    Btw, I didn't know about the dmc for P8. Can u share what u have gathered about the dmc? I know about he maintenance clause only. Thanks

    Just wait and see for next year or buy? It will be an interesting year, it may get bad or it may get better. Who knows really?
    For me, i am here for the long haul so i am still in the buying mode. Interestingly, one learned elder who was was against too much into Malaysia recently bought a large number of properties here using cash. We influence each other in turn. Bless his soul, he always looks out for me.

    Just being nosey abit. What convinced u to buy in 8b?

    P7a targets to complete by middle next year. If I want to move in fast, I might also consider it. Lots of intermediate in 7a and 8b left, so no hurry except the 10k promo ... Arghhhh!
    May i know where are the shorter version end-lots? 8/8, 8/9, 8/10, 8/11? Din realised got shorter version?...

    Ours is End-lot 32' by 75'. We purchase for 539,888.

    Long story... Location, Lay-out, Surrounding ambience, Developer, Pricing, which ties in with our outlook and purpose of relocating to Nusajaya eventually...

    Come and join our neighbourhood. Do you cook?

    Bro , so which is the true views ?
    I hope they do but from what i heard, its the same as what you have heard Jasonjst. This is as 2 bros went to ask and got same reply. One is local.

    Yah bro, I'm looking for long haul too. I started late but starting young. Being the first purchase im getting myself into, I trying to assess and learn concurrently. I need to make the first purchase right to boost my confidence for subsequent journey. It has been exciting learning and visiting all these show houses and developers. I have decided my first purchase shall be in NI. Let's hope it all work out for me.

    I tried to google the "big" news. No results leh?! Where did u all read the news?

I'm in as great a dilemma as I'm still trying to make a call whether to buy at NI now :S

    P/s: The banks used to approve loan based on gross income and your installment up to 40% of gross income. Now it's based on nett income and max 30%. The effect on sales is there already, based on what I have gathered
    Its actually their way to ensure the market stays warm enough but not too warm. There are some who did not buy with loans or those who bought with loans and then repaid them in a year or two. There are also those that may have financial issues and some agents promised them they could get a loan at certain percentage. When it didn't go through and they find themselves in a tight bind with no banks to lend them, thats when they have no choice but to pass it on.

    Happened 3 years ago when someone got rid of their property (i bought a few subsale) by selling to me. Happened for 1 unit 1 year plus back when a relative bought from someone who couldn't get a loan as well. Its pretty hard not to be able to get a loan here though.

    Bros who are into cars may consider banks like Ambank, HLB for car loans.

    Hi DreamorACTION bro/sis, are you young? I think if buying and looking long haul, you can book your unit now and secure the good unit and discount first. Nothing to lose!

    whats the booking fee for NI again? i cant remember

    Its very remote, accessible only via Gelang Patah but...........
    It has a new road which will link it to NI easily, thus ensuring ease of access.

    Its very near to the SILC area. I would consider shops there as its 3 storey.

    Yes, you are right, i didn't like the design of the houses so much but still quite ok. The shops are better. It will be far more accessible once their new roads are done u;.

    It's 8/8 bro. Lot number 169401, 169525 etc. u might not see difference on the plan, but the agent told me its shorter and informed me so that I get no surprised. I prefer it longer so I'm gonna choose intermediate. Price around 470++, before 10k discount.

    Cook? I can cook ... U dare to eat? Hahahah

I am afraid that I might missed some important considerartions.

    Can Brother and Sister offer me some advice on flexi loan?
    I would take flexi loan after all the considerations but thats just me.

    HLB is a pretty good bank and easy going compared to the rest. Have you got a quote already? Some stated blatantly that foreigners cannot buy, etc, others push your money down from the counter. These were the "good service" i received when i first started.

    Just asked a learned friend, seems some of the difficulty is to do with their tax related stuff (won't elaborate further) here so when they try to get bank loan, it backfires on them.

    Nothing to lose ar? Trying to get the best deal mah. Lowest capital outlay with highest appreciation haha. But I'm entering at a late stage. While 10k is good discounts now, if there is a little more discounts coming up, then why not? That's why can't decide yet lor ...

    It's 10% of 475k, minus 10k. All legal fees absorbed, including Mot. Free service charge for 2 years. That's about all. So, really, just go get it now?

    Wah, cannot lah, it has to be your call

    Think of it this way, what is RM10K thirty years from now? Buy now - also can. Wait and see buy in Jan 12 - also can, but w/o the 10K rebate only what... but its your call...

    Whatever it is, wish you good luck, peace and happiness

    Its Poo or Poh, i might have misheard. I am glad your car is fixed and you are having fun. Walking is actually fine, probably just don't carry your branded LV or Coach bag slung over a shoulder while walking by the roadside alone at night

    You can also call a cab or ask them to send you to a place first and then to pick you up later like what a bro suggested. Mr Satu Malaysia helped me with tightening my throttle line, getting me slightly (slightly is an understatement) faster response. He did it as a friend so its FOC.

    I also bought tyre locks from him for my good tyres as well as asked him to get me good NGK spark plugs. He also has access to K&N dealers. He has a real passion for cars this gent. I need to call him that as he told me to buy certain new cars even though he won't get a cut and knows that for the first 5 years, he won't get my business for that 2 cars at least.

    10% is more than what i thought and is not any small amount. there should be a booking fee prior to this 10%. Maybe you should check, plus check whether it is refundable, if yes, ask them to put down on paper black and white.

    Yup, I want a flexi loan. Narrowed down to cimb and rhb. Inclined to get cimb (just based on info for website) but trying to get feedback on their service. Seems like no one use cimb here. I will check out HLB. Never had them in mind. So far, I haven't got any quote yet
