Langebaan Country Club - Property Market Report 2021

1. Country Club - Introduction
 
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 have 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.
 
2. Country Club - Owner Profile / Demographics.
 
The average household income range in Country Club according to Lightstone is between R44 000 and R57 500 which on 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 number of existing owners who have owned their property for 11 or more years is 43%, with another 10% having owned property for between 8 and 10 years. The combined figure of 53% of property owners having owned property for more than 8 years is 2% higher than in 2020.
 
The relatively high figure of 47% having owned their properties for less than 7 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. 
 
Of the recent sellers there were two ownership group with significant changes over the past year, namely sellers of properties which they had owned for more than 11 years reduced from 45% to 39%, and sellers of properties which they had owned for less than 5 years increased from 28% to 44%.

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 30% by the pensioner group (65 or older) and then the middle aged group (36 - 49 years old) at 26%. This represents minimal change from the previous year.
 
- Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) - 3%
- Middle Aged: (36-49 years) - 26% 
- Mature: (50-64 years) - 41%
- Pensioner: (65 and older) - 30%
 
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 48%, compared to the same groupings in the stable owners which total just 29%. 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.

The reason for the sharp increase in sales volumes can be attributed to the riots up country, which caused an influx of upcountry buyers to the perceived more safe Western Cape and the influence that Covid had on employers and employees discovering that employees could do a considerable amount of their daily work from home, supported by the fact that most of the estates in Langebaan have access to fibre connectivity.
