    Thanks for the info. That means there is no backyard, and car porch only 20ft.
    50ft length is good. You will get a bigger house

  12. eric
    April 27th, 2011 at 17:20 | #13

    Jason, it’s depend on individual preference. I don’t prefer the area near to cherry blosom there as that area congested with the existing residential there together with upcoming idaman cempaka, idaman iris, zan pavillion, setia green, tgt, riverside….. i prefer PV as close to 2nd link and township development by mahsing. On the other hand, some people might worry on congestion at the area near to 2nd link as well.. so depend … :)

    May 5th, 2011 at 06:43 | #23

    I just don’t understand. this kind of project is :-

    1) no garden
    2) not guarded
    3) unknown developer (quality concern)
    4) expensive as existing SPI (~800k), almost same price, 2.5 storey SPI, spacious

    why some ppl still go for it? for speculate, investing?? i know definately not for own stay

    PPTalk Admin
    May 5th, 2011 at 17:58 | #24

    As long as the buyer happy, why not :). Everyone has their personal preference. They just like the place, either for own stay or investment.

  24. Johnny
    May 5th, 2011 at 21:47 | #25

    Developer bear 60% of processing S&P fees.

  25. Johnny
    May 5th, 2011 at 21:59 | #26

    i feel worth than SP setia 2.5 storey because no need to pay maintenance fees. A lot of ppl don’t like 2.5 storey because master room at top level. Some ppl feel tired to climp up stair to master room. In future, i feel 2 storey house value worth than 2.5 storey.
    If you choose like have guarded and garden, i will recommend you go for condo or apartment. There you also can enjoy summing pool. PPl buy landed house because to avoid maintenance fees.

  26. kenny

    Kenny, Johnny.Enn,
    are you buying for speculation? if yes, good luck, the property bubble is almost over at penang. predict bubble burst ~2014. hope you still can make it.

    oo..btw, forgot to tell you. nowaday you can easily buy a landed house, but not easy to sell. unless your project is good location, good env like southday and SPI.

  29. Enn
    May 6th, 2011 at 14:04 | #30

    I will consider this units,just only due to my own preference as below:-

    -Double story with no backyard so can come to built up area 2000sqft (better that 3-story with same built up).
    -Surrounded by 50% landed and 50% condo/apartment.
    -~800K for landed is under my expectation.

  30. kenny
    May 6th, 2011 at 16:36 | #31

    Today, penang will hardly to get 2-story with spacious build up. For my own opinion, 800k for landed at island consider reasonable if comparing to singapore, HK….etc. again, this is only my view :-).

  31. Johnny
    May 7th, 2011 at 03:18 | #32

    Siara 81 is individual title, where southbay and one residence are stratitle. In long run, those individual title land are more value. We must consider this item when buy property.

  32. Dunno
    May 7th, 2011 at 16:19 | #33

    dun you guys feel un-secure when staying in such an expensive house with a proper guard/security? Especially if your family size is small (like less than 5).

    Hi Kenny,
    800k for landed in island consider reasonable? i doubt so, Penang island got nothing to justify for higher property price. Not like KL, KL development is keeped going, somemore now they are talking about MRT, greater KL..bla bla bla…the whole country’s tax money dump to KL. tell me, what do we have for Penang? Some factories and bridges? how to trigger penang economic like that.

    Hi Johnny,
    I dun agree with your tot, will that make a different if you are holding idividual or strate title? will you hard to sell due to that? will your house quality not same? if you go to KL take a look, which type of property is more “LAKU”. all is gated/guarded property. One of the reason is crime rate in KL is high, but i dun see it is low in Penang as well. Btw SPI is indivdual title.

  33. Dummie
    May 8th, 2011 at 12:58 | #34

    Agree with Dunno ..
    The property price has shot up more than 50% in two three years time..
    last year dec, i called an agent for a property,she said 350k , i said “deal”.
    but need one to two weeks time to do the background checking.
    After two weeks i called the agent again, she said 380k.
    I was angry and asked her how come?she told me that it was the current market price. and other buyer just offered that.
    Well, I said non sense and suspected she was frying the price , therefore called off the deal.

    today the property is still for sale , but the price has re-quoted to 420k.

    so my question is, Does it worth?Who is the last sucker.
    when is the bubble going to burst?

