Ridzuan Condominium is a leasehold development located at Jalan PJS 10/11, Taman Sri Subang, in Bandar Sunway. This condominium was completed in 1999, and back then, it was considered a high-end project. Many units were rented by Taylor’s University’s students until the campus relocated to a larger site.

Ridzuan Condominium was considered a good addition to the Selangor property, and it benefited from the property boom and its location. It posed as an ideal investment property for many years.

overview

Despite that, owners still have plenty of students to rent to as there are several other learning institutions nearby, including Monash University Malaysia, The One Academy, INTI International College Subang, and Sunway College.

Ridzuan Condominium provides facilities, where residents can work out within the compounds of the development. The development also provides parking facility and security for its residents.

Overall, one could say that for an older development, it is well kept enough and thus, still offers a nice environment.

Summary

Most owners are investors and not owner-occupiers, and they love Ridzuan Condominium as it has delivered good gross rental yield of 7% to 9% over the years.

ZPPHO.95757887.R800X800

As more developments close to Ridzuan Condominium complete, the returns have reduced, but it still fetches decent gross rental yield. However, tenants might prefer a newer apartment to rent, especially if the monthly rental is similar.

Available listings in PropertyGuru in February 2021 show that the asking monthly rental for 1,190 sq ft units are approximately from RM1,250 to RM1,450, while purchase prices are from RM300,000 to RM368,000.

For units purchased at RM300,000, and rented out at RM1,300 per month, the gross rental yield would be 5.2% per annum.

Figures for a home loan

The below are based on a unit priced at RM300,000.

  • LTV / margin of finance: 90%
  • Down payment (10%): RM30,000
  • Loan amount: RM270,000
  • Loan term: 30 years
  • Interest rate: 3.2%
  • Monthly repayment: RM1,168
  • Approximate required gross annual income: RM47,000*

* Assumptions: You have no other monthly debt obligations, and 30% of gross income will be spent on the housing loan. As a rule of thumb, banks usually loan up to 30% of your gross annual income.
