News: 3 Tried-And-Tested Tips For Choosing The Right Property

Jan 1, 2021

Are you in the market to purchase a property as an investment, or for your own personal use? With so many options out there, choosing the right one that suits your purposes can often seem like an overly complicated task.

While some potential homebuyers might get all bogged down by the details, making a smart purchasing decision doesn’t have to be so difficult! All you have to do is remember these three magic words: connectivity, liveability, and greenery.

Read on for some of our top 3 tried-and-tested tips for choosing a property that’s right for you!


Tip 1: Convenience comes with connectivity

While the mantra of “location, location, location” is often offered as the rule of thumb, people often miss one important aspect of this piece of advice: Location is meaningless without connectivity

Often times, developers secure plots of land within trendy locales, and, well… hope for the best. However, only those with foresight will also ensure that their project is well-connected and accessible.

Good connectivity translates directly to convenience: a quicker commute, an easier grocery run, and an altogether more seamless living experience. So, it’s always a good idea to first check how well a property connects to current and future transport networks.

Dedicated highway interchanges and public transport infrastructure are always good signs, together with existing commercial, education, and medical facilities in close proximity.

The tranquil hills of Setiawangsa has kept its pride of place as one of the most coveted neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur for decades. While there has been plenty of new housing projects in the area, one especially notable development is The Valley Residences.

Arguably positioned on the most strategic plot of land in Setiawangsa, The Valley Residences is located within walking distance to the AEON AU2 Shopping Centre, Giant Hypermarket, and Brighton International School. The Gleneagles Medical Centre is also within easy reach. 

The Valley Residences easily connects to the AKLEH, DUKE, and MRR2 highways. The soon-to-be-ready Setiawangsa-Pantai Expressway completes this road network and further expands travel options to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre nearby. Two LRT stations, Setiawangsa and Jelatek, also serve the area.

Now, what could be better than that? The fact that this development is located a mere 5km away from KL city centre! With a location that screams connectivity and convenience, you can’t ask for much more than this!


Tip 2: All-rounder facilities for enriching liveability

What are your lifestyle requirements? An ideal property can look very different from the perspective of a single person, a young couple, a growing family, or a multigenerational one.

One of the current property trends are projects that cater to very specific lifestyles. For example, there are a variety of developments designed with Yuppies in mind, and likewise, other projects proudly promote elements suited for multigenerational living.

While such specificity can be appealing in this day and age of individuality and uniqueness, this may not always be a smart choice in the long run.

People’s circumstances regularly change, so it’s always smart to choose a property that can adapt and grow with you. Projects which cater to a wide range of lifestyles also maximise rental opportunities.

With over 60 enriching facilities spread over 4.6 acres and 5 facility zones, The Valley Residences has something for all walks of life.


Health-conscious individuals will be in heaven! The Valley Residences boasts not one, not two, but three gyms for high-, medium-, and low-impact exercise regimens. In fact, Power MMA Gym will be located within the grounds, making it the very first MMA (mixed martial arts) gym in a condominium in Malaysia!

Together with an Olympic-length pool, squash and badminton courts, a meditation deck, and a sky jacuzzi, you’ll achieve your peak fitness in no time.

Those who love entertaining and socialising will be spoiled for choice at The Valley Residences. Stylish community spaces like the Dream Chamber, Hammock Groove, BBQ Corner, Skyline BBQ Deck, Sky Dining, Sky Theatre, and Sky Party Lounge are at your disposal for any occasion, and with great views to boot!

There’s plenty for the kids (and young at heart) too! Here at The Valley Residences, specific play facilities have been thoughtfully created to suit kids of different age groups, and all children can enjoy the Sierra Playpark and Playrooms – the largest of its kind in a condominium.

In addition to that, there is the Toddler’s Corner as well as a Kiddie’s Corner that contains a mini stadium and mini golf area; calling all budding sports champions, here’s where they can hone their skills!

The residences at The Valley Residences have been designed with all kinds of living arrangements in mind. Particularly unique are the units with the dual-key feature, perfect for multigenerational or sublet living.


Tip 3: Naturally thrive in a sustainable environment

It has long been known that nature has a positive effect on our well-being.

Alongside the increasing awareness among the public on mental health, there is now an increased demand among discerning purchasers for developments that at once respect the environment and cultivate an eco-friendly living atmosphere.

However, with the breakneck speed of development in our urban areas, developers tend to overlook environmental considerations in their projects.

Natural greenery is often razed to break the ground for new projects, and developments are planned to maximise cost savings without much thought on how this impacts the environment.

Environmentally conscious projects that ‘do things differently’ easily stand out among the rest.

The Valley Residences is a refreshing example of this. It is a verdant oasis of natural calm within the buzzing Setiawangsa neighbourhood. From conception, to construction, to completion, The Valley Residences’ commitment to the environment and its residents’ well-being is clear.


The location, design, and orientation of The Valley Residences’ three residential towers ensure that all residents are able to enjoy breathtaking, therapeutic views of Bukit Dinding and Banjaran Titiwangsa.

This project has been developed to the exacting standards of the Green Building Index, which means that The Valley Residences is a green, sustainable building that provides energy savings, water savings, recycling facilities, and a healthier indoor environment, both during and after construction.

The Valley Residences’ lush green grounds have incorporated natural terrain elements into its landscape. Its nature-inspired facilities like the Garden Lounge, Savoury Garden, Orchard Forest, and Forest Veranda feature indigenous plant life to support biodiversity.

With such an eco-conscious approach, it’s easy to find peace of mind at The Valley.


Pro Tip: It all boils down to the developer’s track record

You can’t really go wrong if you invest in a developer with a good track record. Projects by well-regarded developers usually easily check all the three boxes of connectivity, liveability, and greenery.
