PROPERTY SNAPSHOT 1: Kajang gains momentum

Kajang properties

This is the first in a series of four snapshots on Kajang. Look out for part two tomorrow.

•    This week the spotlight falls on non-landed residential properties in Selangor’s Kajang and the adjacent Bandar Sungai Long. The study covers Jade Hills in the west to Taman Kajang Perdana in the east, from Kajang 2 in the south to Bandar Sungai Long in the north.

•    Based on theedgeproperty.com’s analysis of transactions, the secondary prices of non-landed residential properties in Kajang/Bandar Sg Long have been steadily rising since 2013. The average price hit a peak of RM227 per square foot (psf) in 3Q2014, up 17.7% y-y from RM193 psf in 3Q2013. This follows a growth of 12.9% y-y in the preceding year.

•    Meanwhile the total transaction volume for the 12 months to 3Q2014 declined 17.4% y-y from 1,141 to 943 units.

•    Interestingly, Kajang is home to many exclusive gated-and-guarded residential estates. It  has many international schools and private hospitals to cater to the demands of the upper-middle class. As a result, the recent high-rise developments here are mainly upmarket ones, setting new benchmark prices which gives a boost to the local secondary market as well. Among the upcoming developments in Kajang include Saville @ Kajang and MKH Boulevard by MKH Berhad as well as Jadite Suites by Gamuda Land.

•    Kajang will become an increasingly viable place to live with the completion of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line due in 2017. Kajang is set to receive three MRT stations at Saujana Impian, Bandar Kajang and Jalan Reko.
