    Greedy? Dreaming? Smarter? I don’t know lah. All I know is, it will be as noisy as Light Linear, if not noisier. Many flippers are stuck with Light Linear because of the noise and dust. Good luck flippers!!

    No subsale value….foreigners not going to stay there. 90% of Expats in Penang stays up north. Now they price it way too expensive for locals. Who else wanna stay there? Perhaps IJM staffs. LOL.

    The household income need to exceed rm20k a month to qualify the loan of rm1.4 million.
    In reality, how many penang household can earn more than rm20k a month?

    Problem isnt the developers. It is the buyers/investors. Whatever the price launched, buyers will rush to snap up without thinking. As seller, who is not going to take advantage of these mindless buyers? Just look at Tamarind by E&O. Already stated clearly it is an APARTMENT, and yet people rushed to pay for close to 1m or 1m for each unit. It is not even a condo. Name me a project in prime location in Penang that is not selling like hot cake no matter what’s the price.

    I bought a unit in The LIGHT and most buyers there , including myself are local. The unit was nicely fit up and the environment was really nice.My understanding is that WR will price at 800 per ft2 and above.

  14. GuaFromPenang
    October 28th, 2015 at 08:20 | #14

    The LIGHT not a famous place for expat to rent due to lack of shopping and eateries within walking distance. It might stay this way for few years until Light Commercial ready.

    Penang household , middle age with both husband and wife working in factory will easily earn more than RM20K a month

    The Light Linear is not part of The Light Point , Collection 1 to 4. Pay a visit there and you will impress.

    October 28th, 2015 at 09:57 | #17

    Are you sure both husband and wife easily earn 20k a month?
    Good for you if you think so. I dont think that is a correct benchmark.
    It is sure very rosy if the majority earn that much. I am sure a little reality check will says otherwise. I wouldnt use the word ” majority ” anyway.

    The majority does not Sir. Hope my employees doesnt use this as a benchmark. :)

    if they priced the maintenance fee as high as The Light Collection 1/2/3/4 (rm0.40 PSF), this will scare away a lot buyers….

    Look at Collection 3 & 4. A lot un-sold units.

    For average joe they only willing to pay the maintenance fee up to rm300-350…

    I wonder how resident near egate live, breath chemical everyday yet still so many ppl buy at that area , pearl regency , platino and bayswater spend million to suck the chemical

    Don know how their life span going to cut due to this

    Moreover traffic jam in penang , wan live longer better stay away from city center n industrial zone

    Ya tamarind few thousand over unit flat selling at 700k to 1million, swimming pool can fit 5k ppl if one hs 5 ppl ?

    Yup, sold out. IJM only released 20% of the total units for sale, all sold out.

  30. robravo
    October 23rd, 2017 at 21:51 | #30

    @ruth choong
    Why just released 20% for sale? How about the other 80%?

  31. soouch
    October 23rd, 2017 at 22:03 | #31

    Mean 20% remain for sale? So fast so out? How come can do so well in the current condition? Where you get the info?

    Sold out or cannot sell? hard to believe it 80% sold. What so attractive at the location with high price tag?

  34. ruth choong
    October 24th, 2017 at 13:10 | #34


    The other 80% keep first, the market is slow anyway. It is very common in HongKong/Singapore for developers to sell the units in a project batch by batch (phase by phase) depending on demand.

    IJM still got bundle of un-sold stocks for their Light Collection 3 & 4. All million dollar homes.

    Dude i think you have been living in your shell for far too long. Please come out and have some fresh air. The majority of people working in factories DO NOT earn 20k income per month.

  37. robravo
    October 24th, 2017 at 20:59 | #37

    Mean they just sold out 50 units. 20% of total 256 units.

    IJM early bird must be very sad. HOC 10%+1% rebate on the current selling price for WR but the early bird only have discount of 1 or 2% during soft launch. Seem like nowadays early bird do not gain any advantage than latter. Don’t know if any of those purchaser got go to complain but clearly now is buyer market. Good job IJM to bring down the price. buy buy buy!
