    Of course lah u r entitled to ur belief. True also lah if everyone is at ur stage of life and has the resources to buy a 2nd property or more to classify it/them as investment. Alas not all are at ur stage of life yet and/or do not have the resources to buy a 2nd property. Hence this may be their first property and thus it's for their own stay purposes. I presume years ago u were also once a believer of own stay but have already moved on ever since after fulfilling that primary objective and have also acquired enough resources to reach out to your investment horizon. So moral of the story is - different people got different needs different wants different wishes (different beliefs). To each his own (belief).

    1st time buyer huh? Have u bought a unit yet?

    515 units being sold as reported in the media based on the
    1) information or
    2) press release or
    3) update to SGX
    from the developer based on the number of otp (option to purchase) signed, usually on the spot in the showflat / showroom / showsuite together with numerous documents endorsed by the buyer, the property agent and the developer, but before the acknowledgment from the lawyer and the loan approval from the banker.

    33 units with caveats lodged is after all the legal documents from the lawyers of both developer and buyer and all the loan documents from the banker of the buyer have been completed, processed, approved, distributed and documented. No caveat is lodged if banker is not involved in this process, aka no bank loan required.

    Difference between the these two:- timing difference from a few weeks to 1-2 months.

    Why some cheaper some more expensive? - hard to analyze and speculate and deduce without more info such as which stack and which floor. Many factors play a part in price determination. Best to check with your friendly neighbourhood property agent. Alternatively, subscribe and pay a fee to www.squarefoot.com.sg and you can get all the details there.

    The real estate giant earned S$143 million in the three months ended March, a 104 per cent from S$70 million in the same period a year ago.

    Frasers Centrepoint Q2 net profit doubles on fair value gain

    SINGAPORE: Local real estate giant Frasers Centrepoint Ltd (FCL) reported on Friday (May 8) a doubling of net profit for the fiscal second quarter, helped by fair value gains of S$44 million arising from the increased value of its properties.

    FCL, which owns or manages more than S$22 billion worth of assets, earned S$143 million in the three months ended March, an increase of 104 per cent from S$70 million in the same period a year ago.

    Its revenue remained relatively stable at S$442 million, as new streams of contribution from Australand Property Group and six hotels acquired by Frasers Hospitality Trust helped offset lower contributions from development projects in Australia and the United Kingdom.

    Looking ahead, FCL said it plans to grow its business and asset portfolio in a balanced manner across geographies and property segments. The firm will also seek opportunities to unlock value in its portfolio via asset enhancement or repositioning efforts, as well as through possible injection of stabilised assets into the real estate investment trusts (REITs) that it manages.

    On its Singapore operations, FCL said its most recent property launch - the 920-unit North Park Residences - was well received with 515 units, or close to 80 per cent of the launched units, sold as at May 7.

    The group recently completed extensive renovation works at Valley Point Shopping Centre, while asset enhancement initiatives at Centrepoint are scheduled to begin this month.
