    Yes, is true.. I try to find the site, but unfortunately it is extremely far from Balik Pulau Town. Along the way to the project site, I felt like i was in Kedah. So, i give up. It’s too far!

    I went to see the location today, nice place, a bit far from city but i’m ok with it! Actually if u get used to it, distance is not a problem.. ppl there are very nice..

    March 3rd, 2012 at 00:14 | #10

    That is not as far as what u all commented here. It’s just 5 mins away from BP town. Very nice place, just like Penang town area 20 years ago. Fresh air and good environment make us healthier and more relaxed. Furthermore, along the project, 3 mins away, there is a future project going on. Tesco is coming to Air puteh just beside the newly built international school. Will be a good place to stay! I booked 1 unit during the fair at QB.

    really got news Tesco want come in Balik Pulau?

  18. Ah Wong
    March 12th, 2012 at 17:36 | #18

    I think buy Balik Pulau is definitely better than main land ( BM,Butterworth,etc). The reasons are too many projects in main land, lands are plenty. In Penang island, land getting scarce and most projects are built in reclaimed lands now. True, development in Balik Pulau is slow but it is steady and promising. In main land, it is stagnant, over supply and more traffic lights.

  19. Janice
    March 12th, 2012 at 17:52 | #19

    Yes, I agree. I also do not want to miss this opportunity to own a landed property in Penang island. Other places like Bayan Baru, Sungai Ara I missed already . Too expensive now. Now, Balik Pulau , I can afford, I will buy. After all , I am not alone to take this risk, many people bought houses in Balik , check Botanical CT and other projects. Less than RM500K for a landed in Penang Island address, still want to wait? I would rather buy and join the big group of residents in Balik Pulau, wait patiently for development than later, regret when the price shot up to RM not affordable, when Tesco, universities finally materialise.

  20. Nick
    March 12th, 2012 at 18:05 | #20

    Some people wait and wait, cautious and expect development to arrive first. But again, by that time landed property will be more than affordable. Now, condo , new projects also at least RM 500K for normal slightly bigger 1100sq feet. No land , pay maintenance fees life time. I also buy the promising dreams in Balik Pulau, Penang Island.

    If you want to buy houses in BM, Butterworth, etc , any time can buy. So many projects , I check on line, a lot houses on sale also, some Taman also not sure where. But, very reasonable price and some with Renovation.

    My opinion is buy Balik Pulau now, buy a hope and dream. Tell your friends , you own a landed in ISLAND! WOW
    One day, you really get a promotion at any factory in Prai/Kulim, that time slowly look for a Semi D also not late. Offer s plenty there .

    Actually, I also registered Double Storey during CNY at Queensbay. I showed the brochure to my parents. My father told me last time, Penang Island Glades exactly like Balik Pulau, that time a Double Storey house only cost RM 75K but not many people are keen. Well, if not for my father s story, I would have hesitated. I would rather bought a landed property in Penang Island that later not so develop than regret not buying one. After all, I can afford the loan. So, I Am ANOTHER one who buy the Balik Pulau Dream!

  26. Jeft Wong
    March 13th, 2012 at 19:23 | #26

    Actually, there are quite a lot of projects in balik pulau.
    But many of the projects has less than 100 units. Small area only except may be Botanical CT. This one is big project, that s why the whole Taman will be big, may be can afford own rukun tetangga, commitee,etc. good la, anything bad also, you have big group purchasers to fight the developer !
    Because big project , got big budget for landscaping/river beutification. Good promise la. still cheap for the 1st phase, later will be more expensive. I visited both the booth in Gurney and Queensbay, then paid deposit for a double storey during CNY just like Ching Ching . My friends all busy enjoy CNY, I pening that time , but I still bought one because I think the developer also has completed projects in Penang. Maybe not like IJM or SP Setia but the price is reasonable

  27. Uma Devi
    March 13th, 2012 at 19:27 | #27

    Can buy already?
    I visited the website , for registration only
    Still got booth or not at Queensbay / Gurney?

