    I called up developer asked why carpark sell RM30k so expensive. They told me they sell at future price where Jelutong will be price like Tg Bungah later. Since the studio can sell at future price, there is no reason the carpark cannot sell. Only the 700sqf LMC beside is an exception because government has capped LMC price at RM75K.

    @monica
    The developer started to mention “the rebate RM20K will be remove soon” since they started to sell before officially launch at early April. Till today, this words still valid.

    @monica
    I believe there many of us would like to see the current status (progresses) of the showroom at this moment of time to make certain decision. You can opt to ignore the “incomplete photos”, and choose to see them when the complete showroom pictures are shown.

    @Pen
    for those already booked the unit why not go to the site to see the real showhouse instead of pictures upload in internet? Completed showhouse picture is mainly for those haven’t made decision or still looking for house to buy, i think they prefer to see completed showhouse pic.

    Agreed with you. This showhouse doesn’t give me the “wow” factor….i prefer to add another 50-100K for a bigger built up condo with better location and not “future price”.

    how do u define ‘wow’ factor? what type of design can give a ‘wow’ factor? this is studio suite, the design cannot compare with design of bungalow or mansion which give wow wow factor. After i saw the showhouse, i book the 485sf today, just for my parents to stay, as long as i like it, my dad & mom also like it.

    i book the unit before seeing the showhouse, after i saw the incomplete showhouse, i am not regret to make the decision to buy studio suite here, although design not a wow factor, but it is elegance & modern, just simple & nice.

    After booked, no matter what you see, need to think positive and say it is good (just look at the positive side), then, you will become happy buyer. Be happy as life is too short to be unhappy on anything.

    my parents not driving, i stay at The Spring, at this moment no plan to buy extra car park, maybe i will change my mind in future, my husband told me Jelutong will ‘ong’ in future and parking lots there very limited, request me to buy one.

    May 31st, 2012 at 18:30 | #26

    @LSLY
    i agree renovation is depreciate its value in years but not sure about the property, nobody know what will happen in future.. as i know island only has 17% land for development, price of property will keep on rising although poor economic performance.

    For renovation, today we spend RM50k on it, but in 2016 7 beyond, RM50k cannot get what we want because manpower salary & raw materials continue up year by year.

    May 31st, 2012 at 19:37 | #27

    Why are the people stopping me from requesting to post the incomplete showroom photos? What is the hidden agenda? To bad to be revealed at this blog? Will affect the sales target? Will decrease the potential buyers’ confidence? I wonder why? Think deep lo.

  28. LSLY
    May 31st, 2012 at 23:10 | #28

    @ST Goh
    general rule for renovation cost is not more than 20% of property price to limit the loss of depreciation…The renovation cost is ~80%to 100% of bare unit value for this project, not worth it! Developer earn the renovation project…

    Wah lau eh, dog shed also bigger than this unit? but don say like that la, some human also like small small studio, easy for housekeeping and manage; while most ppl can’t affort, so go for small unit like LMC. What to do? Now lack of land, and moving towards high density residential, human now live in ‘birdcage’.

    June 2nd, 2012 at 19:49 | #45

    A family with a couple, two children and may be one/two parent live together, a unit with 1300sf onwards will be just nice. If 4 rooms, then will be better, with ~1500sf. This is a typical trend; the most importantly, need to plan according to size of family before buying a house.

  46. Ah Dog
    June 2nd, 2012 at 19:50 | #46

    If budget constraint for bigger unit, then can consider Mutiara Height with 1600sf, 5 rooms, at ~RM280k for 1 car park; or RM300k for 2 car parks. It is very near to this project.

    I don’t think this will be a successful or high class suite that they claim for. Did anyone know abt security system for this building? The answer is totally no security guard check point for this building, they just provide one tier security at lift entrance, one resident touch all ppl can tailgating. Included dog also can in.

    i’m not sure bout the 20K rebate. Fast fast go see the actual unit and check with the developer. When its studio with only 400 or 500sq ft, everything will be small. hehehe. I havent see the actual showhouse in Bworth and will do so soon.

