There is this issue brought up by someone that there is an approved cemetary that the developers have 'forgotten' to inform housebuyers in its midst. I think the location is close to the bukit rimau border and it is in kota kemuning.

Hi CoryFan,

I lived in Kota Kemuning for 7 years and here's some of my views about it. I will not touch on the positive points, as they are visible as you drive around the township or look at HGamuda's sales brochures.

1) Still lacking in ammenities & convenience despite township more than 7 years old;
2) Choice of schools/kinde limited (no colleges or varsities yet);
3) One way in/out (as long as Bkt Rimau interchange is not ready);
4) Traffic jams during morning peak hours seems to be more prevalent lately
(Jams mainly due to KESAS bottleneck at Proton interchange)
5) It's under Shah Alam Municipality (MBSA), ie. all modes of entertainment is strictly prohibited;
6) Heavily poluted with choking thick smoke at times (especially during dry season) as open-burning is still actively undertaken by irresponsible folks living around the periphery of Kota Kemuning township;
7) Depending on which phase you're interested in, there are houses which has bad roof leakage problems (due to either design or construction fault) & cases of obvious floor cracks (possibly due to cut-and-fill land not properly compacted).

As for Kemuning Utama, all I can say is that this entire project sits on low land despite land being filled by the developer, Paramount Bhd. This area used to flood during heavy downpours before Paramount developed it. Its main Entry & Exit is shared with Kota Kemuning's one way in/out road into KESAS - can't imagine how this road & its roundabout can handle such heavy traffic load when more occupants starts to shift into the area...

Finally, I'm not against anyone buying/renting in Kota Kemuning or Kemuning Utama, as both townships have their upsides too. Nevertheless, the above points should be taken into serious thought before a pricy decision is made. :)

Yes, a muslim cemetary. The signboard went up several days ago.
It is surrounded by residential houses and a school. The residents are now collecting signatures for a petition. The land ( for the cemetery) is about 10 feet above road level. Worse affected are those houses across the road from it, mostly corner lots...their upstairs are about the same level as the cemetary ground, perfect view of the dead standing on the balcony or looking out through the side windows of the masterbedrooms and the backrooms.

That piece of land can be considered prime land for any commercial or residential development.

Why the town planners saw fit to locate a cemetary among the living in a modern township like KK is mind boggling.

The developer will have a lot to answer for to their customers. How much value do you think those properties drop overnight after the signboard went up ?

There is still hope if MBSA and the developer can come to their senses and relocate the cemetary to a more peaceful resting ground for the departed ones since nobody has been buried yet.

Apart from this, KK is a beautiful place to live in.

If it is under MPSA, there is the restriction of dogs too. So if you are dog lover, look at puchong or subang nearby.

MPSJ has less restriction on other things too as compared to MPSA.

I know someone who has a corner lot that is just across the road from the coming cemetary. I think the only consolation is that it would be very quiet. If they do hear voices/strange sounds it has to be those number junkies. To think that they had spent a few hundred k renovating their house, instantly down the drain as no one would buy from them even if they want to sell. I think that the cemetary land was gazetted even before gamuda came in,only think that it was not highlighted as a feature of the housing estate!!!

Typical of citizens of Bolehland. Have you looked around at the number of "for sale" houses lately. You can have plenty of choice nowadays choose one you like & comfortable with, you may pay a bit more but at least you know you are buying a house instead of buying a promise.if everyone still wants to support the developers then a lot of you are going to get disappointed again & again. you pay tru your nose to the bank & down the road you can't stay in the building you bought. read the thread on the poor guy who took a loan from stanchart & learn something from his mistake. don't support those MCA goons (developers).houses are getting cheaper by the day & why pay 5-7% more to those discrimating developers.I will like to see the day when theses developers say prices are the same for all purchasers but will they? high hopes so refrain from buying at least for the next 1-3 years & let us see if they are willing to change :p :p :p hi don't wory i am not an estate agent out to make money from you poor guys by convincing you to purchase completed/old buildings & houses.

A very good lesson for everyone is to beware of empty plots of land. It may even be a playground and the developer may just sell the playground to someone to build a kindergarden or something like that. This happened in usj11 where a kindergarden was build over what was previously a playground and there were even plans to build a hawker center in part of what is now the playground.The developers maintain the line that by not telling what they know it does not mean that they are lying. Let the buyers beware. Look out for places of worship, hawker centers,and now cemeteries being built in your friendly housing estate!!

