Convenient access to schools greatly influences property purchases

IMAGINE not having to worry about a child’s daily commute to school. In fact, just imagine the child being able to walk to school in a safe and secure environment.

Think not just of the expenses saved but the many precious hours not wasted in endless after-school traffic jams, for both parent and child.

At a recent launch of the Harvard Suites recently, various buyers were overheard saying the presence of not one, but two reputable schools within the development greatly influenced their purchase decisions.

In fact, various polls and word from frontliners in the form of real estate professionals have confirmed this – convenient accessibility to quality education institutions is a major pulling factor for many property buyers.

The Harvard Suites is part of the edusentral development in Setia Alam, Selangor, which features the Peninsula Private School and Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus).

Real estate agents had remarked that many buyers were drawn by the convenience of having these prestigious schools at their doorstep.

This is not exclusive to younger families with school-going children but to investors who recognise the importance of having schools nearby the development as well.

Property investors, especially of retail and commercial spaces, are acutely aware that a large student population makes their units far more appealing to potential tenants.

“It is logical for this to be top of their thinking as a child’s entire schooling will encompass up to 12 years,” reasoned HCK Capital Group Business Relations Properties Division director Sean Ong.

“It makes perfect sense that many families base their purchase decision on a daily routine that will affect them for the long term.”

The Harvard Suites range between 660sq ft and 804sq ft, with the smaller unit featuring two bedrooms while the larger layout has an extra bedroom.

Aside from convenient access to the aforementioned schools, occupants will be able to enjoy a multitude of on-site facilities and these include Jacuzzi, multi-sports courts, gymnasium and swimming pools, allowing for a self-contained yet active and exciting lifestyle for all family members.