  34. dunno
    May 8th, 2011 at 14:28 | #35

    Banker and developers are the happiest when the price shot up. Why? you and I know that.
    1) for developer, it is straight fwd, higher price, higher profit, they care nothing on their project (quality, env, security) as long as someone commit and buy it once launch, thats all, done deal, money earn into their pocket even market crash on next month or next day. If raw material price shot up, they will cut material or use low end material. but if the raw material price go down, they do nothing.

    2) for banker, higher property price means higher bank loan amount taken by buyer/investor (assume most of the ppl take bank loan), that translates to earn more for bank.

    Beside SPI, SouthBay, One residences, i have no idea where can i find the best property –

  35. Johnny
    May 8th, 2011 at 23:23 | #36

    I don’t think SP setia is good place. Do you notice why so many ppl want to sell? If you want to know details, please go have a look. KL cannot compare with Penang island. KL have very very big land where Penang island short of land. Penang island is very similar like Singapore or Hong Kong. That why Penang landed house is most expensive in Malaysia.

    Hi Dunno, i suggest you wait until property burst only buy…..
    Stratitle mean you own the house but not own land. It same with you buy a apartment/Condo.

    May 9th, 2011 at 10:01 | #37

    Actually because SPI is a large project with hundreds unit of terraces & semi-D, it is no surprise that you see more units for sale compare to a smaller project. I have a few friends who were trying to buy a unit there, they are having difficulty to find a good unit.

    It is ideal that we wait for property burst before we buy, but I think most people worry what if it doesn’t burst? Investor can wait, but not genuine home buyer. Some people need a house to settle down for his family, some are hoping to get a house and get married :)

  37. FireDragon
    May 9th, 2011 at 11:17 | #38

    @Dunno. I agree with what has Johnny mentioned. Strata title means that you do not own the land. The developer may deposit the master title to bank to get loan/funding for their future projects. The worst is what if the developer file bankrupsy as what has happened to Pernas at N-park? SPI & Soutbay should be less worried since they are strong foundamental developer. Watchup for One Resisdence. Ideal have bad reputation before. Think twice.

    May 9th, 2011 at 12:03 | #39

    Actually once the Strata title is issued and registered under your name, then you can sell the property without the consent of the developer. With good developer, you will usually get your strata title within 3 years.

    What happen to N-park is that Pernas bankrupt before the strata title being issued to the individual owner.

  39. dunno
    May 9th, 2011 at 14:05 | #40

    Hey Johhny, lot people sell their unit doesn’t mean the project is not good. nowaday, most of the buyers are speculator and wish to sell their units quickly after OC. SPI is the 1st big landed project in Penang Island (>600 units launched), in term of ratio, definitely more units for sale in the market. As long as the price is good, i think SPI is still good to buy.
    -Freehold : no issue like what you said on land ownership concern
    -House ready: no need to wait for 2 years
    -good price: relative cheap compare to siarra81 2 storey vs SPI 2.5 storey.
    -good env: security, elavated landed, nice landscape.

    Unless you are talking about want to speculate, then SPI maybe not that ideal candidate

  40. Johnny
    May 9th, 2011 at 21:50 | #41

    Hi Dunno,
    I don’t think SPI sell at good price. Now you can easily get 750K to 800K. Do you know why they rush to sell? Because i heard developer gave 2 years maintenance fee free. After that they have to pay maintenance fees. That why a lot investor start to sell now. Usually big project cannot sell at good price reason because too congested.
    I agree with FireDragon on bad reputation of Ideal. This company has financial problem before it changed company name to Ideal after this. Big company does not represent stabil company.

    Yes with good developer, the strata title can easily get within 3 years. But strata title is forever strata title. It cannot be change to single title. It make not different with you stay at apartment.
    Strata title house cannot simply do renovation on outside body house. No freedom at all. It like apartment/condo concept…

  41. kenny
    May 9th, 2011 at 23:14 | #42

    Yes. agreed. I have visited SPI before, ~30% house looking for sell… big competition caused
    price stagnant. Peference low density with hope high demand. :-)

    May 10th, 2011 at 11:42 | #43

    The most worrying part is whether can get strata title or not. Especially when the developer is not reliable, that is when we need to worry. But as soon as the strata title is issued, there should not be any different in ownership rights between individual and strata title. Except that instead of owning a specific piece of land, you will have a share in a large piece of land.

