The shift to remote working has given South Africans another reason to consider a move to more affordable, second-tier cities as they can enjoy a better quality of life without sacrificing job opportunities.

The shift to remote working, precipitated by Covid-19, has given South Africans another reason to consider a move to more affordable, second-tier cities as they can enjoy a better quality of life without sacrificing job opportunities.

If you can live anywhere, it makes more sense to live somewhere that’s less expensive, says Clifford Oosthuizen, managing director of Westbrook Property Developments.

“A lower cost of living makes it easier for newcomers to enjoy the urban experience in this next tier of cities, whether they’re tenants or homeowners.”

The pandemic has also emphasised the fundamental importance of location, accessibility and convenience when it comes to property investment.

“Now, more than ever, professional, proactive property management, where safety, s ecurity, cleanliness and hygiene are paramount, will be a key differentiator for both homeowners and tenants who are searching for affordable homes in second-tier cities,” Oosthuizen adds.
