I'm staying in Jelutong area and I can see Harmony View from my balcony. It's going up nicely. The progress is however so so only.

The main problem with staying in Jelutong is the community. One can say the community here is not the preferred type. Notorious drivers and bikers. Last time, Jelutong area is famous as gansgter town. So I think you can grasp a bit of the idea of the community here.

However, the plus side of it is that the location is good. Near to Greenlane, which is almost in the middle of Penang island. Going anywhere will not be a problem.

Hi to the anonymous who is planning to invest in Harmony View,

I personally would not think that Harmony View is a good investment due to the community in which it is situated. However, it is up to individual. You have to do more homework and decide for yourself.

Yes, you are right. For certain low cost, you need to be eligible to purchase. It depends on your monthly income. However, I'm not sure if this applies with Harmony View and what is the bracket.

Good luck with your investment!

The location is good and also near to wet & dry market. High floor has nice view and unblock. Good for those has small family or young couple. Worth to buy...but heard that sold out already.

 
July 8, 2008 at 3:00 PMAnonymous

Heard that the developer has opened some unit for sale but the price is RM150++. You can contact the developer directly to confirm. Their no. 04-2821999

realist said...allow me to share my experience wt all in choosing the right property to buy (a costly lesson i learnt in 1997/98 crisis) - the Location, Developer's Record, Building Design and its Quality Management are the key elements - Now, you may ask WHY? All these Elements = $$$$$$ appreciation!

That's what every home owners expect & your property could only appreciate wt a well design building & proper brand status to its development that comes along with good maintenance/property management - if we may compare wt other similar development completed by the developer. It's just a waste for those who spent on interior upgrade without considering those criteria as mentioned. This is where as buyers, we would tend to lose our cash flow in renovation. Another reminder is not to allow UNQUALIFIED contractor to renovate our homes - just ask how many are regitered wt CIBD? These're the people that'd cause more damage to our property in the long run - we need to be reminded that all wet areas in our apartments are water proved & the layer could be damaged easily by illegal hacking.

NEVER ALLOW YR CONTRACTOR TO USE JACK HAMMER unless you are prepared to pay for the damages to yr neighbour's unit caused by the vibration!

Spending on interior package would't help to appreciate your property value, the key element is its building design vs the value of the property. If you look @ Kheng Tian apartment, there're units sold @ RM160K where the original price was around RM100K - the building design commands the market value.

As for the location itself, Perak Road & Jelutong area now consist of growing families wt school going children - gone are the days of gangland area & you may say that it's going thru a transition period of development.

So to all of you who've bought at Harmony View - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

This property increase a lot from 125k to 155k now. Increase 30k just around half year. I do think that this property can hit 180k in future.

 
July 30, 2008 at 3:53 PMAnonymous

This is supposed to be a low medium cost apartment. How come the developer can price it so high? Is there no law to control the pricing? With such a pricing, it defeat the govt purpose for low income earners to buy a house. Even if we save enough for downpayment, will we be eligible for bank loan with our low salary? Can someone help to justify this!!

 
August 8, 2008 at 12:46 AMAnonymous

actually, the developer call up me saying that they offering me to purchase the bumilot with 163k something...
however, the s&p was only stating down the purchase price was only 72,500...the price stating in s&p was half of the price that i pay only!!!
will this seems rediculous???
is that they marl up the price their own???

 
August 9, 2008 at 10:00 AMAnonymous

To all customers and purchasers out there, I have done lots of survey of some apartments in Penang, i find it worth to buy even if this property has gone up to 180k-200k. The location is superb and very convenient and the current market price is there. Now they are selling at 163k onwards and it's still resonable as currently the contstruction material is still goin up. The developer has got their trademark like Symphony Park and Taman Kheng Tian. I am sure it's a good invesment as well.

 
August 9, 2008 at 10:09 AMAnonymous

I stays at Jelutong area and i can see Harmony View goin up very fast and i can foresee it will be completed by end of this year..

 
August 9, 2008 at 11:22 AMAnonymous

hey guys, I happy that i brought harmony view instead of sri saujana and other properties because as you can see the value of the property and management that they had.

I compare harmony view apartments and other develop apartment around jelutong and perak rd but still the quality of harmony view is there.