    I think it all depends on individual preference. there are pro and cons. Personally i think if the JMB is strong, a strata title community is good because everyone work together to maintain the gated area. But then if the management is bad, then there is no different from MPPP :)

    In KL, there are some very well managed strata housing projects. Like Desa Parkcity, the environment are so nice, clean and peaceful. Best thing I like about that place is that you won’t see any gigantic renovation and no eye soaring paint work. Everything looks original and well maintained.

    May 10th, 2011 at 11:58 | #44

    Since there are so much concern about Strata title, I have published a short article about Strata vs Individual title from legal standpoint. Hopefully this will clarify some doubts.


  44. Dunno
    May 10th, 2011 at 15:50 | #45

    Finally, our Mr Kenny and Johny telling the true. they wish to buy and sell quickly to flip their money.

    i would say the price is too high to goreng now. good luck.

  45. FireDragon
    May 11th, 2011 at 15:17 | #46

    @Ken Strata is forever unbeatable with Individual title. If you own strata like One residence, do you allow to re-paint your house fencing or front wall with any favaroute colour that you prefer? Do you allow to change the auto-gate with any material or any stylist that you like? You still need to worry whether your neightbours is paying maintenance fees or else the facilities will be not under well maintenance? With all the limitation as above, I personally still feel more comfortable with individual title. At least I can make sure my house looks oustanding than my neighbours with “HAM HAM” renovation. :)

    May 11th, 2011 at 15:30 | #47

    I agree to your point too. There is no right or wrong. We are here to find the right neighborhood to live in. :)

  47. Johnny
    May 11th, 2011 at 21:21 | #48

    Strata title landed house is almost same like people always said ” Low cost or third grade house”. Same like last time the land owner build house themself and then sell to you with share title.
    A lot of ppl bought the one residence on first phase do complaining to developer didn’t explain clearly on the land title when they purchased that time.
    Do you know why one residence sell cheap? Land area is 22×70, sell at 768k. Because of strata title. This what i heard personnely from Ideal sale representative. If Individual title, it worth more than 800k. So think twice before you purchase strata title house. Think for your future generation.

    Interesting comment!
    Buying G&G Strata property = 3rd grade=low cost = no future?
    Interesting….there must be many unintelligent people in KL…some more paying almost double than the individual title in DESA Parkcity.

    Come on la… both individual and G&G have their own weaknesses too.
    Individual title is ok if you buy in established and prime location areas. The likelihood of the crime and unknown neighbours and foreigners infiltrate your neighnournood lesser. U go and ask those stay near to the Kampung and foreigners about their crime rate.

    I bet u after the One Res & the neighboring non gated crime cases statistics in next 2 years, will tell u which is better.

    Why need to slander so much….pls stop the envy, wait for Phase 4 la.

  51. FireDragon
    May 13th, 2011 at 11:01 | #52

    Hahaha……….. siara81 forum become so hot but most of the people talking about Strata vs Individual instead of the project itself. No offencing for strata but indivual will be more preference. No matter what, as long as it is not lease hold landed, both looks good for me. :)

  52. em
    May 13th, 2011 at 18:34 | #53

    We not really need G&G. The maintenance fee start with RM200 per month, 5 years or 10 years, it easily double up the free; Let’s said, 10 years, still RM200 per month, mean spent RM200 x 12 x 10 = RM24K; with this big $, you can get super high tech security system by your own; if the join management is not good, this because wasted, you think condo no security issue? Do not forget, after you pay the $ for guard, you still need to spend minimum of $ for base security; do not tell me you dare to stay a hours house without alarm system and grill after you pay the maintenance fee? To me, I trust high tech equipment far more than the guard in G&G.

    Any comment on surrounding about Siara 81…. i visited site, few items observed
    1. Very close to waste recycle factory at up hill – some noise level from factory
    2. Close to power cable station, any risk ?
    3. Close to old houses (last raw).. good ?

