    Actually there’s not much subsales transaction in Mainland. People only buy to stay. You can’t sell it because no one wants to buy in Mainland.

    there are a lot or many high rise currently & next upcoming around BM area….concern where got so many buyer to purchase those units? Beside, these high rise lowest started price is 300k above…worth to buy? Really a big question mark for me… nowadays the developer buy a piece of land to build hundred above units of skyscraper compare with large piece of land for landed…in the end developer smile with profit in pocket and purchaser suffer with no choice for high price landed but only can opt to buy high rise with also consider too costly or hardly affordable unit….pity for the purchaser…

    @bm concern
    You see the price of landed property all shoot to RM600k in BM. So I think RM300k condo is worth. I think this condo will be RM400k above for 1000sqft. If you want less than RM300/sqft, you need to buy in Simpang Ampat Tambun Royale City.

    Condo is more for younger generation, I would say condo which near to modern life style kind of amenities could succeed. Example: cinema, shopping mall, pubs, F&B. Do we have those in mainland?

    @Spiderman

    You can take a look at Kota Permai Phase 2 new house.
    So far most house kena but is not really a serious issue. Some repaint on the wall already solve the issue. But bear in mind, if crack on high rise condo might be another story.

    *Actually i heard a lot new landed house having the cracking issue. I think they build it too fast and did not wait then paint the wall liao.

    Went to see the show house. Like the design, spacing, layout and spec mat’ls given esp the quality solid Aluminum window and sliding door. Like the location, workmanship and simple pricing and freebies also. BUT, no money liow to buy, so sad nia.
    Also, like the delicious food served also. Only don’t like the insufficient car parking at show house area.
    My impression : sometimes small scale developer like them can do a better job than those intermediate or bigger developers that constantly distribute flyers, have this and that events throughout the year and appear/promo in so many property fairs, shopping malls weekly.

    So far, i think the quality of the houses are good. Which developer built one that is without cracks, please do let me know. E&O built a lot of houses and condos in Pg and with cracks and sinks yet it is selling at 2 million+ landed and they are still aweome developers btw.

    Yes indeed, this could affect their overall reputation in building condo. I wouldn’t deny that I was rather worried at first when I get to know that this is their first condo project.

    I looked up most projs in BM since mid this year, for own stay, I know I m late comer since most projs lauched in 2013/14..1st choice Exo Juru Sentral..my choice size sold out & wife said pollution..2nd Abel…not much option yet still long way to go…3rd this..like the corner unit layout no evening Sun but low floor, area seems nice…Sentosa dun like layout n near main road..Berjaya ok, not much option left…Signature/Prominence/Dutamas/Parklane…area not my like..Mahkota..service apt x baloi..Goodfield….dun feel good bout many big lorries/trucks near main traffic light there always..79 ok la but dun need so big yet more expensive..

    79, Sentosa, Berjaya, Prominence, Dutamas all equally price or more expensive but not using Clay bricks…except Spectrum..haha. I think I m going to sign it on even can’t get unit#7, unless economy go south……on top no need to pay anything now till 80% proj completion.

  66. GT
    September 5th, 2016 at 13:47 | #66

    Great study you did there. I’ve looked up almost all the proj you have mentioned.
    The final two candidates for me were 79 and spectrum, and I end up with spectrum.

    I personally dislike the environment near Auto City and Bukit Minyak.

  67. behck
    September 7th, 2016 at 14:08 | #67

    79 Res overall building design way much better, too bad I dun really need that extra space. Take corner unit for comparison, I like spectrum better + cheaper. Dun know why their progress seem slow compare to spectrum. Spectrum is working on top floor n roof now.

  68. edisongan
    September 7th, 2016 at 14:52 | #68

    @behck
    Dude, you sure your comments were after findings? Haha..

    First, Berjaya condo is bigger and cheaper than Spectrum because I was like you, I chose either 1 of them and in the end I picked Berjaya due to bigger space and cheaper at price. I failed to secure the unit with “free garden” with extra 400sqf at level 5…only 1 week late nia..
    I went to view the showroom of both while both Berjaya and Spectrum were not even started construction..

