Rightmove Overseas account manager Tom Whale claimed the real estate market in this country usually "attracts a different type of buyer".
This is either expatriates from South Africa intending to return to their homeland or people from colder nations "looking to escape the dreary weather", he continued.
It has a moderate climate comparable to that of southern California and is predominantly Christian in religious beliefs, according to the US Department of State.
Mr Whale pointed out that house prices in the country might not have fallen as heavily as those in other locations, but "the South African rand is at its lowest point since late 2009".
He argued this has made it "a great time to buy a property" in the nation.
The expert said his company currently receives at least 10,000 searches every month from members of the public intending to purchase a house in the country, with the Western Cape its most popular region.
