    Seems like the rate is similar to Affin and RHB and PBB. But you mentioned can apply for lower rate, means MBB can give <4.4%?

    Ambank can offer less than 4.4%

    I’m one of the eligible buyer, as far as I’m concerned, there’s only 2 packages which is the basic (White) and *upgraded (Orange):

    Top Pic: https://www.dropbox.com/s/au95lrf5nz2noam/Top%20Sharpen.jpg?dl=0
    Bottom Pic: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dw6agnfwgtli9n4/Bottom%20Sharpen.jpg?dl=0

    (*Free S&P fee and additional side-by-side carpark for the upgraded package. Free IKEA furnitures with 3 different themes to choose during which will be provided when the house is under construction after signing S&P.)

    So far I try to opt for the 400k which is the upgraded package as per advise by my agent Ms.Jayne whom is quite helpful but unfortunately there is very little black & white. Been having problem when I apply for loan here in KL.

    I applied loan of 360k from PB, MBSB, AFFIN, RHB, Maybank. So far AFFIN is the best with 4.4% interest while the rest is quite close with 4.56% max.

    TBH, I don’t think the upgraded package is that good but it certainly makes it easier for working ppl like myself and not entirely too far fetched. However I definitely need additional carpark and 50k is ridiculous for a carpark. The 100k does not exactly justify the upgraded benefits IMHO and AG probably reap about 40k of profit from there.

    I’m going to check out with my relatives on renovation cost to see if it justify to get the upgraded packages when I return to PG next few weeks. Got Whatsapp group please include me, I will let answer as much of your question as I can to clarify the ‘truth’. Hopefully clear up my own confusion as well.

    July 12th, 2015 at 11:25 | #11

    Oh btw… forgot to mentioned, I tentatively apply for the 400k upgraded package for loan purposes. If cannot get the loan, it is still good to know my credit stands and then I can easily change to lower 260k loan. I got a few pictures on the upgraded IKEA furniture but I’m not sharing because I don’t see the relevance since they mention the pictures are “Subject for changes”. Meaning what we see not necessary what we get.

    Overall i felt that the offer of the project is lucrative base on the current market condition. My only concern is the lift available for this project. We have over 900 units affordable house and only 6 lifts available with 42 floors. Average condo is around 400-500 units with 4 – 6 lifts available. Hope the developer can take note of this.

    Btw, today I had received the 2nd letter From Aspen to submit the Booking form (Sales Proforma), tomorrow I will walk in to aspen and submit the form with related documents. Then after the S&P date is confirmed, will need to prepare bank draft and rdy for balloting..

    Not sure about the ballot process, but I can be very sure that Aspen wont allow you to ballot if you dont have the d/p ready when you pay them a visit. So far I heard only one chance to ballot. If you draw and get the unit you dont like also have to accept. I wouldnt want to risk my 10% d/p like this.

    You have to submit the banker’s cheque and register at the counter before you are allow to
    enter the balloting room.Only one chance to ballot. If you choose the upgraded package ,high chances can get the block C. After balloting they will include your unit number for you to sign the S&P.

    Maybe its the SOP set by the government for fair,accountable and clean policy.
    But if you are choosing the upgraded package, you stand a good chance to get a better unit.

    @Ks
    from the map you can be sure that Block B facing north and Block C facing Northeast are all sea view. Whereas Block B facing South and Block C facing Southwest its view maybe block by Block A

  57. Mrme
    July 22nd, 2015 at 12:20 | #57

    Its not really clear. Another document shows block c facing north and south while b facing north east and south east.
    Makes it hard to imagine where the view is. But either way, if you get high floor, chances are you will get some seaview. Either gurney, St quay or tg bungah.

    Any idea what’s the ceiling height for the units?

