The nearest LRT station is not really in a walking distance unless you want to consider a 20min walk. Even driving will need about 5 min if the roundabout is not in construction.
The show unit is ready for viewing and the official launch was on last Sunday 9 Aug. Non-Bumi units are fully book at the moment. However, interested buyers will need to put their name down in a waiting list and see if the bumi units are still not taken when construction reach 50%. Ground works not started yet.
Unit built area is about 1300 to 1390 sqf. Show units having a 12-feet ceiling, agents confirmed that is the actual height in each unit. Each unit comes with a sky garden, 3+1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms. Free kitchen cabinet. Free one carpark. Prices hiked about 10% since the first price announcement (before launch).
i guess most of you do not know about that place. it was used to be a big mining pool. one of the biggest in cheras. then they cover it n use it as a 2nd hand car showroom n now….an apartment. this is normal practice. but careful when buying.
vista puteri and pertama residensi still looks good sitting on it though…even if it’s a mining pool it has been filled about since about 30 years ago, most of the area was then used for terrace houses, shoplots and low rise flats…anyway, it’s up to individual choices. i just booked one unit at 16th floor, signing S&P tomorrow morning. :p
the place is on 99 years leasehold though,..the lease will stay till 29 March 2101, looks like a newly acquired land by some proprietor under the name of Kukuh Dinamik Ekspress S/B.
I wonder after this project completed in year 2012 are they going to consider to bulid another one in front of Vistaria and Villa Seri Puteri Condo? Since that area seems like to be hot cake area.I was told they will build shop lots there but how sure?
caleb, how come you managed to get 16th Floor, i tot all sold out? Which type you bought, KLCC view?
BY, you are right, no body can assure that the land beside the Vistaria site will not be developed. The Agent said the developer will have joint venture with the owner to build shoplots. But till now, the developer can’t produce any black and white to support what they promise. The land owner have right to build whatever they want on their land.
I think the land owner (now used for garbage truck parking bay) will also want to build condo since Vistaria condo is selling like hot cake even though the price is not cheap. Or they may sell to other developer at high price. Whether the Developer give any black and white now to confirm the land use which is not belong to him yet is not important. You can do anything except to sue him if next time another condo just build infront of you.
caleb, please think twice.
hi, caleb, how many free parking lot that the developer give to you. They are selling RM15K for one back to back and RM25K for a side to side car park. I think the price is too high.
I personally think that the Developer is inexperience in building a condo, even a simple letter issued to Purchaser also a lot of mistakes. The lawyer’s response also very slow. I’ve cancelled my booking, cant trust the developer at all.
caleb, the ceiling height is only 10.5 ft not 12 feet as seen in the show room. please double check.
Please also check the specification in the S&P, they never specify the size of tile used for eg: 2″ x 2″, they just simply put ceramic tiles etc, and others like power point etc also not stated in the S&P.
caleb, which type you bought? I also booked one at level 13 type A KLCC view going to sign s&p this sat,but hor dun know regret or not?
Hi all, thanks for the advices.
hi BY, i’ve bought type A1, the one not facing any tall buildings. don’t really like facing puteri/pertama residency anyway,…i can have my own country view with bedroom balcony haha…btw, will level 13 give you KLCC view? i signed the S&P already.
GY, i registered for the place even before it was launched, by then, all non-bumi units are booked. the response is pretty intensed.
Wong, when i went to meet the lawyer, he also didn’t agree to the developer issuing such poorly written letter to purchaser. they totally disregarded the booking fee we paid and still ask us to pay 10% d/pymt upfront. anyway things are cleared now. S&P signed 10% paid (minus the booking fee paid) and bank loan standing by. btw, did agents told you that the ceiling was 10.5 ft? S&P states that one free carpark will be given, I even have the lot no. written in my S&P just that not sure which floor. I don’t really mind about the tiles actually, was thinking to ask the developer not to do any flooring, thinking of wooden flooring. Personally, I like the place. Maybe the developer is a little inexperience but I believe they are very ambitious alright,…
caleb, the 10% (minus the booking fee) should be paid may be one month from the date of S&P, it should not be paid when signing the S&P. They must give time for those apply EPF withdrawal as EPF required S&P for the application. The agent and the developer also told me the ceiling height is 10.5 foot.
Caleb shld reconsider again for purchased one unit at vistaria.
I extremely doubt the ability Orlando’s developer to built it.
Structure of building is yet confirm such like height of ceiling.
Secondly, surroundingly land in doubt?.Piling works yet start?
