Built-ups of the homes range between 1,080 sf and 1,400 sf with prices of between RM90,000 to RM158,000, while the many units for auction are being sold at as low as RM35,000.The many houses for sale in Bukit Sentosa 3 are being sold as partially or fully furnished, with a good many still being sold bare. The bare units come only with sanitary ware and basic aluminium basins and taps, while the partially furnished units come with kitchen cabinets. Although it is an old development, there are many houses still being sold bare as the owners never moved in.Bukit Sentosa 3 does not offer its residents anything in terms of facilities, as the developer did not provide anything aside from a football field whereby in the corner of the field is a small little surau. The area is however close to the many rubber estates and plantations in the area, offering lots of peace and quiet if not scenery.There are a very small number of eateries near Bukit Sentosa 3, although there is nothing fancy at all.

There are a couple of secondary schools within 10 minutes by car, while the closest primary school is about half an hour away and the Aniza Medical Centre at 10 minutes away.Bukit Sentosa 3 is connected to the North - South Highway via a series of inner roads that serve various other housing developments in the area as well.

  • Analysis

    Talam Corporation is best known in Malaysia for its poor quality developments, bad service and numerous abandoned and failed projects. They are also known for charging optimum prices to customers while using the worst quality products available. After going bankrupt, Talam Corporation then tried to then change their name to Trinity Corporation Sdn Bhd which caused a lot of confusion as there is a reputable developer in the market called Trinity Group Sdn Bhd who focuses on developments in Puchong and Bukit Jalil. As the confusion caused Trinity Group Sdn Bhd much monetary losses, a court case then ensued to stop Talam Corporation from using "Trinity" in their name; a case than Trinity Group won; therefore, the developer then decided to change their name to Talam Transform Berhad. After changing their name, Talam Transform then decided to start a build-then-sell project in Puchong as well as work on layout changes in Bukit Beruntung. The houses in Bukit Beruntung were marketed to be the second "Petaling Jaya" but failed miserably as the Kuala Lumpur International Airport which was to be tentatively built there never materialised. As such, Bukit Beruntung is now considered to be a ghost town, as it is too far away from civilisation with a very minuscule population. Most of the houses here are also falling into disrepair as its tenants never moved in.Many buyers wanted to sue Talam Corporation for the misrepresentation of Bukit Sentosa 3 during their purchase, but unfortunately no cases were won. While other outskirt areas of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur are blooming, Bukit Beruntung remains to be a completed but unwanted project, opined to be unsuitable as either an investment or as a permanent home.
