Anyway, location may not be the sole reason anymore. Especially for the Klang Valley. First of all, look at all the huge integrated developments being built in new areas. Rawang on one end and Semenyih on the other side for example. (I have no properties in both Rawang or Semenyih) In between, there are many more new choices too and not just the usual few matured neighbourhoods lah. Prices are helping the push for more areas too because scarcity in many matured neighbourhoods would mean fewer qualified buyers too (high price lah). There are now so many expressways you cannot remember their names and MRT Line 2 is being constructed feverishly too. MRT Line 1, if you do not know is already operational. I have taken it many times too.
A better way of understanding where to buy is to ask one additional question beyond just location. “Why do you like that particular location?” Your WHY answer allows you to then step back and start looking at those reasons instead. Usually, it will yield many new results that you have never expected before. Some very valid reasons?
Home is where the heart is. Perhaps it is also important to build the content of that home too and not just that home itself. Even if we are buying a landed property today for example,making sure it is friendly for our parents would be important too. A huge room on the ground floor for example. (NOT the maid’s room okay). Design is important. Do you like a bigger kitchen, living room or bigger bedrooms? Often, it is a choice. It is certainly not a wise move to pay premium on top of premium just to get some place which is steps away from the MRT, unless you are very sure MRT will be your only connection to the world. Oh yeah, should you feel low floors are bad, well…. Haha. Happy searching the WHY to fulfil your home sweet home.