Catalogues not specific any materials use and others infos.?
I just drop my intention to get one as I check all details!!
Guys..pls.reconsider as price is quite costly & located such places in cheras!!!Tx
I totally agreed with Velentino’s comments. I have booked 2 units before launching but finally withdraw after viewing the show unit and after clarifying with the lawyer and developer as well as Reapfield on few matters. Cant bear the risk if anything happen in the future as all promise now is not stipulated in writing.
Hi, all thanks for the comments.
hi Caleb, i’ve bought type A-no.6 (or C3), the one facing klcc,pgrm and D’alamanda condo. i signed the S&P already.
Saw all the comments and looks like more – than + then.
But I believe we can make 15-20% margin easily after this project completed. anyway,it’s up to individual choices.
is there a possibility to ask the agent mark up the unit price so that i can get full loan?
i dont think so the agent can do this.
hi all, i am searching actually planning to make booking tomorrow. But after reading the pros n cons. im a bit hesitated.
my intention is for investment purpose. U think its a good buy?
u were saying that u had clarified few matters with the lawyer, developer n the agent. do u mind sharing what were the matters that not clear had made u decided to cancel the bookings?
feel doubt after read all the comments…..
i’m just book a unit in 7th floor just now.
the agent told me can see the KLCC. now, im really doubt about it
dear mm, i’ve cancelled my booking (a unit which has KLCC view (type B)(2nd unit from the right))reason being:-
1. the land currently used by Alam Flora. The developer said they proposed JV with the land owner to build 2 storey shoplots. But it’s still in negotiation. The said land can be used to build condo if the land owner want to do it or he can sell it to other housing developer. It will totally block the KLCC view eventually. So for those who buy the KLCC view may have a risk on that. For those who buy the country side, I’m not sure whether you will see the cemetary.
If the land confirmed build condo next to Vistari Condo, will affect vistaria, wall crack, noice, dust etc.
2. The material specification is not mentioned in the Agreement.
3. Lack of experience in constructing condo. Foreseen a lot of problems arise in future.
My main concern is item (1), I do not want to take risk as the property is for investment purpose.
Dear Joe, if you book KLCC view, the agent told me is at least 8th floor, and if Pertama view, must be above 15th floor, please re-confirm.
Hi GY, i’ve booked one unit (13th floor type-A) facing klcc and i also double check with many many ppl about this matter,whether there is any condo in front of vistaria future.
Some of my frens told me the space in between vistaria n villa seri puteri are too narrow to built another condo in between.
Hi BY, the agent told me the same thing. But i’ve checked with certain people, they said can build if the owner want to do so. You can see Miharja Condo or even the apartment next to D’alamanda, two blocks are close to each other. From what i know is as far as the land use is for residential, then the owner can build residential units.
BY, when did you book the unit, i tot all have been sold out long time ago.
BY, unless U can make sure that the land is really used for commercial purpose, ie to build 2 storey shoplots as what the developer said, then it is saved. But even the developer bought the land, they may also build condo if profit margin is high. They can set up a new company with nominee directors/shareholders and undertake the construction work.
But if every thing is like what the developer promises, i foresee the property will appreciate. I don want to take a high risk like that, but high risk high return.
I made a booking few months back (somewhere in March) and at that time still got a lot units.
I checked with the developer Ms Oh and she told me this….
Our management try to get approval for shop lot from the authority.
Anyway…GY,u r right also high risk high return.but i bought it for my own stay.
BY, the land is not belonging to them, it’s belong to a Malay. The land is bigger than Orando’s site. How can they said they are getting approval fr authority???
Oh, that Ms Oh, the one who sign the Orando’s letter without full name and designation?
tat day i met the engineer. he said 7th floor is higher than the condo beside !
im totally no idea now !
Joe, you can ask what is the ceiling height, last time they said is 10.5 feet, so may be 8th floor. But Caleb said 12 ft, then may be 7th floor. But i still advise you to check around
i’ve asked the representative of Reapfield, they informed me the maintenance fee will be RM0.20 /sqft. 1300 sqft x RM0.20 = RM260. do this consider expensive?
i agree with GY, for investment this is too much of risk to take. I beleive still have other choices for investment in KL.
besides that… did anyone know the measurement of the swimming pool & GYM of Vistaria?
