According to the agent, Matt Tian of Reapfield Properties, the property was in the market for six months before he met the buyer at an open house.
“The current owner was the tenant of the bungalow back then. He rented the bungalow for RM10,000 for about three months before deciding to buy it ,” he added.
“The family was happy living there as the housing area had good security. Also, because they had elderly family members living together with them, the 2-storey bungalow was more suitable for them as they did not have to go up and down the stairs so much,” Tian explained.
