Scary but true according to Sentinel at the Summit. It is the Raspberry Jam during the breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other places not so bad unless we include federal highway, Cheras and major downtown.
That is why I am still staying at Bandar Sri Damansara which is just 15 minutes drive to Subang. :)

You may check USJ 2, 6, 11, 12, 13, 14 for 1.5 storey houses or 20x60.

Prices ranges from RM 250 - RM 280K (basic) if I am not mistaken

I would say Cheras is not bad at all. It used to be infamous for its notorious traffic but I dare to say it has got so much better after Jln Loke Yew-Jln Cheras upgrading work was completed.

Subang is supposely to be the hub for foreigners especially with so many international colleges around. But instead of foreigners which comes here and invest and buy a home, we have the other foreigners who come here under other pretext such as getting thier courses in English at the college and well, you get the dirft.
WHy wouldnt Subang not a preferred location? Rasberry Jam, Mat Rempits and makeshift GnG might be the possibllities. I have had asked why the foreigners who prefer to buy Desa Park City and according to my wifey, even the local ones are investing there and moving in there until there are more buyers than sellers. Even for the condo units which is highly priced, there are limited sellers.
BTW, PM me if you have anyone selling those Desa Park unit, I can earn some commision from my wifey who have local and overseas standing order to buy. So much that I can afford to buy you a 10 courses dinner at the Chef Room from lobster soup to fish egg with tuna yee sang and lobster and cod fish as main course diatas rumah :D :) :D

If you don't have specific reason to stay in SJ/USJ, don't buy the house here.

Nothing against SJ/USJ and nothing to do with traffic jam, etc.

The housee are old, more than 30 years old for SJ, and easily above 15 years for USJ houses.

Lato,

If got $$$, no problem, tore down the house & build new one.

What I am trying to say - the old design which give little emphasis on sun light and air ventilation, which don't think kitchen is an important area in house design, which don't even think bathroom should be given serious attention - this type of house design sucks !!!

Try Kota Kemuning. Most people will tell you it is paradise when compare to other suburbs. Moreover the link between KK and the Federal Highway will be completed soon so another option will be added. You can easily find a house within the budget you mentioned.

I have the same concern with you when I first move into USJ.. but after that realize that as the children grow up, the old USJ house just too small to fit the big family.. and so, most of the people has to move to other area.

of course u 'd need to commute lah. Its in seremban lake area. :)
Maybe its not a bad idea as the distance is only 70km/1hr from SJ and no jam along NS hiway. Cost o f livin also cheaper by 30%...

I really don't think so and its a false perception. One may end up with more savings as likely less to spend in a smaller town like Seremban. Nevertheless, go browse, dine or splurge on anything you fancy at a place like Seremban 2 shopping mall and see if you're purse run dry in minutes or not?..

Depends o where do you work and which route you plan to take - start with that :) EG: if you take KESAS to work, not a good idea to stay at USJ4 - sure die in the morning !! Better to stay near USJ2 or SS14 (contra flow - head south) etc etc .... If taking Federal Highway, then better off SS19 as far away from Lick Hung area as possible etc etc .... if you work towards CYberjaya/Puchong - Putra Heights or USJ22/23 area.

Or you can go and stay where amenities are easily reachable without parking hassle - USJ9 or USJ6 - walking range to Taipan.

What does the break-in / snatch rate need to be before something decides to really do something about it?

When even the easily enforced "small laws" are ignored (like the broken noisey exhausts that never get fixed on little motorbikes) what chance is there?

I agree, I lived in SS19 and it is so amazing that this enclave is missed out by buyers.
When I first bought here 12 years ago, we already did not like the idea of jam into USJ..so we search for an older house with good access to renovate.

Traffic Jam?
1)I don't get into the jam as I can use the first entrance (Kewajipan, pass by Subang pArade and enter thru the Kebangsaan primary school in SS19 -takes about 10 minutes from Federal Highway, including traffic lights).

2)Alernatively, come in via the second entrance, turn towards Subang Parade but make a u-turn at the traffic lights(in fornt of Wisma Consplant) and go straight towards trhe Kebangsaan primary school(SS19).

3)For primary school, go via the small service road in front of the bungalows/semi-Ds to Lick Hung (10-15 mins)
If this road is jammed, just use the backroads thru the bungalows as it exits at the end side of Lick Hung (near the LH school field)

4)For secondary school, there is Subang Utama Kebangsaan school(SS18), where Hannah Yeoh came from, the schools results are pretty good, moist students are from Lick Hung...same route, drop the children at the pedrestian bridge in the service road in front of the semi-ds, the bridge other side is right in front of the doorsteps of the school (so is safe). This is the same service road that SS19 residents normally use to send kids to Lick Hung

5) Vibrante Music school - my kids started there and now in Grade 5 piano and it is right in SS19!

6) Ah Lye Curry Fishhead is on the same row, good curry fish head and Assam prawns (air-con)

7) Mamak - Goto SS19 Syed, there is at least 2 more there..

8) Subang Parade/Carrefour & Wet market - SS15 wet market is 5 minutes drive

9) Mac Donald/Banks/Fruit shop- SS15 is 5 minutes drive

10) Schools - Inti, Taylors...etc...oh..also SJMC is 5 minutes drive away...no jam...

