    Education has also been one of the primary factors taken into consideration when choosing a country to migrate for the family.

    For holders of Australian Provisional and Permanent visas, dependent children are entitled to free education under the Australian Government up to year 12.

    The Australian National Education is voted 4th best education in the world in 2017 based on their well-developed public education system.

    For a financially-able middle and upper-class Malaysian, quality education is often pursued through international schools and institutions.

    An average Malaysian would have to spend up to RM1.4 million over 12 years of education for each child attending one of the top 5 international schools. Given that a typical Malaysian family has an average of 2 children, these figures are doubled and will come up to as much as RM2.8 million for 12 years of education.

    This savings of up to RM2.8 million that most families have calculated ahead of time, can then be allocated as an investment for a large property in a suburb in Australia where the top state school is located.

    AMA has hundreds of proven and outstanding winning records in facilitating investors with their business expansion and investments plans into Australia.

    Chelliah is an expert in legislative migration and handling complex cases, he is a skilled strategist and also a well-known media commentator.

    With a 100% success track record, Chelliah has over 40 years of working experience with the Australian Commonwealth Government Immigration Department making AMA one of the longest serving migration agents in Australia.

    Tropicana Fills the Market Gap with Reasonably Priced Homes for the Modern Urbanite

    Tropicana Fills the Market Gap with Reasonably Priced Homes for the Modern Urbanite

    Tropicana Fills the Market Gap with Reasonably Priced Homes for the Modern Urbanite

    The unveiling of Tropicana Corporation Berhad’s new brand extension, Tropicana Urban Homes shows the developer’s dedication to fill the growing consumer need for high quality, accessibly priced homes.

    2017 has seen a booming Malaysian population and among the highest numbers of young working class adults in recent history.

    This has led more attentive developers such as Tropicana to cater to the market segment, building property to suit the needs and buying power of these home seeking adults.

    “Tropicana Urban Homes was conceptualised with young buyers, middle-income professionals, aspiring homeowners and new families in mind, who are priced out of the traditional property market. ”

    said Dato’ Yau Kok Seng, Group CEO of Tropicana

    According to the Malaysian department of statistics, the Median age for the Malaysian population is now 28 years old, signaling a higher number of working class adults who are around the age when the purchase of a home is among their top priorities.

    Tropicana, announcing the launch of its newest portfolio expansion under its Tropicana Urban Homes collection, has said that the development will see a total of 1791 modern apartment units at two of its award winning townships, Tropicana Aman in Kota Kemuning and Tropicana Heights in Kajang.

    The developer recognized the need for young working class adults to be based near the city, as transportation and length of travel time continue to be one of the segment’s top concerns. This has led to the strategic selection of the development’s location.

    Tropicana Aman is linked to six major highways including KESAS, the Federal Highway, LKSA, ELITE, and SKVE. The Tropicana Heights township is also conveniently 4km away from a transportation hub that harbours both, KTM and MRT stations.

    PRICED OUT
    OF A HOME

    The target demographic of young adults and families have been faced with skyrocketing property prices, properties now see prices ranging from RM 500, 000 and above without a corresponding increase in wages.

    Tropicana’s development of Aman 1 and Heights 1 counters the average overpriced home and sees a starting price of a mere RM236, 000, making it the sensible choice for the home buyer.

    Through extensive market research, the developer has also found and catered to the demand for self-contained townships and has designed Tropicana Aman and Tropicana Heights to be self sustainable so that every possible amenity is within reach.

    Tropicana’s idea behind the concept of a self contained township has led to the incorporation of amenities and facilities such as world class educational hubs, Central parks, Neighbourhood commercial spaces, and recreational hubs within the townships. This caters to the unique needs of young home buyers and families alike.

    With the increasing gentrification of the congested city areas, property prices within KL have skyrocketed so that green lungs within developments are now a rarity.

