Finding your dream home in Malaysia may come at a hefty price as the availability of affordable housing is quite limited. Data from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) in early 2018 showed that houses in the country were “seriously unaffordable” compared to global standards. However, it may come as a shock to Malaysians that there are affordable housing around Klang Valley if you try to find. Here are some of the affordable homes in Klang Valley that you may consider to check out:
- D’ Quince, Central Park Damansara
The smart condominiums of D’Quince are located strategically in the heart of Damansara, putting you close to key hotspots and a great selection of amenities around the city.
What makes the D’ Quince so attractive is the starting price, which begins at RM 270,000 for a 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom condominium.
Residents at D’Quince would not have to travel far to reach established amenities such as Tesco, Ikea, 1 Utama shopping mall, KPJ Damansara and Nadayu Hospital.
Other than that, residents can also enjoy many other great facilities in the D’Quince condominium such as a crystal clear swimming pool, a fitness hub, sunny deck, serenity walk, garden gazebo, resting lounge, kid’s playland, grill n’ dine, community hall, half basketball court and table tennis.
