    Don’t simply shoot !!!! What I am saying is the real facts. Don’t dream of
    selling even 400k.Please grow up for the ignorant.

    Real facts ahh?? Wonder where you get your facts from. Simple thoughts….. If you bought it for 400K in 2013 or early 2014 (and after rebate), will the current market price in 2015 will be at 400K too?? Pls take into account the price after 1-2 years, the increase on materials/labors, the fact that the project is completed, not abandoned, with OC… blah blah blah. Come on! Even our current inflation will boost the price by at least few percentage. Not to say this is Penang property, even though it’s in Mainland not Island. Tell me one “newly developed’ property in Penang, the price during launch (soft or hard launch, whatever ) and the price after complete/OC is the same or lower?? Well, it’s not me dreaming, but you. Get you facts right and move on, bro! The other facts is, you don’t own a property in The Signature. Right? ….. My advice to you, if you able to source a property here for 400K, quickly grab it, or pls share it in this forum. It will benefit people like me. At least you will gain good situation mah… PEACE!

    Not even 400K? That was the price during launch (for higher floors) and after 1-2 years, you are saying the price remain the same? Even though the project going to be completed and then OC? In the last 1-2 years, no increase on construction materials, labors etc… Come on lah. Just take 1 contributing factor, the ‘inflation’. The inflation rate for the past 2 years enough to justify increase on this property price by at least few percentage. By the way, I need one favor from you. If you able to source unit equal or below 400K, pls share it in this forum so that people like me can quickly grab it :) . One fact for sure, you don’t own a property at The Signature :) . PeAcE.

    Just try the sub-sales market and Banks’ valuation report and that’s all you
    need to justify.

    I wonder what is the rental rate for a fully furnished unit in The Signature? Can it be more than RM2k?

    More than RM2K rental ? Looks way off.
    Visit Palma Laguna property talk for your ref.

    Quotes, before discount, from nearby Palma Laguna for sell and rent are like below. Signature in the same road, same area, about same built-up but semi-finished can be slightly more expensive, but same price range.
    Usually, rental and selling prices based on tenants and buyers impression of market values that they willing to pay, not landlord or seller wishes.

    @Ah Girl
    The school near to signature is not a leak, is a plus point, the railway track and mosque are being taken care off with installation of double glass window (developer already has a thought of it). The bus station near by the condo is definitely a plus point with better excess for the unit. If you do not understand how to choose a residential property location. I strongly advise you to go and attend some classes on property related topic especially residential and condo unit. I had bought more than 10 units of condo in various area near jalan baru and they never fail me so far.
    I believe with your “reverse analytically” brain and knowledge, you will never able to buy even one unit in this area. You chase after a bird but I feed a bird, see who can catch more birds at the end?

    The evaluation is around 550K for signature, from reliable source.

  11. Mainland
    January 16th, 2015 at 17:21 | #11


    Only from Bank’s valuation will determine the value of the property. Then quickly
    without hesitation sell this property to this ” reliable source “.

    January 16th, 2015 at 18:54 | #12


    Where got ppl want to stay beside school if don’t have kids or if your kids not going to that school. Depend on what school ma. Also, where got ppl want to stay near buildings like local bus station or hospital. You take bus every day ? You go to hospital everyday ? Obviously, you have not stayed near railway track before, not just the noises, but mainly the vibration lah esp for tall building. Double glass window can help vibration meh ? You still tie your mindset to developer’s old marketing concept where property is advertised must near to infrastructures like school, bus station, hospital, etc which not needed by many on daily basis. You went to property classes BUT only know how to buy 10 condos near Jalan baru ? Jalan baru not even got 10 condo projects to buy. Obviously, you are not from local. Why should I buy one unit in this area ? So, you feed and catch handicapped birds lah, OR may not even real birds, so that’s why it is so easy ma. Probably they are chicks lah or Angry Birds. Cheers.

    Agreed – the valuation from bank already reached around 600k. Just ignore those calling us being ignorance-:)
    I guess the are regretting missing d boat.

    My Dream News:

    The “Adam’s Bank” valuation for The Signature in Jalan Baru, Prai is around
    600k. Don’t shit around because I have property in B’worth.

    In Nov last year, one advertised for sale at 498k. Within 2months, the price up whoppingly to 600k. Wow, must be like a “day light robbery”.

    January 17th, 2015 at 08:57 | #19

    phase 2 only around 400k, wait another 3 or 5 years may be got such price or move ur unit to island:-D

  20. Mainland
    January 17th, 2015 at 10:34 | #20


    You can advertise even above 600k but no takers and the price is way
    above bank’s valuation.

  21. winwin
    January 17th, 2015 at 11:12 | #21


    I did ask developer regarding phase 2, there was no news yet, they only mentioned most likely phase 2 is also luxury condo because of phase 1 successful sales. Did they release the price for phase 2 already ?