Take a look at symphony park and taman kheng tian!! take a look at desa green and sri wangsa!!

Everyday while i go back home i don't to see my apartment dirty and shit inside the lif. I want a clean place to stay and a good well management too.

 
August 9, 2008 at 12:11 PMAnonymous

Is it the demand for the property that push-up the price or is it the developer that increase the price on their own?? If it's bcoz of demand, then the market value will definitely going up. But if it's only adjusted by developer themselves, what is the secondary market value? If we were to purchase today at such a high cost, how much more can we earn for a 665sq ft apartment/flat?

And as written above, the so called upgrading is even more expensive than the unit itself.

 
August 10, 2008 at 1:17 AMAnonymous

do you all sure that this 665sqf of apt in this kind of community area will hit 180-200k of value??

for tmn kheng tian and symphony park, i think that they already hit the maximum price already!!

even if it really hit the price of such high, i think this is for the developer to mark upthe price their own. this kind of small unit and surrounding by this kind of community, do you think got people willing to purchase it at a high price of 200k??

furthermore, the s&p price is only stating 72.5k!!may be last time is worth to perchase it at around 120 to 150k, but not now..

what you guys thinks??

 
August 11, 2008 at 12:11 PMAnonymous

I think it's worth it for me because we cant predict next year the pricing for all the propreties going to look alike.

Again, as we open up newspaper everyday the pricing for steel and building material all going up too, so how you going to predict all the future properties going to have by now. It's unpredictable guys!!

Actually, as you can see in market although all the price going up but still people have to survive & spending. For example you can see in the beginning while the oil price goes up most of the coffee no peoples and supermarket but after awhile now people start going and they still have to eat.Again, no matter how high the price would be but still you want a house to stay too.So, that is the demand come in.

However,it is the way of how you look at the things in your life ?different people look at what they want in their life.It's about what you want? What your budget are? Where u what to stay? What is your lifestyle you want? what kind of place you want to stay?

Dear buyers or investors out there!!

here's my comment as a buyer for Harmony View, I hv done some studies on property like Symphony Park, Taman Kristal, etc..da market value has oredi gone up to min 180k (for lower floor) - 200k plus (higher floors. As for Tmn Kheng Tian, da subsale value has gone up from 160k (min) to 180k onwards.

By the end of the day, I think it's not da built up of the unit tat counts..most important is quality of the whole scheme and the appreciation of the price on the property. wat do u guys think? anybody agree with me??

Some ppl might found tat 665sq is very small and some might find it ok cos it's still affordable. We can't all to the developer on the increasing price cos this is Penang..everyone knew da land cost is expensive, especially town area..and moreover construction materials n everything has increased the price..

Bout the spa..it's under low medium cost apartment and it's stated 72.5k..and even developer is selling at 163k now, if the market value is not there, den how can we as a buyer get our loan approved? The bank for sure look at the value of the property and approved our loan, if the value is not there for sure they'll reject our loan.

This is 1st time i encounter bout tis blog and to my opinion, can't really believe wat ppl said bout any projects..best things is go visit the showroom yourself...

cheers!!!!

 
August 12, 2008 at 1:37 PMAnonymous

dunno who is this guy and just saying all the nice words for belleview...
i only know that this developer is UN-ETHICAL by selling the low medium cost apartment at 120K++. Purchasers are FORCED to buy the upgrading package by paying 50K extra. That is a lot.
This is violating the law and the purpose of low medium cost apartment.

 
August 12, 2008 at 2:01 PMkuan

i bought one intermediate unit at RM125 last year. The upgrade package is NOT worth RM50k.And I heard that we can't use our contractor to renovate house, must use Belleview appointed contracter with more higher price.

 
August 12, 2008 at 5:01 PMAnonymous

be neutral...by end of the day, it's willing buyer, willing seller..believe someone out there will understand if they've got the knowledge bout property, especially in penang!!

 
August 12, 2008 at 11:44 PMAnonymous

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.

August 13, 2008 at 1:48 AMAnonymous

the property pricewas been mark up so high right now...
one of the major reason is because of fuel price increase lead to the inflation in malaysia.

how about the fuel price been lower down at september? will that have any changes to the market?

