Durban Property To Let and Durban Property For Sale
Property to let and for sale in Durban
In my search recently, to find a new home for my family, I was extremely frustrated in my search for a suitable property in the Durban area. The reason for my frustration was that every time I used the internet to find what was available in the market place, the same properties kept showing up in the results or that the same property companies offering property for sale or for lease, kept showing up in the results.
The results were not solving my problem to find a new home. I decided to set out and design a new directory which would bring all the different property companies into one place where someone could browse each companies offering and get the entire broader picture of what was available without being prejudiced by the different spending and marketing budgets that each estate agency had allocated. The result was www.Durban-Property-Searcher.co.za.
Is this your new home ?
So How did we find a Durban property
The Durban Property Searcher website encompassed most of the industries that are associated with the Durban Property Market in general and enabled us to use the Residential Property button on the home page to find an array of companies that were offering Durban Property for lease or purchase.
The fact that the website was not influenced by any agenda or affiliation to a particular estate agency was great in providing a comprehensive list of all the estate agents in the Durban Area.
Tired of living in the city?
Other Searches for different types of Durban Property
We soon realised that the different searches carried out in our design phase also resulted in a very limited and frustrating presentation of options.
We decided to set about covering as many aspects of the property market that would provide convenience to the public in their search for property and to solve some of the frustrations that we had experienced.
Our first step was to set up a page with all the residential companies offering any type of property for sale or rent in the Durban and surrounding districts. The second step was to carry out the same action for the commercial and industrial property sector, the investment property sector, the auction property sector and also a few links to overseas property in case anyone was interested in assessing the overseas markets.
What other property assistance would be needed
So now we had the bases covered as far as being able to use one central place to find a Durban Property.
We thought about what other types of services, a property searcher would need and came up with the list in the toolbar as follows.
Municipal Information on Durban Property
- eThekwini Online - Home Page
The official site of the city of Durban, it contains information about all aspects of Durban including: city council and governance, administration, tourism, business and local communities,aerial photo maps,whats on and any town planning needed
An expert in market rentals and sales estimates
- Rode & Associates Property Economists, Consultants and Valuers
Rode & Associates specialize in property economics and property consultancy and is also one of the largest independent property valuation (real estate appraisal) firms in South Africa.Would we need to see if the price offered was market related.
What if our estate agent was not being fair
- EAAB | Home
Could we file a complaint against an estate agent or the company they worked for.Yes, there is in fact a governing body for estate agents.
We heard the International Airport was moving
- Dube Tradeport
How would the location of the Durban International Airport affect our property values.Where is it and how far have they progressed in preparation for the Soccer World Cup in South Africa. Do i really want planes flying over our new house.
So we found a home.Are our attorneys reputable.
- Kwa-Zulu Natal Law Society
The KwaZulu-Natal Law Society regulates the attorneys' profession in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and enhances the prestige and dignity of the profession. It protects the public by providing effective control of legal conduct.
Is our home safe to live in
- National Home Builder's Registration Council
We now know that there is a National Home Builders Registration Council and we can check and see if the developer or builder we are using is registered and qualified to build our home. We even recieve a certificate of safety compliance.
What history did our hometown Durban have
- Facts About Durban - Home Page
Facts About Durban is published by FAD Publishing and is a website containing lots of information on the City of Durban, South Africa. It's got a timeline of events in the city's history and many other interesting and little-known facts and Old Photo
There was still something missing
What about the building trade and building related services for the DIY enthusiast.
We had to include a directory of the building trade and make it simple enough to use.
So we did just that. A directory of all the websites of companies who offered security, flooring,surveyors,builders,decor,shopfitting,electrical,plumbing,painting,architects,pools,paving,hardware stores,gardening,airconditioning, roofing,legal and even a place where a company could be formed cheaply for buying for that family trust or company.
So it was finally complete
Every day we find ourselves using the website now in our search for new guttering for projects, paint specials and even our next project property for putting our modernistic interpreatation on before returning it to the marketplace for a happy new home owner and looking for the next Durban Property for sale or to let out to a happy tenant.
I hope that you find the site as helpful as we do and will suggest any additions to make it easier using it as a directory.
