Located next to Shah Alam’s Section 17, Section 2, around 5km to I-City and about 9km from Klang, Section 16 has a good mix of residential, commercial and light industrial projects.
It is also nearby Universiti Teknologi Mara Shah Alam (about 3km drive) and the Selangor State administration centre in Section 14 (around 3.5km away) which support property demand in the area.
According to Royston Lau from Maxland Real Estate Agency who concluded the deal, Section 16 is a mature residential area with amenities such as eateries, super markets, clinics, banks and other businesses.
“Shops in Section 16 are always in demand due to the growing population and the area’s easy access to highways and main roads,” said Lau.
The double-storey intermediate shophouse located in Jalan Sempadan was sold for RM830,000.
“The buyer has been renting the unit for many years. As his business grew, he decided to buy the shop,” he added.
The seller did not mind letting it go at a slightly below market price as he knew the buyer and he wanted to cash out. Besides, the property has a remaining lease of 57 years.
Recent listings showed that shophouses in the area are asking around RM880,000 and RM890,000.
EdgeProp.my data showed that three shop units in Section 16 were sold at an average price of RM983,333 or RM703 psf in 2018.
