Counting d days to be really able to 'living in jb'
It is what we think we already know that often prevents us from learning...
Happy New Year everyone!!!
I just came back from JB after re-visiting the 6 developments I mentioned. HH is probably one of a few which has increased its price substantially across the entire spectrum. All current launches including Clusters, Condos, Super-Links, Semi Dees, Bungalows have increased in prices.
And I am super delighted to know HH is currently selling the same unit type I purchased at about 42.5% higher than the price listed in my SPA signed just 6 months ago.
I am very satisfied with a 6 months 40% paper gain, what more, the bumi units are probably not released yet, so another round of price increase is expected. And I thought this price is crazy, but after checking with similar units in other tamans (I shall not name), I found out that this price is comparable to the prices in other tamans. So it should be sustainable lah!
Sorry for being such a bull. I am a dragon (Crystal Jie, in case you're still wondering) and I hope it will be a good year ahead for everyone!
I shall review positively on the other developments I have viewed.
First one we went to is Besteri Heights, So far I think less than 20 percent of international lots are still available, they have increased more than 100+k over the one year since they launched. If you are looking for convenience and reasonable price with good interior quality, I think this is very decent.
Next we went to Nusa Duta, but probably because they have almost sold out the current phrases, they decided not to open on the eve of New Year. Went in to have a re-tour of the precinct and have seen many new home owners moved in with very extensive renovations. Some are very tasteful indeed. Too bad the sales unit wasn't open.
Next we went to Setia Bukit Indah. Enquired about the new cluster precinct called Garden Villa, starting price should be around 888, 000 before discount, quite a tasteful exterior, but for those who have dealt with Setia you will know the quality. Also checked out Sky Loft, prices have remained the same, about 480-600 psf up for remaining units. High price due to higher floors left. But I also recalled they have not launched the bumi units, so probably will expect more price movements. Also quite a sell out for international units with more than 80% taken. In my opinion, I think the specs given (esp floor tiles) can be better to justify the price. What I like about this development is it's location next to commercial developments.
Then we went to Nusa Idaman! overall as what many brothers and sisters have mentioned, this is a very good development. It has good quality and finishes, being located between Bukit Indah and Horizon Hills, it definitely has more room to move. Was confirmed that the 10k promotion has ended. There are still good units available up for grabs. There is a good discussion and review on this development, I can't agree more with brothers and sisters here on your views. If I am buying for own stay, I will consider this for its peaceful, natural setting, and I will also consider Nusa Duta for it's design, master plan and convenience.
Lastly, we went to East Ledang (Impiana). Also one of the top picks for long term investments, being close to 2nd link, Educity and Medini. Definitely one to look at for those who have confidence in Nusajaya and is here for the long term. Price is at a premium compared to similar developments, but can be justified in long term. I would consider if I have holding power like many of the brothers and sisters here! Also got the chance to check out the under con Ujana, it definitely looks good after a good paint!

Found a nice video to share.
I am not vested yet and i am not a property agent...
I do hope it's something on 3rd link, or some means to speed up clearing of customs for us. The causeways are the bottlenecks now.
What a wonderful website !! Thanks for all the advice. I seek your 'ultimate' advice : anyone with a reliable and nice to deal with lawyer to help me with my resale transaction? Would appreciate your advice.
I am keen to get a unit at Senibong ( yes its polluted and sometimes smells )
Give it to the ah Meng, don't fight even if you can beat him flat... Not worth it.
In Singapore it is a different story. One Lao ah Meng honked at my car for being slow and at the traffic Junction, he lowered his window and stared and me. Immediately I opened my car door and charged directly at him.. This chao ah beng so scared and immediately drove off even it is red light.. Never see such a chao coward..
When i first bought a house in JB,..my initial plan was to have a weekend home partly so that my kids can have an spacious environment away from the evils of TV and internet. So i told myself just buy one landed at a ok location can liao and at close to the min RM500K+. Dont waste so much monies..just in case things doesnt work out. I dont see it as investing rather as an alternate location to play and retire.
However over the last couple of months, i have visited multiple developments such as Educity, Puteri Harbour, Kota Iskandar etc and I realise my objective is slowing changing. Indeed one can read about all their grand plans on paper/internet/forum etc but the impact of what the Msians are planning and doing doesnt really hit you until you are walking the grounds, smelling the air and seeing it with your own two eyes.
So i am seriously thinking of buying another property in JB to invest this time round....most likely to be a condo.
