    Thanks Jude & clearvision. But don’t put so much hope on this news as RM300psf for condo in Georgetown is pretty hard to get already. If it is real, sure people will Q up couple of weeks there before solf launch. Is anyone there check this up with MPPP website?

    clover :
    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.
    BUYER, PLEASE BEWARE OF TB!

    Which Tambun Indah’s project are not selling well? And what do you mean by “not selling well” anyway?

    Good projects and good developers do not need to advertised like that especially in PG island. Sometimes, Good projects and bad developer , example the idea group also don’t need to advertise like that in PG.

    I remenbered when they launched the Juru Heights, they put up so many buntings in my neighbourhood in the island until the whole area become so ugly. The message is clear , they build cheap houses in very lousy area, and you can own one with very low downpayment.

    We already get the message. So please don’t do that again in the island and make our area look so messy with all the cheap buntings. Not surprisingly, Juru heights turn out to be Juru Sai eventually.

    Hi purchasers,

    I have not actually gone to the bank to enquire about the loan financing but I heard that PBB and OCBC can consider up to 90% financing (for residential) provided it is not your third house. However, MBB is offering at most 80% due to commercial type and it is not affected by whether it is your 3th or 4th house.

    Do you have concerns over the margin of advance ? I would like to know more from the purchasers who actually check with the banks. Thanks.

    Me too, still undecided.
    but, most likely will go for the OCBC coz can get up to 90%…further no need to pay for the interest yet.. Please do correct me if wrong.

    Very Simple XY.

    After LKS read today Kwong Wah, and he saw a HALF- PAGE insertion advertisement on this project, he became a little bit shaky. How come still advertise BIG BIG after so long ?

    And he almost fainted when he saw another smaller insertion to advertise the same project in another page. Some paper, same day.

    So fiar, he has never seen any developer doing that in Penang. This is definitely a record. And he decided to call in the Malaysian Guiness World Record Team. You should emphatize with him and try to understand how he feel.

    b. fully renovated.

    1 weeks ago I went to visit showhouse & noticed that 2 units of 411sf available for sale, 2 days ago my friend went to visit showhouse & back to inform me there are 7 units of 411sf available for sale, I am doubt the sales record is fake & not good that reported by some buyers previously. I am yet to decide to buy, my parents want me to buy bigger home with at least 2 or 3 rooms. Base on my budget & ability, I may buy a house in mainland.

    @ksgoh
    the sales chart display by developer is not actual qty booked or sold, last 3 weeks I plan to book 411sf, all units been sold out, but 2 days ago, there are about 10-11 units available for sales. Sales person told me some buyers change the unit, therefore re-open for sales, it is not truth, it is tactic used by developer (i worked at developer company before), developer book all the 411sf (corner) units itself & then re-open for sales step by step at better (higher) price. Due to this factor, I decided not to buy any unit because generally the propery is overpriced, for eg, 411sf sell at RM290k & above (after Rm20k rebate), which is RM705 psf !

    Base on my anaylsis, the sales up-to-date is about 45-50% booking because more & more units will be opened for sales, for curious buyers, feel free go to check by yourself (if not believe what I said) :-)

    For commercial title, the TNB bill is 80% expensive than normal residential title, for eg, 21.8sen per unit for residence & about 39.2sen for commercial. Meanwhile, the rates for water bill, MPSP cukai pintu also higher, all buyers be prepared expensive bill per month.

Since there are so many complaints of overcharged and everyday got buyer cancel booking, so based on what reason the developer wanna raise the price?

    Tambun Indah, DNP etc like to increase the price from time to time, of course this will be good news to early buyers who will feel their property appreciates but bad for potential buyers. Increasing the selling price 10k but at the same time giving 10k more rebate to maintain the original price is good for both existing and potential buyers actually. (but I don’t mean that this project should sell at this price). This is a strategy to push serious buyers to buy immediately as it gives an impression that the price might keep on increasing.

    I think buyers can choose the original price as purchase price in the S&P, then after the rebate they can pay less cash as the initial 10% down payment, am I right? For example if purchase price in S&P 300k, and if bank can give loan 90% which is 270k, buyer should pay 30k from their pocket. But if there is 30k rebate, then buyer doesn’t need to pay the 30k to developer (0% down?). This is good for investors.

    If your budget is around 400K, you still can afford bigger built up condo (eg:Airmas)which is RM400psf for 900sq. There are still plenty of choice out there and you don’t have to force yourself to buy this suite. It is still not the time yet where local ppl are forced to buy such a very small & overpriced house (411sf).

    we are offered one unit of LMC but we have to fork out RM20k for a car park. that is a lot for us especially we are from low income community.
    just because some of us are illiterate, we only follow what they want us to do.
    if we were to go to lawyers, i dont think we can afford to pay for their legal service.
    the place may be squatters to others but it is home to us. it has given us shelter for over the decades! inherited since my grands.
    all i hope is the LMC unit offered to us is not delayed the project and the RM20k is waived.

    there is some different from what i got from the sales person in their office….sales person said that LMC will not be offered to squatters and told me all squatters agreed to accept the offer (in cash) from them which i don’t really believe because i don’t think with the amount paid, squatters able to get a house in penang island anymore. for what i understand from my fren’s case, please accept the offer from developer because the land owner already sold the land to developer. why i said so because from legal term, they will pay u an amount after they value your house based on market price (always lower price) which i don’t think u can get a house with the amout paid in penang now. to get the amount from developer, u have to show the record of ur “quit land” (cukai tanah), else u will get 5k only for u to move out from ur house. just an advice as to my fren’s case recently. i’m nobody, no offence to anyone.

