Sunset Estate - Property Market Report 2020

Sunset Estate in Langebaan is an access-controlled estate adjacent to the northern border of Langebaan Country Estate and has Blue Lagoon Estate across the road on its northern border with Waterfront Estate being across another road on its western border. Conveniently Sunset Estate has a pedestrian gate which offers access to the public parking area between Waterfront Estate and Calypso Beach Estate and from then on to the beach, which is less than 500 metres in total from Sunset Estate.

This coupled to its proximity to Laguna Mall, Curro School and the centre of Langebaan, plus its relatively small size and simple road layout has made Sunset Estate a popular estate for those buyers wishing to enjoy the West Coast lifestyle from a secure and conveniently situated base.

It is a fairly new estate, being only established in 2005, with the majority of plot sizes being around 400m2, and the estate's building rules have resulted in a pleasant blend of unique designs while still maintaining a central design theme. 

  1. Sunset Estate Owner Profile / Demographics.

The average household income range in Sunset Estate according to Lightstone is R40 000 to R50 000 which 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 existing owners who have owned property for 11 or more years are 15%. This figure has dropped considerably from 2018 when the corresponding figure was 23%. Interestingly the existing owners who have owned their property for less than 5 years has also decreased from 2018, from 65% down to 56%.

The recent buyers' and recent sellers' age profile shows that the average age of a property owner in Sunset Estate is moving towards the middle age group with the breakdown being tabled below. What however must be borne in mind when reviewing these statistics is the relatively few transactions, just 7, on which the data is based, which can present swings which can be perceived as significant, whereas the data set is too small to make meaningful assumptions.
