    Reason is the plot size, view, and facilities are not able to match up. It may be an asian thing, but being "on the other side of the road" makes it less attractive for some. All these various considerations including location, internal layout, etc will be factored in. And the market will decide on the appropriate price.

    Yes, your reasoning is logical, different market segments I reckon.

    Recently, I spoke to a couple of friends who frequent Vivo, and told them that there are FH condos opposite Vivo, just need to walk 3-4mins. None knew of the projects existence, all of them knew Reflections and Caribbean though. Hah ...

    In any case, I realize that not many units are listed/available for these 2 projects. Owners seem to be holding very tightly to them.

    Property located right next to via duct is a terrible place to live because of noise dust and also femgshui. Plus right next to this development there is a freehold Malay cemetery. Definitely a no go for me even if it's freehold.

    Are you referring to the royal graves owned by johor sultan? I think that will stay for a long time. If you have issues staying beside the royal graves, then this place will not be for you definitely.

    Noise will not be a concern even at those units facing the road. They (Harbourlights, not sure about Telok Blangah House) have double glazed windows.

    Dust could be, I'll let you know after I stay there (Harbourlights). Heeee ...

    burial ground is a definite no go for property because any property that is located near cemetery will instantly turn off most property buyers. The recent saga on Sengkang columbarium is a good example.

    Having double glazed window doesnt change the fact that its noisy place to live. it only prevent noise from getting into the house by locking yourself inside.
