We have 127 units that comprise of spacious bedsitters, one, two or three bedroom units or cottages. Prices range from R200,000 to R975,000 with monthly levies from R960 to R2,300. The units are owned on a life rights basis. When a resident vacates a unit, it’s resold by Methodist Homes. The resident is then refunded a percentage of the sale price dependant on the number of years of occupancy. After five years it’s fixed at 50%. The new selling price is market related, so the refunded amount has in the past exceeded the original purchase price.
The rentals range from R1,880 for a bedsitter to R3,900 for a very large 2 bedroom unit.
