Investing in property for sale in Johannesburg (GPS: 26°12′16″S / 28°2′44″E) puts investors at the epicentre of trade, business and a cosmopolitan urban lifestyles. As South Africa’s largest city, it is situated in the provincial capital of the country; Gauteng. This region is also home to the capital of SA in Pretoria. This is where you’ll find the constitutional court, also very accessible from Johannesburg. This is also why it’s considered the wealthiest province in the country, largely thanks to its rich mining history and vigorous commerce.
Established in 1886, the area of Johannesburg was originally inhabited by indigenous San People. However, when gold was discovered in the Witwatersrand area in 1884 it lead to an influx of people descending to the area – which would become known as the Witwatersrand Gold Rush. With so many people coming in to get their fair share of the fortune, it became necessary to establish a government and name for the popular area.
This bustling city is governed by the City of Johannesburg Municipality. The CBD spans approximately 334.81km² while the Metro is 1,644.96km² - this size is due to the poor planning that went into the establishment of the town, as it was forced to grow rapidly during the Gold Rush. However, contemporary developers and urban planners have done a wonderful job of creating amazing residential spaces in between bustling centres of commerce and commute. The massive city used to be made up of eleven regions but now, since restructuring in 2006, properties in JHB are now divided into seven regions which are lettered A to G.
Region A (formerly region 1 and 2): Diepsloot, Midrand, Fourways, Sunninghill, Woodmead,
Region B (formerly region 3 and 4): Ward 90, Rosebank, Bryanston, Randburg,
Region C (formerly region 5): Bram Fischerville, Thulani, Florida,
Region D (formerly region 6 and 10): Soweto only
Region E (formerly region 7): Parkwood, Highlands North, Alexandra, Wynberg, Morningside
Region F (formerly 8 and 9): Glenvista, Ormonde, City Deep, Benrose, Kensington
Region G (formerly 11): Lenasia, Eldorado Park, Protea
