BY Team Loanstreet

Updated 01 Nov 2018

So you’ve been house hunting because you’re about to start a family or perhaps you want to upgrade because your family is growing. We’re pretty sure you have loads of things to consider like how big the house should be, whether there are nearby nursery/schools, what the neighbourhood is like and most importantly - “can I afford the house?”.

Yes, looking for an ‘affordable’ home in the Klang Valley that fits your need isn’t easy. It’s similar to searching for the perfect char kuey teow in KL - life is tough. Long story short, to help you with your hunting, Loanstreet did some research on family-friendly homes that are 'affordably' priced below RM600,000. 

Below are the top 7 developments that offer a convenient and secure environment for you and your family to grow together.

What's covered in this article?

1. BSP 21, Bandar Saujana Putra 

Located within Bandar Saujana Putra (BSP), Jenjarom, BSP 21 is an award-winning service residence that is able to cater to all walks of life. We recommend you to take a look at Type A4, which has a built-up size of 1,102 sf. It features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - definitely well-suited for young parents. With over 70 facilities i.e. mini playground, treehouse, swimming pool, jogging track and more, we’re pretty sure you and your family will have lots of good leisure time.

You also don’t have to worry about the amenities because it’s surrounded by commercial hubs, hospitals, shopping centres and hypermarkets. However, public transport isn’t easily available here - not an ideal area for those who often commute via public transport. Although the place is a bit further from the city centre, it has good connectivity - North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE) and South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE). 

Launch price: Starts from RM 365,900


2. Kundang Estates, Rawang

As one of the most anticipated projects by Gamuda Land, Kundang Estates was recently awarded the Family Friendly Development by Awards 2017. Located within the Rawang postcode, this low-density double-storey terrace development is ideal for families seeking for a tranquil atmosphere. Even better, the place also offers spacious and functional layouts with the built-up size ranging from 1733 sf and 2434 sf. 

As for the amenities, you can’t expect much at the moment because the area is still developing. However, you can drive to Kuang to fulfil your daily needs, which is about 15 minutes away from the residence. It’s also situated at the intersection of three major highways i.e. North-South Highway (NSE), Guthrie Corridor (GCE) and Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR), which means you’re to travel to KL or Petaling Jaya without hassle.

Launch price:  Starts from RM 570,000


3. O2 Residence, Puchong

What we love about the 02 Residence is its combination of the comfortable living space and the eco-friendly environment. Situated in Puchong South, this serviced apartment offers open concept interiors with built-up size from 1000 sf to 2,600 sf, which is quite spacious and comfortable for growing families and young couples. To keep you and your loved one safe, this residence is equipped with a 3-tier 24-hour security system.

To add, as a resident here, you don’t have to drive far for the amenities. The place is surrounded with a hypermarket, petrol station, schools, clinics, hospital and eateries. Another plus point is that it’s well connected to major highways such SKVE ELITE, Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP), Maju Expressway (MEX), Besraya Expressway, Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), Serdang-Kinrara Putrajaya Expressway (SKIP) and North-South Highway. 

Launch price: Starts from  RM500,000

4. Ken Rimba, Shah Alam

Ken Rimba is a green township that offers eco-friendly mixed development that located in Section 16 of Shah Alam. As a house buyer, you have the option to choose between a condominium and double-storey terrace link house that comes with built-up size ranging from 1,840 sf to 2,600 sf. 

That aside this place is within walking distance to a commercial centre and hypermarkets, so you don’t have to worry about the amenities. There are also a number of schools within the area. For those who commute via public transport, there is Padang Jawa KTM station, with covered-walkway from the development. It’s also connected to highways like  KESAS, LATAR,  New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Kemuning - Shah Alam Highway (LKSA) and Federal Highway.

Launch price: Starts from RM500,000


5. Bandar Seri Coalfields, Sungai Buloh

This is another mixed development that you have to consider. Located in Sungai Buloh, Bandar Seri Coalfields is said to be a self-sufficient neighbourhood. The homes here are spacious too - 1,893sf to 3,066 sf. Depending on your budget, you can opt for the semi-detached house, bungalow, terrace house and super link - perfectly made for those looking to upgrade to a bigger home or to live in a wider space with their extended families. 

Apart from that, the place offers convenience due to its strategic location. You can find kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, clinic, market, church, mosque, eateries and more. That being said, the only concern that is that it might not be suitable for residents working in the south of Klang Valley such as Puchong, Cyberjaya and Putrajaya, just to name a few, as Bandar Seri Coalfields is located closer to Kuala Selangor. 

Launch price: Starts from RM580,000


6. Lakeview Residency, Cyberjaya 

A hidden gem in Cyberjaya, Lakeview Residency is a low-density and resort-style condominium that has homes with built-up size ranging from 938 sf to 3,152 sf. We would recommend this development to those who prefer to have a home away from the hustle bustle - imagine going back to the lush greenery and scenic lake view after a long day at work. 

To give you a better livability, this place offers facilities like playground, swimming pool, tennis court, gymnasium, 5 acres garden park, convenience store, cafeteria, laundry, mini market, nursery and more. Other than that it’s surrounded by amenities like public and private educational institutions, eateries and entertainment outlets. Also, if you’re planning to stay here, we’d advise you to utilise the MEX Highway to reach KL city centre in half an hour or so.

Price starts from RM435,000. 


7. Tropicana Metropark, Subang Jaya

If you’re looking for something that is within the Klang Valley, then Tropicana Metropark can be one of your options. Situated in Subang Jaya, this award-winning neighbourhood offers home units with built-up size ranging from 596 sf to 4,000 sf - suitable for the singles, young couples and family. The best part is that all units come with FREE built-in kitchen cabinet, shower screen and water heater.

That aside, it also has top-notch facilities such as Olympic-length swimming pool, half basketball court and multi-storey gymnasium to cater to your active lifestyle. For the parents, you will be delighted to know that there is GEMS International School located within the development. To add, public transport won’t be an issue as it is conveniently located nearby the Batu Tiga KTM Komuter station, allowing you to travel to other parts of Klang Valley seamlessly. 

Launch price: Starts from RM500,000
