In 2019, OSK Property Holdings Bhd launched the third and final last phase of You City development in Cheras 9th mile. Named You City III Cheras, it is a transit-oriented development (TOD) with a direct link-bridge to MRT Taman Suntex to meet the increased interest from homeowners to be close to public transport.

This development is envisioned to promote sustainable urban growth in the surrounding neighbourhood of Cheras 9th mile. It aims to create vibrant communities with the convenience of modern lifestyle amenities, with shorter commuting distances within the Klang Valley.

You City III forms part of the 20-acre, RM1.2 billion You City township, which is expected to have a population of 5,000 once it is completed. This mixed-use development has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM780 million and it features a shopping mall and serviced apartments. The township’s previous launches, You Residences and You Vista, are fully sold.

You City III is built on a 5.5-acre freehold parcel and is scheduled to be completed in 2023. The developer noted that You City III’s price and strategic location would attract both first-time homebuyers and second-generation residents in the surrounding area, especially young adults, working professionals and families.

The developer is also confident that You City III will perform well, just like the previous launches. The lifestyle is constantly changing and connectivity is becoming more important to buyers and investors.

You City III will have a clean and energetic feel, to appeal to the younger target market. Thus, layouts are designed to be modern and clean. The developer is offering one to four car park bays, depending on the unit.

You City III will have a 2.4-acre facilities podium on Level 10, and it includes a rain shower pool, potpourri garden, hydrotherapy spa, parcourse area, half basketball court, swimming pool, library, reading pods, karaoke, treehouse playground, and function hall, among others. The developer is selective when it comes to the facilities.

Ample of facilities are available at You City III.

They believe that it is best to omit facilities that are seldom used to keep the maintenance fee reasonable.

You City III also comprises a 3-storey hybrid mall named, You City Retail. You City Retail will comprise about 200,000 sq ft of gross floor area (GFA), with 140,000 sq ft of net lettable area (NLA). It will have 87 indoor and outdoor shops which will be managed by the Atria Management Team, which currently manages Atria Shopping Gallery in Damansara Jaya, Selangor.

This hybrid mall will feature a combination of shoplots, hypermarkets, and retail spaces, and the developer had previously pointed out that it is not competing with mega malls. They see You City Retail as a way for them to provide more conveniences, food and beverage outlets, and supermarkets, for residents of You City III.

You City III is expected to be completed in mid-2023.

Location

You City III is a transit-oriented development (TOD) in Cheras, with an approximately 100m direct, covered link-bridge to the Taman Suntex MRT station. Besides its close proximity to a MRT station, other popular areas are also easily accessible via several major access roads and highways such as the Cheras-Kajang Highway, East-West Link Expressway, Shah Alam Expressway, KL-Seremban Highway and Maju Expressway (MEX).

Additionally, the developer is upgrading roads and building a flyover that will connect to the Cheras-Kajang Expressway.

The developer did not expect the Taman Suntex MRT Station to be built when they bought the land years ago. Thus, they made sure to highlight this TOD selling proposition. The development has potential, with its modern living concept and the convenience of a direct covered walkway to the MRT.

The developer is targeting young professionals, couples, and young families, and those who prefer to commute via public transport to and from work in the Kuala Lumpur city centre (which is only seven stations away) to avoid traffic. It takes about 15 minutes to travel to the city. The developer also aims to have a good mix of owner-occupiers and investors.

Analysis

OSK Property hopes to promote sustainable urban growth in Cheras 9th Mile. That’s why they upgraded the Taman Suntex wet market. Historically, that wet market is popular among commuters from Bangi and Kajang.

YOU-CITY-III-YOU-CITY-3-Selangor-Malaysia-2

This upgrade was done as they felt that the wet market complements the You City development, and will boost the project’s attractiveness while raising the property value of the surrounding area.

Also located at You City is You Vista, which was completed in 2016. So, let’s take a look at how the 1,026 sq ft unit has performed in terms of rental yield.

  • Purchase price: RM550,000
  • Rent out: RM1,800 per month
  • Gross rental yield: About 93% per annum

So, if you’re interested in a unit at You City III that’s priced at RM400,000, here are its estimated loan figures based on the PropertyGuru Home Loan Calculator and PropertyGuru Home Loan Eligibility and Affordability Calculator.

  • LTV / margin of finance: 90%
  • Down payment (10%): RM40,000
  • Loan amount: RM360,000
  • Loan term: 35 years
  • Interest rate: 3.2%
  • Monthly repayment: RM1,426
  • Approximate required gross annual income: RM57,200*

Home loan basics: 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), use the FREE PropertyGuru Loan Pre-Approval online service. 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.
