Impact on properties distance from LRT stations

In my opinion and experience, generally:

1. < 500m: possible too noisy and cramp
2. 500m – 1km: good as it is within walking distance
3. 1km – 3km: good if there is park and ride facility at the station

One of us had vested a unit of subsales double storey terrace within 1km – 3km radius from the Kinrara BK5 station. This month, December 2014 marked exactly 12 months from the month I pay my earnest deposit to book the unit. As on December 2014, the market price has already soared 15% within past 12 months.

From my analysis, in years to come, you won’t see the property price rise as steep as it was in the past 5 years. Generally, housing price for prime and established locations may to continue grow steadily between 4% – 5% per annum.
