    Buy low sell high everyone should know..the matter is the holding power in bp is too long compare to town..people can flip 3-5 times till the bp place get mature..eg. basic infra, college, uni, good hospital etc.
    For investment in bp is very slow but own stay is perfect. Problem in pg is the rental is too low even in town, so who want to rent so far like bp? Till 1 day rent a room in town say 1k, people will start moving to bp..Also rental low in town due to salary low in town..So the root cause is Salary in town need to increase..else bp still have same fate.

    Salary also depends on how good or innovation people have, if 10 years no innovative skills . Then stop at the same salary like 10 Years ago and rental should be no change. Meaning bp no change also :)

    400psf in penang is the cheapest in bp, all other in town is already 1k psf. Sooner will be 800psf in BP till that time town will go up to 2-3k psf. Raw material and labour cost will go up again soon. I think that time rental price will start increase due to younger people cannot afford to buy house and have to rent with higher rental price.

    If talking about investment, 800psf still long way to go i guess, still a lot of land to develop in BP area la..PIII is located in quite remote area sumore.

    so far, no application yet been submitted to open hypermarket in BP. however, there probably a police quarters to replace sg korok police station – which is close to P3. we can expect hypermarket later if nu of people increase later on – but dont know when. Air putih got international school, and no plan yet for new institution after politeknik BP officially opened last year. For hotel, I dont think so at d moment. hospital may not, in fact the gov will expand hospital BP.

    i’m originally form BP, and know a lot about BP :-) I even can see the project everyday, 5min drive.haha. lot of rumors hanging around for uni or college here, but not really sure.so far, none for private uni. if public uni, UiTM maybe next. they staying temporary in a building next to BP hospital. without basic amenities, a bit difficult to open private uni here. private uni usually for highclass people and definitely all this anak orang kaya wont stay in BP. my 2 cents! they will choose either INTI college (etc) or maybe new KDU college that will be built in Bt Kawan.

    April 2nd, 2014 at 20:06 | #14

    Noticed that the population in bp is too little to support a hypermarket. If no development on good uni/infra I think hard to convince people to stay in bp except no choice due to their house cant rent out. People will choose batu kawan as future development looks great eg. ikea, factory and new infra..Anyway, environment in bp is very nice eg. green field but still long way to go for development. Pro for own stay and con for quick money. Investor if cant hold maybe make a loss due to got price no taker.

    common sense, July OC obtained people will start selling with 20-25% higher price than they brought. at that time, buyer will feel that buying a brand new unit is cheaper as it includes SPA fees. eg. say they brought 468k at that time, selling price 560k. New one only 568k. People will choose buy new unit. Unless they revised the price.

    Trees with smaller leaf generate more harm: 1) very sticky to the floor, stubborn to sweep away. 2) very easy to clog in the gutter.Palm-type trees have a simple-leaf,never generate problems.

    sales really slow for phase3 now, maybe due to other potential project and also some negative comment here regarding crack etc. New project like The Maven in Titi Teras around 550k for 3storey townhouse with gated and guarded (this what half of us looking to).
    For Phase1&2, if u guys want to sale it back for more that 550k after oc, u will dream for it. Corner lot in Taman Simfoni offered 570k (can check mudah). And lot more vacant house in Palmyra and Botanice offered around 450k-500k. Yes they are a bit older (5yo), but never been occupied and can be considered as ‘new’. Best of luck. Keep this house for you kids though rather than sell it back.

    Excuse me, are you sure The Maven is an absolutely 3 storey townhouse entirely yours for RM550K? Please, do some home works first

    It is not. Out of 3 storey townhouse , there are 2 owners:
    (1) Ground floor- 4 car parks. Each owner gets 2 front-back car parks which means you have to remove your Camry before your wife’s Myvi can drive out to market every morning
    (2) 1st floor- your neighbor house which to me is like a walk-up apartment around 1000sq feet
    (3) 2nd floor- sorry, it is your house because you can only afford RM550K . you have to hike 2 stairs every day. 1st floor is more expensive.

