    Hi, EK,
    I have yet to schedule to sign spa yet, r u saying ur spa reflect the price after rebate? Btw, anyone manage to arrange to sign spa on off office hour?

    hi Mike, yes, the price in SPA shown after the rebate as i asked the lawyer firm through phone, the lawyer told me when loan approve then let them know and will sign the 2 doc in one shot.

    I was there last Sunday ,
    they started installing a/c for the semi-d unit : )

  16. FG
    April 19th, 2012 at 23:36 | #16

    hmm…..should i wait for the show unit to ready on 28th April and take a look at it first before sign SPA? Have receive letter from lawyer to go and sign…normally they allow us to delay for how long?

  17. apple
    April 20th, 2012 at 08:00 | #17


    I just get my loan approve and also get the letter from lawyer ask to go sign snp.
    i also want to know they will allow us to delay for how long ? the letter also not mention the due date we need to sign it.

  18. Mike
    April 20th, 2012 at 10:35 | #18

    It seems to be no definite dead line for spa signature, any reason to delay the signature?

  19. apple
    April 20th, 2012 at 12:06 | #19

    for me, delayed the snp just loan approval. The loan approve process take longer time than before.

    for me, it take 1 week+ for approval and 2-3 days for prepare offer letter. Then we need to read the letter and consider which bank to take.

    I plan to take maybank and anyone of you taking it ? is it good?

  20. EK
    April 20th, 2012 at 12:59 | #20

    If info given is not wrong , mid of May they will need to request some money from bank , MBB kick me out , i am taking PBB.

    FG @ , u can go anytime , no need to wait on 28th to get the feel otherwise it may have a lot people that time

    i still not so satisfy with the price written on SPA as told by the lawyer firm clerk, need to clarify is it true or not later when meet up with Lawyer.

  21. FG
    April 20th, 2012 at 15:58 | #21

    PBB and HLB giving similar rate 1st yr…-2.5%, 2nd-3rd yr…-2.45%, 4th yr onwards…-2.4%. OCBC and AMBG can only know the status and rate next week….so anyhow will decide and sign everything next week i suppose….easier

    I visited the site today, only manage to view SST show unit as DST is lock for touch up. Looks good in overall… Wondering how much it cost for such ID works…

    @FG Ambank is the end financing also?

  24. James
    April 20th, 2012 at 21:07 | #24

    HLB shd be the best deal. Coz no lock in period. All other bank have lock in.

  25. potato
    April 21st, 2012 at 10:41 | #25

    @EK why mbb kicked you out? are you taking PBB flexi? whats wrong with the price written on SPA?

  26. EK
    April 21st, 2012 at 13:26 | #26

    -bcos Maybank haolen, only can gv me 80%, so i take other loh

    -i will take PBB ful-flex, locking is 3 years from first drawdown, during the loan interest service year, all extra is not direct deduct from principle

    -did u sign SPA already ? what i personally concern is the price written in SPA is not before the rebate, bcos future valuer will value the house + spa selling price , let say selling 100K , rebate 20K , final we enjoy is 80K, but spa written 80K , on paper we are like no getting any benefit from the rebate , sound like this is just marketing pricing strategy…i do not know other people have any concern of this ?

  27. potato
    April 21st, 2012 at 13:53 | #27

    Have you seen the offer letter from PBB? Now there is a rule whereby if you have late payment, they will convert from BLR-xx% to BLR+XX%. For PBB, if not mistaken is one month. Drawback of this full-flexi is need to pay 200 for accout opening, every month pay 10 dollar. I didnt go for full flexi. but as the name goes, is v convenient.

    My S&P price is after discount also.Perhaps they want to save on the stamp duty and title transfer. Since they are bearing it. Unlike hire purchase when you purchase a car, they will put the price before discount. I wonder for this case can I be the same. Have to consult expert first.

