Langebaan Middedorp - Property Market Report 2020

Middedorp, or Midtown, is the oldest suburb in Langebaan, and certainly in terms of the property market, the most diverse. It is centrally located and bordered on the south by Myburgh Park, to the north by Langebaan Country Estate and Leentjiesklip Resort, on the eastern side by Country Club and most importantly on the western side by the lagoon. The southern portion of Middedorp houses the main business area of Langebaan, of which the most important thoroughfare is Bree Street, which hosts various shops, restaurants, the municipal offices and provides access directly to the main beach which is renowned for its kite surfing.

Interspersed among the more modest houses and quaint cottages along the shore side are a growing number of designer houses, which leads to a disparity in lagoon side prices. This disparity is also reflected in the variation of prices between southern and northern properties, with the southern properties, being in a perceived to be more affluent area, commanding higher prices when compared to the more modest, and older dwellings in the northern side.

The suburb is almost fully developed and vacant erven are few and far between which has led to an increase in prices, with lagoon side properties in particular commanding premium prices.

  1. Middedorp Owner Profile / Demographics.

The average household monthly income range in Middedorp, 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 64%, with another 7% having owned property for between 8 and 10 years. Compared to the other suburbs in Langebaan the combined figure of 71% of property owners having owned property for more than 8 years points is significantly high than the average. However, as with the trend in the rest of Langebaan 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, 60% were owners of the property for more than 11 years.

What is also different from the normal trend in Langebaan is that the number of recent sellers who have owned their property for less than 5 years is relatively high at 37%, which is unusual in that in Langebaan buyers tend to hold on to their purchases for a longer period of time.

The age profile of the stable owners in Middedorp shows that the majority of owners, 43%, fall in the pensioner group (65 or older), followed by the mature age group (50 - 64 years old), then the middle-aged group (36 - 49 years old). The combined figure of 81% for the older two age groups is 9% higher than the average for Langebaan.

  • Youth/Adult: (18-35 years) - 3%
  • Middle Aged: (36-49 years) - 16%
  • Mature: (50-64 years) - 38%
  • Pensioner: (65 and older) - 43%

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 middle two groupings total 82%, compared to the same groupings in the stable owners which total just 54%. 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.