  58. Lol

    People are always selfish so don’t only scold developer for being greedy. You are also not any better. When the developer was going to give 5 times ballot to those paying higher price, people make noise say not fair and some even want to complain to State. Now when developer said can only ballot 1 time, they also get scolding say not fair. So end of the day, everyone just selfish and greedy. Wants the best for themselves. Therefore don’t call others greedy before looking at yourself. If unhappy, don’t buy. Go buy something else. People always say now buyers market. So go try your luck get a good unit in secondary market now. See what you get!

    I totally agree. In this real world, when we buyers pay higher price, why can’t we get better things like more balloting etc. Even you buy car, you pay much more for imported car vs local car. But because of some people who complain, developer decided to remove the 5 ballot chances. If you like to get 5 ballots, then pay more lar. Why need to make so much noise till we lose our chance. They think life is fair just because state come out with this affordable housing is it?? Terrible mentality. It’s as if everyone including state and developer owe them a living.

    Agree with you. Same happen like if you are purchasing a normal non affordable unit. U pay higher price to get a better view or floor. Same should apply for those upgrading packages that we should giving the chance to ballot at least 3 times to choose our desire unit

    All the reasons developer playing so many tricks are just wanna max their profit such as expensive 2nd car park, renovation package etc. Many richer buyers have been forgot the meaning of “affordable”. Affordable houses are actually for who really need and controlled by government. All the qualified buyers should have equal change to get their own unit, fair, simple and clean.

    Some said can pay more 100k to get better unit and more change to ballot, maybe developer give you more balloting or what. This is unfair to other buyers who really can’t afford more 50k or 100k because this really out of their budget, for some people who are richer please don’t apply affordable house, can buy other projects instead.

    Affordable house need controlled by government strictly, otherwise will ruin by greedy developers, buyers and investors, we understand some can pay more 100k to get better benefits, but if same thing happen to you, what about other richer than you pay more, let said 200k. To get priority.

    We have know how to distinguish what is right and what is wrong, integrity and honest are gone nowadays, and we now only lead by greedy and delusion.

    How true! Some “people” talk as if they are entitled to priorities and benefits just because they can afford the extra RM100k. Then go about smashing those RM299k buyers asking them to just reject the offer lah, choose other projects lor, or get one in the secondary market and shut us from complaining.

    Sad, so called affordable projects. Perumahan should really do something, but then again as I have read before and very sure they can’t do anything also because this is on a willing-buy willing-sell concept. In other words, take it or leave it. This wave of affordable home concept is doomed for failure as I can see it. So many loopholes by the private developer to maximize profit like for example one carpark at RM50k (seriously??).

    All thanks to those complain say we pay $100k more than them should not be given more chances because its not fair. Why not fair? If they want more chances, pay more like us. People like them only think they deserve everything to be given to them on a platter. They think its their entitlement!

    Aiyoyo… Since you talk about fairness, let’s talk about this topic. Just because this is affordable house, then must be fair in everything ah? Then what is fair to those who pay $100k more if they don’t get extra. Fairness to you but in the expense of others. Then its UNFAIR. You are just looking at your own selfish reason. If you go out and eat in a restaurant, does it mean you get the same type of food as someone else who is paying extra? Fair boh? If you say until we like how rich can go buy other property, then why not you say if you don’t like how this developer does things, YOU go buy other affordable home. Why you still want to choose this developer since you don’t like???

    You asked if someone else get such priority if they pay more, then I don’t mind coz I can only blame myself for not earning enough to be able to afford that. That has always been the way this world works. Don’t tell me you don’t know.

    Even Singapore which has always been known to be fair and “clean” price those higher floor and better facing more expensive. Their governement and people also never complain like you all here. You pay more for better things. You think everyone owes you just because you cannot afford?!

    You said “We have know how to distinguish what is right and what is wrong, integrity and honest are gone nowadays, and we now only lead by greedy and delusion.” You said it right but sadly you don’t know that you are referring to yourself.

