Buying a property in Malaysia can be an exciting yet nerve-wrecking journey especially if you are a first-time homebuyer as there are many factors to consider before you finally make up your mind to secure your dream home for the next 10-20 years.
From picking the area to finalising the price, searching for the ideal property might take more time than you think. However, if you are looking to invest or buy a property at Putra Heights, here are 5 things that would help make you make the right decision.
If you are buying a property for you and your family, the environment of the community and nearby townships are important aspects to consider.
A strategic location will not only be convenient for you to get basic necessities, but it will also have a higher return on investment.
Putra Heights is a mature and big freehold township with peaceful living environments, and less traffic congestion. On top of that, it is just a stone’s throw away from Subang Jaya and Puchong.
Serasi Residences @ Putra Heights Sentral, a project by Sime Darby Property, is located at the center of Putra Heights, being within a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) where it is only 400m away from Putra Heights LRT Station, the connecting interchange station for Kelana Jaya and Seri Petaling line.
The walkway to the LRT stations will also be covered so that you can walk there, be it rain or shine.
It is the first phase of Putra Heights Sentral offering modern versatile homes with 3 practical and functional layout and sizes.
The residences are located nearby a 7-acre Linear Park that has plenty of natural green spaces with a walking trail along Bukit Cermin.

It is also recommended that your monthly repayment should not occupy more than 30% of your monthly household income in order to maintain a positive cash flow and be sufficient for your daily expenses.
Therefore, if you are a first-time homebuyer with a monthly household income of more than RM6,000, the Serasi Residences is a good choice for you as the starting price is only RM380,000 for a 2 bedroom unit.