  22. Weng Keen
    January 17th, 2015 at 21:43 | #22

    Guys, all the newly launched condo in mainland is going for the range between 480 – 520 psft. This is furthermore luxury condo with handful of facilities that others’ don’t offer, adjacent to mydin, location is very strategic – central area to go to any place in mainland. Of course like all the properties, it has some drawback as in close to school and railway station. But the advantages outweigh the drawbacks by many magnitudes. Can u name me 1 location which is perfect? I am a seasonal investor with number of properties both in island and mainland and never seen a prefect property in my entire 15+ yrs of investment experience.
    You can judge ur self abt the sub-sales price and the launching price of phase 2.

    I can pay you 50k commission if you can get me any unit at Signature for below 450k. I pity you for your ignorance abt properties in mainland. Continue to dream on.

    For 600k, I would rather buy double storey landed house (<10 years old) in Bkt. Tengah area adjacent to Song Bang Kheng road. Good location and easy access too. To come out from this condo, we can only turn left into Jalan Baru.

  25. Mainland
    January 17th, 2015 at 22:20 | #25


    Very naive, don’t try your luck with this property. If anyone is willing to buy
    will consider Wellesley Residence in B’worth. Definitely not this one.

  26. Uncle Ho
    January 17th, 2015 at 22:54 | #26

    This project has the greatest track record. All units were snapped up within weeks. Furthermore, this is a rare low density and luxurious condo project. I think you are being naive here and not others. Pls check the track record of Wellesley.

  27. Mainland
    January 17th, 2015 at 23:08 | #27

    @Uncle Ho

    Opposite across the road 3 storey selling only 550k until balls become “big’. Are
    you the next one in line ?

    January 18th, 2015 at 00:14 | #28

    Dear forum members, please don’t waste your time with people like ‘mainland’ who may be planted by competitors to cause stir. ‘Mainland’ is clearly being ignorant and lack of knowledge of property market in Penang. The track record and the positive comments in 5+ pages of this project are clear evidence of how this project is well received. You rarely see low density luxurious condo, strategic location and many amenities including largest mall, 5 star hotel etc. coming in this area. Good luck to those waiting for OC. I’m sure the price would have been appreciated considerably.

  29. Mainland
    January 18th, 2015 at 01:11 | #29


    Yes might appreciated to 400k. Call for Banks’ valuation to prove me wrong.

  30. autoStore
    January 18th, 2015 at 09:32 | #30

    I am a buyer before for a 2nd hand house. I usually ask for bank evaluation and see if this property worth for buying. Let say seller ask 500k, bank evaluates 450k. I would then ask myself if i really like this? If i “super” like it and enough for my budget, i would then go for it after 2nd round of negotiation.

    I think bank valuation is a must, coz we need loan from them 90% out of it. This is normal case lah.
    Sellers have the rights to ask any price they want (for example: RM600k), buyers need to go through a deep consideration as many other buyers do or as mentioned above. if both parties reach consensus, then SOLD.

    One thing i want to hightlight here is that, no right or wrong we ask for any price we want to sell our properties.

    January 18th, 2015 at 22:16 | #31

    Maybe those spammers are staying in Bukit Tengah or Bukit Mertajam? The existence of Signature and coming developments jam their way to cari makan through Penang Bridge?

    Come on, if you to solve this, no need to bomb here, just buy Laguna, you can stay closer to the bridge. Or you not afford to buy but just bomb here?

    As I know professional valuer will charge for valuing, hire a proper valuer first before you bomb. If you are not able to, means you are not able or not ready to own a house, just like those optimistic person waiting for market falls, peeing and barking around.


  32. Mainland
    January 19th, 2015 at 01:15 | #32

    Just call the panel banks of this project and you will have the loan amount
    they are willing to finance. Very simple.

    Why not ask for 800k if no right or wrong to sell your properties ?

  33. rookie
    January 19th, 2015 at 08:21 | #33

    Well well well, not yet OC already make chaos. Good sign, more critics, the better it is.
    The entrance of the condo is still pending for final touch up, can see the roof top tennis court lights up during night time. Fantastic!
    My 2 cents, this developer is trying to build up the reputation for their first project in northern region. Hopefully the workmanship and quality of the materials are up to luxury par.

    @Ah Girl
    Look like you easily heat up, a person like this can’t make good judgement.You are entitled to your opinion but I think you should not be in property market. Or again my advise to you, go and invest a little money to gain more knowledge about property market.
    I am buying one unit in Tamarin by E&O, what negative opinion you can can give? is it beside the seaside is consider as a leak? because the vibration from the sea?

    January 20th, 2015 at 13:11 | #38

    @andry bird

    Tamarind or Tamarin ? Tamarind is by E&O. Tamarin is fake product, by yourself kut.
    Seaside no leak, no vibration also, just beware of Tsunami waves water gush, rush in, strong wind blow in, not leak one.

    If bubble really happened, I think the significant impact could have happen on the million dollars properties but not the one less than 500k kuah. Price may be constant for a while. Anyhow, with the population increasing, people still need shelter. So, house is still in demand.
    If hard to sell with high price, still can rent out …

  44. mahsing
    January 22nd, 2015 at 09:21 | #44

    Not every buyers who own < 500k property has strong holding power during bubble burst period. So, it may impact all.