  54. Johnny
    May 13th, 2011 at 22:38 | #55

    If i have choice to choose SP setia or One residence, i will choose SP setia. Because SP setia is individual title even though it gated.

  55. Pg
    May 13th, 2011 at 23:25 | #56

    haha…now i know where this guy have the vested interest. No wonder so much bad mouthing others.

    Again another guy speaking without statistics. Generally if security in a condo is worst than normal apartment then these security firm really need to be fire. Dont talk about GUARANTEE…..there is no such thing except DEATH and taxes.

    Of course G&G also can occur theft but what is the risk? The thief must be real smart to purposely choose G&G than normal house to steal:)

    G&G is a new growing market for Penang. Do u know why G&G SouthBay price touching $1.1M? Do i need to explain more?
    There are so many enviuos neighbours who really curse themselves for missing the deal. Then we are seeing people here go to forum to tembak One Res.

  56. Johnny
    May 14th, 2011 at 10:31 | #57

    i believe today still a lot of ppl dunno landed house got strata title. i have one friend aware only after he bought. Then after they will question developer this and that. A lot of developer very smart, they didn’t mentioned this when advertised that time. That why no surprise you can see a lot them give up and end up to sell to make some profit.

  57. Pg
    May 14th, 2011 at 19:32 | #58

    Let’s consider legal action against such unethical developers.
    There are ministry website too. CAP etc. Why just silence and come here to cry.

    Less go for more ethical developer and pay more just may be $100k to $200k extra.
    Not much la…or buy from desperate sellers/investors who condemn other project la :)

    Kevin :Any comment on surrounding about Siara 81…. i visited site, few items observed1. Very close to waste recycle factory at up hill – some noise level from factory2. Close to power cable station, any risk ?3. Close to old houses (last raw).. good ?

    1.) I hear that this factory going to move out soon. (from developer)
    2.) Which power station. I don’t see any. Can you please descibe more?
    3.) Majority is Chinese (as being told by developer). I think those is 3rd guarant house. Don’t know whether have future development on this piece of land or not.

    I’m just worry that the empty land surrounding this project will be occupied for high rise. Personally don’t like the environment and somemore the price is a bit expensive.

    I called to the developer on last Friday. Being told that no booking deposit is allowed. Must straight away to pay 10% & sign for SNP. What??? At least must give me some time to get loan confirmation letter from bank first right? Feel really nonsense & decided to give up.

    Extra info : Developer just bear 50% of legal fees during SNP. Title transfer fee not included. 15 units left only.

  59. kenny
    May 16th, 2011 at 13:53 | #60

    @FireDragon, the power station which supply voltage to Balik Pulai is located at 3rd guarant house. Around ~100 feet distance away to siara 81. For the waste recyle factory to be move out soon, which are refering at hill site area. right ?? ( not the beside summerhill).
    2 weeks ago, i called up and informed with left ~6 units ( excluded BUMI lots) but now with 15 units left – many ppl give up just within 2 weeks time ?? Overall this project is a bit expensive but one thing good is 2-storey with spacious which is hardly to get it at island now

    May 16th, 2011 at 16:12 | #61

    Actually not many people who are interested can afford. Sometimes when the buyer’s loan is rejected, they will then release the units for others.

    May 17th, 2011 at 17:06 | #63

    That’s why One Residence selling like hot cake even during pre-launch.
    22X75 make a visible difference in spacious concept.
    Also the layout design is very important in making u feel space.
    Most of the 2nd and 3rd room are too small for the typical 20*70 unit.

  63. Johnny
    May 17th, 2011 at 21:09 | #64

    One residence selling good bcos of bigger size and cheaper. Tree residence offer land size 22×70 not 22×75. But don’t forget, it is strata title not single title like SP setia. I still prefer SP setia, famous and financial stable developer and house design also look nice.

  64. C
    May 17th, 2011 at 21:35 | #65

    again three residence prices are much expensive compare one residence with smaller land.. 768k with 22×70

    Good developer matters especially during initial stage. It make u feel good for short term for sure. But as someone said….how much extra u want to pay….If difference is RM50k i m ok but, so much extra they want to pinch from us. Is it fair?

