In the hopes of igniting further progression and positivity through celebrating Newcastle, The Newcastillian – Online News touches on how people are choosing to throw away mainstream city life for a more relaxed country life.
According to RealNet Estate Agency Group’s Managing Director, Gerhard Kotzé, the lockdown has seen a change in South Africa’s property buying. One of the biggest trends now is the migration away from big cities to smaller towns along the coast and in more rural settings.
Boasting mass development, an award-winning municipality and a substantially lower crime rate than found in larger cities, this centre point between provinces has transformed into a prime choice for those relocating, looking for a more fulfilling life. Offering people the opportunity to experience a more enriched environment, where family time is prized, and community culture creates a sense of belonging and security. In summary, As stated by the Newcastle Municipality, “Our city is one of the fastest-growing cities in South Africa.”
To affirm the above, here is a compilation of good news articles:
