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,
