Money grows like plants. If you can care and nurture them well they will grow overtime. The greener the leafs the faster and bigger they will grow. Be more conservative in material wants and seek for opportunity to grow.

that's why they come up with different kinds of investment and saving plans. :-D

The super condo bubbles in Penang will burst soon.

It is not IF but WHEN!

March 11, 2009 at 8:52 PMC

i rmb when i visit their office in 2008.. was selling at 1mil onwards. now i heard was selling at 3mil .. my god! what a great investment i have seen .. its even better than putting ur money into te share investment or any of the investment available .. to be frank, i dunt really like the quality itself .. not comparing with Spore property giving a full package with extremely great quality.. lets compare with The Cove in Penang. Same location with Paragon, its selling only at below 1 mil for 6000 sqf! Gosh! I heard that CA. Goh having another proj in june only selling for 250 per sf for 11,000 sdft unit .. interesting!

Penang property will correct by 50%. Artificially pushed up. No rally will like this, we are in a depression. Look at what happen to usa, europe, Korea n japan. we cannot be fool to buy so high.

April 3, 2009 at 2:37 PMJoanna

Hi Learn & Trade,

I totally agreed with your view on this type of development. Don't be fool by the looks of the development, let's see what is inside and surrounding.

I have a famous female agent told me that super condo is not worth buying becuase of its value and high rental whereby Penang market does not sustain such pricing.

Unlike in KLCC areas whereby many expatriate and foreigner as well as local can push up the price, but not in Penang.

April 3, 2009 at 3:13 PMameer

Hi Joaanna,

Who is your famous agent lady name?

April 13, 2009 at 11:52 PMProperty

Hi. We would like to invest in a property in penang. We would like to seek advice from your famous lady agent . Maybe she can give us honest advice.Thanks

April 25, 2009 at 11:58 AMJoanna

Hi Ameer,

You don't have to know her name ok.

April 25, 2009 at 12:02 PMJoanna

Hi Property,

The honest advise is to buy those property that is around 1,200 sq ft to 1,700 sq ft property on the Penang Island.

The famous lady also told me that ever since the economy slow down many such high-end super condo like the Gurney Paragon is being badly hit and the sales is either being cancelled or put out i.e. Bayu Ferringhi, Platino, Fettes Residents & HR.

It is because many intented buyer from Korea, Japan and European are smarter now but the Hong Kong guys is still dump dump in buying Paragon.

April 25, 2009 at 12:04 PMJoanna

Dear all,

You all can check around in the Penang market that The Cove sub-sales selling price has dropped from a high time of RM2.7 million to only now around RM1.7million.

The only still good and excellent super condo investment is The Spring Tide, the price is still going strong at RM600 psf.

So if you are keen to invest a super condo, consider la such property.

And also pls look behind the property developer background first before you part your money. Don't be fool by the good external looks or PR exercise by the developer in Penang.

July 11, 2009 at 11:59 PMArt of

why is Penang property so badly designed? yet cost so damn high??? sea view and all that aside..the design and outlook is not sophisticated enough to charge such an amount...if were to charge a million above please kindly consult a world famous architect and interior designer

This is economics. Penang Island is an island after all. The land for development is finite. Unlike Butterworth....

July 15, 2009 at 12:17 PMangeline

Citysleeker is right. ISLAND is always an island. What to do people just love to be near to sea. When we said it is expensive in Ringgit in other currency it is no longer expensive. Anyway someone did code "is not how much you are holding is in what currency you are holding".

What kind of loan rates does CIMB offr these days? Any special promotion?


July 16, 2009 at 3:45 PMangeline

CIMB offers flexibillity to customer who apply for flexiloan package. It is like taking OD yet enjoying HL rate. Recently I myself bought a property and was attracted to other banks' loan rate therefore try applying from them. Even though they can give up to 0.50% lower than CIMB, I still find CIMB package attractive. Reason? The flexibility allows us to save on total interest paid to FI.

Hi Hunza,

Has the Stop Works Order been lifted on your project?

November 3, 2009 at 7:48 PMCatherine

Can anyone advise me the maintenance fee psf plz. Thank you.

January 22, 2010 at 10:15 AMSmart

I heard that the project manager was being demoted due to the Stop Work issue.

