Gumtree Property Tool

Last year I did a Smart Girl's Guide to Gumtree blog post, and today I'll be sharing a new section, The Smart Girl's Guide to Property.

Show of hands how many of you remember when people used to buy the Sunday papers to look for a new house? I personally didn't, (tech kid) but I do remember that was something my Dad did when I was younger.

With newer technology and cooler apps being released daily, finding a new home/flat/office/warehouse to buy or rent couldn't be easier and Gumtree has made it even simpler with their new property tool called the Property Price Checker.

So what is this property price checker and how does it work?

Well, the property tool allows you to choose your desired area you want to live/work in, choose whether you want to buy or rent and then get an idea of the prices properties go for. Which is pretty darn neat! 

This helpful property tool has 100's of properties and even lists all the hot markets and popular area's all around South Africa. 

So, if money was no object and I could stay anywhere I wanted, I figured I'd have some fun with Gumtree's Property Tool and test to see how much dream area's in Cape Town to go for:
First up, the tranquil Oranjezicht. This sought after area with charming cottages and Table Mountain as your backdrop would be the perfect place for a family. 
This ad featuring a modern home available to rent (link) is absolutely stunning! 

Next up, Bantry Bay! One of Cape Town's exclusive area's along the Atlantic Seaboard offering unbelievable views all year round. 

This villa in Fresnaye (link) is AMAZING! You must view that ad... Talk about luxury! The all white interior with the blue from the ocean took my breath away. 
If anyone wants to gift me a few nights away there, I would gladly drop everything to stay in such a beautiful space. 

The tool sure answered any unknown questions and the 'hmm, I wonder how much I'd need to live here' thoughts about how the prices are in certain area's. 

The Gumtree's Property Tool can help so many potential buyers looking for their dream space around South Africa. It's so simple to use and does all the hard work for you. 

So what are ya waiting for? Give it a try and let me know if you do!

  1. This is very helpfull because my husband has been offered a job in Johannesburg and we lived in Cape Town our whole lives and will move in April.
    Thank you, this will be helpfull.

  2. We've recently put our flat for sale and we're starting looking for a house, it's soooo daunting! The competition is unreal. I like going on Gumtree, as it's more updated than Property 24, Private Property, etc. Do you have any tips for buying property? I'm currently in the Northern suburbs, but thinking of relocating to the Southern suburbs (both myself and hubby work in S. suburbs)

    1. Gumtree is so great for browsing for property. Good luck with your search!