  28. Wai Kheong
    March 13th, 2012 at 19:47 | #28

    Go to the developer office and enquire.
    By the time soft launch, all good location unit taken already.
    My wife and I went to the site, yes, not like very develop .
    But, we like the primary school nearby,SRJK (C), ours is very young family.
    Looking forward to move in 5-6 years later

  29. Steven
    March 13th, 2012 at 20:00 | #29

    Hello Wai Kheong, we paid 5% deposit too for DOuble storey. Also we like the Primary school at walking distance. My wife work in the factory, bayan lepas. Don t mind travelling if the kids school nearby. Everything now also about kids

  30. Chai Wah
    March 13th, 2012 at 23:58 | #30

    Sounds interesting, I like the design of the houses too.
    The park is impressive within the Taman. Some more, got a beautiful river
    In fact, since this project is a big project with many residents, they can pool resources/money to form community group. You just need 2-3 active residents to lead the group. Wah! if possible can make a gated community ! may be too early to think about that :)

    I also booked 1 unit during Chinese New Year. Paid 5% deposit.
    So happy that i managed to get the desired unit. Because that time, 2 places were doing the preview. Imagine one group in Gurney promoting, then another group in Queensbay also trying to convince potential buyers. I that time afraid my choice of unit already taken by another buyer as i wanted to visit the site first with my wife.

    Then, we rushed to Queensbay and managed to book la :)

  31. Jason Lim
    March 14th, 2012 at 00:02 | #31

    Now, no more in Gurney or Queensbay, right?
    When is the next preview or Soft Launch.
    Better buy now before the price of houses in Balik Pulau naik harga……
    Actually, the 2nd link will be a good news or not to Balik Pulau, any opinions…

    Thank you

  32. Kok
    March 14th, 2012 at 00:04 | #32

    Not sure also,
    Is it the same, Prestige III and Summer Cottage?
    I remember reading about Summer Cottage in Kwong Wah newspaper during Chinese New Year, Good to buy or not?

  33. James
    March 14th, 2012 at 11:18 | #33

    Hi, Jason,
    I personally think that 2nd link could help (but not by much) to Balik Pulau development in short term, not until the traffic bottle-neck at Teluk Kumbar town get resolved.
    However, if u plan to get landed property in the island, i think this is the time… 😀

  34. Faith_Thong
    March 14th, 2012 at 16:28 | #34

    What I like this project is the landscaping /trees/flowers in the project. It is like a high end residential project in Putrajaya I read in The Edge magazine. Hopefully, the developer will keep the promise as advertised in the brochure. I don’t think the S&P that we sign later will safeguard this nice / beautiful parks. Usually, the document only mention our house in very basic terms. I also booked one already. First thing, let,s hope all units sold out so that the possibility of Developer to spend some of their profits in landscaping will be higher

  35. Wilson
    March 14th, 2012 at 16:37 | #35

    I also booked one already. Don’t worry Faith.
    I have faith this project will be sold out. Last time, during preview during CNY when the site is not even ready, most of the good direction units sold out already. People keep on with Wait and See attidute about Balik Pulau but imagine this project alone about at least 400 unit landed will be occupied. There are many other projects too. Come the official soft launch in April or May, 1st phase will be overwhelmed. Most people not aware yet about this Freehold reasonable landed

  36. Kk
    March 14th, 2012 at 17:44 | #36

    Like very organised, with a big landscaping park in between . I understand that only super expensive residential area will have this type of feature. May be, the developer compensate the kampung status Balik Pulau with this attraction, mine also young family. So, we buy because of the promise of a park, playing ground for the kids and also the primary school nearby , the SRJK(C).

    Some time, you see other landed property in Penang Island. May be , 2 rows only and the surrounded by crowded flats . The traffic there no need to mention , we all know. Price also RM800K over. Hardly conducive for kids. We are willing to travel although we work in a hospital at Georgetown area

  37. Karen
    March 14th, 2012 at 18:04 | #37

    True. Last time, I went to visit 2 projects . One in Jelutong, dont know what Residence, next to place of worship. 2 rows only. The whole area super crowded with flats /apartments. Yes, landed property but like very desperated.

    The other one behind the Bukit Dumbar, you will see TNB station first before turning in. It is like, you see all the flats , then suddenly , 3 storey terrace houses. Cars parked every where, every direction. I mean your neighbourhood is very important.
    This projects seems to offer a same status neighbourhood, I don’t know, may be mostly young professionals with young family.