    2nd, Berjaya is also using red bricks..During its construction period, everyone can see it clearly, mate…

    FYI, I also went to view the 79th but indeed it’s much more expensive..

    As for Sentosa and Prominence, if you went in the same period, which is 2013, they offered almost the same prices lah…Even BM city…I viewed all of them…won’t be big different in RM10K-RM20K…

  69. behck
    September 8th, 2016 at 16:31 | #69

    What I meant cheaper of course at current dev offer price la. Spectrum giving me 2014 price adj inflation+gst+ progressive int, sign spa only at 2017, abort-any-time kind which I think it is a good deal. Good for u if u got early bird price. I only started seeking this year so I understand no way I could get price of 2013/4 unless next year all crash, which unlikely, but u ll nvr know.

  70. GT
    September 9th, 2016 at 09:02 | #70

    By the time I was surveying, Berjaya condo was more expensive than Spectrum. However, the psf of 79 is lower than both Berjaya and Spectrum.

  71. edisongan
    September 9th, 2016 at 09:14 | #71

    @GT
    Dude, are you comparing price/sqf to price/sqf or you were saying overall?

    Do you know that I got Berjaya at RM390K at 1448sqf => RM270/sqf plus a store room around 100sqf at multi-storey carkpark..Of course, 2 free car park as well.

    At level 5, there are 4 units (if not wrongly remember) with extra “garden” extending from balcony at 400sqf for FREE (not charge into maintenance fee as well)

    So, if you were not comparing like this, then nothing to say…Spectrum offers smaller size at almost the same price as Berjaya…

    Now Berjaya only left with few units at high floor I suppose…So more expensive..
    In 2013, I was pretty sure Berjaya was the cheapest and better layout with RED BRICKS WALL

  72. edisongan
    September 9th, 2016 at 09:15 | #72

    not to forget when you do the comparison, the level of your apartment is also a factory, one level higher with RM5K increase…

  73. Apple
    September 9th, 2016 at 12:11 | #73

    I did reserve a unit for Berjaya condo in 2013 and then later in 2014, reserve a unit for Spectrum Residence. Super early bird price even before show house constructed. I remember Spectrum Residence is cheaper than Berjaya condo by psf, both the units were low level floor. However, later I gave up both of them, not buying due to no money lah.

    In 2014, I was surprised why Spectrum Residence pricing can be cheaper than Berjaya condo 2013 pricing after nearly 1 year. I suspect it was due to weak property sales after the famous Oct 2013 Budget announcement various measures curbing speculations.

    I also found out Berjaya condo showhouse Bedroom door position was not the same as the brochure layout to make it look more spacious.
    Overall, I like Spectrum more than Berjaya. Spectrum only available for booking in 2014.

    79 is more expensive because of large layout and more luxury concept marketed by the expensive developer.

  74. behck
    September 9th, 2016 at 12:52 | #74

    79 n Spectrum 2k per level. Berjaya d CCC, congra ya. Do u know new strata act maintenance based on share unit? Extra car park.. etc, will need pay more.

  75. GT
    September 9th, 2016 at 15:33 | #75

    During the time i did my survey, Berjaya condo might already been halfway through construction. So the pricing is higher in terms of psf compared to the Spectrum. The unit I compared are above 10th floor. :)

    Weird, my first reply was awaiting moderation so not able to be posted yet but my 2nd reply about a level higher with RM5k increase was posted successfully…

    Berjaya not only CCC, but OC already passed, collect key next week..

    September 9th, 2016 at 18:46 | #78

    I remember the fully built berjaya is cement colored. Red brick could be cement too. Spectrum is real clay, entire building is truly red, it is not 100% though, common facilities car park area wall still normal cement.

  79. behck
    September 9th, 2016 at 18:51 | #79

    One thing I like bout spectrum corner unit is it doesn’t share wall. real independent, but facilities like pool, gym, ..etc real meh I would say.