    Simple question does anyone still remember developer for Island Glades? Or Batu Lanchand terrace? WHo bothers so much ? :)

  67. Duno
    May 18th, 2011 at 08:51 | #68

    All in all, here is what determine a good property (regardless strata tittle or not):-

    1) neigbourhood: all your neighbours are highly educated. so no fire fighting in future. no worry on facility/garden being vandalism, no worry on maintananee fee not paid.
    2) Environment: security, fresh and greenry env, garden for jogging, playground for kid.
    3) Location: no serious traffic jam, near to school for kid.

    Err… can you please explain what do you try to say about Island glades & batu lanchang? I think those old house sell at very reasonable price in the past 30 years ago. Most of the white collar people like teachers, goverment servant is affordable for the price during that century. Anything wrong?

    May 20th, 2011 at 07:40 | #74

    As what i know, property price will no hv history with drop so significant by 20%. even at economic crisis pevious, penang property price still stgnant at market value.. will it be possible for burst ?? if true, many penang folks might in suffer.

  74. PR
    May 20th, 2011 at 09:15 | #75

    wa ! 20 % ! what is the basis that you r referring to for such significant drop ?

    May 20th, 2011 at 10:34 | #76

    The only time Penang property price will drop is when the whole electronics and bio industries collapse. But it doesn’t look like the case now.

    Appreciate to RM1mil. is possible. Even at a natural land price appreciation in Penang of 5% per year, new launches for similar kind of property would have breach 1 million mark. But of course that doesn’t mean sub-sale of Siara 81 in 5 years later can definitely sell at 1 million.

    That will comes back to the kind of neighborhood that you are staying with. :)

    May 20th, 2011 at 21:37 | #77

    Again here come another unsubstantiated allegations. This is not a paint ball game.
    No statistics, no analysis provided. In general in fairly good location 20% drop is too remote to occur.

    We have been played to the tune and music of the developers (regardless of the so called good developers or local notorious type) for too long. They set the price then we sapu. We have overlooked those good value good locations sub-sales.

    Hence there shall be some corrections on the horizon but remember it could be a real “short correction” before another upswing. This is hard to predict.

    Penang island property is going grow like what was happening on Singapore. A lot of singaporean not afford to have landed house today bcos of not grabbed the opportunity during 10 to 20 years back. Now you say the price high, later 10 years you will say terrible high.
    Like past experience, when asian and world economy crisis, penang landed house not suffered at all. Do you know why? Penang island not like Kl and other places have big of land.

    No one can predict what will happened in next 3 years. I ask around, even banker or valuer can’t predict for next year. If someone buying for own stay, regardless what, just go ahead. Self satisfition is unvalueable. If invest for flipping then have to think twice. Strong data & satistic to show that the supply is more than demand at Bayan Lepas area in next 3 years. If you can’t flip it at a good price or can’t even rent your property out, it’s look like buying a big rope to tie up yourself. The emotional suffer will be the most painful hurt. Good luck for those flipper. :)

    More and more project will coming up to penang,”Greater penang TP” announced by Najib, tunnel linked SBU and Gurney, bullet train from singapore-kl-penang-thailand-china project……….from sin to penang >3 hours. So, penang housing price in a growing stage now.When the pricing reach to a max point,housing price enter into maturity stage,this wil only happen when all the project is completed and no more future development.Lastly, when the houses supply over demand, then only enter decline stage, this is basic lifecycle teory. i do believe when our penang population is increase,penang land get lesser and lesser, the price definitely will grow.Other factor like KL and JB property pricing geting higher will influence penang also.Because,this make penang property become attrative to buyer.limitted supply to penang property will prevent the bubble to burst.Property price in singapore may be will drop, but will recover very soon and reach a new record high.U want to know what happen to penang property in future, singapore is our’s mirror.only 15% ppl can stay in landed property, a few stay in their own’s condo/apartment, other can only rent or stay in goverment flat .This is what happen to singaporean now.

