When the landmark home of the late Dr. Johnny Mosendane — a well known South African figure — sold for 2.5 million rand ($172,484) — it was a record for Soweto residential real estate. This marked a change in the market. More and more suburban Johannesburg residents seek to move back to Soweto. There’s a pent-up desire to return to the vibrancy of the area, and Soweto real estate prices have begun to reflect this. Here are the 12 of the most expensive property listings in Soweto, South Africa.
