The Smart Home Buyer's Checklist

Buying a home for the first time is more than just a smart financial move or even a lifestyle upgrade; it's a choice to exercise greater control over your life as a whole. The process itself requires a degree of personal responsibility not found in normal life, even for large purchases like a new car or mutual fund. To smooth the process as much as possible, here are a few essential rules of thumb to keep in mind along the way.

Get Organized: No, you don't have to go on a massive cleaning binge to get a new home, although that might happen after all when you move into it. The first and most important step in buying a home is to get your finances organized. In order to determine what type of home you want there are a few basic things that you need such as at least two to five years of employment history, two to six months bank statements, bank and stock account balances, and credit score, although your mortgage broker should be the one to look this up. There are two main reasons to compile all of this data, first because most reputable lenders are going to require it, second and more importantly, because by understanding where you are right now financially you will be able to see how buying a house will impact your finances.

Perhaps you will gain equity with a smart purchase and ideally you should be able to get a good house for less money per month than your current apartment, if not you may want to spend a few months improving your credit first. If organizing all these statements seems like too much work there are plenty of financial advisers and even some mortgage brokers who can help, the important thing is to put yourself in the position to make the most intelligent decision.

Get the Right Mortgage: Now that you know where you stand financially, and hopefully have a few clear goals set, the next step is to determine what kind of mortgage will work for you. Unlike rental agreements mortgages are not simple one-size-fits-all transactions, having the wrong mortgage could mean the first home you buy is the last home you ever buy. The important things to consider when choosing a mortgage are your monthly payment, how soon you plan on moving, and any improvements or repairs you plan on making to the house. There is absolutely nothing wrong with getting an adjustable rate mortgage if you could be making the maximum payment right now, even if you are planning to move soon it's better to be safe than sorry.

For the home buyer who is planning on a move in the near future a possible option could be an interest only mortgage, again know what you are getting into. For the Home buyer who is not moving it may be wise to maximize equity build up with a low interest 15 year mortgage. Whichever mortgage you choose make sure you can not only afford the payments, but also have a few months income in savings. If something did happen reserve accounts can buy the time needed to make any adjustments.

Get the Right Agent: The right agent is the one who has your best interest in mind, not the size of their commission. That much is probably obvious, what isn't as well known is how to find a good agent. To get a good Real Estate agent you need to know a little about how Real Estate Agencies work, to put it simply the best listings go to the best agents. A good Real Estate agent knows that you will probably buy more than one house in your life, and they know that you have friends and family who might be referrals for them, if they do a good job. Owning a home is a powerful financial statement, regardless of age or background, but it is also a significant responsibility. That responsibility is ongoing too, even in brand new homes things may break, rather than having to scramble through the phone book while the bathroom is flooding, look for a good home warranty and save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress, your Real Estate agent should be able to recommend one. It takes a lot of smart, organized individuals to complete the purchase of a new home, and the buyer should be definitely be one of them.

Discovering the Pros of Condos

When a person is trying to decide if they should move into a building, they may want to think about the advantages to condominium living. The pros of condos may surpass the advantages to living in a house type building. There are many added bonuses to consider when choosing a building over a home dwelling. A home buyer will need to think about what is best for their situation and family as they decide.

Living in a building will involve the payment of monthly fees. These fees take care of everything the building needs to function on a regular basis. It helps to pay for the interior and exterior cleaning of the building. Landscaping charges are included as well as any repairs that need to be done. Snow removal and ice melting supplies are all included in the building fee.

Living in a building is also great for anyone with a mobility issue. An elevator can take guests up and down with ease to their car and to their unit. There is no need to take stairs or have to climb them, with everything located on one floor.

A balcony can give homeowners access to a patio and some fresh air. Many people will place a small table and chairs out there to enjoy a great day. Flowers can be potted on a balcony as well as some gardening decorations.