Hawker centres are not so bad because they don't have loudspeakers which may wake you up when you are in deep sleep. Cemeteries alone is not bad until they attract drug addicts or people who look for quick fortunes. :D

That is why I learnt my lesson and only look for completed houses with no large plot of vacant land nearby.

Ignore all the advertisements and the media hype over the new property launches and all the bull. The market is such that there is a lot of properties on the market and here I am talking about ready houses, housses you can walk around. Get a feel of the neighbourhood. Go there during the peak hours. Normally agents will take you there when its off peak. Before committing, walk around the neighbourhood, talk to the neighbours, drive around looking for vacant land nearby. If it is within sight, forget it, you never know what may be built on it. Things gazetted may be de gazetted later. Dont take the risk. Look for tell tale signs of termite infestations and most of all talk to friends who live in the area. houses are invariably life time commitments for most of us and we do not want to end up screwed. You may have to pay a little extra but the extra is worth every cent

Yes. Come into KK from Kesas and go 12 o'clock on the first 2 roundabouts. On reaching the 3rd. roundabout. make a 3 o'clock turn. Then you will come to another small roundabout, 3 o'clock again. Drive about 1/2 km, on your left you should see a new signpost that says "Perkuburan Islam ".( spelling ?)

Hi,

Thank you all for the comments. The reason I am asking is I had paid a 10% deposit for a corner unit in Kemuning Utama (subject to finance) :) .

I am now in Brisbane Australia, the reasons I choose Kemuning Utama is that my brother had bought one there and I thought is great to stay near to each other.

I did own a aquarium business in the Kota Kemuning (those shops at the first roundabout, opposite to McDonald). and I do quite like the atmosphere there.

Anyway. Thanks again.

If you have already paid for the house, then don't waste your time regretting the purchase. Let the house be completed and then go and see if you still like the place. If you do, then its ok. If not then put it in the market. You should not lose too much sleep over a matter that has already been decided.

I heard this from someone who bought a house in Kota Kemuning, it is shocking and I wonder if it is a one off case or a common occurence. I hope someone can comment on it.
Apparently, there is a gang that is collecting protection money from all householders in Kota Kemuning, they collect RM80 a month. The person who told me this, said they approached her when she was inspecting her house which was just completed, and told her that everybody living there has to pay.
Can someone comment on this?

I know of people paying, but that is for a gated community. It could be just a misunderstanding - provide the location / road, it would then be easier to comment.

Kemuning utama is at the entrance so it is far far away from the cemetary. So no worries there for our friend. My point is since he has committed to buying the house, then switch off and live life until the house is completed and then you can see what you want to do with it.

Never heard of it. There could be a mis-communication, as some parts of Kota Kemuning does have home guard services employed by residents. Anyhow, do check with the local police station if suspect otherwise. :)

I thought it was too far fetched myself, but I was told that the Klang area, particularly Taman Sri Andalas which is near to Kota Kemuning is a hotbed for gangs and not very well policed. Klang has a bad reputation for criminal activities, I believe because of the relatively worse off residents and the closing of estates in the area, resulting in many unemployed.

ccy2000,

for a 22x75 with kitchen cabinets, and basic reno....in KK, i think this would be in the ballpark currently. Prices for residential properties in the mid range are quite flat at the moment throughout the Klang Valley. High-end properties are in fact the ones that are appreciating at the moment. If you need assurance, you could call a couple of local KK real estste agents and ask them...normally they are helpful unless you meet a nasty a**hole.

Just a word of advice,,,,dont just consider price alone.

The feel factor ( to me anyway) is very important. If you buy a property cheaper than market price by say 20K , but somehow, don't feel happy or comfortable with the house or the location, it is not worth it. Wake up every morning and going home every evening with a feeling that you have made a mistake can be quite frustrating.
You need this "feel good" factor about the house and the location/neighbourhood. Otherwise, don't buy it. This is not about fung-shui.
Take your time on the property and the location before making this very important decision.
Good luck and looking forward to welcome you to KK.

penangkia,

Yup you are right, buying a house isn't all about the price, especially for own stay...there is nothing worst than wake up every morning and regret about buying a wrong house, how true.

For your info, the RM323K house is the newly completed Kemuning Utama 22x75 by Paramount, is a bare unit.