  38. Anne
    March 14th, 2012 at 18:14 | #38

    Go buy E&O project, nearby is the Tesco, Tanjung Bungah.
    Also nice like this one, whole area your Taman with parks.
    But, should be not in hundred thousands, sad, no money to buy.
    Why other people got so much money ar?

  39. June
    March 14th, 2012 at 18:37 | #39

    Never mind one , to be happy and to have happy family, not necessary to be rich one. Even if bank is willing to give us a 2 generation loans , let s say 60 years la, you stay with super rich neighbours , you yourself also not easy. People s daughter study College also drive Mini Cooper, expensive car. We thought our Altis is our dream car already . Come la, stay in Balik Pulau la. go eat durian together

  40. Kenneth
    March 14th, 2012 at 19:10 | #40

    Not to say sour grapes, people who can afford super expensive housing area like The Light, South Bay or Tanjung Bungah definitely good and blessed people . Neither do we need to have inferiority complex. We have our own life and happy family.
    This landed is good enough to me, to have a primary school within walking distance is indeed a privel

  41. Ammli
    March 14th, 2012 at 19:27 | #41

    I am buying the single storey one , very very long NEVER seen the single storey terrace in Penang Island! Mostly 3 storey terrace now , rich people can la. work factory , where got money . Later, they might built , 4 storey terrace , sell you 2 millions. No eye to see la. I stay in Balik Pulau better, save money from paying parking , movie, unnecessary shopping of never ending salein shopping complex. At night, sleep early la. kids walk to school , nearby only. Got season, eat durian loh

  42. Zeen
    March 14th, 2012 at 19:48 | #42

    I also buy the single storey one , i from Balik Pulau one. No distractions for children, and adults also! I saw a lot of people cycle in Balik Pulau with all the caps, tight tight shirt, racing bike , good for exercise. Instead of every time family outing go shopping complex, go to parks , cycling , better la

  43. Jacky
    March 14th, 2012 at 20:02 | #43

    Hi Zeen, since u r from Balik Pulau, take which road is more safety? from Relau? or from Airport to genting? i know teluk bahang is out already, very dangerous..

  44. Allan
    March 15th, 2012 at 10:09 | #44

    From factory area, i use the road linking Pekan Genting in Balik Pulau with Teluk Kumbar. Once a winding hill road, but now better with the upgrading works that actually reduce the number of sharp cornerings.

    The main work upgrading is not yet fully complete.
    The completion of the Balik Pulau Hill Road is expected to spur development of Balik Pulau, the road will make property in Balik Pulau more attractive.

    Actually, there is another way to Balik Pulau, but this way is not common use. Since Balik Pulau located near beaches and a lot of jetties were built for fisherman. So, you can take a boat to Balik Pulau. Buy a boat and park in-front of Intel, take a bicyle to the factory :)

  45. Simonboy
    March 15th, 2012 at 11:08 | #45

    Hahaha …. good idea

  46. Elizabeth
    March 15th, 2012 at 12:06 | #46

    Hahah…..Really, good idea, take a boat from Balik Pulau to factory!! We need more people like Allan to cheer us up
    I too book a unit. For the kids actually. I dont mind travelling. I dont mind no shopping during week ends. I like the primary school and the quiet environment.

    In Penang island, Either the RM800K landed property in a very crowded area with flats/apartment circling the 2 rows of terrace houses, super expensive or super condo with 5 star finishings, or those elite projects whereby you notice the brochure/booth no mention of price one. Because they know if you ask the price which means you are not that group of elite people who can afford. I dont all these luxuries to raise my young family.

    I need a house, a park/play ground for my kids to play with their friends, and a nearby school. That’s all.

  47. Woon
    March 15th, 2012 at 12:25 | #47

    Not to say flats la, i stay in RM500K-RM600K apartment also not place for the kids.
    the common area/swimming pool like pasar malam during saturday/sunday.
    So, what to do?
    Every week ends, go Queensbay/Gurney/1st Avenue, you said may be RM2-RM5 for parking but sure need to spend money one, kids want to eat this that, etc
    Like very materialistic…..

    Where to see the project, any booth now that promote this project? tq

  48. Lee
    March 15th, 2012 at 12:38 | #48

    True, now either Balik Pulau or buy condo, condo also expensive RM500K, about that.
    Some more, have to q over night, or many nights before the actual selling date…
    How is that possible? no need to go to toilet?
    Hai, no money sad.
    Got money buy, also pathetic, q with foreigners hired by the rich.
    Can not have ballot or better system meh.

