    I've been staying in the general vicinity for 22+ years, 1st in Sembawang (near Nee Soon Camp) and now in Woodlands (near S'pore Sports School). the helicopter flight paths are above this area. The choppers fly day and night regardless of weekdays and weekends and u can hear them very audibly. The frequency increases as Aug approaches coz of the practices for NDP. U can even see parachutists jumping out for a few months before that.

    My 3-yr-old boy is thrilled to see them. He spends hours sitting at the balcony at my parents' place (Sembawang) watching the choppers fly by and this happens every few minutes. when they fly at nite, it can be as late as 9pm+. I know coz I "monitor" their timing for my boy's watching pleasure. Imagine how "sound surround" the chopper flying sound will be should u be staying at Northwood ;-)

    ask your lawyer on what is the purpose of caveats? Go figure.

    Caveat: A caveat is usually lodged by the purchaser to protect his/her interest soon after an option to purchase a property is exercised or a sale/purchase agreement is signed. We use information from caveats with "Options exercised" as grounds of claim to compute our property price indices. As the lodgement of caveats is voluntary, and there is usually a time-lag of a few months from the point of purchase of a private residential unit direct from a developer to the lodgement of a caveat for that unit, the transaction database in REALIS may not reflect all the units sold directly by developers.

    Sorry for not being clear. Purchasing home report from Streetsine required $25each for each unit, hence it is not feasible if we need to find out about multiple units.

    I saw the $506psf from a website. Will find it and posted the link here.

    what i usually do is to get unit number from http://www.streetsine.com/main.html
    (free) and get floorplan from http://www.singaporeexpats.com/housi...ONDOMINIUM.htm
    which also shows stack number. What other information r u looking for that requires fee?

    The proposed “NorthWood” Condominium features a chic resort- style tropical living, coupled with contemporary sophistication.

    “Living in the tropics……….. its about………………”
    The tropics are a hotel bed of botanical exuberance, with their intensity of colour, scent and sensual surrounding.

    The outdoor lifestyle
    Life spills over quite simply and naturally to the outdoors. Its rejuvenates the soul, mind and body.

    Dissolving the boundaries between the inside and the outside
    To reach out to the open, for its abundance of air and light energy. To connect the interiors with exteriors and be surrounded with nature.

    A sense of belonging
    To create a cohesive Framework which enriches to a visual source and a sense of belonging to nature.

    What price are you looking at?

    Actually, was willing to pay up to $880k for 1335sqft 3BR at stack 7 to 13. I consulted my uncle who was very experienced in property investment, and was given a "lecture" by him.
    1. There is not much investment values to purchase a property at Far North.
    2. There is not point to purchase a new property as it is at least 20% more expensive than a resales one.
    3. In Far North, potential upgraders are budget buyers whom are not willing to pay a premium for property ( I happened to be one of them), hence I will have issue selling it later.
    4. With a budget of $800k to $1M, I can easily get a 2BR at D15 district which is freehold.

    Lastly, my agent had checked with several banks and the highest valuation given is $830k, and most owner going to sell from $900k onwards. Good luck to first owner on DPS scheme when TOP come.

    Now I had almost give up hope to buy an unit at Northwood.

    No need to rush in if you have a roof over your head. Take your time... the banks needs time to do their work.

    Properties in the north are mainly for self stay folks... with room for a little capital gain. Generally still able to gain... just not as much as other areas...

    no developer interested in 2 land parcels for sale for sometime... one beside lilydale and one beside Yishun Emerald... although both 99 years lease... they are better in location that this one.

    Yes, no rush for a roof. Not sure about your point 2. Checked
    and confirmed that Seletaris and Euphony Garden first owners suffered loss. Recently trasactions at Sensoria also pointing to the same trend - Resales at 599 - 642 psf while owner in Jun 07 get around 634 psf

    I do agree that Far North has not much investment value and also selling it may be difficult next time as the condo is only attractive to people who are currently staying in the North. Hence I am very concern abt buying at such high price.

    Maybe should change my focus back to Calrose instead...

    Forget to mention that the first 3 transactions of Northwood were also sold at a loss.

    Yes... thanks for the correction... i meant to say HDB's.... after the 97/98 peak.

    Generally private in the north has little room for price appreciation... some owners suffferred losses also...both ways... never a case of all owners suffered losses. Timing and selection criteria is very important.

    U mean the 3 transactions that we have seen so far are the only sub sale that Northwood has?

    Wow....looks kind of hard to sell but then again maybe most bot for own stay hence all not selling....
