Symphony Lakeside Residence
The recent launch of the leasehold double-storey terraced Symphony Phase 3 Lakeside Residence @ Puchong by Glomac with min RM728k ( after 6 years from their last launch here) giving a sign that landed especially at this area with is highly sought after even with price tag by looking the ratio of number of people register for the ballot to available unit is almost 7 to 1.
There are totally 139 units available to the public but however a separate ballot for staff was conducted on a day before and seeing 50 units being “sapued” by the staff and left remaining 89 units on Friday ballot. Yes it is on normal weekday – Friday! and not the usual weekends Saturday or Sunday.
This means this ballot is really only for serious buyers where those salary earner has to take 1st half day leave and start the registration as early as 900am. Not to mentioned due to this area is well known for its notorious, to avoid caught in the traffic, there are some people reaching there earlier than that. Out of this 89 units, 54 units are for non bumi and 35 for bumi. So talking about chances…..
Looking at the number of available units for non bumi, no doubt there will be a lot of people ended up with disappointment and empty handed. The ballot started approximately 10am and ended around 1037am . So the whole suspense and thrill only lasted for 37 mins. At the end of the ballot, all non bumi taken and the bumi still available.
With the current subsales price of the YTL’s Lakeedge asking around slightly below RM1mil, this make Glomac’s Symphony looks such a good buy! Ofcourse, who does not want to have a piece of this. Although both projects are near to each other, but I can tell the different in class, execution and finishing.
According to one of the taiko here who went there on Saturday just to “see” around, at that time 28 units of bumi still available. Beside that, current phase 1 design is a bit old fashioned and rundown condition which does not give a very good impression to Lakeside. Phase 1 is having its own entrance and not sharing with other phases but it seems like Phase 2,3,4,5 will be sharing one common entrance. I am not sure how will be traffic like in the morning during peak hour?
There is also hearsay the next phase will be approx 10% up but this is all just speculation.
Anyway, it is still a good buy for the price and congratz for those who got it and for those with empty handed don’t be despair, there will always a better buy!
