Shah Alam’s properties are a viable choice for young families, professionals and students to live, especially for those who work around Klang Valley. Shah Alam’s growing population has fuelled housing demand, which has grown by 38.5% after it gained city status in 2000. Unlike Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya cities which have grown organically, Shah Alam is a structured master-planned city. With different sections developed such as sports, education, government administration centre, and industrial developments; housing developments are generally low density in a pleasant green environment with recreational parks like the Shah Alam National Botanical Gardens.
Shah Alam was once perceived as a Malay area due to large tracts of Malay reserve land here but it has become more multi-racial over the years. Coupled with new housing projects that target young homebuyers, commercial activities have grown and Shah Alam is becoming more vibrant and diverse.
Property With Strategic Location and Amenities
Located about 30 kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur city centre and about 20 kilometres from Port Klang, Shah Alam’s strategic location gives its industrial sector an advantage and as long as industries here thrive, they will have a spillover effect on housing, retail and services, education and leisure and entertainment. Setia City Mall and Central i-City shopping mall offers plenty of entertainment, F&B, and retail offerings while becoming the go-to places for residents in Shah Alam, especially during the weekends. The malls even attract people from Klang and Subang Jaya.
Work-Life Balance Establishment
Shah Alam is well adapted for the work-life balance that it provides, whereby one does not need to travel anything more than 30 kilometres to connect to the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Besides that, housing affordability, availability of jobs and its student population also contribute to strong rental demand in Shah Alam. With established townships or master-planned gated-and-guarded communities, such as Setia Alam, Kota Kemuning, Glenmarie, Section 13 and Seksyen U1, U2, U5, and U8, it has a good yield of investment returns.
Dependable Infrastructures And Facilities
One of the key factors would be an efficient public transport system. The Light Rapid Transit (LRT) connects some areas of Shah Alam through the Gombak-Putra Height Line. Meanwhile, there is also KTM transit available along with Shah Alam through the KL Sentral- Pelabuhan Klang Line. Moreover, there are many schools and educational institutions located in Shah Alam including the Tenby International School in Setia Alam, the Chinese Taipei School Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Rimau, Maz International School in Seksyen 7, R.E.A.L International School, Sekolah Seri Cahaya in Seksyen U9, Management & Science University in Seksyen 13 and KDU University College in Utropolis Glenmarie.
Seems Like A Great City, But…
Don’t get it wrong, Shah Alam is a thriving city with matching credentials, but probably the prices, in general, are climbing up, matching to the likes of properties at Klang Valley/KL areas, if not exceeding it. Is there a possibility to still own a reasonably good terrace house with premium facilities in a nicely managed township with great potential for less than RM500,000?
Yes, there is, and you will find this unbelievable. Head on to https://lbs-alamperdana.com.my/ to find out more about their latest project, Alam Perdana.