    This one, still got or not? sold out already?

  49. Ooi
    March 15th, 2012 at 12:42 | #49

    is like that one la.
    RM500K also queee, if sell you less than RM350K, may be people will fight/quarel on that night already……..crazy but people still have to q, want to buy house.
    I agree with you, should have better system like ballot. Can not get the number, never mind, luck la. Better than q overnight, safety issue, later can not get-not happy or worse later, got people jump q-quarell

    I also may consider balik pulau, jogging during weekends or find a hobby like reading if no shopping complex/movie

  50. James
    March 15th, 2012 at 12:51 | #50

    Given ~500k for 1000+sqft condo in town area vs landed in Balik Pulau, landed would be my choice as i dun mind travelling.

  51. Jk
    March 15th, 2012 at 13:00 | #51

  52. Mei
    March 15th, 2012 at 13:34 | #52

    I also book one already :)
    We stay in a medium cost apartment, raining problem, traffic very jam.
    Some more, not enough parking, my husband always worry to find parking, get more difficult to find parking.
    raining, adults never mind but with kids.
    this one some more, in front got a primary school, we straight away book. also the children play ground at the middle.

    at first thinking of buying another apartment with 2 car parks, take lift straight to parking area one. But, now, need to Q overnight or have to hire foreighners to q for you few days before launching. If you wait for the launching, then can not get. Wait for another project? no guarantee also. I dont think with our hard-earn money, we do not have to become slave to the developers. They can have ballot system one, you think they dont know a more systematic system. reputation ma. newspaper said this project, wah, q so many people.
    sad for working class people, work so hard but buy one house also so difficult. rich, never mind la. just spend RM few hundreds to hire foreigners or send maid la.

  53. Keong
    March 15th, 2012 at 14:05 | #53

    Many developers like that la especially got 1 particular developer in Penang, you know la, the one who develop a big project along a highway one, like very reputable, put chairs la, put tents la, like very caring, If caring to the people, then should have a ballot system. Imagine ask your own sister, wife, mother to wait overnight? May be, certain people said dont go la, no body force you what. True. Rich people dont go, send maids/hire foreigners only. This world is never fair, probably easy on the Rich.

    In Subang Jaya, during a launch of double storey terrace project.
    10am to 12pm, registration, paid RM30K bankers cheque
    At 12.15PM, ballot starts. 418 numbers, house on sale 211 only
    The first to take number, no necessary advantage, may be your number is 163.

    All 418 potential purchaser taken their ballot no.
    Now, developer called : Ballot No.1, you go infront choose your unit.
    A few days before that day, every info, location, direction, unit price, etc given, you jolt down your Choice No.1, No.2 & No.3

    If you are number 300 also, can still wait. Some people dont want to buy because their choice of unit bought by some one already. Wait until all unit sold. Number called until 300 something then, all sold.
    Not every one happy, but at least you dont have to q overnight. All these pathetic waiting and pushing around.

  54. YuHong
    March 15th, 2012 at 15:00 | #54

    That s why, join us in Balik Pulau.
    The more, the merrier. The more people come to stay in Balik Bulau, more development will come.

    The rich people ask their workers to q, you think they will stay there ar?
    Paid RM1K to foreign workers to q for them, nothing la.
    Later get OC, sold for hand some profits.
    It is people like you and me, who save every cents to get RM50K, at first happy la, can get to pay the 10% during SNP. Think can buy a dream condo from a reputable developer but dream on la. Think la, why allow foreign workers to q instead of MUST original buyer?
    Because rich people complain what, you ask Datin/Datuk to q overnight meh?

  55. Zeen
    March 15th, 2012 at 17:58 | #55

    Come on, come on…..
    Selling fast, buy before 1st phase sold out.
    We all will be very good neighbours to each other!
    I think the developer must give us, the earlier buyers a hamper during key collection when completed, see, we are promoting the project for the developer free of charge

    I book the Double Storey, the car porch like very big , 2 cars can fit in.
    Settled my problem, every time , look for apartment , look for 2 car parks. Bye bye apartment / condo lifestyle after I receive my key later.

