Low rise condominiums are currently on the rise, and this has been the current trend that has been followed by a lot of potential residents and investors. With this demand, the rising number of low rise condominiums has led developers to continue pushing forward in delivering the best properties to give more choices to people.
Tiara Damansara is one of the most prominent low rise condominiums in the Petaling Jaya area – specifically on Section 17. Comprised of four low rise blocks that are occupied by a total of 351 units, Tiara Damansara seems to be a good fit for the middle class clique in Petaling Jaya. We’ll find out soon enough. 🙂 Tiara Damansara is a freehold property.
Tiara’s main selling point is its accessibility; the buildings are getting old and the design is looking rather dated. Comparable properties for pricing purposes would be Prima 16 and Li Villas (both 1km away); its asking prices have risen up to as much as RM500 in the recent months for all three properties depending on unit condition, level and state of furnishing.

What We Think
Properties in PJ can sometimes be overlooked because they are mainly old and have fallen off the radar years ago; additionally some of these properties are leasehold which make them less desirable to some buyers. Tiara Damansara may be one of those hidden jewels which could boast of a central location and yet tucked in a homely, suburban environment. Compared to other popular locations such as Mont Kiara, KLCC, or Bangsar, this suburb PJ property offers a peaceful environment. Tiara Damansara is carefully located in a private area, adding up to its attractive attributes to any potential investor or resident.
One would not compare Tiara to condominiums in, say, Mont Kiara or in the KLCC enclave, but for all its purposes and intentions, Tiara is living up to its expectations. For mid-of-the-range properties like this, pricing is always a major driver as it could make or break any investment – no matter if it’s for the long haul or for the short flip.
