Undoubtedly, the Light Rail Transit (LRT) brings convenience to urban living. As part of the extensive rail network that connects Kuala Lumpur to its surrounding suburbs and cities, the LRT has become a game-changer for property seekers.

Apart from being a mode of transportation, it also boosts the capital growth and rental yield of properties within walking distance of its stations, thanks to the demand from both buyers and renters.

So, what are the main criteria for a family home?

A family home serves as a haven where you and your loved ones can build lasting memories. It is a space that caters to the unique needs and dynamics of a family unit, striking a good balance between functionality, comfort, and convenience.

When it comes to choosing a family home near an LRT station, there are six important factors come into play to ensure a harmonious living experience.

a. Proximity to LRT stations

Opting for a family residence within close proximity to an LRT station provides families with convenience, reducing travel time, and eliminating the hassles of navigating congested roads. This advantage enhances daily commuting while fostering a more sustainable lifestyle by minimising the reliance on vehicles.

b. Safety and security

Safety is paramount when it comes to selecting a family home. Look for properties located in well-established neighbourhoods, with a low crime rate and secure surroundings. Gated and guarded communities or condominiums equipped with 24/7 security systems provide an added layer of protection for families.

c. Educational institutions

Access to quality education is a crucial aspect for families. Consider family homes that are situated near schools or educational institutions, ensuring that your children have easy access to education without compromising on travel time.

d. Amenities and facilities

Look for properties that offer a range of amenities and facilities suitable for family living. Nearby parks, playgrounds, recreational areas, shopping centres, and healthcare facilities can enhance the overall quality of life for your family.

e. Layout and design

The family home should also have ample space to accommodate the needs of all family members. Consider properties with multiple bedrooms, sufficient living areas, and practical layouts that allow for flexibility and privacy.

According to an association in the industry, affordable housing should be conducive for family living, and have a minimum size of 800 sq ft (excluding balcony) with at least 2 bedrooms.

f. Family-friendly neighbourhoods

Opt for neighbourhoods that promote a family-friendly environment, with a sense of community, social activities, and space for children to play and interact with their peers. This contributes to a nurturing environment that enables families to build connections and create lasting bonds.

An ideal family home should comfortably accommodate at least three people, and provide a good living environment for the next five to seven years, allowing room for your family to grow.