I bought 1 unit at Villa Tropika(near by D’Alamanda) for own stay. When i bought this unit, they mentioned it comes with Gym… After i moved in only they start to provide the equipment
After few years, the gym only have a few dumbells, 2 benches, & 2 cycling machine. Honestly i felt cheated on that so call “facility”.
maintenance is always a problem !
but, tell the truth.
im like the location.
if it built another condo beside.
im will buy again.
I booked a unit but yet to signed S&P due to bank loan delay. I passed vistaria build area by few times, show unit wasnt open during office hour, and still no progress on construction. anybody know when they will start building it?
i seriously agree with Joe, Maintenance non-stop giving us troubles.
what i understand fr d developer (Ms Oh again) she said after chinese (7th) month only they will start do the clearing and start do the piling works.
Maintenance fee 20cents for low density condo is normal actually even villa seri puteri also the same.unless they have few blocks with 500-600 units all then maybe 12-15 cents/month/sqft.
I tot 1st and 2nd year is flat rate at RM150 pm? Is this stated in the Agreement. Even if the rate for the first two years is low, the subsequent year may increase if the fee cant cover the management cost. JMB will be formed within 1 year of vacant possession and takeover the account and losses (if any) from the developer. So it will have no different whether the developer promises a very low maintenance fee for the initial year or not, cos 1 year later, they will hand over everything include the messy account to the owner.
may i know wat is JMB ??
non bumi lot all sold out aldy.
now waiting for bumi lot to open.
they said will increase 2% after bumi lot open. mean that, start to make profit aldy ??
i have 2 lot of s@p,it will make 25% profit
hi, I oledi sign the s & P, I bought 1 unit at 11 floor….
Since then, I dun think we need to worry so much… Cos the end financier are Public Bank.. It seems like Public Baank are very kiasi and kiasu, i think there’s no problem with the developer.
After all the bank oledi survey all the developer b4 the bank
agree to be the end financier… Dun worry… everything will b alrite…..
After all, all KLCC view every part of KL area will be no view, as all developer spot all the KLCC view before they build any condo..Im not so concern about tis …. anyway im more concern of comfortable when we live in, convenience for me to go to work daily without a bad jammed…
I saw the banner at site, another end financer peroject by public bank what is that meant actually?
End financier means will take in charge of the developer deposits from Bank Negara if anything happen to this developer. Actually the bank is the most highest loses if the developer choa lau. If the construction hv reach 50%, government must take over to completed it… cos there’s a rule to protect us.And they still hv deposits in Bank Negara. Afterall the Public bank officer will check everything in progress before the bank release the $$ to developer. If project not completed or abandon, the bank who rugi the most, so b4 any project they do, for sure they will check everything. Although Im not so
confident with this developer,( as still new in the market) but im 100% confident with Public Bank. So so not toooo worry, Public Bank will take care of it.
Hi nan, thanks for ur info and yours 11th floor facing klcc or cheras?

I just signed the s&p, the lawyer is very helpful.
Hi All Vistaria Gang,

what about the rest? free to meet up?
i bought one unit at 11th floor facing klcc as well.

U may contact PBB tmn midah branch, I managed to get BLR-2.3% and sign the LO oledi.
I bought a unit facing KLCC too.
I got from PBB first year 3.8%, the year after blr-2.3%.
Hi, BY, JJ, NAN n Agnes,
Looks like u guys are happy with your purchase.
r u guys buying for own use or investment?
U think its a good buy?
they told me that bumi lots now are thoses remaining ones. which is below 6 th floor i guess by now.
Whats your favourite of this projects.. dont mind sharing?
Can i know how much is your loan amount and who is the banker who handle the loan application for you? i may need the banker’s assistance.
I like the location there and it is for own stay.
You can contact En Shamsul from PBB tmn midah just mention to him you got it from me Chong taman pertama.
Me too, i bought it for my own stay.Location is good.
can i have the contact no. of En. Shamsul? Thanks.
another thing i would like to highlight in our s&p, they are using cement sand brick not the red brick for wall.With this kind of amount they sud use red brick.what do u all think about this?
PBB tmn midah branch contact no : 03-91300533
It’s been a long while since I last posted here…work’s taking all the time.
BTW, I’ve just signed the loan offer letter with OCBC. They offered me BLR -2.0 on first 5 and -2.4 thereafter. Agnes, I think you should check with OCBC as they had just added the project to their financing list. I’ve chased the loan officer (which happens to be an ex-colleagues and friend) for the last few weeks for this to happen..relieved it’s settled now. Heard from her that there are a few other taking OCBC for this project now. They even offered 40 years for those below 30 years old and with a bachelors degree. I can give you her number, if you’re interested, she’s nice and responsible.