    When to the showroom last week and booked a 485 sf unit after talk to the salesperson. They’ve change the layout a bit for 485 sf unit (not my preferred layout).

    After view the showroom i do hope developer will add kitchen ventilation cause cooking will spoil the house. And i feel it hard for 485 sf unit to add own ventilation due to the layout.

  65. Wannabuy
    June 5th, 2012 at 12:01 | #65

    I went to the showroom last Saturday and I would say that the renovation is considered okay for me, giving a 8/10 but with the money to be paid, I will give a 7/10.

    Not everything is perfect, for example, the suite 7, 612 sqft, I dislike the utility room, there is a cheap type window just next to the table, of which I hope they can change it or just fill it with brick. They did not install doors at the room and the utility, wondering whether there is one and I think definitely yes, but what kind of door quality will be there.

    The suite 6, 411 sqft, the book shelves next to the television is rather or too simple and I wish they can do something more grant. The kitchen is just next to the study table, which I think is a little awkward, but wondering where could they fit the study table then…

    I still prefer the 611 sqft design maybe because of the size, of which the mirror installed on the wall makes the place look bigger. On the other hand, the 411 sqft red and white maybe suits youngsters more.

    The 2 units that I booked on level 27th floor does not have showroom to view (404 sqft and 593 sqft) and as a consolation, I hope they will give me some surprises when it is completed. I forgot to asked them about the pictures which are hanging on the walls, are they included or not.

    There is another suite sale similar to this, I wonder anyone went to One One Eight at Tanjung Tokong (the current Island Plaza), where I believe they changed the commercial units into suites, ranging from 527 – 1000++ sqft. The price range from 400K++, maintenance fee is 0.35 per sqft. Fully renovated, partially furnished. I did not go there and they are having open showroom yesterday and today.

    Maybe someone would go there or made comparison ? I decided not to go because I don’t plan to stay there and I do not want to see too many options, making me headache. I just like to compare prices and know about the per sqft price and the furnishing from others. If from paper, if the smallest unit is 527 sqft and cost RM400K, per sqft will be around 760 per sqft. Comparable to the unit that I booked on 593 sqft at RM437K at straits Garden, L27, per sqft is also around 754 per sqft. SAME. However, the developer is selling Straits Garden to be completed in 3-4 years time, which already included inflation, cost opportunity etc.

    Thinking further, I respect people (who want to have a suite and want to stay at Tanjung Tokong area) as many would want to consider One One Eight as it is so near Gurney and below is the Island Plaza, (most of the commercial units are vacant) but still okay, but the selling price is that the purchaser has to pay all upfront and get the loan rolling.

    Anyway, after going through the net for months, if anyone who like to to have a suite concept, Penang has only a few choice, Straits Quay, One One Eight (out of my range as it is too expensive and not near to my working area), The Light Collection II (fully booked within a day) and Straits Garden (Still got unit left). Despite all the above, I decided to stick to my booking at the moment, as DIBS is something really interesting and I would want to have the experience to stay in a suite.

    To those who have booked, I would like to ask a question :-
    1. I wonder once it is completed, how much would you sell if there is a purchaser then ?
    2. If someone asked you to let go of your current unit on the day you sign the SnP, will you let go if the purchaser wants to give you some premium over your unit ?
    3. Eventhough I know the developer would not allow sub-sale before completion, I think there will be purchaser who would want the fully snapped up units. This is because I have a friend who just let go his collection II suite at a gain close to RM80K !!!

    Feedback ?

    @Wannabuy
    for your info, the showhouse is 485sf & 611sf, not 411sf that u mentioned. Sales person told me the interior design will be different from 485sf, i.e 411sf, 593sf & 610sf will have different design because the floor layout is not same.

    Any “show carpark” to view? I am interested to see the carpark with RM10k renovation. I think the carpark got more room for price appreciation and higher rental return. Currently only RM300psf for carpark Vs RM754psf for studio. With just RM300k I can buy 10 carparks. If in future Jelutong like Tg Bungah and Gurney Plaza setup next door, then I can charge parking fee RM2 per hour, each day 12hrs (10am to 10pm) = RM240; 1 months= 30xRM240=RM7.2k!!! On top of that I can rent to SG residents as overnight carpark from 10pm to 10am, easily top up to RM10k per month! Fantastic! This is commercial property so I guess not a problem to rent to outsider shopping kaki…..

