PROPERTY SNAPSHOT What’s hot in Mont’Kiara?

•    Today, we continue our focus on Mont’Kiara by looking at price trends and rent for projects in the area.
•    In 3Q2014, the average transacted price for Mont’Kiara was RM685 per square foot (psf), up 7.8% y-y.
•    Based on theedgeproperty.com’s analysis of transactions completed in the 12 months to 3Q2014, Kiara 9 saw the highest price appreciation, up 23.1% y-y to an average price of RM820 psf.
•    This was followed by Vista Kiara, up 17.1% to RM520 psf, Angkupuri, up 16% to RM541 psf and Mont’KiaraPelangi, up 14% to RM605 psf.
•    Among the top four performers, it is interesting to note that Kiara 9 is a relatively new project, completed in 2011, while the others are older ones completed in the mid-1990s, with lower price points.
•    Based on asking rental prices by real estate agents, the project with the highest average monthly rent is Verve Suites at RM5.30 psf. This is likely because the units there are small and came fully furnished by the developer. This works out to an asking rental yield of 6.1%.
