Analysis

Even though the demands for the high-rise residential developments are rather high, some investors have steered away from the area due to the price tags, as they could venture to other established areas such as Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas, and Bangsar. Besides that, with the many amenities there, it is no wonder that the area is constantly packed with people and traffic.

Available listings in PropertyGuru in July 2021 show that the asking monthly rental for 1,384 sq ft units at LaCosta are from RM3,000 to RM3,500, while purchase prices are asking for about RM865,000. Thus, units rented out at RM3,300 per month could fetch an approximate gross rental yield of 4.57% per annum.

Summary

Sunway South Quay is a self-contained development. It will be similar to the Mines Resort with an international school, shopping mall, convention centre, and residences surrounding a lake. Sunway South Quay is set to be better due to the facilities and amenities there. Those who love living in the Bandar Sunway area, would certainly love living in Sunway South Quay. The key concern would be traffic, but that’s to be expected for any popular or burgeoning areas.
