my 2 cents worth to u, mate!
things for your pondering.
KDS is COMMERCIAL status therefore higher assessment bills and utility bills and etc.
Pines is kinda old but still 'tolerable'. you may want to consider Palma (low density with plenty of greens), Sophia, Pelangi. Alternative would be to hop on to Solaris Dutamas but commercial status again but with plenty of amenities or within your doorstep.
Laman Suria is also kinda okay.
I presume you intend to purchase Sunrise's property above others?
Else there's 2 condo sandwiched between the UOA villas and MKIS is also kinda good and affordable.
Tenants moving out.
Confirmed it is a trend. What the expat does is they are allowed a fixed budget for accomodation. So naturally they will always 'hop' onto new developments within their fixed allowance. I know a few expat (even with family) doing that for years in MK area. They just continue to jump to new developments till they leave the country.
Please note that with each new completion of new condos there, the surrounding condos usually drop in value (slightly) immediately due to existing owner's tenants moving out to the new phase.
hi kochin, thank you for the info, really appreciate it. ya, i prefer Sunrise's property due to good property management, visited Vista Kiara and kind of disspointed withe the upkeep though it's much cheaper than other condos within MK. Palma & sophia are both priced much higher than pines and pelangi. I am a bit worried about not having neighbours, not sure whether low occupancy will eventually translates into low collection of maintenance fee also

then revised the price to 400 and below....dun buy overprice kondo..
i agree 100% that's why have not been able to say yes and grab an unit, i just think that 500 per sq ft is really overpriced, but the owners have holding power i suppose, that's why still no deal until today
