“The seller is a property investor and he owns two units here. These bare units were left vacant over the past three years,” said Shimry Wong of 1TPE Realty, the agent who closed the deal.

“I proposed to the seller that I will find him a buyer for one of the units to unlock the value since he has no plans to stay in or rent out the property,” Wong noted.

Meanwhile, the buyer, who was staying at a condominium nearby was looking to upgrade into a bigger unit for his growing family. Wong said the buyer liked the unit from the first viewing.

“The buyer was initially concerned with the leasehold tenure [of the property]. However, he liked the location, the built-up size and the beautiful lake view,” she said.

The buyer offered RM2.6 million and the seller agreed. “The transaction was a smooth one and everyone was happy,” said Wong.

According to her, the current asking price of semi-dee units in Armada Villa is around RM2.6 million to RM3 million.
