I've always wanted to live in Ara Damansara. I like that area. But most of the properties there now are not quite affordable anymore. And traffic quite bad especially after office hours. I wanted to buy Urbana Residences last time, but it was fully sold :(

I visited the Pacific Place area and also the new Evolve Concept Mall about 2 weeks ago. I love it! Can't wait for it to fully opened. And I personally think Pacific Place is a good piece of investment. Right next to the Evolve Concept Mall and the LRT station is literally outside it. Regret not getting it during their launch. It was at a good price.

A spill over from Subang Jaya. Good location with good amenities in that area. But traffic is horrible due to limited routes to get in and out. Good for investment, as you can rent it out to doctors and nurses who work in the hospital over there.

I find that the properties there are very pricey... rush hour traffic is really bad.

2377c26770344851952265959f1eb22f small

I think most of property located at prime area, are facing traffic problem. Not to mention during rush hour. All will face the same.

James Bob.... FYI , Urbana Residences was fully sold within 3 days of launching.

@seanvoon, oh my!!! Well, saw the showroom and it's really beautiful and reasonably priced too. So, come to think of it, I am not surprised! Buyers must've been eagerly waiting for it to be launched. Guess I have no luck.

It's a good neighbourhood. Lots of good developments, mostly high rise, nice condos. Some neighbourhood malls. Hospital. Restaurants. Not sure if there are schools, colleges or universities there? If yes, then it's a plus point.

Although this neighborhood is good there are 5 condos that will be ready at around the same time next year.

Which will put pressure on rents.

P  2c3e50 small

ZZ, which are the 5 condos, pls name them for knowledge. tq.

Zikri white small

Urbana Residences, Potpourri, H20, Ara Greens and Eve Suite. Two which are already ready this year, Hijaun Residences and Pacific Place which are relatively empty. There is also Maisson which expected early 2017. Perhaps there will be more takers once the LRT is really ready.

It is a great location as amenities are aplenty with Citta Mall and Oasis Damansara just a stone throw away. However, traffic congestion during peak hours can drive one crazy, as we all know the Subang Airport Road is famous for traffic jam, especially when its raining!

James bond craig junio2006 small

Ara Greens is beautiful too, but it's way too expensive!

There are a few development which some have completed to have such an amazing outlooks and designs but the pricetag is just too..... Hard to get a loan for these units nowadays.

P  2c3e50 small

3 LRT stations in the vicinity - Glenmarie, Ara Damansara and Lembah Subang...

LRT, Own stay actually not bad for G&G landed. Got Tesco and nearby other amenities as well. The only thing is no good mall

Img thing small

I bought The Centum (SoHo) @ Oasis and it's been left unrented for almost a year now since handover of keys. I was so desperate I actually wanted to rent it out almost half the market price. But some agents told me it's over supply. But I think it's also because the amenities there are not ready yet, such as the commercial shoplots and stuff. So, I am patiently waiting. It's a very nice area, but provided nearby there's amenities such as shopping malls, LRT, restaurants, etc.

@veron I would definitely rent it out for lower, beats servicing the loan with zero income. can always increase in the future when come to renewals

Img thing small

@ivanyap, yup I have already done so. Apparently current market price for rental for The Centum is about RM2,000, I am willing to rent it out at RM1,000 posted a lot of ads and appointed many agents to help me rent this out. Still no takers :(

Linkedin small

@veron i notice that centum is designed more to office use than residential. is that right?


Img thing small

Yes, that's right. When I first bought it, they told me it's SoHo, but after handover of keys, they said it's actually SoFo or SoVo, which is purely for office use.

P  2c3e50 small

Serious?? Half price also can't get a tenant... that is really bad!

Kate chew small

Is this because of the market slowdown or perhaps amenities in Ara Damansara is not as complete as other hotter locations?

Img 20151130 152928 small

I did notice theres many units are vacant there. Sorry to hear that Veron. Just hope for the best.

Linkedin small

@Veron yeah at this time, commercial properties will take a while to let out. generally commercial properties need abit of holding power. good luck in renting out your unit!

Its the usage as office thats make it more difficult. Somemore timing not that good since economy slow down now


Img thing small

Thanks for your words of encouragement @JLean & @ivanyap. Ya, @Jonathan de Ho I guess it's the timing for now.

Hey Veron, 

Am interested in ur SOHO, pls pm thx

Img thing small

Yee Sasa Ace, are you an agent? Because I've appointed a lot of agents. Could you share your contact details with me, please?

Kate chew small

Ara Damansara is generally a good area I would say. There's quite a number of shopping malls there and new one just came up called Evolve Concept Mall. Lots of nice condos around too. Used to be quite reasonable in price. 

Is the LRT station there ready in operation? I think this would really help.

Market now is slow... not just property but overall other industry as well

That makes businessman think twice now

Img 20151130 152928 small

Yea, the market now seems to be slower. I do notice some price depreciation for certain property. Some even turn out to Lelong as they have a base price in it.


943ad347aca24ee9949114a9ac3fd682 small

There will be more lelong but dont expect secondary market price will really drop. But as usual back to the question of how many of the buyer have much cash to buy now for secondary market which need to pay min 10%. and lawyer fees etc

Img thing small

Yea, I actually received several SMS from some agents saying there's bank lelong for The Centum Oasis unit for RM381k for 739sf unit, whereas market price is actually RM580k :(
