Selangor Overview



PropSocial's Review





Selangor is among the most established states in Malaysia with excellent infrastructure and well-developed townships. It is bordered by Perak to the north, Pahang to the east, and Negeri Sembilan to the south.

The name ‘Selangor’ came from a couple of interesting theories. The first one is that the word derives from the shortened form of ‘Kuala Mengangau’ - a mangrove swamp that was eventually called ‘Kuala Selangor.’ The second theory comes from a tale of a warrior who was outwitted by a ‘langau’ (blow fly) that was bothering him while he was resting by the river bank.

Selangor became part of the Federation of Malaysia in 1963 and its former capital city, Kuala Lumpur became the administration centre in trade, commerce and banking. The state’s capital city has since changed to Shah Alam.

Selangor often records higher total property transactions among other states due to the massive demand here. When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, the property market here became expectedly sluggish, same as every other state in Malaysia. However, recently it seems to be recovering with renewed consumer confidence. This could be due to the government introducing several initiatives like the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) and the revival of projects such as the Mass Rapid Transit Line 3 (MRT3) to improve the value of Klang Valley properties. It could also be due to the pandemic situation stabilising after the distribution of vaccines and the opening of all state borders.

Selangor perfectly accommodates residents here with a highly desirable standard of living. Most areas are covered by networks of major highways and public transportations such as LRT stations, taxi stands and bus stations. Moreover, there is a huge range of options for shopping malls, education, food, amenities and attractions to choose from. You will never find anything lacking if you find a home in Selangor.
