Location, location, location! This has always been the most important motto for property investment experts when acquiring real estate.

Although there are other considerations which are just as vital, selecting a property within a prime or strategic locale has been the golden rule of connoisseurs. The wrong choice could have a detrimental impact on the property’s potential capital appreciation as well as ability to attract tenants capable of paying high rents.

As such, PropertyGuru Malaysia brings you the top five locations in Klang Valley where buyers have searched the most. This is in line with our goal to keep you better informed of what’s sizzling hot in the local real estate scene!

Top 5 Districts in Klang Valley for Home Buyers

Notably, Cheras emerged as the most searched location in Klang Valley for property buyers. That’s not unsurprising, given the area’s potential for further capital appreciation in light of the upcoming Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT Line.

Living there also enables people to travel easily to other parts of Klang Valley, big thanks to a number of LRT stations as well as the Silk Highway and Cheras-Kajang Highway.

Aside from being home to Malaysia’s longest pasar malam (night market), the suburb is also dotted by several shopping spots, including Carrefour Cheras, Jaya Jusco Taman Maluri, Connaught Market Centre and Aeon Jusco Mahkota Cheras.

Meanwhile, Petaling Jaya is the most popular rental market in Klang Valley. According to well-known property expert Ho Chin Soon, he personally believes that this city is the country’s top property hotspot, due to its central location within Klang Valley itself.

The area is well-developed with infrastructures and transportation facilities. So much so that there are hardly any room left for new residential projects, resulting in developers building their new projects outside of Petaling Jaya, and second tier areas of Klang Valley and beyond.

Furthermore, Petaling Jaya enjoys three access points to the North-South Expressway: via Damansara, Subang and Kota Damansara. The city is home to many major shopping malls, such asThe Curve, One Utama, Paradigm Mall, Empire Damansara, Sunway Pyramid and Tropicana City Mall.