Frankly i'm not a local USJ/Subang/KK folk, i used to live in KL (Condo) and now that newly-wed and planning to have a child in the future, we decided to settle down on landed property with (hopefuly) Chinese school nearby.

i have been thinking about few other place before, and security somehow become my top priority. Kemuning Utama is gated with guard house, although it's not as same class with those truely gated & guarded community like Valencia, Desa Parkcity and Tanamera. Damasara Indah also guarded, but it's leasehold...

i heard about the traffic condition at the peak hour at KK, it's ok for me as i'm work-at-home type; i also notice there is a muslim cemetery issue but i think there is a distance from Kemuning Utama; and the plus point for me is the new Chinese pimary school to be relocated there. (i'm Chinese educated, my English is poor but i still want my children to learn Chinese) :)

Mr/Mrs penangkia, from your reply i can know that you are informed, knowlegedable and have experience enough to share, is there anything i need to know should i decided to commit?

i have been there few times before to view the house, generally i have a good feeling about the place, but as you said, now the mid range property market is softening (some even said it's buying market now), so i'm taking my time...

thanks for giving your opinion & advise, as a (potential) newcomer to KK, i'm so glad you care to share.

I did not have the time to read every contribution here, so my apologies if I am repeating some ideas...

I compare KK with USJ and I see a major difference. KK does not have may commercial facilities. It is nice and quiet for residential needs but if you needed to go shopping or do some banking, it has to be a trip elsewhere. In USJ we have all the facilities we need ... go to Taipan and the USJ9 Business Center - you can find branches of almost every bank you may have an account with. There are a number of postal service centers - post office in Subang Jaya, mail collection centers in SJ and USJ, smaller post office in petrol station, Carrefour and Giant hypermart. Then the hypermarts of course, with Tesco and Jaya Jusco just outside the border in Puchong. Shopping complexes in Sunway Pyramid, Subang Parade, Summit, IOI Puchong and they have their cineplexes as well. Love futsal? There are a number within SJ/USJ.

I know you said you work at home. With that, traffic for work is not your problem. So staying in SJ/USJ isn't a negative factor as far as traffic jams go. Think of the benefits of the public amenities!

If you want to live near chinese school, you can live near puchong with a new spanking chinese school soon. It is also much nearer to KL than kota kemuning.

Kota kemuning is more for those retired people who prefer the slow and quiet life. :D

hi kwchang

i totally agree with you, one thing people much talk about KK is the lack of commercial facilities and public amenities...I have done a survey, there is 1 Petronas, 1 small Post Office, 1 McD and 1 Hong Leong Bank and few 'kedai runcit' out there...just barely enough for daily need. (1 agent told me Maybank & Public Bank are now renoveted their outlet, but i don't know how true it is).

if i wish to go shopping or leisure, i still have to go to SJ/USJ or elsewhere. in term of convenience and variety, SJ/USJ wins hands down.

actually, i prefer SJ/USJ address rather than SA, but there is 2 things hold me back about SJ/USJ...(correct me if i'm wrong)

1) Security, my top priority. if given choice, i prefer living in the gated community instead of 'open' Taman. i know maybe some area in SJ/USJ the residents commitees has employ their own security patrol, but somehow i'm more confident in the gated concept with single entry point and perimeter fencing the whole housing area. (false sense of security?)

this will cause some inconvenience for in/out & relatives visit, but this is something i willing to live with.

2) pricing (or budget). i think Kemuning Utama is cheaper in term of sq.ft, some more, it's a new house. the house in SJ/USJ area started to getting older.

i doubt i'm able to get same build-up 22x75 (2176 sq.ft) with RM323K in SJ/USJ area.i know there is new USJ area (USJ20-27?) come with gated concept, but it's out of my budget (started from RM360K i guess?)

having said that, kwchang, if you were me, as a newcomer with RM323K, what is your personal preference in SJ/USJ area?

it's so great that there is a SJ/USJ insider to share info with, TQ.

Hi pucman,

If you are looking for a gated community in a bustling environment near to a chinese school, you can look at Mutiara Puchong which is just next to TESCO puchong. It is a new house but the price may be out of your budget as it is located on prime land. But do some survey first.

But if you are looking at a slow and quiet life, then shah alam is more suited for you. Quiet means you don't live near a loudspeaker area. ;)

hi Pucman,

thanks for your info, the Mutiara Puchong u mention is Malton's project right? if i'm not mistaken, it's a leasehold land...if given choice, i still will go for freehold first.

well, according to Paramount's master plan & site plan, there is no 'loudspeaker area' near by, and there is no vacant plot nearby either...don't know lah, hopfully there is no any 'vital information' hidden by the developer...just looked at what Gamuda do to the KK folks on the muslim cemetary issue... :(

Before you make a decision on the house , it pays to drive around the vicinity at different time of the day. Observe what industries are there as invariably they may splurge pollutant much to your dismay. Look out for empty plot of land , strip of land that may have been reserve for some development at a later stage. The traffic situation n public transportation that may ply that area if you may rely on the later.
Talk to the neighbour if possible as you do not want a nasty neighbour to deal with that will raise the blood pressure.
The most important is how do you or your family feel when you visit the house. Feels warm n good or chilly n spooky...:eek:

There is a piece of land just across the road and another piece of leasehold land just beside Kemuning Utama. Not sure how it will be developed as it doesn't belong to the developer.