    May 23rd, 2011 at 21:01 | #84

    i am very agreed what FIA comments. Penang land will get lesser and lesser especially at island. i remembered 20 years back, one single storey terrace house cost RM80K (20×90)at sungai ara. Now they sell about RM500K, about 6 times.
    Then i also a friend bought a single strorey landed house at batu kawan about also RM80K (24×90) in 15 years back. But today only worth about RM130K. It worst than you put yr money in the Bank.
    So location is very important when you buy a house.

    location of Siara 81 is good.very near to Jusco(5 min),giant,banking.Actually, changkat sungai ara is very suitable for retiring ppl.Many ppl jogging over there after 5pm,with fresh air,and birds singging.it is a kampung inside the town,but very convenient to reach everywhere in the town. This place is more strategic compare to relau.

    Johnny,can u share ur opinion, why u choosing Siara 81 instead of setia greens?

  86. Johnny
    May 24th, 2011 at 21:59 | #87

    PPl work in Bayan Lepas factory like to stay in Sungai Ara bcos 5 min away from their work place and also to airport. A lot of expatriate workers stay here. Sungai ara has a lot of bunglo and semidetach house. This was bring up the living standard at Sungai Ara. You are feel secure and comfort when you stay with high living standard ppl. No surprise you see now the condo at Regency height can sell as high as 500K just 1250 square fits.
    The traffic at sungai ara is very good not jammed at all.

    For me, i will go for Siara 81 :-) 2-storey is good enough. no need pay addtional > 100k to get 3rd storey. This will help to release a lot of loan burden. In further, setia green land only in 20×65 instead of siara 20×70. i have visited siara 81 sample house, look spacious :-). One thing no good is bed rooms ( except master bed room) are kind of small…

    The project is good but a little bit expensive. That why it needs to advertise in news paper. Today is also came up in Kwang Hwa. Some buyer not trust small developer. Some buyer comments they should sell cheaper. i don’t think it have problem near 3rd guarant old house bcos the back is facing not the front house facing them.

    For property costs 800K, stamp duty for title transfer alone will cost 1%*100K + 2%*400k + 0.5%*300K = rm10.5k excluding legal fee

  104. Dunno
    May 30th, 2011 at 23:16 | #105

    In this case , Siara81 does not sound attractive at all. When ppl buy expensive property, they don’t have a lot cash and developer normally provide 5% d/payment, free title transfer, free legal fee and free interest.

    btw, total title transfer + stamp duty + legal fee should be ~30k to 35k.

    Dunno, agreed with u that the expensive project should provide fees waiver. But looking at today projects, no many developer will wailing to provide free for title transfer, free legal fee and free interest ( except for setia green abd prestiga V – free SAP, Loan and title transfer).. One residence also will no cover for title trasnfer :-(. Recent new project launch Minden garden 3 storey asking for 989k with only cover for SAP fee :-(. No much choice…….

    hi all, if any of you are looking for new double storey, you should check out Setia Vista.

    price vice, cheap 700k to 750k (of course the land is smaller, 20×70)
    location vice, almost same with Siara81.
    come with 24hrs cctv and guarded.

    Hi all,
    I went into the house at SIARA 81, it looks so spacious, especially the living hall, master bedroom and family hall on 1st floor floor, the ceiling seems higher, well ventilated and lighted, unlike other terrace house which usually dark and small for the family area on the 1st floor. Not bad the finishes, the layout and space planning is also better, overall feeling — – the house is elegant. Good for my own stay. Anyone knows which bank gives good offer now?
    I think Setia Vista definitely will not be my choice because the environment is surrounded by so many low cost apartments, so different … Setia Vista building footprint is only 20’x45′ only right ?

    Dear all,

    I interested on this project, but seem like this project is so expensive which can go up RM440/sq ft..

    As i knew that last time my fren bought ijm project-light linear 2009 ogos for 380/sqft.light linear is with so called international features,green building,fittings are all branded,big landscape area with 0.20cent per sqft maintanance charge. if it is 440/sqft,it must need international unit and not only normal bare finished unit without fittings.

    The advantage of the meridien is we only pay 3% downpayment but 440/sqft we can get better with IJM project.

    Pls comment..tq

    xiaowen, i agree with you. Siara81 looks so much better than Setia Vista with a little premium on top of it. If we are expanding Setia Vista to the back, the price comes very close to Siara81. In the future, we can renovate the house to whatever we like, but it’s impossible to change the location!