  28. EK
    April 21st, 2012 at 16:38 | #28

    I choose fulflex cause i use check extensively

    Yaya, pls consult expert then share with us here, thx

  31. jane
    April 23rd, 2012 at 19:55 | #31

    anyone know still how many units are left today ? Last time they say phase I n II will launch together. What do you think about holding back launch the phase II?

  32. pk
    April 23rd, 2012 at 21:21 | #32

    3 weeks ago i go to their office to pay the deposit. I see the Semi-D sold out. DDT just left few unit which most of them face road junction. SST one left some. i think left one should be SST as phase 2 also will have SST as well. :)

    Hello everyone,
    It’s great to be part of this forum of Prestige II homeowners-to-be. Wondering if it’s good to have photos of the place to keep each other updated of the construction progress.
    To start us off, I’ve created a Facebook group and included some pictures of the show units as they were under construction in early April. Hopefully, more people can join the group and share their pictures too.

    The URL for the group is http://www.facebook.com/groups/178099115644982/

  34. potato
    April 25th, 2012 at 09:39 | #34

    @EK I asked, if we wanted to have a higher loan margin, then we have to use the price before rebate, then the developer issue the CN to contra back and you will bear more on the stamp duty for transfer title due to the 20k extra, HOWEVER, i think v unlikely for this case since they are paying the transfer charges leh…what do you think?

  35. EK
    April 25th, 2012 at 10:06 | #35

    @ Potato,
    eh, sorry to ask again, do u have formulae to calculate the extra that we need to pay for the Transfer (after add in 20K) , if (let say nia) only 2~3K extra and can gain 20K value higher of our property , i think it is a good deal right ? or i am wrong , my mathematic just passed only, not very good in this subject ^.^iii

  36. potato
    April 25th, 2012 at 10:38 | #36

    @EK From what I know is, 500k= 3%, lets put it maximum the 20k fall under the 3% is 600. I was told by someone we can try to approach them to put the before rebate price it is part of their marketing package so they should have honour their offer regardless who bears the stamp duty on transfers. Did you contact the PLB directly?

  37. EK
    April 25th, 2012 at 10:48 | #37

    @ Potato , honestly, i no approach PLB for this cause i do not know all those rules either is our right or not. Since i hv not sign SPA yet , is mean i still can ask for it to write the before rebate price ?

  38. potato
    April 25th, 2012 at 11:02 | #38

    @EK Well, as a consumer, you have the right to request. See how they respond to you then. I not really concern on this issue actually. So I didn’t ask over this matter. As far as I know, let say you bought this and subsale later, the banker will evaluate it accordingly also. Is not that we mark up 100k and the loan margin can be approved by your buyer. Thats what I know. Bank will do some evaluation. Would appreciate if you can share it out after contacting the developer.

    April 28th, 2012 at 08:10 | #44

    so, did you manage to get the S&P reflected with price before 20k rebate? Signing two documents in one?

  45. potato
    April 28th, 2012 at 08:12 | #45

    @Wong Yes, is bear by developer. We were talking about “If” ….cos EK intended to put his S&P price before rebate.

  46. EK
    April 28th, 2012 at 08:35 | #46

    Lawyer said PLB has his own rule on this (normally reputable company is more straight forward as told)

    Currently, we have some photos of the show units in early April to share.

    It’d be great if you could join the group too and share your photos in the group when you visit the show units. TQ! :-)

  53. Tan
    April 29th, 2012 at 09:39 | #53

    Just back from launching.
    Many people there n plb prepare some refreshment for visitor n buyer.
    The remaining phase will not have sst. Sst only in phase 1.
    Phase 2 all is dst. All the sst in remaining phase will convert to dst or semi d when I ask plb staff.
    The show house design quiet nice. Very high siling and can feel very good air circulation.
    Overall landscape look good and the launching event quiet grand.

  56. Ah Qua

    April 29th, 2012 at 15:03 | #56

    Does the DST and Semi-D still stand at RM460k and RM600k respectively for Phase 2?