  80. edisongan
    September 11th, 2016 at 13:00 | #80

    I really find you guys cute and funny..
    1) You guys kept saying BERJAYA is more expensive but none of you ever shared how much per sqf you purchased even I had shared mine was RM270/sqf…If Spectrum prices are lower than this or on par NOW, I might probably buy one unit there to keep as investment..Since Apple said the developer had done the price adjustment to boost up sales in 2014..As I mentioned, during my visit, it was slightly higher and without free store room at multi stores car park, though the different was around RM10k++ only..I did mention all this in my previous sharing, right ?

    2) behck,if you cannot take people’s correction on your mistake, then there is nothing I can say,ok…Let you win then…Did you go verify with BERJAYA before you assumed their red bricks on used on wall not real clay but cement or you simply assumed because I corrected your so called findings and survey on most projects that coincidentally I had visited too? I am living at the Taman next to BERJAYA only and I could see everyday before the facade wall painted to white.

    3) GT, your reply on 9th,Sept,9.02am, saying that 79th sqf is lower than both BERJAYA and Spectrum? Sure or not and again,can you share the price/sqf? I am looking for my 3rd property to purchase now and very interested in Spectrum and 79th since saw you guys feedback they are now cheaper than BERJAYA….To me if 79th is same as Berjaya, I will also buy due to its luxury position…please help share as I’m living in overseas and your sharings will be much appreciated, useful and helpful…thank you..

    @edisongan
    Edison, it is not who win who lose kind of thing la. we all know most dev is cakap tak serupa bikin one.If indeed berjaya uses clay brick then good4u lo…It is the perception, Spectrum really stand out along Jln SongBK if compare to current condos work in progress like Sentosa or 79…Berjaya is very tall, I just didn’t notice the redness of that building during construction….Spectrum has successfully capture ppl attention but we all know it is the end product that count…that we hv to wait & see.

I certainly not for investment purpose, my wife & i are active person, we swin bike & run regularly so stay in condo make sense..then again price is major factor, I chose it based on affordability..most money we ll dump in will come fr epf…dun wait till ahjib kor spend it all…lol.

    Of coz nothing personal…I was only fed up after reading you guys very subjective & vague replies without fact and figure sharing in the forum.You must know that many people are reading and concerned for, so giving and sharing useful information here is more important than personal fame. If the reply was based on assumptions and very subjective views, then it became very personal!

    So,please help share and enlighten us
    1) what’s the offer you got from spectrum, how much and how big size, we can work out the latest price/sqf as consideration to purchase and take it as guideline

    2) when is the date of completion of construction

    3) besides 2 car parks, anything else free for customers?such as aircon, cabinet, lawyer stamp duty fee, rebate?

    Trust me, I am the serious buyer too because so far only BERJAYA and Spectrum are using red bricks…also good location..

    I got mine at 390k for 1282sqft –> ~304psf for 13th floor Spectrum. Free SnP, Loan Agreement. 2 side-by-side car park. Completion end of 2017.
    79 during that time is around 438k for 1550sqft –> ~282psf.
    Berjaya is rather more expensive in terms of psf during that time even after rebate. Might due to reason it is already halfway through. No offense, but Berjaya got out of my list upon the pricing and the limited number of units left.
    Timing wise should be around end of 2014. Pricing are after rebate.

    NOTE: I am not talking about current selling price. I am sharing the price i got.

    Cheers. Not to be so stressed up bro. To be frank, I could not recall the red bricks used in Berjaya. Might have missed it as I only went back to BM once in a few months time.

    Personal feeling guys.
    Not to get too aggressive over the pricing or what so ever. No arguments needed here.
    Each condo have their own positive and negative side. Everyone would have their own preferences. Each of us went to survey during different timing. Hence, definitely there will be discrepancy in terms of pricing and offer given by the developers.

    Cheers. Its better to refer to the developers for latest offers. :)

    During my time, Spectrum left few top floors probably bcos heat/leaking roof, 2 corner unit lower floor. I was looking for corner unit & not facing evening sun, other not interested so didn’t really go ask for details. I got ~320psf for corner unit 1280sf, std 2 car parks, free legal fee for spa & stamp duty.

