Ballito

Introduction to Ballito

The Dolphin Coast, a stretch of golden beaches embraced by the warm Indian Ocean and rolling sugar cane and coastal forests, stretches from Zimbali in the south to the mighty Tugela River in the north.

Ballito is rapidly becoming more a permanent residential destination than a holiday location as the demand for housing spreads ever further north. Easily accessible to the King Shaka International Airport and with its large estates such as Zimbali and Simbithi, Brentonwood and Dunkirk, Ballito has evolved into a prime residential area, particularly among families and those commuting to work in nearby Umhlanga Ridge or La Lucia Office Estate.

Ballito and surrounds is slowly transforming into residential rather than holiday towns although the mix is presently still about 50:50. A great deal more businesses have opened up in the past five years, including three shopping centres.. The exclusive, gated estates of Zimbali and Simbithi have been extensively marketed and are proving very popular, while new gated communities are springing up, offering an exclusive lifestyle in a secure environment.

For those wanting to acquire leisure property, a weekend retreat or a future or imminent retirement property, there are beachfront apartments, homes and apartments in the gated estates which offer a secure environment for a lock-up-and-go home with quick access to the airport. There are great beaches and festivals which have become synonymous with Ballito, creating an ideal place for young people to holiday. There is a good demand for holiday rental property in the area, which at least takes care of running costs for your investment.

New Ballito Office

While Ballito is considered an upmarket area, the demand is currently being driven from the lower end with prices ranging from R1.5 million to R2 million - as seen by the success of some of the more affordable developments, where one bedroom apartments start at R729 000 and range up to just under R1.5 million for a three bedroom unit. Various other gated estates offer units priced from R3 million to R10 million, while beachfront property and homes in Zimbali range from R3 million to around R12 million for apartments, and homes up to R40 million. There is no doubt we are seeing this area targeted as being attractive for long term investment. Town planning has taken into account growth for the next 15 years, with this is now moving beyond planning and being put forward for development in the long term. There is a need for more affordable housing, a factor which is being considered by developers. However, land is expensive, making it difficult for developers to build lower priced developments.
 
Ballito has a full range of property to suit all requirements while Zimbali and the beachfront offer houses up to R40 million. It is probably easier to say that property is now being valued on a square metre basis. Prices in Zimbali range from R40 000 per square metre down to R15 000 per square metre, while beachfront homes vary from R12 000 up to R30 000 per square metre, and the suburbs from R8 000 to R15 000 per square metre.