    Sounds good man. I will partner with you BN future. I scratch your back, you scratch mine. I think we can get loan from Bank Negara or setup a company and partner with PNB or Khazanah to make your project more grand. We can justify the purchase and quote millions of ringgit while per car park only cost RM30K. Sounds good?

    Oh, almost forget about this project – Warisan Tower or something. Why not i buy all the car parks, and you get your friend friend build the tower next to this project? I split the profit with you later. Oh, i will also setup up another company to polish the car park floor until shining shining. You hire my company as sub-contract ya. I put you as Director in this company. But important is the Warisan Tower and the business contract.

    I think to expand our business, we can ask Crazy Dog to partner with us too. He is another Smart guy that we can make use of him.

    After see the first picture of the show room, it let me think that the developer is kind of stingy as the tile in the bathroom is not even built up to the wall. It is just less that half of the wall’s height. Plus the readers comment that there is no air ventilation in the kitchen, i m wondering whether how the smell in toilet and kitchen can ran out from the space as it is highly probable that air-cond will be open almost every single hour when at home.

    As the buyer is willing to pay premium price on such a small unit with renovation, and the response is quite good so far, i really hope that the developer will be more generous towards the quality of renovation. BUT, after see the pictures, i m kind of dissapointed as it is too far away from my what i hope t see it. It is just simple and nice ( can see the developer try to save here and there) but not grand, kind of wondering whether it worth for the premium paid.

    By the way, just want to ask who manage to grab the suite 3 and 3A which the salesperson said is sold out within 2 weeks? I m kind of wondering whether the developer ‘goreng’ themselve to keep the good units. If it is, cham lo!

    One day i called to office to ask about the project, the salesperson asked me go to see property fair in queensbay and all types on units are still available. (Around end of April) On the same day itself, i go to queensbay to have a look. But the sales person said the suits 3, 3a and 10 are totally sold out. Wouldn’t it seem contradict with what the saleperson told me? So, would anyone tell me any guys or who u may known have booked for the type who so called ‘sold out’?

    Thanks.

    @Sir3n
    i booked a unit 2 months ago. after viewing the show unit i inform d sales ppl that the cooking ventilation is missing, they provide fridge, microwave n cooking hot plate but no cooking ventilation?room very small, even cook an egg d curtain, carpet, bed & sofabed will be greased with egg mell, after project complete baru add in is harder, have to knock a hole in d whole, d rest kitchen cabinet needs to tear to make room for d ventilation, somemore need to worry d reno guy will knock off any piping or wiring in d wall or not, very messy. but…. after i voive out developer seems not going to give d ventilation as they say no one voice this before, only me being d ‘odd voice’. i am thinking want to let go because of this issue

    same feeling here, developer said fully furnish, but its so obvious to d eye ‘d cooking ventilation’ is missing. i booked 3a, d time i bought only 3 units left, before they have roadshow at QB, i made my booking at butterworth dev office. i heard mine was d 2nd booking sessions already, the time i book 3a & 3 only few units left, the rest mostly all available

    It is very commom to hear the word “sold out” in every project. All sui sui units as well as landed property is reserved by d internal (stakeholder) plus contractors n vendors before open for public…u won’t get d special booking unless u know them well. As i know, there is no longer a traditional type of developer in today market. After d rebate is over, u may try ask d suite 3, 3a n 10 again but off course difference price already….