    This is for our own stay & within our price braket so other free stuffs actually didn’t matter to us. I would prefered to see my quality home before put my name on dotted line. Still can cancel this purchase if I don’t get to see the quality matched what I was shown.

    If u r looking for condo investment, this really no good bcos u r late buyer..but it is up to you. I think those near Pg LRT or KL MRT would be wiser choice..

    Of coz nothing personal…I was only fed up after reading you guys very subjective & vague replies without fact and figure sharing in the forum.You must know that many people are reading and concerned for, so giving and sharing useful information here is more important than personal fame. If the reply was based on assumptions and very subjective views, then it became very personal!
    So,please help share and enlighten us
    1) what’s the offer you got from spectrum, how much and how big size, we can work out the latest price/sqf as consideration to purchase and take it as guideline
    2) when is the date of completion of construction
    3) besides 2 car parks, anything else free for customers?such as aircon, cabinet, lawyer stamp duty fee, rebate?
    Trust me, I am the serious buyer too because so far only BERJAYA and Spectrum are using red bricks…also good location..

    Hi, I have an unit spacious double stores 20 X 79 at Sungai Dua, Butterworth. Gated and Guarded. with 700k. are you interested? Thanks

    @behck
    Thank you for your sharing and repy.

    Everyone views investment differently. I am not the greedy man and aim at high end one.e.g. above RM550/sqf…You can see most along the LRT line are above this price. I do not want to add on unnecessary pressure on me if I lost my job or I can’t afford one day.

    ROI is most important to me. Buying at RM300/sqf within my affordable level and probably sell at RM450/sqf is already 50% return where RM 450/sqf still have many people afford to buy,especially the young couple who work and save for more than 10 years.

    Imagine buying those at RM600 to RM800/sqf or even higher on Penang island, who is your targeted customer then? Foreign investor or rich man only..

    Nowadays, it’s getting more and more islanders move from Penang to mainland due to affordability too..my neighbor and colleagues are good example..RM550k can get a nice terrace house here or high end condo..

    From Apple and your reply, I thought Spectrum would be RM300/sqf or below since developer did the adjustment for promotion and you guys kept saying it’s still cheapest…If your is already RM320/sqf, so it’s reasonable price even the new soft launch project is offering me at RM320/sqf..From Hua Yang Berhad , project name: Meritus Residensi..They are having roadshow at Sunway Carnival now if not wrong…My friend’s company Rina property is their sales rep..

    Of course..If comparing between Spectrum and Meritus, I still prefer Spectrum..

    @GT
    Congrad to you !
    RM 304/sqf is considered a good deal ! My target to purchase is also RM 300/sqf since many of you mentioned “it’s cheapest” and “having done price adjustment for promotion”..

    Like I mentioned, nothing personal but please share the information in clearer way instead a very general term “more expensive, cheaper “…Worst is assumptions..Example, you guys are Spectrum buyers and I give assumptions that your developer is going to be lousy by replacing with poorer materials used on your project without verifying..How do you feel? Many Spectrum buyers will be offended, agree? Same goes to Berjaya buyers then..

    I went back twice a year just like you, but I am living at Taman Berjaya Indah, that’s why each time I came back I could see clearly together with my friend from island (he also bought Berjaya as investment), we went to view and take picture but of course, not going to such extent by breaking the “brick” to see if it’s really clay or cement..Never came across our mind..

    One thing I have to admit is now Berjaya price/sqf is higher than Spectrum, that’s why I do not intend to buy from them..Even their Exo residence at RM380/sqf now…Strategic location with air and noise pollution though..

    Last but not least, I do not know you and behck, so of course I wasn’t pin-pointing or trying to suan you guys…You could take this a courtesy reminder because really many people are reading, even my Singaporean friends..So, if information without verifying, could be quite misleading to those we are not local…

    Wrote this on 5.24pm, 14-Sep, may subject to moderation.
    Spectrum Residence price in early, during CNY 2014 was about 268 psf after checking past booking record. Now, 2016 Sep, surely not this pricing anymore. Berjaya condo booking in 2013 was about 275 psf. Regret that I have no money, did not buy any of them and both developers did not accept the “let go process to oth buyers”.