There is no need to worry about taking care of the outside of a unit. A small monthly fee takes care of everything that is needed for the running and operating of the building. Taking the stress out of the extra upkeep of a home can be helpful to anyone who does own a home. There are many worries to owning a house that can be erased in a condo style living arrangement. The upkeep of the exterior of the house as well as the care of the lawn does not have to be thought about, with the exclusive condo living.

Each floor will contain a garbage room, where garbage bags are placed in a chute. The chute takes them down to the main garbage room on the main floor. The idea of disposing of waste in such an easy manner, allows residence the comfort of not having to worry about putting garbage out on a special day.

Not having stairs in a unit is not only great for people who use wheelchairs, but also for anyone who has trouble walking or has knee issues. They are also great for kids, so that parents do not have to worry about using baby gates or children falling down stairs.

The pros of condominiums, may include a variety of things. If a homeowner wants to take some of the stress out of home ownership, they may want to consider moving into a building. Many condominiums will feature workout gyms and pools to use and take advantage of. The added features will give someone a great reason why they should be exercising. People do not need to spend money on gym memberships when they have access to one in their own building. A pool is fun for adults and families who enjoy swimming and playing in the water.

Ways to find that perfect luxury apartment

Finding your dream apartment may take a little time and effort, but it is all part of the fun in exploring possible choices. While there are plenty of great apartments available for you to consider, you should definitely have a list of the features that you want in an apartment before you go looking. This is one good way that that you can begin to narrow down your list of choices rather quickly.

There are plenty of ways to find the apartment you have been looking for. Be sure to check out as many apartments as possible before you settle on just one. This way you know that the apartment you select is truly the best for you and your needs. Below are some different ways that you can find an apartment:

Local adverts: If you read the newspaper, you've surely come across the section that shows houses and apartments that are available for rent. This can be a good place to start your search for a luxury apartment. Though the newspapers may sometimes have a limited selection, you may get an idea of what type of apartment you can get for the money you are looking to spend. You can also take down the names of some of the apartment complexes you are interested in touring.

Online: Looking for an apartment online is another proven practice. The great thing about searching online is that you can pick and choose the criteria you are looking for in an apartment, and the website will narrow down your results for you. For instance, you could put in how much you're willing to pay each month for rent, or how many rooms you want the apartment to have. Online you often will also get to see pictures of the apartment's interior and exterior, which can help give you an instant visual of the apartment from the comfort of your own home, and save you time and effort in the process.

Drive around: If you ever have some spare time one day, just take a drive around your town to see what luxury apartments are available. Look for signs displaying apartment vacancies, and keep your eye open for any flyers and posters that may be posted around town. Plenty of luxury apartment complexes offer open house tours every day!

Remember when looking for your perfect apartment, the most important thing to remember is to take time to consider many different choices. Don't settle on an apartment until it is exactly what you want; take enough time to locate the apartment that offers everything you worked for and always dreamed of!

New Traffic Lights Set Up

The Star Online

Thursday November 25, 2010

TWO housing developers have installed a set of traffic lights each and several lamp posts outside their housing schemes in Butterworth to help improve traffic flow.

Seberang Prai municipal councillor Soon Lip Chee said PJD Eastern Land, the developer of Harbour Place, installed a set of traffic lights on New Ferry Road which would be put on a two-week trial run from this week.

He said the traffic lights would help to improve traffic flow to the nearby Taman Mewah flats.

“When approving the Harbour Place layout plan, the council had asked the developer to build two new access roads and install a set of traffic lights on New Ferry Road,” he said in an interview.

Soon said this was necessary to cater to the anticipated high number of vehicles travelling between the Seaview Tower condominium and busy New Ferry Road.

He said PJD Eastern had built one of the access roads — a 200m-long road connecting Seaview Tower to New Ferry Road next to the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

He said the second road would connect Park View Tower and New Ferry Road, near the New Ferry Road Voluntary Fire Fighting squad’s base.