    So, are you sure ” half of us looking to ” The Maven?
    It is even worse than P3 condo in Prestige 3 as at least if you choose P3 Condo your mother-in-law who has knee pain can take the lift to take care of your wife during confinement.
    Size at about 1000sq feet , RM250K and with full condo facilities.

    Still, the best is those early purchasers for the Double Storey House at RM468K.

    the maven $550k only gets 1storey and the BU is <1100 sqft. 1166sqft as they claim is included the store room at the ground floor, which they factor in.
    as for botanica, need to be careful which phase is the house. earlier phase houses are built on cemetery…

    Why do you want to buy a 2nd hand one?
    The history/background of the house is unknown. Possible Defects / leaking/etc are never be sure with 30 minutes view with agent/owner…
    Furthermore, if the house is really good, would you let go yourself if you are owner?

    This is classic. One row of houses, all your neighbors paid RM300K 7-8 years ago and suddenly a Water Fish like you move-in paying RM500K. You will be the subject of discussion in the aunties morning walk. Of course, they like to talk to you especially asking how much you pay…hehehe

    Good bargain? What a joke. It is always and always seller / investors who determine/dictate prices in Penang Island. Your so called good bargain reasoning is just as good as self-comfort.

    Why ? What I describe above happened exactly to you , right? You must be a 2nd hand house buyer/owner. Care to share how much cash you have to spend up front on legal fees for SNP and loan agreement.
    Just accept the reality that given a choice every one would like to purchase a brand new house, why cheat yourself?

    If you are retired, no social life and not in good terms your relatives, Balik Pulau is actually a very good place for you to stay. But if you have to go to work everyday, why torture yourself everyday?…:)

    Any suggestion where to get a affordable home in Island (landed)?

    Hello blur, social life depends on individual. You can go to anywhere you like not only stay in bp. Bp will sure develop. In terms of house pricing if bk price go up for sure bp house go up too.

    Well, that’s similar to asking……can you get a “prestigious” mercedes s-class for RM70k? Caaannn….but the problem is, that RM70k s-class will require you to sacrifice comfort and time because it will give you an uncomfortable ride and frequent breakdowns.

    You will definitely be better off buying a RM70k Toyota vios, enjoying much much more comfort and convenience, not to mention super great resale value!…..:)

    I know, your questions just a sarcasm, right?hahaha, no such thing in BP. Just an isolated place, small public hospital, no shopping complex, no gymnasium, no swimming club, only 3 petrol stations (the one closest to P3 is about 10-15km-petronas), no hypermarket etc. However, lot of people still believe BP is the best place for family, especially to raise up your kids. Out of town and you can easily get cheap prawn and fish in this area. People do hope everything change within 10 years. But, will BP folks need all these changes? can ask BP uncle.hehehe.

    For living in peace for u and ur family, I suggest BP. If u need a modern living, cinema, swimming,clubbing, tuition for ur kids, go find other place. And above all, BP is the cheapest in penang island.

    I regret to miss the opportunity to buy the freehold Semi-D, only RM650K at that time.
    Only managed to grab the Double Storey at RM468K.
    Many penangites spend their childhood staying in flats/condos only and probably will continue so in their life time in Penang Island.

    They really do not have a chance to stay in landed property. When there is opportunity, they are not smart enough to grab it.
    Blame who? They are full of sarcastic remarks when people grab the opportunity in Balik Pulau.
    This is no supermarket la, that no relatives la, no social life la, as if they are living a very high class life with occasionally Starbucks coffee….
    Your half a million condo is nothing and no value in the future especially those in Sungai Ara, Relau, air port area….Mark my words in 5 years time
    My landed even at remote location in Balik Pulau holds more promise/potential in the future

    I think you have a point. In Batu Kawan, you will get to enjoy all these conveniences (cinemas, cafes, modern mall, country/golf club, private hospital, commercial gym etc) very soon, not more than 5 years later.

