Seringin Residences is tucked away within the established Happy Gardens neighbourhood in Kuala Lumpur. Despite its quiet location, all major highway are a short drive away, and the established neighbourhood offers many facilities and conveniences such as restaurants, banks, commercial offices, schools, and hospitals.

The project is developed by See Hoy Chan Sdn Bhd, developer of Damansara Uptown in Petaling Jaya. Seringin Residences sold 75% of its units during its launch in 2011.

According to the developer, about 60% of the units was sold to registrants before the official launch, while another 15% was sold during the launch. They also shared that the buyers are a mixture of investors and owner-occupiers. Those who purchased the smaller units are mostly investors.

Seringin Residences also includes a 2-storey Sustainable Application of Green Energy (S.A.G.E.) building that features green building technologies, eco-friendly fittings, and an organic roof garden. The building is aimed at creating greater awareness among the public about energy and environmental conservation.

Located on a 1.2-acre site, the building housed the project’s sales gallery and show units but has been turned into a community centre for residents.

Other facilities at Seringin Residences include a 3-tier security, swimming pool, gymnasium, and racquet sports courts. The 6.4-acre freehold condominium has a gross development value (GDV) of over RM500 million, and was completed in 2015.

Analysis

Seringin Residences is considered a coveted development due to its location, which is close to the city centre and many amenities. Units were sold out long before the condominium was completed, and majority of the buyers were suspected to be property investors. The completion was approximately 7 months late.

SAGE night

Most units at Seringin Residences enjoy views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. The developer shared that the smaller units were easier to sell, as buyers found it more difficult to finance the bigger units during its launch.

The prices of larger units have already gone beyond RM1 million which is a record price for condos in Old Klang Road.

Available listings in PropertyGuru in February 2021 show that the asking monthly rental for 1,523 sq ft units are from RM2,500 to RM3,000, while purchase prices are asking from RM912,000 to RM970,000.

For units purchased at RM925,000, and rented out at RM2,700 per month, the gross rental yield would be 3.5% per annum.