    d sales person said thats why we provide you microwave to heat up instead of cooking, then why provide us fridge & hot plate?? developer expect me to fry egg or cook maggie mee with microwave? or expect me to ta bao food everyday, put in fridge, then heat up using microwave to eat??? i plan to own stay or invest, for own stay buying at rm700+ per sq ft i close 1 eye if furniture all good, furniture if not cheap china brand is ok, but without a cooking ventilation??? i really beh syok, is this so called fully furnished at all? mind them, other developer in penang & kl when they put ‘fully furnished’ they come with cooking ventilation. Even single ppl, married ppl without kids, retiree ppl, dont we cook also sometime? i am not talking about deep fry level but u guys know what i mean. developer said can open window if got smell, d ONLY ‘window’ is d bedroom window, do u really seriously mean that? or should i open my front door too let air out (oh yeah, without steel gate too i remember previous comment got mentioned) Really really ridiculous! any members here who have booked SG and is voicing out to d developer pls help to feed back on this, with me alone they treat as ‘mosquitoes voice’ & i dont want to be a water fish who buy at ‘future price include furniture’ but still need to buy few furniture on my own (buy own & install definately needs to tear down some part cabinet already installed, ggrrhh) thank you.

    @ProspectBuyer
    probably I will cancel the booking due to:

    1. developer inform that what we see in the showhouse may not 100% what we get.
    2. the developer will provide equal value of all the electrical appliances for purchasers, may not get what we see in showhouse.
    3. no ventilation in the kitchen.
    4. showhouse does not show what type of entrance door, bedroom door, doubt not the solid wood door provided for purchasers.
    5. sales person inform the height of bathroom tiles is till the ceiling, but only 7ft height in the showroom, therefore sales person statement cannot be trusted.

    the above 5 factors cause me wanna to cancel the booking…not final decision yet.

As a consequence, i do not cancel my booking.

    Ya, 411sf actually sold out, but some buyers cancel to change to bigger unit in last minute, so u able to get it. At that time, i knew only 1 unit left for 411sf as at 5pm :-)

    ya, 411sf sold out fast because corner unit (only 2 units per floor), i like it because got extra window in the living room (485sf does not have window in living room), therefore more brighter & got scenery view.

    i saw the chart, about 56 units unsold (up to 7 june 2012), i.e. about 76% sold already.

There are many brilliant choices out there and why must ppl choose this shoebox with no balcony or just a compressor size balcony. If you already book or made downpayment for this “Bird Cage”, good luck and be ready to lock yourself there and enjoy facing 4 phase of walls everyday 360 days per year. Hope you won’t get nuts later…hahaha…..

    Minami, ST Goh, mine is 3A, i booked 2 units, lowest (i forgot lowest is 10th or 11th floor) & highest (30th floor). lowest with 1 carpark, hightest i booked with 2 car park i.e. RM320k (after minus RM20k rebate). You can ask Ms Teoh, she was the one who served me.

    … I was thinking, if we ask & voice out what was missing, developer clarify/give or reject, at least we know now what we are buying & we can decide to go or not to go with no regret. I do not rule out the possibility that I would still go for this developer other project in the future. p/s: I only know how to cook egg, dont know how to cook chicken.

    i treat this studio suite as hotel room, ok lah, easy for house keeping, compare with semi-D i stay currently, need to hire maid to do cleaning job. Small unit means cheaper maintainance fee, just about RM110 per month to enjoy all the facilities. Actually i plan to cancel booking due to some quality of renovation issue, however, my wife wants me to buy it, if appreciate value in future just sell it, if not, just keep it.

    Please comment your own group of people, see who made personal attack 1st. Since Malaysia is freedom market, then why stop people for making U-Turn or cancel booking? It is also their personal matter and money, right? You think people is going to trust you as a real buyer here? Make difference stories among your own group (developer/seller) to promote your property and you call this ethical? You don’t worry how many properties I own. Invest in this shoebox with 300K (411sf) for vacation home is a wrong moved. Unless your sub sales value can hit 600-700K after 3 years, then is difference story.

    I think the same with you. Hotel room charge at Jelutong only RM250 average. With the same value of SG, you can stay up to 25 years, means 4 nights/mth or 48 nights/yr. Meanwhile no need to pay any maintenance fees and do house keeping.

    buyers of SG, no need to argue with them.
    They are hoping that the price of SG will drop to their target price or
    with such price, they can get 1000sq ft unit or
    their ideal location with nice beach.

    Good luck to them if they are hoping for this to come true in PG island.

    @monica
    i agree with ProspectBuyer that those who already buy this property can just ignore the bad comments from others. What i am not agree with you is that you cannot blame those gave negative comments one and say he/she is jeolous and cannot afford to buy any unit here. You should accept their comments as benchmark for next investment and I believe they are experienced enough in property investment after owned so many houses.

