    This place seems like reviving again, but big problem is the road condition.

    Learnt that converted (from Bumi lot) Adda Heights Greystones house will be put up for sale by the developer soon. Indicative price is RM200K up on the previous sales price which will bring it up to over RM 1 million for an intermediate unit.

    I am not sure about other converted Bumi lot scheme; but according to a staff of the developer, sub-sales of these converted Bumi lots may not be straightforward as it will need to obtain state consent before the sub-sales can be finalised.

    that is the problem with bumi lot release units. nobody is 100% sure whether the title , when eventually issued, will not still have a restriction in interest.

    Re: Why Austin Hgts price lower than Adda Hgts

    Yeah, like I initially thought I would not be able to buy mine as it was a bumi release lot...

    My TNB deposit needs to be 800rm instead of 250rm as they say it is 3 phase, bigger than expected...sigh, gotta make another trip to top up the difference...

    May be moving to Austin Heights soon...to work in Jurong East 8am to 2pm 5 days a week and kids to study in Austin Heights international school....many people asking to carpool...

    Just asked agent this morning to rent out my Sg terrace and he already found tenants for me! So fast...awaiting more details from him...

    Looking forward to working less, spending more time with kids and saving more...

    Re: Why Austin Hgts price lower than Adda Hgts

    Decided not to move in for now as worried cannot take the daily commute and worried about k7ds education in international school. Will review the situation again when my 1 bedder condo TOP...best if have enough passive income not to work....ha ha...anyway, likely will wait till RTS is up if we want to move so that we can do away with Sg car...kids and I can then come to Sg together daily...

    Re: Why Austin Hgts price lower than Adda Hgts

    Nope. No kids. Only my parents moving in with us.
    Commuting 4-5days a week. I hope it's not too tedious.
    As we work odd hours. 12-9pm. (non-peak)

    :D

    Collected my individual title deed today and lawyer says with bumi release letter, we should be able to sell to anyone, bumi, non bumi or foreigners...feels funny to get the title deed with a 100% Sg equity loan....but happy nonetheless..

    The water themepark is coming along nicely and the surrounding new shoplots are getting tenanted out. Saw a 24 hr clinic and 2 japanese restaurents.

    We celebrated getting the title deed by trying out one of the Jap restaurent. Cheaper than Sg but hubby says not as fresh the sashimi...surprisingly no gst, only service charge for now...

    Will be spending a few days in Dec there...need to do some minor repair work to some parts of the ceiling...

    Rental market is quite slow there so we may lower our asking rent there. No enquiries after 2 months compared to my newly TOP Sg MM which got rented out in less than 2 weeks.