Kemuning Utama is riding on the developers success in Kedah. I believe you are referring to Phase 1A of Bayu where handover is currently in progress. From what I have seen, the quality of the end product is totally different from the show house and it appears to be a rush job before the completion deadline is up. No doubt the developer will rectify the defects but with current WIP and completed units being rectified, it will be some time before anyone moves in.

There are numerous speculators who bought the 1st phase and the price you mentioned is not actually bargain of the century. You should be able to get a better deal if you shop around - and there are indeed plenty of options. If I am not mistaken, the original launching price was around $270k+, depending on North or South facing.

As for petrol stations, there are Exxon-Mobil, Shell and Petronas on both sides of the highway entering and leaving Kemuning Utama. Banks- when is the last time you step into a bank, except for the ATM kiosks, which is also available at those petrol stations.

It is just a matter of time before there is critical mass for businesses to move into the commercial lots. But being MPSA territory, you can't expect KTM (Kuda, Toto & Magnum) or anything randy. In the meantime, you just get to appreciate the calm and tranquility of the area, and the gated community might reduce the possibility of any "uninvited" stalkers.

i've been searching at that area (KU) for about a month, so far the cheapest i can get from agent is RM325K, most of them are RM328K & RM330K for ph1. i only manage to get this RM323K unit direct from the owner... the developer price for ph1 is RM283K (facing north) & RM288K (facing south, according to the agents).

although the mid-range market is softening, still not many owner willing to let go if there is not their idea price...

Maybe i should wait for another few months and see how...

SunwayKid
03-05-2006, 03:39 PM
If I am not mistaken, there are 4 phases in Phase 1, i.e. 1A, 1B, 1C & 1D. The price increases by about $10-$15k for each phase.

In a rising interest rate regime, not many speculators will continue to hold on to their units and once there are more supply, I suspect prices will come down as not many owners will want to continue to pay for the maintainence fees for a community they are not living in.

Depending on the type of loan, there is a penalty for early prepayment and if you could negotiate with the speculator / bank to continue getting a loan from the same bank, thereby avoiding the penalty. You could then get a win-win situation and share the savings.

My personal observation is that where supply exceeds demand, it is possible to get a unit for below RM320k -just offer the price and let the speculators via their agents get back to you. Alternatively, go direct. The logic being that if you can get a unit for $325k and the agent gets a minimum 2% commission, naturally, if you deal direct with the owner, it should be less.

if i'm not mistaken, the proposed SKVE that connects Putrajaya @ the LDP/Putrajaya interchange to Pulau Indah will pass behind Kota Kemuning/Greenhills area. if there's an interchange there, maybe it'll help to reduce the ever present jam on Kesas from Bkt Rimau toll till Hicom exit.

ccy2000, if you like SJ/USJ area, you still can get a double storey house with 22x75 at around RM310-320K in USJ.
If you look & seach harder, you even can get it in SJ area as I have been calling the realestate agents & looking at the classified everyday for almost a month in April'06. Happy viewing!

Yup, i feel the same way too, come Aug/Sep this year, new phase will be ready to handover and i belive more speculators will out to look for buyer...it is possible for me to get a unit for below RM320k if i deal direct with the owner...

Does anyone know anything about this higway ? Is it still on or an abandoned project?

You are right, I think this project has the potential to ease a lot of traffic along the KESAS, around the Hicom and Kemajuan interchange

CCY2000...as usual any new place would not have the amenities and conveniences of an established township...however this would only change as time goes.

The same was said about USJ when it was first started and the only big exit was to go through SJ and then on to Federal Highway which was and still is famous for its jam. Along came Kesas which cut right next to USJ which brought all the excitement right to it doorsteps. Years ago, I still remember that the shoplots at Taipan was at the few hundred thousand marks and it has well exceeded the million dollar mark now. Kudos to those that were willing to go against the tide and critism of buying at USJ when everyone else was saying that the amenities was better elsewhere. They are reaping the rewards now especially the corner lot owners who can sell theirs and upgrade at almost no cost or minimal cost to a semi-d.......

