PROPERTY SNAPSHOT What’s affordable in Sentul?

• While the urban renewal of Sentul has been receiving much attention, the neighbourhood is still predominantly a low-to-middle cost market. Similar to Bangsar South in Kerinchi and KL Sentral in Brickfields, the Sentul Masterplan has contributed towards the increasing gentrification of Sentul.

• In 3Q2014, the average price per square foot (psf ) of non-landed properties spiked up 17.5% y-y to hit RM387 psf while the average transacted price of a unit was RM338,000.

• Based on theedgeproperty.com’s analysis of transactions in the 12 months to 3Q2014, almost three quarters (73.3%) of transactions in Sentul were for homes prices below RM400,000.

• In the mid-market segment, the RM600,001 – RM700,000 price range accounted for another 15.2% of transactions.

• Unsurprisingly, the most expensive developments are situated within YTL’s Sentul Masterplan, in Sentul East. They are The Saffron and The Tamarind with an average unit price of RM699,000 and RM655,000, respectively.

• In July 2014, a 1,757 sq ft 3-bedroom unit in The Saffron was sold for RM1.24 million, setting a new price record for the development.

• Another highly priced development is 1 Sentul, located further up north along Jalan Sentul Pasar. The project was completed in 2011 and most units are 3-bedroom layouts of around 1,100 to 1,400 sq ft.

• The most affordable developments are the old flats and low-cost apartments such as the Sentul Murni Flats (RM102,000), Pangsapuri Fasa 3 (RM115,000) and Pangsapuri Bandar Baru Sentul (RM124,000).