    I pass by the SMK school road every week to go to Jln Song Ban Keng, I did not remember seeing Berjaya condo use orange-red clay brick. Perhaps, it is the reddish cement sand brick required by Bomba rules. So, the entire building still look greyish to me. Spectrum is using orange-red clay brick, so the entire buidling looks reddish.

    Many of us use general term like cheaper, more expensive, better simply because this is a forum nia, not an investment professional advice PDS or fact sheet and most importantly, as we type, our past detail record is not beside us unless we dig it out first. Why should we provide such details ?

    Berjaya condo developer did increase their pricing quite fast and steeper than Spectrum developer perhaps they are bigger developer. Cheers.

    Thanks Bro.

    In term of materials used, one should seek clarification from the developers rather than relying fully on comments in forums.

    I do not intend on sharing the pricing as the current pricing and the pricing I get differs too much to be used as comparison. From my point of view, there is no point of comparing prices from almost two years back.

    @Apple
    Apple, this is the attitude problem…If you wish to comment on other projects beside your own, make sure it’s not assumptive, else, it’s gonna be offensive to other projects buyers.

    Same as your reply…Very assumptive…like “did not remember”, “perhaps”…Of course, you can stick to your own style always and no obligations to share in details..I cannot be bothered too, same goes to you..You can ignore me..because my replies were never meant for you.. but GT and behck as they are real buyers so I do not quite agree with what you said that they cannot remember the price/sqf or overall price they bought and how big the size is..
    Even they remember, yes, they have the rights not to share..

    I was only saying after a few round of replies, it’s already become an attention and people already started showing interest to find out more..It’s either you share what you really know in details rather than very general, vague, assumptive replies, its’ really kind of wasting time and resources of forum here.

    No rights or wrongs. You can either continue your willful way or try to dedicate..
    You did not buy both of them so you cannot remember the price/sqf is acceptable.
    I share what I know and what I know, I share. Never exaggerating…

    Let’s stop here then because I do not wish this forum becomes any personal feud and war.

    Last but not least, both projects I visited during the soft launch..Both projects priced around RM 270/sqf but Berjaya got free store room at multi storey carpark..Also, if lucky enough, can grab the unit with extending garden at extra 400sqf from balcony…so if put these into calculation, Berjaya would be much cheaper..

    Of course like you said too, Berjaya is more reliable since the offer gap was around RM10k+- difference, that’s the reason why I picked Berjaya at first..Now seeing Spectrum going up fast, I still have feeling for it..

    OK lo, Berjaya condo wins lo. Congrats. Happy ? I knew the pricing cos I have both booking forms filled last time.

    I pass by both projects every week, I know and believe what I saw and seeing the brick type they used.
    Either your English is very poor or your manner is bad. When ppl use “did not remember” and “perhaps”, ppl is politely telling you and others something indirectly lah. Like wise. I did not mean Berjaya condo is more reliable but to me is more greedy by increasing price faster and steeper but again you mis-interprete the polite comment as reliable pulak.

    Just like in hotel room, if the notice mention ” If you wish to buy ” those items like towel, kettle, jug, hair dryer, etc by listing the price, POLITELY they are telling the guests NOT to steal lo.

    Last but not least, why should anyone sharing details info with forumer, stranger just before typing ? Also, many ppl, esp NOT young investor like you, may not remember every single details except if they refer back to their documents.

