5 things I like about Epic Residence: A happy buyer’s story

Business owner Encik Abdul Kadir has been living in Bandar Bukit Puchong and has seen the township transformed over the past decade. As his business involves commuting to and from Putrajaya, choosing Epic Residence was a natural choice due to its strategic location. Here, he shares with us five things he likes about Epic Residence.

Encik Abdul Kadir is a busy man. Despite scurrying between work appointments from Putrajaya to Bukit Puchong where he runs his business, he still managed to squeeze time for us.

“I used to live in Bandar Bukit Puchong BP10 developed by Bukit Hitam Development Sdn Bhd. In fact, we have stayed here for ten years,” said Encik Abdul Kadir.

Indeed, Encik Abdul Kadir lives and breathes Bukit Puchong. Even before Puchong, and by extension Bukit Puchong became a buzzing area, he has been living here since 2006 with his family.

“It is so convenient. It is also very near my office,” he explained.

However, for Encik Kadir and his family, investing in Epic Residence is more than just buying bricks and mortars alone. It also about moving into a place where they can call home and for potential rental income. As such, he values the soft touch that TAHPS Group’s staff has extended to him and his family during their buying process.

“As I am an existing buyer, they never fail to invite me to their new launches. As a result, we have established a very good relationship with the staff. The best experience was receiving our keys even before the due date handover date.,” he said.

Indeed, all these small gestures from TAHPS Group have gone a long way in winning buyers’ confidence, like Encik Kadir.

Here, he shares with us five things he likes about Epic Residence.

Good reputation of the developer

“First of all the reputation of the developer is important as I am doing a lot of business with the government which is located in Putrajaya,” he said.

Indeed, TAHPS Group is one of the oldest and most experienced Malaysian developer. This year, the group will mark its 110th anniversary. Since 1992, the Bukit Puchong township has grown significantly with development and sales of 5,495 residential units, 510 commercial and 410 industrial properties under its belt.

Strategic location

“The location is very conducive for my business. The surrounding area is already matured with easy access to my clients in Putrajaya, to the airports and to the industrial areas via the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP), the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE), KESAS Highway and MEX Highway,” said Encik Kadir.

In addition, Epic Residence is located within the growth corridor of Southern KL as outlined in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan 2016 to 2020.

Potential for growth

“I am always looking for growth potential for my property investment value so that is why I chose Epic Residence. Also, if you don’t buy today, the prices here may increase even further,” said Encik Kadir.

In fact, housing prices in Bukit Puchong in 2005 was around RM190 per sq ft. However, as the area has become developed with more infrastructure and amenities in place, housing prices have risen to around RM395 plus per sq ft.

With three federal mooted projects located in this part of the growth corridor of Southern KL – Cyberjaya City Centre, Malaysia Vision Valley and KLIA Aeropolis – the potential for growth is even more.

Safety

“Initially, we did have some problems when we first moved into this township. However, after we formed our community, the safety and security has improved. My family and I applaud the Bukit Puchong Community Apps and we are wiling to pay for it for our safety and security,” said Encik Kadir.

For the newly initiated, Bukit Puchong Community Apps is a unique safety and security application to ensure residents’ safety and well-being. With features such as Emergency Assist, Intercom Call, Real-time Notice Board, Visitor Registration and many more, Epic Residence’s buyers can sleep easy as help is just a finger tap away via the ‘Emergency Alert’ and ‘Call Your Guards’ buttons. Should there be a situation and you need assistance immediately, all you need to do is just tap the buttons in the Bukit Puchong Community Apps and help will be on its way.

On top of that, Epic Residence has a 3-tiered security system with access card to the guardhouse entrance, your private lift lobby and the basement car parks. Residents can also enjoy peace of mind with Epic Residence’s 24-hour security surveillance.

Facilities

“We have a very nice garden complete with a jogging track spanning some 800 metres. We particularly like the overall design of the facilities as it is so conducive for modern living,” said Encik Kadir.

Indeed, Epic Residence has a myriad of facilities for everyone to enjoy. They include a half-Olympic size infinity pool, a fully equipped gymnasium, changing rooms, a multipurpose space, a games room and a convenience store.

For children, they can look forward to the wading pool with a sunken sitting pit within the pool, a colourful children’s playground, kindergarten and a nursery.

For those who want to be at one with nature, Epic Residence boasts garden spaces complemented by lush greenery and picturesque landscaping.

Collectively, all these facilities have elevated the concept of luxury living within Bukit Puchong which has won the hearts and minds of buyers’, just like Encik Kadir.