Seaview Tower and Parkview Tower are part of the Harbour Place project.

Soon said the other developer, Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad, had installed a set of traffic lights connecting its Taman Limbungan Indah mixed development project on Jalan Kapal to Chain Ferry Road.

“This particular set of traffic lights is highly necessary as many accidents had occurred at the road junction.

“These lights will only be functional next month as the developer has yet to complete resurfacing the road shoulders,” he said.

Fellow councillor Oon Neow Aun said although both new traffic lights were located less than 200m from the main traffic lights at the Chain Ferry Road-New Ferry Road junction, they were vital for traffic dispersal as there were too many shop houses along both stretches.

“There are five traffic lights between Taman Bagan and the Penang Sentral temporary bus terminal which is a distance of less than 1km.

“We will try our best to synchronise the timing of these traffic lights” he said.

Another councillor, S. Chandrasekeran, encouraged the public to give their feedback on the function and timing of the traffic lights to any municipal councillor or via the council’s website at

“The council’s traffic committee will compile the feedback and take necessary action,” he said.

Penang - The ideal choice for expatriates

Live Comfortably In A Penang Apartment

By Tess Ritcher (July 16, 2010)

Looking for a change? Move to Malaysia and you can enjoy a fascinating culture with gorgeous tropical scenery. One of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the country is Penang. With your own apartment Penang, you can live like a local. Experience life in Malaysia and make memories to last a lifetime.

The world is enchanted by Malaysia, a country where cultures from around Asia co-exist harmoniously. Most of the population is Malay, Chinese or Indian, though there are significant groups of many other Asian peoples as well. The city is known for being friendly and receptive to tourists and people from overseas. Many find the mix of modern and traditional, Eastern and Western to be very intriguing as well. For instance, in George Town, Penang you’ll see buildings from the city’s British colonial past, and not far away you can find any number of centuries-old Buddhist temples and indigenous shrines. You can also take part in tourist activities at beachfront resorts, enjoying the clear water, diving and coral reefs.

You can enjoy great dining in Penang, but trying the street food will give you a less touristy, more authentic experience. Go where the locals go and you’ll end up with some of the best dishes. In just a few minutes, you can try simple but flavorful Indian, Malaysian and Chinese dishes, and enjoy people-watching as you eat at the roadside.

Particularly for those with an interest in architecture or colonial history, take a look at the heritage buildings in inner city George Town. There you will find eclectic architecture overflowing with history.

Some of the most interesting architecture, also providing an informative look into Malaysian society and culture today, can be found at the many religious structures in Penang. Dedicated to the supreme ruler of heaven according to Taoist belief, the Jade Emperor’s Pavilion is a beautiful temple that has stood for a hundred and forty years. It sees the most number of visitors during Chinese New Year.

You should also be sure to check out the Reclining Buddha. The thirty-three meter long, gold plated Buddha statue is housed in a temple built by a Thai monk in 1845. Throughout the grounds you can find intricately decorated shrines and every shape and size of Buddha statue. The city also has mosques, Hindu temples, and Churches throughout, so the religious sights are virtually endless.

For the night life, head to the Upper Penang Road in George Town. There you can grab a drink in a bar, sing in a karaoke club, or enjoy a live band at one of the clubs. For a more casual scene, head to nearby Chulia Street where you can relax at a coffee shop, inexpensive bar or quaint motel.

If you’re living in Penang, you won’t want to miss the Toy Museum. The only one of its kind in the entire world, it offers countless toys and collectibles that kids and adults alike will delight in seeing. Another attraction in Teluk Bahang is the Penang Butterfly Farm. There you can go to see all sizes and colors of butterflies fluttering freely around. The farm is also a breeding and research center for butterflies.

No matter where you’re from, there are endless attractions in Penang. If you stay long enough and live in a luxurious Penang apartment, you can experience the local life in a new and exciting city.

