    Rupert, ace your interview and we can help you find a place. I know the area and there's areas you would want to stay and and areas to stay away from. I will ask around, but I'm sure there must be a lot available.
    Ps. What line of work you in?

    Alberton has its up and down areas. Have a look at the election results map and pick a DA area and you will be good to go.

    Been in Alberton all my life, third generation also completed high school at local high school. Will probably also be here till they need to drag me off to the place with the talll trees. But when you know more after your interview you are most welcome to give me a shout, most definitely be able to help, and wife an estate agent dealing in the whole of Alberton will also be able to share some insights.

    Good luck with the interview.

    Post some provisional dates and we can go from there.

    It's just a pity that there aren't that many trails around here.

    As long as its within those 2 DA wards, have a roof that don't leak and secure parking for my car next to the cottage its fine. Preferably W&L inclusive and cheap as possible. I saw a place on the internet for R2100.....not bad but appartment block and no covered or secured parking

    DA wards dont make any difference, I can promise you that. But I hear you. verwoerd park you looking at about 3500 for a cottage. For a flat etc probably 5000 upwards

    I've also stayed here my entire life, stay in Brackenhurst with no issues.

    Rental can be pricey in BHurst a little bit better in BDowns and Verwoed Park etc...

    My MIL has her own Estate Agency here so if you need help etc just shout!