    Parking problem , buy grocery and wait for the lift, especially Chinese new year time,
    Cartons of drinks , 2 box of oranges , enough already .
    I can afford this one. I book during CNY. Happiest CNY , so happy . Don’t bother people said kampung place.

    I last time stay in a new village, Perak. My childhood, I used to have 2/3 friends to roam around the village, cycling, catching spiders, look for wild papayas by the road side, etc. During school holiday, from morning to evening. We only come back either we are hungry or getting dark . Totally unsupervised. My wife was shocked, not dangerous ? Actually, it is risky but all children are raised like that .

    That s why I kept on convince my wife to book one. I secretly harbor hope my young kids will at least has some freedoms of running around Instead of playing I pad, watching TV, Playstation, go shopping complex every weekends. We book one also during CNY

  59. James
    March 15th, 2012 at 21:42 | #59

    Me too, booked one DST
    Btw, Gary, is the front gate wide enough to fit 2 cars at one time? Most of the terrace today hardly fit 2 concurrently…

  60. Terry
    March 15th, 2012 at 22:17 | #60

    I checked the brochure too, indeed the car porch can fit in 2 cars. Hopefully, not just artist illustration. We also booked a Double Storey, if really cannot, we park outside :) . Never mind la.

  61. Janet
    March 15th, 2012 at 23:27 | #61

    Normally, the 2 pillars in front of the house that will determine whether can park 2 cars side by side or not. Usually the design is small.
    Not much the problem of space or width of the house . That s why some people will relocate the pillars that support the balcony . Involve money

    You have to consider the time taken during morning hour going to work
    and after office hour, petrol usage. Additional number of cars travelling
    along the same route when all the projects are completed.

    March 16th, 2012 at 13:07 | #68

    You also have to consider the reasonable price offering, proximity to Bayan Lepas factory area.
    Similar or worse traffic congestion in other places like Air Itam , bridge crossing , etc.
    And also reason why there are many projects in Balik Pulau if it is not because of the good potential and demands for affordable/decent housing area

    While Reality and Opportunity can continue to debate, argue , deliberate the pro and cons of staying Balik Pulau, all the good location/direction units of Double Storer has been sold. Others either facing the T junction or Main access road to the Semi D. And Semi D all sold out.

    Phase 2 when to start, unknown but definitely more expensive. Today, I always envy those who buy Double Storey in Island Glades many years a go. I am not going to regret again about Balik Pulau , 10 years from now.

    If lousy, so be it. No more regret, furthermore , it is Freehold and landed.

    Sold so fast. I am thankful I book the Double Storey already :) My father showed me about the prominent big advertisement of a property project at Kwong Wah newspaper today, I am surprised that is Prestige 3!

    I told my father I book one . He is very happy. He said very beautiful and keep on asking me I can afford or not. The house price in Penang has spiral out of control that old penangite like my father dare not think about staying in landed. Bigger pigeon hole condo also RM500K.

    Mee too, not to miss rare chance of owning landed property in Penang Island. Every where morning rush also jam la.

Some people even guarantee the whole Penang Island will sank to the bottom of the sea with all this pilling going on for so many high rise in 10 years!

    Actually, i ask the sales agent about the extra charge if we want to add extra power points, change to 3 phase, or even bigger tiles..
    I understand that they are really busy now with SNP, bankers, etc
    may be later date, a guidelines will be issued to all purchasers.
    If possible, all require power points fixed first instead of hacking the wall or can the see the wire holders around the hall.

    Actually, i dont understand why a person who pretending from Georgetown and not interested in Balik Pulau seems like stay all day commenting and counter commenting the post here. Just dont understand.
    Why ar?
    Every one is entitle to his opinions, in fact free of speech is guaranteed under our country constitution. But, why waste time following the posting if really not interested? Weird

    Definitely better than your Balik Pulau.

