    You mean best in terms of rental yield? are you joking? for the price you paid for the sail, you will probably be thinking of capital appreciation more than rental yield I suppose.

    Nope. Not about yield or appreciation. TS yield is bad.

    What I meanis quality living. But different people might have different opinions about quality living. Some like HDB, some like older estate, some like new and quiet estate. I like the 2 MRTs, malls, concrete towers, sea, bay, garden etc etc etc.... at your door step.

    squall/regulator - No need argue la. I prefer HDB data.

    This is how I derive from HDB data => 2000/mth / 400k = 6% yield.



    From HDB data, only $1800 for 4 rooms. This is also coincidentally the national average as well. So bt. batok is not good, not bad.

    http://www.hdb.gov.sg/fi10/fi10297p.nsf/ImageView/CORPORATE_PR_23012009_ANNEX_E/$file/4Q08RPI+Annex+E.pdf


    And on average, selling price around 400k + - 10% from HDB website. I assume near MRT can get 2k rental. Even at 2.3k a month, still less than 7% yield.

    Bukit Batok 106 01 to 05 107.00
    Model A 1985 $330,000.00 Dec 2009
    Bukit Batok 621 26 to 30 90.00
    Model A 2003 $491,000.00 Dec 2009
    Bukit Batok 106 01 to 05 104.00
    Model A 1985 $385,000.00 Oct 2009
    Bukit Batok 124 01 to 05 98.00
    New Generation 1985 $320,000.00 Oct 2009
    Bukit Batok 625 06 to 10 103.00

They told me that supply for rental flats in bukit batok near the mrt is very low which explains the high rental in that area. Bt Batok is also one of the most desirable estates to live in with a very good mix of greenery and urban lifestyle (can stroll to Bukit Timah hil and nature reserve and yet it is close to a mall, all banks, eateries etc etc. and easy access to PIE/AYE and bukit timah area.

    Quality of living? Don't really agree TS (The Sail) is best lah because >1110 units. So cramp. Don't think the facilities can cater for so many units. I prefer those condo estate with < 200 units. More exclusive, less cramp, more chance to enjoy the facilities. Furthermore, don't want to live in the central city where you have F1, etc events happening and roads around are closed causing huge traffic jam and inconvenience to residents there and the whole surroundings swamped with aliens (ops, I mean non-residents).

    If buy to stay:

    Better to get somewhere along the fringe of the CBD due to the multiple ERPs you would be paying to get in and out of CBD daily. Plus the extra premium psf you pay for a unit in the CBD versus the fringe areas, you could jolly well get a larger unit (double the size) outside of CBD or buy a Lambo / Ferrari to drive and live in style than to be cramped in a small space surrounded by offices and white collar workers.

    On the contrary, if you like to admire office ladies (OLs) while sitting by your living hall, then city living is for u.

    If buy to invest:

    I think value of The Clift has room to appreciate given its lower psf as compared to the ones in Marina Bay or even Icon / Lumiere.

    Am tempted to get a 2 bedder...now going at approx $1500 psf..

    I would believe that the Clift will fetch a good yield in view of Icon current rental rates, apparently Icon has the highest rental yield even in last year economical downturn ( I don't think Citylight offers better yield). The Sail's rental is not as high as Icon due to the numerous ongoing constructions in its vicinity, but once the IR and the garden by the bay are completed I'm sure the yield would improve greatly.

    one good thing about the clift is the compact and efficient layout, a 2bedder and a storeroom is about 770 sft, not too small about the same size as a 3room hdb flat. Surrounding projects do not offer 2 bedders of such size. Hence, it is attractive to expats who prefer to have an additional room rather than the view with the same budget.

    Ask your buyer to see city fringe area?
