The Claremont – My perfect new flat

During this past vacation in Cape Town (22 - 29 December 2004), I had the good fortune to come across an opportunity to purchase a styly 1-bedroom apartment in a new development. Tired of listening to my fathers persistent pleas to purchase some property and 'get on the ladder', I decided to go have a look at this development in the Claremont area, more specifically, on Claremont main road. This new development, aptly called 'The Claremont', is located between the Pick n' Pay building and the Stadium on Main mall. Construction is set to begin in June 2005, completing sometime between August 2006 and March 2007. Eventhough timelines are a little vague at this point, I am of the opinion the wait will be well worth it. I managed to get the last 1-bedroom apartment in the entire development, it's relatively small at 55m2, but has a good view into the complex, which is completely secure, and comes complete with a parking bay and optional storage room. This is a good first-time investment buy and a perfect lock-up-and-go holiday flat. If anybody is in Cape Town around December 2006, come and visit me at The Claremont, Cape Town. I have space for, oh, maybe one other person 😉

Check out for more details.

UPDATE 25/01/2005: Yay! ABSA Bank has approved my loan application. I am now officially a "home owner"!