    Ooops, forgot to tell you RM2.4million for a middle Double Storey
    Unless, after 10 years when every one moves to Balik Pulau, may be can sell you cheaper la

    Actually there is 2 group of ppl here. 1) Investor will said is not worth as there is lesser rental return and the capital appreciation will be slow or at least need to wait more development. Don’t think ppl will rent there and travel to work at Bayan Lepas as they target is the prime area. 2) Buy for own stay, this is very attractive for those would like to own 1 unit landed. Got 2 (more some park roadside) car park, door step to enter home….etc. Last, is good for own stay, and also investor have holding power for at least 10 years. 500k for a 1300sqft condo and 2 story landed…very clear :)

    This one very nice. really like landed la, not crowded like other places with flats/ apartments/shops/ and worse still, along the access road, you can see never ending new condos coming. The big advertisement board.

    We bought the Semi D during CNY. You guys still want to consider ar?
    When I bought that time , it is even more unknown and the site is nothing but a standard construction board. This forum not even talk about prestige 3. Nothing. Just mention in newspaper about preview.

    Buying property, other than being cautious and think carefully, we have to act fast also , of course after exhausting all the necessary checking on the company background , site visit, location and direction , I even checked the Feng Shui of my unit .

    No property is perfect. If location also want to be good, price also want cheap, facilities also a lot, Jusco also want opposite the road , etc. It won’t wait for us to buy. The staff and developer vendors , contractors , suppliers, their 2 ma ku Cheh , relative and friends will sapu habis. Buy from Mudah.com la from them

    March 22nd, 2012 at 23:58 | #94

    Hello, I also booked a DST unit there already. Glad to find this forum where people are commenting. And to see a few future neighbors here :) Yes, I do agree that this is an opportunity to own a landed house in Penang. But i think it is normal for us to worry if the purchase will show its worth or not.

    @James : That is a good news, means the property price starting to rise :) Btw, I think better to take flexi. Well, after doing some survey, I found out that there is something called MLTA. Something different than MRTA. Slightly more expensive than MRTA, but if you can afford, then it is a good plan. Don’t worry, I am not a banker/agent 😛

    I am working in FIZ too and hopefully they will improve the infrastructure (especially wider roads) to and fro the places.

    @Mike & Yibby : I already applied loan. You may try Maybank. I heard that they are offering 1st year BLR-2.5, 2nd and 3rd -2.45 then 4th onwards is -2.4.

    I am considering full flexi between public and hong leong, both are giving blr-2.5%(1st yr), blr-2.45%(2nd and 3rd yr) and blr-2.4%(subsequent)
    Public bank allow loan up to 40yrs if you have <=30yrs old

    March 25th, 2012 at 07:54 | #101

    Hi Mike,

    Since we still not sign snp, if we take the loan too earlier, then will the loan offer expire before you sign snp?

    i asked the banker, they say got some period need to sign the offer whether to sign or not.

    how long they give you ?

  102. Mike
    March 25th, 2012 at 10:24 | #102

    Somehow i have not ask them about when shud we sign the loan offer. My thought is as long as u find tat the loan is good enough after surveyed the market, is ok to sign, i think… And i dun think loan package would get any better in next few months time until we sign snp… Wat u guys think?

    We hv to start service the loan interest as soon as the construction get started on our terrace row, so it is irregards to when u sign the loan one.

    i am so lucky that when i went to QB, the DST corner was open for sale due to one guy can not affort to fork up 30% (due to he have too many houses – good for filter out speculator !!)
    hv paid 5%, very happy and finally can own a landed home in Island !!
    have talked to the sales team when will Ph2 launch, answer was around May and price will be add up somewhere btw 50K (+/-)
    Dun miss out opportunity for those who wish to own landed prop.
    Dun wait n c , better buy now then later BP developed, and cun afford again.

    Yeah, i bought Prestige III also in Queensbay this month!
    Imagine, we were thinking to go jalan-jalan but end up buying a Semi D Type A
    When We were talking about Phase 2, then was informed that a Corner Double Storey and Semi D Type A are both open due to the earlier purchasers could not qualify for loan! We prefer the Semi D due to the good location and good price.

    We actually paid the deposit straight away, only then, when to see the site in Balik Pulau.
    We are prepared to lose the deposit if we do not like the location.
    :), no regret!
    The sales girl said, i am very lucky as many people want to buy SemiD, in fact, i understand that all Semi D actually sold out during Chinese New Year preview in Queensbay and Gurney.

    Do anyone know whether the phase 1 units has been sold out or not?

    Btw, I am curious what will happen to the kampung houses along the road on the way to Prestige 3. Anyone know what is their plan? The road is just a single lane road.

