Edusentral Setia Alam Property Analysis

A key target market for Edusentral Setia Alam would be young urbanites, both single and married. These young urbanites working in places like Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, and even Kuala Lumpur and looking for a property that is away from the city yet is easily commutable would find Edusentral Setia Alam a good fit due to its easy access to major highways. The targeted buyers for Edusentral Setia Alam would fall under the middle-income earners (M40) category in Malaysia to ensure that the monthly housing loan instalments fall within one-third of total income. As of 2020, the M40 income earners are classified as having a minimum total income of RM 4,850 per month.
Parents with school-going children would appreciate the number of reputable educational institutions in the vicinity. For singles, the nearby Setia City Mall would provide ample of things to do during the weekends. With a strategic location within the well-planned township of Setia Alam, residents will enjoy access to ample amenities as well as beautifully landscaped parks for recreational activities.
The studio units would be a good first property for the young urbanites while the larger ones would be a great option for a small family with children. With its location between larger towns such as Petaling Jaya and Klang, young urbanites with parents living in the larger towns would find Edusentral Setia Alam a good fit as it will allow them to live independently while still at a commutable distance from family homes. Even empty nesters from the larger towns and looking to live in a smaller property would find Edusentral Setia Alam a suitable choice.
The dual key feature would also make these units very suitable for investors. Furthermore, there is also a high potential for capital appreciation upon the completion of all development phases in Edusentral Setia Alam.
|wdt_ID||Development||Built-Up Size (sq ft)||Selling Price||Price PSF||Land Tenure||Completion Year|
|1||Edusentral Setia Alam||498 - 836||From RM 368,000||RM 739||Freehold||Stanford and Yale Suites (Phase 2) – Q3 2021
Cornell/Imperial Suites – 2022
|2||Setia City Residences||858 - 1,207||From RM 557,700||RM 650||Freehold||2019|
|3||Trefoil Setia Alam||485 - 791||From RM 272,000||RM 561||Freehold||2015|
|4||Suria Residence, Bukit Jelutong||600 - 1,200||From RM 428,000||RM 713||Freehold||2017|
Trefoil Setia Alam is a development which focuses more on Small Office, Flexible Office (SOFO) units. Therefore, while the built-up size range of Trefoil Setia Alam is similar to Edusentral Setia Alam, however, for the target market of Edusentral Setia Alam which are primarily young urbanites and growing families with children, the SOFO units would not be a suitable living choice.
In comparison to Setia Residence and Suria Residence Bukit Jelutong, there is only a slight difference in terms of price per square feet. Furthermore, Edusentral Setia Alam is the newest development compared to the other two. Edusentral Setia Alam also has good potential for price appreciation upon completion of all the development phases of Edusentral.
