The city of Durban has undergone radical changes in the past 10 years. A large part of the business sector has moved to Umhlanga Ridge in the North, which in turn has exploded with new developments, both commercial and residential.
So it turns out that not all sectors of the housing market have been affected by the property slowdown. Luxury homeowners in the Northern suburbs of Durban are biding their time and getting their asking prices…eventually.

Westville, too, has had a commercial explosion, bringing the office to the worker by developing a plethora of small office parks and readily-accessible shopping facilities, which has continued to drive demand for mid-priced properties.

In the lower price bracket, Chatsworth and Queensburgh are popular among blue-collar workers because of their proximity to the industrial areas located south of Durban. Priced-to-sell properties coupled with the banks’ willingness to grant bonds have, despite the recession, continued to boost sales in this area.
