As the central hub of the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality and the official home of the South African government, Pretoria has always been synonymous with leaders.
The establishment of Pretoria in 1855 was marked by declaring it the new capital of South Africa and is considered the turning point for the Boer’s of the Great Trek, marking the end of their movements. Steeped in South African war history from both Boer Wars, you can still find many forts and ruins which were built for defence against the British. In October 1931, Pretoria achieved city status and is still one of the three South African administrative capitals.
The city of Pretoria measures approximately 687,54km², while the metro is roughly 6,298km². The residential suburbs of the city are lined with the iconic purple Jacaranda trees, which add to the charming atmosphere of these areas. Houses for sale in Pretoria are very appealing to growing families, retirees and young professionals alike. The suburbs in Pretoria are divided into 5 regions:Pretoria East, Pretoria North East, Pretoria North West, Pretoria Central Western, Centurion,
Each of these regions have their own affluent suburbs within them and are centrally located to major highways that lead in and out of Pretoria towards Johannesburg and beyond. This makes residential investments here the gateway to the rest of the province’s rich natural splendour and bustling commerce alike.
From places of worship and research hubs to National Departments of government and commerce, Pretoria is home to a cosmopolitan of integral services, amenities and places of interest, making it a comprehensive location for property investments.

As a central business and student hub, the recent buyers statistics show that just over 30% of new property owners are between the ages of 18 and 35.