    But Tropicana Aman brings with the development a huge 85-acre central park which acts as not only a green lung, but also a recreational space with a with a linear lake and a centrally-located Clubhouse, ringed by a 100-feet wide tree-lined boulevard.

    The Tropicana Aman township has also been designed to be a walking and biking community. This has been achieved through the incorporation of a 7km long walking / biking trail to encourage a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. 10 link-bridges and 17 beautiful pavilions are also spread across the Central Park for the enjoyment of Tropicana Aman’s residents.

    Tropicana Heights also follows suit with 16 acres being dedicated to the creation of a Central Park that features a 750 meter linear lake, seamless pedestrian walkways, jogging and bicycle tracks, all complemented by beautiful landscaping and parkland views.

    Both developments have taken into consideration the various lifestyles of its residents and have catered in layouts suited to both families, and single working adults. Heights 1 consists of 1025 units that vary in size ranging from 449 sq ft to 1783 sq ft while Aman 1 consists of 766 units and is split into two sizes, 870 sq ft, and 1000 sq ft.

    These two maiden launches under the Tropicana Urban Homes collection is slated for a 2017 year-end release date.

    If You’re a New Homeowner, This Checklist Is for You

    If You’re a New Homeowner, This Checklist Is for You

    Buying a place to call your own is a huge achievement but let’s be real; your journey to settling in is far from over. We’ve decided to make your life easier by compiling the 5 things you need to lookout for as a new homeowner.

    1. Complete one section of the house at a time.

    Of course the excitement of getting a place to call your own can be quite overwhelming. So in that moment it’s only natural that you feel like an absolute champ who can work out the moving in process within days. But within hours, the adrenaline would have fizzled and all you’d have are unopened boxes in every part of your home. The best way to go about this is to map your way around. Start with one part of the house and work your way around. This way you don’t get overwhelmed. Don’t work on more than one section of your home unless you have the manpower to do so!

    2. Check once, twice and thrice

    Before you get the keys handed over to you, check every nook and cranny. If you’re buying your property from a previous owner, make sure the wiring and plumbing are functioning well. Is there a crack in the wall or ceiling? Are the tiles in the bathroom well laid out? Although there would be a warranty period for new properties, surveying the condition of the home before the keys get handed over allows the property developer or previous house owner to get things fixed before you move in.

    3. Invest in good air-conditioners

    We live in a country where the average temperature ranges from 20°C to 30°C. But we all know that most days the humidity indoors can be really suffocating! Which is why it’s really important that you spend money getting only the best air-conditioners for your home. A new air-conditioner truly worth checking out is the Hitachi RAS-VX13CG, Premium Inverter Air Conditioner.

    A new air-conditioner truly worth checking out is the
    Hitachi RAS-VX13CG,
    Premium Inverter Air Conditioner.

    This model comes with the Scene Camera Ceiling technology which scans the room using an image and thermal camera to locate people and their activity levels. Once it scans, it intelligently provides the best and fast cooling solution until the room is at an even temperature. The Hitachi RAS-VX13CG’s Air Sleep Ceiling feature on the other hand adjusts the temperature and air direction to suit your sleeping condition at night. There’s also the Welcome Breeze feature which provides you with strong blows of air. It provides a powerful start up with maximum fan speed that can instantly chill a room. With these features and more, the air-conditioner is able to work efficiently by reducing power consumption via its Eco Mode. Pretty cool right?

    4. Hire the right contractor or designer

    Planning on building some furniture or renovating? Or maybe redesigning the interior of your home? Whichever it is, be sure to do some fact checking on your contractor or designer. Look at their portfolio or at least do some research online about their company, experience and reviews from previous customers.

    5. Keep every single document and receipt

    This may seem like a trivial tip but it goes a long way. Scan all your housing documents and proof of payment for every single purchase you’ve made for the house. This way if you face a hiccup with the product you’ve purchased, you will not have misplaced it which usually happens in the chaos of settling into a new place.