Well, as was mentioned earlier by someone else, the most important thing is how you feel about the property yourself and in the end don't over analyse. Sometimes you just need to go with your gut feelings after taking everything into consideration.

KK now is so much different since 4 years ago. Eventhough it is not as develop as USJ but the road system is much better and wider. I like the quiet atmosphere and and current facilities are sufficient for the current population. Unlike Taipan which is congested and busy, KK commercial areas is such a breeze.

i can feel that maybe there is some owner rushing to exit lately...? as rising BLR will effect the real estate speculator.

Generally i have good feeling about KK/KU, quiet atmosphere and and surrounding...anyone care to confirm for me there is broardband internet services (streamyx) out there? :)

As I have mentioned before in another thread, I personally find that the eastern precint where Bayu, Permai and Palma is located to be better in terms of environment and quiteness but it does not mean that the western side is lacking as the commercial area is over there with a mall confirmed coming up in the next couple of years and also KFC/Pizza Hut being built over there.

And yes, I can safely confirm that broadband is available here as proven by this current posting.

Hello. I'm new to this blog. Please help me here.
I'm looking for a house in KU Bayu Phase 2. The asking price for 22x75 is about RM350k and 24x75 is about RM370k. If I'm not mistaken, the lauching price was RM303k and RM32X respectively.
I think the asking prices are set too high by the agents. Anyone know the actual transacted price recently?

Depends on the phase you are buying - phase 1A was the first launching and the cheapest. Each subsequent phase, the developer increased the price by RM5k-RM10k if I am not mistaken for Bayu series. The cheapest first phase at launching was slightly less than RM300k, depending on North or South facing.

There are plenty of units around and it is a buyer's market, with more completed units being handed over. Shop around - make an offer you are comfortable with and let the seller decide.

Sold my 24 x 75 unit at RM370k but heard that subsequent sale when down to as low as $350k. Juz offer the price you want to the agent and they will let the seller make the decisions. After all, these agent only eyes for quick return and most of the time stand on the buyer's side, despite it is the seller who pays for their fees. That's my experience with property agent.

Regarding the property prices, well, there are 2 sayings, one is material prices going up thus property prices is going up. Another saying is, inflation is up, interest rate is up, people will be force to sell their houses because can't afford to pay for houses anymore, more people sell, prices will drop. Yeah, even in USA, home prices has dropped quite significantly.

This is bcos agent stil want to advertise for themselves so that passer by will still call them.

This road is popular cos facing south and can view the play ground (South east view) from the hse.

The one directly in front of the playgrouds are selling at 420K + cos the developer price already 380k+

Property price depends on supply and demand.. Bayu at KU is quite popular with bigger build up, gated and guarded, easier access to Kesas and nice environment.

You can find such price at USJ or other prime location.

Not many hses left now as the new design 22x75 will get / already gotten the keys in July 08.

KK is a nice place to stay. I stay here for more than 6 years already. I can say that it is growing 'slowly'. Not a wise place for investment but good for staying.

Everyday when i am back to KK, i feel that i am released from the stress and tension of the city. And i get to park my car at my house.

My friend in USJ always having problem with the neighbour due to parking issues. Finally she rented a house opposite to park the car and keep her children toys.

Thank you all for the comments. The reason I am asking is I had paid a 10% deposit for a corner unit in Kemuning Utama (subject to finance) :) .

I am now in Brisbane Australia, the reasons I choose Kemuning Utama is that my brother had bought one there and I thought is great to stay near to each other.

I did own a aquarium business in the Kota Kemuning (those shops at the first roundabout, opposite to McDonald). and I do quite like the atmosphere there.

Anyway. Thanks again.

Pros: Is set up as a proper kindergarten with uniforms, classrooms, canteen, trilingual syllabus and even mini toilet seats :). Security is emphasized with the autogate being locked during school hours and only staff and teachers can buzz you in. Student drop-off and pick-up is well controlled and systematic with focus on safety. Daycare is also available for those who need it.

Cons: Slightly more expensive but keep in mind this is not your typical corner lot terrace house nursery cum preschool.

are you staying in KU too? how old is your daughter when she joins this kindie? is it available for kids from 4-6?

Yeah, the web page is pretty sparse. Don't know why they even bother putting it up. Don't judge them by the website though. I'd suggest you call them up and arrange for a visit. When I was checking them out last time, the principal personally took us on a tour of the school and patiently explained how they operate and what was taught. And bring your kid along...it's important that he/she likes the environment.

