This place is getting expensive, not becos of the unit itself or layout or location but rather the neighbourhood, quite number of foreign workers stayed there. If you want to find out what I means, just stand in front of guard house, ard 10.30pm -11pm every nite, u'll know what I'm trying to say.

the value of putra place has dropped since the management taken over by JMB and robert bench managing it

car park allocated by developer is also very far from unit unless u settle some kopi duit to the sales person during purchase

With new management, security is tighten and will this bring down the value of the condo? And i dont think the car park is too far for a condo unless u compare it with a terres house :)

Those investors who think can cook up the property price. Beware!
Property market is overheated now!
You may assume property price will continue to be rocket sky high, but pls ask the real estate agency around you in Penang, how many sales they have made during the past few months. If there is no demand, price will be drop very soon. Klang Valley had already felt the heat now, soon will spread over to Penang. Just like stock market, there will be an optimum point when price start to go down.

The main concern of this apartment is lot of Bangladeshi/Myanmar workers around. Though property price may value at rm250, if you happen to stay besides them, even rm200k will consider expensive.

So, wait for the price drop below 200K only buy..... :)

With new management & execution team (Robert Bench), I believe things could get better based on the below reasons (not comprehensive).

1. When the property is managed by the developer (Techware), the management allowance incurred RM12x,000 for yr 2007, and the salary for their staffs another RM13x,000 (referring to their published auditor report). All these not yet include the outsourced security staffs fees and other maintenance fees. With Robert Bench, I learned that their monthly charge is 8k for 5 staffs (not verified, and could be some other charges). At least, lots of cost saving from paying the developer. They also re-tender all the services (cafeteria, security, gardening, cleaning etc), at least now with more transparency and competition drive improvement.

Joint Management Committee (JMC) is not exclusively for Putra Place la... this is Malaysia new housing Act for all high rise (not sure service apartment), all condo are compulsory to form JMC. Robert Bench is considered part of JMC when it come to decision making.

Price drop? It's again the odd. Yes, property price may drop in KL but this mostly referring to luxury or medium cost condo (read la the article properly and do some analysis). What happen in Penang island property market during 1997, stagnant but not dropping ok. And if you refer to PDC for Penang development, current blueprint have located a monorail station at The Sanctuary site, which is walking distance to all development at Bayan Mutiara, Gold Coast and Queenbay. What is the odd the price for property along these area to drop?

--May i know how much management allowance charged by Robert Bench for one year?

Ya, according to year 2007 audited reports, Techware 12xk for management allowance, and 17xk (not 13xk, my previous mistake) for salary, not yet included EPF. And all the while, only 1-2 management staffs in office, and it took them 5 months to refund my renovation deposit, highly inefficient. And, all those not included landscape maintenance /gardener, security force etc... I heard from many people, that Villa Emas fund already dry up when their JMC took over, and they cannot afford to bring in external management company, so the residents have to run the show all by themselves. But, I didn't kepo to verify the claims, let's just call it rumours. Lucky Putra Place take back the management office within 2 years, bravo to the JMC.

According to JMC chairman Nick, RM8k the total management fee per month. GE Tan also offer a compeittive RM8k per month.

If you need more details, can join their JMC meeting.

Just FYI: recently, my friend got a quote (via phone) from an agent (also posted in this blog) for block A pricing. For a renovated medium floor unit, 340k above and higher that bypass the low cost will claim higher due to better air ventilation. The rm320k posted her is for none-block A medium floor renovated unit, facing pool, double car parks.

Hi ladies n gentlement,I'm an owner from Putra Place.

I just want to share with you that the rental now is from RM1200/mth onwards and reno will be RM1600-RM2k depend on renovation condition.

For those who intend to purchase,the selling price for empty unit will from RM250k onwards depending on the floor level and the viewing.