    Apart from that, do anyone know whether our site there is prone to flood or not?

    Hi Charows..

    np.. early last week i book that time, DDT still have around 18 units like that while i think SST still have 35 units. semiD sold out.
    what i see is most people take up semi-D and DDT. people not very affordable or small family will take SST. you can go to their office to ask if u r interested.

    i got asked them regarding the kampung house as i go to the side to see it. they mention the land infront they already bought it and the house owner will move out soon.

    So far i didn’t heard any flood in that area la..

    Went to see the half built show house yesterday. I’m amazed with the Semi-D 22’x100′ type. Spacious internally and with big compound (can park 4 cars). Side compound about 10′ which is just good enough. Terrace house is 20′ width and the living seemed quite small. The 1st floor restroom between 2nd and 3rd room is very small. Too bad it’s too late to grab the DSSD.

    May be they will call you soon. PLB already submit to the lawyer the buyers list and they will call one by one. I asked them today as this is what i get from them.. so.. stay tune..

    when did you pay the 5% deposit? The moment I booked, I called the 6 bankers at one day and applied. Thought can get better rate. who knows seemed like “pakat”. one of their panel bank you can check status online one, I saw is approved, but they told me appealing rate for me. I a bit confused for your case. Cos normally people signed offer letter first then will proceed to S&P. Rules change?

  142. Mike
    April 2nd, 2012 at 21:40 | #142

    Yup, 2.5% the 1st yr, 2.45% on the 2nd/ 3rd and 2.4% on subsequent…
    Actually i got a call from another bank that offerring 2.45% throughout the whole tenant… Still considering if i shud pursue for tat, but high level wise, i dun see big different from the panels bank…

    Hi, PIII,
    I did have the same thought as you, with the price different of ~130k, can get Semi-D

    But when i look back carefully to the brochures, there are 2 types of Semi-D, the one ready as show unit, is typeB, the one with bigger land(32×99), car porch that can fit 4 cars…
    There is also a typeA, with land size of 32×80, i think typeA is the one cost at 600k as Semi-D was priced at 600k onwards…
    The Semi-D who saw could actually cost more…

    @Mike did the banker ask whether you are buying for your own stay or investment? When I ask whether can get for a better rate, they said if own stay can appeal.i very “greedy”, I thought can get 2.5% for the whole tenure now seemed like the best is 2.45% hahha… Depends I would say,in long run,2.45% will have some impact.

  145. Mike
    April 2nd, 2012 at 22:00 | #145

    They did ask, and i told them for own stay
    I calculated on the different between the 3-tiers vs 2.45% for whole tenure, not much different…
    So, i may stick to the loan approved bank…

    hi potato,

    i booked 2 weeks ago and apply loan after 1 week as i busy at work. I havent sign snp yet ask i told them my loan still work in progress. i will sign loan offer letter first then only will sign snp.

    rules still be the same..

    i think now average rate is -2.4 BLR unless u borrow a lot then BLR can nego a bit.. so far what i know -2.4 is kind of standard rate…

    bank just like factory.. u see this factory increment how much, then other will use as a benchmark.. same theory apply to this BLR also.. i think.. hahaha..

    April 2nd, 2012 at 22:07 | #147

    i think you guys will get call from lawyer by this week.

    The lawyer is based on the name list provide by PLB to call each of us.. i suspect the list is not in order for who brought first… not FIFO.. like randomly.. so you guys should get call very soon.. may be tomorrow.. who know…

    I hope can know my loan status this week so can plan to sign snp next week…

  148. EK

    April 5th, 2012 at 22:39 | #160

    For the bank loan, better look for those bank that no lock in period, meaning that we can paid extra $$ or dump in some amount anytime if we have to reduce the interest rate.

  161. Mike
    April 5th, 2012 at 23:31 | #161

    Hi, Thomas,
    Have you comeby any bank offering loan package that has period lockout? What i understand from multiple bank enquiries is, the lockout period of 3yrs do not allow for full loan settlement only…

  162. Thomas
    April 5th, 2012 at 23:46 | #162

    @Mike
    I had got approved loan from Hong Leong Islamic, so far have no lock in period.

