Langebaan Country Estate - Property Market Report 2020

  1. Langebaan Country Estate - Introduction

Langebaan Country Estate is the largest gated estate in Langebaan and is a well-established and upmarket residential suburb centred around a Gary Player golf course. Other amenities offered are cycling and hiking paths, bowls, a swimming pool and a restaurant. The estate is laid out to emphasis space, with many green belts and only a single row of houses along each access road. 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 Langebaan Country Estate one after the most sought-after attractions in the West Coast.

  1. Langebaan Country Estate - Owner Profile / Demographics.

The average household income range in Langebaan Country Estate according to Lightstone is R30 000 to R40 000 which 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 existing owners who have owned their property for 11 or more years are 21% with another 10% having owned property for between 8 and 10 years. This relatively low combined figure of 31% of property owners having owned property for more than 8 years is more of a factor of the newness of the estate, than to owner instability. The recent popularity of the estate is shown by the 47% of owners who have owned property for less than 5 years. Another 21% of owners have owned their property for between 5 and 7 years. The high figure of 68% 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 Langebaan Country Estate, which attract a wide range of prospective Buyers.

What is unusual for Langebaan is that in terms of ownership, the recent seller's profiles are not far removed from existing owner's profiles. The statistics also show a close correlation between the numbers of existing owners and recent sellers in the less than 5-year ownership group, indicating a high turnover for as yet an unknown reason.

The age profile of the stable owners in Langebaan Country Estate shows that the majority of owners, 44%, fall in the mature age group, (50 - 64 years old), followed at 27% by the pensioner group (65 or older).

  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) - 25%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 44%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) - 27%

A comparison of the recent buyers versus the recent sellers shows similar numbers, which indicates that the trend over the past few years of a reducing average age of residents in Langebaan might be slowing down, although there is still a 7% swing in numbers in the two older age groups.
