Positioned between two of the busiest ports in Africa, namely Durban and Richards Bay, the North Coast is one of the fastest growing areas in South Africa. Initially beach holidays put Ballito on the map, but the entire area has now become a sought after "Investment Destination". At first the opening of King Shaka International in 2010 was the catalyst that enabled many business people and investors seeking a change in lifestyle to buy homes on the North Coast but in addition a multitude of entrepreneurs have breathed new and vibrant energy into the area. Many small business and home businesses have blossomed and become the norm, all of which has led to complementary business opportunities.
The upsurge in property sales and the substantial increase in population numbers has also lead to far sighted developers embarking on many new developments. Some 16km of coastline, has been earmarked for massive residential, resort and commercial property developments on the North Coast stretching from The Salt Rock area northwards and the new announcement of the opening of South Africa's First Club Med at Tinley Manor will entrench the popularity of this area even further.
Seeff North Coast, whose operating area stretches from Ballito and all the area northwards extending right up to the Tugela River, recently relocated to new offices at the New Salt Rock Shopping Centre specifically choosing this location to be better positioned to leverage the new development opportunities that have recently been presented to them and to effectively serve the long term demand for real estate on The North Coast.