    Strata Management Act 2013—-
    5 CHANGES TO THE STRATA LAWS YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF
    If you live in a condominium or apartment, you and your neighbours each own a piece, or “parcel”, in the building.
    Hence, the building would have to be subdivided, and you each get a separate title, called a “strata title”, to prove your ownership of your part of the building.
    When lots of people live together, share and manage a property together, there can be lots of legal, financial and social issues that need to be handled according to certain policies and rules.
    For a long time, Malaysia did not have a single comprehensive law covering strata titles until the Strata Titles Act 1985 was introduced. This governed the subdivision of buildings and the issuance of strata titles, but not the management of that subdivided building.
    So there was another Act — the Building & Common Property (Maintenance & Management) Act 2007 (BCPA 2007) — introduced to address the maintenance and management of high-rise buildings and their common property, whether by developers, joint management bodies or management corporations.
    With overlaps and even contradictions in these laws and policies (parts of which were under different ministries), and changes in the property landscape, the Acts became inadequate and in need of an overhaul.
    The New Strata Regime
    Significant changes were made with the Strata Titles (Amendment Act) 2013 (STA 2013) and the new Strata Management Act 2013 (SMA 2013), which have been in force since June 2015.
    It has been seen as a big step forward to increase efficiency and give buyers better protection.
    Our lawyer friend Geraldine, from Teoh Pek Wei Advocates & Solicitors, helps us explain 5 main legal changes to Strata Laws that you need to know:
    1. The Proprietor (registered land owner, not necessarily developer) must apply to sub-divide the parcels in the building at “super structure stage”
    Previously, the Proprietor would apply for separate strata titles after the building is completed, that is:
    within 6 months from the issuance of the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) if the property was sold before it was completed; OR
    within 6 months from the date of the Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA), if it was sold after it was completed.
    Image title
    Under the new changes, the Proprietor has to apply for a Certificate of Proposed Strata Plan (CPSP) within 3 months from the “super structure stage”.
    What is “super structure stage”? Generally, that’s the point where the walls dividing the different parts of the buildings are completed to such a stage that is necessary for measurements of your unit, your neighbour’s unit, the common property, etc.
    Once the Proprietor gets the CPSP, then it has to apply for sub-division of the individual parcels and common property within a month. A Certified Strata Plan will be issued, followed by the opening of the book of strata register.
    How does it affect you? With the head start, hopefully, your strata titles will be ready by the time you get your keys; unlike before, when it could take up to several years after the building is completed.
    2. Time Periods for Perfection of Strata Title Has Been Reduced
    Once the strata titles have been issued, buyers will now have to transfer the strata titles to their names within 30 days, instead of 12 months previously.
    This is so buyers don’t take their own sweet time to do the transfer. This move is also expected to curb speculative activity for investors who buy properties under construction, with the intention to flip once it’s completed.
    How does it affect you? You would need to have enough money to pay the stamp duty for the transfer sooner than before. So start saving up!
    3. Limited Common Property & Subsidiary Management Corporation
    With the many upcoming mixed-development projects in Malaysia — combining residential units with offices and retail shops — it’s now possible to manage the various components separately.
    The concept of “Limited Common Property” means certain common areas can be designated for the exclusive use of a certain group of owners, such as a resident-only swimming pool or an office-only lift.
    The Management Corporation (MC) can also create subsidiary management corporations (SMC) to better manage different types of Limited Common Property. For example, a residential SMC would manage the resident-only facilities, the office SMC would be manage the office block amenities, while the shop lot SMC would manage the shop lot facilities for owners, such as the central air-conditioning.
    How does it affect you? This system is meant to better serve owners’ interests by improving management efficiency and use of resources, such as the maintenance fees you pay. However, it is still a relatively new concept, and owners need to be educated on their rights and responsibilities.
    4. Presumption of Defect
    You know the situation where the bathroom in the unit upstairs is leaking into your ceiling and nobody wants to be responsible for it? This common problem is known as an “inter-floor leakage”.
    The supplementing regulations to the new Strata Laws — the Strata Management (Maintenance and Management) Regulations 2015 — make it easier to determine who is responsible to fix the problem and how long they have to do it.
    Firstly, you must give a notice to whoever is in charge of managing your property — the Joint Management Body (JMB), MC or SMC — of the inter-floor leakage. The management would have seven days to carry out an inspection to determine the cause of the leakage and the party responsible for rectifying it.
    (Under the new Strata laws, it is presumed that there is a defect in the unit or common area above, unless proven otherwise, and this has to be taken into account by the management bodies)
    If the property is still within the defect liability period, the developer may be responsible. If it is due to a common area, the owner may claim from the Common Property Defects Account.
    After the defect liability period, if the leakage is found to be from the unit above, the owner of that unit is responsible to make the repairs. If he or she refuses to do so, the management body may fix it and have a right to recover all cost and expenses from the party responsible for the inter-floor leakage.
    How does it affect you? Hopefully you won’t have to live with the drip, drip, drip longer than necessary anymore.
    5. Increased sanctions on owners who fail to pay Maintenance Charges
    Previously, the Joint Management Body (JMB) or MC could only file a civil suit against owners who fail to pay maintenance and service charges. Now, free-loading owners may have to face criminal charges and fines.
    The JMB or MC would first issue a notice for payment, with at least a 2-week window for the errant owner to pay up. If the owner fails to do so and is convicted, he or she will be liable to a fine of up to RM5,000, or imprisoned for up to three years, or to both. And the fine meter continues running at up to RM50 per day after conviction, until payment is made.
    How does it affect you? Don’t play play. Quickly pay!
    In conclusion, the new amendments to the Strata Act are good and much needed to protect buyers and to keep up with changes in the property construction and development industry.
    However, implementation and enforcement are key for the success of any law and to ensure we do not end up with lots of run-down and badly managed high-rise properties.

