Did you know that Rawang was one of the earliest satellite towns of Kuala Lumpur during the heyday of tin-mining? Rawang was also the first location to be electrified in Malaysia when the first electric generator was installed in 1894 to support the mining industry.

Historically, Rawang was perhaps not top-of-mind when it came to residential living. All that, however, is fast changing as we observe these trends.

  1. Rawang is experiencing rapid development

More and more newly minted commercial hubs and residential locales are popping up in Rawang. A new central market opened its doors in 2006 in Bandar Baru Rawang to meet increasing demand from a growing population. You can also satisfy your retail therapy cravings at Tesco, Parkson, AEON, Mydin and Giant.

In terms of transportation, the KTM Komuter intercity train remains a favourite mode of commute. There’s also a bigger bus station in the town centre.

The demand for better amenities has also seen the setting up of international schools and the KPJ Rawang Specialist Hospital to cater to a more sophisticated demographic.

Of course, rapid development comes with better connectivity. And speaking about connectivity…

  1. Increased connectivity has attracted big-name developers

Rawang Bypass, Federal Route 37 also known as Rawang–Serendah Highway, is a federally-funded divided highway bypass in Rawang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Since the mid-2000s, Rawang’s borders has widened to include the rubber estates fringing Serendah to the north (where Bukit Sentosa and Bukit Beruntung stands today); Bandar Tasik Puteri, Bandar Country Homes, Emerald West and Taman Anggun to the west.

Connectivity-wise, Rawang residents mostly used the North-South Expressway (PLUS). Now, there’s the Guthrie Corridor Expressway, which would take us from Rawang to Shah Alam in a little over half an hour; the LATAR highway to Kuala Selangor (for seafood or road trip in under an hour), and the Rawang-Serendah bypass, which is also Malaysia’s tallest highway.

This increased connectivity has attracted big-name developers like Mah Sing, BRDB, Guocoland, Gamuda Land, Glomac and Scientex. In time, Rawang will surely be the next enviable township for residential living.

With that said, better connectivity means a better influx of non-Rawang natives, which leads to:

  1. More and more non-Rawang natives are looking for property for sale in Rawang.

Real estate practitioners have noted that Rawang’s property landscape has grown by leaps and bounds in recent times. Linked houses have doubled in price due to greater demand from homebuyers outside Rawang such as from Kepong, Selayang, Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur and Puchong. Some estimates put the ratio of native to non-native housebuyers at 20%.

Many within the Klang Valley are attracted to the affordability and increased quality of landed property in Rawang. Contemporary residential concepts promise a design aesthetic that is bound to please along with uncompromised security. Prices have also appreciated, showing great potential as long-term investment choices.

As we see it, Rawang is indeed turning into a desirable township that will house thriving communities living with peace-of-mind.