  57. Mike
    April 29th, 2012 at 15:13 | #57

    Semi-D was only limited to phase 1 and all sold out, only SST(phase1) and DST(phase1 and more) are available…
    No price change to SST coz there are still SST units left… DST could see increase in price if the phase2a get good response… Fyi, phase2 units were separated in few phases, i would call it phase2a is open now, follow by 2b and 2c(converted from phase2 SST)

  58. Sy
    April 29th, 2012 at 15:25 | #58

    @Ah Qua
    Latest update, the DST is RM498, SSD remains the same price RM368. It’s quite a good news for phase I DST buyers. I just back from the site. So many people go to view the show room. The ID design not very impressive (to me) but the air flow of the houses is very well.

    May 1st, 2012 at 22:34 | #59

    Hi All,

    just went there this afternoon for show house viewing after receive their postcard. For me i think the location are quite far (~4-5KM from balik pulau town). It is suitable for those who works at balik pulau. People like me who work at bayan lepas area, I think you need to travel at least ~60km per day and also if you don’t mind to pump more petrol and waste some energy to drive.

    Besides, if you compare this projects with other projects like Relau mutiara, Orchadia, nyaman indah, taman titi height. I think the layout is quite small and the location is not so good although the price is cheaper.

    Just my 2 cent!!

  60. Mike
    May 1st, 2012 at 23:17 | #60

    Agree with your statement that the travel distance has to be something to give for landed property at that price
    It really depends on what you want, i think most of the owners are young professional who wanted affordable landed property in the island

  61. potato
    May 2nd, 2012 at 08:13 | #61

    One thing I dun really like is the “cornering”.The sharing bathroom for the 2nd and 3rd rooms make a lot of cornering. I like the bathroom which is outside in semi D, make the room square2.

  62. Sy
    May 2nd, 2012 at 08:33 | #62

    I’m totally agreed with Mike. For those dun mind travelling more fews km, they will consider this location. Furthermore, it’s only one affordable landed property they can own in the island. If you ask about whether landed property or apartment is better, it’s another discuss topic and really optional.

  63. EL
    May 2nd, 2012 at 11:55 | #63

    Besides, the quality of material is not bad, compared with other property especially in mainland.

  64. kenny80
    May 2nd, 2012 at 21:54 | #64

    for the landed property at balik pulau that is the cheaper and the design is quite nice and the important thing is this project is buit a taman can change surounding enviroment

    @Loh , yes

  67. kk
    May 3rd, 2012 at 09:46 | #67

    The material they used is not bad. what encourgage me to buy is the green env there.
    In town, many DDT build just build on small landed and serounded with flat/condo. may be noisy as well as near the main road or so. The air also fresh there..

    most important is the house is affordable for many youngster who want to own a landed house in island like me.. hahaha…in future, may be will have tesco there.. who know.. as the only area that do not have shopping complex is BP now..

    you can see boon siew group and many developer also start to build house at BP.. lol..

  68. Aby
    May 3rd, 2012 at 09:56 | #68

    ya….since so many new housing project coming up in BP, can we write to Tesco or Jusco or Giant or even Sunshine and urge them to open a supermarket there…then it will be perfect :)

  69. Michael

    What you guys talking about? Sound no good. What’s hidden things they are trying to hide? Only for DST phaseII??

  86. jose
    May 4th, 2012 at 17:03 | #86

    Conclusion: all DST increase 30k in phase II regardless of corner or intermediate. Last week I asked, still free SNP/legal fee. This helps you save another 20-30k. Anyone interest should grab 1 before they withdraw free SNP/legal fee. Just my 2 cents input and i’m 1 of the owner there.

  87. potato
    May 4th, 2012 at 17:18 | #87

    @jose ya. FULL SUPPORT. Phase II DST all increase 30k.Ignore my “hidden”statement. marketing strategy i would say.