    Further clarification can be done with the developer regarding the built.
    None of us can guarantee 100% that what we saw and think are correct.
    N none of us can guarantee 100% that we can remember all the figures.
    For me, I compare, I take what I like, I forget.

    Yes,you could barely remember the projects you have surveyed through but will not forget the project you finally chose and purchased. My reply earlier on to both you & behck was referring to Spectrum price/sqf that you and he got. So my reply was pretty specific to attention to both of you only as both you are the genuine buyers. Not others who surveyed and didn’t buy or failed to buy but yet still like to talk big..

    Another one of my earlier reply is awaiting for moderation again,nvm..let me repeat myself here is why you wanna let go of your unit since you got at good price. If seriously you wanna let go, what price you wanna let go at?

    I’m serious buyer and more practical.we could meet up for coffee and discussion if you really wanna let go in next CNY…but wonder if you will change your mind since OC will only be obtained in 2018…before that I am afraid you cannot sell yet…

    @GT
    Dude, are you comparing price/sqf to price/sqf or you were saying overall?
    Do you know that I got Berjaya at RM390K at 1448sqf => RM270/sqf plus a store room around 100sqf at multi-storey carkpark..Of course, 2 free car park as well.
    At level 5, there are 4 units (if not wrongly remember) with extra “garden” extending from balcony at 400sqf for FREE (not charge into maintenance fee as well)
    So, if you were not comparing like this, then nothing to say…Spectrum offers smaller size at almost the same price as Berjaya…
    Now Berjaya only left with few units at high floor I suppose…So more expensive..
    In 2013, I was pretty sure Berjaya was the cheapest and better layout with RED BRICKS WALL

    Dude, why in this forum you quoted you bought Berjaya condo at 270/sqf but in Eco Bloom forum, June 29, 2016, 13:01, tread #35 you bought Berjaya condo at 280/sqf pulak ? You also cannot remember well is it for the property that you had bought ? Cheers.

    @Apple
    Well, they did not ask me the price after rebate then I just share the orginal price before RM12k rebate..It’s ok Apple..I know how you feel…Please work hard to save your downpayment first..Put more effort on it and try harder..

    Wish you the best

    September 22nd, 2016 at 10:35 | #123

    @Apple
    If you are still not convinced, you may call up the sales office to ask their original price if it was RM 400,800 that was RM 277/sqf..So I shared on that post was RM280/sqf because I wasn’t sure if rebate still available, interested buyers better go check out themselves.

    If you are really so much into details without rounding up / down, then mine was RM 267.95/sqf after RM12K rebate. Well..Sharing is fine but sharing to right person is more helpful and useful..

    Again, try harder and work harder for it, rather than having such willful, stubborn and stuck-up attitude problem, it won’t help at all..

    I will go find out when my next trip back. If high floor one still can get it at RM300/sqf, it is really a GOOD DEAL !

    I still have strong feeling for Spectrum…Looks like I must go back and check with the developer again…My first choice was made and done. Now it’s my second choice since Berjaya is already past tense to me.

