Is Rubica Harbour Place a Good Buy ?
Our Analysis / Opinion
Own Stay Purpose
Never heard much complaint about OSK Property’s project if compared to certain developer which I definitely cannot mention here. Quality wise I would say ok.
Reason I’m rating 2.5 for Rubica @ Harbour Place is because of its serviced apartment nature. If I’m not mistaken few years ago there’s cases going on in Luminari Residences and there was a fight took place among the AirBnb / short term stay visitors with the security guards. (correct me if I’m wrong)
Hence, due to the grey area of serviced apartment I can’t determine yet if this is a good place for your own stay purpose unless the developer already sign the agreement with purchaser that this project will not be for AirBnb or short term stay purpose.
With the current market conditions, slightly better than Covid-19 timing but still the price are hanging, you should expect an annual ROI of rental rate around 2% to 4% (if you’re lucky)
Return on Investment ROI
ROI in terms of rental rate for Rubica shall be around 2% to 4%
Rental & Cash Flow
If you’re ok with the rental income of Rm 800 to Rm 1,800 per month I think you’re safe to pick up a unit as your investment. This is just based on my very very conservative estimation, if you can get higher rental, congratulations.
How easy to sell in the future ?
Not gonna be an easy job to sell it in the foreseeable future if government does not come out with incentive for secondary market and there’s a few choices of serviced apartment here as well compared to the new added Rubica to the master plan as at May 2022 such as Luminari Residence.
Be careful of what the agent / developer’s staff told you. Because this is a serviced apartment therefore it will be qualify to operate AirBnb & short term stay.
If you’re an investor you need to be careful as well as certain over-promising sales representative will tell you “yes we can operate AirBnb” but in the end when VP you collect your keys that time you saw a big banner “NO HOMESTAY” then gg.com.
Because this is a grey area for serviced apartment, If you hate homestay and Rubica is your only choice then my suggestion is you need to join the AGM to ban homestay and vice versa if you’re investor want to operate AirBnb/ homestay business then you also need to involve in the AGM to voice out / to vote in favour of AirBnb.
I do not represent developer and any party regarding this project Rubica @ Harbour Place.