    With easy and speedy access to factories (both FTZ & mainland) that provide plenty of jobs, and plenty of land for new developments, Batu Kawan will blossom into the “Bandar Utama” of Penang in the very near future, while the old uncles in Balik Pulau sit around their house counting their final days, regretting how he missed that chance to own a RM650k freehold semi-D in the DurianLand, or indulging in his achievements of saving RM1 for that kilo of cheap prawns…..:)

    From property investment stand point ALONE, chances higher that the landed in BP may outperform price of condo in Relau, Sg Ara in next 10/20 years.
    (disclaimer I do not OWN any CONDO there)

    Bear in mind, the TIME ( is a also Money?), Extra petrol, car wear/tear…..which come to the “total cost of ownership”.
    Then how about the children (govenment not Int’l) schooling, tuition etc?
    But BP One glaring advantage NO TOLL compare to BW! Unless State want to build tunnel la.

    The short-sighted guys always give(gave) negative comments to the new house buyers. 40years ago they asked the Greenlane new house buyers near Caltex station ” Alamak, why you bought the house so far from town?” 30years ago,same question was asked to those buying Bayan Baru.20years ago,same question repeated to those buying Batu Ferringgi. Now,besides the same question and plus very winding hilly road lah…lah….In the end, all these houses’ prices rocketting up 3 folds ( some even higher)! They ends up day and night banging own balls!

    Went to the site, noticed the TNB service mains been installed; TNB gave us aluminium cables(not copper instead).A major drawback for aluminium is chemical reaction with any copper connector if not taken care of, and the cables will be overheated very fast. I fully understand the problem TNB facing:- theft by using copper cables. Owners need to check meterboard connections for safety.

    I am staying and working in KL, however, I still think BP is a nice place and worth investing. At 4-600k, the double storey link house is attractive. Though BP may be considered ‘remote’ to some, but I also see this as its ‘selling point’. KL people may not believe one can still get a landed property at this price on the island. I remember some 24 years ago, many of my friends refused to buy property in Puchong, claiming the place too ‘ulu’ lah’, too far lah, ex-mining land no good lah….now, it is a booming town, and guess how much was the price of a double storey link house on ex-mining land then? Around 55k! I did not buy there either but bought an apartment that was double the price and half in size @ Old Klang Road. Do I regret? Yes. I am. But, I do not think I will regret for investing in BP. It may take 10 years to see BP grown into mature township, but the land is scare and population is growing, where in Penang Island that you can still find landed property at this price?

    大华高原组屋复工在望 国云集团也将建7658间可负担屋

    (槟城27日讯)搁置18年的大华高原2A组屋复工在望,作为白武士的国云集团(PLB)也将在同一地段的64英亩土地,兴建7658间低于40万令吉的可负担房屋,复兴计划或将与全新屋业发展同步进行。

    建竣后缴付1万可拥屋

    槟首长林冠英周日巡视大华高原2A组屋,向苦等18年的购屋者形容恶梦即将结束,好梦将要到来。购屋者将在组屋于18个月内建竣后,缴付1万令吉,便能拥有他们的屋子。

    在复兴计划下,国云集团只要上呈所有文件,便能获得动工令。

    首长说,民联州政府308执政后,便致力解决搁置房屋计划的“手尾”,以迈向居者有其屋目标。是次复兴计划是一小步,只有跨步走出才能迎来成功,国云集团要完成复兴计划,才来谈“其他”的(新屋业发展)。

    在首长要求国云需要先完成复兴计划时,国云集团执行总裁拿督王籽云马上反映上市公司有资金问题,复兴计画有必要与新屋业发展同步动工。

    首长强调复兴计画须先完成

    首长强调,同步同工没问题,但复兴计画必须优先完成。

    @Laurence

    Thank you for sharing your personal experience. It really helps for people who are in the process of making their property investment.

