Any advice on the pricing of this property?

Hillcrest was not ready in December 2008, as said. It may be ready for occupation around December 2009.

Not sure whether it's worth for RM700K++ luxury condo with leasehold status. But for sure the environment is nice.

Went and see the showroom last week i should say its pretty well done indeed the facilities is superb!!! All the finishing is a class of its own indeed

The land is leasehold..when will the lease period start and end ? What will happen to my condo after the lease period expire ? How will the value of my condo depreciate as the expiry date of the lease is approaching

Good News to all Hill Crest Residence Owner. OC obtained 27 March 2010 for Tower 1 & 2. Tower 2 open for sale then. For the time being it is a leasehold property but the developer in the midst with PDC of converting to freehold.
First step must get the OC obtained and later do the conversion. All property in Bukit Jambul previously belong to PDC a state Gov subsidary and will be converted soon. thanks

Condo is very nice, but price not very nice with the leasehold status, and environment near Fairview must sometimes have traffic jam because there are also a lot of bungalows there.

I think the condo is a little too overpriced.It comes with leasehold status,furthermore you could buy one of those houses in SP Setia,or own a big bungalow in Juru Heights...this one is definetely outta my range.

August 2, 2010 at 12:09 AMLeong

Anyone know why there has no occupancy yet although OC has been obtained on 27 March 2010?

April 22, 2011 at 6:02 AMmax

It must be crazy to spend 900K for a LEASEHOLD condo.

The speculators in this condo are not very smart.

May 9, 2011 at 6:12 PMalan

I think this is a good example of cannot sell cannot rent at this moment.

May 10, 2011 at 12:24 AMChoo Heng

Just thinking on what earth this leasehold condo could cost the same amount as compared to a same size freehold terrace in a prime area. And more than 200k more than freehold condo like the view. i would appreciate if i could get some logic behind.

May 20, 2011 at 5:56 AMlim

I saw asking price is dropping to 790K.

Still not worth to buy a Leasehold condo at this price.

Speculators were speculated by developer.

I understand that most of the landed on Bkt Jambul belong to Federal Government? No change to convert to Freehold?

August 6, 2011 at 12:03 PMPPT

HOw is the condo doing lately? WHats the market rate now?

January 3, 2012 at 5:47 AMnyonyanoodle

Asking price now dropped to as low as RM630k nego.


Thats RM100K below initial launch price back at start of 2008!!!!!

Seems the original buyers miscalculated badly on this leasehold investment.

January 21, 2012 at 8:52 PMMK

What is the price Now?

January 21, 2012 at 11:38 PMRafael

Yet people are still buying for investment "the address" which is opposite of hillcrest. Goodluck to those lucky buyers for investment.

April 17, 2012 at 8:01 PMDK

seems like the price is still ~RM800k in mudah..
if it is ~rm650k i would definitely be interested

May 29, 2012 at 2:35 PMPG kia

Seems a good place for own stay, with spacious and nice landscape, and superb facilities. What was the price transaction recently?

September 3, 2012 at 12:15 AMpetestop

New Bob Realty is aggressively promoting it as their marketing agent lately.

Saw them in couple of property shows the past few weeks.

Wonder why this place still have quite a few unsold units after so long. Could it because of leasehold ? or the weird layout ?
