    Very few choices so far or maybe already sold out all the unit. Current project will be the inner piece of land and not at the seaside area. I am not really attracted by these project so far bcos its quite far away from seaside.

    Sorry that I don’t have any official information from Ivory. But the layout and design looks like a hotel to me. Just guessing, may be not.

    (definitely not a LMC) :)

    i think not a good buy/investment, too expensive already, later future they reclaim infront then no more view.

    Ivory not serious to vow customer because they figure will sell like hot cake.
    Sales gallery don’t have model of the world city and no catalog to take away.
    Just some pictures print using cheap ink jet printers.

    All sold out except for a few 1300sf units.
    According to my calculation, roughly RM650+ psf.

  16. Ho
    February 5th, 2013 at 17:21 | #16

    only 1300sf have 2 car park.
    Other units not allowed to buy 2nd car park!
    Ridiculous.

  17. MM
    February 5th, 2013 at 17:37 | #17

    the 1320 sf is about RM900K+, it ranges from 680 – 730 psf… very high

  18. Bryan
    February 5th, 2013 at 17:37 | #18

    I guess later on they will be open booking for 2nd car park. Selling car park is actually make more profit then selling condo. Simple structure but almost same RM psf with condo/ studio.

    February 5th, 2013 at 17:38 | #19

    @test
    The Light is cheaper, count in detail.
    Your example you provided is a finished project, with 3 car parks and air con units work around RM10k.

    The Light more central in Penang, Mutiara is more towards the south of Penang (although near factory).

    Pls think twice before pay any deposit as there is no any physical model, brochure and sufficient explanation from developer. Do you want to buy such project? Furthermore, the price is really expensive….! (Unless you are super rich)

    I rather to choose IJM, the Light project or Mahsing, Southbay (landed).

    Only 1 car park for certain unit. Where do you want to park your 2nd car?

  22. PG Guy
    February 5th, 2013 at 22:47 | #22

    How come so many IJM and Mah Sing buyers here to promote their property? Must be difficult to get the price they ask. Both PWC, IJM The Light and Southbay are overpriced if you asked me.

Used sea front as the selling point but this residence 100% no sea view only road view?????so funny…Mahsing 600 per sf, Ijm 600 per sf, pwc 700 per sf…invester definitely won’t think about this residence as too many better choice in Penang.

    Building plan not approved yet… But they need your money to pay to State government, stage payment for the land purchase. If things go wrong, you can say bye bye to you 10% down payment.

    Hmm. Raymond is right. The risk is on buyer. Even thwarted development may change the plan and ask for piece increase or smaller size in last min. And buyer has no say. I heard it happen before for ivory project. Pls correct me if I’m wrong.

    Year of water snake is good for property launches. More than $6b worth of property planned for launching this year. Every developers is putting up the sweetest deal to get sales. Investor clubs continue to use their cards to push up the property price.

    Bank Negara did nothing to moderate the situation. Government said our debt to GDP at 53% is still lower than Europe.

    The fishiest of all is buyers have to pay the downpayment and sign the S&P within two weeks but stamp it 1 year later. You don’t do that if you are confident that the buyers will stick with you.

    That would depend on how the buildings are constructed … I am current staying in Putra Place Block 1, and as soon as I close my main door, there is zero noise no matter how heavy the traffic is ….since all my windows and balcony are facing the pool …..But I do agree that if you have windows facing the road, then it will be extremely noisy ….

    Some of us who do not intend to buy pwc should walk in to the office at different timing and pretend to look see look see. After a while if the sales staff tries to sell or explain, tell them sarcastically how bad their proj or unethical their tactic is so that they feel humiliated. What a way to make ppl wait like a dog from 9 to 5 last weekend during launching. After a few rounds of humiliation they will learn to respect human beings.

    If the sales are really that good, you will see many people in and out their sales office everyday. Something really wrong if only a few look see. Of course season investors would not care that much to meet the sales person often.