11) Sunway Pyramid is about 10 mins drive - no jam, over the same flyover for NPE

12) KTM - next to Subang Parade

13) Place is quiet, I cannot hear the traffic, only local traffic, there is a playground and basketball court and a remote car race course (not sure this is a plus, but it can be happening place when they have the races on, all the byoung wannabes are there..)


14) Security is now guarded with boom gates RM60/mth

15) In Australia, a place like this will be attracting young families...

I think it is just waiting for someone like me to publish this here....and I would be interested to hear what disadvantages of that place is..

Only one thing, I did not like since I moved in ,I had to knock some walls down and reposition the toilet (it was facing the front door!), and also expand the small master bedroom as the builtups is small. In thoise days they built the rooms quite small...so some walls will have to come down...

Otherwise, I think the location of SS19 is excellent!

28-01-2010, 03:20 PM
Bruce,

All the plus points for SS19 you can find them in SS12 as well, and the distance to SJMC, Carefour, Subang Parade, Sunway Pyramid and SS15 are nearer.

When talk about tranquility and quiet, no place in SJ/USJ can beat Wangsa Baiduri in SS12.

It is gated and guarded and I really meant gated and guarded, not the type you see in USJ.

There are condo in the enclave of Wangsa Baiduri.
If you chose the right unit, you will have TWO views, Sunway view where you can enjoy watching fireworks in Christmas, New Year and CNY. You will also have the lake view of Subang Ria park.

But there's always plenty at SS17 & SS19?? And not too ex. Unless you're looking for corner lot, the normal link should be quite easy?? There's just been 2 transactions (link house) near my house.

I bought my house in SS18 about 4 years back for below RM400k. Whilst searching for property then the price ranged between RM250k to slightly more than RM400k.

My opinion is the best area in SJ would be SS14, SS15, SS17 and SS18, as this is the center of SJ.. SS19 would be the next best choice as it is tucked on the corner of SJ. USJ, i would say forget it unless you are ready to face everyday jam (i stayed in USJ for a number of years before I gave up and decide to move out to SS18).

With easy access to NPE and Fed Highway, SS14-18 is an excellent choice for a home.

Not too sure if house price is still the same like 4 years ago, but what I understand is SJ/USJ is till a much better choice in terms of pricing as compated to Puchong which is currently going for no less than RM half a mil for a simple double story house.

As for old house versus new house, I beg to differ to an earlier post that new house design is much better. Seriously Sime UEP's design sux big time!! with all the nooks and corners it makes a house with big plot of land looks damn small from the inside.. and if you would notice, the ceiling is much lower too, making the house heat up so much faster. Old house on the other hand has higher ceiling and is much cooler as compared to those new ones.

Yu, I bought a 22 X85 house in SS18 for less then RM400k and renovated it.. total cost inclusive of fittings (kitchen cabinet and wardropes + whole house painting) is less than RM500k.. so, still a much better deal than those houses in Puchong with a smaller plot and still cost more.. to top that, the jam in Puchong is worse than rasberry flavour.. :eek:

Just my 2 cents

Sssshhh, Mat Bruce, why let the cat out of the house. Planning to sell? Let use ss19 residents enjoy our seclusion. :)

I think SS19 will have the seclusion for a long time since it is at the corner, not many cars will want to pass thru it as it leads to nowhere. Even the LRT will not go thru it so your seclusion will be protected...

Yes, one day I will eventually sell, when I have more leisure time, would like to be travelling the world (but I will still post here, like Sentinel?). Right now, time and convenience is everything. The kids needs to have quality education, good friends,a good environment to grow up.

The reason I brought this up was that I invested in Australia in 2004 and the criterias for choosing a winning property are the same,i.e near a good primary and secondary schools,good transport(near a rail station), good hospital nearby, good shopping so I feel that SS19 is totally undervalued..the real estate agents here do not know how to sell.(maybe it was under the flight path before when the international airport was in Subang and it was very noisy to hear the air planes,also someone might throw a Coca Cola bottle down at residents in SS19 :) but this is no more, right?) so also reason I feel that it is undervalued..

Also SS19 is the school zone for Lick Hung school, your children are zoned to enter Lick Hung (I still think it is a good Chinese school)
The local real estate agents also don't know how to pitch this fact i.e school zone for the good schools. I started to invest in Australia in 2004 and if a place has all these good facilities, you will be lucky to get in..
I am waiting for real estate agents in usj.com to call me a liar and tell me why SS19 should not have a premium in the price.

Don't mean to sound arrogance ,but my firm opinion only. No offence ntended.

Maybe you can visit the Saujana Residency Condo (Lion Group, behind Subang Parade), Lake Edge landed property (YTL, at Puchong).

The condo and the landed house mentioned above are new and in my opinion value for money for quality house.

What I am saying is old house or house with old design did not emphasize much on the importance of heat and air ventilation, less attention on bathroom and kitchen which should be an integral part of house design. As such, sizeable amount of money need to be spent on renovation to make the house conducive to stay.

Mat Bruce, I'm with Lau_utlang as I really enjoy staying in this area :D

I understand your point about the location being undervalued. But then again, I feel that whole of SJ houses are undervalued, esp in comparison with Puchong, which to me is a nightmare place to stay (no offence to the Puchong residents) as the traffic jams there are worse than SJ at anytime. But to each their own :p