    The case you mentioned regarding Puchong vs Old Klang Rd is a very relevant example when you make comparisons between BP vs Batu Kawan.

    Batu Kawan precisely has the ingredients that Puchong had 20 years ago for rapid development, namely huge huge tracks of relatively cheap, flat, and fresh lands available for new development. Puchong was made very accessible for people who are looking for affordable housing by building new highways (in our case, second bridge). As Puchong grows, more and more employment opportunities were created in the area (same goes for Batu kawan). Puchong also acts as a MODERN commercial/residential centre for older surrounding towns (same goes for Batu Kwan to Butterworth, SP etc).

    If you buy BP, you will end up making same mistake as Old Kland Rd, when you thought it should be a better bet since it is near KL (like BP is on Penang island). But things don’t work that way. Batu Kawan is a once in a lifetime opportunity, don’t have your judgement blurred by your cravings for durians!

    What Laurance meant is he regret to buy nearer town area apartment with higher price compare to “remote” landed house. This situation is like comparing somewhere near georgetown/town area luxury million condo to ‘remote’ BP landed house. He is not regret to invest BP landed house. Not like what u meant batu kawan vs BP? pls read again and again to understand before voice out.

    @ng

    Laurence is not regretting buying BP instead of Batu Kawan now because he failed to learn from his lesson of Old Klang Road vs Puchong, and he failed to see the similarities between Batu Kawan and Puchong. But once Batu Kawan starts to unfold itself, he will regret it. Not only regret he bought BP instead of Batu Kawan, but also regret he did not learn from his first lesson….:)

    @ng

    As a matter of fact, Batu Kawan will be even more successful then Puchong because it will have both the characteristics of Puchong & Bandar Utama. Once in a lifetime opportunity, don’t miss out. You have to start tuning your brain to Batu Kawan while it is still relatively greenfield, and make preparation so that you are there when it happens. Don’t waste your time in BP.

    For an average joe, you can easily pick up a couple of million ringgit from Batu Kawan. Consolidate your asset and get your finance right. Don’t waste your time picking durians in Balik Pulau.

    I think is for different type of market.

    For BP is more for residential and BK is more for Commercial..

    The comparisation to KL should be BP = SK and BK = Puchong

    Both property also go up now. If you want to do business choose BK and better lifestyle BP.

    Likewise, MEX hwy is like PG 2nd bridge. now SK going to connect to MEX same as BP going to connect to 2nd bridge.

    The only different is KL more agressive development than PG. Concept is more or less the same..

    Buy where is buyer choice

  152. investor77
    April 28th, 2014 at 17:15 | #152

    The only advantage for BP is the Airport and good hospital still in PG island.

    BK as commercial area ; pay toll is a must. But Prai house will go up one day to million for dst when material price + gst is up.

    Indirectly, this explained that island house price (except BP) will go up at least 2-3 times for foreign investors game. Whereas local investor game only at BK or BP.

    @investor77

    “Likewise, MEX hwy is like PG 2nd bridge. now SK going to connect to MEX same as BP going to connect to 2nd bridge.”

    Hahahaha….how does BP get connected to 2nd bridge? That’s the big issue with BP you see. There’s no decent connection to civilization, only mountain roads!….:D

    And by the time BP has any proper connection (if at all it happens), you would already have all the actions in Batu Kawan (Ikea, Ikano, Private uni, hospital, country club etc) ready. And once it starts, it will keep rolling, I am sure you’ve seen that in Bandar Utama and Puchong.

    April 28th, 2014 at 17:32 | #154

    @investor

    You are right. Hospitals on island is better then mainland. However, it will take longer for you to reach a good penang island hospital from BP then Batu Kawan!…..:D Hahahaha…Now you see why it’s stupid to stay in BP, well of course, unless you like picking durians. But please remember, if a durian falls on your head, by the time you reach a good penang island hospital, most likely you’re already dead.