Joe, JMB means Joint Management Board, it’s a board who will take charge of the condo management/maintenance.
Nan, I have the same thoughts about Public Bank being their financier, that’s one of the reason which gives me positive view about this project. Dad also giving me good views about it in terms of investment.
MM, from what I remembered, bumi lots does not only limit to 6th floor and below but it’s scattered around each floor.
Glad to hear a few interested party are already starting to respond here…JJ & BY, 17/18 Oct is ok for me, can celebrate my bday also haha. Can’t wait to see the piling work starts. Drop me a mail for further communications(email@example.com). Looking forward to see u all future neighbours :p
Did you meet the engineer in the sales office? I have tonnes of question for him lol…what’s his name?
i just signed s&p, mine is type A1, according to the brochure, A1 is 1343sq ft, but in my s&p, its stated 1381, anybody with A1 notice the same too?
Lets meet up on 18th October, Sunday, at 3pm.
I’m an A1 owner. Now that you’ve mentioned it, strange but I can’t find the the area in the brochure…which version do you have? However, I’ve found this site http://vistariacondominium.reapfield.com/2009/07/28/vistaria-condominium-type-a1/ which states type A1 is 1334 sqf.
Anyway, my S&P wrote 1381 too, same as what’s in your S&P. I believe it’s safe to stick to the spec in S&P since it’s a signed and stamped copy of the agreement. However, all these variants are a real mystery.
Its really unclear about the specification for the house, we need to obtain detailed measurement of the unit, ceiling height, tiles measurement and brand (according to them is white horse), power points (in S&P stated is sufficient points).
Does anyone requested this piece of information from the developer? If not, we should request this from developer.
caleb, my brochure is a softcopy sent by marketing agent, exactly the one you provided in the link. We will stick to the specs in the S&P.
So, A1 is 1381 sq ft, how about type A, B and B1? Anybody?
18th October, Sunday, at 3pm i’m OK.
Mine is type A 1393 sqft stated in S&P also.
Cool, so just JJ, BY and myself? How about Agnes, Nan, MM, Joe? Wanna meet up? Joe, maybe you can ask the engineer to join us :p
I born in Malaysia but now Australian and working in Hong Kong. Thinking of coming back to retire a few years time in KL due to more cost effective lor. I previously booked Connaught Avenue but due to reason foreigner must buy over 250K so have to look eleswhere. Booked unit on 10 floor facing KLCC Type B. So glad to see some good comments on this place and hope din make a bad choice lor. Just went up to Malaysia Consulate in Hong Kong to witness the S&P signing. Wish i was able to join yr 18 Oct gathering for chat chat but can;t lor.
hhmm… pls update me if anything..
Just to double check, did anyone of you paid any money to your lawyer when signing S&P?
I have paid 10% upon signing the S&P is that money u meant? or the legal fees?
Yes 10% as downpayment, what i meant was legal fees, sorry for not clarify earlier.
My loan is ZMC, which bank will absorb my legal fees, but apart from that, any money that you need to make to the lawyer?
Because upon signing S&P, lawyer demanded for RM300 as for processing fees, printing and stamping charges, which my agent didnt tell me anything about that.
Did anyone paid for that charge?
Shamala from Wang Kuo Shing & Co said RM300 is for disbursment fee
JJ and June,
You were right, the same Shamala told me to prepare RM300 for the disbursement fee when I went to sign the S&P on Aug. I questioned them about it coz usually developer will pay for the S&P legal fee. All the lawyer (Roger) can explain is that it’s part of the deal between their boss and the developer as they know nothing more about it. Called Owen from Reapfield and asked him too, he just clarified that the developer did not cover the disbursement fee, only the legal and stamp duty fee are paid. Strange, anyway, I thought it’s just RM300 and I just handed it over.
BTW, JJ, the ZMC package you got from bank will only cover your loan agreement (LA) fee, usually bank don’t absorb S&P fees. Unless you manage to hike the prop price in S&P before applying for loan.
I asked my bank to use the same lawyer for the LA, thought it’ll be easier for them to settle disbursement issue this way. But I heard the cons about it also. What do you guys think?
Thanks for the clarification on the RM300 disbursement fee.
Has anyone got a detail specification and measurement of your unit from developer? We need to get that because to ensure our unit are built up to spec. I feel unsecured without knowing the details.
I also booked a unit at 10th floor. Haven’t signed the S&P….All of u already signed?