    The only problem with SIARA81 is not many choices now :(

    Siara 81 design is actually not bad at all also, would have consider also if it’s inside Setia development.

    well, i think they will not allow you step in setia green facilities. Being try go to view hse at setia pearl island and setia vista but the guard stop me guard hse. Setia very smart in controlling their landscape to be same as gated and you very hard to access into their resident area, you can understand what i mean if you had visit setia vista and SPI before.

    Yes, thats why i said they will use landscape to control all these. now setia green landscape was 6ft higher than neighbor 3story. You can visit SPI see how they work on this. further more the only entry to setia green is from changkat sg.ara 6.

  135. invest
    June 17th, 2011 at 15:34 | #136

    Contrary to your agent’s friend statement, many potentitial subsale buyers wants to buy setia vista but not many unit available for sales especially good unit (no odd shape, near garden, facing south…). Majority of setia vista buyers are for own stay including my relative’s one. I was with my relative in Setia Vista one day and there were agents bring in buyers asking for units for sales after site visit but no many are willing to sell as majority owners want to renovate and stay. Buyers who come and look at the site them selves will like the place a lot as Setia Vista is well balance in environment and basic amenity accessibility. There are low cost apartments nearby Setia Vista as part of state gov regulation which applied to all housing project. Once you enter the Setia Vista guarded compound, the environment is different with the garden and reserve forest at the back, where you can see eagles, dragron flies and bird chirping in the garden. Wet market is nearby too. Wanted to buy Semi-d at Setia Vista (10units) but fully booked d. Siarra 81 design not bad but it is not guarded, like the buildup and design. Setia Green good if not it is 3 S. All these projects are nearby, believe one day it will fully linked up with new road when the area is fullly developed. Cheers!

    Yes. Siara get in disadvantage with no guarded and landscape. In fact i like Setia Green env so much but in 3S with price a bit expensive. Siara left with 2 units which no in good location ( near to TNB). Might wait for BUMI lots but not sure how much price will going to increase :-(

    i am giving you a simple and clear answer. If you like the env and facilities, you should go for setia project. Don’t hope buying any lousy project like siara with location nearby can share ppl’s.. everything always come with a price. ppl’s in SG pay a premium for the facililty and env.
    change the other way round, if i request you to pay RM50k for building a garden or env and share with neigbourhood , will you willing to do that?

    clever ppl will know whether guarded is good or not.

    if your mind is so narrow, i might want to remind you. guarded in landed house is for security reason, not because of forming condo type of committee to control resident.

    you might not want to end up living in a dangerious house that high chance target of robber or pencuri.. take a good example is house in greenlane, the houses always got broke in.

  167. C
    June 21st, 2011 at 15:28 | #168

    No doubt, guarded is definitely good for security. Any good security and landscape maintenance will involve cost to sustain. Looking SG with setup so great for the facilities, pond and landscape. Question, how to sustain and cost to maintenance ?? This involve good committee and commitment from the residents. if no good maintenance will turn up because messy and bad. Sustaining always is big problem

  168. em
    June 21st, 2011 at 16:59 | #169

    I already post the comment before. RM24,000 for 10 years of maintenance fee, plus you still need ~5K for basic alarm & CCTV; meaning, you spend on ~RM30,000 for the 10 years; it really can start have super high tech home security (e.g. you can consult Legenda@Southbay home security vendor) with the same amount when move in.
    I am sure RM30,000 is more than enough for secure few thousands sqf house. Do not tell me you want to block those bad ppl like in Die Hard movie :)
    Again, per my own view, not really trust those G&G guard; the can be good guy or bad guy; high tech home security far better.
    I not saying G&G vs non G&G which one have better security; what I mean here is your house security should base on your house compound, not the taman compound.

    Pond and jogging track will maintain by MPPP after 1 year, SPI already hand over to MPPP now according to setia sales. I am confident with LGE gov to sustain the green environment in SG.

