If you are looking to invest in an overseas residential property or simply searching for that dream holiday home abroad then buying property in South Africa could be just what you’ve been looking for. South Africa, or to give its formal title the Republic of South Africa lies at southernmost tip of the African continent, and boasts over 2,700km of incredible coastline on to both the Indian Ocean and South Atlantic. On land it is bordered by several countries including Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and Swaziland.
South Africa, in comparison to popular European destinations such as Spain and Portugal, is not renowned for luring hordes of would-be foreign property investors to its shores. However, that may soon change.
