Gaya has received tremendous response from buyers as well as the Phase 1 that comprises 2 blocks was 80% sold after 2 weeks. The Phase 2 was launched just a month afterwards due to the good response. Among the reasons of the good response is good sales package by the developer ad also the developer offered Developer Interest Bearing Scheme (DIBS) with 12 months interest free for the 10% down payment. Additionally, special rate of BLR minus 2.3% is also offered to buyers. Furthermore, 3 commercial blocks were sold as en bloc. It was reported that Block 2 to was sold to a European multi-national company, whilst Block 5 and also 8 were sold to a Singaporean investor. Hopefully, these investors will bring in business as well as help to grow the area into a business hub. But, many investors have a doubt on the success rate of Gaya. One of the issues raised is Sime Darby’s reputation which the developer has failed in several commercial developments such as Ara Damansara’s shop lots, Putra Height’s Medan Putra and also USJ 25 – whereby these commercial areas are not flourishing as planned. Then, the failure is because of Sime Darby’s main focus on only selling the properties, unlike some reputable developers which will keep few units for prime tenants to become the anchor. In addition, supply is another issue because there are several new high-rise residential developments nearby such as Saville, 3 Residen, K Club Residence as well as the massive Platinum Victory’s Platinum Hill Series condominiums (such as Platinum Hill PV5 and Platinum Hill PV3) in Taman Melati.