    Go work harder, earn more money instead of just complaining to government to get more and more. Lastly, you so clever talk about fairness… Try asking your boss for a raise to equal the salary of the top producer of your company, then come here to report on whether you succeeded in fighting for “fairness & equality” in this world. With this I rest my case.

Complain so much but still want to buy is like slapping yourself in the face.

    Pls go do more research on “Penang affordable homes”. Zero subsidiary. Private land. Construction cost. Labour shortage. Development guideline, premiums and deposits. New strata title act. New housing development act. Cos unlike PR1MA, Federal pay most of it.

    After you really do research on the above then i you will thank them. The headaches dealing with government, headaches dealing with banks, headaches dealing with contractors, headaches dealing with the “tai lous” at the jurisdiction, the monies paid up front in millions … I think better build luxurious condo than affordable home cause don’t have to deal with headaches from complaining customers.

    Wow, suddenly so many new comments under new user id’s bashing us.

    You know what is affordable and fair? These mean, regardless of whether basic or upgrade, everyone should get a fair chance during balloting. You think so simple ah as rejecting this offer and choose others? I waited for so many years only get a shot at owning my first ever home. Ask me reject now and now not sure want to wait how long again then only can afford to get a home for my family and aged parents.

    Now we have some people asking us to “Go work harder, earn more money instead of just complaining to government to get more and more.” You probably come from a rich family or are already financially well-off, but let me tell you this. I come from a family where total annual household income of my parents never exceeded RM50k (yes you saw that right). I grew up and studied so hard and graduated with a decent degree, and when I entered a workforce my salary was just a mere <RM3k after deductions. After a few years the amount got raised, albeit by a small sum. I also worked part time giving tuition. Still what are those after all the ever rising costs/expenses?

    Fairness in this sense is being fair to all buyers, not favoring certain groups who can afford an extra 10k. These projects are all under the jurisdiction of the Penang state gomen, and they should have done better to regulate all these.

    "Complain so much but still want to buy is like slapping yourself in the face." Haha maybe if you were in my shoes you will understand the hardships I've gone through and how hard I've worked all these years and my dream to provide for my family despite my not so high income.

    Always know how to compare to Singapore etc. We are in Penang Malaysia and not Singapore lah pls.

    I can see most your comments are pointless just merely wanna shoot back. This is controlled projects, people complain not because they want to make trouble to developer but just want to make sure the developer follow all the guidelines and make sure we all local, low income, medium income family also can have our own house. Not only this projects have the the problems but many other affordable projects if we read newspapers recently. Affordable houses and also Low medium cost are not means for richer, those projects are for who really need. Ya lastly, I am not the projects potential buyer.

    you got some points here. We also know Developers also have their own problems.

    Many developers built LMC, affordable houses not because they have compassion and pity the poorer. They build because they force to do it due to the government policy. Developers not the charity society and just look at money. Malaysia here like HK, open and free market, so, if not controlled and government interruption, you all willing to see our housing prices like HK in the future?

    If any developers staff here and see this post. Here I am not aimed to any developers and investors. But for investors, please not ruin the LMC and affordable projects. For developers, I know profits always priority and cant merely blame developer, this is because Malaysia here is free market. But some time practice the social responsibility always very encourages, help the needy, closer the gap between rich and poor, you will gain more trust from people.

    Some rich kid(s) talk as if buying a home is like buying clothes.

    When I signed up with erumah many many years back I was hoping that the price of these homes would be affordable, and the allocation and balloting etc would be FAIR. Yes human kind is greedy and selfish, but unfortunately not all have integrity. So, private developers, just because they have to deal with so many headaches in building these homes, they are free to come up with such favoritism? If it’s always about profit, why sign up to provide Affordable Home in the first place? This is about helping the low/mid income earners to own a home, which is a basic necessity in life. The state gomen did a great job with all these upcoming projects, but to be honest the prices are still a bit above our affordability.