    30k 10 years?
    I already confirm with Setia, 1st year will be free and after that not more than RM100 per month for all inclusive (CCTV, guard). SPI only RM70 per month. I believed you not affordable to buy one million since 100 ~ 200 you also count like this, honestly 10 years 30k for me consider nothing la bro.Quality of living ma, to buy setia green monthly repayment almost 5k for 30 years loan, are you affordable? Before you comment this don’t time your own situation, because you are not genius buyer and you are not setia sales target. wakakaka

    Yes, totally agreed with you. have to work with parallel, i don’t like midnight got car park in-front my house (mostly malay sit in car chatting and kissing) or patrolling around.

    What’s so bad about having extra security like GnG? No one is forcing you to purchase SG. Some ppl like some ppl don’t. No issue..

    I share the same view with @invest and @C, having extra security is definately better than none. This will also come down on how well it is being managed. I believe genuine buyer of SG will have no problem installing the so called security system also if they wanted too…

    You can have the best security system in the market installed but it doesn’t 100% guarantee your home will not be a target.. All this GnG and security system is all about prevention. I think you will definately have more peace of mind on having one than none at all…

    SG committe will cooperate together to think of the best solution to prevent “others” to intrude SG compound. For those who are afford to buy SG,they are not mind to pay more for the maintenance fee, security is their main concern, right!

    Walk directly? i dont think so.because this area is exclusive privileges for SG resident.THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC AREA.

    June 22nd, 2011 at 03:03 | #180

    I start wondering majority talking at here, whether they are afford to buy a close to 1 million house. Are they buy for staying? doubt not, i guess they are buying just for flipping and somemore they are not afford to stay in as well.

    to me, if a person afford and willing to stay in a 1million house, 1st and very 1st thing is not the money, it is the environment and the security concern the person will have. Will a person paying a 1miilon ringgit and still care about the extra cost like a few thousands? whatever money can buy, i think the person will go for it, but location, garden, landscape env and guarded are the things that a person can not simply buy or build on top of his/her house.

    June 22nd, 2011 at 12:48 | #181

    Hi all,
    To my understanding, as long as the units are individual titles, any public road can be accessed by all public, no one including the security guard can stop the public from entering into the scheme. As for the parks, since it will be handed over to MPPP and it will become a public park, it is just like an ordinary park, any public can go in.

    June 22nd, 2011 at 13:16 | #182

    With today moral standard in this surrounding, you will be fool yourself if you think G&G give your extra protection; Those multimillion property make it as G&G is for marketing trick to let ppl ‘think’ have extra security.

    Yes, few hundred is not much for those can afford landed property, buy your $ is just go down the drain; it serve you nothing.

    Those are in here should experience when rental condo/apartment before have own property. Simple a teh tarik or soda drink give to guard at guardhouse, you can enter without any issue, not even need to register your ID. You can going and out enjoy free facility.

    Trust me, the guard is more scare than you, and you can have tone of reasons and make them let you going in/out easily.

    Is does not matter me can afford multimillion property or not; I just want to point out the G&G, really do not give the extra security. And worst, you lost all your privacy, cause someone know when you are in your house and when is not.

    June 23rd, 2011 at 02:01 | #195

    guys, i guess for those that not agree with guarded sevice, here are the reason:-

    1) money is concern to them, even a few hundreds. Susah-susah stay in a landed house and not flexi enough to fork out extra 1 to 2 hundreds. So, definitely a landed house that required close to 1 million will not suite to them as they need to pay installment like 3 to 4k a monthly. What for? ? I guess to everyone regardless rich or poor, condo or landded, safety always a concern, that is why extra security service like guarded, cctv, guard patrolling are better than none or just home alarm.

    2) different background. Ppl grown up from higher educated family, they know what is most important to their need, safety or money. of course some ppl just want everything, but in this world no such thing like that. just like, you pay cheap to company to get a guard/patrolling service, do expect a low quality service. Same rule apply to every where, supermarket grocery, handphone, air plane seat (biz or economy)….

    To me, a good housing security must come with technology nowadays. Like lots of security surveillance cameras, digital security locks, alarm sensor and etc. We cannot trust other human to safeguard our homes in a country where we cannot even put our trust in cops.

    As long as the security is supported by such technology, I don’t mind to pay more fees. Otherwise it will be a total waste of money to pay extra for G&G.
