Towards the end of 2020, the rise of the semigration trend, identified by property developers and researchers in SA, involves moving from one province to another within the same country. Covid-19 and working remotely or from home, has forced many to reconfigure their quality of life and living environments.

For some, it’s a way to escape from concrete jungles and be closer to nature, for others a desire to slow down and lead a quieter life surrounded by family and friends.

Popular areas to semigrate locally include desirable coastal areas

Historically a holiday attraction, KwaZulu-Natal’s North Coast has experienced a boom in residential property investments and has become one of SA’s favourite places to live. Year-round warm weather, a relaxed lifestyle, close-knit family-style communities, home to small towns, access to pristine beaches, and its proximity to King Shaka International Airport makes the increase in development and investment in this region no surprise.

Picking up on this trend and equipped with research compiled by Rainmaker Marketing, the Devmco Group worked on transforming the Sibaya Coastal Precinct’s landscape from normal to extraordinary with a first-of-its-kind seaside neighbourhood, Salta Sibaya. The precinct sits above Umdloti, forming part of node 6 of the precinct holistic development plan.

Salta Sibaya sets the precedent for how South Africans will live

Set within a vibrant mixed-use development, Salta Sibaya offers a bespoke retail and commercial element within walking distance of homes. Soon to be home to Spar, Tops, Woolworths, Pump Track and many of SA’s much-loved brands, it will have myriad shopping experiences in its dynamic commercial sector.

“When we embarked on this project, our vision was to take the Sibaya lifestyle to the next level by creating a dynamic mixed-use development, where residents live moments away from their workplace, allowing them to spend more time on life’s pleasures: braais with family, trail walks throughout the conservancy and estate, and breathtaking views,” says Devmco director Charles Thompson.

“Salta Sibaya gives you a variety of residential opportunities, with spacious, pet-friendly, free-standing coastal homes starting from R2.95m, perfect for those who want to semigrate to KZN.” 

Choose a double-storey or single-storey piece of land and build your coastal family home or invest in one of the turn-key home designs. The homes range from R2.95m for two bedrooms, R3.3m for three bedrooms, and R3.9m for four bedrooms.

“Having been part of the Sibaya evolution from the outset, we’re extremely proud to be part of the Salta Sibaya launch. We’ve worked closely with Devmco to create a dynamic product tailor-made for the Sibaya Coastal Precinct. Since the pre-launch kicked off in December 2020, we’ve been overwhelmed with the response — 75% of the leads generated are from KZN, and 25% from outside KZN,” says Stefan Botha, Rainmaker marketing director.

Salta Sibaya launches on March 13 2021.