    Favoring those who can afford the extra 100k is NOT fair, yet we basic users are refrained from voicing this because some rich/financially well-off kids are able to afford the upgrade. If you all can afford to pay that extra sum, why still register for this affordable scheme? Why not just quit and buy other private properties and so allow many deserving middle income earners like us to own their home, in a fair and just manner?

    Just know how to shoot and ask us to work harder lah. How do you know if I don’t work hard enough to provide for my family? And always know how to compare with Singapore govt. Typical. Why not compare to US where the car price is super cheap? Pls lah ok, this is Penang land, not Singapore or US.

    Not siding anyone here. Your comments keep pointing at “rich kids”. You are making assumptions on this. I’m sure some of the readers in this forum is older than your father.

    RM1,800 instalment is the benchmark for a RM300k – RM400k property. This should be about 50% – 60% of your monthly income. If not, please don’t complain the property is not affordable. It’s just you are not working hard enough and spending too much time on this forum instead on working for more income. Go switch category to RM200k affordable home or LMC or apply for affordable home in Batu Kawan. RM240k only gets you 1,000 sf.

    lim kopi yesterday with some friends. kopi tiam only NOT starbucks so I not rich kid ok. ask friends to debate whether 50k justifiable for carpark at freehold property. mixed opinions from frnds. but conclusion is, in long run sure worth it. here’s the calculative outcome.

    your car, depreciative value. buy myvi 50k, after 10 years value less than 10k. if you stay at your property for 30 years you will likely to change car 3 times ie. a loss of more than 120k due to depreciation.

    average parking cost on MPPP box rm0.80 per hour. if park outside for 8 hours everyday = rm6.40 daily = rm192 per month. an average person will park his/her car at home for more than 12 hours a day, indoor and shaded somemore. so if use shopping mall calculation even more expensive. carpark rm50k divide 360 (30 years like your property loan) = rm138 per month. ie. cheaper than parking outside at mppp box. on top of that, your carpark will increase your value of your property cos if you imagine everyone kiam siap dunwan buy extra carpark there will be 1k over cars parking at roadside. that time your property bo value time you don’t blame others but yourself cause short-sighted.

    Lol so detailed in the analysis of the parking. Oh if the carpark is worth it in the long run, so does that mean that if we don’t buy we are kiam siap (and not because we really can’t afford the extra RM50k?) Yes my family has more than a car (two 2nd-hand cars bought at less than RM15k each), but ya lor because of short-sighted people like me who can’t afford the RM50k so we kena bashed when the property gets congested in the future. Lolx at the justification.

    My comment is mainly pointed at rich kids, or similarly, “not-so-rich kids who have drinks at Kopitiam and not Starbucks & also bash other low/mid income earners who can’t really afford the extra RM100k & bash other who voice out the unfair favoritism to buyers of upgraded units”.

    not saying that the price is right but saying that it is justifiable. otherwise banks won’t give loan also right. i’m assuming only this … normal condo can sell carpark cheaper cos the cost is already included into the main property cos the house more expensive? unless subsidised by someone, nobody going to do charity right? normal condo about rm550psf now with 2 cp basic specs. affordable home about rm500psf with 2 cp and upgrade specs. but normal condo absolute price more than rm600k while affordable with upgrade only rm400k. if i can buy normal condo i will buy but 600k is out of my reach now. work harder hope for vp position in company then will upgrade to bigger and better home.

    I have been reading silently past few days. Just want to tell this Penang_kia to cool down and see from others point of view. I see his point but cannot agree. You see… if you cannot afford this price say $400k and do not like the way developer works, why not treat yourself better and make yourself happier by selecting another project. You know there are projects from $200k onwards too. If $200k is a stretch for you, then you can consider LMC. Nobody is looking down on you but somehow from your remarks, you seem to have inferior complex. Never mind what others say.

