HOME OF­FICES are in de­mand all over Cape Town, but the trend is be­ing seen a lot in ar­eas such as No­ord­hoek, Kom­metjie, St James and Kalk Bay, Con­stan­tia, Bish­op­scourt and Clare­mont, says Gre­eff’s Mike Gre­eff. Ar­eas that are a bit fur­ther away from the city cen­tre or other eco­nomic hubs see home of­fice space par­tic­u­larly sought af­ter.

“Peo­ple who are in­ter­ested in home of­fices gen­er­ally want to work from home for a greater por­tion of their week. They tend to look at a more var­ied range of ar­eas rather than just ar­eas close to the CBD or eco­nomic spa­ces.”

Gre­eff adds that the agency has “nu­mer­ous clients” who have built home of­fices on their prop­er­ties. Granny cot­tages and out­build­ings are also “a pop­u­lar ren­o­va­tion choice to re-pur­pose into home of­fices”, he says, adding that th­ese also add value to prop­er­ties.

“This would be an added ben­e­fit to list fur­ther down the line when home­own­ers may be think­ing of sell­ing.”