    Apple, this is gonna be my last reply to you because my time should not be wasted on replying to you.

    I did mention very clearly that I cannot be bothered and you can ignore me, but it looks like your glass-made heart cannot take the blows while you still tried very hard to reply.

    I do not care and want to know if you are rich, highly educated and whatsoever. I already told you numerous times that my replies were never meant for you but yet you kept on taking yourself on and spending time to track my past posted messages. That’s good one, I have successfully impressed and imprinted myself into your heart. Haha

    Try harder again and I hope you really grow up and stop being so funny. Your target and focus should be something more constructive and useful. Maybe being our neighbor is also a very good and positive thing, I am happy to see that too and will come shake hand with you if you do not mind. Why bother me so much? Haha…This is cute one though…

    You judge me based on your perception, just like another cute boy Bobby though he claimed that’s from his “observation” , my feet!

    Just went to enquire for a type A unit (1282sqf) on 16th floor at RM445K so it is RM347/sqf..While type A1 (1217sqf) & A2 (1220sqf) is RM420K for same floor..so it’s around RM344/sqf..

    Completion of construction date will be Feb of 2018…Estimates…

    I will make up my mind to decide and prepare all required docs for my next triphome coming CNY…It seems same price as Meritus now…Good thing is it’s residential title..so still attractive ..

    Personally I like the type A which is only 30% shined by sunlight only in afternoon.
    The view is toward Jalan Song Ban Keng..

    I still want to view Casa Residence since now they do rebate, free cabinet, top up RM20k for fully furnished (except decoration and home appliances) so still waiting for them to release the price to me to work out my calculation. Too bad they did not open on 1st-Jan so I didn’t manage to view the show room but my best friend already went take some pictures for me.

    In term of location, Spectrum is the best compared to those projects along the Jalan Song Ban Keng. That’s why I am still undecided which one should I go for…

    Nothing special, I also went in before with my friend to take photo at very early stage at Berjaya Condo construction site. Depends on developer lah..Like us buying at lower floor, it’s always earlier done construction first so they will allow us to go in…Dutamas also can go in to view….

    Always depends on developer since their sales office is always near by then they will send one staff to lead you in…

    If that’s for investment, 10th~12th floors are most preferable because they have most transaction records.I purchased Casa Residence is at 10th floor…

    But for my own stay, my wife and I prefer lower floor for few reasons..Hehe..some are scary reason which I don’t share here…mainly because we have been living in high rise bldg for years, we are just lazy to wait for lift especially during peak hours…Yoh cannot afford to have any emergency calls too.hahahaha…

    So for own stay, Berjaya Condo, I purchased at 5th floor, requested car park at 4th floor…so that I can just go up by staircase after parking..

    Berjaya got 3 lifts so it’s very good..Imagine if only two lifts and one is under maintenance , only left with one working, the waiting time could be long…I experienced enough all these funny issues so for own stay I didn’t go for high floor since my wife also wants low floor.

    That location will not have flooding issue. If going further inside the 百利镇 probably will have slight problem with that but luckily the traffic design is good, a few ways out of 百利镇 if particular road gets flooded..So, no need to worry..The SR is just located in perfect location..Easy access..I may consider to buy SR couple years later because I wish my daughter to enroll in the primary school there so that could save our worries to send her to school every morning..So, you should consider this project, pretty good one

    BM still floods but the affected areas are getting smaller and narrow down alot due to diversion of traffic and drainage /sewage improvement.

    Now not to mention BM, Penang island also got many flooding issues lately, even my friends from island also said they have never encountered such serious flood in their whole life..Maybe the climate change plays very big part…Farlim, Jelutong, Tanjung also facing this problem…

    Spectrum Residence is really located very near to junction road of Jalan SBK, if easily gets flooded, guess most areas are no exception too…

    Just went to enquire during CNY for a type A unit (1282sqf) on 16th floor at RM445K so it is RM347/sqf..While type A1 (1217sqf) & A2 (1220sqf) is RM420K for same floor..so it’s around RM344/sqf..
    Completion of construction date will be Feb of 2018…Estimates…
