Aston Kiara 3, Mont Kiara

  • 6 April 2021

Aston Kiara 3 is a freehold condominium that is tucked away at the end of Jalan Kiara 3, Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. This project was developed by the HR Group, and it was completed in 2011.

Currently, the only way from Mont’Kiara to Segambut Dalam is Jalan Kiara 3, where one will pass by a mix of modern towers and old kampung houses. Despite still being within Mont’Kiara, Jalan Kiara 3 has been named Jalan Segambut Dalam as it is closer to Jalan Duta.

Aston Kiara 3 is a freehold condominium that is tucked away at the end of Jalan Kiara 3, Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur.

As more developments pop up along Jalan Kiara 3, the road is getting crowded. Jalan Kiara 4 will also lead to Segambut Dalam, and some believe this will ease the traffic congestion in the area.

Mont’Kiara remains an established and self-contained area, with a mixture of international and local communities. With new developments coming in, there’s a wide range of homes for buyers and tenants to choose from.

Through the property market’s ups and downs, Mont’Kiara has been resilient. Most of the properties in the area have seen a substantial increase in prices, generating capital appreciation for purchasers.

Location

Aston Kiara 3 is sited at the end of Jalan Kiara 3, and it is adjacent Impian Villa, Kiara 1888, Kiara 9, One Kiara, and Ceriaan Kiara. The development is easily accessible via SPRINT Expressway, Federal Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), and Jalan Duta.

Aston Kiara 3 is sited at the end of Jalan Kiara 3, and it is adjacent Impian Villa, Kiara 1888, Kiara 9, One Kiara, and Ceriaan Kiara

Other than its strategic location, the area is surrounded by plenty of amenities. There are several shopping options, countless eateries, petrol stations, places of worship, banks, clinics, gyms, convenience stores, and schools in the area.

Developments with ‘Kiara’ in their names have spilled over into areas like Segambut Dalam. This is the case for Aston Kiara 3. The low-density high-end Aston Kiara 3 is surrounded by Segambut Dalam’s original settlements, and that lends quite a stark contrast.

When one travels from Mont’Kiara into Jalan Kiara 3, one will see a change in scenery. It changes from high-end, non-landed properties and the Garden International School, to some traditional village homes, as one moves past Kiara 1888.

This part of Mont’Kiara is called Kampung Segambut Dalam. The road’s name has been changed to Jalan Segambut Dalam, even though it is still within the Mont’Kiara boundary.

Analysis

As highlighted, Aston Kiara 3 is surrounded by villages, and coupled with the access road, these could be a turn-off for some. Plus, it is at the end of Jalan Kiara 3. That said, it is a low density development, so that could be considered a big plus for some others.

Level 3 houses its recreational and facilities, which has a swimming pool, squash court, gymnasium, cafeteria and sauna comprise recreational facilities such as a swimming pool, squash court, gymnasium, cafeteria, reading room, and sauna.

With Mont’Kiara becoming popular and hence congested, many developers have moved to its northern side. Some developers have named their projects as being in Mont’Kiara North, to ride on the popularity of that area.

However, properties bordering Segambut Dalam (which is where Aston Kiara 3 is), might not carry the same prestige as those in the heart of Mont Kiara. The other concern for Mont Kiara could be the shrinking expatriate community, which is usually the target market for sales and rental.

The sale price of a 1,518 sq ft unit listed on PropertyGuru in March 2021 is from RM590,000 to RM630,000. Meanwhile, rent is between RM2,400 and RM2,800 per month. Based on these figures, the approximate gross rental yield is as below:

  • Purchase price: RM600,000
  • Rent out: RM2,600 per month
  • Gross rental yield: About 33% per annum

Summary

Traffic, traffic, traffic. It’s the never-ending grouse of those living in hot and popular areas. Traffic congestion continues to be the main put-off to Mont’Kiara’s appeal due to its narrow roads, limited access points, ongoing construction work, and school peak hours.

Level 3 houses its recreational and facilities, which has a swimming pool, squash court, gymnasium, cafeteria and sauna comprise recreational facilities such as a swimming pool, squash court, gymnasium, cafeteria, reading room, and sauna.

Despite its traffic woes, Mont’Kiara is still an attractive upmarket, well-connected and self-sustaining township that grew out of a rubber estate with a single access road.

Mont Kiara is less than a 15-minute drive to Kuala Lumpur city centre and Petaling Jaya. The only drawback seems to be the lack of a train station nearby.

If you’re interested in a 1,518 sq ft unit at Aston Kiara 3 that’s priced at RM600,000, here are its estimated loan figures.

  • LTV / margin of finance: 90%
  • Down payment (10%): RM60,000
  • Loan amount: RM540,000
  • Loan term: 30 years
  • Interest rate: 3.2%
  • Monthly repayment: RM2,291
  • Approximate required gross annual income: RM94,000*

You can use these calculators to adjust the figures accordingly.

Pro tip: Know your Debt Service Ratio (DSR)!

DSR is a method used by banks in Malaysia to calculate whether you can afford the loan you’re applying for. To calculate your Debt Service Ratio (DSR), refer to the FREE PropertyGuru Loan Pre-Approval tool. It has a 99.9% accuracy, which greatly helps in avoiding loan rejections.

* Assumptions: No other monthly debt obligations, and 30% of gross income spent on the home loan. As a rule of thumb, banks usually loan up to 30% of your gross annual income.
