Buying a home: Tips for new parents and growing families

Are you looking for a new home for your growing family? There’s plenty to consider especially if you have young children or a baby on the way. Fret not, we’ve done some of the homework for you. Here are some of the common and practical things to consider in your search:

A space for everyone
family home

Are three bedrooms enough for your family or would it better to have an extra room? If you have two or more children, having more rooms and space to accommodate everyone is most definitely a must as there will come a day when each wants their private space, away from their siblings.

Homes at Bandar Baru Sri Klebang (BBSK) have three or four bedrooms. More so, our floorplans are flexible and can be changed up from a room or empty space into a home office or a classroom, and even a make-shift gym. This helps you make the most of your #HomeLife in comfort, what with the longer hours that we now spend at home working while our children study.

Have a look at our collection of homes here, your ideal home may just be a click away.  

Location, location. Did we mention location? Bandar Baru Sri Klebang BBSK New Homes

It’s always good to remember that buying a home also means becoming part of the neighbourhood. Our primary concern is the safety of the place we live in while convenience is equally important. We want to be able to move in and out of our homes without fear and sleep soundly at night. Made up of various guarded precincts and complemented by ample green spaces, Bandar Baru Sri Klebang (BBSK) is an ideal location for children to grow up in. Not only will you be able to provide your children with a safe environment to grow up in but you will also be able to let them enjoy the outdoors, which not many children get to do these days.  

We also want to be near schools and recreation facilities with abundant options for grocery shopping a stone’s throw away. Well, BBSK is close by to nine different national schools and international school, Tenby Schools. All of them being less than 20 minutes away. And, did we mention that the most buzzing kindergarten in Ipoh, Kinder Labz is soon to be  spreading its wings to this thriving neighbourhood? As for shopping, BBSK is just minutes away from Aeon Klebang, Econsave, and Mydin Hypermarket.  

Living in BBSK also means you’ll be able to make use of the extensive facilities at The Centro clubhouse. There’s a fully equipped gym, an 18-bay driving range, 25-metre swimming pool, wading pool for children and a café.

New vs Preowned Home
New Home With Kinta Properties

“Should I buy a preowned home or a brand new one? Which is more ideal for my family?”. Here are a few points for you to compare;  

The price of a new home is typically higher than a preowned one as it is new and comes with a warranty. You can expect discounts or rebates (stamp duty exemptions, early-bird discounts, etc.) when it comes to new homes but there are no discounts whatsoever for preowned homes.

Learn more about Stamp duty exemptions here.  

Under the housing development act (HDA), new houses have a defect liability period of 24 months (individual title) or 36 months (strata title) starting from the date of vacant possession, where developers are to fix any issues related to the houses built. This means you still have an avenue to complain and have the developer get things fixed in your new house whereas you are on your own when it comes to a preowned property.  

House choice and condition
Being the first owner of the home, everything from the foundation right up to the fittings are going to be in their best condition. You also have the flexibility of choosing the type of house, floor plan and direction that the home faces unlike an older home where what you see is what you get.