April 7, 2010 at 10:53 PMHell

Heard the sales from this project is not good.. the company staff went for oversea trip to sell this property . I think is more like spending company money for tour ..cuti cuti dunia. I learn one thing from buying property that there is no " guaranteed return " that is why is call risk

April 11, 2010 at 1:19 AMcat

see how many wall crack after 21 Dec 2012 .. I scare stay at condo/apartment .. so scare .. so many earthquake.... from last year Dec until yesterday many earthquake .... last week .. Mexico 7.1, Indonesia 7.8, China 4.x and yesterday 4.1 ... terrible .... good luck !!

April 24, 2010 at 3:37 PMVictory

Pesonnaly, don't think their Paragon will do well. You have one 'tai kor' in Gunrey Plaza (managed by Capita land). Hope it won't end up like Penang Times Square. High end condo should not link to shopping plaza. It should be exclusive...some bad planning here.

May 31, 2010 at 8:36 PMCitysleeker

Actually most units are sold... especially those facing the sea. Only those facing the city are left. So not bad at all....

As for the mall... Hunza has appointed Knight Frank (KF) to get the tenants. Am not sure if they will be the mall manager eventually... KF doesn't hv the experience to run a successful shopping mall.

June 25, 2010 at 2:25 PMHenry

Who said the sale is good for the Paragon? Pls go and check your facts la, developer also said sold but in fact based on what they said sold, non-bumi units? Reserved by directors units? Pls la, don't try to sell you product here ok.

June 29, 2010 at 9:49 AMSmart

This is the 2nd time that the land around the project had sunken with big cracks on the roads and with neigbor condomininums. The land in and around Gurney in fact is not stable as below ground are full of marine clay which is subject to under sea water movement.

July 14, 2010 at 3:36 PMWilder CEltic

As Smart said the land is not stable around this area, more than one condo building has suffered some problems due to the unstable ground. However, this project is embedded in risk as when the ground around this area sunk it took them the entire day to fill it and it appeared that their attempts of filling it had very little effect at the begining, i have no idea how they managed to finally fill it in. It felt like you were seeing a 2012 movie scene with the ground sunk and roads cracked.Be careful with your purchase and make sure you get a insurance with good pay back...

September 15, 2010 at 8:30 PMtan

I beleive property insurance does not cover for building damage due to land sinking (force majuere)?

March 3, 2011 at 2:59 AMPenang Fan

Becareful. Probably you will lost your sea view once the land opposite is reclaim. This is inevitable as the sea is already silting up and it is a matter of time this sea/land will be filled, highway and building will take it's position. So at the current high price Hunza is charging is not conducive to buy. Gurney Drive will no longer be a coastal drive.

May 16, 2011 at 3:03 PMLeonard

Hunza has a bad reputation.Viewed Alila few weeks back and found out that the lobbies’ fountains was leaking less then 6 mths after VP and it was switched off until today. It has yet to be fixed by Hunza. Some say hunza are buying time and will wash their hands when strata title is out some time this year.
Floor tiles of many units also cracked just within 4 mths after OC and still happening.
Words on the street are that Infinity is having a land scam court case still going on.
So, careful if want to buy from Hunza.

July 25, 2011 at 4:00 PMAnonymous

Has anyone seen the completed projects? Any more units for sale?

July 25, 2011 at 10:52 PMPenang Fan

I for one think this Paragon is way over priced. Beside the layout is not that good either. I wouldn't buy.

August 20, 2011 at 1:07 PMLeonard

This developer is terrible. See how they take off the skin of the hundred years old trees (2 trees) along Kelawai road? its obvious they intend to kill these trees....