U guys r meeting up on the 18th Oct? I wish I could join…
I got support letter from the Developer about the details specification.You may contact the developer if you don’t get it.
The developer sent it to you on your request or you just got it from them?
when n what time u all guys will be at the site? Hi by, u mean u got d details spefication which are not in the S & P ? i bought this condo from this Reapfield represensative name Johnny. May i know from whom u guys bought frm?
So we’ll confirm the meet up to be on 18th Oct, 3.00pm at the mamak opposite the building site? Anyone interested can join in. May I know who’s coming? :p
I wanna join….
Caleb, Tks so much for the clarification on the disbursement fee. I thought this was normal fee to pay. Sorry I can’t join on 18 Oct. But do kindly keep posted on meeting.
BA, I just signed S&P.
Nan, I bought from Reapfield, Owen. He seems quite ok.
I’ll be joining to meet up with all of you guys, future neighbors at the mamak opposite the building site at 3pm on 18th October, Sunday.
I bought my unit from Owen too.
Yes the supporting letter details spefication which are not in the S & P. The tiles size,free kitchen cabinet and etc…
I bought my unit from Edwin.
See you all on this Sunday 18th Oct at 3pm.
I bought it from Owen too, wow,…looks like Owen’s sales are doing good! lol. Btw, BY can you bring in that specs for us to have a look on that day?
BY do you have a copy of Type B specs?
Also I don’t like the kitchen cabinets plus furthermore only one sink. Owen saying after certain stage, there will be a package offer for changing cabinets, additional sinks added, bathroom sink change, shower screen etc etc. Heard it will be lower costing to have developer to do the job then to find outside contrator. Any one have any comment on this pls?
I think all are the same specs, the supporting letter only mentioned/listed free kitchen cabinets, wall finish, tiles size for every area.
I 100% agreed with you on the kitchen cabinets design looks very old fashion la…
Dear BY, tks so much! Yup the kitchen cabinet so lousy one. U think the package from developer will be more cost effective then to find outside contractor? sorry this my first condo in M’sia lar and need advice
hi,i m mu mu!happy to see that yr want to meet 2moro.here i got one suggestion, i bought 2 unit in this project ! 1. the agreement does not dated clear the current point. Do u know that the bedroom 2 don’t have the air con point ? all together only provided three air con point!it mill make us the big prom!so, can we claim from Orando ? how to appeal this ?
so how was meeting on 18 Oct? On Mimi suggestion on the air con point, any comment/outcome pls?
only JJ and myself turn up…the rest???
Can i have the contact no. of OCBC from u for the housing loan application?
Also, kindly ask if i have signed the bank offer letter, yet to sign loan facility agreement, could i still switch to other bank.
I’ve got the contact no for Ocbc…U give me your contact no so that I can get the OCBC guy to call u…=P
My contact no. 017-2061551.
Okie. I’ve already asked the OCBC guy to call u re yr loan. As far as I know, even u’ve had signed the loan offer letter and yet to sign the loan agreement, u still can switch bank….8)
Alternatively, you can call 016-3095789 Ms. Tan, she can do it real quickly… :p and make sure it’s BLR – 2.0 for first 5 and BLR – 2.4 TA. Yeah you are right, you can switch bank after accepting offer letter and before signing LA. Btw, I’ve heard they are revising and limiting the minus from BLR banks can give for house loans. e.g. BLR -1.5 next year.
Hey BY and JJ
Sorry that I let you guys up that day, couldn’t make it on time and I just figured I don’t have a number to call and let you guys know. My number is 016-3155302 if you guys wanna meet up again next time. :p
no worries we can always meet up one day.In case you guys wanna contact each other my hp is 012-3029 886.
Hi JJ, you are right man they are the cranes is in the site and they are doing clearing works now
I saw the cranes too,…looks like work has start to begin!
Thnk am going to start a group in facebook in replacement for this. This place is too public for sharing of sensitive information like emails, phone no. and other stuffs
Agree with you!
Please join: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=196149574357
I’ve made the group private to promote privacy for all members.
Just received keys for my apartment. Initial impression is fairly good, althought some minor improvement is requied. Would appreciate if someone is able to share thier views on the condo. BTW how is the response for the condo now, I am thinking of selling my unit.
Just collected the keys for Vistaria last week. Glad that I have invested in the KLCC view apartment. Think Developer did a good job on the workmanship and managed to handover the unit few months in advance.
I have just collected the keys, this is my third property. The workmanship is very good compare with my first and second property.