The reno unit will from RM280k onwards depend on the reno condition...pls check how many car park will provide by the seller cause now one carpark is selling at RM25k.Beside that,the pool view is more expensive than Seaview abt 15k cause seaview is facing road which will be noisy and dusty....Hope my info will help those who looking for hse in Putra place

putra place is a good buy at the moment. just grab a unit if you can get as many people are eying on it now.

i was told by a PP JMB comittee member that you dont need 2 car park lots. You can just drive in the middle entrance (after the guards are familiar u the owner) and simply park your car at the empty lots (owned by dev. n not taken up.) heard got 300 over empty lots. most residents are doing this.
so can park 3-4 cars anytime.

2 days back, i was looking for a unit to buy at putra place. the agent took me there. i walked around the surrounding and i was surprised of the level of cleaniness. it is not maintained well as before when i surveyed a year back. i also saw a lot of dog shit scattered around. i spoke to some cleaners and was iformed then many owner keep dogs and they just shit around with no action taken by the management. its so unhyghenic. the worse i have seen so far.

If the property price is to drop, the upcoming recession may help you to make this condo more affordable. Don't need any make up story about dog shit... Old saying: you see what you look for...

 
December 30, 2008 at 3:30 PMAnonymous

There is no such thing as "below 240K" unit at putra place. Please do ur homework first before asking what you want.

 
January 1, 2009 at 11:39 AMks

most units are a more than rm260K already


on the dog shit, the management is now finding a solution so please stay with them until the matter is solved. the owner of dog are educated people but do not want to follow house rules making them ******.

garden view is slightly higher than sea view/road view/mosqueview

 
February 17, 2009 at 6:19 PMsy

alternate days, get saman from polis. did somebody complain to management?

 
May 25, 2009 at 12:35 PMpaul

below rm260k with 2 car parks is a joke, unless the owner cannot service the loan anymore.....

below rm250k for high floor n seaview is another joke too ....

seaview price for this condo is now high as the demand is so great as there is more privacy and not so noisy as the garden view. you can look into block 5 which have some decent seaview units but higher than 6 floor would cost a min of rm270k.. unless u know what lah...owner going bankrupt or so..

block 3 would be good too as it is away from the main road, but limited seaview units as only the wing on the left(nearer to block 5) has complete seaview compare to the right wing.

but for your info, block 2 and block 1 value is now a bit low... so if you have a low budget, u can try looking into this two block...why...?

as for block 2, garden view would be higher priced compared to the other view, which is the road towards the low cost flats and the tong sampah collection bin, basically the tong sampah view would be cheaper...

for block 1, one side is facing the surau & the low cost flats which the value is now lower....
but i would not like this at all as very hard to sell in future too...

so in conclusion, it is best to choose either block 5 or block 3. and best to get the seaview... as for garden view, all 5 block have garden view and only block 3 & 5 has seaview...

so there are limited seaview unit and its easier to sell later on, and mat salleh loves seaview, so price wise also higher....

and make sure you get the unit which comes with 2 car parks.. unless u got kangtau like some ppl where u can simply bring in your car n park at any vacant lots.

 
August 19, 2009 at 1:13 PMpaul

it is not surprising to see many ppl now want to sell of their units

so much of problems arising......in this condo
when i was renting there, our kitchen wall just cracked.... and upstairs bathroom leaking...so hard to get the problems rectified....

internal water pipe also leaking


inform the house owner many times also problem cannot solve, at last moved out.

Hi all, I am resident of Putra Place. I have setup a blog about Putra Place Condo recently. Hopefully this will help buyers have an idea about this condo. I am not the property agents but I will try my best to answer your question if you need any information about it. Welcome to my blog

Is this condo well maintained and environment is good? How much is the price now?

 
March 18, 2013 at 6:01 PMDennis Phoon

In my opinion, if agents want to offer services to seller to sell his/her premises, its is better that agents advertised it precisely. Don't advertise like "agent" is the buyer who want to buy from owner for his/her own stay. Sometime seller may feel offended or cheated, when you (the agents) start to reveal your true identity.
