    a tad expensive for a lh development?
    And I have reservations about the integrated bus exchange within the development. this with the mrt and the nearby hawker and also the retail mall means the noise will be a huge factor and doesn't have the exclusive factor of condo living. though it's very very convenient and vibrant but not sure if the benefits of this will outweigh the cons? any thoughts?
    With so many elements.... chances of enbloc years down the road is slim.....

    i won't fancy this for personal living. good for renting out but can't imagine that my place will be tronged with crowds throughout the entire week

    I think en bloc potential is very very slim given that the interchange is integrated into the development. sorry singapore bus services is govt linked or entirely privately owned? in any case, it's a huge hassle to move any infrastructure down the road once it's been entrenched there.

    Yah, agree. Rental will be good for those who don't mind the noise

    fellow forumers - any good projects I can check out in the east or otherwise? I prefer those which are nearing top or within one year after top. budget is about $1-2 - 1.5 mil. quite difficult? 2 bedder or 3-bedder is fine.

    wahh... there are alot fitting your criteria... eastside so big... got D14, D15, D16, D17, D18, etc

    most might qualify for your quoted budget and question boils down back to your preference?... near MRT?... near school?... etc..

    I have an interest in this area already. so was hoping to "diversify". if it was OA and Esta I would prefer a 3 bedder but for 3 bedders, i don;t think 1.5 mil is achievable.
    Thanks anyway!

    i was just thinking about the opportunity cost of not buying now.
    the psf will not climb alot but neither will it fall alot, especially int he good districts i think the owners there will holding power and usually have a mid to long term risk profile. other alternative is to let the cash stay idle in bank and earn interest which is not alot.

    1.5 mil will not get you semi d at D15 or D16. maybe possible if it's a one story terrace with small land area. but then you have to spend money on reconstructing...

    For own stay - analysis should be different from investment.
    Own stay can be more about 'utility' from consumption and affordibility.
    Timing is less of an issue - just be happy about your dream home.

    Investors should be more concern about timing and return - coz there are always other investments that can give better returns.

    mine is definitely for investment.
    that's why i was comtemplating about the opportunity cost of letting the money be in the bank and evaluating that against other types of investment and one of which being property investment

    doesn't need to be near MRT or school.
    like OA or Esta area is not exactly near to school or MRT but I like this area.

    I will call this project as so so, other than the convenient location.

    Same as how I grade this project to the Centra at AMK by FEO.

    1. Project is at a very convenient location but been priced in

    2. Dun take lightly on the air and noise population of bus interchange/MRT/traffic. These come 24 hours a day....U can see all the bus bays, all are black smoke stucked to it...frightening...

    In HK, there are couple of office buildings that the ground floor are bus interchange. U look at those places, dirty, oily, dark, no fresh air...

    If u can afford $1400 - $1600 psf price for this sort of project, spend some time to look for a better place.

    This place is living for convenience but suffer from all many other things. I rather spend a bit more time on travelling and stay in a better condo with the same price.

    If you compare to banks depo rates then of course property is better.
    And if you're comparing to depo rates, I reckon you're new to all this.

    If you factor in other cost - some variable - then the return is less attractive. You have StampDuty+Legal (3%), reno (if any), agent fee, property tax. These 'suck out' some return.
    Then there is borrowing cost ...which can go up/down depending on the credit cycle. Play around with a mortgage calcular -very insightful.