    JackPg :
    Some of us who do not intend to buy pwc should walk in to the office at different timing and pretend to look see look see. After a while if the sales staff tries to sell or explain, tell them sarcastically how bad their proj or unethical their tactic is so that they feel humiliated. What a way to make ppl wait like a dog from 9 to 5 last weekend during launching. After a few rounds of humiliation they will learn to respect human beings.

    U all speculator has no room for ppl to respect la unless u carry 10 mil cash n throw infront of them to lick ur 10 fingers also can

    With NO direct fronting to promenade & seafront like QuaySide & The Light, I don’t see the value of Phase 1A… I am sure Gold Coast would have better value if it is not leasehold. Anyway good luck to all the purchasers. Happy CNY.

    Because they thought people will prefer 1-2 bedrooms units for investment. That’s why majority of the units are with these sizes. They don’t know most people prefer “limited editions” for their PWC.

    Dijaya has been very successful with the small units in KL and PJ, their tropics suites at tropicana mall rewarded earlier investors with 150% transacted gain and their recent launch 3 mths ago at Tropicana Gardens are sold out within a day at >850psf.

    @topenang
    You are the one “ki siao”, how many FTZ employees are going to rent ?
    Do you own any property and rented out ? If you are renting @1200,
    what amount will you get after deducting the maintenance fee ? Do you
    know how much is the monthly repayment for the loan ?
    I know a number of people earning 7k to 9k monthly and they rent a
    condo to share the rooms among themselves. The number of people from
    outstation also limited as most of them will be buying their own after 1 or
    2 yrs. working here.

    1) How many going to rent ? – you go to work in property company to find out
    2) Rental vs property price ? you must consider 4-8 years from now . Based on 455sf @ RM340K 90% loan, your installment RM1540.00 x 30 years. What would be the market price after 4 years ? say about RM 420K. Then the rental should be around 3.5-4.5% i.e RM1200-1550. What will be market price after 8 years ? RM 550K ….what would be the rental then ? you calculate your self la…..
    3) my own property – i bought a condo in 2008 at RM 380K installment RM2000. and now the rental is RM2500-2800….property price is RM 700K
    4) no of ppl from outstaion – the 455 sf only 66 units.
    Ah Kong Ah Kong…….please come out from your own small BOX. no heart feeling ok

    Cannot count this way. You automatically expect tenant to pay you 5% of “market price” as rent?

    I agreed studio is not yet proven in Penang ( KL popular now ) but i think is going to be the trend in future. As property prices and rental go up, ppl feel expensive to rent the whole unit. Therefore, they have no choice but to share it out. However, if given a choice , they will go for studio for same amount and need not to share to so many ppl.

    From the info i got, this year should see a lot new development with studio….

    currently i have many customers ( senior Exe/Engineers & Managers ) mainly from Ipoh, Selangor and Alor Setar. they rent at villa emas at RM1200-1400 but they stay alone there without sharing because their company is paying for it.

    Those expat i know have RM4000-5000 as renting allowances, they stay at platino and baystar.

    @topenang
    So you are willing to rent out your studio at RM200-300 per month? This is the market demand. Are you willing to fulfill the demand?

    I agreed there are these group of ppl just willing to pay RM200-300 per person. Mostly junior staff and many work in Qbay mall & FTZ area as well. But you need to squeeze 5-6 ppl in the house.

    Again, this figure is 2013 figure. I am sure villa emas rental will go up as well in 4 years time. By that time, the sardin renting systems cost will go up as well.

    I also heard about company renting apartment for their outstation staffs that stay here for short term, but not many, especially for one person only. Typically they do that if there are 2-3 outstation staffs. Anyway, i am not saying 455 sft is difficult to find tenant, the only question I have is how big is the market with your rental expectation?

    First , I am not the 455sf buyer. I wanted to get it but sold out. Therefore i am not here to promote it

    I still opine that 455sf studio is easy to rent out. There are only 66 units here and maybe 50% of them are buying for other reasons and not for rental. So i don’t see any difficulties in getting 30-40 tenants from FTZ / Qbay or even those executive from prai area.