 
August 13, 2008 at 5:59 PMAnonymous

To Harmony View Owner,

I'm once of the owner of this apt, i also think about the renovation problem, because i hear from my fren they told a lot of new complete apt/condo in penang, the owner there must use the renovation people is stand by at there, so i hope the harmony view owner can say about your thinking and comment.

fr.ccc

 
August 15, 2008 at 5:36 PMAnonymous

yar..i agreed tat it would only happen to most projects in penang..i don't face such problems when i bought property at KL..

 
August 17, 2008 at 2:46 PMAnonymous

Damn, what kind of community over here. Luckily I went and do some survey before I decide to buy a property over here. I went there ard 7am and 6pm. The nallow road is congested like hell. All illegal hawker along the road.
I surrender. Maybe I can not stand for that kind of community and environment. Like uneducated people,or worse gangters "samseng".
Sorry if my langauge is too heavy, but really can not accept.

 
August 18, 2008 at 5:06 PMAnonymous

it's cheap. what do you expect ? where can you find apartment less than 160K with facilities including swiming pool?

 
August 18, 2008 at 9:52 PMAnonymous

Sorry, You mean "Harmony View " got swiming pool?

 
August 20, 2008 at 2:20 PMAnonymous

come on guys, harmony view was not having a swimming pool..
furthermore, i dont think is cheap ok...the built up was only 665sqf....
further that is declare as a low cost apt at govt site....
so, you all still think that worth that much???

 
August 20, 2008 at 2:48 PMAnonymous

And easy way to judge if the property is over/under priced is thru price per square feet. So, for a 160000/665= RM240.50 psf. That's certainly the price of entry level medium cost condo. Another way to evaluate: RM160000 loan for say 30 yrs, how much monthly installment? around 900. Can harmony view rent out at 950 + maintenance fee + loan interest rate? which is around RM1300 per month? I afraid very challenging here, then we judge by value appreciation. Can this condo claim secondary market value like landed property (i.e. a 1 million landed almost rented out at rm1.5k per month in Penang, but their sub-sale price is high). Conclusion, the math can give us the answer, no point argue and hurt the harmony.

 
August 21, 2008 at 12:19 AMAnonymous

Mmm, sometimes I wonder whether Penang Properties will be like Hong Kong. If yes, Harmony View will definitely worth buying..

 
August 21, 2008 at 12:58 AMAnonymous

Haha, malaysia property (refer to KL condo avg) is USD1400 psm while HK is +USD17k psm. In asia, we rank 2nd, from bottom la (better than indonesia, but mynmar not included.. Cambodia/filiphine/thailand all higher). One day la, lim guan eng will return us what we deserved.

So, is harmony view over priced? If our economy can be improved in these few yrs, rm160k is cheap. Do you realized that nowadays, <700 sq.ft project is very rare. Sure Harmony view have it own market.

Just for reference: during my last visit to a small scale property fair at PISA (around june'08??), i nearly registered to a medium cost semi-gov apartment located at Perak road, cost only 90k for 700 sq.ft. Condition to buy is salary below 2k per month.

 
August 21, 2008 at 8:51 AMAnonymous

90K is with or without car park and renovation ?

I think you are referring to Lavander park right ?

 
August 21, 2008 at 9:03 AMee

malaysia will never be like HK, Singapore or even Thailand...cos the population is relatively low...
don't be fooled by those property analysts saying that malaysia property is way too cheap compared to HK and Singapore.

 
August 21, 2008 at 12:14 PMAnonymous

Can anyone recomend some other projects that is worth to buy around RM150K price tag other than this project ?.

I don't know any other projects that's y thought of buying this one.

 
August 21, 2008 at 3:12 PMAnonymous

Sorry, i don't remember, but that's was an abandoned apartment restored by this bumi owned company. They asked me to register with MPKK before i can book one, monthly salary have to be below RM1.5k (forgot). And, it come without car park, no swimming pool. Just an basic apartment.

 
August 22, 2008 at 4:52 PMAnonymous

it's not an abundant project..it's a newly built project and it's not owned by bumi company..their company name is Belleview Group

 
August 22, 2008 at 5:20 PMAnonymous

Wah then worth to buy. Bellview project quality not bad.

