Although the establishment of Soweto is directly linked to the discovery of gold and the area was often seen as a place where the poor lived, this is no longer the case.
Today Soweto has 37 suburbs and there are some truly remarkable property opportunities in many of them. In addition to this there is still a lot of opportunity for development which means that property values in Soweto are continuously on the rise. Soweto is home to around 40% of the total Johannesburg population and the 37 suburbs within Soweto all have different demographics.
Increased house prices in Soweto demonstrate an influx of middle class residents and affordable property prices and easy access to the Johannesburg City Centre adds to the desirability to live here. Many different and entrepreneurial businesses have taken off in Soweto and have bettered the lifestyle of many residents. This in turn has caused property prices to rise.
Soweto has also become a big tourist attraction and with this property values have increased year-on-year. Completed developments, the upgraded road infrastructure, the Rea Vaya bus system and new commercial infrastructures have all added to making Soweto a place people want to invest in.