    Personally, i don’t like the location after see the show house. It is not convenience at all as we have to travel 30-45 minutes each place to work, school, shopping, & so on. For those who wanna buy landed property for own stay, please consider mainland as there are still many choice out there, some more G&G concept, near to school, shopping complex and so on. I do not understand why most of the island people wanna lock themselve in this compact Island.
    It take years to fully develop Balik Pulau unlike other places in PG such as Bayan Lepas, Batu Maung, Sg. Ara, Teluk Kumbar which will be developed very soon after the 2nd link. Just compare yourself, is there many changes at Balik Pulau over the last 20 years?

  106. PG
    May 22nd, 2012 at 10:51 | #106

    Yes, agreed. There is no many changes at Balik Pulau over the last 20 years. BUT there is for sure MANY changes will coming up either after or concurrently together with this project for upcoming years.

    Anyway for whatever reason, Island House will be stand at higher value at any time compared to Mainland House.
    I “may be” will starting to consider Mainland House if Pakatan Rakyat took over Federal Govt hopefully this coming GE. Coz bridge toll charges will be waived, else we will still continue paying toll & letting BN continue to “mum mum” more $$.

  108. Gary
    May 22nd, 2012 at 12:07 | #108

    Try to put it in this way. The balance of $ compare Island and Mainland for same type of house, will the balance enuf for you to travel from mainland to Isalnd at least another 10 years? If yes, why not consider mainland G&G concept?

    Different people have different preference lo… no need to argue which one better la.. just buy where u like and where u afford with..

    May 22nd, 2012 at 12:54 | #110

    Very funny, no point to arguing here if you are not interested to buy this project.. I believed everyone who already bought the house here are happy and no regret!! yes, agreed with Apple, is up to u!

    May 22nd, 2012 at 12:57 | #111

    I don’t see anyone argue here la. I just try to share my 2 cents only la. i’m agreed everywhere also got people buy one la. Just need to make sure you choose the correct one la.

    May 22nd, 2012 at 14:00 | #114

    XY, you like or don’t like is doesn’t matter. the important thing is Balik Pulau houses price have appreciate and got high return. For my case, I bought DST 4 years ago, only cost RM295K. Now can you tell me how much the new DST in Balik Pulau?

  115. XY
    May 22nd, 2012 at 14:43 | #115

    @are you rich, yup! property price is appreciate everywhere including Balik Pulau but not as high as other areas in Island. Just to update you that same thing happened in BM area, 2 years ago, DST only cost below 200K, the new one now selling above 400K. It is not whether i like or don’t like matter, the value of the house is depends on the location and the convenience to nearby amenities such as hypermarket, school, market and so on….hopefully something big like Tesco, Giant, or Jusco enter BP and you will become millionair by the time you sell your house….it is all matter of time lah :)

  116. Kia Su
    May 22nd, 2012 at 15:11 | #116

    @are you rich ?
    I went to Prestige III show house last weekend, so i know how much DST currently selling. When talking about appreciate and high return, few projects in Mainland doing better than Balik Pulau. From own stay point of view, i feel a bit far and somemore need to pass thru the Malay Kampung which i personally don’t like it.

  117. Sy
    May 22nd, 2012 at 22:18 | #117

    I don’t see eye to eye with XY and Kia su. Personally, I like BP more than mainland property. BP is literally meaning back of the island, is a self-safficient township. It’s famous for it’s durian plantations. It will be a booming town In the future 5-10 yrs. The value of houses there is promising and appreciate. Just my two cents.

    The connectivity of 2nd bridge next year will tell the difference.

    Thanks XY, Gary for sharing your view, i think ppl who interested in BP has their own reason. Anyhow, your comment on better appreciation in mainland could be valid from certain aspect.

  120. Kia Su
    May 22nd, 2012 at 23:04 | #120

    Agreed with you. But it will only tell Batu Mau and Teluk Kumbar before Balik Pulau.

    Hey, guys. Can you predict the future? Just let time tell you the truth and the difference. Ok! Kia su, so what, for those who choose BP must have their own reason. Even BP is after batu mau and teluk kumbar.I thought, it’s still better than mainland due to Penang island no more land leave. Bp is the only paradise for the developers.

