Although there is a wide array of options available to home hunters in Klang Valley in the current property market, many buyers are still concerned about the issue of affordability. No doubt, the economic slowdown has been a boon for property buyers with so many developers offering attractive promotions and launches.

However, two key questions remain for the average working Joe or Jane – especially first-time homebuyers – ‘can I afford to buy a house at my current salary?’ and ‘will the home be in a good location?’

Buying a house is a huge, long-term commitment. Sometimes if you find homes at affordable prices, they might not be located in desirable areas, and vice versa. Fortunately, if you are diligent enough you can find attractive homes in Klang Valley at attractive prices and in prime locations.

Undoubtedly, the two most important factors in any property purchase are location and price point. M Arisa ticks both boxes emphatically. Although Sentul is an established and matured enclave in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, in recent years it has skyrocketed in popularity among homebuyers.

Sentul has undergone significant improvement in its urban landscape and is part of the Kuala Lumpur 2020 Structure Plan. On top of that, M Arisa offers attractive serviced residences with built areas ranging from 550 sq ft to 1025 sq ft featuring 1-4 bedrooms at affordable prices, starting from RM299,000.

Strong price points and location is definitely a winning combo for first-time homebuyers!


2. What makes it unique

It boasts the first multi-level sky garden residence in Sentul.

Mah Sing is well-known in the industry for the unique selling points of its exciting residential projects, and M Arisa is no different. For starters, it has the first multi-level sky garden residence in Sentul.

The development also comes with an express car park ramp design.  Some of the units are built upon a special park-and-live concept. This means that you can park your vehicle and reach home without needing to take a lift. You will also live on the same floor as the multi-level sky garden, as well as the chill and relax area.

Seeing is believing. It’s a truly unique experience! 

3. What it offers

Modern homeowners often look at the facilities offered in a residential unit when making buying decisions. This will not only accommodate the lifestyle needs and requirements of the unit owners but also their family members and loved ones. 

M Arisa is certainly not lacking in these aspects. It has 2.5 acres of green area featuring facilities and sky gardens on Level GF, 10, 36 and 49. The superb facilities include a floating gym; 50-metre lap swimming pool; yoga; chill and relax zone; BBQ area and viewing deck; courtyard garden and urban farming; co-working and meeting rooms; as well as a KTV and games room.

There are also plenty of convenient amenities within M Arisa’s vicinity, such as schools (SJK©Sentul Pasar, SK Convent Sentul 1, SK Methodist Sentul), hospitals (Sentul Medical Centre, KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital, KL General Hospital), shopping centres (Sunway Putra Mall, Setapak Central, Publika Shopping Gallery, Giant Hypermarket Batu Caves). If you have an appointment in KL city centre, hey, it is just 5km away!

 It’s a plethora of options for either work or play – or perhaps a bit of both!

 6. What you should take note of

There are always pros and cons to living in a popular and prime location. Any place that thrives and bustles with life is bound to have some degree of traffic congestion. 

The same can be said about the lively area of Sentul. For example, Jalan Sentul Pasar which is one of the main roads, gets heavily congested. However, the benefits of living in this area far outweigh the negatives. On the flip side, these factors often contribute to the rapid appreciation of your property value.

That’s the price you pay for progress!