    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.

    Mr Tan,

    You have a point, but I think we should respect those who bought at the SUPER INFLATED price…

    Wah! Haha, this price doesn’t shock me, as it is from Tambun Indah (this kind of price is normal on the properties from IJM, Mah Sing, BSG, E&O, Ivory, etc.)

  153. Ah Dog
    June 30th, 2012 at 17:05 | #153

    The Wave @ Time Square at RM600psf++, so, this one consider cheap already (haha, a bit sour) Question: Why Tambun Indah’s price always so high? Like Carrissa Villa 3ST terrace can hit RM600k, all their condo at mainland almost at RM300k onwards range….

    What a retarded and idiotic statement. Is it ok for me to squat on your land and tell the whole world that I am being bullied when you want to demolish it. In that case, lets go and set up squatters on your land . The more the better.

    yes, you can. Please apply multiple bank and compare the rate and other conditions.
    No implications from the bank negara. Just dont sign multiple Letter of Offer from different banks.

    You just freaking bought the SUITES, not the CONDO as you thought.

    Suites are typically smaller units less than 600 sq ft. They are called studios rather than 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom condos.

    @JOSE
    To me it seems like u r actually the “victim” who bought a suites and thought that it was a condo. I don’t think buyers of the suites don’t know what are they buying, and everyone already know the size.

    Agree with you. Those that is looking for property, of coz sure will check all the information lar.
    Even title also is different. Hehehehe….

    If he really make such mistake, then its really no hope liau lor….paying RM400K expecting condo but end up in suite….

    July 5th, 2012 at 18:15 | #166

    I GOT THE LAST LAUGH BECAUSE I WAS NOT DUMB ENOUGH TO BUY OVER PRICED STRAITS GARDEN SUITES.

    PENANG ISLAND IS NOT HONG KONG. WE DON’T HAVE TO LIVE IN SMALL CAGES LIKE THE STRAITS GARDEN SUITES. TO MAKE YOUR DAY, THE TITLE IS COMMERCIAL WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO PAY EXPENSIVE WATER AND ELECTRICITY.

    Don’t say all these stupided and sicked words la, this show you’re not ready to live in highly challenging and ‘commercialized’ era. Probably you should throw all these words to those richers that have plenty of cash, bought many LMC units, and rent them out, while real human struggle for a place to live.

    @Ah Dog
    So you are in the blaming games and revenge mindset izit?

    If those rich that already distorted the market forces due to their speculation, and in return now you want to revenge by showing off that you could afford a RM400K unit for animals by giving sarcastic comments….

    Please imagine those penangites that are struggling daily just to afford a place to stay.

    I cannot help not to comment because of your insulting and sarcastic remarks here.
    We do not need more ppl like that in Penang society..

    July 16th, 2012 at 23:24 | #182

    @hamid
    Haha, thanks for your overwhelmed comments. But this project just simply not really overwhelmed as it is too small for it’s price tag.

  183. Ah Dog
    July 16th, 2012 at 23:34 | #183

    @lost
    Yes, it will be higher, like electricity, depend on your usage, roughly 20% extra if normal usage. But, it is matter the most (since this is already well known that you need to pay extra)? Probably you should ask if this ‘commercial’ title condo in one day, turn into service apartment or home stay that ppl move in and out everyday like hotel, and partying at night, can you stop them? (like the recent issue on one of the condo become home stay, and some residences complain to the JMB) Since it is commercial, then you can utilize it for commercial purpose?

    no good. Don’t take this package. can get directly BLR-2.45 for entire tenant.

  187. Wannabuy
    July 19th, 2012 at 17:24 | #187

    I canceled my unit and obtained my full refund already. I canceled it because :-

    1. The renovation is not to my expectation and I am not happy when they said that even the bigger unit showroom, we don’t get the mirror panel on the wall.
    2. I choose a better property to buy ( a landed property) and hence I let it go.
    3. After visiting the STAR PROPERTY FAIR in Penang, there are tonnes of condos and similar choices to choose from and as a investor, I rather go for landed property.

    Anyone actually don’t get their full refund ? I am also quite dislike their salesperson techniques who said that we need 3 rejections letter to cancel our booking. finally, I got mine back.

    July 19th, 2012 at 21:54 | #191

    During this very uncertain time frame, better go for subsales market, buy for own living or can rent out for immediate return.

  192. Paranormal
    July 19th, 2012 at 21:57 | #192

    If you spent ~RM600k for this project, better drop it (by getting 3 rejection letters from bank, just say ‘reject me and I apply for another higher loan from you too’), and get one unit from Sandiland. It is better than this one for sure, only RM485psf, overall worth than this one. What do you think?

  193. Wannabuy
    July 20th, 2012 at 07:56 | #193

    @ProspectBuyer
    Yeah, I got my full refund with one rejection letter.
