Wayne and Rahnee Skate, the brother
and sister team from PBE Real Estate
present Dean Mann, vice president of
the Cape Paterson Live Saving Club
and eager nippers with a donation that
has gone towards buying new boards
for the club.
“It was great to see over 150 nippers
and approximately 300 parents all at
the beach that day of the cheque hand-
over,” Wayne said.
“It’s a credit to all the people that give
and it’s fantastic for the community.
“It showcases what a great place we
have for all to enjoy.
“We saw many parents in the crowd
that have purchased beach houses over
the 15 years we have been at the Cape
Paterson office so we are very happy to
support the club as they support PBE
“While the donation is only a drop
in the ocean as far as what is needed
for full club room renovations that will
go into the millions of dollars, the club
said all help is much appreciated,”
Wayne and Rahnee are also looking
forward to watching the Aquathon as
it passes the Cape Paterson office on
That event also supports the Cape Pa-
terson Life Saving Club.

A SWIMMING pool is definitely an at-
traction for buyers looking for a home of-
fering great indoor and outdoor living, es-
pecially over the summer selling season.
Many experts agree that a pool can in-
crease your home’s value, but it is difficult
to quantify exactly how much.
This really depends on where you are
living, but for the right property and lo-
cation a pool can be a wonderful addi-
tion as well as provide monetary advan-
tages at sale time.
There are other important aspects you
need to consider such as a pool design
that suits your backyard and doesn’t
overwhelm your garden.
A pool should complement a property,
rather than take attention away from it.
They are considered statement pieces
and should add aesthetic value.
Many pools are now almost an exten-
sion of the house, making them visible
from dining areas and other rooms with-
in the home.
Available in a range of shapes and sizes
to suit most backyards, pools are now
an option even in areas where blocks are
decreasing in size.
In fact, pools can be built on rooftops
particularly in apartment towers - or in
the basements of homes or apartments.
For those considering installing a pool,
it’s important to be aware of all the rel-
evant standards and regulations that ap-
ply to installation.
This is vital, especially in the area of
safety, as owners need to ensure pool
fences are of the highest quality.
Before embarking on any backyard im-
provement projects or pool installation,
owners should bear in mind the danger
of over- capitalising their home.
This is where advice from your real
estate agent on comparable local homes
can assist – those with and without a
