EXECUTIVE UPDATE  |  October 2013

Dear Subscriber,

“The Cape Town property market has seen a surge of sales in  established areas such as the Atlantic Seaboard and the City Bowl in recent months, with many estate agents in these suburbs reporting shortages of stock and a reduced period of time on the market.

“These trends are good signs for the market as a whole, and have clearly resulted in an increased demand by investors for the kind of high-quality, high-value property product that Signatura has brought to the market so successfully.

“A factor from the international scene that will further enhance these favourable conditions is the delay in tapering the US economic stimulus package, which most analysts expect to be pushed back to March next year or even further – especially given the appointment of Janet Yellen, one of the architects of the package, as chairman of the Federal Reserve in place of Ben Bernanke. This has already strengthened the US stock market and will no doubt have the effect of keeping interest rates down for the foreseeable future. So I would be very surprised to see any interest rate increase in the next 18 to 24 months.

“Overall then, conditions are ideal for the continued re-emergence of the investor buyer in our local property market, which gives me all the more confidence that o products offer incredible value in select, highly sought-after city suburbs – such as the kind we are launching later this week at Ivanette in Vredehoek.

“We should also be announcing a very exciting new development in Green Point soon – watch this space for details!”

Take a solid 1950s art deco apartment block in one of Cape Town’s most desirable City Bowl suburbs, add a large measure of architectural inspiration from the talented Juan Bernicchi, combine with breathtaking views, and season well with all the convenience of 21st century urban living: security, parking, and a first world public transport system. What do you have? Another Signatura recipe for success!

Meet Ivanette, our fifth Vredehoek development. Located  high on the slopes of Table Mountain, Ivanette will offer nine spacious 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and two magnificent 3 bedroom penthouses.

Priced from R1,695 million, the apartments feature sunny north-facing terraces with wonderful views of Table Bay, Signal Hill and Lion’s Head. Two will have private landscaped gardens, and all will include secure and off-street parking.

The  two 1 bedroom apartments are 79 sqm each with terraces of 10 sqm. There are seven 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartments with  living areas of approximately 100 sqm, while the 190 sqm penthouses have three bedrooms each, large terraces and truly spectacular mountain and city panoramas.