Property sales slip on economy worries, polls talk
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 — Property sales have fallen off their 2010 peak while investors and home buyers move to the sidelines as worries of a global economic slowdown, government cooling measures and uncertainty due to the upcoming general election start to bite.
The slowdown is most severe in the luxury high-end segment which has seen prices drop by as much as 25 per cent due to oversupply and unattractive rental yields, prompting more developers to start paying attention to the more affordable mid-market segment which is expected to be less affected by a softening of demand.
OSK Research said in a report last week that Sunway, one of the nation’s biggest developers, expects the property market to soften over the next six months while Paramount Property Development managing director Datuk Ricque Liew told The Malaysian Insider that there has been a “marked change” in terms of sales from last year to this year especially in the high-end segment.
Property analysts contacted by The Malaysian Insider meanwhile expect sales to slow from a high of 21 per cent growth last year to between zero and five per cent growth next year or even contract if the economy takes a turn for the worse.
Patrick Chay, founder of PropertyTalk & Lifestyle Malaysia, a social media platform for property investors with 448 members, said the mood among members has turned conservative with gloomy economic news and the looming general election, which must be held by the first half of 2013, weighing on decisions on whether to buy.
Paramount’s Liew said developments in the high-end segment in areas like KLCC and Mont Kiara were the most affected by rulings such as the 70 per cent cap on loan-to-value mortgages for third properties and the inability to attract tenants for rental yield as some properties sit empty for as long as 15 months or more.
Property consultant and valuer Elvin Fernandez of the Khong & Jaafar group of companies said properties had historically been priced at 4-5 times household income but had shot up to as much as 10 times income, while rental yields for the benchmark double-storey terrace houses, especially at hot spots, had slumped below the three per cent threshold.
“The mood and sentiment has changed,” he said. “A lot of sales have slowed down and developers are not selling as briskly as before.”
The Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) of the Ministry of Finance, in its first half report for 2011, said that against the first half of last year, the volume and value of transactions recorded double-digit growth of 18.1 per cent and 29.7 per cent respectively but grew at a lower rate of 10.2 per cent and 12.6 per cent respectively when compared against the second half of last year.
Former JPPH deputy director-general Datuk Mani Usilappan said however that there is generally a lag in terms of data collected in the first-half report which is more reflective of transactions done toward the end of last year.
“I am not confident that there will be a correction,” he said. “What will probably happen is a slowing down of the take-up rate.”

Expect many units to go for auction just like One Ritz.

So, you should wait if you are interested to buy.

February 10, 2012 at 9:43 AMcondomana

Hi lim,

Why do you think so? Was that the case for One Ritz? Do you know the reason?

February 24, 2012 at 6:03 PMalan

No many buyers can afford >2M property.

If you know the truth, MM2M is a joke.

February 24, 2012 at 6:10 PMtan

Check around your friends around you.

90% believe the price correction is around the corner.

This prevalence is enough to slow down the market.

February 25, 2012 at 6:10 PMwilliam

hi,i follow this blog everyday but this is my 1st comment.
i am one of the owner of one of the unit.i bought it basically for retirement, not for speculation.
Most of the owners i know has my same intention.After buying , selling is not an option.I really enjoy my stay whenever i am in penang.
U must know by now, location, facility come with price.
I terrace house in klang valley are fetching price of <1 mil.
Also, most of the units here has all been sold.

February 25, 2012 at 9:56 PMUnknown

I'm seriously thinking to get one unit from the developer (2.2Mil and above) and I think this condo is worth more than RM700/Sqft. As the upcoming Setia V residence are quoted close to 1000/sqft.
I feel the price will still appreciate after the shopping mall is completed!

February 28, 2012 at 11:45 AMTim

B4 buying you may need to consider,

Is the land sinking problem permanantly fixed or warrantied by Hunza?

The sea view may not be there becos the $ on the table is too BIG for the State Government to walk away (regardless BN or Pakatan).

SHAME on the STar paper for promoting the preperty fair as the premier event for all penangites... the properties prices are outrageous ,excessively inflated and ridiculous which is unaffordable to penangites.

We see unscrupulous greedy developers, bankers, real estate agents colluding together manipulating the prices on every corners , even the media is roped in giving half-truths and propaganda… they now sharpening the knives going in for the kill .. daylight robbery

fleecing, a rip off ...

BNM and the authorities should wake up start taking action before the situation explode
“ Justice must not only be done but must be seen to be done ! “…

Shame! Shame! Shame!

July 15, 2012 at 1:07 PMUnknown

You might be shopping in the wrong place. The property fair is showcasing luxury property only. If you can't afford, just move along and find something else.No one is forcing you.

July 15, 2012 at 5:02 PMrexx

For the past weeks , the Star has been incessantly harping on the blatant raping of the hills and greenery in Penang by the developers building high-rise condos and blaming the state goverment for approving the projects that penangites residents are against … today we see the Star unashamedly extolling the “stylish living” that comes with the purchase of these exorbitantly priced high-rise condos !
What a paradox…. “the people’s paper “ ? not anymore …. disgraceful !

March 4, 2013 at 3:19 PMsub-sales owner

Gurney Paragon, nice location for now and will be gone soon on the new reclaim land by the new state government. What a shame and it is very noisy also staying in this kind of tourist areas with all the pub and F&B outlets noise. Anyway, some people like it very much.

August 1, 2013 at 9:16 PMwilliam

now that the soft launch of the paragon mall has taken place, the outlook of the 2 residence towels is much more positive and clear.The demand to own or live in is extremely great, the value much appreciated (double the original price). The developer has great hope for the property and has put in allot of effort and money to prompt up the place. This is a win win case .