I don't know much of the details (my wife takes care of all these ;)) but roughly speaking:

1. Yes, available for 4-6. My daughter joined from 3+ years.
2. Fees about RM280 monthly + 400 half-yearly for materials + misc (uniform, etc...around 100++, if I'm not mistaken).
3. Syallabus...hmmm, reading, writing (English, Malay and Mandarin), counting, arts and craft, PE, etc.

Nah, I was satisfied with what I saw, so didn't bother with the rest. As far as I know, some people are quite happy with the kindergarten in Chinese Taipei International School as well as CEC in Bukit Rimau.

Police road-block are frequent now...You can see it when exiting from the 2nd roundabout to 1st roundabout. When we asked the policeman, they said there is a few robbery(at gated and guarded bungalow lot) and they hope to prevent it.

Then.. i heard that a robber break into a kindergarden to rob a car. Nobody was hurt. Later that car was recovered and used in another robbery.

Really hope more police presence will deter criminal from coming here. When i jog past them today, i show them a thumb up for their effort.

While they are on the case they might check a few trucks that run through KK/Bukit Rimau like the bakery trucks and others just to avoid paying the toll which in doing so add unnecessarily to congestion and danger to children.

Try Aranda, Phase 1, those 20x70 types. It is a nice neighborhood. Wide road, horse shoe design, and lots of small parks. Last year some were going for RM250.00 but price has gone up for this year. Basic units should be within your budget.

Prices are really shooting up as more and more amenities are coming to KU/KK/BRimau i.e. Giant, Carrefour, 24 Hour KFC with Drive Thru and Pizza Hut at KU

Not really, new terrace house in KU went up alot. Launched 2 years ago at the price of 308K and now it is selling at 465K, and even the bank value it less than that, hard for some people to get a loan. I still don't understand why so much increase in price. :confused: :confused:

Even the newly completed Lake-something terrace houses went up RM100K. Lots of people make money there. 100K is a lot just for holding it for 2 years. Maybe the presence of Carrefour has something to do with it.

Wow...100K!!! Or should I say inflation? Or the price of houses are getting out of control? But not all places are like that, some matured places are still selling at reasonable prices.

If you ask me, KK is playing catch-up. They have been laggards all these years. So are SJ and USJ. Look at Damansara. The intermediate houses are going for RM500K - RM700K already and yet houses here are less than RM400K. It is only recently that some have moved past RM400K.

Malaysian real estate is a laggard compared to other Asean countries. You will not find these prices in Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Taipei, or Seoul. If the government manage to move the income to high income, these prices will not stay this low for long. Be prepare to see link houses hit RM1 million!!

But we cannot compare houses in Damansara, the location is so much nearer to town (KL). KK is near to.....hmm......Klang maybe? USJ or SJ houses I would agree. Sometimes I just don't understand, the prices of houses are way to high for average Malaysians, even husband and wife are both working, it's very hard to afford one.

Yes, we cannot compare apples with oranges. It is percentage we should look at. If the difference is too wide, market forces will eventually force it to be adjusted - either upwards or downwards. In this case, my personal opinion is, SJ/USJ should only have a difference of around 10% to 15% with Damansara area (Utama, Jaya etc) and a high 15% - 20% with Bandar Utama. Kota Kemuning should be about 10% behind. If my calculation is correct, SJ/USJ will be re-rated and the prices will be adjusted higher. Just imagine a couple looking to buy a house in Damansara and the price is RM550K but for RM350K they may be able to buy a similar house in SJ/USJ - a difference of 36%. This will cause some buyers to eventually buy houses in SJ/USJ and thus demand will cause the differences to narrow it to a reasonable range.

As for affordability, it depends on many factors. If one is willing to live further away, the price difference is substantial. Parts of Kepong, Selayang, Cheras, Balakong, Puchong, Kota Kemuning are still affordable to those with a combined income of RM5K a month. For many couples, especially graduates, combined income of RM7K to RM10K is not unusual. So, they can afford houses between RM350K to RM500K easily.

Agree. You got a point here. Some people will still opt for location, since they work in KL, so they just get a condo nearer to town with the same price tag as a landed double stories terrace. That's why so many of these condos popping up every where. Just wondering, if the roads can take all those additional traffic when all those condos are occupied. :confused:

Not that I know of. Unless they build a bridge, I think Kemuning and Putra Height is separated by the Klang River.
