South Africa’s most expensive addresses

New data has revealed which streets in South Africa are the most valuable in each province based on historic and comparative data.

Data provided by Lightstone Property shows that while Clifton Road in Cape Town has had the highest-value sale in the country since 2014 – historical data reveals a more comprehensive story.

Using a valuation model based on repeat sales and comparable sales, Lightstone has determined that Nettleton Road in Clifton is the country’s most historically valuable street, with an average homes sale value of R27.1 million.

The Repeat Sales model takes inflation indices and applies them to a property’s previous sale price to bring the historic purchase price to current value.

The Comparable Sales model attempts to explain a property’s current value by using the recent sale prices of ‘comparable’ properties surrounding the property in question.

Additionally, Lightstone said it makes use of third party physical valuation data where reliable and applies an index on the physical valuation to get it to current value.

All valuations are scored and combined to produce the best estimate of the property’s current value.

Using this model, Lighstone’s data showed that the most valuable addresses are found in the Western Cape, with Joburg’s top streets also making a fairly strong showing.