  122. Kia Su
    May 23rd, 2012 at 15:14 | #122

    I’m pretty sure you stay in Balik Pulau. Most probably you just bought PRESTIGE 3. hahaha……
    How sure you are Balik Pulau is better than Mainland? Don’t tell me just because of no more land leave in Island? Pls la….don’t forget about Reclamation.

    May 23rd, 2012 at 15:26 | #123

    No need to argue,let those believe that B.Pulau is better to invest in
    Balik Pulau. We will see in 2 years from now the growing numbers of
    new properties is in B.Pulau or B’worth ?

  124. XY
    May 23rd, 2012 at 15:56 | #124

    Kia Su, those who buy & stay BP must have their own reason such as retirement plan and they do not care how long and how fast is the return of the house value. Your comments is only valuable to those potential buyer who wanna earn fast return in short term period of 2-3 yrs and not 10-20 years time. Just don’t border other people pocket here…wasting your time only….i am not young generation, but i believe young generation will rather like to feel the excitement of city rather feel the distance and the so called “close to nature”…. just personal opinion, no offence here.

    May 23rd, 2012 at 16:08 | #125

    not sure you all guy agree or not:-

    1. Balik Pulau housing price appriciate faster than BM.
    2. BM have higher criminal cases than Balik Pulau. Always publised on news paper…shooting, drug case…..
    3. Community in Balik Pulau is more friendly, that’s why low criminal case.

    I bought semi-D link in Permatang Sanctuary (mainland side) at RM454K by IJM developer. Guarded concept. Free legal and SPA worth another 20K. Tesco & Carefour already there. Jusco is coming. No need to speculate. Price is cheap. Dump the difference and upgrade to your dream car. Enjoy the daily seaview on the way to Penang Island, play your favourite songs on CD and laugh along with your morning radio DJ. Weekend…..hike up the hills for a round of good exercise and enjoy the fresh air up in Bukit Mertajam. No need to fight with the rest.

    May 23rd, 2012 at 21:29 | #131

    What’s the point for those who dun like BP comment here? It’s sounds like they are trying very hard to convict ppl dun buy BP house but mainland instead. Wishing economy downturn wont come up so fast, so that everybody get a very high return from their investment no matter in island or mainland. This is the win win situation.

  132. Sy
    May 23rd, 2012 at 21:49 | #132

    Kia su, you are really Kia su. Mainland’s house will not shooting high because of you shouting here. I think you have too much time in your hand or you comment on wrong project. Otherwise, as xy said you are wasted your brilliant time at here.

    @Kia sei
    I am nobody. I don’t think I have the capabilities to convince ppl don’t buy BP house. But I just want to highlight here. If you are looking for landed properties, pls don’t focus ONLY on BP. You can get a better high return and good quality of life so called close to nature in mainland landed properties also.

    I personally think currently island is still more potential for the next 5 years. If you looking for investment for 10 or 20 years, i think mainland would be the better choice considering the connectivity through 2nd link that will ease the traffic and new township of Bandar Cassia by LGE. Imagine penang airport is the center/main hub for consideration for Foreign Direct Investment. More factories will be built at mainland in future due to lower land cost and better connectivity to the airport compare to current situation. But if you looking for short term investment, island is still the better choice now. For own stay, any will do up to your budget and convenience!

  142. Gary
    May 24th, 2012 at 09:00 | #142

    100% agreed with you. Island is still more potential compare to mainland. But for Balik Pulau, I think not on the par yet

    May 24th, 2012 at 13:54 | #143

    For those who have strong holding power and own stay, there is no prob to buy bp house. For those who looking for short term investment, island condo or apartment is the best choice. If you looking for investment for 10 to 20 yrs, I think mainland or Balik pulau also doesn’t matter.

  144. Roger
    May 24th, 2012 at 14:50 | #144

    Agreed. Good. Not like upstair got one so call “Kia Su” always giving nonsense disturbing comment. I believed he/she is too Kia Su in beginning and bought the mainland house too early, now got better property coming at BP and starting to regret, that where all his/her “comment” came from.

    see today news from Star paper

    GEORGE TOWN: After recently acquiring 21.3 acres in Tanjung Bungah for RM185.6mil, SP Setia Bhd is now looking at an adjacent 14-acre site.

