TTDI & Bandar Utama - most amenities suit local family e.g. tuition class, music class, shopping centre, school, etc
I agree to stay in Bandar Utama as there are malls, schools, shops just nearby the area...it's also able to access to the KL in a short period. BUT ! you have to bear with bad traffic..thats the bad thing
Personally, I got home around Serdang, which also not too far from Sungai Besi..I think the area there is also good for raising a family...
I personally like Bandar Utama and Ara Damansara area.
Check out some of these neighbourhood info -
To raise a family.....considerations should be on one's financial capability( cost of living, prooerty price s in Sungai Besi are lower than those in TTDI and Bandar Utama), then his work place location (travelling time after work back home to be with the children), what school the children will be enrolled in ( no Chinese school in TTDI, there is one in Bandar Utama).....
Vince@vince 2602, I agree with your opinion. We need to consider our financial capability first. If one could afford to stay at the more exclusive areas where properties price are high, why not? It is a choice. If we bought a property at certain place to stay, it is because we like that area that we have chosen and maybe it is near our working place or for what ever reasons, we may not want to sell it even if the price appreciate over the years. Do consider, you sell it because you are upgrading to a better and bigger house or is it that you want to make some profits out of that sale. Will you be able to buy another unit at that place where you have been comfortably staying? You may need to pay higher than what you think....
I highly vote for:
3) 16 Sierra (although design houses not that attractive)
4) Sunway Eastwood
My criterion depend much on safety, good/quiet/peaceful neighborhood, all-in-one-place, good accessibility to all main cities and near to work place.
Currently staying in 16 Sierra, previously stay in Putrajaya and Cyberjaya (I own properties in both except 16 Sierra). Future will move to Sunway Eastwood Park Villa.
