Kepong lies within Kuala Lumpur and is close to Selangor. The word Kepong is said to be derived from the Malay word “Kepong” which brings a meaning of covered or surrounded that makes sense as it is indeed surrounded with complete greeneries and nature. It was once powered by the tin mining industry during the British Malaya era whereby this northern part of KL was one of the tin mines in Malaya and it was also one of the biggest new villages formed during the Malayan Emergency. While Kepong may seem like an out-dated part of Klang Valley, it has actually seen so much of progress and transformation with modern and contemporary development taking place over the years. Kepong actually has so much to offer and is a great place for home buyers.

Strong selling and buying points

Kepong’s overall property market outlook is deemed to be positive for both primary and secondary markets as Kepong folks have strong property buying power. Based on the Edge Markets, the locals would have already accepted the fact that in order to own a new home within a new modern development close to the Kuala Lumpur city centre or Petaling Jaya, that would be the price they’d have to pay. According to Chen from Land Serves, with the proposed MRT stations in the Kepong area, it is believed that homebuyers and investors from adjoining neighbourhoods will be attracted to invest in this area.

This is due to Kepong being an old town but in the last 10 years, the younger generation in the vicinity is demanding more high-end homes. The strong demand for modern high-rise developments with full facilities explains the strong take-up and rapid growth of new projects in Kepong. This is mainly because condominiums provide facilities such as gym, swimming pool, sauna, playground, security, parking spaces and so much more that cannot be found in landed properties.

Living with the Greens!

Kepong also has its fair share of greenery and modern developments. Do you know that the Selangor Forest Park is the oldest and largest re-created rain forest in the world? It is the only former mining site in the world that has been successfully converted into a lush forest after it was destroyed by tin-mining activities and deforestation. Parks like Metropolitan Park and Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) are among the famous places for morning walks, jogging, cycling, healthy workouts and just another way for Kepong residents to be closer to nature! Just imagine the beautiful sunrise and sunset views from the balcony of your condominium unit every day; a place with great ambience and lush surroundings where you can call home after a long and busy day to reset.

Great Place of Food, Culture and Facilities

Kepong does not only attract its existing residents but also other buyers who are looking for high rise properties at a reasonable price range with many plus points such as improved connectivity, amenities and facilities. If you are a food lover, then Kepong is definitely a place to go to! There are a lot of restaurants, cafes, eateries stalls and shops all around Kepong that have been around for many generations; the delicious recipes passed down to ensure their heritage. Kepong’s latest addition to its vicinity, Plaza Arkadia, boasts eateries of all kinds – from coffee shops to fancy wine and dine restaurants as well as pubs with live band performances.

Home Within Nature, Yet Near To The City

Enjoying the best of both worlds at affordable prices still do exist. In this instance, condos might be a more appealing option when it comes to living conveniences as well as budget considerations.
