Nilai Overview


Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia

PropSocial's Review





Nilai is an upcoming town on the edge of the Kuala Lumpur city centre, that is technically located in the district of Seremban and the state of Negeri Sembilan. Due to its proximity to the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Nilai has been gaining the attention of developers and home buyers. As Nilai is located on the outskirts, the cost of land here is on the lower side, as is the cost of building a home or even a township.

Nilai is also popularly known as a student township as it has many institutions of higher education in the area. Of the most renowned institutions in this area is the INTI International University, Nilai University, Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia, Islamic University College of Malaysia, and Manipal International University. The number of universities in this town has resulted in a very healthy student rental market in Nilai.

With the number of upcoming developments in Nilai, hypermarkets and businesses are mushrooming in town. Within just the town area there is Mydin, Tesco, Giant, Nilai Square and the Nilai 3 Wholesale Centre, with the latter two drawing crowds even from the city.

As a result of Nilai’s increasing popularity, there are a number of upcoming new developments and townships in town. Of the most popular one offering some of the most affordable homes in a beautiful environment with its own communal gardens is Pajam Nilai. There is also Putra Nilai which comprises a massive 6,233 acres of land, which its development started in the early 90s.

Approaching the year 2017, Nilai is now seeing healthy development growth and is a preferred township of first time home buyers
