More and more Joburgers moving to Cape Town to settle

Semigration simply means people moving from one part of the country to another in search of a better quality of life.

According to reports, Cape Town's housing market has been flourishing in recent months with more and more family’s moving to the Western Cape.

About 20 - 30% of buyer inquiries are attributed to people from Pretoria and Johannesburg looking to make a move to Cape Town, says Ian Slot, MD of Seeff Atlantic Seaboard.

Johannesburg buyers are prepared to pay prices significantly above 20 - 30 million for property in Cape Town.
