I like IOI Properties. The reason is because the condo I bought from them in Penang gave me a very good home for 6 years and I recently sold it for a very good profit. Thus, I consider them to be a good developer. Of course this is very personal and depending on circumstances too because I have a friend who said their design are not current enough (in other words, old fashioned)! Perhaps they may change this perception with their latest project, Bandar Bangi. Before we look further, first question is do you know where is Bangi? If yes, that’s good because I think majority would know where Bangi is. Second question, are you buying your first home? If you answer Yes, the final question is can you afford to pay up to RM450,000 for one unit? You can view Almyra which is serviced apartment unit with a minimum built up of 969sf and prices starting from RM360,800. Then, why did I mention RM450,000? Well, they do have slightly bigger corner units for close to that price. For the price and the slightly further distance, I think this project is not too bad. The whole development is still continuing too.
Bandar Puteri Bangi township is a 370-acre freehold integrated mixed development. Yes, this is considered huge. Nearby areas include Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and even KLIA making it not really out of touch with the world. Yes, Bangi always have that feeling that it’s so far away but come on, if you work in not too far away areas, this is suitable for you. Buying for rental? Buying for investment to sell after the key is handed over? Well, for these two reasons, Bangi may not be your top choice. I would prefer Kepong or even Sungai Buloh instead. Note, this is just a personal choice. No one can say which area is the best because no one is like you and me. Are we buying because of our reasons or because someone said we should buy? 🙂
There would also be a 167 acres commercial centre and this would offer a lifestyle of dining, shopping and entertainment choices including alfresco dining, street cafes, quaint boutiques and hypermarkets like Tesco. Not bad lar, pretty established within the next eight years. Landscapings are based on concepts such as California Street, Tropical Street and Art Street and it will be complemented by tree-lined boulevards, lush flora and spectacular panoramic views. All these are known as the The Streets of Dreams which is actually a system of parks, paths and open public spaces. This allows busy and modern people staying there to still feel the greeneries and nature.
Other projects which are for richer people and those with bigger families include Kubica Square priced from RM1,525,800. It is a three and four storey shop-offices with a built up of 5,237 – 17,465 sq ft. There is also The Terrress, a two storey superlink house with a built-up from 2,510 sf and priced from RM728,800. Take a look, no harm if you are buying your first home. Happy viewing.
