House, home, abode, sanctuary to create happy memories!

Would you rather buy a house near your office with expensive price tag or do you prefer to stay far from the office and buy a cheaper house?

I have been living with my parents all my life (ok so except during my uni days..but PJ and Cyberjaya is like not that far..so it doesn't count, does it?) and it is my ultimate dream to buy a house as soon as I got my confirmation here at my present job, so I can be eligible for the government loan, that's why. Haha. And since my office is at Jalan Duta which is surrounded by the elusive Hartamas and Mont Kiara area you can imagine the price of houses around here. Am I willing to pay at last RM220k for a less than 900sqf apartment/condo? Or should I buy in the Rawang area where the house is cheaper and not to mention bigger too.

This house at Changkat Kiara which is quite nearby to my office is priced more than RM1 million!

Other place to consider maybe is Puchong but I know the jam there is unsolvable and there's the toll to consider too. Of course I dream of a double storey house with lots of bedrooms for lots of future children (I dreamt of 5 kids but giving birth to Husayn was a traumatic experience to me! hehe). Deep down, I prefer a home in PJ more than anywhere else maybe since I grew up here and I thought for some unknown reason the roads and shades look comforting and familiar. But where do you find less than 300k landed property in PJ?

Oh well, I pray that I will make the perfect choice when the time came. Amin!

p/s: The flu attack is hitting me at the moment and I am having a headache right now (and to think it's only 8 something in the morning!). And the air-con at my office is not helping either..cepatla pukul 5.30!
And this is me right now..all red nose and feeling not that good

Happy happy weekend everyone!

hey, we're about the same pace! as soon as i got confirmed with the govt, hubby and i went looking for a house to call home.. since i'm thinking of transferring to ptjaya and hubby's working in bangi, we've decided to settle down in nilai.. bigger house at very reasonable price! it'll be a 30 mins drive to work for the both of us.. (agak jauh) but i'm sure it's worth it when u come home to a house of ur dreams.. good luck finding ur dream house!

i'm staying at Tmn puncak Jalil, kinrara.

currently menyewa. tp rumah kt tmpt mami teres 2 tgkt 4 bilik,2 bilik air. dlm lingkungan rm2000k. byk yg baru2 tgh buat. murah skrg sbb tk ada public transport sgt kecuali rapid yg masuk jarang2 aje. nk ke kl kena ikut jln klang lama dlm 30km jgk jarak dia.

jauh nmmg jauh tp kalau u sukakan rumah besar dan persekitaran tk sibuk, sgt la sesuai

I'm staying kat Kota Damansara (our aprtm). Hari2 lalu kat tempat yg u preview tu pi keja. Cantikkan. Tapi tak mampu nak beli. Hubby and I beli terrace house kat Subang Bestari. Next year baru leh masuk. Jauh skit tapi at reasonable price:)

laney,
ur so lucky u got to transfer to putrajaya sbb i think nilai, putrajaya, bangi and even kajang still have reasonably price house..unlike the area here! isk..

mommy lily
oo menarik jugak tu..tapi i heard lots of bad review pasal area tu sbb company talam developer area situ kan? betul kah? hehe..sbb selama ni dgr org cakap2 je..tak penah tgk pon..

imah ishak
eh dulu pun i nyaris2 nak menyewa aprtment salvia kat kota damansara tu. subang bestari ni area mana ye? tak jauh area subang airport ke?

nurmala
aah betol..penah pegi rawang tgk rumah kat bandar tasik puteri..cantik tu cantik dan harga pon ok..tapi yg tu jauh sgtla pulak ke dalam...tp rasanya sekarang byk jugak development baru tak jauh tol rawang tu ek?

mynie
ha bangi pon seems like nice area..tp sekarang rumah kat situ pon dah naik harga jugak ek..

kite lagik besh...keje kat kl, dok kat sg. buloh....hari2 travel pg balik keje 1 hour... nak buat canekan?? nak rumah dekat kenalah spend more utk beli umah, kalo nak umah murah dan affordable (especially umah landed) kenalah dok jauh tp ari2 kena ngadap jammed yg tak hingat....insya-Allah kalo ade rezki lebih, igt nak survey umah area setiawangsa...jwbnye kena dok apartment la plk... nak beli landed area sini perghh...mesti mahal...

Laney said...

senang je nak transfer ptjaya. banyak post! =) rumah still dlm pembinaan, siap 2010.. but dah start angan2 nak deco rumah mcmane nnt.. haha, boleh x? =p did consider rumah area bangi, but dah mahal la.. nilai is still cheaper and dah siap dgn township semua.. i like! sure every month beli kain nak wat langsir baru kat nilai square.. haha

thinking bout kL housing makes me miss my Miri house a lot.

btw, i prefer a house that not too far, if not close to my office. ada byk kondos surround the ofice, maybe i shud sewa one for a month :p nak beli tak mampu pulak rasanya.