    SP Setia Property (North) divisional general manager Datuk S. Rajoo said the group was now in an advanced stage of negotiation to buy the property.

    “We expect to ink the deal soon. The two properties are an integral part of the group’s business plan to launch about RM2.5bil worth of properties on the island this year and in 2013,” Rajoo said.

    “Land on the island is becoming scarce. Since SP Setia wants to continue playing a dominant role in the property market on the island, it is seizing every opportunity to expand its landbank, capitalising on attractive deals,” he said.

    SP Setia’s business plans for Penang include the launch of residential and commercial properties worth over RM638mil in the second half of 2012.

    In 2013, besides the RM1.1bil project in Tanjung Bungah, SP Setia will also launch a RM175mil condominium project in Sungai Nibong, and the Wave and Breeze condominium projects for Setia Pearl Island, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM350mil and RM300mil respectively.

    “In the second half 2012, the key projects include the RM250mil Setia Triangle, the RM335mil Setia Greens 2, and a RM53mil condominium project in Teluk Kumbar,” he said.

    The Setia Triangle project on 6.8 acres in Setia Pearl Island comprises two-, three-, and four-storey shop offices with built-up areas of 3,000 sq ft, 4,500 sq ft, and 6,000 sq ft respectively. Each unit will be priced between RM1.95mil and RM3.6mil.

    “There will also be a residential component comprising a 225-unit condominium, priced between RM575,000 and RM1.2mil,” Rajoo said.

    The Wave consists of 535 condominium units priced from RM300,000 to RM750,000, while the Breeze comprises 450 units with a price tag of RM500,000 onwards.

    “The scheme in the Teluk Kumbar development comprises 98 condominium units with built-up areas of 1,000 sq ft and 1,4000 sq ft, priced between RM500,000 and RM700,000.

    “To date, we have launched over RM1.1bil worth of residential properties in Setia Pearl Island. Once the Setia Triangle, Wave, and Breeze are launched, the GDV for Setia Pearl Island will rise to RM2bil,” he said.

    Rajoo said SP Setia had also recently acquired two pieces of land in Balik Pulau for RM38mil, where the group planned to develop both landed and high-rise properties.

    He added that the group’s projects in Penang should generate about 15% of the its revenue for the fiscal year ending Oct 31.

    Something to share……and listen to the experts:

    The median house price to median household income ratio (a common indicator of housing affordability) for Penang Island has risen to 8.1, high by any standards, from 6.8 five years ago.

    The current average housing price on the island is RM429440 while the median household income on the island is RM52844. House prices on the island have risen by 50 per cent over the last five years. (Even on the mainland, prices have risen by 25-30 per in the same period.)

    For Penang state as a whole, the ratio is 5 (RM265010/RM52844) – up from 4 in 2006. House prices in the state have soared by 90 per cent over the last seven years.

    In comparison, the house price-to-income ratio for the USA was 3 until 2000, and then it rose to 5.8 by 2006, before the housing boom ended in an almighty bust. In the UK the ratio reached 11 in 2008, just before the credit crunch set in.

    All the more reason for us to tread cautiously. The above figures are from an October 2011 research paper on ‘Supply and Demand in the Penang housing market: Assessing Affordability‘ published by Penang Institute

    Hello Kia Kia,

    thanks fo sharing the useful information. for those who have no holding power may have consider Kia Kia advices.

    according to the past record, Penang island property has high demand than other area, such as mainland. so i’m pretty confident to island property, we can see even the price has double after 1998 finance crisis. don’t be too worry for those have plan for island property investment. you will see the result after 5 years..

