With just a glance, the flat looks run down. The paint is already tired. According to an agent who specializes in the area, Taman Halaman flat will be repainted this year in 2011. If the flat is repainted, there is good potential for the flat to appreciate further, or at least experience an increase in its rental rate.
Taman Halaman is suitable for families with tight budget and still within reach from the city centre. A landed house at about RM200,000 seems so scarce nowadays as most 2-storey terraces in the area are priced at about RM400,000 – which are bigger and look nicer.