    April 28th, 2014 at 19:51 | #157

    @manners
    u r right.have u ever seen a brain inside a durian?no right? the most durian have is jus yellowish flesh.lol

    Anyway for own living buyer, jus choose an affordable place which near to your work and your family/relatives. Don’t worry too much about pricing drop or increase for short term, all the houses price will increase for long run.

    For investor,
    some choose BP because
    1)It is the last piece of affordable land on island.
    2)BP hospital will develop
    3)The highway from Teluk kumbar to Queensbay is in progress. This will ease the bottleneck at teluk kumbar. (balik pulau widen road is link to teluk kumbar)

    some choose mainland because
    1)There is more develope compare to BP like BM,Juru.
    2)2nd penang bridge link from Batu kawan
    3)For batu kawan it will develop soon but we still don’t know how fast it is. At the moment only Ikea sign contract to build at there and it will take 5yrs to complete built.

    So judge your own which is better for u to invest for short or long term and stop talking about how well you invest,if u r good enough,u already have lots of land in penang before any developer build a house there (before 2008) cheers~~

    hi,durian
    You made a huge blunder by:-1) say all P3 owners are stupid.
    2) malicious cursing.
    Do not ever tell me your school teachers NEVER taught you how to respect others?
    Do not ever have a wicked and malicious mind to curse others. Bear in mind:- What goes around,comes around.People bought BP houses are their personal choice, and NONE of your buisness!

    Oh yeah, I have been taught that since young, by parents, teachers, grannies etc.

    In real world, you can’t call someone stupid, STUPID, coz it’s rude. You can’t call someone ugly, UGLY, coz it’s bad manners….:D But in cyberworld, haha….:D

    U r nothing in some people’s eyes actually.U did know nothing of some people here and just use your small brain to judge how ppl lousy in property investment and etc. Hello~~ how did you know some people did in the past?some already invest in George town old house and earn x10 of the $ they invest (before penang earn unesco heritage title). And some already earn more in 2008 till 2012. U are just a slow act and a follower in some people eyes. Are u the smartest and the best investor? LOL (u are just a small potato)

    just visited the place two days ago, can say 90% work done for all units. All TNB installation to each unit almost done as well. Just that big hall and surau still under construction. if they wait these two then apply for OC,perhaps might be delayed a bit. I think, at least end of the year for OC if there no issue raised later on (crack etc).

    Apartment already under construction, already in second floor.

    For houses over 40years old,the u/g cable terminates inside the premises’ outer wall, but soon TNB facing many problems(be it maintenance or emergency). Now TNB relocates the u/g cables outside and the most suitable location is the road junction as they can connect the consumers’ service mains to the lamp-post with zero problem. By this way easy for them to do maintenance & etc too.FYI,there is no way to eradicate(eliminate) the use of lamp-post(world wide).

    Yes, we all need to bear the extras charged by TNB. It is nothing wrong with the developer as they have to consider the sales and marketting strategy. If they provide this package,sure enough the price will be higher. Anyhow it is too late now.

    Easy for TNB and telecom to install cables by pillars. Old house’s back lane always car blocking the road tnb/telecom have problem to remove some car.. underground cable is harder to install cable and might dig road again if not able to handle the capacity or upgrade to fiber/unify one day.

    I think the overall for this Prestige 3 is no bad. i tried to survey there last week, quite and nice environment.

    There are also a lot of government office, convenience store. The developer also reserve a huge land for the welcome the Hypermarket investor to invest. It may take some times to develop, it only need to take time. Last time QB area also not so good as now, but time is proven to us that as along as developer interest to develop, then the place will be better than now

    For those who dream to own the landard house in Island, i will say there is still a good place to buy. If you need a lot of entertainment, then you are not suitable to stay there as for me, that place is really out of the city noise. You will feel no more any tension of traffic jam, car horn sound, etc when you stay there. Of course, teh journey to go back to home will be more longer as normal. But please ask yourself, in Island, which area no traffic jam? Just be patient on the road. Stay at BP, you will definitely enjoy a peaceful weekend or rest time.
