The Balize Private Estate benefits from layered security as it is situated in the managed Sibaya Coastal Precinct plus has the extra security of the Balize Private Estate.

New townhouses and apartments nationally account for 60% of all new stock on the South African property market and this clearly indicates an increasing demand for sectional title homes, especially where security is featured.

An FNB Property Barometer report says the 60% is a massive increase of almost 50% in the past three and a half years for this sector; it was previously reported as 29% in 2015 and 13% in 2000.

The latest data shows national development of new stock to feed this growing demand is on an upward trajectory and experts say the trend is being spearheaded by homeowners’ need for greater security.

“At the forefront of the home buyers’ market are sectional title homes with added security that do not compromise a modern lifestyle,” says Peter Cameron, Balize Private Estate sales director.

The need for greater security “has led to an increasing demand for properties fitted with smart-ready technology”. In a smart home you can monitor, measure and control various security aspects via smart appliances through a home app on your phone or device.

Being able to control and monitor security access remotely is a game-changer for homeowners, says Cameron. “The smart-ready home has many benefits for the homeowner and can potentially increase the property’s market value by much as 7%.”

From a smart-ready house, homeowners can manage and monitor electricity and water consumption and also have peace of mind that wherever they may be, their home is safe.

Speaking about Balize Private Estate, Cameron says all cabanas, villas and penthouses are fitted with smart-ready technology “because maintaining a premium and safe lifestyle is fundamentally imperative”.