    Hi, May i know how you guys manage to change unit? Coz i ask before i pay 5k booking fees and the salesperson say cannot change.

    By the way can we propose to developer to change some of the electrical appliances to other more useful appliances (example: microwave to oven, etc….)

    Any of you call the bank agent for home loan application? Which panel bank provide better rate?

    Anyone know roughly S&P signing date? And how long will they wait for us coz i might be out of town.

    i think u misunderstood my comment already, i point the crystal ball & MRS comments, they are purposely come to sabotage, i m not saying is u.

    @XY
    those people who give negative comment are very happy to see specific project fail or “tidak laku”, when they knew buyer(s) cancel booking, they came to support & hooray, they did the same comment on other projects too, really fed up of those people.

  144. ST Goh
    June 8th, 2012 at 18:28 | #144

    @Dog Dog
    monica’s comment is not ‘tembak’ u lah, i knew who came to sabotage but i will choose to ignore their comment in future.

    @Sir3n
    sales person told me can change the unit but i did not change because cannot get the unit i want. I prefer facing swimming pool & podium landscape because there is no scenery view in Jelutong. Higher unit can a bit view the sea (45 degree) but i don’t think it last longer because future development may block the view.

    i receive sms from developer, 2 panel banks will provide better rates & deal with DIBS (0% interest during contruction) i.e. Public Bank & OCBC. I m yet go to apply the loan, don’t know the rate.

    i do not think developer will change microwave to oven because oven more expensive. Developer 1st priority is making profit & try cut the cost to minimum, they won’t simply provide products better than show in showhouse, they always emphazise will provide equal value of electrical appliances.

    At beginning, developer inform expected to sign SnP end of 2012, but seem will do it earlier, i do not know the exact month, maybe will go to visit their fair at Queensbay to know more info.

    just visit roadshow at Queensbay this afternoon, surprise the unit booking quite good. Seem local people also accept small unit size of studio, I heard Airmas also wanna build same type of studio at Jelutong area, the developer won’t simply invest huge amount of money into the project that no demand from buyers, from year of 2016 & beyond, landscape of Jelutong will be changed, state govt need start to plan widen the present narrow road (Jalan Jelutong).

    ya lor, very surprise the sales tactic by developer, if buyers cancel the booking, that particular unit will increase price & re-open for sales, then developer still telling buyer got RM20k rebate. Price increase is good & fair for early bird buyers.

    It is not the size that matter, but it is obviously overpriced… RM700+psf in Jelutong, some “buyers” (=developer?) said is “future price”, which nobody know when is that time, but for sure developer got it NOW (and it is you pay them)! I just posted my doubts and some “hard core buyers” keep accused me satoge the project without valid arguement, while I was just spoke of my doubts. I think I may spoilt the drama or someone’s script by just posting some common sense questions. May be for somobody drama=project, sabotage the drama=sabotage the project. Let see whether the hot air from those ‘blow jobs’ can fare the high ‘future price’ and setting new record for penang properties not…hee hee..dance, dance, dance, dance, monica…..

    Beware, there is a steam boom nearby (waste water treatment plant, or ‘air najis’ pembetungan), now still new, so it is efficient and no smell coming out yet. After several years aging, that ‘steam boom’ will start to expose and every time the pump circulate the air tahi, you will smell it. Good luck, and those stay nearby to loji air pembetungan, you will know, can smell it right? Yes, i have a solid answer, as i kena now, the size of the treatment plant is just 5% of the size that one located at Jelutong.

    Tambun Indah Bhd is run by a bunch of goons. Many of its projects in mainland Penang are not selling well in this hot property market.

    Last week, Icon City in Juru sold 71 units 1.7M-2.2M shop offices in 20 minutes during pre-launch. What a hot hot market!

    Now, you can see Tambun Indah’s ads in Kwong Wah daily. It says that you can buy with only RM3,000 down for these projects: Kelisa Res, Capri Park, BM Res, Tanjung Heights, Dahlia Park. Also, 70K off Pearl garden.