Penang's residential sector a picture of health

PENANG cannot help but be in the limelight with the island being singled out as the logistics, transportation and infrastructure hub for the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER). This paints a healthy picture for the state's residential properties as the higher-end properties and condominiums are moving up very positively.

Overall, the state, with a population of around 1.5 million, was ranked fourth in terms of real estate transactions totalling 20,877 for 2006 valued at RM5.49 billion after Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Johor.

Penang's residential market is expected to exhibit increased demand towards stratified properties and new growth areas, both on the island and the mainland. On the state's future housing supply, lifestyle housing, which came into the vogue the past three to four years, will continue. These comprise largely the two-and-a-half and three-storey terraced housing and luxury condominium developments.

With the cost of living in Penang being so much cheaper, Penang will continue to be quite an exciting place to invest in properties as long as the state can support it with more social amenities. The fact that major developers from Kuala Lumpur are coming to Penang to buy land and develop properties here goes to show that land prices are still relatively cheap and attractive.

Although Penang's population growth of 1.57% in the 1990s appears to be weak, mapper Ho Chin Soon says Penang can be likened to be a "little magnet" and anticipates that the state will have significant impact on the NCER and areas such as Kulim.

Article on Green Development

Go green for a brighter future

Bricks & Mortar by TEH LIP KIM

THE world is going green and as property developers we should place priority on how we can contribute towards a better environment and the community at large. Everything that we build will stand as testimony to our craft across many generations. Our buildings will speak volumes about whether we, as a society, cared for our environment, our home.

Property developers can respond to this eco-challenge in many ways. Sometimes, a small amount of effort is all it takes to bring about a large quantity of benefit. Developers can start off by taking small steps such as making use of natural air, light and ventilation when we design.

If a building is able to make use of what nature has to offer, then that means it is less dependent on electrical power. Layouts that are open and linear, with no nooks and crannies, will use less electricity.

Taking this a step further, we could think of other environmentally friendly ways to make buildings more energy efficient. These could include planting grass on rooftops, which would help keep temperatures down inside buildings, translating to a lower dependence on air-conditioning in our hot weather, and relieving our environment of ozone-eating CFCs. Of course, on-going maintenance will be required and the rooftops could be treated as part of the gardens belonging to the development.

We can also make provision for the water that is used in buildings to be recycled. Tap water can be channelled back into toilets and then treated for use in gardens. We can place solar panels on the roof for sustainable energy use. While solar panels are generally considered an expensive add-on in Malaysia, countries such as Japan, the Netherlands and Germany, already have government initiatives to support the building of integrated solar projects.

We can use recycled or sustainable materials for our construction. For example, a local company has discovered that old tyres need not be thrown away, but can be put under the foundation of a house to regulate the temperature inside the home.

We can use technologies that reduce water and energy consumption. If we have a high-speed elevator in the building, we can collect the energy that it generates on the way down for later use.

The problem, however, is that several of these technologies are, at present, rather costly for our stage of development.

Building safety is another important consideration that developers here should address. While Malaysia lies outside an earthquake-likely demarcated zone, many places in KL felt tremors during the recent earthquakes in Sumatra, and thousands of people were evacuated from their high-rise buildings until the danger had passed.

So, even though the law here does not require buildings to be designed for seismic conditions, we decided to design Park Seven so that it will withstand the horizontal force of an earthquake.

This involved strengthening the joints to provide better control of the lateral movements, increasing reinforcements in the columns and constructing closer links in the columns and the beams.

We comply with both the British standards, to which Malaysia adheres, and the Indonesian seismic code.

Eco-friendly designs may add an additional 15% to 20% to the total cost of construction for a developer but this is money that is worth spending. Over in Singapore, some flats designed to be environmentally sustainable were recently snapped up at premium prices, proving critics wrong who said that they would be hard to sell.