  163. potato
    April 6th, 2012 at 08:31 | #163

    @Thomas Islamic package is having this features, however, personally i think this locking period will not be a big impact if you opt for flexi loan. If you loan 100k eg, you put 100k in current account, eventhough your loan account still stay active, no interest will be chargeable. unless you wanted to sell your property off. so in short, will impact for short term, meaning who people who wanted to buy for investment purpose. Well, I came to know that BNM is going to annouce the waiving of locking period soon lo.

    April 6th, 2012 at 09:08 | #164

    for a makan gaji ppl, conventional housing loan better or flexi housing loan is better (current account)?

  165. potato
    April 6th, 2012 at 09:25 | #165

    @jan
    IF you asked my opinion, I would say flexi loan. I have conventional and flexi loan before. Comparatively, flexi loan will be a better options for interest savings as well as emergency cases lo. eg, if you loan 100k, you have cash 100k, you put inside the current account, you will not get interest chargeable, when you need cash for emergency cases, you can withdraw it without giving notice to bank. (conventional will require you to give notice and processing fees may be imposed)

  166. potato
    April 6th, 2012 at 10:03 | #166

    Drawback of flexiloan perhaps is the maintenance fees for current account. However, some banks offering no processing fees as well as maintenance fees. Have to read through the offer letter for this.Seemed too good to be true. But perhaps they are trying to give better offer to attract more customers.

  167. EK
    April 6th, 2012 at 10:14 | #167

    i persoanlly prefer full flex bcos i am makan gaji also…..lol

  168. James
    April 6th, 2012 at 12:34 | #168

    The main consequences of conventional and flexi loan currently is the 3 years locking period. If calculate carefully, what you paid for the first 3 years to the bank is just the interest only without reducing your principal loan amount.

  172. potato
    April 6th, 2012 at 14:23 | #172

    @James Not really lo. I compared before. 3 years locking period will impact more on conventional loan. For the interest calculation, if you put money in current account, the net impact is the same. only the loan account will show that you are serving more interest and principal look like not reducing, however, current account will have the debit back lo. Thats why now most people prefer take flexi loan. Well, perhaps different people have different view lo.

    @EK u asked the lawyer come island. thats what i requested when they asked me also. the developer said now lawyer “mobile”. so ok lo. I wanna see how “mobile”. i think we are having the same lawyer. weird also, paid the 5% to lawyer A, lawyer B handle. I called lawyer A then only I found out. I also surprised when i get to know.

    Based on ba gua, South is good for money bad for health. North is vice versa. Good for health, bad for money.
    Basically South is suitable for people whose earnings is commission based or young people. N is suitable for employment or senior citizens.

  183. potato
    April 7th, 2012 at 19:16 | #183

    @sc Actually offer letter is ready. Just that I still waiting for “better offer” but I know is not realisable. I think next week will just sign three in one. Is ok if lawyer havent sent you letter. cos different lawyer use different ways to contact their clients. This one I already get confirmation from them. either phone calls of letter. Lawyer A will be receiving the 5% from us. However the same lawyer will be doing the s&p and loan agreement. Very unlikely two lawyers handling the same unit unless exceptional case. more trouble for the developer.

  184. potato
    April 7th, 2012 at 19:20 | #184

    @EK call them to check the name. else you go direct there sure wait till siao. I think may be the mistakenly put the previous buyer name(loan rejected). they handled too many cases. hope s&p is correct. just call to confirm and request them to come penang lo. since they said “mobile” saturday somemore not open. so ma fan.

  185. EK

    I was told to sign SnP by end of April, btw, the 2nd phase launch date has not been finalized yet… Mayb in much later timeframe…
    I am thinking of writing in to the developer to propose on concrete imprint on the back door area, anyone? Am gathering more voices and opinions from the buyers…
    Had a chat with the local, there should not be a concern of flooding on the site, the most is the river outflow to the road during tsunami time(worst case).

    Tan & others,
    Be careful! There are some people booked for units with 20K early bird discount (example DST RM468K), but true story or not don’t know lah… say cannot get bank loanlah, 1st say release with “original price”, then when got people ask, want to release the lot for RM488K to earn 20K! Just checked with PLB, if you book now still got 20K early bird discount……
    For these people, better “gia cheng ki phak chio gin tang”

    Better wait for phase 2 lah, buy direct from developer, no hanky panky……
