The provision of affordable housing is being developed rapidly whilst the mismatch between demand and supply in the residential market was reported as a crisis causing an increased in the overhang of residential accommodation. To date, no detailed analysis in the form of a spatial pattern for affordable housing has been studied to illustrate the crisis. Thus, this paper aims to analyse patterns for affordable house prices by using a spatial model in Selangor state with further analysis of overhang units in the Selangor district. Secondary data were obtained from various sources and the spatial model was formed and generated to examine the spatial patterns within the study area, which is in Selangor. Although previous research has found that the median household income group intended to purchase a type of landed house, for example terraced houses, the offered prices in the property market were not affordable to this particular group. Further analysis of residential overhang found that Gombak district has a high density of land use zoned for housing supply whilst facing the increased overhang. The findings of this research may guide the stakeholders on proper planning for near future of the affordable housing development with suitable type of residential to meet the residential market segmentation and demand.
