    many enbloc cash rich may not be so interested with new projects due to its size and high psf, but since youngsters mostly keen with new sale and has aspiration to stay condo then parents end up helping them buy.

    Serangoon is RCR, not OCR.

    I like the Affinity site, it sits on elevated road, with a small side road in front. Those condos facing the landed houses will have nice views.

    The only drawback is the location - it's not easily accessible via MRT, I don't see why buyers should pay a premium.

    Where are the cash-rich buyers with plenty of money to spare from en blco sales proceeds? what's 10-20% premium to current prices to them? why don't they snap up the units if they feel they are getting good deals?
    CRL MRT station nearby, for those who know and those who don't.



    Interesting what a child know more about CRL MRT.

    Most who buy in recent OCR/RCR launches are not the Ultra High Nett Worth types who can own multiple units or the New Futura. Their bullets are limited. They need to assess carefully as this might be their only other investment property other than their own stay. The current new launch prices are indeed a little hard to swallow. If re-sale does not pick up too, I think we are in trouble. Where has most of the en-bloc liquidity go to?

    i attended a seminar, and the presentation was about $8 billion enbloc liquidity from last year, and the guy was so confident that the money will come back into the new projects. Wonder how is that linked to the initial launch results?

    In a typical old private development sold en bloc (not HUDC), owner occupier is about 60% and investor is about 40%. Most owner occupiers will buy resale to stay. Of these, some will buy HDB flats for retirement and some will buy old private resale so that they can move in. The investors can wait to buy and in no hurry to buy. If they should buy now, they will buy resale for immediate rental income. Almost all en blocers will not buy new launch.

    You are right, if resale is not picking up, it is not a good sign. Perhaps, more are buying HDB flats for retirement since aging HDB flat prices are coming down much faster since the Minister confirmed that price of HDB flat will become zero upon reaching 99 years. The money from en blocers are not flowing back into the market as much as property agents and property agencies are trying hard to impress the market.