    Last but not least, I quote Penang_kia comment , “Worse, if I can’t afford the maintenance ma gai? If lifts break down and maintenance are not upkept, we will definitely be blamed again. At least we don’t earn that much in life although already work so hard to provide for my family and siblings, but we have integrity and principles in life and know what is fair and justified.” I strongly advise him to pay maintenance that is due because you are at fault if lifts break down/maintenance are not well kept. Why? Because you as owner is responsible for paying your FAIR share like all owners. This is fair practice. Since you want things so fair and square, then practice what you preach. But if you know you cannot afford, don’t buy that project. Go look at those you can afford. That’s why government got different scheme and price for people to choose according to their affordability. Think carefully before you purchase.

    -don’t give an example by comparing an apple to orange. We all citizen feel the pinch of GST. are you telling us to starve by not consuming or asking us to migrate? Whereby, if you don’t like this project, you can easily reject and choose another one

    Hi Shaun, thanks and appreciate your comment.

    Sorry I just wish to clarify that those sentences that you quote of me were supposed to be independent of each other.

    Worry not. I have integrity, and respect for others (unlike some). I can assure you that once I own my home in the future I will always be a responsible individual, paying what is due including all the maintenance fees. :)

    To the other commenter, apparently we as buyers do not have whatsoever right to voice out the favoritism (hence the term “complain”) to 399k buyers. Can she kindly point out if anything about starving or migrating was ever mentioned?

    Oh I see, cannot complain and compare! Please kindly also advise the others who made reference to Singapore and price of overseas cars which are half of Msian car prices, not to make apple to orange comparisons oops…

And worry not, as a responsible individual of integrity you can have my word that I will pay the maintenance fees which is due.

    Will assess again other options I have before deciding for the future of my family.

    @penang_kia
    Welcome back!!!

    paiseh was away for a wake. people die too no matter how rich or sarcastic they are. the link to the image below will explain “life” to you. nothing unfortunately is fair. everyone have the rights to their own opinion. this is the internet. as long as it is not seditious it is ok. :)

    https:// larryfarlow.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/equality-vs-justice. jpg (pls. remove the “spaces” after “https://” and before “.jpg”)

    i can’t say what is right? cause sometimes i want justice while other times i may want equality. but all i “think” (opinion nia ok) is that providing affordable home is like providing justice to the people. different people’s level of justice is different. in a sense, even after all the “help” given by others, people that are less able will always feel they are left out or there is no justice for them. in a sense, those more capable will have to give up more for the less capable. the more capable will not feel equality and thus the debate continues …

    August 3rd, 2015 at 14:27 | #123

    Actually from the argument above, one thing we should make sense that affordable house scheme is strictly controlled by state government. Developer should obey the law/ term& condition imposed by government. This is different to free market where buyer can pay more to get better unit. Thus, I can understand why people are making noise as they found some buyers can ballot more because they are paying extra. So, if government really allow for Developer to give more ballot chances to buyers, they will not suddenly stop this practice already.

    State will open units to public soon if acceptance from eligible applicants is slow. Better grab before the investors snap it up. Applicants can take time to consider the offer previously but now because of this, developer has appealed and will be allow to sell to general public soon.

    No more waiting unless loan approval is the problem.

    hi there…i am goin to ballot in coming few days…may i know how much is the loan agreement and stamp duty since we have to pay on our own…can we select our own lawyer or need to stick to their lawyer?thanks in advance for answering my question

  127. penang_boy
    August 10th, 2015 at 19:14 | #127

    @Adrian

    the loan agreement depends on your loan amount. roughly I will say about 4k. the stamp duty for government is calculated roughly as follow:-

    First RM100K * 1% = RM1,000
    Subsequent RM100,001 – RM500K * 0.7% (if your loan is RM360K, the amount that falls in this category is RM260K) = RM260K * 0.7% = RM1,820
    Lawyer fees roughly RM1K – RM1.5K
    So, from above calculation about RM3.8K – 4.3K

    from my knowledge you can use your own solicitor for loan but for SPA they have a panel of solicitors. I’d recommend using the same solicitor they allocated for you for SPA to do your loan as it will speed up the disbursement process from bank. if own solicitor, may not know the story or process and cause delays which if any late interests is caused, may have to pay. just my two cents thoughts but entirely up to you on loan solicitor.

    relax la. no need F. it’s just a forum. sure got people happy and got people grumble. like me and @penang_kia argue so much in the end also buy. i’m not sure about him la. he so active here.