Financial experts, too, believe that by paying attention to environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues they can affect the way an investment portfolio performs. Two years ago the United Nations Secretary-General invited a group of the world’s largest institutional investors to jointly develop the UN Principles for Responsible Investing. While being aspirational and voluntary in nature, these principles provide investment professionals who are serious about ESG issues, with a framework to guide their investment decisions.

Green architecture has, in fact, taken off to varying degrees in many countries, including Singapore. Our neighbour down south launched a scheme in January 2005, called the BCA Green Mark Scheme under their Ministry of National Development, which rates existing and new buildings on their environmental sustainability, quality, safety and innovation, and presents cash incentives for buildings that win top ratings.

Regionally, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have also implemented programmes to encourage their property developers to move towards more eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable buildings.

Malaysia, too, should get serious in this area if we want to be considered a developed nation. In fact, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi called for a balance between development and environmental sustainability in his speech to launch the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

As developers, we build for the future. Let us take the lead to ensure that our buildings are friendly to our environment, for the benefit of generations to come.

Good news for potential home buyers

Flexible EPF withdrawal

The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has launched a flexible withdrawal scheme for higher-end houses, which will be effective from Sunday.

In a statement released yesterday in Kuala Lumpur, the EPF said the scheme is open to contributors who have not made withdrawals under the existing scheme to purchase a house or reduce their housing loans.

The main difference of the new scheme is that it is designed to give qualifying members, who initially were not eligible for a higher loan, a better chance to boost their home loan eligibility with the banks after they get to view the members' current and future EPF savings potential.

Those who have made housing withdrawals or who are above 54 years of age are not eligible for the new scheme.

EPF chief executive officer Tan Sri Azlan Zainol said the new scheme does not affect a member's retirement funds as savings that have been set aside under this facility will continue to earn the yearly dividends paid by the EPF.

Members must be below 54 years of age on application day and the application must be made together with their application for EPF withdrawal to purchase/build a house or reduce their housing loans.

A member may transfer part of his savings in account two to the flexible housing withdrawal account, followed by a monthly transfer of a specified amount or contribution to this account.

The flexible housing withdrawal account is not a newly set-up account but a template within account two, created for administrative purposes.

The minimum amount for the housing loan will be determined by the initial two participating banks, namely Malayan Banking Bhd and Public Bank Bhd.

Savings which have been set aside under the flexible housing withdrawal cannot be withdrawn or utilised for any other pre-retirement withdrawals such as housing, education or medical.

Members, however, can still use the remaining savings in account two for other pre-retirement withdrawals.

Each application is to be submitted by the member to the financial institution from where he will obtain the housing loan.

All application forms will then be submitted to the EPF by the headquarters of each participating financial institution.

Members who wish to cancel their flexible housing withdrawal term may do so, but only after a year from the commencement date of the facility and upon consent from the participating bank. - Business Times

Harbour Place article in the Star Newspaper

Harbour Place a much sought after address

Thursday July 8, 2010


BUTTERWORTH’s skyline is set to be transformed with the RM700mil Harbour Place project that will also include a hotel and a college.

Touted as the town’s first Metrocity, the development will see the opening of Swiss Garden Harbour Place next year as well as an educational institution right at the residents’ doorsteps.

Harbour Place is made up of three distinct components, namely The Urban residential zone, The Metro commercial and education zone, and The Retro entertainment and F&B zone.

Pleasant environment: An artist's impression of the new Entrance Statement at the junction of the new access road to Harbour Place.

PJD Group’s senior sales and marketing executive Nicholas Ng said the integration of a ‘live, work, play’ lifestyle had made the project a much sought after address not only among locals but also foreigners.

He said the residential component comprising two luxury condominiums (Phase I and II) — Park View Tower and Sea View Tower — were fully sold out while Ocean View Residences (Phase III) was now open for booking.

“Response to the 386 units in the 30-storey block has been great with about 65% sold to date.

“Targeting the younger market, architectural designs are based on our ‘Chic Urban Living’ concept with the creation of an environment that is both stylish and dynamic,” he said.