 
August 22, 2008 at 6:29 PMAnonymous

Hello, have i missed something? We're comparing this Harmony View Condo to an similar project at Jelutong (700 sq.ft, 90k), build by a bumi company. Please read the others sharing with a open mind, not emotion. Thanks.

 
August 26, 2008 at 2:44 PMAnonymous

Actually, there are currently a few low-med cost apartment in Perak Road / Jelutong area. For most, you have to register at Komtar and salary (whether individual or combined) must be less than RM3k.

Must admit that most of the apartment does not have much facilities. The most security and car park unlike Harmony View where they provide you with gym, and some sort of a recreational park. However, i'm not very sure that the apartment is the worth the buy at this moment. In my opinion, the price is just too high for this type/size apartment. And with the salary range, how many med-range people can afford to buy these properties?

Unless you're buying for own stay, if you are buying for investment, you should re-think the bank loan cost and future market value.

 
November 3, 2008 at 9:19 PMbubuzz

may I know harmony view still worth for invest?

 
November 12, 2008 at 3:44 PMjayson

bubuzz,

sure is good for invest .

cause now my broke told me the price can come to 160k.
those who bold form phase 1 now i think can earn 30-40k.
incase you want to the investment must make it faster.. you also can contract the BELLEVIEW PROPERTIS office.

Good luck

 
December 20, 2008 at 4:30 PMAnonymous

harmony view's maintenance fee is only RM110 plus sinking fund RM11 per month...total RM121 per month..

 
December 30, 2008 at 4:14 PMgoD

the maintenance fee is a bit higher...

the harmony view is below 200k so can say as a apartment, but you can get the environment like condo..

so you can use your calculator to see whether which one is more better...

 
December 31, 2008 at 2:06 PMAnonymous

do anyone have this units measurement?

 
January 2, 2009 at 11:42 AMYoungDurian

I THINK AT $163k IS TOO HIGH. lOOK IT ONLY HAS 1 toilet and works out to $250 a sq ft for a medium cost. Platino luxury apartment goes for $380 a sq ft. Go figure. Further if sales agreement says $65. It means they are trying to slell low in paper for evading taxes! You don't want to get into trouble with this under table tactics!!! Be careful.

 
January 16, 2009 at 4:47 PMwilliam

220k coner unit reno. is it too high? should i go for it?

 
January 17, 2009 at 7:16 PMEe Yun

am a owner of Symphony park, purchased and was able to rent out immediately.Rental RM650 for unfurnished unit.Then when Belleview promote Harmony View, my sister purchase the unit due to the low-med cost requirement. We did a quick check on if any rooms for rent at Symphony Park / Kheng Tien, the guard told us,its quite difficult. So, again, i would say its a good place to rent out, but to stay...i would say its quite 'packed' but food is easily accessible with amenities. so pros and cons.

 
January 19, 2009 at 9:42 AMP

Wow!!RM330 per sqft for Mid cost aprt if based on the selling price of RM220k.Now economic is down turn and stock market also drop but this project price is keep going up.More expensive than THE COVE (Super Condo)

 
February 3, 2009 at 11:25 AMCharmaine

To All investor,

If it is not mistaken, the low-med cost apartment need atleast FIVE years service contract for minimum for you in order to sell off your apartment, if any body experience in TMN Kheng Tian they should know the rule, Title name cannot be change after u sell or purchase, the new owner need to wait for 5Years.

 
February 17, 2009 at 12:17 AMStephy

hi, can anyone provide me the mailing address for the harmony view???
thanks...

 
February 18, 2009 at 7:52 AMcalvin

asking for rental or buying will defitnely not worth it.

 
March 3, 2009 at 10:34 PMVincent Beh

for those looking for low med cost, apart from Harmony, turn ur head to look at lavender at lrg. perak. its due to complete soon, check out the site, impressive fast project with good feature for an affordable price and most importantly low maintenance fees(less than RM50). somehow it is award winning project for low med cost houses.

 
April 24, 2009 at 6:13 PMSoh

anyone can advise me that Harmony View Contractor pricing reasonable not ?
Thanks a lot .

 
April 25, 2009 at 11:04 PMLKL
