Giant leap – Buying a new house
I still feel like dreaming. Many say that buying a house might be the most expensive buy that you’ll do in your life, and I basically done that at last. I was walking around one of the shopping mall to survey about buying a new fridge (there will be a seperate blog about this), where suddenly I saw a booth selling new house. Casa Idaman Condominium – the name kinda sounds really fancy to me.
As always, one thing that people consider about buying a new house is location. This is where this project will be,
and this is the artist impression on how it will look like upon completion.
But don’t take map, photo and agent’s words for granted. It’s better to visit the site myself so that I will have a better sight on things that I will buy. So went to the showroom after that.
And here I am, in the show unit of type B. I kinda like the layout.
There has already been a ground breaking ceremony yesterday,
and work will be under progress too. So this is the area.
The offer that they made is also quite interesting to me.
- 5% discount for bumiputera
- Early bird discount of RM12,892
- Special rebate of RM8,000
- Free 2 car parks
Finally, it’s the historical moment of my life where I book one unit for myself with the booking payment of RM1000.
I book the type A one, facing KLCC with the price of RM271,400. It is indeed the most expensive purchase that I ever attempted.
So I guess what I have to do now is just to wait for the loan to be approved, and after that will arrange the EPF withdrawal for down payment.
Like always, I like to research of things that I would like to buy. Visiting property forum seems to be a good option, since I can always reject this and get 70% refund of my booking fee.
I’m glad to see that most views are the positive one, to the fact that a new KTM komuter station is under construction very near to this condo, as well as YTL has bought vacant land around this condo to be developed as well. Sounds like this place a good investment.
