    some of the owners are asking for $6 psf for rentals. I think they are just dreaming. They are just so bored and have nothing else better to do.

    yup.

    in your opinion, u think $11k or more for the PH is do-able?

    For this development, the ground floor units are partially blocked by all the lift shafts. So it will probably be quite dim even for the living room. So for the same price, the PH is definitely better.

    imho, unlikely. nearby projects' PHs are barely getting 9k plus. townhouses , real houses are doing 11k above, and their rooms are bigger. DR's bedrms are the "new generation designs".

    actually I personally feel the PH or larger units in general in this area are diff to rent out. At $4 psf, they demand at least a 10k rental. But for this area, other than schools nearby, there is hardly any other draw factor. Expats dun rent for NYPS/Chinese High/etc. For 10k they prefer to rent Newton/Orchard/etc. On the other hand, for 3bd at 6-7k, there are plenty of families that like the quietness and low density housing of this area.

    i share your sentiments and maintain my view that UOL ripped the VVIP buyers off.

    DR's rooms are already "quite big" by today's standards, albeit with bay windows. i guess the "newness" can offset their smaller bedroom size vs the older developments nearby. $4psf is actually $11k. maybe 1 or 2 units can hit but there are 48 such units. the rest had better be for owner occupation.

    I saw them being ripped off. I was at the showflat. but let me assure you they were happy to be ripped off. It was a privilege to be ripped off. people like us who have no inside connections was not given a chance to be ripped off. Most units were sold before the public were given a chance to take a look.

    the Wee and Co. did this :

    Rowee Low #01-07 1546psf
    WEC #01-11 1556psf

    plus I know
    #01-06 1546psf

    where can you find a development whose selling price, within 2 days, has a massive deviation of 15xxpsf to 22xxpsf ?

    ok I see the newly sold ground floor unit lodged:

    102 Duchess Avenue #01-02
    999 Yrs From 27/12/1875
    $1680
    3003
    $5045k
    26 Jan 11

    actually I think pretty good for the buyer, because 01-03 and 01-04 both were sold at a $6134000, a massive $1M more

    precisely! champion wily old fox!


    hahaha. so that's a 18% discount? this project is way underwater.

    so which is the final returned unit at duchess still unsold? think it was a ground floor unit too.

    Just a glimpse of what is coming for the rental market. The high end condos rental comes down and compresses the rental of mid end condos, then lower end condos

    The compression goes on, but HDB will be the last one to get hit and the impact is not that great as the rental is not that high to begin with.

    Ang Mos are also getting smarter and they are seeking bigger bangs for their bucks. Since early this year, I'm starting to see more Ang Mos staying around my HDB estate, eating at coffee shops and going to NTUC.
