    I'm posting on The Glades thread because, as mentioned, I am thinking about buying. However, the closer I look at SG property the less I understand it (the logic seems broken).

    I agree with the comment about the tiny units. So small it feels like a prison cell. This is a suburban development, not city. Rather than raise the price they shrink the units and hope we don't notice

    I had an agent tell me to expect The Glades to launch at minimum 1550 PSF. That means those "good facing" 1 or 2 bed could be 1700 PSF. Working on a 2 bed at 721 sqft that's 1,225,700. I checked resale units at Optima and for a same sized pool view high floor unit owners are asking approx. 1,200,000. So why would anyone buy The Glades? Optima can fetch rental income or be lived in immediately, The Glades is years away. It's a genuine question, I am confused. It will surely sell out in the blink of an eye. Is there a "more money than sense" attitude creeping in?

    Are the government really trying to cool the market or are they just trying to fill their pockets

    This is a bit of a controversial post But that's what the Internet is for, right All genuine questions.

    hi Idiot... NEW is always better to most.

    much like how men prefer to have virgin wives. some more buying a house is like one of the biggest commitment of a lifetime for most.

    nice concept but not really practical for the convertibles. esp if they price it at a premium just for that.

    for single person, most likely end up doing everything from the main sofa. it looks spacious enough for one to sleep on anyway.

    for two pax, maybe then they can have some fun and exercise while converting and transformers mode here and there on a daily basis.

    Poor jolin looks very busy converting and transforming. Cannot imagine doing this everyday. maybe after the 1 year warranty period, the transformers will start falling apart haa haa.

    But Optima only just TOP. How long does it take for it not to be considered NEW anymore? 6 months?

    Hehehehe just though that a completed house that can be income generating and lived in should sell for more than a plot of grass. Just giving a balanced view. Since the money in SG property is seemingly limitless then let me try to balance this in my own mind my by say those Optima owners are dumb and they need to jack up the asking price

    Pull-down bed? OMG. No thanks. That style I don't like (personal opinion).

    dont get me wong.... i actually agree with u.

    one of my tactic has been to buy only those that near top (within 6 mths) where their full price potential has not been reached.

    Mechanical parts are subjected to wear and tear, and you risk limbs and head injuries. They are also not cheap and a hassle to use.

    i also worry about such beds and storage that need u to open up and down...eventually the parts will spolit one. based on previous experience, must be gentle when handling retractable mechanism.

    last time my parents storage bed also not good, after sometimes, the drawers cannot pull out easily and start to wear n tear.

    i also dunno why would a person of 1 bedder SOHO will want to waste space on 2 beds (based on video example). Unless u r such a generous host who host ppl to stay in ur house almost weekly, otherwise, ur 1 bedder sld be designed according to your needs and not to how u want to cater for ur guests.

    hahaha that's funny.

    Seriously though, your dining table is a retractable plank of wood, your office desk is a retractable plank of wood and your bed is a retractable plank of wood. Not to mention that the integrated sofa looks like an uncomfortable plank of wood. The moveable wall, I don't really know what to think; not sure whether to think it's creative or ridiculous. It's a bit like a hotel suite, nice to stay for a few days but I wouldn't want to live there. This is just my opinion (and I'm entitled to it, as they say). Anyway, I'm still sure they will all sell out within 10 minutes. Anyone on here really like the concept and will buy?

    afterall, our living condition isnt perfect, tidy and clean like the video.