    455sf reminds me of the launch during light collection 2 in end 2010, where people queue few nights to grab the studios 517sf, which have limited units at 750psf at that time. The people wanted access to the light collection at lowest entry cost ie <400k. Similarly there is only 58 units studio in Bay Residence, and many wanted to access to this development at lowest entry although Psf is not low.

    Investors only want to make money. I don’t think they is any buying for own stay. Remember Block A are mostly bought by developer staffs. Of course studio is easy to rent out if the rent right. But definitely cannot be more than 1k.

    Studio at collection II is part of The Light Collection. Studio at Bay Residence is in Phase 1A itself, I don’t see how it can be tied to PWC.

    Regarding return potential of studios in Penang… we should wait and see, as more will be built later on. There will be plenty of studios in the future, if there’s demand for them. The design will be more creative & attractive, and the earlier launched ones will be kind of “outdated”.

    We will see in few years time how would the studio performs in the rental market especially in prime area. Dont know how is st quay studio performs so far ?

    Definitely earlier launched condo will look outdated compared to new launch condo. This is normal.

    I bought a studio, but i have to say all new house or apartment will have problem to rent out. Penang Island have less then 0.75 Million population, but houses supply is like Singapore (5 Million) and HK (7 Million). Sure will sate vacant one. Buy for rent in Penang, forget it. I plan to use it as a station for my Mainland House is the Island. When Penang brigde vey jam, i can any time turn out fron the flyover and back to me PWC home and take a bath and nap, before back to Midland.
    Rent out, never be my consideration. If really have, will be a bonus for me.

    @Ssboy, I see many bought studios for own use, me too.

    Now that block D 615sf is about 830psf, I wonder how they will price the 60 units of 455sf studios at upcoming blok E…

    Besides the price factor, VB is surrouded by the main access road to QB malls.
    You can imagine more traffic when the more commercial unit from VB is coming.

    what so special with your 455sqf studio without sea view? can easily get a lot of the nearby 700sqf N-Park with seaview and cheaper price.

    On and off we heard got people jump from N-park. True not?

    Last time Ideal Regency got people jump just right after OC. Recently Bayswater got people jump off also…so what? But I agree when the project has higher density, it is much more difficult to control the access/security, and also higher chance got suicide case based on statistical probability. What is the density for this project? 1000+? By the way, last time N-Park also was an iconic seafront project by a “star” developer..Penangites should still remember the history.. hee hee hee…

    You are working extremely hard, persuading and in the course of persuasion
    all your personal ideas are in the form of assumptions, forecasting,comparing
    others when yourself are not even sure.

    Want to convince people to buy for investment but the current selling price is
    4 years ahead of market price. You call that a good investment ???

    I just joined in this forum last week as CNY is too free. We welcome you to join in this forum as well.

    You said the current price at PWC is 4 years ahead or market price ? Sure bo ? again, we will only know 4 years later.

    Afterall, investment is putting money into something with the hope ( assumption & prediction ) of gain either for short term or long term. Who knows what is the future ? everyone just predicts as well.

    If you know, then please share lo…….afterall, this is a forum to share your personal ideas. take it or leave it.

  171. ks_rev
    February 16th, 2013 at 21:52 | #171

    i just been there….block C & D left mostly Type B 615sqft (500k++ after 5% rebate), these 615sqft units all are on block D no.5 & 6, block C no.9 & 10.

    Skeptical why so many of these 615sqft are left un-sold, since the sales person said can see Pulau Jerejak view (i seriously doubt that loh…).

    then still got 1 or 2 units of 1000sqft…..there rest all booked…..!!

    let’s see after a while they got release more units, haha…..(usual tactics)

  173. islander
    February 16th, 2013 at 22:46 | #173

    615sf facing west are from block A, some taken by internal staff and there is 3% + 5% discount.
    for block C D,
    1st local ppl still prefer medium size unit, 872, 1000…. eventhough ave. price 750psf.
    2nd price factor, 615sf sell at ave. 850psf.
    anyone have other opinion?
    I booked 615sf because of budget concern as well.

