    Analysis

    From the outer look, one can notice that Almaspuri together with its twin brother Angkupuri, are both having average-Joe facade and being sandwiched between modern residential in the area. Even though both condominiums may look less appealing, but their price tag seem not make too much difference from other Mont Kiara's condominiums with a higher Sunrise reputation. However, when one looks deeper and compare other faceless condominiums built around the same time as this condo, e.g. Palma and Pines, Almaspuri with its classical design stands out as one of the better looking ones around. The management seems capable, being able to maintain the compound cleanliness as well as the facilities provided. The management has to be given credits though, being able to give the property a fresh coat of paint in 2007 without having to ask the owners for cash unlike some condos nearby. Take note that most people assume the best management in the area is provided by Sunrise, but ask any resident of Sunrise properties and they will tell you otherwise. Almaspuri has one of the highest occupancy rates (more than 80%) within Mont Kiara, a reflection of management effectiveness. Historically, the selling price for Almaspuri has appreciated by about 3.18% per annum from the year of 2003 to 2006. As per all properties in Mont Kiara, rental has depreciated due to the increase in supply. Comparing it with other newer and fancier condominiums in the area, this condo still commands a very respectable return on investment. A well renovated unit at Almaspuri can easily generate a net return of more than 5% at today's prices. Compared to the other overpriced newer properties, which in some condos are difficult to rent and if rented generates much poorer yields. Tenants who have in the past moved to newer developments like i-Zen have returned acknowledging the tranquility of Almaspuri. One can walk peacefully under the foliage of matured tree lined paths to those important facilities like the Kiara International school, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, post office, banks, and McDonald's. When looking into buying properties the main 3 rules apply. Location, location and location. Most of the newer developments suffer from poor location either being too close, or worse just next to busy major highways or the wrong side of Mont Kiara such as Segambut Dalam. Mont Kiara Meridin, one of the newer developments just a few hundred meters further down, suffers because of its location - modern and clinical white. Why are the expatriates not making their homes in Meridin? Garden and swimming pool in the sky, once those gimmicks wear thin, one soon realizes one is entombed in concrete with not a tree in sight. Not Almaspuri. It has warmth, it has character, it is homey. Go to Mont Kiara at night and look at the condominiums. Look at Almaspuri and its sister development, Angkupuri. Look at the lights in the apartments, which are mostly lit up and not empty.

    分析

    Almaspuri与其“双胞胎兄弟”Angkupuri公寓的外观设计大同小异,实属一般风格,且有如三文治般夹在此区多个时尚的住宅房产项目中,尽管外观看起来普通,可房价却与Mont Kiara其他公寓相差无几,甚至与著名发展商Sunrise旗下的项目价格旗鼓相当。但此区同期兴建的多个公寓设计毫无特色可言,如Palma和Pines,若与它们比较,Almaspuri经典的设计感念,还能脱颖而出,吸引路人目光。Almaspuri的管理层能力强,公寓设施保养良好,周边环境清洁,甚至在没有要求屋主另外付费的情况下,在2007年重新粉刷公寓。多数人或许会认为此区提供最佳管理服务的公寓是Sunrise旗下项目,可若询问居住在Sunrise项目的居民,他们会否定此说法。Almaspuri的入住率超过80%,可说是Mont Kiara区最高入住率的其中一个房产项目,这主要归功于管理层的高效率。可在入夜时分到Mont Kiara一趟,看看Almaspuri和Angkupuri公寓,你会发现几乎所有单位都亮着灯,证明房子空置率低。资料显示,在2003年至2006年期间,Almaspuri的转售价每年涨幅约3.18%,而Mont Kiara的所有房产项目,租金都随旺盛的需求而稳步增长。相较于此区其他更新颖和时尚的公寓,Almaspuri的投资回酬仍算不俗。以目前的售价为例,一个装修后的Almaspuri单位,可轻松地取得超过5%净回酬率。这区部分售价过高的新房产项目,普遍上都难出租,即使成功出租,也只得微少的回酬。搬迁至新房产项目如i-Zen公寓的居民,都会念念不忘Almaspuri的静谧优闲,步道两旁树林林立,居民可悠闲步行至邻近的便利设施,如Kiara国际学校、超市、餐厅、酒吧、邮政局、银行和麦当劳快餐店。置业最重要的考量点是地理位置,此区多数新发展项目会陷入失败窘境,都是栽在“地点欠佳”这一环,要不过于靠近大道,要不就更糟糕 – 直接座落在繁忙大道旁,抑或是设错在Mont Kiara区的另一端,如Segambut Dalam。在数百米以外的新发展项目Mont Kiara Meridin,也因为地点欠理想导致乏人问津。为何外籍人士不选择以Meridin为家呢?它的设计风格时尚,以简洁白色为主,花园和泳池都设在顶层,可是却掩埋在钢骨水泥中,四周被层层建筑物包围,感觉冰冷无人情味。另一方面,Almaspuri则让人有家的感觉,温暖兼富有个性。