    @evonne, i understand your arguments. i was also frustrated when they change the packages and i have to resubmit my pre-approval loan. but understand this (pls mai label me as someone from AG as you so conveniently assumed shirley is someone from AG) that they are a business entity. just like normal property prices are revised by ALL developers, they have to revise packages to suit the majority of buyers. not everyone is happy but majority is happy. sometimes change is not cos they want to but becos they have to due to law.

    after taking up some effort to read up on developer guidelines recently, those that haven’t bought a property yet will be facing more frustration as there have been some new laws implemented by ministry of housing. just a feeling there will be more changes coming soon.

    August 18th, 2015 at 11:47 | #149

    Update : called Aspen for clarification on why I still no get my SPA.

    Short story. New law by Federal government Ministry of Housing.

    Long story. Implementation of Strata Title Act by Federal government recently requires all developer to pre-allocate and define the accessory parcel (ie. carpark) to main parcel (ie. unit). The developer have to work out the allocation, surveyor to confirm and submit to the authorities. Good, meaning that within a couple of weeks, those that bought earlier will know their carpark. Bad news, if allocated not favourable carpark make noise also no use di as the allocation is submitted to authorities. :( Have to break leg, get OKU status then can park at OKU carpark for convenience …

    Forget abt buying AH to invest. LMC,LC& AH have to obtaine State Consent when selling only to eligible buyers. You may have buyers who can pay your asking price but disqualified by State cos exceeded income cap etc. you can sell to those within the income cap required by State but banks says sorry Brother lower loan margin or unable to approve!

    For investment, go for mid range or semi luxury property. Just imagine if the Chinese from China like your property! Strike lottery then.

    As far as I am aware of the ballot session for 299k hasn’t commenced.

    Just read about the bad experiences that so many buyers are going through. Aspen keeping on changing the home packages. Giving preferences to 399k buyers. Also coupled with the mindset of some buyers (I don’t want to name them, but you can read this forum and see for yourself their “arguments”) who thought they deserved better privileges for opting for the upgrade package in this Affordable Home Scheme by our Pg Govt.

    And recently there’s also problem with developer delaying the signing of the SPA apparently claiming there is discussion still going on with perumahan, thus further delaying the balloting for 299k eligible buyers. There’s also some stories about Aspen staff giving misleading info to buyers (trying to promote the 399k package).

    Too many issues with this developer… I feel really sorry for the many deserving candidates who are still being kept waiting for so long…

    Did anyone called to check with govt on the newly implementation of strata title act which 2 carpark is compulsory for every unit of house? I did called the perumahan and the person told me no changes on strata title as claimed by ASPEN.
    Aspen kept giving this as a reason for delaying balloting for 299k buyer

    Many did, and yes I also called. No such thing as in 2 carpark for every unit.

    To read that this project is ranked as the 4th most popular projects in Penang? LMAO! Popular because there are too many complaints against Aspen Group.

    Thanks for your reply, penang_kia. I knew that AG also has LMC project with RM73k in Tri Pinnacle. Do you have any idea, is it the LMC share the facilities & also with same entrance with affordable housing?

    Hi JessCK, as far as we were briefed last time by Aspen, LMC won’t have access to the facilities. In fact, I heard the car park entry for LMC and AH is diff too.

    At least that’s what we were told la, but one thing for sure is that I don’t too trust what Aspen say anymore after reading what most eligible buyers (me included) have experienced.