    February 16th, 2013 at 23:15 | #174

    615sqft for 500k vs 872 sqft for 600k. Most investor prefer 872 sqft as it is only 100k higher but u get extra 150 sqft.

    yes actually victoria bay will have better seaview/p.jerejak view, although some ppl might not like a busy road just infront of it, noise & dust issue.

    But i’m not sure victoria bay will have smaller unit? If yes also the price tag will be higher or same as 500-600+k, assuming they selling for rm900-1000psf!

    Let me tell you all, those D Block & C Block, facing south unit with 615 sf.

    You all better buy it now faster.
    Buy it fast before it all sold.
    It will be consider have good sea seaview (at least for another 2 years) then after the next phase parcel 1B block the view, it will still consider have partial seaview.
    Some more it facing south and facing a more quiet internal road.
    Some more it will face Parcel 1B swimming pool, a nice one.

    I have bought 2 last week at Block D, Unit 5/6.

    Yes, look at thier plan, you will see Block C/D unit D5/6, C9/10, can see very nice seaview, in future, at least it will still have partial seaview.
    Who know, those Parcel 1B (2nd phase) build lower, or lower design or cancel off, then will be very good.

    looks like u r gambling big, gambling the possibility that phase 1B will be cancelled, or build lower building. i am buying that for investment, do u think the subsale buyer will still buy your unit for partial short term seaview, when they already the phase 1B piling construction oredi blocking the seaview?

    think seriously, if the unit is so good it wont wait until yesterday and still got a lot!

    I am not gambling la, i have said it will be a bonus if it did block, even if it block and leave partial seaview, i will still facing a quiet inner road (between 1A and 1B) and future wuill have a nice 1B’s swiming pool and garden view. It will still the best facing for 615 sf unit.

    15 and above, at least need to be higher then Phase 1B podium car park. Then only in future you have partial seaview. Trust me, this will be you selling point in future. (even with partial seaview)

  186. Happy New Year
    February 17th, 2013 at 11:14 | #186

    Nope. need to be 20 floor and above. you need to consider the angle needed to see thru future Parcel 1B and another seafront project. I think if you buy 20 floor and above, you will have partial seaview. I think a bit complicated here. Sorry about that. Hard to explain here.

  187. John
    February 17th, 2013 at 11:24 | #187

    looking at the floor plan, no balcony for 615, so just look through the window? I’m not sure if the partial seaview still the selling point.

    The thing I cannot stand is a person who cannot make up his or her own mind…. Just do your own research…..visit the site…. talk to some agents and if you really like it and it suits your budget then just buy……..do not worry……only speculators would be so unsure like you…. unsure about making $$$$…..

    @Penang Homes

    Thanks for your advice. Forgive me for being so indecisive.
    This is one of the many forums I do the research on. The thing is I can’t go to the site or Penang isaland since I am so tied up in my business in another country. I am one of those “remote control” investors (a term used by others in another forum). Years ago, I simply purchased a condo without even setting foot on the island and its subsale value nearly double today. In that forum, more than 60% of the investors’ views were positive on that piece of property. One investor even predicted that the subsale value would go up to 100% and it becomes the reality today.
    P/s Please don’t ask me about the name of the other property. You just have to take my words for it. Sorry…

    I’m only interested in 2 facing, 1st east and 2nd south. not so into the seaview cos even there is, it won’t be long. since the east is no longer available, option now is the 615 south facing block B or black C. Have to make decision today.

    Thanks, for clarity…block a and b, 3+5% discount, and block c and d, only 5% discount…however in addition, the list price of block c and d is about 4% higher than block a and b….hence if you buy a and b (if units available), you are buying 7% lower than block c and d…
