People report being able to commute to Singapore CBD in 45 minutes from East Ledang. That surprises me a bit but it is very close to the 2nd Link (under 10 minutes away).

East Ledang is also one of the few zones in Malaysia to be linked up with FTTH (Fibre to The Home) Fast Speed Internet access.

Prices of homes in East Ledang range from about RM 700,000 to well over RM 1,750,000. Prices have been rising fairly rapidly the last year or two. Both in terms of existing home prices and new construction by the developers.

Rent from RM 4,000/m to over RM 10,000/mo. RM 4,000 – RM 6,000/month will get 2,500 square feet semi-detached/link houses (townhouses). 3,500 square feet might be RM 5,000 – RM 8,000 a month.

  1. Hi. My name is Razi and I love your site as I find it informative. I’m a local (Malaysian) who works in Singapore. I’m not familiar with the prospect of the JB market as I’m originally from KL. So i’m seeking your thought about buying subsale unit in East Ledang ? I plan to stay there while reaping the rise of the property price. I know it will be good if I can hold until the HSR completed in 10 years. But down the road, in case I need to move back to KL (within 3-4 years time), will I still be able to sell the property? I don’t mind selling at market price but thinking most buyers would consider all the new properties/project around the area. Appreciate your thought