PJD Group will promote Ocean View Residences at the Star Property Fair 2010 which will be held at the G Hotel and Gurney Plaza in Penang from July 23 to July 25.

And in conjunction with Harbour Place’s 8th anniversary, purchasers who sign up from now until the fair ends are entitled to a free fully furnished kitchen system and three air-conditioning units worth RM30,000 in total.

With a targeted completion date of mid-2012, the units have three designs with built-up areas of 938 sq ft and 1,100 sq ft. Each unit boasts its own unique features and comes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a sun deck.

Latest news on Penang Sentral (15/06/2010)

BUTTERWORTH: Work on the RM2 billion Penang Sentral, a transportation hub modelled after Kuala Lumpur Sentral, is expected to be ready by 2015.

Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said the project would be completed by 2015. The first phase, which includes the construction of bus and taxi terminals as well as retail outlets, will be ready by 2011. It will cost about RM300 million. The subsequent phases are commercial in nature.

"The project will comprise an integrated terminal for rail, road and sea travel and is one of several major projects aimed at strengthening Penang's role as a logistics and transportation hub for the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER)," Nor Mohamed said yesterday. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi performed the ground-breaking ceremony for Penang Sentral last August.

The project, located on a 12.8ha site, is jointly undertaken by Pelaburan Hartanah Bumiputera Berhad (PHBB) and Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB). Nor Mohamed said the Penang Sentral temporary bus terminal marked an important milestone after plans to develop the site hit a snag over the past seven years. It will replace the terminal, built under a flyover, after a fire gutted the three-storey bus complex owned by the Penang Port Commission in 2001.

Penang Sentral will be a welcome relief for commuters who have been complaining about the deplorable conditions at the existing terminal. Penang Sentral Sdn Bhd chairman Kamalul Arifin Othman said the completion of Penang Sentral would help maintain the same service without disrupting their lifestyle.

Penang property prices expected to go up

Published: 2010/03/17

Despite the global downturn last year, the Penang property market has not recorded any significant drop in prices and is expected to improve this year in line with the economic recovery.

Henry Butcher Malaysia (Seberang Perai) Sdn Bhd's senior manager Fook Tone Huat said that development land, especially in Seberang Perai, were still in good demand, particularly those near town areas.

"Although many projects were deferred last year, we are confident that the worst is over and and the public confidence has began to come back in the property market," he said at a media briefing on the property market in Seberang Perai, Butterworth, today.

The Seberang Perai area is expect to record a 10 per cent increase in appreciation rate due to its high population density compared to neighbouring states like Kedah and Perak, Fook said.

"No doubt that Penang Island has been the number one choice for property but Seberang Perai can offer a better price and location," he said.

Fook said that development land in Seberang Perai were two times larger than those in Penang island.

"The lack of land for development has caused properties in Penang island to be about 40 per cent higher than those in Seberang Perai," he said.

According to Fook, now is the time for the public to purchase properties as the base lending rate (BLR) is still below six per cent.

"As long as the BLR is below six per cent, it would not affect the number of purchasers in the property market," he said.

On the outlook for 2010, Fook said the residential sector will still be the main player in the property market in Seberang Perai and among the hotspots to be developed are Raja Uda, Bagan Lallang, Juru, Bukit Tambun and Simpang Ampat.

As for commercial properties, he said Bandar Sunway in Seberang Jaya will continued to be the prime hotspot and there is potential for new shop office development in the area. -- Bernama

Harbour Place goes to P.I.P. (19-21/03/2010)

PJD was at the Penang International Property Expo 2010 at PISA to showcase their products like Ocean View Residences, the latest installment to Harbour Place. Great deals and promotions was offered during this expo and it was too good an opportunity to be missed.

The Chief Minister also made an appearance during the expo as he went about his official tour.

He made a quick stop at the Chic Urban Living booth along the way.