#askmeanything with Prof. Joe Choo

The Southern Corridor of Greater KL is set to be the next growth area and where three major economic projects are being built  –  Malaysia Vision Valley, KLIA Aeropolis and Cyberjaya City Centre. As property prices here are still relatively affordable, we sat down with Prof. Joe Choo recently on what home buyers and prospective investors should look for when house hunting in this part of Malaysia.

Southern KL, where Bukit Puchong is located at, is the new growth corridor outside KL. Could you give us your take why this is so from a feng shui perspective?

Bukit Puchong is at almost the tip of the joining of two major expressways namely the NKVE and LDP. Therefore, it will benefit from the bottleneck created by theses two expressways. Finally, the earth energy here is being slowed down and subsequently bouncing back to Bukit Puchong which gives sustainability to this area. This has explained why it takes some time for this area to pick up to be a lively and liveable area.

 

There are three major economic drivers coming up here – Malaysia Vision Valley, KLIA Aeropolis and Cyberjaya City Centre. How will these three projects affect the overall feng shui of Southern KL?

These three areas are very far away from the Titiwangsa mountain range. First of all, let’s take a look at the Cyberjaya City Centre. The Cyberjaya City Centre is basically quite a flat land but with quite a small hill nearby. There isn’t any small stream or river nearby. Therefore, it does not have a very vibrant energy there. This has explained why Cyberjaya has been around for quite sometime and why it is still very, very quiet. In fact, developments here took place from the year 2000. If a place were good, it would have flown in ten years. However, it is still very quiet.

As for KLIA Aeropolis’ location, it is full of molehills. There are streams but no rivers. Moreover, KLIA is also there. This would bring a lot of unpleasant energy due to the frequency of the aeroplanes and electronic gadgets creating an unstable energy field. So whoever stays there, the energy will not be good.

Malaysia Vision Valley sounds as though it will be surrounded by valleys which is good. However, If the valley is between two mountains then it is not that good. If the valley is like a plain, like a bowl, that is surrounded by mountains, it is good. From the looks of It, it looks like this area doesn’t have much mountains. Comparatively, between these three, the best is the Malaysia Vision Valley. If you were to compare this with the other two developments and other residential areas or townships, they cannot harness the energy of the mountain. However, If you want to compare these three developments to the surrounding townships, then, they will need many, many years to grow.

 

Are there any things buyers must avoid when buying a home in this growth corridor?

When you want to buy a home at these three economic corridors, you must avoid buying near to KLIA. You also should avoid buying near schools, shopping malls and religious centres because when you have a lot of human forces, the energy of the individual house in the area will not be strong enough. Thus, it will become lopsided as the energy will be attracted to the public area. Also, avoid having a river behind your house. You must have highland at the back. These are the key fundamentals when choose a house.

Now, let’s take a look at Cyberjaya. This area has a very flat land there with a lot of lakes. Avoid buying homes around these lakes because they have no more earth energy. In feng shui we emphasise upon on three type of energy, cosmic, earth and human energy.

When we talk about cosmic energy, it is already there in the universe. For earth energy, it is up to us to choose. For human energy, it is based on the date of birth of every individuals. Since we have the choice to choose a land with vibrant energy, we should avoid to be close to any artificial lakes. This is because during the mining area, the miners have exhausted the energy of the earth by taking away all the resources. This leaves it with no more earth energy which means the land doesn’t have any energy at all. However, with that kind of land, you can make use of it to become a religious place or for an illegitimate business or even a casino. Another business that will be good is for a burial ground.

 

Now let’s talk about your talk at Bukit Puchong. What aspects of feng shui will you be covering?

I will be sharing the history of feng shui and the three types of energy which comprises cosmic, earth and human energy. In the earth energy, I shall explain the source of earth energy of Peninsular Malaysia. Very interestingly, I will share insights as to what happens when the source of the earth energy reaches Bukit Puchong. It changes the scenario altogether.

Besides that, I will shall the importance of the these three types of energy and how to harness them to select the right property for you to ensure that the property brings positive effects for you and the people living at the property.

 

This township is located some distance away from Puchong. What is the prospects like for this area in 2017 and beyond? 

The prospect of Bukit Puchong is just the beginning of a vibrant era. This is very similar to Ipoh.  Both Ipoh and Bukit Puchong, and by extension Puchong, were mining areas before. In the case of Ipoh, it slowly started to gain popularity and its property market has picked up since 2014.  Therefore, Bukit Puchong will carry the same weight or even more.

 

This year some are predicting it may be a good time to buy a property while others say it is not. What is your take from a feng shui perspective?

A  good time to buy a property will be the second half of the year. For the first half, the market is still very volatile. The second half will be more stable and you will see more available stocks in the market. The secondary market will be very good. The primary market is a bit slow this year. However, for next year, the primary market will be good
