pattern, where now the recent buyers in the younger two groupings total 45%, compared to the same groupings in the stable owners which total just 30%. The number of recent buyers versus the number recent sellers, in the pensioner group in particular, shows the overall trend of a younger Langebaan population.