    Looks like Limpeh+Kia Sei+Bo kia+Kia See+Mai Kia=same person=Sales Person? Interesting but wrong marketing strategy! Buyers come in this forum to test the market and you do not need to hard sell your house up to that extend if the project has the advantages than others. Every projects has their pros & cons, people buy balik pulau bcoz they see the pros and those reject one bcoz they see the cons. So, just let the buyers do their own justification.

    Who going to bear the maintenance fees for the park, if the owner will bear the cost then better we should request the gated there otherwise others Kampung people also will occupied the park (according to them there is 7 kampung at balik pulau) Any ideal?

  157. Jack
    May 27th, 2012 at 14:43 | #157

    Not very sure, I think should be maintain by MPPP. People can come as long as they do NO harm to the community. Most important no vandalism, if not, no matter how beautiful the park also no point.

    I am compelled to answer BO KIA ‘s boasting of how wonderful his purchase of Permatang Sanctuary. He could have expressed his thankfulness in Permatang Sanctuary Forum next door and that is entirely his right yet he chose to shout about how clever he is. Do you think that leading developer who always set the price standard higher and higher in every new project will be that naive to sell at price lower? Bo Kia, do you think you get a perfect deal?

    BO KIA,
    (1)There is Chicken Farm nearby. You will have problem with flies and terrible smell.
    It will be especially worse in raining season. Bo Kia, i could not imagine how could you
    subject your family with these possible health problems especially your
    family members /young kids.
    (2)If we want to buy a house in Main Land, that place is the last option. People said the
    location that you bought is neither here nor there.
    It is not near to Juru Auto City/Jalan Raja Uda or any other established places.
    In fact, there are many more better housing projects in Main Land. We could
    have introduced those to you if you are humble enough to ask. Your purchase of
    Permatang Sanctuary is Nothing to shout about.
    (3)Traffic Jam in Bukit Mertajam has been given a new definition. It is called TOXIC.
    With every new Taman, comes another traffic lights. You may forcefully condition your
    mind that it is ok to listen to radio while trapped in traffic jam for 1-2 hours but
    we would rather spend quality time with our family at home.
    (4)Bo Kia, if you work in Penang Island. What the….. you buy house in Main Land?
    Come on, just admit you can not afford one in Penang Island. If you can afford, you will
    definitely buy one in Penang Island right? No shame to admit so instead of sour grapes.
    If you have young kids and we are sure you wish to go back to see them during lunch
    time or any time they need you. Bukit Mertajam? While you work in Penang

  160. Michael
    June 5th, 2012 at 18:33 | #160

    True. You work in Penang Island and buy house in Penang Island la.
    I have a friend who let go his house in Perda and is willing to buy a 2nd hand small apartment because of all these nuisance in travelling/traffic jams.

    Bo Kia, rethink again about your purchase. Nothing to shout about, for your purchase of Permatang Sanctuary….
    Here, we work in Penang Island and naturally we buy our house in Penang Island.
    Balik Pulau is the new development place for us, we do not wish to be trapped in traffic jam. And we could not understand why are you so happy to spend time in traffic jam for 1-2 hours with your radio? Get used to it already? Perhaps

  161. J & J
    June 5th, 2012 at 20:10 | #161

    June 5th, 2012 at 21:45 | #162

    Whether it is Bukit Mertajam or whatever places in Main land, it is frustrated with the traffic jams.
    Last time, it is only the jam at Penang Bridge.
    Now, not only at Penang Bridge. After you reach Main Land, the bottle neck towards the various junctions cause tremendous Traffic Jams.
    Just admit those shortcomings and frustrations of staying at Main Land.
    I agree that, you work in Penang Island, then buy house at Penang Island la.

    I believe a fair minded person will consider the pros and cons before he decides. They come as investors, speculators or genuine owners. I think no harm to hear what others have to say. End of the day, his money and not your money is spent. His loss or his gain, that his destiny. Wisdom is the one who weighs everything in proper perspective without getting emotional.

