Convenience at the heart of edusentral’s popularity

When quizzed about home buyer preferences, most real estate agents responded that ‘convenience’ is a huge deciding factor. This, they claim, is one of the chief reasons behind the popularity of residential units at edusentral, Setia Alam. Being located within an award-winning township of Setia Alam certainly helps matters as there are designated areas for shopping, leisure, sporting and other activities.

According to Dawitt Tan, Managing Director of IOB Realty Sdn Bhd, many enquiries, especially from first time home owners, centred on a convenient lifestyle, stating: “Many prefer to have all the key amenities not just in the locale but are easily accessible. If they can walk or cycle to these destinations, all the better.”

Top of the list of must have amenities are education, healthcare and grocery shopping. The edusentral development ticks all these boxes and more, hence its residential towers are all sold out save for the recently launched, Harvard Suites.

Part of HCK Capital Group’s education cities series, edusentral has not one, but two prestigious schools on site – Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) and Peninsula Private School. “Having a choice of either international or national curriculum within the development was a big selling point,” explains Zhi Soung, Partner at Revoll Realty Sdn Bhd. “The idea that the children could walk to school was very appealing as it saves hours in commuting time.”

The fact that there is a wide variety of retail outlets nearby the development also appealed greatly to buyers.

“Many potential home buyers for edusentral are young, upwardly mobile executives who lead a very busy lifestyle,” emphasised Zhi Soung. “The ‘convenience’ factor is again very much in their thinking as they will want dining and shopping options at their doorstep to save on time.”

“The Setia Alam Mall is just a stone’s throw away and there will be a number of retail outlets on site, making edusentral very much a self-contained development,” agreed Dawitt Tan. “Convenience and time saving really do appeal to today’s home buyers.”

The Harvard Suites are available in two configurations. The two-bedroom units will have a built up area of 660sq ft while the units featuring an extra bedroom will occupy 804sq ft of built up space. There will be a wide array of facilities, including Jacuzzi and swimming pool, allowing residents to lead an exclusive lifestyle within the development.