    Those who stay in Island and can afford to own a house on the island, should buy the house on the island. There are speculation that mainland house price gone up because of a lot of island people came over to mainland to buy houses. Btw, 50~70% of Permatang Sactuary, Orange Villa, BM Permai, BM Utama houses were bought by peoples from the island. Those who want to do investment, I suggest to invest at mainland. Recently, my friend sold one house at Kota Permai (OC not yet obtained), he earned about RM60K within 2 years. He bought at RM360K and sold at RM420K.

    Hi all

    Would like to know some purchasers in Prestige 3. I went there more than 3 times and basically, all the phase one unit on SST, DST, Semi-D are sold out, including the showrooms ! Those who went there must know how the showroom looks like.

    I actually work in Balik Pulau, part time, that’s why I can visit regularly during weekends. Spoke to a guard during non-peak hour last Sunday, the terrace corner showroom was sold at RM810K (if I can remember correctly), the Semi-D corner is reserved for the developer owner’s daughter and the corner SST showroom was sold too. The remaining units are the T-junction units for SST, which is left not many as well. Therefore, phase 1 finished.

    Phase 2, I saw some keen buyers kept asking and wondering whether they can book or not but since I got a unit already, I care less to them. Basically, I like the huge garden and those SST and terrace in phase 1 will be located very near to the garden’s gazebo, maybe can do barbecue and have a brisk walk in the evening.

    Mind to introduce purchaser(s) ?

    Wow, SK,

    Just for me to analyse, may I know whereabout is the property that you friend bought ? RM689K, is it SST, DST, S-D or condominium ? That really sound really lucrative. Does the unit a corner unit ? Fully furnished ? I believe that’s happening in Penang and I would like to see those options if I can afford. Thank you ahead.

    DST Intermediate getting OC ? not so soon. There are basically 6 units completed unit for us to view which are 3 showrooms and another 3 without furnishing. The rest are not even start piling. You should go to the site and see. OC – Occupation Certification is when the property is completed and get all the relevant approval before a person can go in and stay.

    I am one of the purchaser and the first drawdown is requested. I think the servicing of interest will start most probably in September after the first release in August. I went to the side the piling on quite a number of DST has already started.

    I will come back from US to Penang next year January. Our work location near USM island. Hoping to buy a DST in Penang. Seems like BP is the better option for relatively affordable price for landed property in penang island. I like a relatively remote place away from city. Is there any units left for ~500k DST in BP?

    Since out of the country for many years, here would like to consult some information:
    1. How long the travel from BP to USM?
    2. How is the traffic during peak hour?
    3. How is the hilly road condition? Is it dangerous to drive daily?
    4. What is G&G concept means?
    5. What is the population ratio (malay, chinese, Indian) for this residential area in BP?

    Thanks for your time to answer!!

    I went to the showroom and the surroundings. It is impressive with the showroom. However, I am very sad as most of the phase 1 and 2 are fully sold out except for junction houses. The phase 3 is up for registration but I particularly like the SST showroom. Small and simple with contemporary design. May I know who is the buyer and will you like to sell them in the sub-sale market ? How much is your selling price ? Any SST purchaser like to release their units ? I am confident that this area will be a hit as many purchasers already booked the unit. I heard the showroom for SD is reserved for the boss daughter and the DST showroom is still available but it is facing the road.

    The Tsunami affected place is end of Jalan Baru which is about 600m away from Prestige III. It is end of Jalan Baru exact location is Banting. Where Prestige III location is Off Jalan Baru, so location wise is safe. And i did ask the land surveyor, is quite a solid land. No worry at all. As for flood situation, i asksed the Balik Pulau residents so far over the 20yrs, is never happen at Jalan Baru. If flood happen till this area, then is quite a serious flood. I am not very PLB is a good developer or not, but compare to Ivory, the quality of work is much more better. To look for investment part, we’re not looking for short term at now. Hope my above comment isn’t offended. :)

    Fingers crossed… 😉

    But, anything could be happen..
    Just see, Botanica.CT also came out a future commercial plan – “Pedestrian Mall”


    Looks more like a serious contender to grap that “golden” hypermarket..

    how u all think ?
